Diner Reviews
  • "The food was great with large portions, we loved the bread. We expected better service for a large party, but there was only one waitress and a lot of tables came in at the same time. Still, it took at least 10 minutes to get water and at least 15-20 to order food. It is not a good place for a work lunch because of timing."

  • "My brother in-law turned me on to this gem. Made reservations but was running late. Called the restaurant and the lady that answered said it's ok and drive safe. We got there 45 minutes late and they were busy with a large group! Service was a little disorganized for the large group ahead of us but we were in no hurry. The portions are large and the food is good. I had the Jaeger Schnitzel next time I'll order the small portion. We all took food home. The restaurant is fairly small but it has a homey feeling and the service must be the owners as they pay close attention to the food and make sure you don't leave hungry. Which is impossible at this place from what we got."

  • "My wife and I had a reservation for Valentine's dinner. When we arrived, the restaurant was full and we and another couple were totally ignored by staff for 15 minutes. When we walked to the back and inquired about our reservation, the surly pair working the front of house and bar (owner and spouse?) told us "the other customers are taking too long, what can we do?" and then kicked us out when I asked if that excused ignoring customers completely. They seemed overwhelmed and willing to blame the customers for all their problems."

  • "We were looking for a place to have some good schnitzel and found this place on yelp. We made reservations for valentines day and when we arrived we told the hostess we had reservations and she informed us that we would have to share a table with two other people because they only had tables for 4, despite having reservations. Not very romantic for Valentines day and that almost ruined the night. Since we didn't want to wait we agreed and lucky for us since we were first at the table no one else wanted to share (I heard the same offer made to others). Service was slow, I only saw one lady and one man working the entire place but they were kind. I would hope they would staff a little better when they know how busy they would be."

  • "Valentine's Day i snot probably the best night to do a complete review...HOWVER, as a frequent visitor, this place rocks. The staff work their butts off, the food, once ordered comes out fast, hot and wonderful. THE BREAD ROCKS!"

  • "We enjoy German food. The food at DJ,s is excellent and the portions are large. It is a small and cozy restaurant.. We normally go with another couple and it is easy to converse and they are not trying to push you out the door when you are done eating. We normally go early to avoid the crowds and have never been disappointed."

  • "Introduced a friend who works nearby to DJ's and she was thrilled. We are Speisekammer fans and so were happy to find that we could get good red cabbage and a fine Jaegerschnitzel here in CCCty during lunchtimes. This is an old-style place, with low-key atmosphere and butter wrapped in foil, so don't expect a rockin' biergarten. Set in a mini-mall within commercial building area across from Fry's/99 Ranch, it's a place to stuff yourself with a giant schnitzel or a hearty goulash for your one-hour lunch. They have a good crowd of older regulars, so if you're bringing more than four of your co-workers, reserve one of the few larger tables!"

  • "We are fans of Speisekammer/Oakland, but the one thing they fail on is schnitzel (actually Austrian). The best schnitzel is Cafe Europe/Santa Rosa, but DJ's does a very good job, with humongous portions. Get the 1/2 portion and the greaseless breaded cutlet covers most of the oval plate. Get the full portion and you get two of these monsters! A little bit of brown mushroom gravy, red cabbage in apple cider vinegar, and mashed potatoes make a massive serving. Goulash is a little harsh with paprika but also a nice-sized serving, spouse loved the pan-fried spaetzle with bits of chopped ham. A fun, old-fashioned, low-key foray into an almost-forgotten European cuisine that was once commonplace in US cities."

  • "First time at DJ's Bistro. We had made reservations and were seated as soon as we entered the restaurant. The waitress was very nice and made sure we were happy with the table. The restaurant has a European feel to it and was very cozy. We ordered our food and were shocked when it arrived. The portions were gigantic! To say you get your money's worth is an understatement. My wife and daughter had the BOHEMIAN SAUERBRATEN which was delicious. I ordered the JAEGÉR SCHNITZEL and my other daughter had the BAVARIAN CHICKEN. Each meal was exceptional and we were quite pleased. I would strongly recommend DJ's Bistro to anyone looking for some hearty, delicious, inexpensive German cuisine. We greatly enjoyed our experience DJ's Bistro."

  • "I've been coming to DJ's now for a couple of years, and I've got to say it's one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area. Being from Napa, I frequent so many fabulous restaurants, but I always look forward to dining at DJ's. If you're looking for a real meal - not silly or trendy - then this is the place. Their house salad with dill dressing is wonderful, but if cabbage soup is the soup of the day, I'll go for that. I've eaten almost everything on the menu, and I don't think I have a favorite. The weiner schnitzel, jager schnitzel, sauerbraten, goulash and port roast all all exceptional. Love the red cabbage. And the spaetzle is fried with bacon, which is fabulous."

  • "I made reservations well in advance for my husband's birthday. There were 7 of us that would be dining that night. When we got there, they didn't have a table ready for us. To make matters a little worse, they had to ask people at another table to move to a second table so they could accommodate us. I was a little embarrassed by that as I would never want to disrupt other people when dining. While we were eating we saw that it happened again...people were asked to move to another table to accommodate people walking in the door. Overall, the food was good but not fantastic. The noise level was on the higher side. I'm glad we came to check it out. Not sure if or when we'll be back but I would encourage others to check it out."

  • "This is the place to go if you are looking for authentic European cuisine in central Contra Costa. My jager schnitzel was very tasty. My wife loves duck, and was extremely happy with the duck she was served here. The portions were huge so be ready to carry some home. Even thought the one waitress working on this Wednesday night was very busy, she provided outstanding service and still had time to make us feel welcome. We are looking forward to our next visit!"
