What a far cry from the old trackside and Pegasus restaurants at the old location. Staff so non-energetic. Depressing atmosphere

With respecting the carving station, you could only get meat very rare. It was the only way it was offered.

We were put in Trotters Restaurant which was filled to capacity! It was very crowded, felt like people were sitting on top of each other. Food was better in Pink. Was told the menu was the same, but not so.

Straight away we were made to feel very welcome and were given a table right at the window with great views of the track. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff were great. It was a steak carvery buffet style and the food overall was fantastic. The chef even came out later on to ask the different tables how the food was which was a great touch. He seemed like the type of guy that if anyone had any minor complaints he would take it on board and look to given reasons or improve. No issues from us though and would certainly be somewhere we would attend again.

The staff was great and the best thing was it was a buffet served by gloved staff and not everyone helping themselves. I am looking forward to our next trip to Pink. Keep up the good work by the Meadowlands race track in hiring a tremendous chef and staff.

The venue is nice and the quality of the food is excellent. The service could be better and I think it is because you might need more help. The people were very nice and professional. I would recommend Pink to others.

Not necessarily for a dining experience The way the dining was promoted I thought it was going to be a nicer experience in sense where the ambience would not look like a sports center . Of course is like a race track venue - but the dining just seem so much more to it online

I spoke to the chef regarding my food allergies (celiac & soy) as I had indicated in my reservation. There were only a few items I could eat (salad) On the buffet so the chef said he would prepare some items gluten and soy free for me. However he never came back and I ate salad that cost $40.

The waitress was finding water glass's and silverware to set in front of us. Food was pretty good but they ran out of shrimp that was on the menu. For two people at the table who didn't eat meat the shrimp was important protein. Other then that we still had fun so I would recommend it to a friend.

Loved the waitress Serv is of trackside but the buffet style was fine. The food selection was sweet and the food was excellent. It was nice to be in a sort of private setting. Will definitely be back.

When we arrived (2 of us) they informed us they had no tables for 2 and we had to sit in either a fold down chair by the window or living room chair at a ledge not even big enough to comfortably hold our plates. Food was sub-par, with hardly 1/4th the selection that Pink usually has. In addition no server except for one who was there to be the meat carver. Hardly any desserts. And they charged the same price as if we were at Pink. I would be prone to recommending Pink but certainly not Trotters.

I was told in advance that there weren't enough reservations on a Sat. evening for the dining room to open. Instead the buffet would be served in an a club called Trotters. When I arrived I was told it was too busy for me to be seated at a table. Instead,I had the option of sitting at the bar or at a seat with a counter where I could eat and watch the races. I understand I was by myself but no table availability when I was told it was too slow to open the dining room? Anyway, I opted for the seat with the counter. The seat was very comfortable and eating on the small counter was fine. The buffet was average to very good depending on what you ate. The service was outstanding and very attentive and friendly. The price was fair considering it's an all night affair for purposes of racing. The seating was trackside and there where many well situated TV's for simulcast and sporting events. If your primary objective is to watch racing I would say it was a worthwhile and highly enjoyable experience.

CHEF DENNIS presented us with a wonderful selection of salads, meats, pastas, potatoes and veggies topped off by the always terrific dessert bar. Additionally, his concerns for his customers' satisfaction was top-notch. Looking forward to my next dining experience at PINK. HARRY SNYDER, more than satisfied customer.

Salads and desserts were fine. Not worth 40/person. Waiter was not very responsive. Didn't refill wife's soda or either of our coffees. Took lemon (used for water) away with dinner plates when we were still drinking water.
