We've been eating at D & J Bistro for about five years. We also frequent other French restaurants around the Chicago area. First of all we think that D & J is the best traditional French Bistro in the Chicago suburbs, and next, we can tell you that the Escargot is superb! You have to eat it with their delicious... More

Met friends for dinner here. Extensive wine selection to start with at the bar. Lots of choice on menu as well, both the specials as well as the regular menu. Food was tasty and service was good.

My wife and I have been going to D&J on a regular basis for well over ten years. Stephane and Christele will cater to your every need. The food and service are fantastic! Chef Masato is incredible! And the whole staff is so very friendly. Do not miss this suburban gem!

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.

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.
