Cafe Loren is always a great choice for dining. The food and service were excellent once again.
Always have had a wonderful experience at Cafe Loren
Always a great time Cafe Loren!
We come here every year and it's always an amazing experience. The food and service is outstanding! Highly recommend the bisque and veal Loren. Can't wait to come back next year!
The food here is always great. Menu and preparation are interesting. And the service is great. The restaurant would love a renovation to make it more open, and more space, as it's always difficult to get a reservation.
Celebrated our anniversary and the dessert was delivered with candles to celebrate - super food
I took a large part to Café Loren based on a family recommendation. While the menu reads very well but I'm sorry to say that no one in our party enjoyed there meals. While the menu items appear to have a French basis the execution did not. This contradiction didn't seem to work well.
Our entrees which were both the veal were delicious. Very complex and well constructed dish! One of my husband's favorite restaurants and we were not disappointed
Staff and food were fantastic! Every course was better than the last. Love BYO!!
Great server. The Veal Loren was delicious combination and great presentation. Scallops for the first crse. were excellent !
The food was excellent as was the service. We had a wonderful night. Can't wait to go back.
Not your typical beach restaurant, Cafe Loren boasts a beautiful atmosphere, lovely surroundings, white tableclothes, nicely-attired servers and delicious food! A little pricey, but definitely worth it for the wonderful food and relaxed and lovely atmosphere. A great restaurant for a special occasion.
Our go to place for fine dining in Avalon. Butternut squash soup yummy. I had duck breast, cooked to perfection. My wife had swordfish, also wonderful. Finished sharing key lime pie. Service and staff friendly and accomodating
The Cajun Shrimp and grits are heavenly! I've eaten here for many years, and I've never had anything that wasn't delicious.
Cafe Loren continues to deliver amazing food and service in a beautiful, quiet environment. The menu combines classic cuts with creative delivery and beautiful presentation, like short ribs with roasted peaches and blueberry sauce, or swordfish with Mexican street corn. We also recommend the octopus appetizer, the scallops and the panacotta dessert. The service is excellent and we always have a great experience dining here!
As nice as cafe Loren is on the inside, our appetizers were incredible and our dinner was very disappointing for a chef supposedly trained with Gordon Ramsey. I had the buttoni noodles crab and gravy special and we both felt it lacked taste. It was very bland and really needed some additional herbs and spices to pick up the taste. Very pricey which is fine with great food but that was not the case. We had been to basillicos in sea isle the night before and it has always been outstanding and offers a lot of specials. We have never been disappointed. Had our dinner matched the taste of our appetizers my review would have been outstanding. Unfortunately that was not the case and for the prices I can't say I will recommend cafe Loren since their are numerous other dining establishments we have visited with better and more consistency in quality food all of the time.
Another perfect night at The Cafe Loren and with Sally.
Cafe Loren. - nice place. Delicious food. Server Mike was fantastic !
We go every summer to cafe Loren
It was an anniversary date for when we first met in avalon as well as a gift from our engagement party
This was our best meal at the Jersey Shore this summer. Fine dining at its best. Thank you to Michael who took great care of us. Can't wait to go back.
We both enjoyed our meals, very good and a nice presentation! Our server Sean was excellent. He knew the menu very well and he was very sociable. He was a great representative of your restaurant!
This is a favorite restaurant of ours in Avalon. Year after year we are never disappointed. The food is unique and delicious. On our last visit our waitress was spectacular- so friendly and warm. Made for a very special night. Being a BYOB makes it so affordable. This place is a gem!
food was terrible, even the specials that were recommended by there waitress were horrific
This meal was one of the best I can remember. We thoroughly enjoyed the octopus and shrimp & grits as starters. The most tender octopus we have ever had. The shrimp and grits was awesome. Our entrees included the veal medallions and the New York Strip, which was an addition to the menu. Everything was perfectly cooked and presented. Highly recommended!
This was a new restaurant for us, and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was excellent, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. An added bonus was the fact that it's a BYOB establishment.
If you're in Avalon or one of the surrounding communities in South Jersey don't miss Cafe Loren. We've been going there for over 20 years and they never disappoint. GO!!!
Excellent atmosphere, food and service. Going back for our anniversary April
Always a pleasure at Cafe Loren-even though I was caught by surprise that the ownership had changed. The menu is pretty much the same-and still delicious. Many of the same staff members are there which is terrific-and a compliment. The atmosphere has not changed. All that being said,I'll be back next year!
Always perfect. My favorite restaurant!
Cafe Loren has always been a favorite at the shore. The food is always delicious and the service excellent.
Always fun to reconnect with this special place in the heart of Avalon. The was surprisingly diverse this time, and really interesting. Overall, our experience was great! Scallop appetizer was amazing, but tuna tartare was bland. Veal Loren was outstanding, as was the halibut special. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall, a fun experience!
Liked it so much came back a second time a few days later.
Ambience was great. The food was very good and portions were just right. Our waitperson, Amy, was exceptional, answering all our questions and being very attentive
Everything about the evening was wonderful. The hostess was charming , the waiter was professional, and the food beautifully prepared and delicious! Rave reviews for the short ribs! Cafe Loren remains an excellent choice!
Excellent swordfish dish. Very light and tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Nice hostess and excellent service.
We dined here for our 3rd anniversary which always tends to fall on the week of our annual Avalon visit. The food was impeccable as well as the service. Thank you for a memorable meal that we will be sure to repeat next year!
Love Cafe Loren! This restaurant ranks up there in the top 5 of any one I've been too. Great service and food. The only negative thing I can say is that they have a lot of tables in a small area. Some guys were having a hard time just walking to the bathroom and back. Definitely recommend!
The food was off the charts, the service was great, would go back every time I'm at the shore
Great restaurant and even better service. Highly recommended for great food when in Avalon.
My wife and I just travelled to Nashville, Atlanta, & Savanah last month. Even with all of the amazing meals we had along the way, we both think this meal was the BEST of the Summer! What a treat to have at the Shore. I also love BYOB and a great shop a couple doors down. Highest accolades to the chefs, staff, & owner.
