  • "We go to this Resturant often. It's a great go to place. We always get great food for a reasonably priced. Sometimes they serve us too fast."

  • "Gusto is a local restaurant to me and as a result we frequently visit. It is a wonderful pace with great food and drink. They showcase multiple micro draft beers along with the usual suspects and an extensive wine list too. As for the food, I don't recall ever having a meal I did not enjoy. My highlights: Crabcakes - App Fillet Mignon Tips - App Strawberry Salad - Entrée Burger (Any) - Entrée Ribs - Entrée Bread Pudding - Dessert Oven Baked Cookie - Dessert Bon Appetit"

  • "Wow! Great place - we've passed this place for years, decided to try it finally. Really comfortable, nice decor. Would absolutely go back for the hummus appetizer - has a great creamy texture that we don't often find. Entree selection was good, had chicken and especially enjoyed the risotto.wine selection better than most restaurants in this class, we felt. Service was, well, perfect. Can't ask for more than that!"

  • "Gusto is excellent. My wife and I come here often and have never had a less than wonderful experience. Highly recommend chatting with one of the bartenders and let them know what you like in a drink. They have excellent recommendations and can make you something good custom to your pallet."

  • "Duck was not crispy at all, very mushy. Worst duck I ever had. Steak had no flavor. Nothing special, and did not worth for the price at all. I could cook much better. The best part was a peach cocktail."

  • "Gusto is truly one of the areas best restaurants. While Central NJ is not known for its cuisine, Gusto provides outstanding food and service in a relaxed, contemporary, and comfortable atmosphere. My wife and I have been looking for a great restaurant in the area since we moved to the area - we found it. Some of the better food in the area without having to cross the Hudson. Keep it up, guys!"

  • "The appetizer menu was chocked with great selections, Fried oysters, filet mignon tips to name a couple. One of my favorite wines Cake Bread Chardonnay was on the list and that was a deal maker."

  • "The service was impeccable. The restaurant was modern and clean. The food was hot and nicely presented. The seafood appetizer was very good. The kale salad had an interesting flavor combination. The brie and Portobello mushroom pizza was tasty, but had too much thick cheese for my taste. The menu held a nice variety of options. The creme brulee trio for dessert was very good. While I dined inside, the outdoor seating was cute but set against a noisy highway. Plenty of parking in adjacent lot."

  • "Made a reservation for 4 people on Sunday and had to increase to 5 people an hour before reservation. I called the restaurant directly and the hostess was very accommodating making the change fir me. We arrived early and they sat us right away because they had a table available. Great service and good food. Manager came by table to ask about our meal. Would recommend to others and definitely go back. "

  • "We dined during the Kentucky Derby (not on purpose) so it was a little noisy in the restaurant, but other than that it was a nice evening. The beer list was fairly extensive, the menu was diverse(albeit the escargot was doused in too much garlic) and the service was adequate. I would go back to Gusto."

  • "We have been to Gusto s several times but the quality of the food has gone downhill. The fried calamari was extremely salty and the 5 cheese pizza was greasy and soggy. My son's tuna was raw and undercooked. My short ribs were very fatty and I left over half the meal. For the price we paid.. The meal was vey disappointing. Our waitress gave us good service. I doubt we will return to gustos ."

The freshness and flavors are extraordinary, along with the great service and attention to details, these are the things that keep us coming back."

  • "Service is excellent. Salads are large and fresh, can easily be shared between two people. Entrees are served hot, more than adequate portions and well seasoned side dishes. Didn't have room for dessert this time around. Nice selection of draft and micro brews and a broad cross sections of wines available by the glass. Can't go wrong whether burgers and pizza or more substantial entrees of fish, chicken and short ribs."

  • "Our waiter was absolutely wonderful. He was able to give well detail descriptions on how the food would be prepared,a nd he made excellent recommendations. The food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the Halibut and it was cooked to perfection. The sauce that was on the Halibut was a excellent choice to compliment the dish."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The quality of the food (especially the Fillet Mignon spears and the Halibut) was incredible. The facility is very clean. The service was fantastic. As I told the manger, the gentleman that waited on us ‘Evan' was superior. We (my family and I) dine there ~ once a month. The next time I am there, I am specifically requesting a table that Evan is working. The food is great, the chef even better. The best restaurant in East Brunswick - hands down. I place it above the restaurant 'circuit' in New Brunswick - the food and service is that good."

  • "A great night, stuffed lobster cooked to perfection, very little filler. Very sweet meat on top of a rice with spinach which was very light and was the perfect accompaniment. My fiancée had the lamb chops also cooked perfectly. We finished with a white chocolate mousse which we shared. Waitress was very attentive and suggested our beverages which went well our meal. Great dinner"

  • "I had just moved to the area with my girlfriend and we decided to give Gusto a try, the food was so good the first time that i decided to bring her back there for Valentines Day a week later. Food is very good, as well as the service. You cant beat the selection of beers/wine that they offer..more high end. I consider the price very reasonable for the quality of food, and the service seems to match the food perfectly. Will come back again and again."

  • "My boyfriend and I have not been here in years since the new owners took over. We walked in and were greeted by the hostesses who were all very nice, Bekah, Rebecca and Melissa. Our server was Dan who was great and very attentive. I am so glad that we took our chances and went back. I have to say this is the best non chain restaurant there is in East Brunswick! We started off with the Crab Stuffed Diver Scallops as a app.I had a KANE beer and my boyfriend had the espresso martini- AMAZING!!! My boyfriend got the Crab Crusted Top Sirloin Steak which was so tender and full of flavor! I got a special which was the rainbow trout. Also very very good! Will be going back real soon!!!"
