We made our reservation on Open Table and drove to the restaurant only to find it dark. It was closed for the season. No one had updated their status on Open Table.
Food and service was excellent. The table we were seated at was terrible. Very cold in this area. They had heaters on the floor, which did not help. We were not seated in the main dining area. We were surrounded by a lot of kids, diaper bags and high chairs. I do not believe that we would be going back.
This was our first time dining here and we were very satisfied with our food and service. The ambiance is very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.
Save your money! There can be no excuse for inedible food. There can be no excuse for sending to table mussels of which half failed to open in two separate dishes, perhaps the French fries floating atop we're meant to hide that fact. There can be no excuse for serving a $42 filet mignon well past it's prime and pork so tough a dinosaur would have difficulty chewing. Salmon with a slight nose, but still edible. It's shameful when a restaurant counts on folks not wanting to "make a scene' to dump their waste on the table and expect people to pay for it. Needless to say, once was too much.
Service was great! Food was good, not great. We started at the bar - real friendly cozy atmosphere and from what I saw a great bar menu. Next time will probably stay at the bar and eat.
Arrived early and received great service at the bar from Ann! The dining room is lovely and the service was very good. While the veal parmesan was one of the best ever, the pasta "gravy" left a lot to be desired. I would, however, come back as overall the meal was very good.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Marie Nicole's. The fish special was amazing, however the veal parm was dry and chewy. The server was excellent, but the wait for our meal was way too long. We would return again and hope that a few things are improved. Wonderful bar, drinks and bartenders!
We went for dinner as a family of 6. Everyone enhanced their meal. The food was excellent, service attentive and the ambiance was relaxing. Now keeping in mind this is of season. We hope to go again the next time we are at the shore. Hope the in - season experience is just as awesome.
Good, but could be better.
Food and service were good. However, though my fusilli dish was tasty, the pasta, which was disguised as such, were long and tubular--not what I know fusilli to be. This "new" fusilli, was heavier pasta than I expected and made a very good meal, heavier than it needed to be.
Also, for a restaurant which does pride itself on its wine list, to not list wines by the glass on its wine list is a serious omission.
Expensive for food that was not outstanding. Veal dish had too much breading, was $42 and meals don't even include a salad. A Caesar salad was $12 and a glass of house wine was $12. Our waiter was attentive and amicable but that doesn't make up for the food pricing. We don't mind an expensive meal when it is really good
EVERY THING ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE WAS VERY POSITIVE.
We visited Marie Nicole's for the first time this past Sunday night. The restaurant specializes in martinis and we tried the peachy peach. It was very tasty for summer. The food was delicious. Nice variety of choices- seafood, pork, lamb and pasta. The restaurant is a little pricey and sedate so children would not be a good plan.
Was pleasantly surprised by the food since this restaurant replaced one of my favorites in Avalon. Was hoping they would keep the white cranberry cosmos. Oh,well. Some reviews complained about the prices and the waiter did include the price in their descriptions of the specials. However, this is the shore, people, and there was a fixed prix meal on the menu. Will definitely plan on another visit before they close for the season.
wrote detailed review on yelp. was hoping for a nice meal but kitchen didn't cook filet as ordered; incorrect dish was brought for my husband. drink prices were high and cost of bill was very high for the meal with no mention of apology for dinner mishap. would expect more for this price tag!
We all thought the salad was wilted and overdressed and we mentioned it to the waiter and nobody cared
