I eat out a lot, and this was extremely poor food. Everything was cold and tasteless, the steak couldn’t be cut, the dessert was awful. I would rate Pink two levels below diner food, at 50.00 per head with tip.

We were a party of 10 and everyone enjoyed themselves. The overall experience was very good and I would return. When arriving the service was good but as we ate it seemed as though the staff disappeared. Plates kept piling up and there was little attention paid to us. I wouldn't have minded if it was a 19.99 buffet and I would have tipped accordingly, but at 39.99 a head with a 21% tip automatically put on the bill, I felt a little ripped off. I wouldn't let that ruin a good time but I think they should be more like waiters, servicing you then buss boys clearing once in awhile.

Pink is our best place to go for a good time , best food probably in New Jersey. The Restaurant is spotless the service is great, the waiters can't do enough for you. The Chef is outstanding always making sure the buffet is full, he takes his time to explain everything in the buffet. He walks around and speaks with his customers making sure they are enjoying the night. He makes the atmosphere very comfortable always very professional. Highly recommend and will be going back. Great time !

I made a reservation months in advanced. They called the day of to try to get me to cancel, how rude. Then, I go see the hostess who couldn't be any less friendly. All I said for "Griffin party of 2." She about cut my head off telling me and she wasn't going to seat me without a reservation. I had one and talked to you on the phone today, so please sear me and stop being combative and rude like everyone at the Meadowlands and the whole area seem to be. Then, my seat was not what I asked for. On my reservation and the ticket for my waitress placed on the table I said I wanted a seat on the glass to be able to see the track. Couldn't have been a worse seat couldn't see anything without standing up and moving in front of others to see the track. People who just walked in during living racing got the same seat as me. I made a reservation and a request for a reason! The people around me were rude even unplugging the televisions, so it was harder to see multiple tracks. They didn't even like racing, why are you there? My seat was also in the way for all the waitstaff. The buffet food was okay, but too expensive for the price. Should be about half of what it is. I liked it better a few years ago when Pink did the 3 course meal options. The dessert cookies were disgusting hard as a rock, literally sounded like silverware when I hit them on my plate. Meadowlands needs to find nice people to woke here or they will go under. The people at Saratoga Harness are soooo nice and friendly. If you talk to their manager Patrick Griffen he always helps and is a great guy.

The only negative I have consistently run into at Pink every time I have dined here is the greeter/hostess that sits behind the desk named Dawn. She treats new and non-regulars, especially if you are a party of 2, like second class citizens. You will end up with the worst table despite reservations and special requests, and wait to be seated , while a party of two of regulars who comes after you , as it has been observed, will be seated by her at a table of four with premium viewing, after slipping money in her hand. You then have to complain and at times speak to a manager in order to get a better seat. If you can get past that aggravation, on a positive note, the lady who seats you, the people who serve the buffet, wait staff ( especially Darlene and Jacqueline) , the chef, and the manager (Edgar), are fantastic. If not for them, and the delicious food, we would never be back. I have suggested this place to many of my friends who have encountered the same problem with this woman. Some have not gone back since.

The place was very clean. The employees was very helpful. The food on buffet was seasoned perfectly. It also had a variety of items that catered to my vegan friend. The atmosphere was pleasant and I felt like the tables was spaced out perfectly. Highly recommendable and will be back again.

04/11/17 Updated Review After posting my prior review the Chef from Pink contacted me and invited my wife and I back to the restaurant to give them another chance,We went this past Saturday and let me say this is the Pink Restaurant we know and love the Chef met us at the table and apologized again for the bad service and the way we were treated on our prior visit and everyone one there made sure that this visit was what we have come to expect from this restaurant great service and very friendly people
GREAT JOB CHEF AND YOUR STAFF THIS WAS A FANTASTIC EVENING FOR MY WIFE AND I WE CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK

My Wife and I ate in Pink this past Saturday night first let me say we have eaten there before and not encountered what we encountered this Past Saturday March 10th.


We received better attention from our hostess walking around that we did our actual waitress we were seated at table for two against the wall and the party next two us they added a couple chairs to there party and made us feel like sardines.

Our waitress was almost non existent to our table but was handling the larger tables just fine.

She gave us our drink order which I must say the glasses looked smaller than any other time we had ordered them in Pink .we could not even get our water glasses refilled unless the hostess walked by and we never got a second cup of coffee. And we had to have our hostess track down our waitress to get our check but I must say the minute I put my card in she was right there

This was certainly not what we expect for the price of this buffet especially when we drive from Nashua NH to E Rutherford for a nice evening out

Pink is the new buffet at the Meadowlands sports arena/ racetrack. it replaces Pegasus which was also a buffet but much larger with great choices and food in an elegant setting with views of the horse racing. Pink has great views but the food and service weren't great . Some of the food was sub par to me but about what you'd expect at an average buffet. The cost here is $39.99 pp. However we had a fun night out with friends and enjoyed the racetrack. The service while polite and friendly- was not good because we had piles of plates and garbage that I had to move myself in order for the 4 of us to enjoy sitting there.

We enjoyed a delicious well balanced buffet dinner, (something for everyone , great selection of food). Aside from good food and good and friendly and attentive service, we were able to be entertained with live horse racing.
We had excellent viewing seats. The chef came by all the tables and introduced himself and
welcomed the guests. We had eaten at the track many times in the past but the food was always just fair. The meal that we had this time was really impressive.
Will definitely go back again in the near future and do recommend Pink for an evening of good food and fun.

I have been coming to the meadowlands for more than 15 years. The hostess that works in pink collects money from people so they can be seated by the finish line . In other words if you dont give her money she will seat you in a area that is no fun to be. Few weeks ago was this couple in front of me without reservations but the man give her 20 dollars and all of the sudden she has an available table for them. I was next without reservations too but i didnt give her any money, so she look at me and told, no open table. The person behind me didnt have a reservation either but he gave the hostess money and she gave him a table. That is soooo unethical. You should fire that hostess, she is unfriendly and nasty. I go to the meadowlands pretty often, once a week and i rather sit in the second floor where Paula the waitress is super nice . I order my meals thru her and is always great . I hope that next time i make reservations at pink that hostess isnt there anymore. So unethical taking money from people to get a table, hopefully the manager do something about it.

Great place for dinner and entertainment. Buffet is amazing for such a reasonable price . The Executive chef was such a nice guy he came out to greet us at end of the night and asked us how the food was . The horse racing is the cherry on top, makes for such a great night out!

I brought my husband there for an evening of dining and fun for his birthday; neither of us had ever been to a race. The experience exceeded my expectations! The food was quite delicious(everything!!) and the staff very friendly and accomodating. Special kudos to the Master chef; my husband was blown away when he came over to our table to greet us! Very memorable evening and we will be sure to visit again next time we're in E. Rutherford, N.J!!
