We enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere but the service was poor. We had to get up and get our own water after repeatedly requesting some from our server. Our server neglected to tell us the specials, didn't know prices, and was often nowhere to be found. Fortunately, a nearby server helped us out after seeing we had been waiting for 10 minutes with no sign of our server.

was there on a Wednesday night and could not believe how crowded this restaurant was mid week off season. They accommodated our request to sit near the fireplace as my friend was cold. I started with the parppadelli with wild mushrooms and it was delicious. I then had the branzino which was perfectly prepared but could have used a little more in the way of herbs. My friend had the steak which was perfectly prepared also. The wait staff are slow and luckily the manager saw that my salt crusted fish was sitting waiting to be filleted and he came over and did it himself. I made a reservation to go back when I am back in the area this July. Hopefully they put my reservation for 8 people on Wed July 25th at 6 pm in the book as I left it with the bartender as everyone else was so busy. I highly recommend this restaurant for the quality of the food.

We absolutely LOVED this restaurant. We had the filet mignon with a red wine sauce and the
RISOTTO TARTUFATO. Both were amazing dishes. I am looking forward to going back again. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!

This was my second visit to this restaurant because I like the food the Ambience and the service. Great for a special occasion or for a good dinner outside the Casino restaurants. Reasonably priced for a quality restaurant.

Sat at the bar before moving to our table. Bartender took the time to take our picture for us too.
Courses were timed perfectly throughout our meal and we were never rushed. Food has been consistently delicious each time there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Girasole! A very warm and welcoming place with great food and very attentive service. Upon recommendation we shared octopus appetizer, braciola entree and a pasta dish with shrimp, clams and crabmeat. Everything was outstanding!

Food and service took forever! I ordered an app for my meal (after we had apps and salads) and it took almost 2 hours to come out. Two tables around us received their food before us despite being seated after us. We had a reservation and there was confusion to seat us. Ignored by the waiter most of the night. And the prices were out of hand. I have no problem spending money on a night out but the quality and ambience in no way justify the bill. AVOID!!!! There are plenty of other great spots down the shore - this is not one of them.

We just love this restaurant ! It has a wonderful casually elegant ambiance, the food is consistently delicious, and the service is wonderful. We have yet, (including Cape May and Philadelphia) to see a selection of carpaccio as Girasole offers. These items are varied and delicious. They also prepare the best brussel sprouts you will consume ANYWHERE! The staff is very attentive to customers and the detail of their satisfaction, the cocktails are beautifully balanced, and the setting is comfortably sophisticated without being pretentious.

We are delighted the restaurant is so close so we can go often-and absolutely recommend it.

I hadn't been there in many years...friends suggested it. The food was good...should have been perfect for the time it took to prepare. Service was OK...will probably be many years before I'll return.

Salad was awful, had apples, a few walnuts and tasteless greens. Robbery for the ten or eleven dollars they charged. My wife had the Girasole Chicken. It was the size of a deck of cards, and looked like it had been boiled in water. Tasteless. She gave most of it to me to add to the minuscule amount of crab meat in my Black pasta and crab meat entree. Only saving grace was used our J’Eat book. You asked, that is our feelings. Will not go to post on Trip Advisor but I should.

Rude rude man. We had. 7:15 reservation. When we arrived he would t even take our name as there were so many people there. He just said he didn’t care about our reservation and he had to seat all the others in front of us. I don’t even think they look at the open table reservations. Or they let too many walk ins.
They are noisy and very rude.

Wow this was a gem! Fantastic cocktails and the most comfortable couches in the bar area. Somewhat eclectic decorating that was fascinating. We just loved the fireplace. And the food was out of this world ! The burrata mozzarella beet salad is to die for! The bronzini and salmon were splendid. And the service was top notch! Will definitely be making a repeat trip here on my next visit to AC.

I went for restaurant week. My first course was good (eggplant) then it went down hill. Our waiter was friendly but seemed rushed. Spilt water on our table when pouring and no apology or attemt to clean the spill. I tried something different "carpaccio". We didn't realize it was raw! Unedible to most. Sorry I would not return.

Amazing food. Only complaint is that they charged us for dessert when it was supposed to be part of the Restaurant Week deal and we didn't notice. Probably an honest mistake, but the food was worth it anyway. Definitely one of the best kept secrets of AC.

Came here for the restaurant week lunch and we were very happy with the food. In addition to the prix fixe, we added the filet carpaccio; it was delicious and paired well with the sparkling rose (didn’t think to look at the name, it’s on their glass list). By the time dessert arrived, they had run out of the chocolate mousse and we were served a cheesecake instead. It was a complete miss. While we wish the pasta was house made (they use dried), we will be back!
