best way to end a sunday afternoon. – i have been trying to come here every sunday since i met the stellar bartender named J.T. Aside from making the meanest makers mark manhattan,with the perfect amount of bitters and crystalized ice floating on top, he is actually a real down to earth guy that you can talk to,...very rare in this town of bartenders with bad attitudes. when i am feeling down, this is where i come to have a drink ,great conversation ,some calamari and leave feeling much better Tina

Weeknight... – Granted it's not the ideal time to have dinner on a Wed., so my experience may be different. The restaurant was virtually empty and the bar was entirely empty. We sat down for dinner, but service was relatively slow considering there were probably as many waitstaff as there were customers. The food was ok, neither great nor horrible. I'll go back just to see if there's any difference in atmosphere when the place isn't dead.

must have martinis! – i love this place. it's my usual friday after work happy hour location. the waitress knows my drink and the bartender knows how to make it. the decor is plush and sleek and comfy. it's not that crowded, though it should be. the limited bar menu is good. love the crab cakes and the garlic fries. a little later in the evening a great jazz combo plays. this place deserves more attention.

Hard to find, easy to stay! – I've been going to LJ's for a while, as it is near where I work. On the 2nd floor of the Sony Metreon, it's a little off the beaten path, but I am one of those people who considers this a good thing. They have a great happy hour, half-price martini drinks, and the food is excellent. It's a great spot to meet up with friends after work, or to hang out before or after a movie. They also have live jazz!

What a find! – It's up on the second floor, and a little hard to find, but once you do, wow! The menu has been expanded, and the drinks are generous and reasonably priced. The staff is exceptionally friendly and responsive. The food is also incredible. Great music towards the end of the week.

A drink-and-dine escape from the Metreon's hustle-and-bustle hubbub. – The Scene
This loungey restaurant is located amid video-game central on the second floor of Sony's ultra-mall. Near the entrance, semicircular banquettes accommodate large parties, while multicolored booths line the central island. There is virtually no art on the modern wood walls, which may make the room feel slightly unfinished--or, it may draw attention to the lengthy bar's TVs, which silently flash LJ's ads. In back, plush crimson couches offer an ideal spot to relax and absorb the live jazz (Wednesday-Friday evenings).

The Draw
LJ's attracts a mixed 30-something crowd: after-work, touristy, and pre- or post-movies. A half-dozen martini selections highlight the drink menu, as well as a recommended, not-on-the-menu Cosm 'O' Licious: an orange-flavored rum twist on a traditional cosmopolitan. The waitstaff is attentive and professional, whether refilling water glasses or serving light-and-flaky pizzas cooked with homemade dough.

Best Martini – I would like to let everyone in on what a great apple martini I had at LJ's. A must try.
