Excellent menu and presentation. Food was consistently excellent. Service was pleasant and efficient. Delightful place to dine. Every time we go, we are pleased.
We came here for our anniversary dinner. Overall, it was ok but I’m not sure we would come back. We went on a rainy and cold day, so the restaurant was empty. The food was ok, but did not meet my expectations. The waiter was pleasant and the decor was beautiful, but I’m not sure I’d recommend it.
I believe everyone enjoyed their meals. Our server was courteous. He was semi attentive. I know we asked for a new bottle of water a couple times and it never came. Also the coffee was not hot at all.
Outstanding service from Lisa at lunchtime. Ambiance, music, acoustics were good, all at acceptable level for conversation at our table (and at weekend of “Zombiefest in Asbury Park, no less, so the restaurant was crowded). “Taco Bar” features of tofu tacos and cod tacos were flavorful, but salad appetizer of kale and Brussels sprouts Caesar was notably lacking Brussels sprouts. Tasty and homemade dressing, nevertheless. Give Iron Whale a try!
Excellent food, service and a special strawberry cheese cake was prepared for my wife’s birthday. I highly this restaurant on the Asbury Park Boardwalk
Service was outstanding!!! Food was delicious, however, only 4 small pieces of beets in their advertised beet salad. That was disappointing.
Amazing chef! The atmosphere is timeless and staff is great! Try the pumpkin creme brûlée!
Lovely outdoor table in shade. Great crab dishes!
We were excited to eat here based on other reviews. The service was fantastic and very attentive. The food, however, fell below our expectations. My wife’s filet was undercooked. My NY strip was properly cooked and tasted good. The sides were average and would have benefited from better seasoning. We will give the restaurant another chance. It might have been an issue of a different cook in the kitchen.
The menu had a lot of good options for everyone in our group + great location, too!
Good selection....nice serv
The bar tending and wait staff were all so nice. We had a great time at happy hour and then a wonderful dinner of mahi, swordfish and halibut.
Love this restaurant. The food was delicious, and the servers were all very friendly. The seafood was very fresh and prepared exactly as ordered.
Weekday post labor day so it was quiet. The shisito's were delicious and the tacos we pretty good. Beer list tolerated local's so was a little too corporate but they tried to squeeze them in. Everyone enjoyed the meal.
Beautiful dining room, food was good- ALMOST great. Calamari appetizer was standard, NY strip was very good, and shrimp with tagliatelle was great. Loved the strawberry shortcake. Service from Stephanie was WONDERFUL. Will certainly return.
Great restaurant. Nice looking inside and outside space. Delicious food and friendly, attentive staff.
Nice atmosphere. Our waitress Trisha was outstanding. Very pleasant and informative. Bill for lunch was a little overpriced but we were on the Boardwalk in Asbury so it's expected. Would go back.
Food was good but, the calimari and my burger were not hot.
Great service and great food!
Food and service were very good. Room was very loud. I think it's a great new addition to Asbury.
Nice menu. Wonderful service. Food was tasty, beautiful to look at and nicely portioned. Good experience.
Our server was fantastic! Food was delish. The special 16oz cowboy steak was cooked to perfection!
Great food! Great service, nice views, energy and atmosphere. Overall great spot
A perfect location on the boardwalk overlooking the ocean.
We sat at a table outside and everything was perfect. Great service and wonderful food.
Good nice waitstaff
Once we got past an indifferent hostess, (we had reservations) the rest of our experience was good. The only hiccup being overly well done (burnt to a crisp) soft shell crabs, which were promptly replaced by the manager before our other entrée, swordfish, could get cold. Nice save! The wait and support staff were very attentive without being in the way.
Dinner was amazing! I will definitely be back 👍🏻
Either they need to work on the recipes for the specialty drinks or the bartender did not know what he/she was doing.
Excellent food, drinks, service, and overall experience. Will definitely return!
Food was overpriced and my meal was over cooked. Location on the boardwalk was nice though
Mahi mahi dish was excellent! Can’t wait to have again. French fries were lukewarm at best and on the soggy side, prefer hot and crispy. Waitress was friendly, but busy with larger parties, she did manage to
be attentive. Did like the fact that we were not rushed and had plenty of time between appetizer and main course. Decor is very nice, but noise level was very loud and with a couple of more people it would be difficult to hear an on going conversation. Would definitely recommend and we will go back, maybe fall or winter would be less noisy.
Food was delicious. Crab toast appetizer was excellent. Service was great. We had two great experiences in the past two months.
Food, service and atmosphere was outstanding both times I dined there. Would highly recommend it
We actually didn’t even sit down! When we walked in the hostess barely bothered to look up. I told her our name and she proceeded to grab the menus, sprint to a horrible table in the middle of the room, threw the menus on the table and walked away (never uttered a word!)...with that kind of treatment, we walked out. If this is the type of person you want as a customer’s first impression of your restaurant it’s not a place we choose to spend our money. We are “locals” with an array of wonderful restaurants to choose from...such a shame this is off the list.
Came for brunch on a Sunday. Expedite started off rough, sat for 15 minutes without water or being greeted. Had to pull aside a busser to ask for a server and then it still took 10 minutes for someone to come by! Our server started off by saying that she was going to take our table because “our” server was busy. The restaurant was maybe 20% full.
That aside the food and drinks were fantastic and from that point onward service was unobtrusive and friendly. So overall a good experience.
Our waitress was friendly and thorough in spite of how busy the restaurant was. Ordered two apps - the clams and the calamari. Both were delicious with a kick of spice. Main courses for the table included the pork chop, shrimp tacos and a burger. No complaints from the table! All enjoyed are meals. Shared 3 desserts including fudge brownie a la mode, key lime pie and crime brûlée- delicious.
My wife and I went here for the first time for dinner last weekend. The place is in a great location and has amazing views and ambience. The service was also excellent. However, the food needs some fine tuning. The Moules Frites appetizer was fantastic, as was my Mahi, but some dishes were lacking. Overall, we enjoyed it and would definitely come back.
Great service. Ocean views. We went early before a concert. Try the fish sticks. And cedar plank salmon.
Menu selection, food pairings, kitchen preparation, presentation, decor and most importantly service staff were all top-notch. Excellent list of wines and beer in addition to non-alcoholic beverages. Most surprising was the availability of choices at a variety of prices, which is easier on the wallet. Definitely will be back for another visit.
