We usually have a great experience here but last night the service was awful and the food was so disappointing. The fish was overcooked in the tacos and the fries were burnt. the extra order of truffle fries were soggy.

Fantastic as always. My favorite restaurant in ocean county. My husband and I shared the Pei mussel appetizer. I had the beef tenderloin with figs wrapped in prosciutto. My husband had the artic char with pineapple salsa and wild and brown rice. Both entrees are delicious. We will return

An excellent restaurant - we've been twice in two weeks, and each time was excellent. The tables outside were a little roomier, which made the dinner more comfortable.

Genevieve’s is fit for serious foodies.
We went with four of the choices from the starters menu....each dish excellent.
They are doing such an admiral job in dealing with Covid stuff.
Server was perfect, as was the food...

This is our go-to place for an exceptional meal while at our beach house. We cannot say enough about the food, atmosphere, service and warm feeling we get while dining at this fine restaurant. Genevieve is such a talented chef and we feel blessed we get to enjoy her creations. We really love that the menu changes seasonally as we always look forward to trying something new. Thank you Genevieve’s Restaurant for always making us happy!!!

They’ve given us great dishes and they’ve given us average dishes. Wife was not a fan of the stew - found it to be bland and the veal tough. Truffle fries were excellent.

As always the food was terrific! However if they are going to continue outdoor dining for as long as they can, they need to invest in heaters. Unfortunately Fall has come way too early to the Jersey Shore, and it was cold/windy out back. While me and my friends normally like to linger a bit over dinner and dessert, the weather was too uncomfortable ( even with long pants and a jacket) to do so. Our servers were also terrific as usual.
See you soon!😊

As usual an excellent meal. For appetizers we shared the pei mussels. Our favorite appetizer. There were 2 couples. I had the steak. Mmmmmm it was better than ones I have had at steak house's. Crab cakes for my husband. My friend had the pork chop. I had a taste and it was delicious. Her husband the fiochetti with a side of meatballs. He loves their meatballs and he is a meatball connoisseur😊. For dessert carrot cake and a 3 layer chocolate cake. A fantastic ending to a fantastic meal. Genevieve's is my favorite restaurant in ocean county.

You cannot find a finer meal in all of Seaside Heights or Seaside Park. From appetizer to dessert the entire meal is an experience worth having. Anytime I am in the area this will be a must for at least one dinner.

Have always enjoyed the creativity of this restaurant. However, tonight’s dinner was disappointing. Though the ambience of the backyard outdoor porch seating was nice, the food tonight was not up to snuff. The mussels appetizer came in a nice broth but there was no bread for dunking and not even a spoon. The toast on the lobster appetizer was over crisped and dry. Similarly the same can be said for the veal paillard. The seafood duo was one note with flavor; short on the chili and this too sweet on the orange over powering the scallops and the fish. The kitchen’s performance is an obvious victim of accommodations for covid. Will await the end of the pandemic before I return.
