Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had brunch at J Liu this past weekend and decided it was a great way to kick off our Sunday. From the warm welcome when we walked in the door, to the exceptional service table side, and the amazing food, it was fabulous! From the little make your own parfaits served in mini martini glasses, to the exceptional prime rib and chocolate covered strawberries, we loved every second. J liu is our favorite Sunday brunch, hands down!"

  • "There was a nice variety of options on the menu and they were willing to make changes to meet our dietary needs. It was delicious."

  • "Mushy strawberries some with black spots, same menu over time, inexperienced undertrained and uninformed waiter who told us he was congested. Such a disappointment after being one of our favorite"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "J. Liu has a great patio atmosphere for the downtown Dublin area (esp. as there are not many patios) The service is always fast & friendly and the food is always outstanding. It would be nice if Happy Hour pricing extended to the patio as the bar area is always filled up and not suitable for larger parties. Overall the experience was great and we always have a fantastic time."

  • "Buffet selections were pleasing. A variety of dessert morsels completed the dining experience. We will return once we walk off our overindulgence of tasty food."

  • "I have eaten there many times - the Asian food, in particular, is the best in town. Slads are great, and the rolls with the flavored olive oil is/are fantastic."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed all of our entrees along with the wine! Towards the end we felt a little rushed when the server took my fiancé's plate while he was still working on it. I had asked the server to box up a couple of the entrees we did not finish, she only came back with my dads meal boxed up and when I asked where my short ribs were she said she threw them away. She explained she was going to take some things off the bill and when we looked at it she only took off $10.00, I figured she would at least comp my meal since I had only eaten a little bit of it but that wasn't the case. We will still return, I just wish more was done to fix the mistake."

  • "My GF reserved a place for us for my B-Day. The menu is bland, our food wad disgusting I mean absolutely disgusting! Worse experience I have ever had at a so-called upscale restaurant. We don't like to make a fuss, so we didn't ask to return our food but it was obvious because we had only taken one bite each of both of our meals. The food was under and over cooked respectively and how do you screw up a hamburger I mean come on? I wouldn't send anyone to this place, even if I was starving and this was the only place open, i would go without. How are they still in business? Utterly disgusted and disappointed!"

  • "We enjoyed our recent visit to J. Liu's. Enjoyed a beautiful evening on the patio, especially the delicious meals and wonderful service. Special tip of the hat to the bar - they can make a fabulous margarita! Would highly recommend for a special occasion, or just a nice relaxing dinner out."

  • "It's puzzling to me why this restaurant is so popular. Food and service are unimpressive. I should have known we were in trouble when I ordered a Tom Collins and got some greenish drink in a short (vs. highball) glass with a lime on it instead of a cherry. It tasted more like a Margarita, not a Tom Collins. Our two appetizers were OK, but the waiter should have let us know that the chicken lettuce wraps came in a portion large enough for four people. Several pieces of meat in my Pad Thai entree had gristle in them and were inedible. The waiter forgot to bring bread. I asked the busboy for chili oil and he never brought it so I had to ask the waiter. My husband ordered the special Mahi Mahi; it was bland and cost $32. We won't be back."

  • "I have dined at J Liu more than 15 times and enjoy the varied menu. The prices are reasonable compared to some other high end Columbus restaurants. My personal favorite is the appetizer of mussels. The use of jalapeno peppers with the mussels adds a unique flavor that I have not found elsewhere. I can heartily recommend the restaurant."

  • "The staff was very courteous and professional. The food was terrific. I liked the ability to reserve our table on-line and to receive a phone call from the restaurant confirming the reservation so that everything was ready for us when we arrived. Our out-of-town guest really enjoyed the overall atmosphere and the variety of options on the menu."

  • "Our food was prepared promptly and the service was excellent. They went above and beyond to make sure my group of 6 friends had an enjoyable time with delicious food!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The service was attentive and the food was plentiful & delicious! I also appreciate that the restaurant called me to let me know that I left a personal belonging at the table. Since I live outside of Columbus, it is especially helpful that they offered to mail me my belonging. THANK YOU!!"

  • "As the title says, we went for an early Mother's Day brunch. The food was good, but I felt that it wasn't much more than they usually do. It also seemed like there were some extra tables added in, but pretty much every place does that for a holiday. Overall, everything was good and I'd go back again anytime. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Staff was amazing. Menu seemed like they were trying too hard - too many types of food - although the combinations were interesting. We tried Mongolian beef, good flavor but too much sauce, and too sweet for our taste - beef was fatty. Also tried the smoked pork chop special - chop was delicious, but potatoes were luke warm and seemed as though they were cooked too many hours before. Great little area - I'm more likely to try something else in the neighborhood."

