    I’ve driven by J Liu for years, but never stopped in. Learning of a special Mothers’ Day Buffet, I decided to mark a reservation for my family of four. I was very disappointed with my experience. Ambiance - there were several open tables while we were there, but we were seated right up against another table. It was so tight that the back of my chair was touching the back of the chair of the gentleman sitting behind me. Drinks - I got a peach margarita, but it didn’t taste like peach at all. Instead, I got sweet and sour mix with a shot of tequila. Food - The buffet was a bunch of trays around the bar with warm (but not hot) food. I’m a vegetarian, so my options were limited, but my options didn’t seem like they were made fresh. We avoided the dessert table due to a food allergy at our table Price - at $49 a head, the buffet felt overpriced.

    I love the variety of foods offered. The food was plentiful and delicious. The staff is gracious and attentive to customers. The location is convenient in relation to access to the freeway (my children travel from Cleveland to meet for brunch/dinner). The price point is very reasonable. It’s an overall good deal,

    Not a big fan of ragging on a small business, but with folks needing to stretch their dollars further than ever, I wanted to highlight my experience. Took a little while for food to come out for a 4:30 meal–the place wasn’t very busy. I enjoyed the Mother’s Day weekend with family, but after the first bite of my burger I noticed a very long hair in it. Showed it to the waiter and expected they would give some discount or even cover the part of my check (drink, appetizer and salad). However, the waiter only offered to, “have the kitchen make something else”. It took the better part of 45 minutes to get my burger, so I decided against it. I think the people are very nice and I enjoyed the atmosphere, but the food–the main reason for going–was ruined with a long piece of hair. I was actually stunned that there was no offer to try to make it right outside of waiting for a new entree that would’ve come out 20-30 minutes after the rest of my party had finished their meal. And I’m not generally the type of person that is going to waste my time arguing or goading an establishment to do the right thing. There are plenty of places to eat. Had it been handled it better I would have left a five-star review and made it a priority to visit again. But it wasn’t, so I am extremely unlikely to visit either this restaurant or their Dublin location in the future.

    We came during happy hour, and couldn't have been more pleased!!!! It is a very pleasant and comfortable venue - and on a more upscale feel (which was appealing to us). Drink and appetizer selections were wonderful!

    Food was good, but our waiter was horrible. He cared about the prom kids more than us, and I think we saw the manager more than him, and we didn't see her a lot either. Not happy for being my 1st time there.

    Very disappointed in our meal and experience. Server was polite but forgot items ordered, messed up credit card charges on 2 orders, did not serve us individually… had us pass down plates to each other. Food quality was poor. Tasted like it was from Costco. Unfortunately, we will not be returning to J Lui.

    The food was just bland. Pasta diablo had no spice, steak lacked salt or seasoning, the poke bowl had very little tuna, the fries were not fresh cut, we had to get the attention of a different server and then our original server was attentive. I wouldn't go back.

    I hate to post this review, but I have to. I used to love this place, but there’s a problem here. The food has suffered and the service is sub-par. We had a party of 11 and half of the group had issues with our orders. Numerous drinks had to be sent back and same for the food. My Tuna was so salty it was hard to eat and chicken for a couple others in the group was absolutely nasty. Something has happened here and it’s sad. This had been a great restaurant but no more. I won’t go back.

    Food generally was under seasoned and over-cooked. Prime rib was over-cooked (no medium rare). Cost was disproportionately high compared to quality of food.

    I don’t know if it was because of valentines day crowd or wrong selection of food. I order chicken fried rice and asked if it can be made Little spicy. So first blunder, the spice level was as if I am competing in USA Spiciest Food challenge. I could not handle it. The food was replaced but the next plate was does not tasted anything but soya sauce. For my wife’s plate the chicken pieces were huge and too much dry. Felt bad , After sending so much on the food and not enjoying a bit of it. Food Spoiled the evening . Won’t repeat for sure !!

    delicious food, i had there salmon salad and it was so good! I will have to say the hostess was very nosy and all up on us. She was also very rude to us and i get you might judge because it was 7 teenagers but that does not give u the right to be ignorant and flat out rude. We were also not doing anything wrong we took some photos for hoco and we were very respectful. I am super disappointed in peoples respect for teenagers now a days. She also didnt understand the idea of personal space. We felt very judged until our waiter came around, she was super nice and joked around with us and we appreciated it very much. Very very expensive i only ordered a salad, drink, and fries and the total was $35. Other than the hostess and the overpriced items it was a very pleasant experience.

    Service was a bit slow and the place was a bit loud. In fairness, they had a large table (20+ seats)full of younger adults out for a formal dinner. That seemed to take away from the rest of the patrons. I watched one table ask to be moved to a quieter table only to be denied that request. They later left after not having been served for 30 minutes. I think this was just an off-night for the restaurant. Most of my experiences there have been quite good.

    Went to J Liu in Worthington on a Saturday night. Were told they were completely booked and only were taking reservations. So we went outside and looked on the Open Table reservations app. Turns out they were still taking reservations for 7 (5 minutes from the time we went in). I promptly made a reservation and walked back in. The lady wasn’t pleased. She made us wait until exactly 7 to be seated. Rude hostess aside, the food was mediocre. I had the filet mingon and it really lacked flavor. Overpriced for the quality. Disappointing.
