    Great dining experience. Good service, excellent choices for meals. Only challenge was the grilled calamari- too rubbery; should have been prepared differently. Grilling or more well done would have been good. We didn’t eat most of it. Everything else was delish!

    There were 4 of us- seated outside- we ordered appetizers, and dinners- the service was incredibly slow- and most certainly not friendly. The chicken Parmesan was fantastic- and so was the chicken franchise- the charcuterie board was just ok- with few options on it. All and all the noice level was uncomfortable, service was slow and not friendly- I won’t go back to this location again this season.

    It was Thursday in-Season and packed. We ate outside which was more quiet than inside. Despite over 100 patrons things flowed smoothly. We were given a starter on the house (scallops wrapped in bacon) which was yummy and especially so to be able to dip our bread into the basel cream sauce :-) Salads were fresh and dressing lite with a just-right amount. I had the veal chop with a blue cheese and crab sauce which was excellent. Pescatore was plentiful and pasta 'meaty' and al dente - just right. Our friends had two different veal dishes which they enjoyed. We did not do desert but had some lovely Capuchinos. We have been many times and will be there many times again!

    There were ridiculous requirements about how much you had to order. Server was TOTALLY overwhelmed with way too many tables. Considering how many tables she had she did a FANTASTIC job. Everything was just OK

    So disappointing, we have eaten there many times and it was delicious. I don’t know if it was because it was a Saturday night in July, but that is really no reason… we had a 6:15 reservation inside and we did not even see a server until 6:45. Not even someone we could ask. The table next to us was seated and their table was not only close but rocked horribly , they had to be reseated and then put another couple there even though they could not fix the issue. We received our food and it was not as good as it usually is, and the price, all specials were $50 a plate. Wouldn’t have cared if it was great… The noise level was crazy loud. Once again, we are local and it makes me sad that another restaurant we use to love to go to has fallen short on quality and service. It really doesn’t make me want to go out to dinner in Cape May County anymore.

    we had our annual reservation at 6:45. thursday night. we were late coming off the beach so we wanted to check in, grab the table and then my husband was gonna go run and pick up a bottle of wine. The host suggested we order from Kicks so we sat down outside it was a nice breeze and ordered within five minutes our wine was delivered! paired with the gnocchis and halibut, we had an incredible meal! he live in Ocean City but we will see you next year again.

    Bardhi was an awesome server - he made our night! We dined at the La Fontana family of restaurants when we lived in New Jersey. We are here on vacation to visit family and friends and are so glad to be back to great food at La Fontana too. Thanks for accommodating us as the last reservation of the night - it was greatly appreciated. The food was great - as always. We will be back before we head home and we will request Bardhi as our server for sure!

    Prices on website are much lower than actual menu; all 'specials' were $51 but price NOT listed on menu; food was not as good a previous visits. Mandatory 20% gratuity added to ALL bills and then taxed! and additional 3.25% added if using credit card but they don't tell you that when making reservation. Not at all satisfied for money spent.

    The food and service at La Fontana Coast are always top rate. Three of us had veal piccata, which was outstanding. The noise level inside, however, was terrible, so we asked our hostess to move us outside. So much better! It was starting to rain as we finished, but we were happy. Thank you, Olivia, for saving our Saturday night.

    Ordered Antipasto Dell Casa for appetizer. Not like it used to be - smaller and less meat and cheese than when previously ordered. Veal Franchise and Veal parm entrees very good. Prices on check did not match what was on menu for any of our items ordered (e.g., Veal Parm $29 on menu, $29.95 on check). They also now charge 3.25% for using a credit card. .
