We were there at the end of the night when the place was kinda closing down. Many restaurant employees might give a little attitude but the staff at d’jeet was kind and generous.

I have been here many times and always a solid meal with great service. I shared the couscous soup with a friend. It had root vegetables, couscous and wonderful flavoring. You don't need to be a vegan to really love this innovative soup. My fish tacos were one of the best. Instead of a taco shell, it was like a lettuce wrap, made it even better as far as I'm concerned. No one in my party had anything but praises. Being a BYOB is another plus :)

Food was very good but $36 for 5 very small scallops with virtually nothing else with it was ridiculously expensive. If you are going to charge that much for an entree it should include salad, vegetable, starch and dessert.

Last minute dinner with my wife. We split the peach salad special to start then both of us had the scallops special which was served on bed of mashed sweet potatoes and was sensational. Erica was sweet and provided attentive, friendly service. This place never disappoints. Food is fresh, delicious, and unique and the service is always great too.

Nice find. Don't let the fact that it is in a shoppping center that closes at 6 keep you away. Our server was very attentive and paced the dinner well. Small menu but something for everyone. BYOB makes it reasonably priced.

Djeet is among our favorites that we keep returning to. Food is creative, tasty, and fresh. It looks great when served and tastes even better. The other night I had a smoked salmon appetizer with avocado, chopped beets, and pumpernickel chips. This was one of the nightly specials. It was so good "I didn't want it to end". For an entree, I saw someone having the fish tacos, which are made with lettuce wraps. Had to try them and was very well-pleased.

This restaurant looks so nice inside and there is outdoor seating available whenever the weather cooperates. The servers are extremely knowledgeable. Our server, Laura, was so kind and hospitable that we felt like family, which under oath we are not.

Writing this review makes me want to go back that much sooner.
We will return!

Service was just OK, I’ll Beyonce was great, hostess was fantastic. Portion size was very small, my wife and I both had an appetizer and an entrée. After we left the table we drove into the heart of red Bank and had two more appetizers and a dessert, we were still hungry. I applied the new concept, so some other dishes coming out that looked nice but prices have to be lower for the portion

We were celebrating a friend’s birthday. Menu was appealing with great choices for the ladies. We always appreciate BYOB as well. We had a very attentive waitress and everyone enjoyed their meal. We all appreciated the relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is small and the tables are a little close together but the overall experience was very pleasant.

Always great food and a pleasurable dining experience. Never disappointed. Our server, Jessie, was so knowledgeable and friendly, able to provide great description of the night's special offerings. Speaking of which, try not to miss the soft-shell crab appetizer while it's available. Never had better!

Needless to say, we love this place. It's on our shortlist and we will always keep coming back.

Went here for spring Jersey Shore Restaurant Week. The yellowfin Tuna tartare was light and a great starter, the mushroom soup was robust and earthy. For our entree, the Gnocchi were fluffy and melt in mouth delicious with the fresh pomodoro sauce. The Salmon was delicate and perfectly done. For dessert, the smores ice cream was a nice finish. This is a very good BYO restaurant. A bit noisy with several smallish tables (like ours was) but the meal itself and the service were outstanding. Would definitely come here again.

This was our second time at D'Jeet and it was on Valentine's Day. The place is very nice, but a little sparse on ambiance. Our waitress was friendly, accommodating and helpful with the menu, especially choosing desert. The menu is built on fresh, local if available, ingredients that are usually cooked with creativity and a touch of class, but the result is a very small menu so selections are limited. If you're looking for lots of choices, this is not the place for you.

We started with yellowfin tuna tartare served chopped over thin slices of avocado with free form, fried rice paper crackers. The tuna was yummy, the avocado perfectly ripe, the cracker quite tasty. That was a nice start.

My date had the Scottish salmon perfectly grilled with accompaniments. It was a solid representation of what the chef is capable of preparing. I had a roasted Colorado lamb shank that was disappointing. The natural flavor of the meat was very strong, gamey, and I love lamb so I know it wasn't just me. It was not well seasoned, needed salt and pepper, was very fatty and the sauce (gravy) was bland. The pureed butternut squash it was served over was not particularly tasty either. The dish was just not up to their usual standards and something I would never order again.

The desert recommended by our lovely young waitress was the bomb. A cocoa infused bread pudding served with homemade ice cream, a chocolate ganache and a few fresh berries. That disappeared and we were thinking about licking the plate, but manners prevailed.

D'Jeet is a nice place, but it is pricey, probably because it's in the Grove, a high-end shopping plaza in Shrewsbury. Most of the entrees are well over $30 and the appetizers are up there, too. The first time I felt the value was better than this time, but there was the disappointing lamb that offset things. Oh, it is BYOB so bring your own wine.
