The food was delicious. We ordered seafood lovers bucket for two. It came with an appetizer and pasta, also with lemonade. It is BYOB. The service was good, our waiter was very sweet. We will be back.
The place is very clean. The food is good but they are more expensive than places like Hook & Reel for the same quality of phone. You basically have to pay for everything thing separately.
Great seafood. Outdoor and indoor seating is great. Wonderful setting with very friendly waiters. It's a great place to take family and friends and share great seafood with their delicious buckets!
The food was great. The service was excellent. Ambiance and noice could have been better but what do you expect dinning on a blocked off street.
Thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor dining. Very well setup and safe, during this time. Service was excellent and so was my meal. Good quality and quantity. I will revisit again and highly recommend it to anyone looking to eat some good seafood and enjoy a pleasant atmosphere. Wait staff was excellent and accommodating also.
We decided to go here based on a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint. We had the garlic noodles and the sea festival bucket and they were delicious— that Nauti Cajun seasoning is to die for and the wait staff was super nice. Highly recommend all-around!
The food was excellent. The customer service was great.
Crab bucket was amazing. Will definitely be back
Nice outdoor dining experience. Good food. Earnest waitstaff. Will visit again.
The service was really great and got whatever we needed. We didn't realize it was BYOB, but the server kindly let us know that there is a liquor store around the corner. I ordered lemonade, raw oysters, and the Dungeness crab bucket and LOVED it. My boyfriend ordered a lemonade and King crab bucket and said it was good. Very good price for seafood. I liked how the menu shows you what kind of sauces they have and options for how spicy you want it.
My boyfriend was also getting eaten alive by the mosquitos by the outdoor seating (but obviously the restaurant can't control that.) After we got the bill I realized on the small table sign it said that you get a complimentary beverage if you check-in on facebook, I wish the server mentioned this to us before we paid. Overall very nice experience. We will be back!
I really enjoyed the food, the setting and the atmosphere. I have informed lots of family members and friends to try the restaurant. Loved it!
Food is fantastic- especially the wings and shrimp tacos. Service was a little rough but it’s overall a great place
Simply delicious!!!!!!!! Crabs were sweet and tasty... the sauce was delicious... The best was the shrimp tacos!!! We will definitely be back!!! Service was great and the owner came by to see how everything was. Great experience!!
The waiter Juan was very attentive and the owner came out on several occasions to check on us. I truly love going to nauti they never disappoint.
Delicious!!! Waiter was so attentive and so nice!! Food was fresh!!
Food and service was great. We will be back! Ambiance could be enhanced by leaving umbrellas open with solar lights
My husband and I've been here many times and just absolutely love the food and service. This time, we sat outdoor under the canopy to enjoy the sea lovers bucket. Our server really made me feel special by surprising me with a lava cake for my birthday. Definitely recommend.
We went for my sister's birthday. The food was awesome!
Service was great very polite staff food was amazing. They know how to put a good boil together. My new seafood spot. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
1st time dining at Nauti, pleasantly surprised. Clam appetizers were fresh and delicious. Wife had Lobster w garlic noodles & I had dungeons crabs with garlic noodles. Absolutely outstanding, dining was outside under tent due to COVID. We’ll be returning.
Really great find, the food was fresh and tasty and all and all it was a good experience. They explained all the dishes, you can make your own seafood bucket or choose one of their ready made ones. They do not sell alcohol but you can bring your own.
Food to die for.
Food was pretty good but expensive. Service is main issue with this place. Seated immediately, but waited over 30 minutes to even be asked if I wanted a glass of water. Ordered food food came out was hot but side was not brought to table till meal was almost finished. It's BYOB took 30 mins to get an ice bucket. Waiter was great, but food handlers were extremely slow and inefficient. Looked no older than 14 years old possibly family member. They were far from busy maybe 8 tables. Very simple menu that should be fast and efficient. I would not recommend this place based solely on service. There is many complaint about service and they are spot on. Also they should prep shrimp so that it needs not be peeled as it is a Hugh mess as well as crab should have be pre slit. No wet wipes to clean up had to use ice bucket for wine to wash up. Very disappointed for such a expensive meal for 2
The food was delicious, and it last two days. Definitely going back next month for my anniversary
I go to Maryland for crabs, and I think these are better.
Best seafood place in Jersey highly recommend‼️👌🏾
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Our only issue was it took a long time for us to get a server, but other than that the overall experience was good.
The food was very good! The quality of the snow crab legs needs to be improved, but the flavor of the nauti seasoning was excellent.
It was simply amazing... loved everything and will be returning.
The food was excellent, as well as the service from Vince. He checked on us to made sure everything was fine with us and if we needed anything. He made sure to come and clear the table at the perfect moments. I would most definitely recommend this establishment to others. The amount of food for what you paid was not disappointing at all. Will definitely be back again!
Vinnie was awesome. I hate this new sidewalk dining business but his service was so good I didn’t even have time to really notice or complain. Food was awesome, but I wish you guys delivered to Brooklyn. I’ll be back soon!!!
Have to say, AMAZING FOOD, service was great and great portion sizes. N it’s BYOB. Would definitely go back
Great food service was a little slow and inattentive but overall I would Defi go back considering the current situation.
Had a variety of seafood treats such as snow crab, crawfish, and oysters. Everything was delicious. Loved the hot nauti sauce on our crawfish and crab, but I’ll probably get it on the side next time. It was a little messy!
The food was amazing! Definitely will recommend to everyone. Definitely going back!
The food was good. The service was slow but the staffing was limited.
Everything turned out great! We were very happy. Thank you!
I'm always satisfied with the quality and taste of the food, I'd recommend this place for everyone to try, you won't be disappointed.
Food was amazing. Definitely make reservations. Food is worth it
