After reading the reviews I was excited to try DJ's Bistro. Honestly, I respectively disagree with some of the other reviews being the best German Food in the Bay Area. Maybe its the best in Concord...but NOT in the Bay Area. For authentic German food, I suggest the German restaurants located in San Francisco, Alameda, Sunnyvale or San Jose. My... More

Authentic German restaurant. Lot's of schnitzel,great service Who would have thought that the best central European restaurant in the bay area would be hidden in an obscure strip mall in Concord?

I adore the Bavarian Chicken, which is the best schnitzel I've had anywhere in the world, including Prague and Vienna. The Pork Schnitzel isn't far behind it. The Goulash, served with dumplings if you request them (I always do because they soak up gravy so beautifully), is another dish that stands out as splendidly flavorful, made with high quality beef...

Authentic German restaurant. Lot's of schnitzel. Some nods to the Czech and Hungarians with Goulash and other dishes. This extends to the beers as well. Good German and Czech beer with no trace of IPA to be seen. That was very pleasant. Quality was good and value was excellent. Plan on taking leftovers home or split a plate between two... More

We go back to this restaurant repeatedly. We've taken friends and they have always enjoyed it. The food is quite good as is the service. The place is small, there are linen table cloths and the price can't be beat. Entrees at lunch range from $9.50-$12.50 and are slightly higher at dinner. My husband and I both love the Hungarian...

What a treat to find this place hidden in a strip mall. Had the jaeger schnitzel which is wiener schnitzel with a mushroom sauce (more like a delicious mushroom gravy) and it was off the charts delicious. I've been to Germany and Austria many times and this was as good as I've had there. The cabbage and spätzle that comes... More

Wow. If the label "neighborhood gem" is ever appropriate then it must to go this small, yet fabulous restaurant hidden away in a non description strip mall If you like Schnitzel then please come and try this. Had the single Jaegar Schnitzel which is a pretty hefty portion. If super hungry order the regular which includes 2 pieces of Schnitzel.... More

good go to place when im in the mood for euro style food, only wish they would pan fry instead of deep frying the schnitzels, staff always nice and polite, sometimes a little slow if your on lunch break, but worth it.
