Arrived for a 7:30 reservation and was seated within 5 minutes. Our waiter was outstanding. Attentive without being intrusive. The view of the water and sunset was beautiful. Started with the crab bruschetta. It was very tasty but would have preferred the crab and peppers chopped up more. It was messy to eat. Love that they have half price bottles of wine on a Friday evening! My sister got the lobster tail. I had the special prime rib with crab and saporito sauce. Both dishes were delicious. The only negative, and it's not even really a big deal, was that the weren't any lights under the umbrella at our table. It made it difficult to see our food. Finished with lemon marscapone cake and Nutella torte. We will definitely be back.

The outside patio was gorgeous with a nice view. Our waiter was excellent as well as the other staff.

I wouldn’t go back because the food was terrible. We ordered three different entree’s and we sent one back and should have sent the second one back as well. The one chicken dinner was average.

The atmosphere was really beautiful on the water with the sunset. We were celebrating a birthday. Our server put a candle in the dessert for her. Overall it was a very good night.

It's been a while since our last visit and coming back was almost like coming home. Service was spot on. What we really appreciated was the last seating was 8PM this night even though we had 8:30 reservations through OpenTable. The front desk called us with plenty of time to spare, and informed us about the last seating, apologized for the mix-up and held a seat for us at 8PM if we still wanted to dine here. We did. Exceptional customer service. Food is always excellent and the drinks from the bar mixed superbly. With the deck open, overlooking Rancocas Creek, it's a perfect place to relax, enjoy a wonderful meal, and catch the sunset with an after dinner drink. The only thing holding my rating back from a 5 is that the inside restaurant is looking a bit dated. That said, it is always spotless and still very comfortable. We'll not be having so much time pass between visits now.

Food and everything was great but the service was awful. We had to chase him down for drinks, never received refills, half our party got there food while we waited another 20 minutes for ours. Too too it off when we got our check it had drinks that we ordered that we didn't even get. The server didn't apologize at all. He seemed like we were bothering him the whole time.

My boyfriend and I came here on Friday June 29th. We wanted a nice date night out because we were celebrating some things. The hostess was great, we decided to eat outside. Once we were seated we waited about 12 mins before even being greeted, during that 12 mins I heard 2 severs arguing about who had our table. Even after it was decided it took our server still a few mins to get to us. And just so you know it was after the rush so it wasn’t very busy. I am a server myself so I always give the benefit of the doubt and I just let all that go. Once the server did get to our table he didn’t introduce himself just walked over and said, “ What can I get you to drink” in mid sentence of telling him, he goes, “hold on a min” and walked away to another table. I really couldn’t believe the rudeness. I watched where he went thinking maybe it was an emergency but it wasn’t. He came back and said, “Ok what did you want?” We were in absolute shock. He brought back our drinks and rushed to get our orders. He brought our salads out and we didn’t see him for atleast 15 mins after that which was annoying because one of our salads wasn’t right so we just shared the other one, and we both had empty drinks and wanted another. Someone else brought our food out, which the food was great, about 10 mins in he finally came over didn’t acknowledge the fact my boyfriend had a whole salad sitting there untouched and finally asked if he could get us another drink. We really just wanted to pay and leave at this point. We were going out for a treat and the night was completely a joke. Even as we were leaving the valley almost hit me with someone’s car and didn’t even care. This place is not as nice as it’s made out to be. I won’t ever recommend it to anyone, and there’s not a chance we will be back. Please do not waste your money coming here if you need a nice Resturant to go to I would gladly give you a list of places much better than here.

My girlfriend asked to come here this evening. She LOVES the salmon amalfi. I like to try a variety. She had a salad; I had pasta fagioli. I also had linguini carnevale, a stew of various seafood over a bed of linguini, covered with white sauce. Food was delicious; we both took leftovers. She had a glass of sangria and rice pudding. Service was very good.

It is undergoing construction (and has been for awhile). Our seats were on the patio. The breeze and view of the water were both nice. However, our table was right outside of the tent area were the waiters were moving in and out with the food and not too far from the side of the building where construction dumpsters were situated. Therefore, our side view was not great.

Food quality was great! There were five of us and each was very satisfied with our meal. It was the best crab cake I have had! (And I have had quite a few having lived in MD for a while and still return often.) Also, our waiter and attention to our table was very good even though it was an extremely busy evening. It was Father's Day and the staff wished my husband "Happy Father's Day" several times.

The food was mediocre. I was surprised that I wasn't allowed to substitute anything or even ask for anything my way. We sat outside on the patio. They had umbrellas, but no fans or wind blowing. What topped it off was I saw one server pick his nose and the other dig in his pocket to scratch his private area. It was so obvious.Gross! I will not be returning. The only thing they have going for them, was that the restaurant is by the water. I rather eat great food in a dive, than have ok ambiance and mediocre food.

My family and I have gone many years to Carluccis for many special occasions and the food was always excellent. However this time my family and I were very disappointed in our meal. The chicken parmesan and the chicken Marsala were very bland. We brought the leftovers home and my husband was ablle to improve the taste for our dinner the next day. We were so looking forward to eating at Carluccis. What a disappointment. What happened?

One of the better places around the area. I was sorry not to see the marinated seafood salad on the menu this summer, I look forward to it. They made me a plate of something they make at the bar thinking it would be similar, but it was barely OK. I would like to see a more varied menu, with lighter offerings.

I was also distressed to see they are charging $1.50 extra for the Caesar salad. I asked shy when it had fewer ingredients, and was always the same price as the garden salad, and I was told it because of the Romaine Recall. There is no more recall. They need to fix that

We went for the happy hour. The bartender was very friendly but the staff who brought out our appetizers (3) were not friendly at all. Don't bother ordering the fried calamari as there is no flavor. We also ordered the fish tacos which are good. The appetizer with roasted peppers said it had sharp provolone but it did not. It also said it contained black olives but they were Kalamata olives

We chose Carluccis as their website indicated music Friday and Saturday but the hostess said "no musuc tonught"

Dinner was very good.

The restaurant was okay. A little dingy on the outside in the back. The food was mediocre nothing to write home about. The service was good not exceptional but okay. And if you're looking to get points for OpenTable don't count on them because they don't give you the points you deserved for the money you spent. We went and spent $100 on our meal plus tip and none of that was applied to our OpenTable point system
