    It was a little expensive-especially some of the wine. We enjoyed it.

I love their beer selection here and in the pst have tried several including the original Budvar Budweiser beer from The Czech Republic. If you like beer, their beer selection and book is extensive!

    One of the things I don’t like about MJ is that their portions are huge AND they charge an $8 sharing charge. As I’ve said, my wife and I are NOT big eaters and we almost always share an entree as we did the steak at Chophouse. I understand that restaurants rely on a certain amount of spend per guest but charging the sharing charge when other appetizers (in addition to main courses)are being ordered just is not a fair policy.

    The food was all very good with various people in our group ordering rack of lamb(shared), almond crusted grouper (1 shared, 1 alone), surf and turf and the Mario Andretti (veal Milanese). I just had the Hungarian goulash soup. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was better this time than previous visit 2 years ago. We didn’t order dessert as we were on borrowed time with the kids. Not one of our favorite restaurants and probably won’t go back too soon.
    We enjoyed Mme J's again this year..... but for some reason, it just lacked the usual 'wow factor'..... will we go again....? Probably!
