Our meals were absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the special seasonal soup, the special pork chop which was very moist, tender and very very tasty. We also had the lobster toast and halibut dishes which were fantastic. Our server was delightful. A very enjoyable evening. No wonder it’s always so difficult to get a reservation.
Not up to its usual high standard. Might be because it was the end of the season, closing shortly. Halibut not cooked, apologized but the damage was done. Wahoo was a special, it was dry. Will still go back next year and give it another try.
Everything was great as always. Would love to see the Thai Shrimp from years ago come back.
Love Cafe Loren! Great date spot! Food, service and ambience wonderful! ❤️
The food was delicious as always but the service was just ok. Empty plates were left on table even after the busperson passed by a few times and I do not like my wine glass held in servers hand as the wine is poured.
Took out of town guests to CAFE Loren and they loved it. The seafood bisque was very good. Duck breast was phenomenal. Scallops were good. Swordfish was ok. It was dry. Needs a sauce or something to make it more moist. Deserts were great. It was a pleasant evening. Server was very friendly. Timing was good. Could have been a bit more lull between appetizers and entrees. Cafe Loren is consistenytly good. Just wish it was less crowded in the summer but happy to be there in September and appreciate that is stays open in September
Wonderful staff and excellent meal at this renowned BYOB.
Would highly recommend Cafe Loren- it was excellent!
Food presentation beautiful
Great flavors in the entrees
Our filet which we look forward to and have never been disappointed was well done and dry. It was ordered medium and was well done
I love this restaurant and have always been more than happy with everything
Guess it was just an off night Because of always being more than satisfied I went with overall 4not 3
We will try again next summer. Thanks
My wife and I recently had dinner at Cafe Lauren for the first time in years. I wish we hadn’t waited so long to go back . The food was excellent and the service was very good (in contrast to most shore restaurants, where one is lucky to have just ok service). We’ll return soon.
Awesome. Food was great and service very good. Will definitely teturn
Cafe Loren is a professionally operated restaurant with high standards for everything from decor to service all the while retaining a comfortable seashore atmosphere, oh and by the way, the food is the best part.
Our favorite restaurant on Seven Mile Island. Always great meal, great service.
Very good experience. Food was cooked exceptionally. Service was great. The only thing I would recommend is better bread. Highly recommend this place
Great help, great food and excellent service!
We've been here for one week and two visits to Cafe Loren. We are never disappointed here & will continue to patronize this elegant restaurant whenever we visit Avalon.
Excellent!! Best restaurant on the island!! We had beautifully prepared octopus, beet salad, and lobster toast to start followed but amazing entrees of steak, scallops, and salmon! Can't wait for next summer.
This is our favorite place to eat. We look forward to it every year when we plan our vacation. The food is fantastic, the service and atmosphere are great. Not inexpensive, but reasonable considering the quality and the location. Not always easy to get reservations, though. You have to plan ahead.
Only our second visit, just as our first time, our meals we outstanding,. Service top shelf. Will be back often to be sure.
First time, so I did not know what to expect looking at the entrance. I was pleasantly surprised on entering with the size of the restaurant and the comfortable setting. We relished every dish served and had a waitress that made the experience even more enjoyable.
We will certainly go back again.
Our favorite restaurant never disappoints, but this visit was even more special. After requesting at every visit this season, they prepared their delicious creme brûlée’ for our final dinner there this year. It was the perfect end to a perfect meal! Thank you Loren and Josh!
Joanne was awesome. We loved everything about our dinner. So happy we went.
Everything was wonderful, especially Sally, and oh yes the food was over the top!! The dessert (macadamia nut tort) was too rich and over priced at $12.50!! Prices are also UP from last year.
The food is consistently good here. My husbands duck was cooked perfectly & the fried rice was okay.
I had halibut with roasted tomatoes and risotto.
The risotto was more like rice, less creamy than usual
Risotto. The desserts looked great, especially the chocolate mousse & blueberry crisp. My husband wanted soft ice cream at Avalon Freeze next door.
We enjoy visiting once a year.
I've eaten here at least twenty times over many years, and I always find the dishes inventive, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented by friendly and knowledgeable servers. A trip to Café Loren is a highlight of our summer vacation break.
We had a very nice meal and were well served. Although ir is BYOB, our servers were.attentive to every detail, including glasses. The food was prepared well and artistically plated. Great evening.
My wife and I dine at Cafe Loren weekly during the season. We have never been disappointed. The staff and food are excellent!
As good a Jersey shore restaurant as I’ve ever experienced. A bit pricey, but worth the money.
A perfect setting for our anniversary. The food was just terrific!
Never disappointing. Consistently excellent!
Great service and delicious foid
Very nice evening, fabulous waitress....food very good. Will definitely go back!
Always wonderful! My only complaint is that it is not open all year long!
We were seated at a table next to the restroom entrance. Not appetizing.
Soup and Appetizers were very good; Entrée was disappointing and rather tasteless.
Expensive for what it was. Almost Manhattan prices. Server failed to disclose the price of the "specials" so we were surprised. Service was OK, not great. Noise level loud. Teenager at next table was staring at his phone literally the entire time. Not pleasant. Decor minimal; circa 1990. Not going back.
Got a last minute
Our favorite place in Avalon!
Great food, ambience and service!!
Great meal....perfect pacing....sizeable portions...WILL RETURN!!!
