Definitely a nice restaurant. Lovely to sit outside--lots of heaters during this time of increased safety--and food was very nice. Great atmosphere.

Everything was fine. There was a couple at an outside table (like us) who had 2 small dogs with them sitting in chairs literally up at the table. One was wandering around the restaurant. Definitely not assistance dogs so they should not have been in a restaurant

Welcoming was genuine, place was clean and in compliance with CDC.
Benjamin went extra miles in suggesting food and drinks and delivered an exceptional service through the night. He was courteous, respectful, professional and friendly.
Food was delicious and affordable. We will definitely be back to DonJito soon.

We sat outside and the tower heaters were ok
The inside seating was far less socially distant than we would have been comfortable with

We enjoyed our dinner on the outdoor patio. There has been one change since our previous visit: half the patio is open but the other half is now enclosed in a tent, making it less safe from a Covid point of view.
Service was very good and they were accommodating about giving us a truly outdoor table.
Highly recommend the teriyaki wings for an appetizer (they were out of them last time).

This was my second time here. About a year apart. Food is good, creative and good looking. Drinks are weak, and when you’re spending a lot of money you should get a good drink. Service is all over the place, as if busboys and waiters are working for the first time. Takes away from the meal. The people I were with loved it.

It was wonderful. Busy Friday night. We sat inside. The tables are distanced in accordance with social distance. The staff are all so helpful and kind. Our server Brett is wonderful! We have had him serve us every time we go. The food is great! The drinks are awesome! The margaritas are freshly made! The music is a bit loud but it does create an upbeat ambiance. We will be back.

Don Jito ALWAYS delivers exception quality across the board. The food is fantastic, the service excellent, ambiance awesome, and the owner/manager gave us a free desert and champagne since we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary.

Wonderful safe outdoor dining. Beautiful patio in back with heat lamps. Tables spaced apart. No tent (we won't go to an outdoor restaurant with a tent that covered and enclosed on 3 sides). Food and drinks were very good. Special red snapper paella was phenomenal (beautiful presentation). Only downside is they were out of two things we initially ordered. I assume they weren't expecting the business they got on a weekday night. Covid procedures were followed and service was very good.

The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We also enjoyed the special bar drinks, and dessert. Everything about this place screams fastidious , eloquent , and scrumptious , can’t wait to return with friends and family

The experience started with bad cocktails. Friend ordered a Mojito but asked for Malibu rum. Received the cocktail and it didn’t have malibu rum. Mentioned it to the waiter who then brought over a shot glass of the Malibu rum to pour into the drink instead of making a new one with the proper balance is liquor. Never offered to replace the mixed drink even after we asked to replace it with a completely different one. I had ordered a strawberry margarita but they were out (? Out of strawberry margaritas at Mexican place?) Got a mango instead and there was no mango flavor. Ordered the red snapper, it was loaded with a ranchero type sauce (menu said coconut ginger of which there was no ginger or coconut flavor at all). Since it was a full grilled fish with head and all you Couldn’t see what you were eating with thick sauce on it. I personally don’t eat fish heads so it was really hard to tell what you were eating with the sauce on 100% of the fish. Potatoes tasted like from a box. The best part of my meal was the roasted Brussel sprouts under the fish. It’s such a cute place and we were so disappointed with the entire experience.

We had a fabulous meal at Don Jito. The outside seating is fantastic. Food is delicious and the wait staff was very accommodating to our requests. Hope they have heat lamps for the fall and early winter to be able to continue to dine there once the weather gets colder.

Brunch menu was very limited and not advertised on website. When we asked if we could see a lunch/dinner menu, we were not afforded that option. Unfortunately, we ended up leaving because of the unexpected limitations.

Donjito is a neighborhood favorite of my family’s and we were excited to share the experience with friends. Unfortunately we did not have a great brunch experience.

My drink was very spicy and not what I expected, but well presented. Started with chicken empanadas, which were enjoyable. My seafood paella was talk amongst the tables and very delicious. Tacos inexpensive and cool combination for only $10. Loved ambience, music fitting to theme and staff were friendly. Would definitely come back.

We ate outdoors. Patio was very cute. Service was excellent. Food was solid, but not memorable. We were there for a girls night out and shared a bunch of plates. Highlight was the Brussels on the app menu, lowlight was the octopus which we had really high hopes for but didn’t deliver. Cocktails were excellent.
