A great way to celebrate my birthday! Excellent service by Jess. The appetizer choices here are the best...wish I could eat them all...over the years I have tried most, but my favorite is the tuna cones. And the pretzel rolls with the honey mustard butter are to die for. Entrees were the volcanos tuna, which my husband really enjoyed with the extra hot topping. The tuna is very very rare so be prepared. I chose the grand marinea shrimp and substituted the rice with pasta. Dessert was affogata and a treat. We chose an excellent French Chardonnay and couldn’t have been happier!

For as long as we’ve been going to Just, every experience has been consistently exceptional. The food, service and atmosphere are always excellent.
I recently used Just to cater a small gathering at my home- they surpassed my expectations. They were professional, courteous and extremely detailed. The quality and presentation of the food was outstanding. I couldn’t have been happier.

This is the first time we have visited this restaurant "Just" since the Corona Virus started. We loved this restaurant because their food and service has always been perfect. The price is a little high, but worth it. They have a nice outdoor setup considering it consists partially of the parking lot, but it is comfortable and socially distanced. They have heaters so in the crisp fall evening we were not cold or uncomfortable at all. The food and service were still impeccable.

We chose outside due to covid risks but we were literally in a parking lot behind a gas station. And more importantly the foo d was just mediocre as well as the service. The entrees were in the high 20 and $30s but the quality food was just like ordering from your local chinese restaurant but this was placed in a fancy dish. I would not recommend this restaurant! Website says guaranteed to be unforgettable. Please tell me how?

Food is fusion. Not bad. Certain ingredients don’t seem as fresh as they should be for the price. Location is odd, tucked behind a gas station.

Everything was good. Only thing was the duck fried rice. The fried rice had too much red pepper and large chunks of carrots. It was not smooth. The duck was good.

The outside seating is nice, but certainly not the same ambiance as inside. They have done a good job at keeping most of the tables off of the blacktop and on the paved sidewalk and patio. Drink specials were also a nice perk and very tasty. Food specials were available and the stuffed chicken was delicious. We will be back again in the near future.

It's been a while since I've been here. The food and service is just as great as it was when I last dined there. The quality of the food served is outstanding and the staff goes above and beyond to make your experience an enjoyable one. The outdoor seating is very comfortable and the tables are set up so everyone is socially distant.

As always, food was delicious, well-timed and service was on point and very attentive. The outdoor seating was spaced well and looked nice, however, when we asked if they could possibly play some music (which definitely enhances one's overall dining experience), we were told that their speaker system was out, which I thought was lame, because that truly is one of the key ingredients to feeling relaxed when going out and spending $. Additionally, I also suggest that they change their menu a bit with seasons, as every time we go, it is the same, and there are never any specials.

Service was very slow and it wasn't even that busy.
We wanted a bottle of Prosecco but we were told that we couldn't buy a bottle - not sure why. but we could order glasses.
I wouldn't go out of my way to go to dinner there again.

Interesting Menu Choices and presented very nicely. Menu hasn't really changed much over the last few years but they what's there they do well. Normally on Valentine's Day they are rushing the ordering, not allowing customers to choose their drinks or appetizers at their leisure but making them complete their total cocktail, wine, appetizer, entre order right away and all at once. This year we had a bit earlier reservation so it wasn't as rushed. Very nice atmosphere and decor in there and there is a really great eastern european market right attached in the same building - worth a visit.
