Pretzel rolls and the broccoli app are a must! Spicy tuna cones were pretty good, as was the veal shank... but the chicken was WAY over seasoned and over cooked. If we make our way back it will be for assorted apps and wine.

Great food, went with wife for date night. We will go back. Place looks a bit odd driving up to it but worth a try. Some people squawked about the price, but if you want to dine out you need to pay. If you want to eat out at Applebee’s then go there instead. Good grub at regular prices.

I never fill out reviews but this was our first time visiting (We live on Staten Island ) and was a pick of my wife's for our 29 Wedding Anniversary, it was GREAT !. We had 6:30 reservations and were greeted nicely by two young ladies and seated promptly. Our server was Caitlyn and her team were verse in everything from drinks to dining questions. Service was fast, someone was always checking if we needed something. The drinks were great along with the food and desert.
The Mat' was also by 2-3 times. whoever trained your staff and supervises them is good.
Your reference # is 1080872707
My wife and I eat out on weekend and the next time we are in your area we will be in again.
Thanks

Something was just a little off - and it's hard to find, as located literally behind a gas station. // It's nice looking/modern. But was just too bright, which undermined the vibe. We were told at end they can actually control that and our comment would be shared. Food tried hard but fell a little short. Lamb chops - asked for med rare, got well. And when I returned them, our server acknowledged that the manager even saw well. But as importantly, they seem to not be able to get the pan hot enough, because the next try really lacked sear on either side. And the light sauce was nothing impressive. I could go on but overall, it just felt a little off.

Had dinner here last Valentine and we had a great experience. I ordered rib- eye and it was grilled to perfection (medium rare), my wife had volcano seared tuna and my daughter had the short rib ravioli and both of them were so delighted with their food. Katelyn, our waitress that night was phenomenal, she always checked on us if everything is good or if we need anything. Excellent over all experience. Highly recommended!

Everything was great as usual. It was Valentine's Day, so the only downside to this visit was that we couldn't take our time - were rushed a bit - but everything else was perfect

Just is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always wonderful and creative. The wait staff are very attentive. The place is well designed. Every time I go there, I find new favorite foods. I could make a meal just out of the appetizer choices. I have been slowly eating my way thru the main courses. The only hard part is not getting the same things every time. I have never been disappointed in my choices.

The food was very good, but unfortunately the atmosphere was a bit too loud so probably a good place for groups but not so much for a special occasion date.

I really wanted to like Just... but after my 1st visit, I have to say, Just is Just.. nothing extremely notable to ensure my comeback. Just so you know.. the location is behind a BP gas station and my uber driver would, know unless I told him where to go. Pro's:We were seated promptly for or 8:15 reservation. Upon sitting down , we were given a drink menu, offered their warm pretzel (in leu of a roll) which was devine and given the specials menu as well.
Drinks: The double pear martini- pretty good and smooth. The Pama passion was a bit on the sweet side and the seat 3 cosmo, again- the drinks were refreshing and the 1st round seemed to have a nice kick, but the rounds following those were not as strong. When you're paying 10+ for each drink, you'd expect some bite in your drink. Apps; We strictly ordered apps for our meals and shared them as a group, so I cannot comment on anything with their dinner menu.
We shared: the korean frien broccoli (ordered 2 as these were very flavor and had the right amount of heat), the spicy tuna cones (the cones are very small, and the spicy tuna filling is underwhelming. THIS is the dish I wanted to like the most, and probably liked it the least., the sticky pork belly was on black rice and we ordered it 2x as well, due to the flavors., last was the filet mgnon kebab, which was just Ok, I think the best part were the bbq chips that came with that meal. For desert, we shared the smores creme bruele and oreos zeppolis. The ceme bruele is not your typical one, so you may be disappointed to not see it upon delivery, it can be described as more of a creamy pudding with a caramel suprise in the bottom of the dish and a marshmallow topping. The oreo zeppolis were devine as well- 1 warm oreo in a puffy doughy pastries with light powdered sugar. In all, the drinks were Ok and 2 apps stuck out to us. Would I return? Maybe during happy hour... but not for a nice dinner out.. as I was planning to do the following week for valentines day.

THE LAMB CHOPS WERE OUTSTANDING - TENDER AND DELICIOUS.
LOVED THE OREO ZEPPOLAS!

(The only negative is that tables are too close for intimate dinner.)

Service not as good as usual. It seems they were understaffed and overcrowded and were unable to handle it. It was also the loudest meal I’ve had there. Some people are just very inconsiderate and act as if they’re in their own backyard.

We went there to celebrate my fiancée daughter, Justine eighteen birthday, must say, the management & servers knows what it's doing. Phenomenal quality, consistency and top notch service, Although, for our budget, Just Restaurant was expensive, I feel very comfortable saying that the food and service was way beyond excellent.

JUST is usually spot on wonderful but this last time there the duck was impossible to eat. That's a shame because I brought Mom for her first time there and her 80th birthday. They eventually took it off the bill but with way too much hesitation and annoyance. Might be a very long time before I go back to what was one of my favorite restaurants.

Fabulous! Didn’t try it for years because of the er....uh... “window dressing”. We didn’t want to eat behind a gas station! But I’m really glad we did. Met friends for a birthday meal. My wife and friend had a pink thing for drinks. Some delicious grapefruit thing. My pal and I kept it simple: a fine red Malbec.
Starters were delicious! Calamari. A Beef thingy. Peking duck tacos. Wow. Pretzel bread? Wow.
I had the lobster special w papardelle
My wife’s fish was delish.
And our friends had the fried chicken and lamb shank respectively (both mahvelous).
Dessert. Coffee. All amazing.
