It was an unfortunate beginning as there were several very loud and obnoxious tables surrounding us celebrating birthdays. As I know we went out on a holiday, and it was expected, our family found it to be overwhelming. However, our waiter Chris was amazing at servicing our table and easing our bothered emotions. The food was second to none, and made the whole experience worth it.
Dined on a Saturday night. The scampi appetizer was very good. Veal Napoleon and Rigitoni Bolognese were excellent. Fried Tortoni for desert is the best. Service was good.
This was the most delicious meal we have had by far in this area. The polenta and mushrooms and the linguine Sinatra were both beyond compare! For appetizers we had the clams with red sauce... equally exquisite! And finally, there are no words adequate to describe the pistachio ice cream pie for dessert...LOVE
Veal Milanese was superb! Scrumptious! Best my better half ever had!
Chilean sea bass was delicious!
Bread basket with condiments was phenomenal! We ate too much we had to bring half our meals home!
Will return soon!
The Fried Calamari was a bit chewy and defiantly was not fresh. Our meals however were great! The pork chop Brando was amazing and the orrechiette pasta was delicious!
We had a business meeting and it was way too loud. I won’t be able to have any more meetings at Brando’s since there isn’t a private room.
Food and Service was wonderful. A must try at the Jersey Shore
Went to Brabdo's to celebrate both my and my husbands birthdays, along with our daughter and her boyfriend. The service was great and the food was wonderful as always.
Have been to Brando's many times and never been disappointed.
Walked in at 3pm on Sunday when doors opened. Reservation for 4 adults-first visit-recommended by a friend. Floors had just been mopped and slight smell of bleach, which is a good thing to see, esp. during flu season... Warm, cozy, clean, nice staff-owner on premises. Attentive waiter. Brick oven pizza was outstanding. 'Sunday gravy special' is the way to go. Meatball, sausage, a pork rib beef and mommas gravy...very good-old school!
Food was great and service was excellent. Made reservations and sat immediately. Dining room was separate from the bar so it was nice and quiet. Also I put into open table that it was my boyfriends birthday and our table was decorated specifically for his birthday; Our server also knew it was his birthday. Complimentary Valet parking on the weekends was amazing and much needed due to the bad weather that day. 100% would go again.
Everything was great, great food, nice portions ,zero problems,zero complaints, I’ll be back for more
The food and service and Brando's is fabulous! I keep telling myself " we have to come here more often "
The food and service were very good. Prices were more like a BYOB, a bit high. They serve alcohol.
Great food , great service. Our meal was wonderful from start to finish. Everyone in our party enjoyed every part of the meal. The service is top notch and the ambiance is really nice. Just be sure to make a reservation.
Delicious food, wonderful service!!
Truly enjoyed our dinner at Brando’s! Food was exceptional. Dylan, our waiter, was friendly and attentive. Although the dinner was expensive, it was truly worth every cent!
Brandos is always top notch food. Great for a date night or a group birthday celebration. The food is phenomenal the service is upscale but very helpful and they have great wine and cocktails.
I always order the hanger steak and as usual it was perfect. In fact all the dishes ordered were perfect from the sea bass to the 35 day dry aged rib eye. The Tuscan wings are an interesting twist on wings but very good and if you like chocolate then the chocolate mouse is just amazing...... absolutely amazing you have to try it!
My one gripe.... I know the day wasn’t great however on Christmas Eve we went to diner at another place and on our way home I wanted to stop and get some of their chocolate mouse for my wife. I called around 5 and asked if I could pick up an order to go. The girl was very short and seemed angry, she say we don’t do take out on holidays. I said not even just one desert, I’ll be in and out. She said no. I was very disappointed and a bit put off.
Other than that highly recommended
Great dinner and waiter was very nice. We were running late for our reservation and I called and they were very accommodating and I told them it was my husbands birthday and the table was decorated with scattered Birthday confetti, very nice touch.
i had checked there menu on the Website. Tuesday was suppossed to have a $20 wines. I was told by the waiter that the Website is an error. A holdover from previous owner. This is quite deceptive and the new owner needs to bring it down. The food however was wonderful
Went for my husbands birthday and food was amazing. I had the cowboy steak. It was truly the best steak I ever had. Looking forward to coming back
Excellent food and great overall dining experience.
