Restaurant Review

Just Restaurant is a fine dining experience popular with diners who enjoy an upscale NYC vibe, and a well executed menu. It's a popular spot for millennials celebrating a special occassion, or for meeting up with friends, or even for a couples date night.

Located on Route 9 South at an inauspicious location behind the BP gas station, across Rt 9 from Shoprite. This upscale, fine dining restaurant is a "Hidden Gem" and not at all what you would expect from it's location.

The ambience is NYC chic with an attractive decor that gives off a contemporary feel with jewel tone lighting, a glass-in mirrored wall supporting wine bottles, red banquets, and a beautiful onyx bar.

Meals are served in attractive dinnerware with coverings to lock in the warmth before as it reaches your table.

The kitchen is under the direction of Executive chef Jonathan Vukusich who received his formal culinary training at culinary school in Pittsburgh, He later honed his culinary skills in the kitchens at a number of New Jersey country clubs

The dinner begins on a positive note with a serving of their tasty signature pretzel bread and honey-dijon butter.

The wait staff is friendly, professional, and attentive.

Just Restaurant is not recommended for children.

Justin Restaurant is open seven days/week.
Monday    - Thursday, 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm. Friday    & Saturday, 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm,    and Sunday    4:30 pm - 9:30 pm
