Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I dine at Chef Freddy's regularly. Food and service is consistently excellent."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Fine dining in Morristown! Started with scallops that were cooked perfectly. My porkshop was delicious, as were the side dishes on the plate. I like that it's BYOB since it's high end dining and you can bring your own wine and not break the bank! Free parking at the Hyatt across the street is also a nice touch!"

  • "My Dad was in the restaurant business so I look for thing most people don't notice. The wait staff were top notch, picked up plates and silverware after each course, they were personable and professional and did not rush us. One of them went to the liquor store next store to help my friend chose a bottle of wine!! The good was fabulous and the presentation was beautiful. We had calamari and lobster ravioli for appetizers, stuffed pork chop and mixed grill for entrees and chocolate mousse and bread pudding for dessert everything was just delicious and we couldn't help eye the other plates that passed by already picked what I will have next time! Chef Fredy came out to very warmly greet everyone. From bread to coffee **** Excellent"

  • "The service was attentive but not overbearing and struck the perfect balance. Everything on the menu looked so good, it was difficult choosing what to get, but I ended up ordering the steak special and it was phenomenal, as well was the calamari appetizer. The fact that it's BYO is great because they offer a 5-star meal without forcing you to pay for overpriced drinks in-house."

  • "The food and service at this romantic establishment are excellent. Interesting menu with well presented food. I had the mixed grill which included bison, andouille sausage and bacon wrapped chicken. Everything was seasoned perfectly and the meats were tender and juicy. There were grilled sweet potatoes under the meats and a smoky sauce to accompany the bison...terrific. My boyfriend is a foodie and he loved his venison. We brought our own bottle of Pinot noir which I loved!"

  • "I count on these reviews and frankly have rarely written one. We went to Tim Shafers many years ago with some frequency and recall outstanding meals. This visit was much less memorable. Food was not bad, just not memorable. Monkfish was "fishy", other dishes too "saucy". Restaurant is in serious need of a facelift. Very tired setting .... Free parking at the Hyatt is a nice touch"

  • "My husband and I went for dinner on anniversary. We sat outside, which was nice but a little congested around sidewalk and some noisy traffic. We ordered off of Prix Fix menu, and it was very good. Love the BYOB. Parking is somewhat inconvenient, but not too bad."

  • "We had a great evening out as a couple. Staff was attentive and helpful without being overbearing. Food was very tasty, would definitely come back."

  • "My husband and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. We hadn't been to Tim Shafer's (now Chef Fredy's Table) in a few years. We will not make that mistake again. The service was impeccable. The food delicious. My husband had the mixed grill and I had the sea bass special. Both amazing. The prices are on the high side, but definitely not eye popping for the quality and preparation. Another plus - it is a BYO."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Wonderful restaurant, excellent food, BYOB, staff was friendly, professional and perfect! The zucchini flowers appetizer was delicious and different. The sauce around them was delicious with a little kick! Will definitely be back!"

  • "We went here for my husband and sons birthdays. I am a vegetarian and as per usual there was no vegetarian entree on the menu. I had a good salad to start the iceberg lettuce wedge with blue cheese dressing (no bacon) and wild mushroom ravioli app as my entree. My DH had tuna which he said was good. My son's girlfriend had the St. Peter 's fish and my son had one of the specials. Everyone said their food was good. My son was was nicely comped a dessert for his Birthday. The decor is a bit dated but overall a nice meal."

  • "We always count on this restaurant for a great dining experience. I am glad to say that Chef Freddy and the staff have even improved on this experience with their new menu. We never hesitate to bring individuals important to us there, as we did last Saturday night. My wife had a fantastic Monk Fish special and they accommodated me with my favorite Tim Schaffer original, Short Ribs (not on the new menu). The service was particularly attentive, elegant and on par with that found in Europe or in fine dining establishments in NYC. Chef Freddy himself visited the patrons to make sure everyone was satisfied. That's very rare these days. If you want a friendly superior dining experience and good value, don't hesitate to visit with Chef Freddy."

  • "I knew Tim and enjoyed his restaurant but it has been Fredy's and Nestor's for a long time and the name change shouldn't discourage anyone from coming. The best decision we made was about 18 months ago when we decided that we should stop coming here just for special occasions and just eat with Fredy and Nestor more often- we're never disappointed. A great seafood meal just before July 4th ; starting off with salads ( the blue cheese wedge was perfect) and then red snapper and soft shell crabs and shared a chocolate- peanut butter tart. Dining here is truly a consistent pleasure"

  • "We started with the mushroom ravioli. It was delicious in a nice cream sauce. I had the duck as an entree. It was overcooked and the sweet sauce that was served with it did not complement the flavor of the duck. My husband had the pork chop. It too was overcooked and tough."

  • "I'd heard so many good things about this restaurant, and was excited to be there. It seems they have the infrastructure down for great food, but sadly don't deliver it consistently. The service made us feel well-tended, though the waiter really should write down orders if he needs to come back two times to ask again what we ordered. The appetizers were astonishing. The entrees were tender and completely bland. For both of us. How could this happen?? Only one of us ordered dessert, but they brought dessert for two, which was very sweet of them. Dessert was very good, but not mindblowing. In order to command the prices on their menu, they really should step up their game."

  • "went to 5 restaurants during restaurant wk. in Mo-town. amazing how restaurants either don't really care or think little of the service their staff give to the dining experience but Tim shafer's attn is first class. I'm not discriminatory but all wait staff are men, they don't clutter your table with all the utensils but change them out with each course even if you didn't use them. you fine diners know what I'm talking about. I'm not snooty but there are many places where I'm never sure if I should keep utensils aside or place on plate. food was tasty and well prepared. will definitely return."

We had a variety of appetizers, main dishes and deserts. Everything met what everyone ordered to a tee. The food was impeccably prepared and presented. Everyone was extremely pleased with the afternoon."

  • "My husband and I snuck in a date night Saturday night and re-visited an old favorite. The food was still fabulous and the staff was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. There was one item on the menu that I was interested in but was afraid that it contained an ingredients to which I was allergic. The waiter went to confirm whether it contained the ingredients. Rather than ask me to choose another entree, Chef Freddy came out and made a few suggestions on how he could modify the dish to fit my restrictions. They all sounded delicious, and I truly appreciated their dedication to making the customer happy!!"
