Staff is very service oriented. The head chef accommodated our request regarding the salad as well as the main courses which is unusual for a dinner buffet. It is a lot of fun to eat a great buffet in a leisurely manner while watching harness racing. The PINK restaurant is great value and we highly recommend the restaurant.

We had a reservation for pink, but it was closed. We were moved to Trotters, but I definitely prefer Pink. The food was cold and not enjoyable.

Having Sheryl & Dawn overseer the reservations was definitely a good decision.
They helped make our stay more enjoyable.
Also with the help of Josh & the new waiter that took care of us...& it was his first day, transferring from food services.
Thanks all!

Horrific buffet, with sullen servers. 1 single bartender for the entire bar and service of the whole restaurant. Virtually no table service. Stay far away from this mess! I love horse racing but this restaurant at the Meadowlands is a true disaster!

Need more waiters on a Saturday night. Drinks took forever, over 1/2 hr . Waiter was slammed. Did the best he could. Desserts do not come out until 8:00 pm. Ridiculous. Most people are there for the race. We wanted to go outside so I left with no dessert.

The food was good but there wasn’t a big selection for a buffet. For $50 a person there should be way more options especially for people that cannot eat half the stuff they have. There was only one potato option and the one pasta dish they had was very spicy.

Because there was just two of us , we were seated at one of the small tables against the wall on the bottom level
We could only view the backstretch and because the tv was on the wall we had to almost turn 90 degrees to see it
I think the table for 2 should be on the second level up against the front wall or even eliminate them

I do not believe that anyone would want to eat here unless they are there strictly for the racetrack. You are squeezed in like sardines and there are no window treatments on the floor to ceiling windows. You are literally blinded by the sun until it goes down in the early evening. Good thing I remembered and brought my sun glasses. There was a buffet dinner that evening because the restaurant was very crowded for the Pacers. The line was very long because you were not allowed to serve yourself. The staff was very particular about the amount they would serve you forcing you to return and wait on line once again. The food is marginal at best and they were very slow to refill the empty chafing dishes.

Great spot to watch the races at the New Meadowlands Racetrack. Could of been better if more of the horses I bet had actually won but what can you do. Food is buffet style had no problems
with the food or service.

We had a good experience at Pink, however, the seating for 2 people was too close to other large tables (you are literally dining with other people) , and they shoved a LCD screen TV on the wall right next to your elbow so you could not see the screen. Poor planning. The food was tasty and the service was decent.

We arrived a few minutes early and were seated immediately. I ordered a dirty martini which was not great in a glass that had more spots than a dalmatian! The food was mediocre at best. We finished eating an wanted dessert. We get up and the dessert table was empty, disappointing! Should have listened to most of the reviews and got a hot dog and pretzel at the stand.

Been here a couple times before, always had a great time! This time however, we were sat at a table right next to the buffet which was very noisy and crowded the entire night! Wouldn’t recommend that table! It’s a shame, we were really looking forward to spending that time with our friends but couldn’t enjoy each other because of the crowds around our table.

Food was good for the value; however, the service was almost not there. The waiter took our drink order but didn't know what kind of martinis the bar had. He came back when he asked the bartender and we ordered. After that we didn't see him again until hours later when he gave us the bill. We asked him for coffee around the last race and he forgot. We saw him when he tried to get the check and we had to ask again. 4 coffees came, warm, old and nasty tasting. After waiting for the coffee we wind up leaving them on the table.

Pink was a good dining option for a busy night at the Meadowlands since the
Belmont stakes drew a crowd there. I made reservations, however for two people dining the seating was not the best. I like to sit next to my guy to look over the program not across from him. The TV screen at a table for two was not situated for good viewing of the races. I was told that these were the only seats available, as they don't have any seating near the window for couples only for parties of 2+. The food for the most part was good, chicken, beef, mixed vegetables however the tuna tartare was not. Be selective when choosing what to put on your plate! There was a good selection of desserts. The service overall was very good in both clearing the table of dishes and serving beverages during the course of the evening.

I came for the racetrack and for the getting away from watching the race at home. The food buffet is much smaller than it was at Pegasus. That's the only drawback. I enjoy being able to park my own car and not having to be forced to use valet like what I experienced at Pegasus side

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.
