Always an outstanding experience. Delicious food, great service, nice atmosphere. Meatball insalate and Beggars Purses (crispy wonton filled with sausage and ricotta) are great appetizers. Every main dish is done wonderfully well. The veal, chicken and pork dishes are crazy tender and flavorful. Their pasta Bolognese is a hearty and delicious meal. And they really know how to make top notch cocktails (great Manhattan). Love Brando's!
Great experience every time we come here. It’s definitely crowded and noisy on a Saturday night. Parking is difficult but they do have valet parking. but that didn’t stop us from coming back here because we love their food. and the staff are great.
Brando’s never disappoints! We have been eating there for years and always recommend it as one of our favorite restaurants in Asbury Park. We even had our wedding reception there in 2014. Saturday was our dear friends birthday and they haven’t stopped raving about the entire evening from start to finish! We love chris the bartender too. If you’re looking for exceptional Italian cuisine, look no further.
One of the best Italian meals ever!! Home made ravioli stuffed with filet mignon was out of this world!!! Home made zeppolis with vanilla ice cream was outrageous!! Highly recommend!!
Food was just ok. I didn’t really like what I ordered. Next time I come back I’ll try a different dish. Waitress was very nice - attentive and friendly. Loved the ricotta cheesecake.
Brando's has the best food in Asbury Park. They have a wonderful menu with items for virtually every budget. The ambiance is lovely, and on Fri and Sat night, they have valet parking, which is super helpful in that neighborhood!
Food exceptional. Drinks a little pricey at $16 a pop. Waiyer was phenomenal. A little loud but that was because of large group behind us. We definitely will be going back. Just hate the parking in Asbury.
Table was decorated for birthday event...really nice touch. Server was extremely attentive.
Awesome as usual. Great job Steve and staff!!!!! One of our favorites for years
Excellent food, Excellent service, wonderful time!! Second time here and it’s a keeper!! Worth it
We were six for a second go around and as before were super pleased with both their very gourmet style Italian dishes -- and their exceptional steaks.
Would definitely recommend it. Great service, very good food and decibel levels you can actually hear conversation with. Pleasant place to sit. A bonus in Asbury - free street parking! Winning combination. We’ll be back.
Fantastic as always. Food is great probably best Italian on the jersey shore staff is knowledgeable and accommodating Waiter took it upon himself to get my daughter some cannoli’s with holly birthday in the plate. Excellent experience as usual with brandos. And the food is exquisite
My family and I were looking forward to a family get together and your Sunday sauce . Our daughter traveled down from Jersey City as well. Our server Kyle was awesome. After we ordered we were told they were out of the Special Sunday sauce. We were there by 645 n ordered by 7. Are you kidding? Where could we go now? How could you be out of your famous special? How do you not tell your staff ahead of time that you are running low n to be aware? It truly ruined my evening but we made the best of it. Kyle went out of his way apologizing but we knew it wasn’t his fault. Lastly you would think a wonderful establishment would compensate your patrons with a drink on the house or a dessert . But that was not the case. Very unfortunate because You lost a returning customer.
Never a bad meal here my wife and I always enjoy our food and Brando’s in general!
Always a really wonderful evening. Service is top notch and food is always fantastic.
The food is always delicious. The service is exceptional. You must try the octopus appetizer! This was our second visit to Brando’s and we will be back again.
Abraham, our Server, was quite knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive! Outstanding food as well! Kieran the Manager was very personable! All around great experience! We can’t wait to visit again!
Enjoyed a wonderful early Easter dinner! For an appetizer the Beet Salad was delicious! As entree's we enjoyed the CHICKEN FRANCAISE which was a generous portion and FILET MIGNON which was cooked to perfection. Our server was pleasant, knowledgable and attentive. For dessert we shared the ITALIAN CHEESECAKE - for two. Having valet parking is a plus! Always a pleasant experience and delicious food!
Easter was great!
Easter Sunday brunch. Food was delicious. Portions big enough for generous take-homes. Service was friendly and attentive.
A very nice meal celebrating my daughter’s birthday. The service and food were excellent.
We were there Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. I had the lobster tail special and my boyfriend had the veal chop parmigiana both dishes were excellent. The service was wonderful and was surprised at the end with a Birthday dessert. Thanks!
Outstanding food and service as usual!
I was looking forward to trying Brando's but unfortunately it was very disappointing. The noise level was unacceptable. Although the appetizers were great, the main course were horrible. Savoy Chicken was too sticky to be able to eat it properly. The special lobster dish was dry and difficult to get out of the shell. Won't go back.
The fried zucchini appetizer was just slabs of breaded & fried zucchini, not the more preferred crunchy stick type(like the have at Brioso's). The gnocchi trio and octopus were good however. Desserts were also good.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Great bar and wine. Enjoyed.
Fantastic as always
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
