Mara's Continental Cuisine
Valentine’s Day always has high prices. This was a good meal. After tax and tip well over $100 each. It was about. $30-$40 meal
Like I said. Valentine’s Day is a nice day. But a restaurant high priced Day
People are very nice and food is good - but it took an hour to get our food. I think they were short handed. I’ll still go back. Tuna tartar was delicious.
We really do love this place. Best rack of lamb in and of town.
The French Onion soup was excellent; highly recommend it. Not a huge selection of main courses on the menu; a few specials provided more options. But all food was well prepared and tasty. Service just a bit on the slow side, but very friendly. I will go back.
Love this place. They treat us like royalty and they don't know us. We go every other month.
They never got our reservation but seated us gladly anyway.
The food was ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!! I’m recommending Mara to everyone I know. I can’t wait to come back. It was truly amazing!!!
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
This was our first visit here, we were referred by a friend. The food was absolutely delicious and on point. The service was friendly and attentive. Our only issue was the length of time it took to receive the food. We placed our appetizer AND entree orders together. It took a while for the appetizer to come out (delicious), and it took even longer for the entrees (delicious again)....about an hour and 15 minutes from when the order was placed. I would have loved to stay for dessert and coffee, but I really didn't want to wait a long time again. That's my ONLY complaint. The food was GREAT!
Our meals were absolutely delicious. The only poor things about our experience was the service and there were no changing tables in the restroom for babies.
Nobody busing tables.Main course was ready and we still had dishes from appetizers .The appetizer took way to long.
If you have over 2-3 hours to kill I’d say why not. The food is good. It just took so long to come out. The waitress was awesome though!
I visited this place specifically after reading reviews. The first warning sign was that restaurant was close to empty on Friday evening. We waited close to hour and a half for our food to arrive. After it did I wished it didn’t- each dish was either over cooked or under cooked. Overall terrible and I question all of the 5 stars reviews
Great experience we will definitely be returning!
Empty due to weather. Food was very good. Priced right.
Though they didn't have the dish I ask for, the table attendance was very helpful with his recommendations, the food was delicious as well as my friend.
Consistent delicious meals with great service every single time I have been to Mara’s.
We came here because we were gifted a Groupon. The food and service were good but the prices were high. Probably won't be coming back. For 2 dinners, a half roasted chicken and the pasta carbonara, we had to add $43 to a $50 gift certificate. Salad is not included. We didn't even order appetizers which wasn't necessary because they bring a bruschetta to the table while you wait. That was very good also. If you get wine, be prepared to spend $7 for a "house" wine.
Beautiful interior, excellent food, great service!
Food was great! Very reasonably priced for fresh great tasting dishes! Service however was horrendous - it was delayed and inconsistent at most times. We had to nearly beg for water. Our food orders were correct but delivery to the table was inconsistent, delayed, and inconvenient.
It was a very enjoyable experience. The service was great. The food was excellent.
Something for everyone one on this classic, but unpretentious menu. Always a nice meal, well prepared, excellent value. We love this place, have come with a family group for Mother's Day and Easter dinners, with friends, and just for a Saturday date night.
Wonderful restaurant!! Great food, great service.....everyone is wonderful! We can't say enought about Mara's.....it's the place to go!
Lamb chops one side medium. Other side medium rare but not rare enough.
Excellent service and delicious food. Also the best Old Fashion cocktail.
Food was good, but had to wait a long time
We had a 8 pm reservation and didn’t get our meal until after 10.
I enjoy dining out and I love a good dinner! This was above and beyond. Treat yourself go there!! You will love ut
Mara’s is a wonderful spot! We can’t say enough about the delicious food and fabulous service! We are never disappointed.
We have dine at Maria's many times and each time had a wonderful dinner. It's a special gem that others need to check out. We will be back before Christmas again.
Food and service were very good. I would definitely go back.
As usual, the ambiance, food and service were great. However, we were taken back when the special we ordered was $70. I would have never ordered a steak and shrimp for that much money. This was not the waiters fault, but management for not having the servers say the price.
Unfortunately I cannot give this restaurant a good review. Although I think it as correctly priced for elegant dining, there was nothing elegant about our experience. Apparently they had a wedding scheduled in the main dining room the following day at 11 a.m. that they wished to set up for so they closed off the dining room at 8:30 p.m. (which were only told on arrival) and they seated us at a table (the ONLY table) in the bar area. It was definitely not adequate for 5 comfortably and literally had no room to place the bottle of wine or appetizers that we ordered. They quickly took a credit card for some reason to hold our tab?!? but they were not quick in getting our table served. Bread was brought to the table and when it was requested to assist with making the table less wobbly, our server said absolutely but never did. We felt very rushed however the attention to our requests and food order was not handled promptly. We were offered specials that were unavailable as well as regular items that were unavailable (after the order was placed). On top of this those items were still billed to our "tab" even though we did not receive and the credit card was run before we even looked at the bill. The owner while on-site did not appear interested that we had a reservation but were seated in the bar and that we had problems all they way through. There was not apology or even a complimentary discount or food item to try and appease our dissatisfaction. Although I enjoyed the food not everyone at our "table" was satisfied. Overall this was a very disappointing experience.
Service was great. Filet was just ok.
Cost atmosphere with friendly service. Food was fresh and well done. Prices were very affordable. A great spot convenient to major highways.
This was our third time at Maras, and once again it was a wonderful experience. Food and service were fantastic. We cannot wait to go back again.
Great service and delicious food!
Always a great meal. Service was excellent
Service was excellent, staff very attentive and obliging, chef provided necessary modifications preparing the dinner request very satisfied will return soon
Mara's proves that you do not have to go to New Brunswick to get good food. It is a local gem and we dine there frequently not only because it is a local establishment but also because the food is fresh, expertly prepared, delicious and served in a warm and comfortable setting. Servings are generous. The wait staff is friendly, attentive and responsive.
We see more and more tables full on weekends and it is clear that the positive reputation of the restaurant is growing and Mara's is emerging as a favorite in Central Jersey.
Food was great, service was great except we received 4 slices of the cake and over 50% of the cake was missing. I didn't notice it right away when it was given back to us bc they gave it to my son. I don't mind if the workers wanted some cake, that was not an issue, but ask. Don't take it upon yourself to help yourself.
