Our evening here was just ok. The ambiance is more like a cafeteria than fine dining. The bar stocks so-so liquors. The wine list was small but reasonably priced. The food was passable but nothing special. My elderly grandparents would probably like this restaurant because it was quiet, over lit, and the flavors were pretty bland. We won’t be back.

The food was really good. The service was good enough. The environment is nice. We went for restaurant week. I probably would not pay their regular prices for the amount of food we got.

We hadn't been in a while, but enjoyed the experience. The crispy duck was the best duck I've had, and the poke was amazing.

Sat in the bar with my guests when we arrived. Rob the bartender was awesome. Made us feel very welcome. If I have any negative comments it would be that the bar was poorly stocked. No hendricks, no kettle one botanicals, no ginger beer. All popular spirits. We moved to the dining room. Our waitress was great. Very well versed on the menu. We had the soft shell crabs to start. So good we ordered more. Local oysters were delicious. For dinner we had lamb and halibut with crab. Fresh and plentiful. I look forward to going to this restaurant again. This is NYC quality

Todd Jurich's is the perfect continental restaurant. As a party of 4 we had foie gras, oysters, soft shelled crabs, Caesar salad, duck, lamb and the fresh catch of the day. There was nothing but excellence in both service and cuisine.

My husband loved his duck entree. I was disappointed by soft shell crab( sauteed) snd beet salad did not have many beets in it.
Pecan pie was more like chunks of pecan in corn syrup/brown sugar- not a pleasing texture and the crust on key lime pie was so hard,I could barely cut it with a knife-
Great service!! We probably wont’t return due to food

The roasted beet salad was very Disappointing. It was a plate of spinach with a few slices of beets. The mile high key lime pie turned out to be frozen cream, couldn't even get the fork in it with no key lime. Sent it back. The entree was excellent leg of lamb. Not sure I would go back.

First time there...a Monday evening and it was pretty quiet. Outstanding food....fish special of the day was brilliantly prepared and delicious. Service left a little to be desired, especially since there was all of about 8 people in the place but it wasn’t awful. Would highly recommend. Excellent location, neat ambiance. Will definitely be back.

Perfect for our anniversary dinner and the complimentary glasses of champagne were appreciated. The food as always was exquisite, unique, and beautifully plated. The service was perfect, just the right amount of attention without being obtrusive. The nice thing is, TJ's Bistro is always this way, so we can reliably have special guests from out of town get blown away, great drinks at the bar, or a romantic dinner without worry.

Our server was awesome . Restaurant was not super clean, windows really dirty. I ordered a house salad that tasted like straight vinegar was poured on it . We order Bison which was sub par. Also ordered a fish special and fish was dry and portion was small for price and sauce was cold. Wine was good and staff very friendly. Probably won’t go back .

Poor ambience. Kids playing video at the next table at a loud volume. Terrible service. Waited 40 minutes for an appetizer. $12 for a cup of soup. Ridiculous.

Asked server about wines to glass as they serve limited. Her initial response gave the impression there were more options than listed. When we discussed, she seemed short. The curry chicken appetizer was too curry heavy. Our steaks were mixed up when set, and food was not hot it was lukewarm.

We purposely placed our cards with the bills apart as not to mix them up. She mixed them up and made a comment that suggested we mixed them up.

Easter brunch was abysmal. Lamb was undercooked. food choices very limited and presentation at serving stations was poor. Carving station had difficulty finding sharp cutlery which is a bit of a joke for a fine dining restaurant. Sorry to report that food was mediocre at best. Can't provide praise for anything other than the service which was very professional and met every expectation.

Good wine selection, nice menu. The scallops were done perfectly. A bit pricey but generally worth it. Could use some refurbishing. The seat of the booth we sat in was split in several places, and you don't expect that with this price point.
