Djon's Steak & Lobster House Ratings and Reviews
Food and service were great. Only complaint. Was While Melbourne was under a boil water advisory, the restaurant served actual boiled water. When questioned about the aweful taste of the water, they stated it was filtered and boiled. So we were offered and charged for bottled water at 6$ a bottle. For a table of 8.
The food was marginal at best. I have been going to Dijons for 20 years, and the food is nowhere near the quality it once was. Everything seems to be of lower quality than it once was, and portions on allot of items have gotten much smaller, while the price continues its upward trend. Examples, creme Bruleè used to come in a approx 6"x3" shallow dish, it now comes in a 2" round sauce dish. Same for the Brie, it also has drastically shrunk in size. The steak options are slim and not consistent with what you would expect from a $60 cut of meat. No bone in ribeye and you claim to be a steak house. Mixed drinks not that good for a high end restaraunt. There are allot of good things to say, but let's be honest, when you pay $300 for dinner for 2 it's the negatives that resonate.
We were traveling and used Open Table to find a local, unique place for dinner. Interesting setting and service was very good. We had baked Brie as out appetizer and it was tasty, but not warm & gooey like I'm used to. We each had a different salad (house & Caesar) and both were very good. If you order a steak (their specialty) it comes with mashed potatoes and green beans, but you can upgrade to other sides if you wish. The steak came with some type of sauce that reminded me of a Salisbury steak flavor. It was an average steak that was a bit bland. Our reservation was for 8:00 and we got a call telling us to be sure to arrive on time because it was their "early night" and we'd need to wrap up dinner early. Kind of made us rush through the meal. I'd give it a try again to make sure it wasn't just an "off" night.
They were very accommodating for us with our family. This is an extremely nice restaurant and we had our young family. They were so understanding on bringing us food quickly for the little ones and still making a fantastic entrees for me and my wife. We loved the lobster and pasta and my special grouper was amazing!! I would highly recommend!!
The food was very good - the service not so much. The kitchen was extremely slow. We waited over more than one hour and a half for our food - they were also out of lobster bisque and Maine lobster - our reservation was for 7:45 pm so it was not that late to be out of the best items on their menu. The restaurant was very noisy. Pianist at the bar was great. I will give them another try and reserve judgement - perhaps it was just a bad night.
We were in town in advance of our son attending college and wanted to get to know some different eateries. We chose Djons because it was close. We brought our own wine (as we do occasionally) but forgot to call ahead to ask the policy. No problem! Very reasonable $20.00 corkage. Our server Morgan was great-helpful but no hovering and quite engaging. Sad to hear she was leaving to pursue her PhD. The menu was a bit expensive, but the food was spot on, especially the escargot and veal chop. The piano player in the lounge was a nice touch, and a reason to stop for an after dinner drink on the way out. All in all a very good experience!
We wanted to go somewhere special to celebrate completion of cancer treatments. For us this fit the bill. My steak was cooked to perfection (medium rare), and my wife's Grouper perfect. Service was friendly, but professional, and atmosphere very comfortable and relaxing.
We have enjoyed this restaurant on many occasions. On our most recent visit, we chose a high top table in the bar. Tucked in a corner, it was very nice. However, we experienced bad service and got the feeling of being ignored, despite being right across from the bar. It seemed as if there were not enough staff, at least handling the bar area/tables, even though we saw several Managers moving about. No Managers visited us until nearly at the end of the evening, despite our efforts to flag down personnel. No apologies were made. No consideration given. The food quality and presentation are outstanding. But we waited over 50 minutes for two salads and a gourmet burger, nearly causing us to be late for an engagement after dinner. This is the frustrating part...we LOVE THIS PLACE, but have struggled with slow service and being ignored on the last two consecutive visits. Nevertheless, we will return, hoping things get better. Perhaps we will stick to the main dining room from now on. Unfortunate, as ANY seat in the house should experience the same high level of service and attention at an establishment of this caliber and price level.
