The service was a little slow
The service was a little slow but the food was very good which made up for the slowness. We will be going back.

This is a place I will continue
This is a place I will continue to come back to. The wait staff is attentive, our glasses never got empty. The food was excellent and prepared to your liking. I definitely recommend the pimento cheese appetizer. Not normally a fan of pimento cheese, but this was awesome with dried fruit and crackers.

Loved the food and service.
Loved the food and service. Even though it looks small, quite spacious for a romantic dinner for two and enough space for larger dinner parties. Cannot wait to vist when it is warmer and sit on their outdoor terrace and listen to live music. BTW, get the calamari appetizer...YUM!!!

Both my wife and I enjoyed
Both my wife and I enjoyed the Crabcake Benedict that was served with a Grit Cake and fresh fruit. Our table, while fairly close to other diners, was set in a small niche that provided a feeling of privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with the MJ Family.

Exceeded my expectations
I was certainly prepared to have a nice meal at MJ's, but it turned out to be much better than I expected. Perhaps this is because I really didn't know what to expect of a restaurant in Greensboro, as we were visiting. It was very good, indeed. My family of four had salads, salmon, fish of the day, and a steak. All were very well prepared and presented, and were quite yummy. Nice wine list. The restaurant is in a charming house, and the back porch area looked like a fun place to dine, had it not been chilly. We would definitely return to MJ's!

Would recommend MJs
MJs is a fun place to eat with an intimate feel that gives the diner a sense of being in someone's home. The food for our meal was good although I felt my salmon was without much flavor. Everything else served was very good and had some unique qualities such as homemade pimento cheese with prosciutto and dried fruit for an appetizer. The desserts were especially good. At our table, we had the vanilla bean chocolate cake and the pineapple coconut cake. Very good. The service was superb. We were very well taken care of. I would recommend MJs to others.

Always great, food and service
Always great, food and service are consistently exceptional.

We thought the food was good. Thought the alcohol (cocktails & wine) were quite expensive, especially for Greensboro. We will return but not for the alcohol -- have a cocktail at home before arriving.

Always a favorite spot for us for special occasions.

My husband and I took his parents out to celebrate their anniversary. This was our time going to MJ's, and we were very impressed. We had clam chowder, grouper, rack of lamb and angolati pasta dishes - all were outstanding. The desserts and French pressed coffee were excellent. The service, wine list and ambiance were great. We sat outside - they have a fantastic patio! Highly recommend - we'll be going back soon :)

The food was great. I had a scallop with lobster mashed potatoes (large chunks of lobster) and it was the perfect. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and knowledgable concerning product as well as food allergy information. I would definitely go there again. They are supposed to have live music on the weekends, but with the weather they did not. Hate that we missed that part..

We attented a four course wine dinner June 3. Spanish wines were featured and the food pairings worked very well. Chef Tad did his usual excellent job with the food, service was efficient and friendly without being intrusive, and we learned a bit about Spanish wines. This was an excellent evening.

Really glad we went to this
Really glad we went to this restaurant. Excellent food and service. The patio is simply charming. Will return again and again. This is a hidden gem in Greensboro.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is imaginative and food is well prepared. Service is always excellent. The patio is one of the best outdoor venues in town. The wine list is extensive and well thought out. Dining here is always a pleasure.

We had a great time at MJ's! We wanted to sit outside but it was raining. Inside was great. Service was awesome and food too! Cant wait to go back!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Intimate and delicious
This restaurant is always great. Food is always imaginative and delicious. Staff are always knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. Settled in an older house brings a certain charm that you're not going to get at a strip mall. Overall, awesome, consistently.

Thank you as always...
Thank you for once again being part of a special occasion for our family!!! Everything was great! We love you guys!

Tastey, Hidden Gem!
After only one visit ... We are addicted! Their wine list & craft beer selection has something for all to enjoy. We decided on the Tuna tartare for an appetizer which was wrapped in smoke salmon! It was incredible & left my mouth watering & wanting more! For dinner, I had the seared scallops on a bed of lobster mashed potatoes and sprinkled with prosciutto ... Absolutely to die for & super fresh! My boyfriend had the bone-in pork chop with greens which was beautifully prepared and juicy at that! The food needless to say exceeded all of our expectations & the service was impeccable! We can not wait to return and see what the revolving menu has to offer next season!

