We were greeted promptly upon arrival and the host asked what our preference for seating would be, as they have a dinning area, bar area with live music and outside terrace. The specials were very good and the menu is what I would call complete, steak, seafood, poultry and other specialities. Definitely going to be regulars.

 (Miami)·Dined 2 days ago

Poor quality in relation to price. No crab in king crab spring roll. Lobster bisque unremarkable. Tortellini and shrimp: over cooked pasta with gluey sauce. $42 veal chop under seasoned and not as thick as a high quality/price steak house should offer. Wedge salad right-out-of-the-fridge cold. Nice selection of wine by the glass. Very good table service (John) but we had requested a quiet table (which we found out later are available outside) but we’re seated in a large room with poor acoustics and a horrendous noise level. Younger folks don’t seem to mind this: perhaps it’s because they’re looking at phones rather than trying to have a conversation.

Excellent food and service. David was a great waiter and the food was great. However our table was in the hallway and all during dinner we had waiters, server and support folks walking past the table. I would recommend your restaurant for the food and service but not for the seating - it was not what I expected and will probably not be going back. Too expensive for such terrible seating.

The food was the finest I have encountered anywhere. The prices are more than reasonable. We were on vacation and booked this reservation based on a Google search for restaurants in our area. It would be worth visiting Melbourne again just to dine here. Everything was perfect. I have eaten at many fine restaurants across the U.S., but this one is #1 on my list.

I’ve been in so many restaurants in this area in the ten years I’ve lived here, but I had never been to Djon’s until a few weeks ago. Now, I’ve been there 4 times already with different people at different times and for different reasons. Every time was a special experience with excellent food, impeccable service, and the best atmosphere in Brevard. It’s become my favorite.

We enjoyed our meals and liked that it's not noisy. Too much food for me though since we ordered the escargot as a starter - so I'm set for dinner tomorrow! Get there near sunset and you can enjoy a beautiful view before heading into the restaurant.

This restaurant turned out to be a real surprise. Maybe I am a bit of a food snob but I really wasn't expecting too much from Melbourne Beach. This place is mostly a quick eats kind of area. What a wonderful surprise! The food is EXCEPTIONAL. First, I was nicely surprised by the decor of the restaurant. Had it not been chilly out, it would have been nice to sit outside by the fire pit. But we decided to dine indoors. Good choice as this restaurant has beautiful dining rooms. The service first rate. Our server, Rebecca, was incredibly knowledgeable regarding food preparation. The steaks are dry aged and properly prepared. I had a incredible rack of lamb that was meaty without being fatty. The bar drinks are expensive but they don't water them down. The crème brulee dessert was disappointing and that is putting it kindly. Stay away from that. But all in all, this is a first rate restaurant and when I go back to Melbourne Beach in the spring I will definitely visit again.

 (New York Area)·Dined on November 5, 2017

First impression was great - the host/manager was welcoming and even showed us several table options to choose from since it was our first time there. Unfortunately our server seemed too busy to care about us too much, for example we were constantly asking for more water because he didn't refill it. Everything that came out from the kitchen for me was wrong. The dressing on my beet salad was wrong - our server argued with me and then the kitchen just changed out the arugula and left the beets with some of the wrong dressing on the plate. My steak was undercooked (I used to manage a steakhouse) and our server just told us to wait while they re-cooked it. He didn't give me my sides to eat in the meantime (I'm pregnant and just had to wait hungry) or alert his manager. Finally, I ordered the molten chocolate cake for desert. Our server brought it out with pumpkin ice cream instead of the vanilla it was supposed to come with. I told him I don't like pumpkin ice cream and he merely offered to scrape it off for me. This is not the level of service I expect from a $30-$50 a plate restaurant. The food was mostly good when it came out corrected, but not good enough for me to dine here again.

This place is truly a gem ! Great food & service - waitress, Rebecca, was terrific - friendly, helpful and professional ! Food was outstanding - Melbourne is lucky to have a great spot like this - we had lunch-excellent wine and interesting food items. Outdoor patio was an added great touch. Could tell nighttime must be fun - piano bar ! Inside dining room very nice, clean and overall great decor. Doesn't look like what you might find in Melbourne- more eclectic - bathrooms ultra modern. Owner pays close attention to detail. Well worth a trip !!

 (Atlanta)·Dined on October 21, 2017

Djon's is consistently excellent. From first greeting to last "thank you" the food, the service, ad most importantly the consistency of quality is superb. We are part-time Cocoa Beach residents and were entertaining Atlanta guests for a long weekend. Space Coast restaurants can be challenging but Djon's is always on top of their game. Appetizers are fresh, attractively presented and well proportioned. Salads outstanding. We have never been disappointed with the featured seafood (this visit was grouper and scallops which two of us enjoyed) and off-the-menu items (steak and lobster tail for the others in our party). Service is exceptional and our server's wine knowledge was up to the task. Large parties can make the dining room noisy and the piano bar does not offer an attractive quieter option. Outside seating -- an option -- may be the best alternative. Djon's has great respect for the food, the service and the overall ambience. Just a touch less noise and it would near perfection.

The food was excellent but it was my 1 year wedding anniversary and they did nothing special at all. I noted that it was our anniversary when I made the reservation in open table. Also, we wanted to split dessert (bananas foster) but instead we were given and charged for two orders and it was too much for us to finish. We only wanted to share and I was hoping for some kind of acknowledgement of our anniversary but there was none. This same thing happened when I took my husband here for his birthday. Maybe they just don't do anything special but I expected more.

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.
