Once again- fantastic!This is by far our favorite restaurant! We live in Toms River, but drive to Asbury park just to go to Brando's for all of our special occasions. I have had something different every time, and have no complaints about anything!! When you go, make sure you request Chris Dolan as your waiter- he is great- knows the menu, is very attentive, and has a great sense of humor. Once again, I highly recommend Brando's!!!6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMa neighborhood gemOutstanding food...the service was great but was a bit slow at the end of the meal when there were a lot of guests. The food is definitely worth going back for6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. WonderfulGreat food and service. Wonderful find.

Would highly recommend Brando's - ambience was beautiful - service great - food excellent -
Look forward to going back again real soon!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMhad a great dinner with wifehad a great dinner with wife and friends. sunday gravy and fra diavolo are best in class. insalata calabrese is awesome. even the bread was good. and the desserts are over the top. the fried tortoni is nothing like you've ever had. and the people at the next table were raving about the new york cheesecake. and the owner steve proudly visits the tables to make sure his customers are satisfied. that says alot about a restaurant. and the best part is that there are too many tempting menu choices--especially the appetizers. you can't try them all in one night. can't wait to go back for the sliders--hanger beef and lobster sliders are both in my future. would highly recommend to all.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining at Brando'sAlways a varied menu with excellent quality food and presentation. Their scallop dinner is a must to try. You though you've had great scallops in the past until you've had them at Brando's. No comparison! From drinks (great bar by the way) to appetizers, to main course and dessert, everything was top notch, as was the staff who were attentive and personable. We are repeat customers and will continue to be so. A great place for unsurpassed food and atmosphere!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Dinner ExperienceWe came to Brando's to celebrate my uncle's 80th birthday. Food and Sevice were top-notch as usual. Had the 36 oz. rib-eye; it was seasoned and cooked to perfection. My uncle was so happy, and is talking about it. Thanks Steve and company!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fabulous!!We eat at Brando's quite often and have NEVER been disappointed. The severs are all wonderful and the food and ambience is fantastic!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time But Not The Last!From start to finish my dining experience was very, very enjoyable. Our waitress Regina was EXCELLENT to say the least. She was friendly, knowledgeable, informative and her personality was terrific!!! All of our courses were delicious not to mention the desserts which were amazing as well. Drinks and coffees were above par too.
I was there with my wife and teenage children to celebrate a birthday and have to say everything was just PERFECT!!!!!!
As matter of fact my wife made the comment we had just found our new restaurant as the owner personally came to our table to make sure our experience was enjoyable.
First time however diffidently not our last5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!Have been wanting to get to Brando's for a while, but either timing wasn't right or there were no weekend reservations available. Decided to try on a weeknight. Menu was more than expected, lots of options for every taste, all sounding so inviting. Decided on Pappardelle Tuscana and Pork Chop Brando--both outstanding--after the Beggars Purse appetizer, which was delicious! Of course, had to indulge in dessert--Fried Tortoni and Cannoli...with a Bailey's & coffee to top it off. Server was great, not overly attentive (which can be annoying when you're trying to enjoy your dinner), just the right amount of attention! I'm sure it would be worth the wait for a weekend reservation, but the food tastes just as good on a weeknight.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again- excellent!This was our fourth trip to Brando's. And for the fourth time, we were thoroughly impressed! The service, the food, everything was top notch. I have tried something different everytime, and every mean I have had has been fantastic. My wife swears by the "Sunday Gravy," saying it tastes just like her Nona's gravy growing up. That is high praise. We have already recommended Brando's to several friends and co-workers, and everyone that has gone has gone back multiple times. Steve is a great guy, comes to say hello to every table, and Chris Dolan and Dylan Herbert made our experience that much better!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Great !!I have been a customer since it was Carmine's.............always loved it then and now.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulFood was excellent and service impeccable. Would highly recommend Brandos for dinner, Pasta was cooked al dente and the fresh mozarella was excellent, tasted like burrata.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!From the professional service to the freshest and delectable entrees, Brando's did not disappoint! Dry aged steak was perfect! We will return5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent PlaceA friend had recommended Brando's to us. I went with my husband and my adult son. To say the least, I was very impressed.
The staff was wonderful. Our waiter Chris was very professional and very knowledgeable. Food can be adjusted to taste.
We all had the seafood. All very fresh and delicious. Dessert was fried tortoni, soooo delicious. Some reviews said it was pricey but I disagree. If you dine out you will know quality food and this is a quality place. Everything was exceptional and I would recommend it to family and friends. In fact, my family and I can't wait to go back.
