J. Liu Restaurant & Bar of Worthington Ratings and Reviews
I have always loved your location. I love your soups and salad. The Sunday brunch did not allow me to order what I enjoy. The food on the brunch buffet was not the quality I have come to enjoy at your restaurant. I made arrangements to gather with my friends, and am quit embarrassed.
We made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner not knowing that they were only serving a buffet. The website did not mention a buffet and we thought we would be ordering off the regular menu.
Our party of 4 was seated upstairs at a round table for 12. The rest of the groups upstairs were large. The atmosphere felt institutional as did the buffet. This ranks as the worst Thanksgiving dinner ever. We usually eat out that day at restaurants, but at places that take the trouble to serve a real meal. We may as well have gone to a Golden Corral and saved ourselves some money.
It was 4pm and too late to try and go somewhere else.
We were there for a Thanksgiving family dinner, specifically at J. Lui because they have such a variety of choices. The family has different food needs (or preferences) and options available made everyone happy. No fuss or stress in our home kitchen! Besides, the food was great.
We had Thanksgiving buffet there for the last two years. The only thing was in my attempts to keep Mom from fighting for the bill I didn't notice that we were only charged for one of us as a senior when 3 of us qualified for that price. My fault... I just looked at the total and shoved the cash on the folder while the waitress was still there. We will still go there for more special occasions.
Had Thanksgiving meal at J Lui. Special non-menu buffet was set-up with traditional Thanksgiving fare plus a nice variety of Asian selections. Also had carved meat service and desert table. All-in-all a great meal and exception value. Will continue to visit throughout the year, menu items are a nice variety and service is good. What’s not to like!!
Excellent, as usual. While the bar area is loud and fun, the restaurant area is quiet and cozy. Great attention from staff. Tables were filled with quiet, upscale diners, providing a perfect ambiance for a Sunday night dinner out (the bar area was still hopping). Food was great -- combo fried rice (enough for two or three more meals) and Jason's Spicy Chicken (again, enough for take-home). We will definitely go back and take guests -- we love this place!
Planned on having an early lunch with our son before heading back to Northern Ohio, but we couldn't order anything off the menu because it was Sunday and all they served was the "brunch". The food was adequate, nothing to write home about. Not sure I would go here again for the brunch. Would prefer to have ordered off the menu. Our server was very prompt and filled our drink orders quickly. She also cleared the table of any and all dishes.
I wanted to show my appreciation to my dog-sitting neighbors for all the help they have given me. I suggested dinner out someplace, and thought of J. Liu's. I had been there before, but they had not been. As I expected, we had a great dining experience. We had good food and a wonderful waitress. We were not rushed in any way and were treated very well. My friends remarked on the ambiance and decor. We had a wonderful time, and my friends thanked me for picking such a nice place.
Good and service was great. However, the restaurant was empty and the hostess squeezed our group of 5 people at a 4 top by sticking a chair at the end. It was very tight. I even asked the hostess to push two tables together to make us more comfortable and her reply was "No. we have tables of four and six. You have 5 so we will sit this way." I'll add when we left the restaurant was still empty, I saw maybe 4 tables with people and none were even close to us.
I've been to J Liu several times and was very happy, but this was not a good experience at all. The drinks tasted like pure vodka and the service was very slow. The restaurant wasn't packed for a Saturday night, so I don't know what was going on but I was very unsatisfied. My parents were in town, so I took them and it was very disappointing.
This place has average food, and ous not kept clean. You can look up and see years of dust on the open ceiling heat work, you will also find dust on the detail ledge in the booth. We went to the Sunday buffet, food was ok - carving station roast exremely tough, most was warm at best. Also, check the plate you pick - something black on them that can easily be scrapped of with a fingernail, found it on buffet and desert plates.
We went for Easter brunch and my father's 70th birthday. This is one of our favorite restaurants and I'm sad to hear that they are no longer going to be on OpenTable! Seems like all of our favorite restaurants are leaving OT.
The restaurant was very hot today. They need to cool it down before they open so that people are comfortable. Making excuses that the heat from the buffet is the problem is a little off-putting (someone just didn't turn the air down to 60° so that it stayed cool in there all afternoon). It's spring! It's getting warm!
Other than that the food was really good and we always have a good server.
Our go to place for Sunday brunch. Always a great selection of varied options for breakfast, lunch, dessert. Trays are always full and hot, love the mix of Italian, Oriental, and American dishes, several salads to choose from, and a delicious dessert table. We sit around and visit and never feel rushed. Our coffee cups and water glasses are kept full and our servers are always attentive without hovering. Our reservation is always honored on time. The dining room is nicely decorated and while there is usually a crowd we never feel crowded. Good parking.
Requested a booth on Open Table, got seated in the bar next to the wine. Interrupted 3x by servers looking for wine behind our seats. Ordered risotto with scallops. Risotto great, scallops not hot and very boring. Wife's spicy chicken very good. Bartender/server excellent. Previous visit in December the salad came after the entrees arrived. Two unimpressive visits.
