Another fantastic meal at Due Mari, this time for brunch. Try the lobster Benedict. It is fantastic, as is their entire menu.

Brunch to celebrate a birthday. Food was inconsistent. Some dishes very good. Others disappointing. The service started out very hands on. All involved did their job well but once the entrees were served we couldn’t find our server. Finally we got the dessert menus but after no one came back after 15 minutes we decided to just get the check. Disappointed that we didn’t celebrate the birthday with dessert but we couldn’t wait any longer.

Meal was expensive; food was just okay; meal delivered without side dishes (high cost additions), delivered after we finished entrees, no reduction in cost. We won't be going back.

Fritto Misto and fried mozzarella were good. Make sure eat them with the sauce provided to enhance the flavors.
Fusilli Verdi was good but the duck was more like a pulled pork instead of pieces of meat. I preferred the Sacchetti pasta.
Agnello lamb was great.
Anatra duck was great as well (note: this is prepared as a smoked duck like you're eating fresh BBQ; very different and delicious)
Affogato gelato and espresso for dessert was fantastic.
Recommend the bomboloni donuts as well

Our waiter took our order and then briefly appeared after the entrees were cleared from the table.
Never brought my wine, but that omission could have been corrected if an attempt to check on our meal had ever occurred...
It was not overly busy in the restaurant. The other waiters were attending to the tables assigned to them, I guess we were unlucky with the table we were seated at.
He was polite, even brought some minature panettone to take home - however we threw it in the trash since it was moldy!
Pricing of the "special of the day" (Dover Sole) was outrageous for 3 smaller sized strips of fish.

NEVER AGAIN!

Very good dinner as usual, but wanted to do the pre-theatre menu, but it is only available between 3:00P - 5:30P. Why end at 5:30 and not at least 6:00-6:15P? The theaters are only a five minute walk away and shows don't begin until 8P.

I live about 25 minutes away and find myself making excuses to be in New Brunswick just to go to Due Mari. Never a bad meal. Smoked duck is beyond amazing. Lamb always great. Pasta is always great. Would definitely recommend. You cannot go wrong with Due Mari. Only have two minor complaints from my meal Saturday night. Waitress didn't remember anything we ordered from food to drinks. She or someone else always came right back to confirm what we actually ordered. Also the beef carpaccio used to have fried capers and now they are naked. The fried capers sent this appetizer over the top...not sure why they don't do this any longer.

We were not told there was a special menu for brunch pre theater. We had to wait almost an hour until we were served and had to rush to make our show. The waitress rarely came over. The manger came over at the end and we told her our story. She said she was sorry and never even mentioned doing anything for us. We have been there many times but not sure we will return.

outstanding appetizers---NJ oysters and corn custard. Brodetto main course was very good but sauce could have been more briney . Pasta bolognese was disappointing; the sauce was too acidic and metallic tasting and needed more meat. wines were very good selected from "by the glass" list

As visitors to New Brunswick, we selected Due Mari because of its excellent online reviews. It did not disappoint. Dinner was terrific, especially the tomato-mozzarella salad. An added bonus was jazz standards performed by an excellent female vocalist with guitar accompaniment--not so loud as to interfere with conversation. Our server friendly and accommodating, but not as knowledgeable as one expects in a restaurant of this quality.

We had been to Due Mari before and they always seat us at the same table in the back of the restaurant near the kitchen. I wonder why that is? Also this table is directly under an air conditioning vent and we were uncomfortably cold the entire dinner. One of the servers kept standing with their back to us, and waiting near our table as though it was the waiting area for servers. When the server did this the one nice view we had of the windows was blocked by their body. Our Anniversary dinner was disappointing.

We came to celebrate our anniversary. The food was good, as was the service. The only complaint we could make is that we were seated right next to a very large and noisy group of 8-10 people. Hard to have a romantic dinner for two when seated next to a large party. The cozier tables were unoccupied.

Great restaurant. Went for Sunday Brunch. Had chicken and waffles, but unfortunately the waffles were not crispy. The rest of our group (3 others) enjoyed their meal. Waiters were very attentive, but too much so. They were wonderful, just need to back off a bit.
