    Red face Maddam Jeanettes! YUMMMY

    It was all we were told it would be... couldnt beleive how hidden it was from the streets... but besides that it was gorgeous. Beautiful 1/2 inside, 1/2 outside seatting. Live entertainment at 7PM, Brit had the rack of lamb (I tried it, it was absolutly delicious!). I had the Prime Rib, it was very tender and full of flavor. Both dishes were appealing to the eye with eadible decoration... they put these fried carmelized carrot strips on the plate, they were actually very tasty! The bread they bring out before dinner was pretty good too. We didnt have any wine/mixed drinks... dinner came out to be just at 100 dollars. There is no service charge there, which was nice (most places have a 15% charge) I highly reccomend it (like most people) We had no complaints!

    Is inside air conditioned? In September with no wind, this has always been dh's biggest complaint about going there.

    There is no air conditioning at MJ's, because even the part of the restaurant that is under a roof is open to the outside. There are only a few overhead fans, but they do not provide too mush air flow. Sitting outside under the stars is usually best.

    Unfortunately this is why, after two visits, I am unable to get dh to return.

    We were there last week. The breeze kept it cool. Food was excellent (loved the lobster ravioli). My husband had shrimp and I had pasta and chicken (needed a night off from beef ) for entrees.

    When I made the reservation, I had mentioned that it was our 10th anniversary and they brought us Kir Royales when we were seated. What a nice surprise.

    Glad you enjoyed Madame Jeanette's. We go there every year the first week in August. I was only warm once when there was no breeze. All other times we were fine.
