The restaurant was not very busy at the time we went for dinner so I expected to get great service. I wasn't disappointed. We received excellent service. The food was delivered hot, fresh and delicious. Our server was friendly, polite and professional.

J et J is a beautiful French Bistro. It is warm and welcoming not flashy just as it should be. The Bar is very nicely done and relaxed. The kitchen is front and center and invites inspection. I love the layout of this restaurant. The food was excellent and scrupulously detailed. The popovers that taste and flake like croissants are sick delicious. Loved the Epoisse cheese desert. It’s not for everyone but was nicely presented and densely flavored. Nothing but praise for the service too!

Why need I keep it short, simple and specific? 1) The ambience. The fountain on the Greens. No muzak. Respectful people, except for the dogs. Why are dogs permitted in this elegant venue. Tell your " guests" to leave them in their rooms! I miss the lady server. The fellow was good, just too few for even for the few guests on July 4th at lunch. I like being able to make a reservation on-line, although asking for a golf-course-side table is a bit difficult even though we always are seated there, under the umbrellas moved by the staff who are 100% kind. 2. Prices are exorbitant, but the ambience is worth the price for us locals. I was married here on July 5, 1992 and now that my wife dumped me from 2016 - ,2020 and appreciate being able to sit in the lodge even though I can never again afford to 2020, I enjoy being here with our two daughters. I've been dining here since 1986 and with my daughters since 2021. I hope youi will share this with your staff.
