This is one of my favorite area restaurants. Mary, the owner and chef is well known in these parts. Although, I've never used her catering, I am sure it is fabulous. I miss the old decor from the restaurant several years ago, bit the new place (a few years old now) is also beautiful. Great food... read more

This place has been a staple in the area for decades. Why? Great food, good service, nice atmosphere....the menu is a bit limited, but I've never had a bad meal here. Its packed on weekends, and theres a reason - its a nice, dependable place to eat or meet for a drink.

I read some of the reviews here and perhaps didn't expect it to be up to much, especially on Valentines night and on my own. I was pleasantly surprised however. The decor was nice and had quite a European feel to the layout rather than the standard tables and banquets that the Americans go in for. I had the Mediterranean... More

Food was OK - lunch menu a bit limited. We stopped mid-afternoon, and when I asked about the more extended menu was told that was the dinner menu. The server came back and told me if I wanted something off that menu they would be happy to reheat something. I opted for a burger . . .

The only positive experience about this restaurant was our waiter. I dined with three friends and none of us were impressed with our food. On top of being substandard it was very over priced. I ordered the Steak Diane medium rare and it came out rare/tartare. My other friend ordered it as well, and she was unhappy with how hers... More

Rediscovered DJB while visiting the NAIAS. What a great find, close to our hotel (Baronette Renaissance). Neighborhood feel, not pretentious. Quite a mix of ages, from 20s to 80s. We sat in the heated patio, very comfortable. Place is snug, which makes it a bit noisy, but that was fine with us. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was very... More

Great spot for a group meal--something for everyone and a helpful and accommodating staff. Classic American steakhouse--high quality ingredients and loads of choices--and all at a reasonable cost.

I am a fan of independent restaurants over chains. I love DJB because the menu is imaginative the the food is really good. We always have great service and the staff is very knowledgable regarding the menu and wine offerings. My favorite is the black bean chili that has a little kick to its and the Mediterranean plank. Specials are... More
