This is my husband and my go to date restaurant but this time we came with my 2 daughters and his dad and sister for a family birthday dinner. I wasn’t worried about bringing the kids as I’ve seen other families here before. The atmosphere is upscale but not too fine dining; the bar is is usually happening but separated from the dining room in a way that keeps the place lively without being to loud or rowdy. My kids loved it and asked to go back again; my 10 year old tried sushi for the first time (which is delicious btw). My father in law said the chicken parm was the best he’s ever had. Looks like it has gone from our date night to family dinner restaurant.

Food did not disappoint! Although I'm sure it was due to Covid, it was nice that the restaurant was quiet and could have a conversation with out shouting. Waitress was nice but never did ask how our meal was or ask if we wanted dessert or anything further. I ordered a to go container of the house dressing which I've gotten before and I got half the amount for the same price as before. Seems very random on what you get on that. But the meal was excellent!

Sitting on the patio was lovely! Our cocktails were perfect with our delicious calamari and flatbread. The house salads were so fresh and the salmon was cooked perfectly! Our server was simply excellent! A well seasoned individual. We will be back!

Many outdoor tables. We sat in the bar and had great service. Steaks were delicious. Ambiance of the main dining room was harsh. Not intimate as in the past. this was our first visit in over a year so not sure if the change is due to Covid.

I have always loved J Liu Dublin. The service is great even during this time. Andre has always been a favorite of mine. I was so happy that he is still with them.

I think the calamari here is the best in Columbus. They will make it to suit your spice taste. The salmon is also a great choice.

We had a great experience at J Lui! Our server Andre was AWESOME! I would come back to this restaurant just to have him as our server. He took such good care of us and provided good suggestions for the food. He was interesting and fun, yet very professional. The food was very good.

The only slight complaint I would offer is that we couldn't take advantage of the Happy Hour on the Patio.

One of our favorites. We ate on their covered patio, so there was a lot of street noise.

The food, as always, was excellent. But, the dining room is too "live" and even with a reduced number of customers, it was, in my opinion, too loud.

Made reservation and asked if we could have the 1 table left outside. We were told no as they were holding that for a larger party. Table was still free when we left and they had added another 2 top on the sidewalk. Beautiful day and we wanted to sit outside. Food was great and server was awesome. Just wasn’t impressed with how we had to sit inside while a 4 top remained empty and another party of 2 was seated outside on the sidewalk.

We loved our waitress! Only complaint is that the guy at the table next to us kept pulling up chairs and adding people to his table..which made them close to us. But we loved our food and sitting on the patio!

Service was just ok on a Saturday at lunch when almost no one else was even In the restaurant. Lunch started at 11:00 and it was noon when we had our reservation. The soup of the day wasn’t cooked yet and so I ordered a burger medium well. When it arrives it was charred and very well done. Totally ruined any taste it might have had originally. Very disappointing.
