Would not go back

I've had ubber tasting menus with super-ubber prices, and yes this is expensive, but I think it was not outrageous. Quality was okay, but it cannot compete with the Napa equivalents.\r \r One negative I did not miss, when someone brings their own bottle the staff should open it in front of you, pour a little to taste, and so forth. Our server took the bottle away and it came back open. That may be a non-issue fo... view more

We had a good memory - not anymore!

We took my hubbys Grandma on Saturday and were very disappointed. We had the 4 courses with wine pairings, $140 each, my husband upgraded his appetizer to the fois gras (+ $15), we added one cheese plate (+ $25) with wine (+ $10 ea). With t&t, it was $700.\r \r We have been lucky to eat at a lot of good restaurants - including Gary Danko, Farallon, Parcel 104, the Ahwahnee, Alexanders, Aquarello, and in October we ... view more

Small Portions, Large Prices

Be sure to bring your own magnifying glass! The portions were too small to choke a toddler, but the bill was astronomical ($320 for the two of us). When we arrived home, my husband reached for the pizza and I grabbed a bowl of cereal. This felt like something out of a Seinfeld episode. We'll stick with Le Petit Bistro for our French fixes.

A Big Disappointment !

We went to this restaurant, for the first time, to celebrate my birthday In February of 2008. Compared with other French restaurants, it was a big disappointment. To start with, the girl at the desk could not find our reservation and made us feel very unwelcome, until she found it.\r As for the food, never have we paid so much for so little. All the servings, although tasty, were so small that we went home... view more

Chez TJ has fallen off track

Have been to Chez TJ four times in the past 3 1/2 years for b'day and other celebrations. The first visit was smooth as silk, but subsequent meals have been less than stellar. On our last visit (Dec, 2007) the meal was mediocre at best. Being a vegetarian (with occasional seafood) in California is usually never an issue. Beware the vegetarian meal at Chez TJ. Prior to the visit, I emailed the restaurant and requested... view more

Great wines

Dined on Friday, Nov 2 for anniversary dinner due to Michelin 2-star rated recently in the San Jose Mercury. Slight confusion when we checked in for our 7:00 pm reservation. 3 parties checked in at the same time, which should not be a problem for an experienced hostess, but another employee had to be called on how to read the computer to see what table we would be seated strike 1. When we were seated, we r... view more

This emperor has very few clothes

If all you care about is the 2 Michelin stars, then try it. But if you want a wonderful dining experience, and especially the kind of service that one might hope for at this price, go elsewhere. We have lived in the Bay Area for 5+years and regularly enjoy restaurants such as La Folie, Chez Robert, Myth, Range, Quince, Aqua, Chez Panisse, Gary Danko, etc. Danko stands out because of its combination of innovative cuis... view more

Outstanding food and service

From the moment we arrived, the staff at Chez TJ made sure that our experience was fantastic. They were attentive without being obtrusive. The food was delicious and the restaurant setting beautiful. I especially enjoyed when Chef Kostow came by the table to talk to us. \r \r The menu is playful and the dishes elegantly showcase the freshness and quality of the ingredients. My favorite was the raspberry and ch... view more

Impressed with service, quality and cuisine.

When I'm in town on business this is my ""close the deal' venue. I count on the professional service, excellent cuisine and a private rooms to finish my discussions with VIP clients.

A Hierarchy of Service

This was so obnoxious. My wife and I went here for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful until dessert. The couple sitting next to us received mulitply dessert dishes ""compliments of the chef"", which is not a big deal, except we were the only other couple in the room (the other couple was French, and the wait staff found this ""interesting""). So after having to listen to the waitor talk to them for 5 min... view more
