The food and service were both excellent. The ambiance and decor made the restaraunt feel very cozy. Staff was friendly and prompt. Solid craft beer draft list, and nice cocktail choices as well. My wife ordered the flat iron steak, I went with the soba noodle bowl, and they were delicious. We enjoyed our entrees and drinks so much that we did not have room for dessert. At least it gives us and excuse to return, we will definitely be back.

We enjoyed our evening at Gusto Grill. The food was very good. The mushroom and Brie flatbread was delicious. We split that with the Gusto Salad. The salad was good but it needed more dressing. Another person with us had the papperdelle with short ribs and said it was delicious. The waitstaff was excellent. The restaurant was very, very noisy. It was difficult to carry on a conversation at our table. We will be going back though.

Had visited before for salads and apps which were fairly good and despite other lackluster reviews my party and I decided to visit again for dinner.
The portions were small especially for the price which wouldn’t have been a problem if the food was appealing. Tuna was so overdone it looked like pork, The steak was unevenly cooked and the tasteless burger was a compacted frozen style on par with those served at a luncheonette. Disappointing, won’t be back.

Made a reservation but still had to wait around 15 minutes even though tables were empty. Shared a kale salad which is a good size and asked them to split it in the kitchen. They didn’t. Had to ask for an extra plate. I ordered a tuna and cavatelli entree from the specials- it was ok- I was expecting sushi grade - my mistake because it didn’t say that on the menu. I do have to say the beet and cucumber martini was pretty fabulous- this place has always had great cocktails.

I thought this would be a nice dinner spot for a date turns out it was just ok... all the tables around us got bread however we had to request it and it arrived with our appetizers my date was not thrilled with the food at all... for the price of the burger it would think it was gonna be tasteful and superb but at best I rather would have gotten one from Friday’s with more robust and flavor.... the ambiance is was ok nothing special... I ordered a martini and it was a bit strong considering it’s suppose to be a smooth cocktail. They are above 1 star but it just didn’t impress me at all...

We came here a couple of months ago and the place was full. this time only a few tables were occupied, there was very few customers and I'm not surprised. No Turkey burger was available. The pizza that I ordered came warm. They charged me twice for a small glass of orange juice. Every other restaurant I know offers free refills on juices. I paid 8$ for two time glasses if juice Haha. The server was not friendly whatsoever.

Gusto Grill is a fun dining spot. Their beer and wine menu is outstanding. The dinner menu is also outstanding. Their classic burger is anything but classic. I would say it is one of the best burgers you can find in NJ. The atmosphere is comfortable and cozy and while it’s great for families it is also great for date night. The staff is fantastic and they put the emphasis on customer service.

Not a fan of sesame seeds on the bread, love the edamame hummus and kale salad. A little pricey and for that price I’d appreciate filtered not tap water!

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We ordered a crab cake appetizer with a side of fingerling potatoes as one meal and the salmon entree with asparagus as the second. Both meals were delicious and nicely presented. We finished with a shared frozen chocolate mousse, which was also very tasty. We each had a cocktail which were prepared to our liking. Service was attentive. The only less than pleasing aspect of the meal was the noise level. There were several large parties when we arrived but even after their departure it was challenging to carry on a conversation.

We had dinner with friends. Our server seemed disappointed that we didn't order drinks or appetizers. She asked us more than once after we declined. What bothered me the most about the restaurant was the extra charge $4.00 for fries with your 11.00 hamburger! I found that really greedy who charges for fries if you order a burger it should come with it or just include it in the price don't make it an upcharge. The food was tasty, but the room was loud and hard to have a conversation.

My husband steak was hard as a rock and dry. The two drinks we ordered were tastless and water down. The waitress was nice and attentive . For the price we excepted better food. We went on Father's Day and our bill was over $200 for food that no ate and left most of it on the table. We did't even want to take it home. Will not return and will not recommend.

Waiter seemed unenthused and was barely found throughout dinner. Drinks from the bar were lousy. Not sure if this place is better during the week but Sunday staff were a thumbs down. 👎 Extremely unattentive from the moment we sat down.
