    Chez TJ has been through many different incarnations over the years. It's current incarnation is quite excellent. Creative, innovative, delicious food; excellent and attentive service; warm and inviting environment. This certainly is not an inexpensive night out. But, for a special occasion, it's lovely.

    Chez TJ is an experience, as always. The food was very good, though there were so many ingredients in a single plate that sometimes the tastes got a little muddled. The service was lovely, and the fact that the server sometimes couldn't remember all of the many ingredients in each plate was charming. A standout was Ted Merkel, sommelier. Ted was enthusiastic about the wines and other drinks in a way that brought joy to all of us at the table. Thanks for a great experience, Ted!

    We've been dining here since the late 90s and it is always a special experience. The chef delivered two of our courses himself which was really great. He is really going places, I think. Seems to have lots of ideas, makes good food, personable. It's been a few years since we've been to Chex TJ but we'll be back sooner now!

    My wife and I been coming here since 2008. If we want to host a special friend or family, this is our go to place. We’ve had spectacular menus and not so spectacular over these years. This year, it is spectacular! The food taste really good, presentation is beautiful,and service has shot up tremendously. They deserve another Michelin star!

    The artistic small bites are admirable, but one hardly gets a chance to find the taste. The servers descriptions are too fast to digest them, and interjected questions only recover a fraction of the descriptions. We have experienced a wine pairing in Turku, Finland which really created a wonderful symbiosis of wine and food. We did not experience that here, but it is probably a rare experience.

    What a treat. The food was magical and chef managed to accommodate one of our guests’ food restrictions without losing his magic. The sommelier’s pairings and knowledge are amazing. The staff is attentive without being overbearing. An awesome experience worthy of TJ’s star
