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."

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.

Since the new chef has taken over it's really declined. The new Sommelier also leaves something to be desired and wait service has also fallen off, I had to pour my own wine more than once which does not meet my expectations for either a Michelin star restaurant nor $150 a plate dining experience. Food was very good, but not outstanding given these occurrences I will not be returning as there are plenty of other fine dining establishments in the area and all provide better service. Chez Tj does not deserve it's Michelin star, not even close.

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.

Overpriced, under portioned and some of the snottiest service I have ever experienced. The prices in Paris itself were lower, the portions larger, and the wait staff were pleasant at the very least. A hint to the staff; stop acting like you came from Central Casting on a call for "snotty rude French people". For the chef, making cute little swirls in sauce over the food, to disguise both taste and size isn't a skill, it's a marketing ploy. Never going back, sure as hell not recommending it to others. Go to Emile's in San Jose on Second Street. Or Denny's. The first has superb food at reasonable prices, polite staff, and you can go next door to City Lights and see a play after dinner. Denny's has better ambiance than Chez TJ, and the food is no worse.