  • "The food was nominal. This is our third visit to J. Liu. We have never been impressed, but this visit was definitely our last."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "This is the first time I come for brunch to JLiu. Buffet was very good, but disappointed with the cost.... At 20 dollars per person, beverages or at least coffee should be included in the price.... For this reason I will not come back unless there is a special occasion "

  • "My husband and I decided on J Liu for his birthday dinner since he had his heart set on the Scallop risotto. When we arrived, the waitress, as always was friendly, energetic and excited to be at work. She advised us of the special, prosciutto wrapped salmon on portobello mushroom risotto and grilled aspragus accompanied along with a demi glase (can't remember the type of glase). It was to die for. They've given the new chef free reign to come up with specials and this one should be on the menu. Seriously the best salmon I've ever eaten. I would give the chef 6 stars if I could, probably more. His dish was worth more than the $28.00, would have paid much more for the quality, taste and presentation."

  • "It was a very pleasant night, had a bottle of wine, apps and desert. Waitress was awesome"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We made a last minute reservation and had another enjoyable meal. We got great service without being rushed. I am hooked on the wedge salad here although I do substitute bleu cheese. Had the burger special this time, it was good."

  • "This is the third year we have enjoyed Easter Brunch at J. Liu's in Dublin. There is not a huge selection of food, but the food is definitely a couple steps above your traditional brunch fare. The addition of Asian dishes is a nice change. The carved prime rib was perfect. J. Liu's in Dublin is also a great place for everyday lunches, particularly on the patio."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We went for a birthday celebration. Our group included adults and children. Everyone was satisfied with their dining selection, although the oldest grandchild said that they didn't make their kids' meals big enough (growing boy). We even got a free dessert for the birthday girls, which was enjoyed by all. Very noisy but not surprising for a Saturday night. The owner stopped by and chatted for a few minutes, which was nice of him, especially considering how busy they were. "

  • "Since I had no idea of what to expect since an old friend from high school had picked it to meet at, I was pleasantly surprised that it was a pretty nice place. It was a little loud in the bar area, but once we moved to a table to eat it was a moderate noise level. The food was very good, I had a blackened salmon special that was perfect. I wish their wine list was a little more extensive, or at least had less of the California wines on it and more of the better wines from Italy or France. Service was good, the waiter even took a picture as my friend wanted one. Overall, I will go back in the future because the food was very good."

  • "I ordered sesame crusted walleye. It had a few sesame seeds, was overcooked, and placed on a bed of greasy green beans. My partner ordered a tofu stir fry that was extremely greasy even though he asked for no oil."

  • "My girlfriends and I ate dinner here on a Tuesday evening and I'm glad I made reservations. There were only 5 of us meeting up for dinner at 6:30pm but by 7:00pm it was quite busy. Overall it was a good meal. The service was a little slower than usual and one of my girlfriend's meal was a little overcooked but everyone seemed to enjoy their food. I ordered the short rib which I thought was exceptional - the meat was very tender and flavorful. I will definitely come here again but will always make a reservation regardless of what night of the week it is."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Food was alright this time. Lettuce wrap mets was dry and the smoked pork hop was a little too chewy. We do dine here frequently so just have higher expectations when we dine at this great place. Also the bar area noise level is a little too much when your trying to have a nice dinner."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "My fiance ordered the pad thai and I ordered the short rib. The food was wonderful and came out in huge portions. When we arrived there were very few people but the place started to fill up as we left. The waitress was wonderful, helpful and had a great sense of humor. "

  • "After trying their brunch at both locations several times, my recent visit to the Dublin location was the most disappointing.I won't be back. If I had wanted an Asian buffet I could have spent less than $20. When you offer 8 hot items besides the std eggs Benedict and sausage (pressed Brown&Serve vs real sausage links to boot!), chinese food for more than 50% of the entrees is cheap and not up to par & expectations. While the sliced prime rib was delicious, the Mala green bean dish was soggy. Didn't touch the lo mein(seriously?). Regardless if J Lui has an Asian influenced menu, don't want a Chinese buffet whn I go there for their standard brunch. Their holiday brunches have been better executed. Again, NEVER AGAIN."

  • "We really enjoyed eating there! My wife was there before, but it was my first time. Good value for the price we paid for our meals. Highly recommend and needless to say we intend on dinning there again. I'm really a cheap person so for me to say this place offers a great value that means a great deal,"

  • "We brought a group of adventurous and non-adventurous eaters for dinner on a Saturday night. The server was very accommodating of the many questions and had great insight and information about the larger and diverse menu of Asian and other cuisines. She added to the experience such that the non-adventuresome were happy with their choices."
