Always amazing! Our go to place! Food quality, service & ambiance just can’t be beat! I love chicken barelli -I order it every time I go! My husband loves pork chop parm & so many other dishes. Get zabione for dessert. They will come to your table & make it right there. Owner & staff very friendly. Espresso martinis are awesone. Frank Sinatra sings there on Saturdays. A great place!

We had a very nice dinner with excellent server. The sourdough bread was so good.
We started with a Caesar salad that was just right, not too much dressing.

Our entrees were Rigatoni Vodka that was really good that came with peas and mushrooms. The Eggplant Parm. was made veggie style.
We were so full we passed on the dessert.

We will back soon. I would really like to try the Polenta Crusted Fried Calamari and Gnocchi Bolognese.

Went for an early Christmas Eve dinner with my young adult children. The decorations, staff and service all were awesome. Although a little pricey, I would definitely go back. Appetizers and dessert were the yummiest.

Really liked the restaurant and our server Dan was very nice.
The party of foul-mouth Floridians next to us were very loud and obnoxious with their cursing and trash talk of NY sport teams, but this is not the restaurants fault.
Drinks were tasty and moderately priced. Entrees were in the mid-to-upper $30's and the portions were very generous.
Food took a while to come out, about 1.5 hours for our 2 entrees. This could be attributed to the number of parties that were there that night. We ran out of time and could not stay for dessert.
We might return again in the spring when the weather gets nicer.

Liked the place very much. Pork Chop was excellent. The Shrimp Oreganata was too garlicky but good. The entertainment was way to loud. Someone said he had “mike problems” will definitely go back.

This is always such a beautiful place to dine. The midweek winter evenings here are great as the crowds are off reveling in Palm Beach. The food is always top notch with friendly service. The prices are high, but that seems to be spreading like a new variant. We are also paying for beach front ambiance in one of NJ’s most exclusive neighborhoods.

When we paid the bill we discovered that the same glass of wine was priced out differently, $17 for the first glass and $25 for the second glass. We questioned the server and he said he undercharged the first glass and made it up on the second. Very poor business practice to not have explained that when we were handed the bill. I called the restaurant a few days later and left a message for the manager to call me BUT I did not receive the courtesy of a return phone call. Very disappointed !!!!!!

Our meal was outstanding. Zucchini Flowers in November? Now that's amazing and they were absolutely delicious. We hadn't been there in a while so it was nice to see Liam again. Plus we were do delighted to have Trish as our waitress. We knew her from the original Mahogany Grill. She has always and still provides impeccable service. Can't wait to go back soon.
