After a seeing a Broadway play we decided to head home rather than stay in the City to celebrate our anniversary. Great decision- the food at 618 never disappoints but at this particular visit they went over and above to seat us at window table (#14-now our favorite) and then checking on us to make sure everything was to our liking. We ended the meal with a delicious dessert (complete with sparklers) and a nice memory of our special day.

Specials were interesting. I had the blue fin tuna It was certainly sushi grade and prepared perfectly. My wife had the short rib. It was falling apart tender.
Service seemed a little rushed even though we asked to slow the pace. Next time I'll hold off on ordering the main course until after the apps are served. Drinks were tasty, my wife and daughter seemed to enjoy their concoctions from the specialty drink list.
There will be a next time.

Our waitress Jenna offered great assistance with our dining choices . She and the other wait staff were all very attentive to our every need. Food and drinks were excellent with the only exception being the green beans that were not prepared well at all. Otherwise everything else was exceptional. The entire staff was very friendly and professional.

This was my first time going to 618, but I am sure it will not be the last. Service was excellent and our server was very attentive. The menu is pretty extensive and we had difficulty deciding what to order since there were so many attractive options. We ultimately ordered the stuffed mushrooms and the jerk chicken stuffed poblano for appetizer. Both were very tasty, and the poblano was very spicy, which I liked. For our entrees, we ordered the lobster ravioli and the short ribs. The ravioli was phenomenal, and the short ribs were tender and delectable. I highly recommend 618 restaurant.

Great find in Freehold. Food is delicious and service is spot on - very attentive! Brussel sprout Caesar salad is delicious. Most anything ordered will be excellent. Just ask about the spiciness of some dishes.

Entrees were good, but we were kind of rushed with our cocktails. Our server didn’t give us a chance to enjoy them. Right after she brought them, she took our appetizer order and then dinner order. I felt I shouldn’t have had to tell her to slow it down a bit. We like fine dining where we never feel that way. It was get them in, get them out. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

We waited 20 minutes after being seated for a waitress to come over and greet us! We were compensated with free dessert though and it was delicious! Food is good but portions are small and it’s a bit pricey.

We really enjoyed our meal, everything was delicious and perfectly prepared.

Our waitress was very attentive and enthusiastic, but we felt a bit rushed at times.

The main room was large with nice decor, and although it was crowded there was enough elbow room between tables.
It got more bustling as the night went on, which made it hard to hear one of our table-mates, but we chalked that up to the two large parties in the private rooms.

Would recommend to family\friends and will definitely go back.

It was our first time dining here. We were told that 618 was a very nice place to eat and we were not disappointed. We were pleasantly surprised with the menu selections. I had the pork chops and my wife had the salmon for main entrees. The plate presentations were great and the taste and quality of the meal itself was outstanding. Our waitress, Liz, was very attentive and smiled throughout our meal. If I were to look for anything negative, it would be the noise level was a bit too loud, but who cared. Overall, this was an enjoyable experience and I will certainly recommend 618 to others.

Amazing! The food and drinks were great and perfectly paired. The combination of flavors are exceptional, as you can taste the love and care put into the preparation of every dish.

The ambiance and service was great, as everyone was pleasant and the decor offers a relaxing atmosphere and feel.

Definitely a gem and well worth our hour drive.

Planning to host my intimate wedding here in the Fall. This definitely sealed the deal.

As usual, our experience at 618 was excellent. The food was excellent, as was the service and the ambience. My wife got the Bronzino, while I got the short ribs. Both were excellent. For dessert, the Chocolate Decadence is to die for.

All in all, 618 is our go-to restaurant for special occasions.

Food was adequate and service good, but it seems that we paid more than the food and restaurant were worth. I was there earlier for a shower and was really pleased, but this three-person dinner didn't quite do it for us.

Have been to this restaurant a number of times and always a good experience. The food has always been excellent and each server we have had has been friendly, attentive and nice to speak with. Can be a bit loud but the food and staff make up for that. Suggest they eliminate the background music except in bar area.

First visit to 618, on a Wednesday evening. Menu and specials were all very good. The only thing that could be improved was that the apps could have been a little hotter. Service was good and food dropped off by a runner so it was a while before it was checked. The chicken poblano was very good. It was a little spicy but the server told us that when we ordered. Also the meatballs were also excellent. As a note this night the wines were discounted, and were a tremendous value almost at liquor store prices. We had steaks, the skirt steak was very flavorful and tender, and also the LaFreida bone in fillet, which was amazing. The waffle desert was also phenimenal. I would highly recommend.
