The atmosphere was great as the restaurant was decorated for Christmas. The appetizers were phenomenal (try the crab bruschetta). However, the entrees were just average and for the prices they charge, I expected more. Great for a special occasion because of the location but just a regular night out it's over priced.

We love Carlucci's. When we first moved from Long Island to New Jersey we needed a nice place on the water and we found Carlucci's. Service is always great, menu choices and food are outstanding, specials are enticing and the happy hour at the bar is super. Bartenders are always so nice and accommodating and sometimes we remain there for appetizers and also dinner. We also love to sit outside during the warmer seasons. The only problem we have found is sometimes the bar is overly packed and although large it isn't large enough to accomodate enough people for Happy Hour. The other night we managed to fine one seat and my husband stood behind me. It was a special occasion but it didn't work out especially since we tried to share the appetizers. So we settled the bill and went to our table. It was disappointing because we love sitting at the bar. In fact one time we started talking to another couple and have remained friends ever since. On the positive side I had made a reservation in the dining room for a window and it was waiting for us. I'm not sure how the bar problem can be solved but all in all the place is great...keep up the good work!

Appetizer came cold...mussels and all else on plate. Vodka rigatoni was undercooked and supposedly had prosciutto, but none in sauce. The waiter was too nonchalant and inattentive.
Best part of my meal was the cappuccino and the spumoni, neither one required a chef.
This is my sister’s favorite restaurant. I mentioned that on open table that it was her birthday, but the occasion was unacknowledged.
It was also extremely cold n the restaurant which added to my disappointment and the general unpleasantness. This was overall a lesson n how to make your customer unhappy.

The food was good but service not so much. I understand it was Thanksgiving, however after we were brought our refreshments, the waiter forgot about us for about 20-25 minutes and we were ready to order once the drinks came.
After dinner we ordered dessert and coffee. Our coffees were forgotten and the bill was brought. Waiter stated he would go get our coffees and 10 minutes later came back that the coffee machine was allegedly broke but he can bring us 2 coffees from the bar. No thanks, we stopped at Dunkin.
My husband refuses to go back, but I would like to try it again during the warmer season and not during a busy holiday. It’s the first year I didn’t cook and decided to go out (definitely a first and last).

I tipped the waiter out of courtesy, however I do feel the waiter was prejudice. Yes, I am African American who has visited this establishment before and NVR experienced the service like I did on Thanksgiving evening. Very upsetting! The situation has taught me something: customer service means everything in today's society and if Carlucci's on the Waterfront is interested in performing business and receiving negative reviews, I would hope some type of corporate compliance training would be put into place after my visit. I will post this message on other websites. Thanks for the ice cream.

I get that it’s a holiday. Very disappointed with the meal. Everything came out cold and we ordered steaks. For the average price of over $40.00 for a steak, I would recommend you spend the few extra dollars and go to a place like capital grille. I would rate them more to be a low to mid range restaurant. 2nd time here and will not be back.

We booked this for Thanksgiving and were so pleased with the choice. Everyone loved their meal. The Italian food, turkey dinner and service. We all agreed we would eat here again anytime. Will definitely dine here again. Usually holiday restaurant dining is less than pleasant but this restaurant was fabulous. Recommend it highly.

Restraint smelled of mold. Mold and dirt visible on ceiling. No heat in Women’s Room. Interior should be updated. Food was average, nothing to write home about. Highlight of our visit was the outstanding service. A great team who were very attentive to the customer. Highly popular with the Senior Citizen crowd. Overpriced for what was delivered.

I took my husband here for his birthday. We were greeted at the door and lead to the main room (this place is big) to a very nice table by the windows. Apparently there is a view, but there are no lights on the outside this night to display the view. So no view. The seating and room does not look like its' been updated in a long while.
The menu offers a lot of different choices and every entree comes with either soup or salad. Very nice. I ordered baby lamb chops with a cup of soup and my husband ordered the sea bass with a salad. Food came in a timely manner and the waiters were very attentive. Both of our meals were delicious! Very nicely presented and nice size plate, no complaints. We ate everything, which might be my husbands MO but rarely mine, so apparently it was really good.
All in all, the evening was lovely, I just wished the restaurant was more updated and upbeat which would bring me back again to eat this delicious food.

Outdoor seating was beautiful if you were facing the water. However, half of our party was facing the restaurant. The view was a closed bar area used for storage and overflowing bus pans with dirty dishes. For the prices, I would have expected a little more courtesy. Drinks and food were good, but the overall experience didn't match the prices.

We went Saturday afternoon. We enjoyed the food though the portions were small for the cost. The interior design needs updating and the seating was someone close. It looked like they were doing some renovating to the exterior. The patio is large and roomy and it is wonderful that it sits on the Rancocas Creek. Summer nights and fall afternoons must be lovely.

We live very close to this restaurant and enjoy dining on the patio. Saturday night we went to celebrate my birthday: my husband, 4 of our sons, our daughter in law and two grandchildren, ages 6 and 4. It was a beautiful night: the food was superb and the service was exemplary. The kids spilled their drinks 4x (including a broken glass). Our waiter never lost his cool, served our meal (for a party of 9!) with not one error. We will certainly come back to make more family memories.
