Jason served us. He was attentive and was formal but not stuffy... the perfect combination. He could only be described as a great waiter.

We had a great bottle of wine from their wine list. A list that I find very well priced in comparison to the area restaurants with similar lists.

The Bibb salad with goat cheese and pickled onions may be my favorite salad anywhere. The steak special (NY Strip) was amazing with a side of asparagus and mushroom topped polenta. Cooked to a perfect medium rare and the taste was that of a steak lovers steak. Well worth the $59 price for the dish as it was steak house quality.

My wife had the butternut squash ravioli and raved about them.

Great meal, great service.

The Valentine's Day Wine Pairing menu had many wonderful selections to choose from with each course, and all of our choices met the high expectations. Noisier than usual, but still a marvelous experience.

First time at this establishment 618. It is by far One of the better restaurants I have been to in a long time. We were provided with a tasting menu for Valentines and it was excellent. Sometimes I’m a little skeptical with theses types of menus but not at 618. Service was also fantastic. Crystal our server was terrific. She was pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive. I could not have asked for a more perfect evening. Most definitely recommended

Went to 618 for Valentine’s Day, we are never crazy about fixed menus for special occasions like this but 618 is always very good. Well they didn’t disappoint, service was spot on, food was unbelievable the flavors they knocked It out of the park. All tables had white linen table clothes with rose pedals on every table. They know how to take care of customers. I’ll definitely be back.

Casual and comfortable setting with a creative menu, great service, and one amazing hostess. It’s been a long time since a hostess can add so much to a dining experience. We tried a few items based on her input and she’s a joy to interact with. It’s not often I think to even comment on something like this, but she’s top notch.

This restaurant is just a great all around place. Friendly service at the bar too. The gentleman was simply fantastic.

If you want to try something different, especially for NJ, order the Shrimp & Grits as an appetizer or even main entree. It was wonderful.

We have come here several times over the last few months, including New Years Eve and have not had a bad meal. Service is always well timed there when you need them, but not obtrusive.

Although we waited 20 minutes after our reservation, we sat in the bar area and had a cocktail. Bartenders were friendly and a nice crowd.

Food was delicious and service was really good. My wife had Bronzino and said was one of best she's ever had. I had chicken and arugula which was very tasty as well. Reasonably priced and definitely will return.

We recently dined at 618 and can’t rave enough about the food, service, ambiance, and overall experience. We arrived before our table was ready so headed to the bar and tried some of the cocktail specials- all were delicious! Bartenders were very friendly. Once our table was ready, our waiter Rick came right over and guided us through an incredible meal- apps (you must try the pork belly!) entrees (both men had the special 21 day aged steak, which they practically licked the plate clean. I had the short ribs which was tender, pull apart with a fork, delicious) and dessert (highly recommend the toffee cake)! We were treated like family and certainly plan to return soon. Shout out again to our server Rick who was absolutely wonderful. Can’t wait to return!

My family dined at 618 on Friday, 2 February 2019. This was another outstanding dinner! We were greeted by a very nice hostess (didn’t get her name) and our server was Desiree. She took very good care of us the entire evening. Our wines, appetizers and entrees were all excellent (top notch as usual) but Desiree made our night even better. We’ll be back soon and hope to have the pleasure of Desiree’s company again!

The experience started with Deanna who greeted my wife and I with a smile. She was very gracious and warm. She immediately sat us and said that she hopes we enjoy the dinner. Enter Liz. OMG what can I say. Liz was very knowledgeable with the menu, even with her personal food restrictions she gave us some suggestions. Not just suggestions, but WHY she feels that those would be good. We listened and true to her work Liz was spot on. The food was great. The staff was even better. I felt like I was surrounded by family and was very comfortable. Deanna and Liz are the epitome of what I would look for in dinning staff. Not only does my hat go off to those two but Matthew has done above and beyond in hiring and training his staff. I cannot wait to go back.

Fantastic experience that started with two appetizers: roasted poblano, and mac & cheese! After the apps we enjoyed short ribs, and the black bass special, both were fantastic. The food is always outstanding, but the service is what makes it a truly enjoyable experience!

Bravo 618!

Service was fantastic!! Yet the food was mediocre at best. Not much flavor. 618 has great potential to being a high end restaurant which the prices reflect but the food doesn’t!! Hopefully they can turn things around.

It was our first time dining at 618. We loved the ambiance and the menu sounded wonderful. We asked for a table in the bar area so the noise level was a little higher but to be expected. Tables were spaced nicely so you didn’t feel at all crowded. The service was attentive and friendly. Our one complaint regarding service was the time it took to get our drinks. We had already almost finished our appetizers before bar drinks arrived. We loved the Tuna Poke app but wish there were one or two more wonton chips to go with the generous portion of tuna! Our entrees were good but not as good as we had hoped for. We will definitely return and try some other menu selections!

Sadly, the food on this recent visit was not been nearly as good as when we were there during the Spring of 2018. Not sure if it was an off night in the kitchen, but I would be hesitant to go back with the pricing what it is, and chance another mediocre meal.
