Vidalia Restaurant - Lawrenceville, NJ Ratings and Reviews
We had tickets for a show at the McCarter Theater in Princeton. We had seen some positive reviews for Vidalia and decided to try it. So glad we did! Interesting and varied menu, the food was delicious. The service was friendly and very good, and we really enjoyed our experience.
It is small so the tables are quite close and you tend to hear and be heard by the nearby tables which is really the only downside. But it was not enough of an issue to keep us from coming again or recommending it highly.
I came here with my family for my 40th birthday and had an unforgettable time. The service was excellent. Our server was bright, attentive, professional and service-oriented. The owner came out to check on us twice and then had the opportunity to speak Italian with my stepfather who was visiting from Sicily. I got serenaded in Italian and will never forget the laughter and good times shared here. The steak starter and the beet salad were scrumptious. My pasta dish w/ fennel sausage and fresh ricotta was lovely. I had some sort of lemon curd almond paste dessert and every bite was heavenly. Thank you thank you!
We frequent Vidalia, as we live so close and usually have a good experience. This was our second New Years Eve dinner there and we were not happy.
We were seated and welcomed by a nice server. She took our order based off the pre fixe menu. Our first course came out to us quickly, which was nice. Then the salad course. I requested a house salad as I cannot have cheese and it came out with cheese anyway. They corrected the same. It took time for them to clear this course and also time for our entree to come out. We actually didn't see our server until it was time for her to bring dessert. She did hook me up with an off the menu dessert due to my dietary restrictions, which was nice.
Overall, I understand it was NYE but they did not appear to be as busy as the years before. We did not feel for the price that the menu options and service were what we paid for.
Very noisy due to restaurant being fully booked with NY Eve. The menu was prix fixe which I don't like. I sent an email to the restaurant via their web site to ask whether it was prix fixe that night. I never heard back from them. Four courses is just too much for me to eat and it was $70 pp plus tax and a 20% tip. The food was good but it was cramped and very, very noisy. Seating was not comfortable.
this small restaurant had a nice intimate atmosphere and the wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The menu is too extensive for such a small restaurant. The entrees are overpriced and the value just isn't there. The food was overly pretentious....not one thing on the menu was simple.... The salad and entrees were mediocre. I could do that at home. We won't go back.
This was my first time here. Went with a colleague from work for lunch. The salmon salad special was excellent. It was noisy due to some Christmas lunches. Restaurant is BYOB so important to note that. Good menu selection. Cozy environment. Will definitely go again.
My Husband and I on our days off, (date night) we either travel to NYC for dinner or our favorite restaurant which happens to be Vidalia. The Chef is always on premise which is always a major plus and the staff is absolutely wonderful,.. The Food is always consistent, the Osso Bucco is my husbands favorite, and am a creature of habit as well I love the mushrooms stuffed with sausage, and the lasagna, OMG the red sauce is the Best. Also a plus if you decide to stay home you can order/pick up. If you have not tried this restaurant put it on your list its a must!
Amazing as always. Chef Sal and his team never disappoint- from service to cuisine. Our meals were delicious, paced perfectly, and beautiful to top it all off. Service was paced perfectly with a kind, knowledgeable waitress, and the restaurant is so cozy and beautifully decorated for Christmas! We had a great anniversary dinner.
A very special little place tucked in the back streets of Pretty Lawrenceville.
Server was well informed about the menu choices and offered the perfect service .
Food was creatively prepared
Very homey and quaint
We will make our way back with friends soon
Absolutely lovely birthday dinner with my wife. Cozy, warm and friendly place to enjoy a leisurely Italian meal that not only tastes great but is served at a proper pace with style. I can highly recommend the Vidalia loaf, arugula salad and a really tremendous portion of pork shank ossobucco. The gelato dessert was the perfect way to end the night, especially with the attached birthday candle. We will return often- thanks Sal for a perfect evening
Chef / Owner Sal has raised the food and service bars a bit since our last visit; our salmon and veal parm dishes were delicious and the portion sizes just right. The service was attentive and professional. The combination of the above factors made it a very enjoyable evening and experience.
I can’t say enough about the food and service at Vidalia. A great place to bring family and friends for any occasion. I would have given overall (5) stars, believe it’s important for a server to know the food their serving. Otherwise, great service and enjoyable night!
We happened to be there on an evening with a group of 20 that was a small wedding reception in the dining room. The noise didn't bother us but I imagine it's typically quiet. Vodka sauce was amazing. I heated up leftovers the next day and it was not oily like other places. Tiramisu and cappuccino were perfect!
Had a great meal for a special occasion tonight. There was a huge table of guests so it was quite noisy but the delicious food more than made up for it. The beet salad was a great blend of different tastes, and the scallops were amazing, really enjoyed the sauce and texture! Overall, very much enjoyed my experience!
The restaurant is small but they pack an amazing number of people in and yet the service is great. There is nice outdoor seating. The food is exceptional. The portions are quite generous but we managed to finish everything. The beet salad is amazing. The staff is knowledgeable, considerate and helpful. It is BYOB so the price of the dinner was about $40 each. No dessert as we were too full. A great place!
