Interesting vibe. Wasn’t sure if I felt like I was on a cruise or a restaurant in the Mediterranean ( maybe Turkey or Israel). Located behind a gas station, and next to an International Market. Food was very tasty. Service amusing. Portions on the large side. Would definitely return.

Great food. A nice experience overall. The side door opens a lot to serve patio guests which made the main room cold but it is what it is.

The fresh rolls and mustard butter were awesome. The pear salad, juicy Lucy burger and short rib were all very good. Calamari was rubbery and soggy, Very disappointing. Chocolate mouse cake was old and stale. So old that when you cut it you can see the darken old crusty side verse the inside color and texture of the mouse. The waitress told us it was made fresh. Our waitress and no one else in the restaurant seemed too concerned about wearing a mask. She seemed like she didn’t know what she was doing. The music was being controlled by a teenager and he kept raising the volume. He was also hanging out at the bar with I’m guessing some of his buddy’s. They were loud. Not the best $200 meal for two I’ve ever had.
3 stars because most of the food was very good.

JUST is my go-to for a local fine dining experience. I have been going here for years. The menu is one of the most original I've ever seen and the quality of the ingredients comes through in the wonderful preparation and presentation. Don't let the fact that this restaurant is located behind a gas station fool you. From the moment you walk in the front door you realize that you are in for as fine a dining experience as you can imagine.

I do miss the Thai Shrimp Bisque Soup that used to be on their menu.

We were the only ones in at the time on a Wednesday night. The service was good and the food was delicious at every course. The drinks are also strong. I will come back here again to try other menu items.

I like this place. The ambiance and music is great. The food is very interesting and very good— although I had the branzino which was a very small portion. My real problem was the staff. No one was over 30 and the lack of professionalism showed. My waiter was a lovely young guy but very hyper.He asked us for our dinner orders before bringing our drink orders. When I told him I’d like our drinks first, he said it would take 10 minutes. He was very anxious and there was no one over seeing the dining room which would have made this experience better. I will go back — one more time.

We went to Just for the first time for Valentine’s Day dinner, with our 1 year old son in attendance. They were very accommodating and the entire experience was amazing. The food was great and the service was outstanding! My lady and I both agreed that Just has become one of our favorite restaurants to visit! We’ll be back, soon and often!

Food while alittle expensive was very good along with service. What we were not happy about was how small the table were, very hard to move or place things on the table. Also with covid restrictions seemed like the table were very close together and when we were leaving seemed every table was filled. This made us a bit uncomfortable as I thought there should been more tables skipped as we have found in other restaurants.

What a great time. The hostess, who was also our server - was fantastic. I'm sorry to not remember her name (bad with that) She checked in with us, offered her food favorites and even offered to go to the store in parking lot to grab a red bull for my husband, since they did not have any at the moment.

Now, let's talk about the delicious food. I had the short rib ravioli - AMAZING. And my husband had the prime rib - also amazing.

We will definitely be back!

JUST was good, and we will go back. We enjoyed the smaller menu as it highlights some great options. The classify as a contemporary American food, and I don't know what that means. They had a mix of Asian, Indian, and somewhat BBQ'y flavors on there. Looking forward to go back soon.

Went New Years Eve. Food was delicious but service was off. Drinks took a long time to get. The waiter tried taking our plates about a dozen times before we were finished. Just wanted to sit and enjoy the conversation, drinks and food before leaving and felt like we were being rushed. So maybe with a different waiter I’d have a better overall opinion but that threw us off. I’d try again on a regular night to see how different it fares.

We had the opportunity to dine out on Friday and enjoy the $1 Tuna Cone special Just was running. Due to the COVID restrictions we have limited our dining out but couldn’t resist going to one of our favorite restaurants for their famous tuna cones! Just always delivers and this meal was no exception. Of course we started with the tuna cones, followed with the Salmon and couscous and the garlic Short Ribs with creamy whipped potatoes. We were never rushed and able to take our time, relax and enjoy the great food. Our waiter, Suvhan was very attentive, helpful and fun to converse with. We also have to shout out to the bartender, she went out of her way to accommodate us and serve the most delicious and cold cocktails. Chef Chris came out to meet us and we had a pleasant conversation with him. His presence made our meal very special for us. Everyone dining that night was having a wonderful time and the feeling in the room was comfortable and cheerful. Overall another great experience at Just. Look forward to returning soon.

We ate at Just regularly prior to the pandemic and ordered take out from time to time during quarantine. We also went a few times over the summer for outdoor dinning. We just went to dine in for a special occasion but fortunately or unfortunately we were the only ones dinning inside so we didn't have to worry about distance... I hope it was just a function of the timing after the thanksgiving weekend. There has been a spike in cases nationwide. We will continue to support our favorite local restaurant.

Everything was amazing. We were able to seat inside. The server was kind and attentive. The food was exceptional. Such a wonderful repeat experience. The mushroom risotto was wonderful as always. The Caesar and pear salads were perfect. The bolognese was to die for. Never can go wrong here! Sunday is a perfect day for dates, and quiet get-togethers!

Don't bother with the Honey Stung Fried Chicken. It's not very flavorful. Very similar to Orange Chicken that you can get at a Chinese restaurant except it's over mashed potatoes. The seared salmon was excellent as was the poached pear salad with shrimp added. The short rib tacos were good, but was only short rib meat on a tortilla. Nothing to top it with. Also, the music was a bit too loud. The service was excellent.

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.
