    Great service. Wonderful food - done to perfection. Our group of six had the rack of lamb or the steelhead trout. Both were cooked perfectly and were very flavourful. The shrimp/scallop appetizer was amazing. For dessert, we had the lemon tart, cheesecake and the ganache. All were enjoyed immensely. The food, service and ambience were so superb that we’ve planned to come back to try the other entrees.

    From the moment we stepped into JJ’s Fine Dining, the Culinary Arts Instructor, Mr. Denis Liew was most personable and attentive.(this was noted for each guest) Lunch started with Appetizers from the Chefs…an endive filled with delicate tastes. We started with Boston Clam Chowder to die for! I indulged in delicate spare ribs… The Main Entre was Pork Wellington made to perfection….with a variety of Veggies. We treated ourselves to Virgin Pina Colada’s… The Desserts consisted of Ganache, Lemon Tart and as it was my 76th Birthday 🎂, a Special Dessert was prepared with a Candle and a Sing-a-long! A truly Magical and Forever Cherished Birthday. Thank You to All the VCC Culinary Arts Students, Chefs, and Mr. Denis Liew, for his experience and expertise in foreseeing the whole successful outcome !

    I really appreciate the limited numbers of reservation so that the student chefs and servers are able to handle the customers with ease. The food was excellent in taste and presentation. One must remember that these are students learning and one must be prepared to spend a bit more time to be able to enjoy the full experience. Highly recommended.

    They served great dishes. I used this restaurant to celebrate my friend's couple wedding anniversary, and we had a beautiful dessert plate with a message. We all certified their services and food.
