Food is amazing as always. I’ve been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. My favorites are the calamari salad, the Joey sandwich and the burger.

Every time we make the trip to d'jeet from North Jersey, it is always worth it! The food is consistently original, fresh and delicious and Casey's ricotta gnocchi are amazing. Great comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff.

The food was fresh and creative. The carrot, ginger and coconut soup was amazing , and my scallop dish was interesting and delicious. The ambiance was modern and cool, and well above average for a strip mall restaurant. Overall, a good experience and we will be back.

Hi there,

I’m a frequent diner here. I had the Berkshire Pork Chop special and it was delicious!! Totally loved it.

One thing, the dish needs more of those amazing vegetables and Farro, especially alongside that monster pork chop!

Also, generally, I’ve noticed that many of your dishes have been low on the vegetables/grains/fruit, lately. The meat to vegetable/grain ratio is not balanced, and to be healthy, dishes should really have more vegetables/grains in it than meat. I love my meat, but even my very carnivorous family has been trying to scale back on the meat and eat more veggies and grains.

Your restaurant is so healthy and earthy, we all expect more of a concentration on nutrition and wellness.

Just a thought.

Thanks!
Erin

Went on mother's Day service was not up to its normal standard. Would avoid this place on a holiday since most of staff were in- experienced.

They had a lovely Mother’s Day menu. I e joyed my lobster and my daughter enjoyed her fritata. My husband had the fish tacos. It was b.y.o.b. and we had homemade ice cream ale for 🍨 dessert.

The restaurant was more than half empty, but the first table we were offered faced the kitchen. When we asked for a different table they were reluctant to make the change, but did so. The food was average at best. When we received the check there was a notation at the bottom stating that there was a $1.00 surcharge for using a credit card. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and adding this surcharge is just not called for. The overall experience was less than satisfying.

With so few "farm to table" or "locally sourced" establishments available D'jeet is the perfect spot for well thought out, delicious meal. The staff are friendly and welcome you as soon as you walk in. They're attentive and polite. The menu is a perfect blend of eclectic and traditional foods, and the specials are usually our go to. We'll continue to visit D'jeet and have become regulars.

Our server Erica did a nice job along with the rest of the wait staff. Casey (chef and owner) made some lovely fish dishes and all in all a great dinner for not crazy prices. Also, the BYOB really helps in the cost regard.

My wife was looking forward to an entree which was stricken from the menu with the change of seasons. Oh well, we settled for some slightly pricey strip steaks which were very good although a little on the rare side. I guess it's better than having them come out over cooked. The Goat Cheese Fritters where out of control! They alone made it worth the trip. Our server was very attentive and kind. Couldn't ask for more from her.

Chicken entree didn’t have as much flavor, was a bit drier than usual and would have loved to have more vegetables. Chicken was also not browned, so it looked raw but was still dry somehow. There was 1/2 chicken and very little vegetable. Meat to veggie ratio is a bit off.

Mint ice cream dessert was delicious!

We come often and order the sandwiches , the waiter (male) did not offer us any bread which he did for larger tables and he asked us if we wanted a side salad , french fries or truffle fries with no mention that this is extra , the sandwich normally comes with a small salad on the plate when the bill came an extra 7.75 cents charged for the fries very disapointing ! so tip was reduced

Excellent atmosphere with an open kitchen and everyone kept smelling these wonderful aromas from there as they were preparing the dinner. Thought the high quality of food at a reasonable price made this place a value.

I decided to order the "Lobster Tail" entree based on my server's recommendation. When the plate was set in front of me, I couldn't believe how small it was. I basically got 3 bites out of the lobster tail. Not only was it not filling as an entree (it was more of an appetizer) but d'jeer has the audacity to charge $38 for it!!! After the plate was set in front of me and before I started eating, I mentioned to my server how disappointed I was because it was such a small portion -- definitely not filling enough for dinner and not worth what I was being charged. My server basically shrugged her shoulders and walked away. After that, she probably didn't want to come back to my table because we waited about 20 minutes after we were done eating to be asked whether we wanted to order dessert. Disappointing dinner and wait staff.

The food was great; I ordered “The Joey”, my favorite which it continues to be. My family members who were not familiar with d’jeet remarked at the quality and good taste of their selections, and my daughter and I thought the coffee was outstanding.
We’re looking forward to a return visit!