Brando's is by far my favorite restaurant. It may be a bit pricey but it is worth every penny! You won't find better food anywhere. Exceptional service and the best atmosphere!
Overall this was very good. We were out with a couple and had an enjoyable time. Food was good, except for one issue, and we also had drinks from the bar which were good. My wife’s dish did not come out good at all. She had he pasta al for no in the foil wrapper and it came out completely mushy. We did notify the waiter and he was polite and asked if he could bring anything else but I much time had passed so my wife just let it go. We were a bit surprised that we were charged for the dish as well (after speaking to what seemed to be the manager who was going from table to table to check in). We also had a really good dessert which we shared. We would come back even after what we felt was a missed opportunity on the service side. Overall this seems like a solid place that we would certainly become regulars at.
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. They did a great job in preparing our table for this celebration! Our Server, Dylan, did a great job. Best of all is he had a excellent sense of humor. The evening was first class from start to finish. I enjoyed the Berkshire Pork Chop. My wife loved the Halibit. Our guest a pasta dish and a chicken dish and both were very good. Desserts were first rate. My last comment is that the pork chop was cooked perfectly. One of the best chops I ever consumed. This is a fun and romatic restaurant. Nice combination.
Always an outstanding experience. Food is superb, service is flawless, and the atmosphere is warm, welcoming, and relaxing. Truly a classy establishment.
As Shore residents always searching for upscale dining, we truly enjoyed our experience at Brando's. We would recommend it to others and look forward to getting a spot at the bar for an evening meal.
Great happy hour, dinner menu even better! Terrific service, as always.
One of the best Italian restaurants around. A little on the pricer side, but worth every penny.
Since the moment we walked into Brando’s we were greeted with a warm welcome by the hostess. We mentioned we had a reservation and they immediately seated us. The helpers immediately poured us water and brought us bread. The waiter then introduced himself and mentioned all the specials and took out drink orders. My wife had the Chicken Francaise that had such a wonderful taste especially with an amazing risotto ball to pair with it. I had the Seafood Fra Diavolo that had an amazing taste and the seafood that it contained was absolutely amazing. The whole dish had a great flavor to it that even though I got full I still wanted more. After our entrees we decided to look at the dessert menu and the Italian Cheesecake for two is what caught our eyes. It’s not your usual cheesecake that’s typically made with cream cheese this one had a ricotta filling that was too die for. Overall I would recommend Brando’s to anyone that wants a special place for that special occasion. My wife and I will definitely be coming back. Keep up the great work!
We went for Valentine's Day when you typically can not adjust from the menu. We were able to substitute veal instead of chicken without any problem.
Abraham was a terrific waiter. Can't wait to go back
We Love Brando's, the Food is out of this World Delicious, the Prices are reasonable, the service is always Wonderful, it just keeps getting better each and every time we visit the Restaurant.
Walking into Brando's was very much entering a different world from that of Main Street, Asbury Park. Brando's has the look and feel of a New York Italian steakhouse. Warm and inviting. Appetizers through dessert the food was prepared with skill and professional presentation. The entire experience made a return visit a priority.
Awesome...great place! Chicken Parm not on the menu but you can ask...Excellent!
Rigatoni Bolognese was outstanding
Well prepared dinners, drinks & desserts....
I have mixed feelings about Brando's. We waited 22 minutes before a water came to our table. When he came he apologized for the wait. They really aren't that busy either. My wife and I ate the dinner, which was delicious by the way, and each had a glass of wine. We paid the bill and as we were leaving the manager apologized for our wait again. I got a phone call the next day from the manager we saw at dinner. She left me a message apologizing again for the long wait we had and wanted my address to send us a voucher for a free drink. She stated that she and our waiter were talking about buying our drinks while we were eating but we had already paid the bill. This is where I have a problem. I didn't yell at them, give them a hard time about the wait, or any thing else. We were there for about 2 hours in all. I think if she wanted to buy us a drink she should have done it while we were there, and not call me the next day. I just feel this was too little too late. I just want to reiterate we did enjoy the food. After all it's hard not to enjoy an $85.00 steak.
Delicious from start to finish ! Thoroughly enjoyed grilled octopus appetizer . Husband had pork chop and said it was the best he ever had. I had the seafood stew , plentiful and tasty. Can’t wait for return visit.
