    It was a great restaurant. We were celebrating an anniversary. The food was excellent. Only thing bad was that we looked at the menu on-line and it was a different menu in the restaurant. Looking forward to appetizers and drinks on the terrace.

    Carlucci's Waterfront is one of the most amazing dining experiences I've known! Outside is beautiful and overlooks the Rancocas River... inside is also set-up nice with ample seating. The service is attentive and the food is incredible... highly recommend the Shrimp & Salmon Amafia....

    My coworkers and I recently had lunch outside on the deck to celebrate two birthdays. The stone deck was gorgeous and the view of the Rancocas creek was beautiful. The wait staff was so friendly and made the birthday celebration memorable. On top of wonderful experience of outside dining, the food was delicious. It was a very relaxing lunch and we all talked about coming back with our families.

  • A Melancholy Monday

    Dined on 8/11/2014
    This was a nice place to visit, the ambiance was subtle and quiet. I ordered the prime rib ($40 on the menu) and asked for it to be well-done. It was still pink when it reached me, but I didn't say anything since I was meeting someone here for dinner, and our waiter's personality was very stringent. The only pleasant person in the whole place seemed to be the owner, everyone else I came across or noticed seemed to be in a state of melancholy. Perhaps the mood was related to it being a Monday. I would have to try here again in order to make a better assessment.

    Dined on 8/10/2014
    Sunday night. There was a large party that took precedence over regular diners. Most of the eait staff was working the party and only occaisionally came back to the dining room to check on guests. We sat at our table at 6:05pm. Drinks came out quickly. A half hour later we had appetizers. And then the staff disappeared. Salad did not arrive until 7:30. And dinner only after we complained, by 8:15 -2 hrs after we arrived. They comped us dessert which at that point we didnt even want because we were so tired from sitting in chairs not meant for three hours of sitting. By 9pm we were out. I don't blame the waiter he was very nice - the fault goes to management for making the large group the priority. This place is not cheap. We won't be back.

    Food was great, service was so so. We shouldn't have sat for over 5 minutes after he (bob) asked what we wanted to drink. I had to run to the bathroom and I asked my date to make him stay of he showed up while I was gone. This was after waiting 5 minutes already. I came back and he walked away to grab a check from another table. He did come right back but thatnqas rude. After that he was better but I was so close to leaving. We didn't because we already drove a half hour to get there. Again for was great but you experiance could have been better with better service.

    Food was mediocre. I order Chilean Sea Bass, it was a very small piece, there was a part of it that was uncooked, it came with a lot of rice smothered in butter - heart attack on a plate. The best thing was the view, then the bugs started coming and they did not put the tiki lights on until it started to get dark, - it might have kept some of the bugs away if they put them on sooner.No reason to go back except for drinks outside.

    It was a nice night and we enjoyed being outside under the canopy. We ordered from the 3 course for $25 menu (comes with a glass of wine which was a nice surprise) . The options were good but the dinners were underwhelming; average, at best. It appeared that little care was given in preparation or presentation because it was the "'special". Crab cake was tasty but very odd texture. Broiled tilapia looked bland and boiled The desserts were very small portions and the tiramisu was watery and left uneaten. Wait staff did their job and nothing more. . It was my first time there and I would not go back.

    Went for Farm to Fork. I wasn't knocked out by the menu choices. The selections could have been better. Calamity a little chewy, tomatoes in salads ( should :) ave been jerseys) were a little too ripe. The fish dishes were nice. I enjoyed the sea bass and my son's tilapia and fruit salsa were very good. The gnocchi was not so nice. Tiramisu was less than average. Great coffee! The outside seating a must! Beautiful!

    Sitting outside by the water was beautiful. The breeze on a summers evening was perfect for a birthday celebration. My children loved their meals, generous portions, but my husband and I were both less than enthused with our selections. The vodka sauce tasted more like Spaghettios than any vodka sauce I have ever had. Service was excellent and the staff was great with the kids, yet still elegant for a birthday dinner.

    Beautiful setting and lovely decor - smashing outdoor patio area. The drinks and appetizers were excellent and this restaurant offers good value. We were not thrilled with entrees - fried fish platter - too heavily breaded -tasted frozen and certainly not fresh... seafood cannelloni was large very heavy thick pasta - not light or delicate... do not recommend - seemed as if cheese inside was shredded and not melted?? Would go back but would try something else since setting is so lovely. Maybe they could get a chef who could up the calibre of food from to a more high-end italian - the setting deserves it! For example, restaurants like Radicchio cafe in old city and Arugula in Huntingdon valley - now THOSE TWO - know how to do italian.

    More a banquet/special occasion place that makes a living on the gorgeous riverside setting. Ate outside, and with the great weather we had it was awesome. They have tents up for shade which was perfect. Food was just OK, but cost for lunch wasn't too bad for this kind of place, but maybe a little high given the food quality. Service was a little inconsistent but friendly with our big group (11). There were a few speed boats on the river which broke the peace of the idyllic setting occasionally. Not Carlucci's fault but good to know if this would bother you. It didn't bother us.

    We wanted a lunch where we could talk, table cloths, and a pleasing view. This is not the Hudson River, but a local cedar-water stream, flowing past the windows. Our view of the water was direct. The atmosphere inside was quiet and refreshing. The waiter, allowed us time to make our selections but was not attentive to replenishing utensils after the meal. The food was superb! The pasta noodles were rich in color and delicate in taste. The prefix menu selections varied and substantial. We enjoyed all the selections we ordered, and left delighted. We will return and enjoy dinner. The menu has a varied selection and an opportunity to experience other choices would be entertaining. Perhaps, in the evening when the day's have cooled. Excellent

    Good evening, me and my wife visit Carlucci's on June 28th for our 6 year anniversary . The outdoor scenery was pleasant but the inside dining was quite vibrant and pleasant . Me and my wife reserved outdoor seating with a great view of the river for 7:15 in the evening. It was spectacular from the view to the waitress Ms. Shelby to the food and wine list. We give this place a 10 and it will be on our to do list more often .

    My family and I have been going to Carlucci's for years. The service and food is always great. In fact my husband and I got married here almost 10 years ago. It's a great place for special events if your looking for a great view with a low key time. I haven't tried the outdoor deck yet but there is no need with the beautiful view from the inside. If you do plan on outdoor dining definitely make a reservation and be prepare to wait on busy evenings. On our latest visit on Father's Day the deck was packed and several parties waiting.

    We went for Father's Day. The hostess was amazing, the food was great, the view was perfect. My only issue was that the waiter was not attentive and very curt. Almost bordering on rude. I'm sure he was just busy, but everyone else that worked there was super nice and attentive. Our waiter's attitude and disappearing act put a damper on our outing. I'd go there again because the food (and view) was good, I just hope I get another waiter. I plan on going a few more times this summer. Hopefully I get another waiter. All in all good place to try.

We'd go there again with the family or for a quiet dinner for two. Highly recommend it!
