The restaurant is easily accessible from Manhattan via the Lincoln Tunnel. The room is beautiful and the waitstaff are all professional, experienced adults. The chef is a culinary genius/artist. Menu is extensive there’s something for every appetite. We’ve been here a number of times and we’ve always been very pleased. (If the restaurant were in Manhattan, it would be impossible to get a table. That’s how great it is.) Favorite dishes include crab and asparagus appetizer; seafood salad appetizer; shrimp fra diavolo; and the (World’s Greatest) pork chop. Really—don’t miss the pork chop.

I usually eat here for lunch but have been by for dinner recently. NJ is still at 35% dining capacity at the time of this writing, so I would say it was "active" but not too busy. We were seated in a side room next to a working fireplace on a raw March night - no complaints there!

Mixed green salad with gorgonzola was just right. We had the halibut special which was perfectly cooked and the grilled zucchini side was off the charts. Finished with ricotta cheese cake and a cappucino. Service was very attentive.

Best meal I've had since the pandemic hit!

This was our first time dining here, as we live out of town. The menu wasn't huge, but there was plenty of variety to suit any taste. We found the prices a little high, but the food was very tasty, and the portions well-sized. Service was very good.

I realize there are many challenges with restaurants theses days. But, the service was painfully slow. If not for the pandemic I would’ve complained. I had to Scottish salmon, it was terribly overcooked. However, the side of sautéed spinach was very good that was the person of prey and the carrots.

Hope there are better times coming.

This place is amazing. Great for casual, business, dating or even fun time with the ladies or gentlemen. Live entertainment on Wednesday and Saturday. Excellent wine selection, food and service was very good. Both indoor and outdoor dining was comfortable regardless of weather. Overall I haven't had a bad experience yet.

Visited Barelis with my boyfriend for NYE. I must commend the restaurant for following COVID protocols. Each table had a clear divider with a monogrammed B for Barelis which made us feel protected but not like we were sectioned off and missed. The wait staff was amazing. They were kind, personable and gave great recommendations. The pasta and steak we’d ordered was flavorful and seasonal cocktails were very very good. Def. will be back

We come here one to two times per year to meet with our long-term client. As always the service is impeccable. Whether you’re a frequent diner or occasional like us, you will be treated like family. The biscotti is home made. The oysters are amazing. Fish is so very fresh! Pasta is home made and phenomenal! Go go go !!
