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.

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?

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.
