From the moment we walked in we were greeted by a angry valet service. Once inside we were greeted by the hostess told her we had a reservation. We asked if we could pls sit in a bigger table then the small ones they offer for two! The response was attitude followed by we cant seat you in a bigger table ( mind you the place was empty). Our server was the best part of the dinner as he was attentive and kind. Otherwise everything was a waste of time and money never again.
Amazing ambiance !! Will definitely come back
We went for my sisters birthday and it was such a nice experience. The lychee martini was amazing. The server was so nice and attentive.
The food was good, but expensive and the ambiance very pleasant. The service became inattentive. It looked like a mistake was made in one of the desserts, but nobody was around to ask and we decided have it anyway. The dessert menu has no pricing, which seemed odd, plus it took a while to get dessert.
Lychee martini was delicious. Beautiful ambiance and the pasta was delicious!
I ate at Rustica for my birthday brunch. I was really looking forward to the Jazz performance,unfortunately from our outside seated area we were deprived of the music. There was a complaint made by a tenet at the building next door. Other than that I had a wonderful time.
Food was so amazing. The staff seemed like they needed more servers. But Herbert was an amazing waiter!
The food and ambiance is outstanding. Our waitress made a lot of mistakes. I don't know if she was new or not, but if I go to Rustica's again I would request not to have her wait on us. She was a very sweet girl but not a good waitress.
I also think 8.00 for valet parking is outrageous!
It was my first time there, went for my daughter's graduation and I loved everything about this place. Food and cocktails were delicious. Will come back again and again.
We waited almost an hour and 30 min Just to get our food. Place was NOT crowded. Food portions were very small
We came here for Father's Day. We were seating inside only to be told that the ac was not functioning properly and welp by not functioning properly I mean it was 86 degrees in the restaurant. After multiple complaints not only from my family but other guests too we were finally seated outside. But as we sat at our table the service was really slow and we found ourself often with empty glasses no one would come refill not even our water. We talked to the manager about how unhappy we were yet there was no apology no free round of drinks or appetizer nothing. We spent 520 dollars on mediocre service and meh food.
Second time coming to the restaurant I was here last year and I really enjoyed myself we sat outside and although it was a bit warm it was and it was really nice experience service was absolutely amazing food was Exquisite not sure what happened this time around . The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated it's very rustic however it was so hot !! it was impossible to eat comfortably. we decided to eat in doors on Father's Day seeing as the weather was so hot outside. we should have eaten outside - we would have been better off. the service was not great - I guess they were shorthanded. we had to return to meals to the kitchen because steak / tuna were overcooked. Again would have given better rating but AC NOT WORKING + FOOD WAS DISAPPOINTING
Awesome setting and food!! Great service 👏🏾 Would go back!
Overall, the food and the service were good. However, they have installed a plastic cover in the outdoor space making the heat unbearable under the tent. It is more comfortable outside the tent.
Very beautiful ambiance. Similar to a garden/Forrest. The service was fast and our waitress was very sweet and attentive. The menu I wish had better descriptions of each plate we ordered beef but it can in very thin raw slices which we didn’t expect. But other than that the rest of the food was very good and highly recommend for a girls brunch, birthday or first date.
Love Rustica!! The food is delicious and the service outstanding! The Hibiscus Martini is the prettiest drink, and super tasty. Saturday night live music is another plus.
I felt like I was being rushed during dinner. The waitress told us to order everything first and when we were eating apps the dinner came out. They put my steak under a heat lamp and it was dry and overcooked when I was ready for it. It wasn’t worth it for me
Our server had too many tables and you should really put on the menu all the things that come on a plate, I received three things with strawberries when I’m allergic.
Accomadated our whole group perfectly a little hot but overall fantastic service
Always enjoy the restaurant and the ambiance
So it was my first time there. We were a party of 5 for Mothers Day. When we first sat down we noticed how much the table reminded us of being on a cruise the way it rocked back and forth. It made us dizzy so the waiter got us another table, rather than moving us to a different table. That took a while. We finally ordered apps and then it took a while to order dinner. It was loud in there. And the ladies bathroom only has two stalls, so by 9pm, there was a line as if I were at a bar rather than a restaurant. On top of that, one of the wood stall doors fell completely off track and me and another girl were left holding it trying to put it back on before finally giving up. Kinda cheesy & dive bar like. The food was good but overpriced
I had always seen the restaurant on open table (the outside area always caught my attention). We ate inside and were not disappointed. The decor was modern and the food was fabulous. It stays on our list as a keeper which is saying a great deal given we are so close to NYC!
