“Great food but take your Winter coat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Second visit and can never fault the food, the extensive menu always delivers superb meals but... don't forget your jacket cause its the coldest restaurant in town! It's that cold that it's somewhat a turnoff if you forget your warm gear. Another tip, read the entire menu from front to back nothing seams to be in the right order and you could miss a great dish.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

We have been to FJ's a few times and the food is consistently good albeit a little pricey. The mushroom soup is excellent as is the various salmon dishes we had around the table - the ravioli, salmon in a bag, gnochi and salmon - very good. Wine is pricey - I suggest you take your own and just pay the corkage, which is reasonable. A pleasant night out.

“FJ dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013 via mobile

Have been to the restaurant many times since opening - great ambiance, good service and food however the prices are now way too high compared to a year ago.....drinks are weak and expensive - food is very good but again basic pastas are way beyond a reasonable cost - maybe time to look somewhere else ?

“excellent Menu and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2012

A great place to visit for lunch or dinner. Food quality is very good and the menu is diverse.
the Prawn canneloni is worth the visit on its own.
They have opened another outlet in Lippo Kemang Village and also the menu and food is very good. This outlet serves one of the best burgers in town .

Well worth a visit

“Great place to enjoy with family and friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

Had an impromptu family dinner at this restaurant and really appreciated the quality of food and service. Very relaxing, classy place and definitely the place to have yummy desserts such as the bailey cake, crumble with framboises and other berries, superbe creme brulee, great sorbets. The main course dishes were also delicious, I loved the beef stroganoff ordered, tried my sister's aglio lio spaghetti with shrimps - very innovative and delicious, pizza was also great and ravioli with baby lobster.... woooooowww that was really good. Oh yes, salads should not be missed.... fabulous! The prices are really good for the quality, ambience and service.

Definitely a place to take friends, family and celebrates special occasions. I heard the wine collection is also good. I heard also that the restaurants under the same flag in Kemang Village and Darmawangsa Square (both in south Jakarta) are also to be tried out.
