    I had a burata salad special that was delicious and my husband had the Joey sandwich I highly recommend them both. My only compliant is the screen like mesh they line the tables with. I was wearing a thin sweater that was pulled several times in the table - it was very annoying. The desserts were also delicious chocolate cake and coconut bomb.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Very unassuming restaurant with some of the best food I have had in months. The Foie Gras was cooked to perfection and presented with perfect accompaniments, and the steak was cooked to perfection (when I ask for rare that is what I want), and again served with a interesting salads accompaniment. The cheesecake that followed was heavenly, and the double espressos were genuine double espressos, rather than the single espresso with an extra shot of water that is too often served. The only downside was that we had not realised that the restaurant did not hold a liquor licence!!!

    The staff at D'jeet? Is exceptional--friendly and genuine. The menu was different than what was on the Open Table site and what I planned to have was not on the restaurant menu. The meal I had (salmon) was fine and I will visit again to sample more of their menu.

    There is an overall friendly atmosphere. The food is delishous with pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, salmon, ribs, wonderful, unusual salads and tempting desserts. They have nice wines or French press coffee. The servers are attentive and helpful. The Saturday evening live music there is delightful.

    Efficient, friendly service. Food was very good. Only complaint was that the entrees were a bit pricey for the portion sizes. My husband ordered one of the specials, a $35 or so seared scallop entree'. It only contained three SMALL, albeit delicious, scallops! Otherwise, we were pleased. Enjoyable guitarist/singer performed.

    Our 4th visit to D'JEET was another pleasant dining experience!! Farm fresh, high quality ingredients combined with an innovative chef's creations makes this a restaurant a definite must. Our server, Rachel, obviously very knowledgeable about all menu choices and preparation, made great suggestions. Fantastic desserts prepared by the onsite pastry chef. You won't be disappointed. There are new additions to the menu!!! Enjoy local musicians on Saturday night. We were lucky to catch Quincy Mumford and love when the Ragtime Relics play.

    Celebrated my parents' anniversary and we couldn't have found a better place for it. Although there were other tables seating around us it felt as if we were the only customers in the restaurant. Service was great and food was excellent. The salmon, gnocchi, and short ribs are excellent choices. All desserts were amazing!

    We met some friends at D'Jeet last Saturday night, we'd never been and really didn't know what to expect. It was outstanding! The pasta with the lamb ragu was so good, I could've eaten two servings! The house salad was delicious, and so were the angus burgers. One of my friends had a chicken sandwich, also delicious! The ONLY downside is that it's so noisy, we couldn't hear our friends talk. They have live music too, which adds to the noise factor. If they had some way to absorb some of the noise, it would be PERFECT! We'll definitely be back!!!

    .D'jeet is a must for its quality of food and the inventiveness of the chef. If any of you had been to "Sisters" in Spring Lake, you know what makes a restaurant great. D'jeet is right up there in its cuisine. The menu offers many choices and it is fair to say that everything we have tried is consistently excellent. For those of you who like jazz, Djeet has a great duo laying once a month. Wonderful music and terrific food without a cover charge. Best deal in NJ.

    The reason we went to Djeet was to hear some terrific music played by an energetic duo. It really sounded like a trio. Great musicians and great food. The menu offers a wide variety of choices but withh a talent for mediteranean food. Each item ordered was very tasty. Pizza with figs was wonderfu;l So was the butternut squash and apple soup, Djeet is very attuned to the requests from customers; it offers a sald instead of french fries as an accompanient to a very tasty salmon burger. The staff is especially friendly. you do not fel rushed and this allows you to enjoy the music over a leisurely cup of coffee. Definitely woth a visit.

    D'jeet offers great ambiance with a tasty bite to go along. My friend recommended our monthly dinner date be here after our consistent sushi location. I am counting calories and I wanted something healthy. The menu was full of healthy choices! We got the cattalini bean hummus with an assortment of fresh vegetables and warm flat bread. Loved that I could substitute vegetables for the pita bread. Next I chose a sandwich on warm homemade baggette rich in whole grains with mozzarella roasted red peppers drizzled w EVOO. I ordered this without the meat again, to cut the calories. It tasted so fresh!! I felt like I was eating at somebody's house with homemade fresh ingredients

    Our meals were tasty and interesting. For a small, casual restaurant in a shopping center, d'Jeet's food exceeds expectations. So do the prices of the entrees and specials. For lunch or dinner, menu is the same - around 5 each of appetizers, salads, individual pizzas, sandwiches and entrees plus a couple of specials. They have entertainment on Sat. evenings. The singer was good when we were there, but too loud for dinner conversation.

    First, we were seated directly in front of a singer and musician; too loud. After asking, we were moved two tables further away, but it was still too loud for a small place. It was also far too warm inside. Our perky blonde waitress (she never gave her name) was only that. The bread arrived a minute before the appetizers, after we asked, and when dinner arrived, three of us didn't have utensils, so we had to get her attention. My appetizer (mussels) and dinner (swordfish special) were quite good, though one of our friends didn't like the infused rice cake that came with the fish; and my wife thought her salmon dinner (on the menu) was dry and flavorless. For $130 including tip per couple and BYOB, it was not worth the money.

    Located in The Grove, an upscale open-air mall in Shrewsbury, NJ, d'jeet is a welcome option in the area's restaurant options. Offering an eclectic menu in a casual setting, "d'jeet" is comfortable and no stress. The menu is brief, with only four full-sized entrees, but there were a couple of specials. Not gourmet cooking, but serviceable and interesting. There are smaller plate options and pizza as well. There was live music the night we went, which we could have done without.
