JJ’s is a MUST for restaurant week! I had the swordfish for lunch and it was WONDERFUL! Service was also phenomenal, as expected 🙂

We had an incredible dining experience here. Our server was knowledgeable, witty, intelligent, and paired our food with the perfect wine.
Travis, Oct. 2015
Our server was a real pro in terms of her knowledge of menu and wine list…We tried all the classics, Paco shrimp, KC Strip, JJ’s Pride, Osso Bucco, etc. Everything was very good and all visitors were duly impressed. You have several new fans.
