Steakhouse
Now celebrating its 40th year, Nero's Grille continues to be one of north-Jersey's most popular dining scenes. We combine the highest quality, freshest ingredients with a comfortable, familiar atmosphere and service that makes you feel like one of the family. Nero's has become the area's place to see and be seen. Three separate dining rooms, and outdoor patio dining as climate permits, provide a warm, unpretentious intimacy in which to enjoy our high-quality, moderately-priced American and Italian fare, while the large bar area buzzes with the energy of friends gathering over a favorite martini or a glass of wine from Nero's award-winning list. Private rooms are also available, and our banquet staff is noted for making special events 'extra special.' After four decades, the entire Nero's family continues to take enormous pride in offering our guests, new and old, a gracious welcome, a terrific meal, and our sincere appreciation.

As usual, this classic restaurant continues the high standard. Food always prepared well and served appropriately. Hard to stump the mixologists at the full service bar. Great experience at a popular venue.

Rating would have been higher except for table next to us had a 15 plus minute phone call on a speakerphone. We did mention to someone who was walking by and asked how everything was, but nothing was done and the call continued. I don't blame the restaurant but given the knowledge that this was going on, I do believe she could have been asked to continue her call outside or away from the table. It was very disturbing during that time to hear both her side of the conversation and the person talking that was on speaker.

I was out with a friend for lunch and it was lovely. The waiter was great and the food, good. I've been frequenting Nero's more often and it's come to be my "go to" place.

As usual, our meal at Nero's was fabulous! This is a restaurant that is so consistent in all aspects of the dining experience, from food, to service, to drinks; some places are hit or miss, depending on the night of the week, who's doing the food prep, or who is serving, but not Nero's. Service is always spot on and friendly, and the food is served at the perfect temperature and cooked just right.
We started with some raw bar appys like shrimp and crabmeat cocktails, as well as a salad, clam bar pizza, the short ribs on latkas, and clams casino. Each was excellent. For our entrees, some of us had the lobster buccatini, and unllke other places, Nero's doesn't skimp on the lobster meat. We also had the center cut veal chop and the petite filet mignon. All were outstanding. Having consumed so much deliciousness, we left no room for dessert.

We have enjoyed Nero’s for it’s quality food and service, and it’s (usually) safe outdoor dining during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our most recent experience, however, felt unsafe due entirely to a large table of 10-12 women seated next to us. Unmasked, these women rotated about, standing right by our table, conducting loud conversations. This proceeded, uninterrupted, during our entire dining time. These women were oblivious to the dirty looks rendered their way, and unfortunately, the restaurant did nothing to halt this unsafe behavior. The restaurant should place large parties of more than four people a greater distance away from other diners, due to the increased risk of selfish behaviors a mob can generate.

We ate at Nero's for Valentine's Day and it was perfect. Our table outside was toasty warm, as usual, due to two powerful heaters for just our table, even though the temperature was close to freezing. The food and the drinks were delicious, and the service attentive. This is the best restaurant around this winter.

This was our first time at this restaurant, and we were very happy with everything about it. The menu offered a nice variety of food and the food was prepared very well. We went on a Wednesday evening, and I think there were only two tables occupied. The restaurant and service was very nice, and we will be back

Our favorite restaurant currently. They do the BEST job of keeping us safely outside (well-spaced tables) AND warm (two heaters per table). The food, drinks and service are also terrific. Wonderful.
