Our family hadn’t been here for a couple of years, but we got tired of the restaurants we usually go to around Bridge park area of Dublin. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed this time. Two out of the three of us found our entrees way to salty. Overly salty foods seem to be the norm now at so many restaurants. The atmosphere has never been that appealing to us, and we don’t feel that there are enough healthy menu options. At least the server was friendly and attentive. I don’t think we will be going back.

Food was very salty and not that great. It was warm not hot. Waitress was nice. Not sure I can recommend base in the food.

We arrived and were startled that no one was wearing masks! OK we were in Dublin but COVID doesn’t care.

We nonetheless had a pleasant evening with very good food and service. Dynamite shrimp and crab Rangoon appetizers were delicious. Phad Thai wonderfully sweet and spicy. Mongolian beef had lots of delicious flank steak and carmelized onions. My blackened tuna with coconut shrimp was good and my favorite dish to eat there but was not as good as other times I’ve had it. Still I ate every bite and my dinner companions enjoyed the sharing. Our server recommended the Lyeth red wine blend. It was lucious!

We had a great experience here for dinner this evening :-)
It was my grandson’s 9th birthday, and he chose this restaurant for his birthday dinner.
Great food, excellent service, friendly staff!
My granddaughter eats gluten free, and my youngest son is vegan, and they were able to accommodate all of our needs. Thanks again for a wonderful evening!

Tucci’s chefs, servers and hostess always exceed expectations at a exceptional value. Ive entertained at far more expensive restaurants that don’t come close to Tucci’s !!

Service was great. Food was pretty good.

There is a clear issue with management and communication in this location because we ordered 2 apps and neither came, and we were told it was because the orders were backed up.

First off, great food, not just good food. Attentive staff, felt like they appreciate your business. Only thing I did not like and it was not a deal breaker was the noise level but when you have great food and service, it's the price you pay. Great time and will go again and recommend to others.

Unfortunately this wasn’t a good experience for our party. We ordered the chicken fried rice and it was inedible. The rice was so sticky it didn’t come off the fork easily, and the chicken had a weird smell (like dirty feet)….. we couldn’t even eat it. I’m not even sure the chicken wasn’t spoiled?? This was heartbreaking because this is one of our favorite restaurants.

Maybe we will try again sometime.

The waiter was super attentive and all of our food was out quick. The bartender made the best martini! We recommend the calamari, house salad, ahi tuna bowl, Mongolian beef, dynamite roll, and crazy tuna roll.

This was a perfect place for date night. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great dining experience! Also the grilled avocado was by far my favorite thing I had, definitely recommend trying it!

We were really expecting a more fine-dine experience. We could have gone to any tavern or biker bar and had the experience we had at J. Liu. Too many drunks, too many tattoos and way, way too much shouting. If we had not made a reservation, we would have turned around and gone elsewhere.

Extremely disappointing. I ordered the salmon. It came promised to be caramelized with a mango salsa topping, broccoli and coconut rice. The broccoli was simply steamed, no flavor or seasoning… come on J Lui chefs…you can do better than that! The salmon was undercooked , no caramelization and little mango salsa. The rice looked like a cafeteria lady scooped it on the plate. It was overall a pretty bland dish and hardly worth the $29 they charge for it.
My husband got the pasta Diablo and it barely had any sausage or shrimp in it. Restaurants have got yo understand that if you are going to charge more for your meal, you can’t continue to cut back on the food quantity or quality or people will not return.
The service was beyond slow and the restaurant was 1/2 empty. It took them 45 minutes to bring our entrees.
We were extremely disappointed. Don’t know if I will go back

Had a great birthday dinner for my mom there! A little pricey but the service was excellent and we were even greeted at the end by who I believe to be the owner. He even took the time to get to know us and what we were celebrating and chat with my family for a bit!
