    Our server was great and the interior is nice, but the food was underwhelming. Pesto gnocchi was very bland. We wouldn’t recommend the crab/avocado appetizer. The burrata app was fine.

    Fish and pasta entrees were very good but more food than one person can consume. Only drawback was party of cackling women in the other room who were very loud and annoying. Server was excellent.

    first time eating here, we were very dissapointed that we couldn't get a seat on the patio even though we requested it on reservation weeks in advance so we were stuck eating inside. it was a bit stuffy inside, sat us too close to a table of about 12 people so it was pretty loud and not as intimate as we were anticipating, because of this the ambiance and date night were pretty much ruined. However, the service was very good. My entre' was brought out luke warm, I had no choice but to send it back, the owner came over apologized and brought me a very hot very delicious fresh meal. We were then offered free adult beverages (as was the table of 12). I'm not sure if he would have offered us the free drink if I didn't sarcastically say something but the gesture was there. We would go back but if we have choices, this may not be the one we choose simply based on the ambiance. Again, the food was very good, the service was great but I cannot stress enought that the ambiance slightly ruined our date night. You should check it out. My advice is to do your best to eat outside on patio or a seat by the window if it is an intimate occasion.

    A great birthday celebration dinner! The service provided by Miriam was superb. She buzzed around the room making sure all of her customers were well taken care of - she's a true super star! The food was excellent, as usual. Samantha, the manager onsite, was attentive and very personable. Bistro Di Marino is our family favorite restaurant.

    I had an impromptu dinner date last night with my best friend and I was blown away by the paparadelle bolognese. I’d never had it before, and it was fantastic and just what I was craving. Our waiter Matthew was very attentive and had great energy the whole time we were there.

    Bistro di Marino will always be one of my favorite restaurants in the South Jersey area and each trip solidifies this opinion even further. We came for the buck a shuck oysters and enjoyed them along with other season apps and multiple huge plates of pasta. We love the BYOB aspect and the service is ALWAYS next level. As always we will be back!

    The reception area is very poor with a lot of servants doing nothing and examining you. The eating area is Ok with an excess of tables. Outside is missing a visible sign for the restaurant what makes difficult to locate it from a car. The food is OK: the lobster bisque had too much water and the spoon was too small and too flat making difficult to take. Left half of the bowl because the soup was splashing out of the spoon. The bronzing fish was beneath a lot of greens salad, difficult to eat. Had to many small bones forcing you to take them from the mouth. One off them forced me to go to the bathroom to get rid of it. Ate 10% of the plate. Too tiring and dangerous to eat. Prices too high for the quality of the food. For 2 it costs $130. The menus were very old, somewhat dirty.

    Meh . Just ok. My friend’s veal tough and over cooked. The red sauce was too strong. The pesto was good. I got “heirloom tomatoes” . They were tasteless and unripe.

    Bistro was horrible that night because they had a wedding going on with loud music. The Bistro should have told me about the noisy wedding before I was allowed to make a reservation. I would have cancelled. The air condition was also horrible. HOT HOT HOT ! The food was good except for a ceasar salad that we ordered which was served hot and mushing. I will think twice about ever returning.

    Sorry to say that I was disappointed on our visit to DiMarino. We have been here many times and have enjoyed it. I had invited two other couples to dine with us. All six liked the food but there were some problems. The table they set up could not hold all the plates it was so small. It looked like they put three tables for two together. All three rocked so bad two of our party had water spilled on them. Finally after we couldn't get help from our server we took our napkins to place under the legs to steady them. We were seated in a corner that was so dark we had to use our phone flashlights to read the menu. It is going to be a long time maybe even never before we return there.

    Decided to go to dinner early to ensure being seated in the courtyard and such a beautiful August late afternoon. Our only complaint regarding the courtyard was somebody needed to run a blower and cleanup the brick pavers. It is unfortunate that they no longer run the fountain. Regarding the meal, our waitress Gabby was very friendly and polished with her service. The gnocchi sampler was an excellent appetizer and my wife’s entree of veal Gino was thoroughly enjoyed. I was torn in choosing between a traditional entree or the lobster fettuccine. I selected the latter and really devoured it. The visit at the end with the manager bring us some complimentary chocolate cello was a nice touch and ending to an enjoyable meal.
