Perfect For:
  • Bar Seating
  • Neighborhood Gem
  • Great for Lunch
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.

This was our first visit to Nero's. The wait staff was attentive and our server very helpful in navigating the menu and specials. Pan seared tuna and octopus appetizers were very good as was the swordfish special and seared scallops over vegetable hash entrees. We will definitely be back.

Nero’s is the best. For anything from seafood to steakhouse to Italian, they do it right. Love the short rib special on Fridays and chicken Nero’s with sausage and peppers. If you like oysters, clams and shrimp, their raw bar is superb! The staff are friendly and attentive.

Steaks were well-prepared and cooked perfectly to request. Menu a bit shy in non-steak lunch entrees. Cocktail prep and presentation were excellent. This seems like a popular place for friends having lunch.

Excellent service. They get to know their regular customers well and accommodate any request. Drinks are large and excellent. We love the food which is very good but not extremely pricey. Lobster risotto had a lot of large chunks of lobster. Always found that their plates have large portions of meat or fish. Desserts are also very good. Best thing however is the service. They have people on the floor that just make sure that you have everything you want. They don't just say: "is everything okay?" They ask you about yourself, make sure that the service is fast without rushing you and help the servers out to make sure you are very satisfied. We have been going for years and it is one of our favorite places.

This restaurant is consistently good for food and service. We always enjoy the Nero's special chopped salad and the Burrata appetizer. My daughter's filet mignon was cooked perfectly and delicious. My veal parmigiana was a little tough but still good. My husband enjoyed his Sesame Tuna entree. The brownie ice cream dessert was delicious too.

Love the food as always but this was the first time I’ve been here where the waiter seemed to rush us and didn’t even offer us dessert. I had to ask. And then he actually walked out of the restaurant even before us. Disappointed in the service this time.

Beautiful atmosphere and friendly waiters. Held a holiday lunch and everyone was very happy with the food. That being said, it was a busy day and the service was a little slow. Still, an overall great place for a business meal or date. Worth a visit.

I had a delightful lunch at Nero's with a friend. The food was delicious, the service was good and the ambiance delightful. We were able to sit and talk without wait staff hovering over us anxious for us to leave to turn over the table. Everyone was courteous and friendly. And, to make the experience even better, I inadvertently left my credit card and the restaurant called my home to tell me that they had the card and it was held for me at the bar. Having used OpenTable, my phone number was available to them. I really appreciated the curtesy call.
