Diner Reviews
  • "Finally got to Just after reading so much about it! The location is fine, the gas station is actually a great land mark. Service was impeccable. General manager came around to every table, no request was too big or small. Gluten free menu options are great for someone with a dietary issue. The homemade pretzel rolls with honey mustard butter and hummus with crackers (given to every table) are a wonderful and delicious touch that puts Just over the edge in my book. Cocktails were delish especially the cucumber mojito! Had the snapper entree, yummy! Greens salad with candied walnuts, dried cherries and bleu cheese had perfect balance. Every dish that went by looked amazing. Food presentation was fantastic. Can't wait to come back!"

  • "We had the chef specials of shrimp and crab tater tot. Which were very light and comparable to a crabcake. We also had the beef and cinnamon apple kebabs. They too were delicious however every other beef kebab was a little too rare for my liking. The star was the Chilean Seabass as an entrée which was utterly delightful!"

  • "It's unfortunate the location is so awkward. Once you get over having to drive through a gas station to get to the parking lot, the rest is history. Some of the best food I've had in a while. It's pricey, but you won't go home upset. (Read: WORTH EVERY PENNY). Great service. Excellent wine. Delicious food. I've taken my wife out for several celebrations and left happy and pleasantly full."

  • "We tried Just when it had opened, but it was still ironing out its kinks. Well, we tried it again for our 10th anniversary dinner last week and we were wowed to say the least. Our server was beyond professional, knowledgeable, helpful, charming and friendly. The food was simply superb. We had the dumplings, Foie Gras sliders (AMAZING!) Morroccan chicken & the short ribs which were oozing with flavor. The wine list was plentiful and drinks were mixed perfectly. The atmosphere is romantic and sleek, and is perfect for couples or groups. I highly suggest you try it now that it has hit its stride. We cannot wait to return for our next special occasion meal or just to indulge alone or with friends."

  • "We went out to celebrate my husband's birthday last night and the dinner and service were impeccable. The location is a bit odd, if you've never before visited (behind a Delta gas station) and the food is pricey (dinner for two, last night--and a generous tip--added up to about $195). That's why we reserve our experiences for special occasions. I expect that we will visit again in a few months."

  • "We have recently eaten at Just restaurant in Old Bridge. The restaurant is located behind a gas station, next to a convenience store, but the location is not an indication of the quality of this eatery. With many years livening in this area, the quality of the food at Just is far above any other continental restaurant in the area. We enjoyed the beet and caesar salads, the duck was outstanding, and the truffle french fries were sinful. Of course, we needed to finish this wonderful meal with something sweet, so we tried the oreo cookie zeppoles, fabulous. We are going to bring our family back to celebrate our anniversary."

  • "Just should start paying me for all the times I talk about this place! I have been four times now, and each time is better than the last. I wanted a place to eat that wasn't a "family" restaurant. JUST fits the bill. This last time we went, we took my ill mother for her birthday and they could not have been more attentive and courteous. You must go to JUST, don't wait for a celebration. Go because it's Wednesday!"

  • "The food and service are ALWAYS wonderful! The pretzel rolls and flavored butter are amazing! The food is presented beautifully and is both creative and delicious! The only two negatives I would think are worth mentioning are that you must drive THROUGH a GAS STATION to get to the restaurant, and their bar is too small. I believe it only seats 8. That is a problem during their "happy hour". Nevertheless, those things would NEVER keep us away! The key to the gas station thing is that once you've accomplished LOCATING the restaurant, the gas station is your landmark!"

  • "I was aware of the the higher priced menu going into it, but the quality was meh.The food was for the most part good, but every item on the menu cost more then it was worth. The staff seemed a little confused when I ask simple questions, but they were nice and genuinely wanted to be helpful. "

All that while keeping the price reasonably low. I'll be coming back soon and I would highly recommend anyone to do the same. "

  • "A family member of mine shared this neighborhood gem with me. I went with my daughter and grand daughter for dinner. The selections were great and was within the price range of most restaurants for special occasions such as Mother's Day. The food was great "as is", but a dash of salt would have enhanced the flavor. There was no salt on the table and I felt I would have insulted the chef by asking for salt. I anticipated the children's menu being 1/2 the price of the adult menu, but felt that the children's menu was too expensive. At $55 per adult, each child under 5 could have eaten chicken fingers and burgers for free. Overall it was an excellent experience and I will go back to try items off the regular menu."

