Reviews for J Restaurant & Lounge


Nice downtown restaurant – The first time i walked in here i thought "chicago." It didn't look like an LA restaurant to me. I like the space, even though it is quite large. The downstairs is nice for casual dinner. The food is good, not spectacular but good. Frederic, the manager/sommelier is a treat. I wish the wine list were more reflective of his scope and talent, but they are growing it. The patio is really pretty too, very nicely layed out with good views of parts of the skyline. I like the upstairs cigar patio as well, but I'm not as wild about the dance area. It's a little cheesy, and can attract big USC frat crowds.

Awesome atmosphere! – I was very impressive with the location, it was not hard to find and the place is huge! I went to a gathering in the patio, it was on the coldest night possible but the staffs did a terrific job with the heat lamps. The bartenders were friendly and the price was not at all bad.

Google Search Provided This Gem of a Restaurant – Entering this restaurant you definitely feel welcome with the staff and to my surprise the place is enormous. Downstairs is a large dining area with lounge to the right and an enormous 10000 sq foot out door patio to the back that get very busy.

My date and I ordered the prawn and salmon dishes and both were amazing. The staff was very attentive and made you feel welcome especially when the owner Sergio and executive chef , Ong (hope my memory serves me right on his name) came out to see how our food was and recommend his coffee desert which was just the right finish to our meal. On our way out we passed through the upstairs nightclub that was packed and if you're going for dinner as long as you order an entree they waive the cover charge to the club.

I can't wait to go back and try more of their menu or their Sunday brunch on the patio.

Thank you for the kind words, Rick! Please be sure to introduce yourself to myself or one of our managers, Daniela. We look forward to having you again. Please let me know if there is anything I can arrange for you.

wonderful wedding venue – My daughter's wedding was recently celebrated at J's, and we had a wonderful experience. The staff was exceptionally hospitable, and went out of their way to ensure all the guests had a wonderful time. The chef even went out of his way to fix a bruised cake using coffee grinds! Very creative!

J Lounge IS ONLY FOR ASIANS - Will DISCRIMINATE – My friend was having her birthday in J lounge this past weekend. She had put on the guest list. When we arrived we waited in line outside of the lounge. We kind of noticed how everyone in line was either Asian or with an Asian. At the time my boyfriend and I didn’t think much of it, besides we were there to celebrate my friends 27th birthday and to have a good time. When we got to the bouncer he refused to let my boyfriend in, who by the way is Mexican, because of his shoes.

Please note that he was wearing Dr. Martin’s. That’s total BULLSHIT! I saw a guy walk in there with converse. DON’T GO THIS PICE OF S**T PLACE. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME BECAUSE IT’S NOT WORTH IT.

I even went online before going to this place to read for a dress code. There is no dress code on their website! WILL NEVER GO THERE EVER AGAIN!!! If you don’t look Asian or are with an Asian beware!

I text my friend that night that they wouldn’t let us in and she will never have her birthday there ever again.

One more thing to love about downtown – As an adventurous USC student, I started venturing into downtown back in the day when nobody thought it was safe or cool. It has been getting even cooler by the nanosecond for the last decade. J Lounge is just one more thing to love about LA!
