    I had the grilled octopus special for an appetizer. It was a huge portion flavored with hot pepper and onions. Followed that up with a perfectly roasted whole branzino and lobster mac'n'cheese. My 11 year-old daughter described her bowl of clam chowder as "beautiful" and had fish'n'chips that melted in her mouth.

    Every time we go there, it is very cold. Even in the summer. The shrimp arrabiatta appetizer used to be much bigger, but now it's smaller and still the same price. The stuffed flounder and any salmon dish is excellent. They can spice it up or just plain broil it with lemon and it tastes great. Nice piece of fish. Wait staff is very good.

    Probably one of the best seafood dinners I have had. I brought my girlfriend for her birthday. The waitress made our night perfect. She was very friendly and gave us good suggestions on the food, even though I am sure the entire menu is delicious. Kudos to the chef and the owner of this gem. I will be returning to this restaurant soon.

    We went to P.F. Market for the first time last Saturday. The food was outstanding and the menu was terrific. The only reason why I gave it four stars is that it is a bit small and I would prefer not to sit too close to others. Service was terrific. Despite the small space I still think it was a great dinner and we are already making plans to go back again.

    We have seen crowds here for some time, and with all the good reviews, finally decided to give it a try. We arrived on time for our reservation. After the hostess proceeded to seat 3 other parties who arrived after us, we nearly left. We finally were seated downstairs, next to the kitchen. The service is actually very attentive, if a bit frenetic. But the food really underwhelming. Bread brought to the table is STALE. That's a first. Had an okay order of calamari. Oysters were excellent. Seafood medley overlooked, rendered all the seafood rubbery... A simple grilled halibut would have been great, except also overcooked and dried out. Really such a shame. The side of lobster Mac and cheese was pretty good but no reason to make a trip.

    Great eats at this cozy restaurant. The crowd and noise level began about half way through our dinner that began at 6pm. Understandably so...it's a hot spot and great for foodies. Ask to be seated upstairs..it's a tad less noisy.

    I had read a review in the NYT in December and had held onto it until now. Boy, was I glad I did. The 35 minute drive was well worth. The menu was extensive, and the food was great. The portions were beyond generous. I eat a lot of seafood and place this as my new favorite in Central/Northern NJ. It was my first visit, but it certainly will not have been my last.

    As usual, PF Market served up a great dinner. The polenta encrusted halibut was excellent as was the shrimp Parmesan. They really make a tasty shrimp Parmesan. Although it is a common dish, it is uncommonly good here. Definitely worth a try if you don't see a special you like. The specials are always tasty!

    Decided to go out for an early "date night" on Friday night and we were blown away...valet parking is perfect to start the experience . We had mussels with red sauce for the app and scallops and tuna entrees...everything was great with service and entire meal... no time for dessert since we had our 10 month old with us...cool 2nd floor with a bar even though it's "byob"....will definitely be back!!!

    I have been a few times and always enjoyed my meals. They have a large menu, and some very good dishes, this past visit, my friend and I ordered all apps and had my best meal yet. I tend to prefer meals where I can try many items, so this way of ordering is generally my preference. We started with wonderful West Coast Hood oysters, both had very good salads, 1 Greek and 1 Arugula, and split the grilled octopus with peppers and potatoes, and the mussels in white sauce. The octopus was perfect and fresh, and the preparation was unique and tasty. The mussels in white were perfect, great mild mussels in a yummy traditional white sauce. We closed the place out, and never once did I feel like they were trying to get us off the table.

    When we got there, the place was a little over 1/2 full. As time passed, the place filled up and it was very, very noisy. The tables are kind of tight too. You could clearly hear the conversations of people next to you, behind you. It was also a bit more expensive than we thought it was going to be. One soda, one salad, one appetizer, 2 entrees, no dessert was $ 92.00. Might go back, might not, only if I'm craving fresh seafood.
