“Excellent German-Czeck Food”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

This is an excellent small, casual restaurant with great food. We go for the quality of the food. The portions can be overwhelming for us, but we either split a meal or take half home to enjoy later. Everything we have had here; schnitzel, roast pork loin, duck, meatloaf, etc. has been excellent. The atmosphere is friendly and casual. It is tucked away from the street, but you will think you've made a discovery when you try it. Quality food at bargain prices.

“Fabulous as always!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I have been coming here for the past 15 years & it is still as great as ever. Valentine's Day was absolutely no exception!!! The atmosphere is a comfortable casual that is inviting to all and the food is superb!!! We take everyone here to introduce them to this little gem of a place hidden in the crux of an ugly strip mall!! Lol!! The D&J Bistro "family" are wonderful and very service oriented and quite frankly could not be more polite! Puts the kibosh on the notion of how their culture is thought to be. One of my "faves" whether it be with my hubby or friends. This is one of those places that shouldn't be missed BUT do be sure to make reservations, it's a tough one to get in on a weekend as it is very popular and quaint. The bar is also a great place to stop in for a drink and an easy bite!! Enjoy!

“Reservation not honored”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

The restaurant ignored us and another couple for 15 minutes while we stood waiting at the front. When we questioned staff in the back about it, we were rudely told to leave the restaurant by the aggressive bartender and the incredibly hostile waitress.

All we were expecting was an initial greeting and "we're a bit busy, but we'll be with you soon." Why bother making a reservation if a restaurant doesn't intend to honor it or even acknowledge the customer's arrival?

Valentine's dinner: ruined, thanks to DJ's Bistro.

“Food and Service is Wunderbar!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

I have eaten at DJ's Bistro for several years also, and it is always a JOY! Some of the BEST Home Made Comfort European Style Food I have had! My family is from Germany and when I feel a need to have my grandma and moms cooking...I come here and leave with a very full and happy stomach! I have had almost all their dishes from the roasted chicken to the Schnitzel and Hungarian Goulash and have had nothing but great food. And I always have to have their Spatzel! so good! And don't forget to get some apple strudel at the end.... excellent! But lets not forget all the good Biers they have on tap and in the bottle that go excellent with your meal. This is a perfect place to come especially when it is cold outside and you want a hearty home cooked meal with a big tall glass of bier...just warms you up inside and out! We have always had excellent service and the owner and his friendly staff has always made us feel very welcome! One of our favorite local restaurants!!

“Excellent food and great service”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Food was excellent and unique. Atmosphere was fun. Service was great. We had dinner here with friends while in the Bay area. Have never had this type of food before and was pleasantly surprised. Will return when in the area again.
