    My husband and I were put at a table in a room where a party of 17 were seated about 20 minutes after we arrived. It was very very noisy. When we were leaving, we passed by the main dining room which was quiet and so pleasant. And there were a few empty tables there.

    This is a specilal place for us to go, it normally needs to be an "occasion". We started with an appetizer, might I recommend the Samurai Nachos. They were most excellent, and plenty for 2 to share. Husband got Pad Thai, which is one of his faves and I went in for the Turkey Dinner. Possibly the best turkey I have ever had. I would go back, for the same meal in a shot. It was that good. Thanks for being open on a day when most places are closed. We shall return!

    I have been to J Liu with many of my employees over the last year. The highs and lows remain fairly consistent. Food and food choices are very good. Service is fine as long as there are few patrons. Once half full -service can move slowly. Our waiter last night apologized twice. Our drinks were $17.00 a piece so I expected much better service. When the bar is full - even with a lighter restaurant volume - it is loud and you can find yourself shouting to those at your own table. If you want to have a conversation - ask for a time that is a little slower.

    The staff was friendly, the prices were reasonable and the food was great. We did not have anything that wasn’t very tasty. Especially liked the Brussel sprouts and the ribeye. But the salad and the lobster bisque were also great. Our only small complaint was the noise level was high which seemed to be because the annex room we were in was basically a big square and echoed quite a bit. But this was not a deal breaker at all and the food was so good!

    The absolute worst service I have ever had. First it took a long time for 2 cocktails, one of those drinks was awful (pretty sure they didn’t make it correctly and this was one of their specialty drinks). Then it took over 45 minutes for 4 sushi rolls. We were served 2 of the rolls then 5-10 minutes later the other 2 came out. These were our main course. The waitress only came over once in the 45 minutes to tell us our order will be out soon. I wouldn’t recommend eating here. This was the second time we ate here and we had the same issues the first time also. This is an example of how bad management ruins a restaurant. Hostess was not dressed to be a hostess. Manager wasn’t dressed as a manager. 1 bartender on a Saturday night? 2 waitresses for a dining room? Food is ok, it’s not worth the hassle. We will never go to either location again. Be wary if you can get a reservation at 4 pm on a Saturday for 2 hours later. Don’t have high expectations.

    J. Liu Restaurant & Bar of DublinResponded on November 7, 2022I would like to begin by apologizing to your wife and child. They were not meant to see that kind of behavior from the patriarch of the family. I also would like to mention that you conveniently left out the fact that you cussed my hostesses and my server, all of whom are teenagers. I wasn't dressed as a manager because I chose to support our football team on a winning day. Also, you left out the fact that I asked you to leave because of the embarrassment you caused to yourself and your family.

    Friday evening, the restaurant was full and lively, noise level was perfect, the other guests’ tables’ enthusiasm and energy around the restaurant was infectious! In a world where restaurants are often understaffed, J Liu had plenty on hand to ensure all of its guests were well cared for. The bar was lively, inviting. I can see why it’s a go-to for many Dublin locals! We will return soon as there are so many amazing options from the menu to try! Cheers to the chef for such flavorful and beautifully presented appetizers and entrees!

    As for a last minute decision, we decided to check Open Table and J. Lui's Dublin had an opening. It is great they have their own parking as it can be difficult to find in this area. We started with drinks which were well prepared (new Manhattan and dirty martini), appetizer of spring rolls which were crispy and pared well with the sweet lime chili sauce. Too bad we just missed Happy Hour pricing. I ordered the Mongolian Beef with fried rice and my wife a side house salad and Chophouse burger. My meal was delicious and the meat very tender. Only comment is that it could have been spicier - but the flavor was excellent. My wife's salad had all the right stuff and the burger well prepared and a nice blend of flavors. I have not had a bad meal or have been disappointed ever in coming here. I recommend highly.

    Odd menu, Italian and Asian? Maybe just pick one and run with it… it was a very generic experience from ambiance to food quality. The service was fine, although they served us nachos and never brought out napkins which was odd. I will say, those nachos were good but entrees and sushi were subpar. Definitely won’t go back and wouldn’t advise anyone to waste their time here. For Italian, there is a great restaurant nearby and for Asian, I’m sure you can find better.

    J. Liu Restaurant & Bar of DublinResponded on October 31, 2022Hello, thank you for your kindness review. We are serving Italian and Asian dish for the last 17 years since 2005. I apologize about your experience and we will keep working harder. Thank you!

    We had a really nice time at J. Liu. The food was phenomenal. My wife got the poke bowl and I got the salmon, both were top notch. We also had calamari (and loved the peppers mixed in!) and carrot cake for dessert. The cocktails were tasty as well. The ambience was louder than we expected, which we didn't mind but just be aware of that if you visit. Our server, Jordan, was on top of it! We will certainly be back.

    I arrived to our dinner reservation 30 minutes early and wanted to grab a drink and read my book until everyone else showed up. The bar was very loud and dark, so I asked to sit at my table (it was very early so not many diners yet). I believe it was the manager who brought me water but told me if I wanted a Happy Hour drink, I had to have it in the bar area. This was kind of annoying as I just wanted to read my book at the table. I did end up walking over to the bar and sitting with my drink until our reservation time. I found it unaccommodating because the bar was clearly loud and dark and I was just ordering one drink. Would have been nice for her to just grab it for me. The food was good, but I think next time I will try somewhere a little more eager to make my wait more enjoyable.

    The food was great. The chef/owner came out at the end of the meal and asked how our experience was. While I booked a 7:30 reservation, when we arrived, we were told by the hostess/waitress that they were closing at 8. I had to ask a couple of questions to clarify that the KITCHEN was closing at 8, and we just needed to get our food order in. I initially felt like we couldn’t eat dinner there. Food was wonderful- just better way to explain that we needed to get our order in before 8 would have been nice.

    It was delicious. We each had a medium rare filet, mashed potatoes, and a salad. I went without the glaze or hollandaise, which was absolutely not needed. We sat outside and had great service. It was a little loud at times, but that's to be expected since there's a street right there.
