Great view of the beach from the outdoor seating. reserve outside !
Realizing there is a shortage of wait staff we waited for over 20 minutes to place a drink order.
The acoustics are not great and it’s very loud.
The food was excellent.
We were seated by host at a nice table by window but then told by an assistant manager we had to move for another group with a reservation. We had a reservation as well and requested an ocean view table for our party two days before. He made us feel as if we did something wrong but we were directed to the table by his staff.
No apology was offered by him, and he explained that our table was needed for a group of 6. We agreed to move to another table which had an ocean view for only two of the four of us, whereas our initial seating provided a good view for all four of us. By the way, we chose this restaurant because we wanted an indoor table with an ocean view.
Our waiter apologized and when we made it clear we were not happy with the brusque nature of the manager, he offered to give us a round of drinks on the house. We could tell he was doing his best for customer service recovery.
Food was good but risotto was dry and required more sauce, which was provided upon request.
Four of us had a lovely lunch outside looking at the boardwalk and the beach. Drinks were good and our entrees were very good. My only disappointment was there were only 3 scallops on my plate— another one would have been appreciated
We were outside, by our request on a breezy, beautiful night. Servers were excellent, very accommodating to our numerous requests (with elderly parents. Devon did a great job, and we enjoyed our meals. Meatball appetizer was delicious, sauce as well. Calamari was average, dinner of pappardelle was excellent. Also enjoyed the scallops caponata!
Great server !!
Very over-priced for mediocre food. Drinks were not good and chicken that came with my salad was so overdone it was rubber. Server was good though, no complaints there
The service at the bar before lunch was great. The table service was poor. Food was ok
Wonderful, as always!
Service was GREAT! Food is excellent. My only complaint is getting to the restroom is difficult especially if you have a baby carriage or someone who is handicap, as the elevator is not easily accessible!
Unfortunately I can't give zero stars. Horrible experience. Food was cold and uncooked. Manager apologized, took no responsibility and threw his staff under the bus. One of his staff members came at me trying to start a conflict / flight. What trash. Will never go back. Poor management. Poor staff. Poor food. The manager actually told me he would fire both. Let’s see
Service no check backs after food arrived to see if we needed anything. Calamari was tough and elastic not great. Linguini and clams much better.
Mediocre. Food was bordering on poor. I used to love this place. Very sad about my experience
Server was excellent!
Great outdoor seating. Food was very good and good value.
We had a lovely meal last night at Stella Marina. Our server was efficient and very friendly! We enjoyed our pasta dishes both the spaghetti and the mushroom
ravioli . The ambiance was lovely and not too noisy. Even though it was a cloudy day,
we could appreciate the ocean and the beach views. We will be back in the near future!
One of my favorite restaurants pre COVID, needs some work to get back to that level
Good was delicious. The only thing that was wrong was there was one meal that didn’t come out with the others and we hate to wait a few minutes for it to come out. Other than that, the service was great
As usual, an excellent dining experience at the shore. Great food and beverages. Engaging wait staff. Bartenders doing their best to keep up as the staffing shortages continue. Always one of my go-to places, year-round.
Great good but it was too warm inside the restaurant!
Overall everything was great, a little warm inside, but weather was hot.
We had a great time. Food was wonderful as always. The vibe of the place is really nice.
Consistent food. Great happy staff and wonderful location
Credit card machine wasn’t working.
Loved the food. Our waitress, Victoria was great. Will go back.
Our server was incredible, super cordial, friendly and very attentive. The food was very good, and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting.
Great service and quality food! Their computer was down from henri storm so we had to pay cash. But I’m sure this is a rare issue. Highly recommend it.
Food was bad, service was a shambles. Never going back. Asbury Park has too many other good restaurants. Stay away from this one.
Not as good as it usually is. Halibut special was good but not good enough to want to have again. Spaghetti dinner was a bit bland. Asking for grated parmesan was like asking for grated gold and no pepper to be found any where and was not asked if we want any. Hopefully it was a one off night.
Wonderful unhurried meal.
Absolutely abysmal service altogether. I made a reservation here for my boyfriend's birthday dinner, we sat at 7:30 and we were ignored until about 8 o'clock when finally a waiter came up to us telling us he's sorry for the wait but they over sat him so what is he supposed to do. We order our drinks and appetizers hoping to order food to but he walks away before we can do so. He brings us the drinks and practically throws them on our table he walked away so quickly. Two other tables, a 4 top and a 5 top sit, order and EAT their meals before we put in our order. Both my boyfriend and myself are servers so we completely understand the staffing situation and are thankful to have the opportunity to eat out during a pandemic but this was too much. I was really looking forward to this dinner and was hyping it up to my boyfriend and it was an embarrassment. I feel sorry for anyone who chooses to eat at this restaurant, you're better off going to olive garden they have better everything and that is saying something.
Terrific food and great service from Elizabeth!
Service was terrible. Apparently they were short staffed but management did not come around to apologize so I’m not sure if that was the reason. Calamari had a hint of bleach. My meal was ok but the others in my group were unimpressed.
This place is always good-friendly staff, great location, and nice experience. We go a few times every beach season, and enjoy it.
Usually outstanding, so this was an off night. Air conditioning was not working, though staff kept saying “ok, we’ll turn it up”. Food was just ok. Couldn’t get anyone to refill water glasses - the bus staff was too busy setting up tables for the next groups.
Service was extremely slow and it was quite hot in there. Food was delicious
Great food and great service. Had to sit inside. No outside upstairs dining 😕. Very warm throughout the evening. Poor air conditioning/air flow 🥵
Nice outdoor patio seating
Waiter was very good , food excellent
