Pretty building inside and out. Food bland pasta mushy. Won't go back. You can't judge a book by its cover.

We live in Manasquan and have been to Fratello's quite a few times. We wouldn't keep coming back if the food and service weren't always top-notch. Our food, on Valentine's Day, was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and pleasant. We made a reservation and we were seated immediately. Sometimes you make a reservation and you still need to wait. We'll be back, Thanks for an enjoyable evening at a neighborhood gem. Rich

They know how to take the reservation, they just don't know how to enforce it: Went for the first time this past weekend. Let’s start with the good things… Food is really good. Great bar and really enjoyed our bartender Joe. But on to the disappointments: there was a major lack of concern regarding our reservation. Reservation was for 6:45PM, arrived about 10 minutes early, and was told our table was not quite ready so we waited at the bar literally 5 feet from the hostess. 30 minutes went by… No one ever came over and apologized for the wait or even acknowledged our presence. Finally went to the hostess and asked if we should just eat at the bar. Hostess discussed with, I believe the owner, who didn’t even bother to acknowledge us. Finally went back to the hostess who said that, now 45 minutes later, there was still one couple in front of us. So after all that time waiting, we sat at the bar where we had been all that time and had our dinner. And never once did anyone from management come over and apologize. It is clear that this is a local hang out with many regulars. It’s unfortunate that we weren’t important enough for even an apology.

Excellent dinner and service. Couldn’t have been better. Always our go-to place. Potato crusted grouper was delicious. As was the grilled salmon. Oysters Rockefeller the best ever!

It's always a pleasurable time at this wonderful place. We actually prefer sitting in the bar area booths rather than the dining room because it is simply more comfy and private.

Thank goodness the food was very good because the service was below average. Maybe short handed but on a Saturday night! Party next to us was extremely loud, obnoxious and continuously cursing. Staff did not quiet them down at all but did apologize for their behavior. Probably be back because the food was very good but maybe try a different night. We’ll see.

The food and the service were excellent! We had a table around the outside of the bar which was lively. It was a bit loud but we were able to have have a conversation with no problem. The cocktails were excellent and although not lengthy, the wine list had a good selection. Will definitely go again and try both sitting at the bar as well as the main dining room.

Food very bland. Salad dressings runny and too much. Grilled chicken on salads and in pasta dishes served whole. Too difficult to cut up. Too much sauce on Rigatoni Bolognese. Mushy roasted peppers. Servers too busy, maybe not enough of them. Bar area too much hussle from other diners at tables getting served right behind you. Kids menu ok.

We really love this restaurant but our meal Saturday was not as good as it normally is. It was very bland. Not sure if there is a change of management.
