almond cake at Chez TJ
If you know you're going to a Michelin rated restaurant you probably would arrive with high expectations -- fine silverware, china, exquisitely prepared food, and impeccable service. I, however, didn't know about this restaurant so it was a great surprise.   Chez TJ is just off Castro, the main shopping street in downtown Mountain View in a former Victorian house. 

We were welcomed to the table with a glass of champagne or prosecco.  There were two menu options, a four course prix fixe menu as well as a more elaborate tasting menu.  Both had optional wine pairings.  The food was delicious, carefully executed showing classic french techniques  and beautifully presented.  The pace -- perhaps a little too leisurely.  All in all a nice experience and a good option for a special event.  The restaurant is not accessible and will be difficult for people who are not able to manage stairs.  There is  parking available nearby.
