    Food is awesome.. few hiccups with service in the beginning. Smaller indoor seating so for outside larger gatherings more heating should be readily available..

    We used to like the food at DonJito quite a bit. However, the last few times we have seen a fairly sharp deterioration in the quality of the food. It's not "bad", but not what it used to be. Pricing is reasonable

    Disappointed- have gone here several times and liked it here but the last couple times it has gone downhill. This last time was our last - we were brought to the table and left, had to ask for our waiter. Then we order drinks, apps and dinner. Asked several times for our drinks but they still showed up after our dinner arrived. It wasn’t even that busy. We ordered chicken fajitas which came with dark meat, not chicken breast. And then has to hunt down our waiter for our check so that we could pay to leave - went somewhere else for dessert because it was never offered.

    Found this place online, menu looked good so we made reservations and decided to give it a try. Walking in, restaurant appeared pretty empty. They immediately sat us outside and our waitress attended us promptly. She was very attentive (Brianna I believe). Even more so, the staff kept refilling our waters, checking to see if we were okay after bringing our food, it was great service as a whole. Food was delicious and margaritas as well. Paella was great! Will be returning. Ty!

    We had a lovely 50 th birthday dinner for our daughter & family. We had reservations for nine people. The staff was very friendly & service was great. We all ordered various dishes which were served hot & delicious. We are out in the back outside seating which was nice & enjoyable. Will be back.

    3rd time was not the charm! They are very short staffed. When we arrived 1 Bathroom had no toilet paper or paper towel or SOAP. The 2nd bathroom had no SOAP either. I told the waitress. At the end of our meal I wanted to wash my hands, still no soap. EWWWWW!! Busboy looked right and left everytime he came outside to serve the food. Not sure which table got which dish. Most patrons wisely sat outside on their lovely patio. Food was good this time. Dirty napkin wrapped around silverware. Not coming back.

    Wonderful outdoor patio in the back. It's an attractive area, much nicer than tables on the sidewalk. Menu has changed over the last couple of years but is still very good. Some of the dishes seem to have moved away from the original Latin cuisine. Highly recommend for outdoor dining.

    First time back since Covid and the food has definitely gone downhill. Dry fish and the empanadas were too doughy and not that tasty. Back garden not as nice as no flowers etc like there used to be. On a good note, excellent Palomas!!!!!

    This was our first time there, and we were so pleased by the service, the setting, and the food! All of the appetizers were quite delicious, and the main courses just continued building from there. In addition, the mixed drinks and cocktails were so good! We will definitely be returning to Donjito!

    Stopping in for dinner before a movie at the reopened theater. Mostly picked as it was walking distance to the theater. Nice, modern vibe inside. Sat up front at the high top tables. Decide to split app and dinner since we were going to a movie and the obligatory popcorn. The portions for both were certainly big enough to split. That and the mojitos were very tasty.

    Restaurant was nice, food was amazing. Delicious with a spin on traditional Spanish food and they had a special, 3 course meal including appetizer, main course and desert for $65 for Father's Day. Waitress shared they were short staffed that night with only 2 waiters but you really couldn't tell and she was very nice. I definitely plan on returning

    We arrived early at 4:30. Restaurant was almost empty. Lots of staff milling around without direction. The service was very slow. Our Guacamole was very bland, home made tortilla chips were delicious. Honey Hot Brussel sprouts were not hot or honeyed and undercooked. They offered to take them off the check. When we received check they were on check. They did remove when reminded. They also gave us 2 drinks on the house. The drinks were very potent and delicious. We all enjoyed our entrees which were well presented and very good. Management needs to wrangle their employees and focus them on their tasks.

    90 min to get our appetizers, air conditioning was on when it was cold outside, food wasn’t hot when we received it, wait staff was inattentive, main course took 2 hours to arrive. This place had amazing reviews and we were so excited only to be grossly disappointed.

    Very slow service - we waited an hour and 15 minutes for our food and we were the 3rd party seated in the restaurant. The prix fixe Mother's Day menu was very expensive for the quality of the food which was poor. The food was cold. The waffles were supposed to come with strawberries and blueberries as per the menu and came with neither. When asked for them they said they were out of strawberries when we were one of the first ones at the restaurant. Very disappointing Mother's Day meal.

    Love going here, but tonight’s service was not great. Got my drink wrong twice, so I went to the bar myself to get the correct drink. Understand cinco de mayo is going to be a busy night, but it seems they were very disorganized.

    Had paella as one of their Cinco de Mayo specials. Came with half a lobster; rice was fluffy and delicious. Margharita was nice and strong. Great service; Jonathan the owner works very hard to make sure everyone enjoying their meal. Bring quarters to feed parking meters on street.

    Took the wife and kids out to an early Sunday dinner at DonJito’s. Place was almost empty besides 1 or 2 other tables. Service was friendly and great without being overbearing. Food was EXCELLENT. Ordered the stuffed sweet plantains, seafood salad, calamari and empanadas de pollo for appetizer. Some of the best calamari and empanadas I’ve had and they both came with a great chipotle aioli dipping sauce. I ordered the salmon, wife had mofongo with churassco and the kids shared the pernil, kids burger and pasta dishes. Everything was made just right. Desserts were good too. Especially the brownie with ice cream. Will definitely be back again.

    Horrible service. Not understaffed because the table to the left and right of us got great service. Made 2 drink orders that they didn’t have. Waited forever for our waiter to take dessert order and eventually asked for the check and paid for dessert we never received.

    It was our 1st time there. The service is awful. After we were served our appetizers the waiter tried 2x to serve us desert. We told him we are still waiting for our dinner. When our dinner was served my skirt steak was cold. My husband food was warm. We asked for a glass water 2x (didn’t get it) We finally got our desert with no utensils. The manager went to get 2 spoons. He probably thought we were eating soup. The deserts was awful. The service was awful. We paid our bill and left. Nope won’t go back.

    The four of us ate at Don Jito's during Restaurant Week - it was BUSY, vibe was great and friendly. The food was wonderful - we had the curried mussels and empanadas for appetizers. The mussels sauce was so good and flavorful, i couldn't leave a drop behind. The empanadas - chicken, encased in a light crispy shell, came with a lightly spiced dip. We all ordered the Snapper Paella - a whole snapper dipped in batter and lightly fried on top of a bed of flavored rice...it wasn't what we expected, but it was DELICIOUS! And dessert was chocolate tres leche and a coconut flan - both full of flavor and delightfully presented. Our waiter, Dowd (sp?), was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
