This French Bistro is out-of-this-world good. Everything I have ever eaten here has been freshly-prepared and utterly delicious. Unfortunately, all this quality comes at a price. I wish I was rich enough to eat here every day!

Service couldn't have better and atmosphere was truly Parisian. Rainbow trout, chicken, and steaks were excellent. Onion soup was among the best I ever had. Desserts were pricy for what you got. Cost $70-90 plus drinks and tip. Well worth the experience.

We've been enjoying D&J for decades. The food is always predictably great. The service is warm and friendly, and the usual faces (Stephan, etc.) are always a pleasure. Interesting wine list and generally, one of the best restaurants in the area.

Sorry but the prices are way overpriced for small portions. Drinks are ok . There are other places way better to go to .

The owner came out and greeted everyone throughout the meal. The food was amazing and prices weren't too high. Very nice place for a special event or just good food.

Liked the food but didn't think it was great. Cute place. If it's really busy, you can eat in the bar area. Back there is also a private dining area. Service was just ok. Had to wait for bread and water refills - and a long time for soda refill as well.

Stopped by on a week night. The menu provided a wide range of choices including a fixed 3 course meal. I tried the braised rabbit. It was excellent. Also the squash soup was great. Will bring my wife next time. A bit pricy but an excellent meal.

My husband and I went for lunch on his birthday and had a wonderful meal. The veal cheeks appetizer was fabulous. We each has a couple glasses of different wine as they offer a wide by the glass selection. We had seafood risotto and a crab and shrimp cake, but were very good. Service was excellent.

Don't let the non-descript strip mall sway you because hidden inside is gem. It is a cute French bistro run by real french people. The inside takes you to a French bistro in Paris. The food is very good, we even bring our 12 year old daughter and she enjoys the restaurant an the food as much as we do.... More
