We had a fantastic meal!! Our server Laura made our experience even better. Laura was very knowledgeable about the menu and wines and provided supreme service. Our food was some of the best we had in a long time! This little gem is worth the drive from wherever you are!

We love 618! Great food- nice variety on the menu. Met Matt the owner and he’s super friendly. Felicity was our bartender and waitress and super attentive. High quality food in a great atmosphere. Our go to for date nights and special celebrations. I had filet mignon and could have cut it with a butter knife; the whipped potatoes are addictive; my husband had the pork chop and raved about it. The bib salad with thyme roasted apples is a treat!

Have visited this wonderful restaurant with friends and family many, many times. The dishes created by Executive Chef “Chris” are unique and flavorful. While theentire staff is personable and attentive, this past Saturday night my brother and I were served by Liz. What a delightful young lady! She seemed to know what we needed before we asked for it. I know right! Friendly and knowledgeable, especially on the beer selections. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit this local gem, you really need to!!!

We loved our dining experience. I had the short rib and my husband had the filet mignon. Both were delicious. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back soon. Our waitress Jen was superb. Can't say enough how much we loved it.

I will NEVER dine here again. The ratings are misleading on here. My lobster ravioli and it's sauce was cold, but the 3 shrimps on top were hot. The fastest thing that came to the table was the check. Do NOT eat here if you are or are dining with a person of color. At one point, the waitstaff all came out to stare at our table, as we were the only ethnic people in there. I felt totally uncomfortable and our waitress barely spoke with us. I gulped down my food and nearly ran out of the door. This food is totally overpriced. It was so dark that the elderly diners could not read their menus.

Disappointing from a price point perspective for a meal that I thought was upscaled bar food. The “whipped” potatoes tasted like boxed potatoes. Ambiance was a bit too dark which made it difficult to read the menu. No competition for other restaurants in the heart of downtown Freehold.

My husband and I went for my birthday dinner and had a great night. We were looking for a new place to go and 618 got great reviews, so we gave it a try. On Wednesdays, they have half priced bottles of wine, so we got a nice bottle for a very reasonable price. The regular prices of a lot of their wine are very reasonable anyway, they have plenty of wines in the $30 price range. We ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizer that was very good. I got the cajun shrimp and grits and my husband got the roasted chicken. We were both very happy with our meals, they were delicious. We didn't have any dessert, so cannot comment on that. Overall it was a great evening, great service, great atmosphere. We will be back.

The service and management were quite pleasant and accommodating. The food was very good, although my husband didn’t care for the sauce on his short ribs because it was too sweet. The manager came over immediately and replaced his dish with one that had no sauce on it. My skirt steak was excellent as was the organic Bibb salad which we shared. We would definitely return, but ask to be seated in the bar area instead of the main dining room, which we found to be too noisy for our taste.

We had a fabulous meal. We ate early-around 5:00 as we enjoy that quiet hour. I had the lobster and saffron ravioli and my husband had the bronzino. Both were cooked to perfection. The sticky toffee cake and cappuccinos were excellent as well.
Lovely ambiance and attentive service. The bar area is set away from the main dining space which we thought was great. 618 is a restaurant that will become one of our main dining options.

I love the food here. Steak, Shrimp and Grits, Stuffed Poblano all great! However unless you tell them not to put your dinner order in until you finish your appetizer, they take your app and replace it with dinner. I go out to eat to take my time and enjoy my meal. Way too rushed. Noisy too.

Delicious dinner with friends that had never been to this 5 star restaurant.

Delighted with the 618 salad, never had it before and it was better than I expected.

Short rib was very good, as was Tuna Poke. Halibut was wonderful. Desserts were very good, but I think a bit overpriced.
