We only dine at Chez TJ on special occasions but have never been disappointed.
The setting is romantic, the staff attentive and the food is good.
It is pricey but get dressed up and enjoy an night of good food and wine!

I've had ubber tasting menus with super-ubber prices, and yes this is expensive, but I think it was not outrageous. Quality was okay, but it cannot compete with the Napa equivalents.\r

One negative I did not miss, when someone brings

Pros: Erm, erm, its the nearest michelin starred restaurant to our house?

Cons: Doesn't deserve the star, overpriced, impersonal.

Be sure to bring your own magnifying glass! The portions were too small to choke a toddler, but the bill was astronomical ($320 for the two of us). When we arrived home, my husband reached for the pizza and I grabbed a bowl of cereal.

Pros: Nice ambience What food there was tasted good

Cons: Big price for tiny amount of food

Have been to Chez TJ four times in the past 3 1/2 years for b'day and other celebrations. The first visit was smooth as silk, but subsequent meals have been less than stellar. On our last visit (Dec, 2007) the meal was mediocre at best.

Pros: Food, Wines

Cons: Price, Service, Ambience

If all you care about is the 2 Michelin stars, then try it. But if you want a wonderful dining experience, and especially the kind of service that one might hope for at this price, go elsewhere. We have lived in the Bay Area for 5+years

Pros: Fantastic food, wonderful ambience

This is the one place my husband and I go for a really romantic dinner. The food is always outstanding, but can be a bit adventurous for some. Portions can appear small, but always seem to be just the right amount. Be assured you will never leave Chez TJ hungry. This is one of a handful of places I have ever been in which conversation will cease as people savor every bite. The ambience is elegant and relaxing...perfect for lingering over a quiet meal. The waitstaff are attentive without hovering, and very knowledgeable. Even though we only go there 3 or 4 times a year, we are always greeted by name. A nice touch!

When I'm in town on business this is my "close the deal' venue. I count on the professional service, excellent cuisine and a private rooms to finish my discussions with VIP clients.

This was so obnoxious.

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful until dessert. The couple sitting next to us received mulitply dessert dishes "compliments of the chef", which is not a big deal, except we

Pros: romantic, delicous

If you are looking for a dining experience, Chez TJ is for you. However, note that these 5 course meals are very small (its literally a taste of food as each of the courses). Its a great place for a special date or anniversary. This is not your normal "french" food.

PROS: cute victorian house and location
CONS: expensive for what you get

Artfully presented prix fixe dinners. Modern cuisine with masterful flavor combinations that appeal to the senses with a quiet confidence. Professional service. Very nice surroundings.

We had such a grand time at dinner last night. We were totally spoiled from the moment we walked through the
door. We were seated at the table in the front of the bay window. On such
a perfect, mild evening with the moon glowing

Pros: the food!, the atmosphere, the experience

The dishes were unique, innovative, beautiful and most of all delicious. Service was warm and attentive, not in the least bit pretentious. The restaurant used to be a small house so it's very cozy. Prix fixe menus go for $45, $55 or $65

The staff and food make Chez TJ a must visit restaurant. This is the one and only place I consider when I want to celebrate in style any special occasion!

I enjoy the fact that menu changes frequently and have been introduced to so many

Inside the Mountain View Victorian building built in 1894, roomy tables adorned with hand-blown glass fill the formal room. The days of boring butter sauces and tried-but-tired French standbys are over. The kitchen offers three tasting…