Looking at the name, and the reviews, before I made reservations. I thought the menu would be a lot larger than it was. A top notch restaurant. The people were friendly, and very courteous.
The only thing I do not agree with is the 20% tip included on a party of 6. The checks were split 3 ways so my party actually only had 4 people. With my bill of 4 people being over $200 a $40 tip just from me was a little extreme. I always tip very good anyway, but $40 is a bit much just for my bill. Then add the other two parties, and the waiter got probably $52. That is a lot. I spend $200 at the melting pot, and usually only leave $25, and the waiter or waitress is fine with that, and I think that is suitable. A good experience. The food was great.

Haven;t been to MJ's in a while, so decided to give it a try. We were very please and will add to our regular rotation. Food was great and we love the patio.

Our Frist Visit, more to come!
We had an early reservation (6PM) The Tuna appetizer was very good. I think it should be served with some bread squares. The two sauces were very good, i wish they had be a little more generous with them. Oyster Salad was Great! My wife had the Sea Bass and she said that it was wonderful. It was more of a "steak" cut than a fillet and it was very good. The Lobster Mashed potato's were also very good! I had the Lobster which was a special offering. It was very good. It was served with warm potato salad which was okay, but i would of preferred the Lobster mashed potato's after seeing my wife's reaction to them. We had Key Lime Cheesecake for desert and it was very good. I noticed that they allow BYOB Wine. Wish I had known....

MJs Continues to Impress
We had another wonderful experience dining at MJs. It is consistently excellent and a great place for lunch as well as dinner.

Overall a great find. They showed imagination in their menu items that flowed nicely from course to course. Pricey for this area but I think worth it. Will go back again!

it was delicious
Its all about the food, service and atmosphere
Great dining but also nice live music and a wonderful patio in addition to the quaint interiors.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful patio and great music...
Food was very good although not inspiring. Beautiful patio and a cool end of summer evening made it a wonderful evening. Singer/guitarist did all original music and was too good for the small audience.

I made a 10pm reservation for 2 on opentable for MJs. Got there a little early and the table was ready. Service was great. Food was impeccable. The Scottish Salmon was one of the best dishes I have ever experienced. An impressive restaurant on all facets.

Girls night out...
Several friends and I were getting together and were interested in good food, good wine, and great atmosphere. We got all 3... Love the patio... beautiful evening!! We hadn't seen each other in a while and wanted somewhere where we could talk and hear each other! Love the menu and the wait staff was awesome! HIGHLY recommend - which is why I frequent there!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone enjoyed their dinner in a Lovely setting. Staff greeting warm and welcoming. Wait staff could do a little better; I had to look for 2x. Thank you so much.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the second time I'd dined at MJ's and both times were excellent. The side dishes serve as perfect accompaniment to the main entree. I had seafood on both occasions and it was excellent. My only complaint is the limited wine selection.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of a kind!
I cannot recommend MJ's enough. Everything about the experience is phenomenal! From the minute you walk in the door you know you are someplace unique and special. The restaurant itself is beautful and cozy and very tastefully decorated. I was very impressed with the bar area; it was very warm and inviting. The inside dining area is small, but there is ample space between tables, so you don't feel crowded at all. The outside patio was very large and spacious; truly a beautiful atmosphere. The food was absolutely delicious, served perfectly cooked and piping hot. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and gave us lots of good recommendations. She was very friendly and we enjoyed talking to her throughout the evening.

Will be back soon!
Great food selection and all selections at our table were amazing. So glad that we stumbled upon this place while searching for a place to take my mother inlaw while visiting for the weekend. We can not wait to make another visit and enjoy more of the wonderful chef creations!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The outdoor patio was very nice and private. We ordered the calamari and it was awesome! I ordered the mahi mahi w lobster mashed potatoes w aspargus. Very tasty!! Will defintely go back.

Overall a very good experience.
Overall a very good experience. Catfish and The Pork chop were very well prepared and the vegetables were excellent. The wine list was limited and quite pricey.

We used our two for one pre-symphony coupons and were surprised at the wonderful special three course meal served.
We will definitly go back to enjoy the regular menu.
