As always this place never disappoints! We had a perfect evening to sit outside and enjoy a perfect evening in town. We brought 2 friends who had never been and they said it was one of the best meals they ever had.

Amazing food! However did not like the groups of people NOT wearing masks walking right past our table while walking through red bank. The restaurant should use signs about social distancing.

Dined after Semolina for the first time for a girls night. All three of us devoured our entrees and thoroughly enjoyed dessert. The homemade pasta was to die for, ample portions, and presented beautifully. I chose Carbonara - solid choice. We loved the liveliness of this cozy byob!

I like that the restaurant is farm-to-table, with a list on the back of the menu of the local farms and dairies that they work with.

As usual food and service @ Semolina are outstanding. It is one of my favorite restaurants. If we going to be in the Red Bank area I always make a reservation for dinner. This time my husband had lamb meatballs for an appetizer which he loved. My choice was the beef tartare it is one of the best that I have eaten and never pass it up. For dinner, my husband had the semolina dusted skate wing, and I had the beet risotto w/ gorgonzola & hazelnuts (delicious). And of course, don't pass on dessert. We shared the dark chocolate torte. Delizioso!!!

Our reservations were for 4:30. At 6:11 as we were wrapping up with desert, another waiter, not a manager, came up to our table and rudely warned us that we must leave at 6:30 because the table was reserved for another party. First of all, we were finishing our desert and would have been out by 6:30 anyway. Second, open table made reservations for 4:30 and not for 4:30-6:30. We were so upset that we didn’t finish our desert, got up and left. Rude!!!!

This was a birthday celebration for my partner of 12 years. He was very impressed and enjoyed the food and experience. We were the only people of color in the restaurant that evening. Our server appeared to have difficulty in finding a way to be comfortable in serving us. We observed her being more natural and comfortable with other guests. The meal was outstanding which was deemed by my partner.

A gem helmed by an amazing chef and team. The Semolina family is top notch —making us feel like family too—they went above and beyond for some special requests just this week. And the food! Oh the food! Sourced, cooked and presented beautifully. “Farm to table” is overused these days but this just truly is.
