The service at this restaurant was fantastic, the hostess, our waitress, the manager and even the bussing staff. We were very pleased with our meal and cocktails and it is very child friendly!

Birthday dinner and it was delicious! The appetizers were plenty to share. The lobster ravioli, short rib, and shrimp and grits were to die for. We brought a birthday cake and 618 did not charge a fee to serve. Thank you for a great dinner!

How did I not go here before last night? Everything about 618 is top notch including our server Justine. She was friendly, knowledgeable and beyond efficient. Our salads came from local greenhouse and my green goddess dressing was perfect in taste and consistency. I had the mongolian cod with edamame dumplings! When did you see that on a menu last?? My husband had the most succulent pork chop with farro. Found out they got it so moist and tender by brining it. Great wine selection and I am picky about that! Not just your cliche names but boutique wineries I find to be more unique and special. The atmosphere was warm and cozy and did I mention the bread is excellent? That is how I first judge a restaurant, if they bring me lousy doughy bread it's all over. Their bread has a nice crust and homemade taste with just a touch of sea salt. This is on the top of my list, it did not disappoint in any aspect.

Amazing food and service. Could not ask for a better experience in celebrating my husbands birthday belatedly. With food allergies and food restrictions among the three of us, we had no ussues finding something we could all enjoy. I had the cabernet braised beef short ribs; my husband had the blackberry fig glazed pork chop and my daughter the roast chicken. Everything was cooked to perfection. Great wine list too. Dessert was a surprise! They added a great sparkler to my husbands gelato. Cannot say enough good things. We will be back!

Fantastic place! We celebrate my son birthday.
Food was so delicious , they have many options for us, me being gluten free and my daughter vegan and my husband only eats grass fed beef that’s why we choose this restaurant over and over.

The service was amazing. Jacqueline was our waitress. The food was outstanding. The pork belly is highly recommended. The blue cheese olives in the martini's were great. chimichurri steak is a must. It was our first and will not be our last. Picked this restaurant because of the reviews and it clearly explains why.

Dining at 618 is certainly a great dining experience. You are warmly welcomed upon arrival, the wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Our server offered menu suggestions that you knew she had personally tried. The menu offers a wide array of delicious options. We have dined at 618 a few times, and have always been impressed with everything. Highly recommend.

Wow! Terrific new find in Freehold for us first-timers. Location is a bit odd, set back off of Rt. 33, which is why we never stopped by before. Reserved lunch today and were seated in excellent bar area. Our server, Bianca, was just outstanding. Great recommendations, explained dishes and flavor profiles very well. Offered drink samples. Food was outstanding as well. Started with shared butternut squash ravioli in a well executed brown butter sauce. Followed by buttermilk brine fried chicken sandwich (with hand-cut fries!) and pappardelle bolognese. Bolognese is one of my go-to dishes at new places. This one was among my top two. Pork, veal and pancetta mix was incredibly flavorful. Each entree was thoroughly enjoyed, and will be ordered again. Surprise of the day was a Brûlée rice pudding for dessert!! Wow. Who would have thought? My wife and I both commented that the servers really knew their stuff and really seemed excited to be associated with this restaurant. What else do you need to know? Definitely planning on, and looking forward to, a return visit. Soon. What a great find!

We very much enjoyed our Valentine's Day meal! The highlight for me was the sauces. The truffle pasta pouches lacked the truffle flavor but made up for it with the kale-sunflower pesto. The halibut could have been slightly less cooked but the vanilla-rum-butter and sweet potato-chipotle sauces were outstanding. The highlight of the black cherry- ricotta cheesecake was by far the crust and the mango sauce. Overall, a very enjoyable meal at a good value!

Another visit , another great night. Fixed price menu for Valentine’s Day was awesome although very hard to pick from all of the great choices. This is my 8th visit and they never disappoint

Can’t wait till next Friday. Date night and a visit to 618

I am very picky and I am usually able to identify a least one problem but at 618 I can never find anything wrong

Resturant is spotless, clean bathrooms and great service. Prices are above average but worth every penny and then some.

In all the years that we’ve been going we have never had a bad meal. Everything is delicious. Especially, the handcrafted cocktails. My favorite is the apricot old fashions. I can never get enough of this place. It is our go to place all the time and everyone we recommend to go there loves it just as much as we do.

Always enjoy coming here but weekends are tough. It's pretty crowded and loud. That said, had a nice drink at the bar before dinner. Got a tiny table for 2 in the corner. Food was tasty but presentation was just OK. Not our best experience here but we will come back.

Visited 618 with another couple. We always enjoy the stuffed mushrooms. Two of us had the lobster raviolis topped with shrimp which were so delicious. My husband had the pappardelle bolognese which he really enjoyed. Our other diner had the roasted chicken which was good.

Had a very enjoyable dinner and date night at 618! From the appetizers, main course and desert, we cannot rave any more about this restaurant! The Tuesday night house wine special ($10 bottles) put the night over the top! Our server was Samantha, 5 Star service throughout the night! We'll definitely be back!

This was my first time at 618 and it did not disappoint. Our waiter Rick was outstanding and made excellent recommendations.
For example he suggested the Andouille encrusted cod and it was probably one of the best fish dishes I have eaten in a while. He really knew the menu. The drinks were great too; in particular The apricot old fashion and the 618 negroni. Excellent overall experience and I will be back with friends

Great time, great service and of course great food. Met the owner, the chef and feel that they know what we want to have in our great dining experience. You can get a variety of foods on the daily menu vs. a place that only has a choice of either a 3/5 course dinner. All very professional
