Simply the best in Delray

I have never had a disappointing meal and it definitely compares favorably with other top artisan restaurants in the south florida area, but is my favorite in Delray when I visit.

I have been visiting J and J and Delray for years and it is always amazing. I have never had a disappointing meal and it definitely compares favorably with other top artisan restaurants in the south florida area, but is my favorite in Delray when I visit. Congratulations to the chef and staff for their incredible creations.

If you want the absolute best meal in Delray, this is the place to go. There isn't anything on the menu you're going to make at home, let alone get anywhere else, and the portions won't allow room for Kilwins! The Grouper specials are typically my favorite. Tina and John have it dialed in. Make a reservation for the high... More

We live in Delray and have been going here sporadically but recently have made this our "go to" place for seafood. We've been in 3x in the last month. The array of appetizers are very good. I love the oysters on the 1/2 shell, selection always good; baked oysters and the pan fried oysters (yea corn meal very light!) or... More

This is a simple place, bar like, but the food is good. It is not a fancy place, but the food is good at a good price close to the happening street in Delray Beack.

We called late in the afternoon so we had to take a late dinner time, but it was worth the wait. The restaurant is very small so make your reservations well in advance. The service was very good and the food was even better. We had the steamed little neck clams and the mussels for an appetizer. Our sons had... More

You could easily walk past this and miss it. I would be sad for you. It's simply amazing. Fresh and innovative. Service is attentive. Best meal we had on the Atlantic Coast.

How is it that a restaurant that has been in business for the past 15 years stayed largely hidden? J and J differs from nearly every restaurant on Atlantic Avenue. First, the restaurant itself is relatively narrow and is easy to miss. Secondly, they don’t take reservations on Open Table. Had it not been for Trip Advisor we likely would... More

When we first arrived for dinner we were the only ones in the place. That did not last long as it filled up quickly. The seafood was good and there were a lot of choices from the bar. The place we stayed recommended the restaurant and provided a discount. The wait staff did not scoff at the discount card. Very... More

Cute storefront restaurant with limited seating. I started with middle neck clams, very fresh. For entrees, I had the Sautéed Crab Cake with saffron lemon aioli, fruit salsa, lettuce, and tomato on a choice of herb tortilla or fresh bun. It came with crispy French fries. The crab cake was very good, without any fillers. My wife ordered the roasted... More

We found this little gem of a restaurant by mistake. For lunch the waiter was very attentive and the food outstanding. The Lobster Mac and Cheese with Truffle Oil appetizer was a meal unto itself. The Halibut on Risotto was perfectly seasoned an cooked to perfection, theMahi Wrap was wrapped with a surprisingly tasty combination of greens and was dressed... More
