unfortunately my food (main course)was just kind of unremarkable (potstickers and dessert were good) which is a shame when you expect a great meal

Loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and gave helpful menu suggestions. I ordered a salad with blackened salmon. The salmon was excellent. The salad was just okay. I would have liked greens other than iceberg and more chopped veggies. The price point was also affordable.

I had not been to either J. Liu's when we picked this spot. It is in a semi-historic building in Dublin that has been tastefully decorated. We met friends whom we had not seen for awhile, so it was easy to catch up in the quiet atmosphere on a Monday night. I was on a slightly restricted diet due to an impending medical procedure, but was able to find dishes that fit the bill. We will go back there.

We go to J Liu several times a year, which means a lot with the quantity and quality of restaurants offered in Dublin and Columbus. Food is always consistently good. Cocktails good, but the manhattans a bit on the small side, according to my friends who ordered. Wine was good and bottles are reasonably priced. Good service and server had a fun personality.

Brunch at J.Liu was fantastic. The food and service was amazing and the brunch buffet plentiful. The noise level was such that we could converse without feeling like we needed to yell. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for anything from a date to a family gathering.

Once again, J Liu does an outstanding job taking care of us for a major business lunch. From the table that was set up for 8 so we could have an effective meeting & meal, to Dave’s always impeccable service with a smile & wry sense of humor, to the fantastic dishes & appetizers that all raved about. As always, you guys rock and are always our go to place for our business lunches. Cheers!

Early New Year’s Eve dinner with friends. Great atmosphere, quiet, could be romantic. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I would recommend this establishment for couples, friends and small groups.
