We have been attending the Chop Chop dinners in uptown SJ for some time, and this was by far our most disappointing dining experience during this bi-annual restaurant week. The claim chowder appetizer was lukewarm and bland. The halibut was dry, and the roast potatoes...More

Late dinner on a Saturday was sweet potato poutine (generous serving, very tasty) and jambalaya (nice flavour, proteins overcooked). Decent prices, speedy and friendly service. Extra credit for an extensive menu available at 10 p.m. Loved their whiskey beer; California Common not so much. (Heavy...More

We had dinner at your restaurant on Sunday, September 4. I had a glass of Jackson Triggs merlot but forgot to ask which merlot it was. Jackson triggs has a couple of different ones and I'd like to buy a bottle. Can you let me know the name of the one you serve? Thanks and I'm sure your beer is great! I just felt like a glass of wine that night. We'll be back! Linda, China, Maine
