Wonderful opportunity to see students gain valuable experience in the hospitality industry. Our meal was very good. We were very impressed with the presentation. The service was professional and friendly. The value can’t be beat.

I really enjoyed the food and you could tell it was made by skilled chefs with beautiful presentation. The service was very quick and assisted to all my needs such as splitting up the bills in a certain way. I liked the ambiance of the restaurant too with the flower centerpieces and colouring on the table to keep the environment casual. The only criticism I would say is that almost every food has cilantro in it which is a controversial topping for many people. Personally, I am not a fan and it was in the fish tacos, mussels, on the fries, as well as in a veggie taco bowl I had last week too. Other than my subjective criticism, all the people involved with the restaurant did awesome and I would definitely come back

I attended the "california dreaming" lunch this week and loved the experience. The tables looked great and fit the theme, the soup and sweet potatoe fries were particularly good and all the food was wonderful and came quickly. we had a nice location beside a large bright window. Well done.

Delightful staff, pleasant venue, good food, good prices. BUT . . . lukewarm coffee and tea, which arrived first and were long gone by the time the food arrived . . . no additional beverage offered. Mussels were divine but needed a slice of crusty bread to mop up the delicious sauce . . . None of that will stop us from returning whenever we can.

The restaurant was amazing! The service was friendly. It was my first time at PJ's and I would definitely come here again with my coworkers. The special menu for Valentines day was delicious! I HAD to order 2 entrees -- the chicken parmesan and the stuffed peppers -- as it was too hard to choose between.

We've been to PJs often, but this time was probably the least professional in terms of service. There was a typo in the special items menu on the table. The item I ordered initially wasn't available, but we thought the server should have known earlier (when we ordered or shortly after we ordered) that there was no more of that item available. The server didn't get our drink or dessert order correct. The food itself, however, was very tasty and overall good value and there was willingness to accommodate our dietary restrictions. My friend and I thought that perhaps the student staff could observe other restaurants to get a sense of what would come across as "good" professional service.

I really enjoyed the featured items and the theme of an autumn brunch. The food came out fast and was very taste. Everyone got what they wanted and enjoyed it. The front of house manage was extremely nice and was always making sure you had everything you needed. The kitchen staff was always smiling and the expo looked like she was keeping everything in order. Having the table cloth be paper and having crayons be provided made it lots of fun and exciting! I would definitely go back again for any occasion.

Came to support a friend's restaurant day. Sadly, I'm a vegan, and the main entree, a pasta dish, didn't have a great vegan alternative (e.g. didn't have vegan meatballs as a substitute, so it was just noodles in a nice sauce). It would be nice if the menu could be more inclusive.

I thought that that PJ’s was a quaint restauranr tucked away on campus at U of G. We were seated right away as we approached the entrance of the restaurant and our order was taken promptly. Our food was delivered quickly to our table. The chicken pot pie with the flaky top was very tasty. The presentation of the brownie and ice cream was exquisite and it was reflected well from the picture on the centre piece. It was gooey and melted in your mouth with each bite you took. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and we all enjoyed the service from
the students. We would definitely come back for another meal!

The ambiance is quite well and the surroundings are nice. However, the service is not very organized. There are enough servers that day but they were not signed to each table. It took me a while to get an empty plate and I was asked for getting a bill twice.

Great food and service. One thing to note, we attended the last sitting, and they were running low some food options, therefore would be best to attend at an earlier sitting to have the best choice.

PJ's is a very great place for lunch. The environment was relaxing and nice. My friend and I really enjoyed our time there. We will definitely be coming back. The only issue I had was with the lack of vegetarian options. The Thai Curry was alright, but more vegetarian options would be great.

We went for one of the themes lunches - Cupid's Corner. My partner and I both got the spaghetti and meatballs and the lemonade spritzer. The spaghetti and garlic bread were great, but the meatballs weren't my favourite recipe - they seemed a little hard and bland. However, the wait staff was great, the atmosphere was fantastic, service was fast and it was very affordable. Definitely recommend and will return!

We had a 1pm reservation and were not seated until closer to 1:30. One person in my party ended up only having a beer since 3 of the items he wanted were no longer available. The other person in my party did not eat her food as she felt it was not good. She barely touched it and I was surprised they did not offer to take it off out bill.

My dish, however, was delicious.
