Went for special birthday celebration just 4 of us. Have always loved the restaurant. Three out of the four meals were horrible. Two of us ordered the grouper in which our server raved about. It was so fishy and served over bed of sliced raw green onions. Honesty a McDonald's filet of fish would have tasted better. Another guest ordered the short ribs. The ribs were full of fat also almost not edible. We did share two sides of mac and cheese and grilled vegetables we only ate small amount of those too due to the taste. We were asked how our meal was several times and we felt bad complaining but did say fish was not good. That was taken off bill which was nice. However evening was ruined there was not one thing about the food we would ever go back for. Service was great and ambiance but certainly not worth the money.

Any of Jeff Ruby's establishments will always be my family's choice for special occasions. Simply the best food, drinks, and service in the industry.

We have enjoyed C&JS many times, tbis time our server seemed over booked, I waited 20 minutes for drink refills both times. Very disappointing. After bill was brought to our table we felt like we were being rushed out the door. Not very enjoyable when fine dinning

Great food, Dan our server and assistant Josh did a fabulous job. Dan was very personable and really cared that we enjoyed our meal. Food was at the right temperature. Prawns very fresh. Freddie salad delicious. They were very accommodating in splitting our meal for us. This is always a wonderful experience but Dan was the best server we have had there.

We go to CJs about every other month. The food is always excellent. A little pricey, but the steak is one of the best in town. The sides are so-so, some might expect more for a pricey/high-end steakhouse. The guys at the valet station always remember us and are awesome. We sat in the back room which is a little chilly being next to outdoor patio at this time of year. Service was so-so this evening. Think the server had too many tables (or we assume), as he forgot things often and it was tough to get him to concentrate on us (forgot bread, feel like we had to force our dinner order on him, forgot lemons, didn't come back to check on us at various points, forgot it was a birthday and didn't recognize as they usually do, forgot to confirm no green beans until the food came out). We've had him before and he's a nice guy, but possibly a busy night. Lobster bisque was too salty --- wish they would add the Habanero tomato soup back to menu and white truffle cream corn (which seems "out of season" at different seasons each year). Also annoyed open table was informed we did not fill our table when we were actually there. Just another confirmation I had to do which wasted my time. Overall, we love CJs and will be back, but this night was not our favorite experience.