Soon as we walked in we were greeted with great, relaxed and chill energy. Every table looks amazing, outside is beautiful with heaters. Food is phenomenal, drinks even better. One of the best restaurants in NJ. Servers are fun, and so down to earth.
Me and my lady spent our anniversary dinner there and we love it more and more each time we go there
The food is top notch and the service makes you feel right at home
The drinks are also very good as well
If you get a chance I would definitely try Rustica and enjoy a night out
We had a lovely meal under the tents outside. The food and the services were terrific, and we loved the whole setting! Everything also felt very covid-safe.
I waited more then one hour for my food, which was overbooked. And took them another 2 hours to bring another plate of food. Horrible experience
Our waitress was horrible. First she dropped water on 2 of us and then she never brought out the bread even though we asked 4 times. Luckily other waiters who weren’t ours did her job for her. The manager even came and asked what was wrong. Some people aren’t made for waiting. It wasn’t just us who had an issue. Same thing happened to the table next to us. Food and drinks were good.
Very disappointed with this restaurant after the glowing reviews given by others. Make sure to check your receipt before paying as mistakes made by the waiter will remain ther unless brought to their attention. Even after pointing out that 1) we didn't order an appetizer being charged and 2) we didn't request bottled water they only removed 1 item and "gave us a cup of coffee on them". Also beware of the valet as they will ask if you wish to park in their VIP spots for $20 (extremely tacky) or force you to wait nearly 10 minutes to return your car from wherever it is they park people who do not wish to be VIPs. Finally - it's not always the best look when you're arguing with other customers and getting aggressive with them. It makes others around you uncomfortable and want to leave (but cannot because the waiter is no where to be found).
I loved the Ambiance. My friend and I were seated in the Patio area and it was nice and quiet. Flowers, curtains and lights everywhere. The drinks were not much to my liking. We ordered two drinks and they were too strong for us. We communicated this to our server and she didn’t seem to care so we ended up ordering wine. The wine was good. I’m vegan and the selection is extremely limited. I ordered an appetizer (Brussels sprouts) it was delicious and a salad (Quinoa) it was great as well. My friend ordered calamari and she enjoyed it. My friend had pasta and asked if they had Vodka sauce, they don’t, we were a little taken aback by this since they have a bunch of Italian plates on their menu, so she settled for marinara sauce. The food was good. When it came down to dessert my friend had to ask if they had Tiramisu since the waiter didn’t give us the menu. I chose not to eat any dessert. I assumed they didn’t have anything vegan. There was plenty of street parking. They also have valet parking. The area felt safe. I don’t think I will return unless they introduce more vegan options to their menu. I chose this restaurant because it said “vegan” in their description. My bad for not checking the menu beforehand. My experience was very lukewarm. I believe it’s a good and chill place for ppl that don’t have any restrictions to their diet. The ambiance and decoration were my favorite part of the whole experience.
I came for a nice brunch with my closest friends/family for a late birthday celebration. It was a great time. I love the aesthetic, especially the outdoors area. Food was great as well. I would definitely love to go back again!!!!
We had a very nice evening in the outside dining section.
Always good service at Rustica. Visar is always a pleasant host and our waitress, Sara was sweet and efficient
My husband and I love this spot. We bring all of our friends here and especially love the jazz brunch! Drinks are always on point & aesthetic is so cozy yet posh.
Everything from the service (long wait for waiter) to the quality of food and drinks were subpar at best. I do not recommend this place and will not return.
The ambient is great especially outside in the tent . Inside the restaurant is kinda too light for my taste .
Food was decent . They were very busy on a Saturday night so we had to wait a little bit for service , but the server and the waiter were very friendly and nice. Would definitely recommend, and we'll be back for sure .
Great ambiance and great food. COVID protocol excellent
Very pretty outdoor space decorated nicely. Food is very good,drinks are a bit expensive
We have gone to many times. Unfortunately
The last time went about a week ago gave us
A bad feeling . We had A 6:30 reservation
On a week night. We sat in the beautiful
Outside terrace. The service was poor .The
Food took way to long too come. 1 hour 1/2
To come . They offered us free dessert but
It was 10:00 pm by then. The husbands had
Work the next day...( all this was not the problem,
I made the mistake, ( after sitting so long ) of going to
The lady’s room. When I say LADYS ROOM) I wondered when I left! The doors couldn’t be
Closed..the place was dirty...sink sockets pulled
Out! If the health department had been called
It would have been closed. As much as we
Liked the Resturant in the Past..I hesitated to
Recommend it to friends because of the service
And shape of the BATHROOM!
Nancy and Rich Schiff
We loved it outside decorated so beautiful waiter was so pleasant
Always a great time.
