Excellent service from our server Virginia. The disappointments were mainly two of our friends ordered the veal parmigiana and found it tough and over cooked. The other main dishes were outstanding. We also shared the calamari and only received a thimble size cup of sauce to eat with it and had to wait for more. Felt rushed because helpers were clearing plates before everyone was finished eating. I understand there’s the turnover time but let us enjoy our meals. Still a favorite restaurant of ours and will be back but probably in September.

We don't get down to Beach Haven very often but when we do we always make it our business to have dinner at Stefano's. This time we took with our friends since they have never been there. They couldn't believe how good the food was...better than they had expected. They love fish and usually have it wherever they go so they were really impressed.

I believe Stefanos is the best restaurant on the island! I have never had a bad meal in all my years going there. Always a delight & the staff always has a smile! Highly recommend. The only downside is trying to get a reservation on short notice. But always worth the wait!

We have dined here many times and the food and service are always top notch. Ambiance is the same maybe it’s time to spruce up the decor. Noice level a bit high. The staff works very well together and tables are cleared and reset before the customers are out the door. You always need a reservation here even during the week.

This was my third meal at Stefano’s over 5 years. I ordered Flounder Francaise which was prepared and cooked well but too lemony and tart for me. It also was not hot. The side salad was not fresh with a few old slimy pieces of lettuce as well as brown edged pieces. My sons Tuna shashimi style was good, my niece’s sea bass was great. Another son had ravioli which he said was good. If I go again I’ll try my luck with a pasta with seafood dish.

Enjoyed our meal and the service was good. Upgraded our salads for $7- it was not worth the additional cost so would not recommend it.

We have been dining at STEFANO'S for 15 years.... our friends from New Hampshire come every year just for the lamp chops.... We have always had a wonderful meal...in a pretty setting. The service is always good and the clientele are very nice. It is casual but most people like to dress up a notch! We love the BYOB...

The food is always excellent - from appetizers to dessert.....definitely a go to place - we just love it and HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!!! LBI is lucky to have this gem!

Very nice restaurant on LBI. Excellent food across a varied menu and the pricing is appropriate. Our party of four asks that wait staff be reminded to not stretch across table to serve. When ever possible, staff should move around the table and place items at diner's position. Looking forward to going back later this season.