  • "My wife and I were enjoying a wonderful meal until dessert.The food is creative and the wine list is very well priced.The calamari appetizer was great.My wife's tuna tartare was just okay and not very plentiful.We both had filets for our entree and they were cooked perfectly.Then came the rude surprise that ruined the meal. I ordered coffee with my dessert.It was barely lukewarm and I told the waitress. She offered a fresh cup and I said I'll finish this, but to please bring me a fresh cup that is hot.When I got the bill, I was charged $8.00 for coffee. They have the nerve to charge $4 a cup with no refills, and on top of that they don't even share this policy with you. I almost had another cup before I found out.Almost $12 for coffee!Nuts!"

  • "It may just be that we went on a Sun this time around as opposed to our normal Sat visit, but if this had been my first visit to Just as opposed to my 3rd, I would not go back. The service was spotty & the place was not packed. The appetizers were ok but the entrees were definately lacking. I had the filet mignon, which was good but it was accompanied by a coagulated swirl of polenta that was not appetizing to me. My husband had the tuna and when it came out, it did not have the normal red color. It was more of a mottled pink-grey and smelled fishy. I tried it and it was way too fishy. He didn't finish it. We expressed our concerns to the waiter but never heard another word about it. The desserts were awesome! Oreo zeppoles!!"

  • "The staff was so friendly. They recommended drinks at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party, carried our drinks to the table upon their arrival, and even gave the ladies a pocketbook stand (any lady knows it can be a burden holding a small clutch or hanging a large pocketbook over your chair). Little plush stools were put by our side to sit our bag down. From the pretzel rolls serves with a mustard butter to the appetizers of scallops to the shrimp and pork stuffed dumpling, we were in heaven. Then came our main course. Let me say the sea bass was as light as a feather, and my husband who is a tuna expert was quite impressed. We would recommend this restaurant to diners who appreciate phenomenal food and service."

  • "On a Tuesday eve there were only three tables occupied but the food was scrumptious and ,of course, the service was really great. Pierogis and tuna cones (these are a must) for appetizers and I had the duckling. Not one bad thing to eat. I hope this place can survive- it is really a foodie gem. Most wines were under $50 bucks, many delights by the glass. My table mates had seared tuna -also very good. Lemon cheese cake for dessert- another must have. Lucas our waiter was just great and attentive but I'm sure he would have been the same if the place were crowded."

  • "Like the other reviews said, it is very easy to drive by. It is set back on Rte 9 behind Delta gas station. Once you get there, it is well worth it. We were greeted by friendly hostesses. We arrived early, so my husband and I enjoyed a drink at their cozy bar. The hostess came by the bar and escorted us to our table. The tables are very close to one another, so save the private conversations for another time. My husband had the spicy tuna cones for an appy and loved them! I ate the NY Strip and smashed potatoes. Both were tasty. Save room for dessert! We couldn't decide which we wanted, so we ordered Oreo Zeppoles and Mona Lisa. Both were good, but Mona Lisa was a mixture of rich-creamy mouse and a crispy wafer. Delicious!"

  • "The menu was very interesting and got me very excited about the food we were about to get. The pretzel roll with mustard butter is an awesome twist on the traditional starter bread. I could tell the chef took risks with the menu, but the execution was such a disappointment. The Spicy Tuna Cone were in a tuile cone that was way too sweet which takes away from how amazing the Spicy Tuna flavoring was. The Vegetarian Tower tasted like a bad Chinese restaurant dish which was due to the awful sauce. The Long Island Duck was clearly a grade C duck and I had never had risotto taste and cooked like that. Very disappointing. I think the menu is perfect, the execution just need a lot of work. Someone should taste the food before they serve it."

  • "Overall it was a terrific dining experience. There was a varied choice of appetizers so our party of four ordered six different selections and shared them. All were delicious but the favorite was the goat cheese croquettes. The entrée and desert choices were also delicious with the favorites being the chili glazed short ribs and the chocolate Nutella wontons."
