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.

I've enjoyed both lunch and Easter brunch at J. Liu's. Food and service have always been excellent. It was a cold day when we had lunch. I had the spicy Chicken because I wanted to warm up inside. It was very good, but only mildly spicy. Lunch partner had the crab cake sandwich. I was impressed by the size of the crab cake. It more than filled the bun. She said it tasted great.

The margarita flatbread was the best I’ve ever had! I also love the house salad, but wish it wasn’t $7! The menu got smaller since our last visit but we were still very happy with all of our choices.

HORRIBLE. This was a Thanksgiving buffet that we paid $100 for three people. The carving station was a dried up ham. No prime rib, nothing else. The other food on the cold salad/heating station consisted of the cheapest food ever: rolls, strawberry salad, cheap frozen tasting egg rolls, fishy smelling peal and eat shrimp, rice and veggies, more rice, typical green bean casserole, asian green beans, (why-- oh it's cheap) mashed potatoes, corn casserole, chewy turkey, overcooked asian chicken. The dessert area was not restocked. My husband wanted one chocolate dessert and it was empty, not restocked and the restaurant was not full at 2:45 pm. We were out of there in 30 minutes. I WILL NEVER GO BACK AND HOPE NO ONE ELSE GETS RIPPED OFF BY GOING THERE FOR A HOLIDAY MEAL.

We found the service slow. The food area for brunch was congested and hard to maneuver. The meat station left the meat cold when eating it. The noise level was extremely distracting.
I did enjoy the fresh fruit eggs denidict and shrimp and grits.

I love J Liu brunch! It’s hands down the best in the city and we simply don’t bother with anyplace else. It’s consistently great food at a reasonable price. The servers are always attentive and friendly.

What a lovely brunch buffet!
The French toast is to die for. Possibly the best I've ever had. One half of the buffet had many breakfast items like eggs Benedict, sausage, bacon, fruit, yogurt plus you could order a custom omelette. The other half had breaded tilapia, stir fry, lo mein, prime rib, salad and more. There was a third section of desserts. This is a robust buffet for the price! Plus a Bloody Mary bar! Service was terrific and if it's nice weather, sit out on the terrace.

Drove an hour here for our monthly date night. Great location, great food, great staff, and great value. Would rather have a $100 bill for quality than a $70 one at a chain steak house like, Outback or some other joint. Will visit again when in the neighborhood.

First time, and I was pleasantly surprised. Food was delicious with good variety for all. Pricey but not outrageous. Mala green beans, brisket, pasta diavola were all great. Very good service. We will be back. I can recommend.

I had the Fish & Chips special for lunch, and the felt like the fish came out of a box of frozen patties...the crusting was rock hard...Wished that I had ordered something off of the menu...My guest had the Chicken Diablo (guessing), and that was excellent...

Overall, the service was good along with the ambience...

A group of nine of us went for homecoming and our waiter was phenomenal. He cracked jokes with us and made sure we all had a good time. The food was delicious and I hate to say that we were the only obnoxious ones there. I loved the potstickers and the chicken pesto!

We asked for a booth and were given one, the worst one in the restaurant. The better ones sat empty the whole time we were there. Our view was of highchair storage and exit sign. Wine by the glass choices were meager, food decent but now that there more options in the area J Liu needs to step it up.

Went on a Friday night for an anniversary. It was very crowded. Took awhile for our food. Manager and server apologized for the delay, we understood because it seemed everyone ordered at the same time. Food was excellent and so was the dessert that the manager presented us.
Definitely will return.
