    was there anything wrong with your meal that could have been rectified by sending it bacK?

    you must have been so very disappointed as MJ is one of those places many of us say "do not miss out!"

    please give your restaurant reviews in another thread in the culinary section.

    again, i am surprised and disappointed MJs did not WOW you.

    the only complaint i have ever had re: MJ is the heat/humidity if there is no breeze. if there is no breeze, it is pretty uncomfortable.

We were very excited about the menu and options, so, we ordered a large amount of food. Unfortunately it was not flavorful and average. The restaurant did not work out for us, but many others did. The only way to know is to dine, experience and judge for yourself.

    Quote from Sunworshipper's earlier post.."Chef Kasi, we know how wonderful the restaurant is from experience I don't believe what some people may write, and hopefully neither will other people when 10 reviews rave and 1 slams...have no fear...WE LOVE MJ"S"

    SWII....I think you can hardly call the opinions of some of us regarding our dining experiences at MJ's as "slams". The posts were honest and well written. These review are not for you "to believe". We share our experiences on the forum. We're not making up fairy tales.

Just my own personal preferences. I read reviews on everything (from restaurants in Aruba to when I'm shopping for a new TV or new running shoes) - just need to take all reviews with a grain of salt - they're helpful to a certain extent but you still need to use your own best judgment.

    Sometimes we need to agree to disagree. Not everyone has the same tastes. That applies to restaurants, airlines, excursions, and even resorts.

    Even my 98 yo grandmother would tell you that when it comes to reviews, throw out the most glowing and the most stinging and the truth probably lays somewhere in between.

    This board is so valuable because everyone is able to post honest oppinions, good and bad. I found that I try to follow certain members more than others but always read everyone. I have a book Im keeping for my trip and am jotting down positive and negative comments for each event I have planned so that Im aware of what may be the downfalls in hopes of avoiding them.

    A wise lady, your grandmother! Sort of like Olympic scoring where they throw out the high and the low scores and average the rest.

    I sometimes hesitate to post a negative review as some take it personally and rip you. When I do post, I try to be objective and not exaggerate for effect.

    I totally agree that we want to share our opinions and do not have to agree with each other. As long as we are fair and do not have malicious intent or an ulterior motive, I think the feedback is great. It is amazing how passionate so many of us are about our favorite places...and Chef Kasi should be pleased to know that MJ's is on so many of our minds.

    Thank you

    Rules
    "Everyone has an opinion based on a number of different factors, like their own personal experiences, values, etc. If someone disagrees with you, it is probably because they value one thing more than another. "

    Hopefully no one hesitates from posting because they feel intimidated.

    In 19 visits to the island, we have had a few horrific experiences involving:


    I have stated my opinion on those experiences and moved on.

    I'm sure many people are hesitant to post negative reviews....this thread is a perfect example.
    People try to pass along information for the board and are accused of having "ulterior motives".
