Inspired by French cooking, the set meals here take place in a Victorian house & often last hours.- Google
"The main lobster with gnocchi and truffle and the beef were excellent."
"Overpriced. Didn't see a hint of the one Michelin star."

Excellent dining experience with interesting choices of selections on the tasting menu. The courses were really either hit or miss for us, mostly hitting the flavors well however. At times the courses were rather bland, or even felt like a certain flavor or mouth-feel was missing from a broth or dish. The desserts were easily the best part of the meal: thoughtful, whimsical, inventive, and very satisfying. Left feeling stuffed at over 12 courses, but the serving and wait staff were all exceedingly polite and truly deserve the Michelin star for the experience. The wine pairing was good as well, but ended up being far too much alcohol in the longer tasting menu.

Good but not amazing; there are better Michelin-starred options in the price range that have a better experience-to-dollar value. Of the seven-course seasonal menu, only one item really stood out. The atmosphere is nice, though we ended up seated next to a group where the person who'd clearly arranged the outing was there to boast and be seen more than anything.

Due to the mixed reviews, my husband and I were deathly afraid that we would not enjoy our meal at Chez TJ. Nonetheless, he wanted to give it a chance so we took advantage of the travelzoo coupon ($99 for the 8 course tasting (valued at $150) and came here on a Friday night for a 6:30 reservation. Walking up to the restaurant, Justin, the front of the house manager, opened the door for us and every single person greeted us politely. Service was consistently good throughout the night. We felt the flow and speed was on point and the transition from plate to plate was perfect. The only time we had to wait awhile was before the dessert courses began, and again for our bill. Rudy, our server, presented most of our dishes to us. James, the sommelier, poured every pairing for us. They were both very knowledgeable about the items that they presented to us. We did add the supplementation for the A-5 Wagyu and it was worth every single penny. The steak was cooked to perfection. We also got the supplementation of the wild boar with shaved truffles and again, it was great. In fact, we enjoyed every single course and its accompaniments -- again, shocking to the both of us because we just didn't know what the meal was going to be like given the mixed reviews. Lastly, we enjoyed the wine selections paired with each dish. At the end of the night, James also promptly emailed us the list of wines we paired with each dishes, including those that we purchased by the glass for the cheese course.

The restaurant is very classy and quiet. This is perfect for a calm night out with your wife. There is a lot of effort in the food preparation and presentation but it ends up being too much. There are too many different flavours in so tiny portions. Going back to simplicity and let the fresh products offer their own flavours would have make me wanting to come back.

First note that chez TJ goes from being great to not great at all while they rotate chefs. It's frustrating because I've had 2 great meals there as well as 2 very disappointing ones. Review for my last one: Likely food poisoning, very very slow service (4.5H for full tasting meal, 30mn per dish because the kitchen staff was totally inadequate to cope with a not even full dining room), and more importantly no answer from the staff or owner when I Emailed them with my concerns and offered info as to the possible food problem. This is very disappointing, it used to be much better in the past :( The staff and servers were nice when we were there, but that's unfortunately not enough.
