    We were a party of 4. We had the Chicken Parm; Lasagna Bolognese special, and Veal Francaise. All were prepared nicely. The service was excellent. It was busy yet our server stopped by often to make sure we were satisfied. We have been mainstays at LFC for years. They continue to impress.

    The smoked salmon salad was excellent. The Pollo Alla Milanese was very difficult to cut even with a steak knife. My husband ordered chicken Parmigiana it was good, but not any better than an off shore diner. Our service was excellent!

    There are not a lot of choices in Sea Isle NJ on a Tuesday in winter. La Fontana is open all year and I expected mediocre food- was totally impressed by the quality and taste of the food! Our server was very accommodating and pleasant! We have eaten there In season many times and love it just as much off season! A true favorite!

    Had a reservation. Reservation not honored. Sent us across the street in the rain to the pizza place for dinner. Waited an hour and a half to find out that one of the items that we ordered was no longer available. Overpriced menu for New Year’s Eve. Bad experience and unfortunately not the first time. I will never go back to this location.

    Worst restaurant I have ever been to. Host was arrogant and refused to seat us even though we had a reservation. Told us we can sit outside or eat at a pizza parlor across the road. I will never go to one of the restaurant owner’s establishments again. We watched as the servers walked across the road in the rain to deliver the food at the pizza restaurant. Terrible experience and the arrogant host at the front desk of La Fontana told us if we don’t like the options then we can leave and never come back. No way to treat customers. Left restaurant and went to La Finestra.

    Service was outstanding. Prices have been raised and $45 for gnocchi and crab meat is a little pricey.....thank god for a gift card. It is always good here and the abbreviated menu was a little disappointing but it was NYE. Overall one of my favorite spots and will always return.

    Our Christmas eve Dinner was exceptional. The traditional 7 fishes Meal was fantastic. Each course was superb, served with a cadence that was spot on. Enough time to savor each dish but not a too long a wait until the next course was presented. Jasmine and her team, were attentive, pleasant and efficient. In a time when conversation often turns to exorbitant On our lips today was talk the fantastic deal La Fontana Coast offered their guest, 6 courses & fishes, for 49.99 each. Needless to say our Christmas eve 2023 plans include La Fontana Coast.

    It was a lively, lovely evening and nice environment to share a holiday gathering. The burrata special salad was fresh and delicious; our friend enjoyed a Caesar salad. My entree of veal Francese was light & lemony but my partner’s veal parmigiana was disappointing due to chewy quality of the veal. Some very nice touches presented by the owner were fresh, warm bruschetta before our entrees and a delicious ending of lemoncello.
