As good as ever. My son had the veal chop Francaise and loved it. Braccioli and gnocchi was wonderful. My wife had lamb chops that she thought were as good as she's ever had anywhere. A typical night at the Red Room.

Absolutely phenomenal, my favorite restaurant when I’m at the shore . The food is incredible , everything is delicious and authentic. The pasta is homemade! The staff and owners are wonderful, very friendly. I can’t say enough good things about this place . Any dinner, special event , or party, this should be your spot. Bonus points for having a liquor store right next door!

Server was somewhat rude and not very attentive. It was obvious that this is a place that dotes on “regulars.”
Meal was very good.

Fantastic as always !!! The brussell sprout salad, muscles, and eggplant parm in crock are positively the best. Our waiter Billy always guides us in the right direction with great service and many good suggestions. The singer was also a nice touch. Can't wait to return.

Have always loved the food at Red Room and have to give then kudos for Restaurant Week...we visited several other restaurants that skimped on their portions but not Red Room. They opened their menu and as always the food was delicious and the portions generous.

Red Room is nice for lunch or a family dinner if you are in the neighborhood. It is similar to a number of Italian restaurants in South Jersey in both variety and quality of the food offered.

We went to Red Room Cafe during AC Restaurant Week. The food was amazing! I love that their pasta is fresh and homemade. My husband ordered mussels for app and I can’t believe how fresh they are and cooked to perfection! This place is perfect for date nights. Although the table are so close to each other, I feel like the table next to us can hear the conversation between me and my husband. There was a group of 10 ladies who were sat next to us too. I just don’t think that the Red Room Cafe is an ideal place for group meetings like that.

The food and service at Red Room are always consistently excellent. The owners Jack ,Maria and their son the chef Vinny make you feel like family. Bill is the ultimate last of the great professional waiters. They aim to please - homemade pasta and bread, delicious food choices - a great neighborhood gem.

This was a last minute pick for girls get together that we were very happy about. It was byob( winning!) and everything on the menu looked fabulous. They had a special menu ( similar to restaurant week) for Valentine’s Day that included entree app and dessert that was priced just right. We all had something different and we were not disappointed. The waiter had great suggestions. ( the porkchop was as good as he said it was!). We will be back !

The food was good. It wasn't highly memorable, but it was good. While I liked the friendly atmosphere with the owner explaining the specials over and over, it became a little annoying. The service was weird...it was like people were there, but if I needed them, I'd have to signal them over rather than feeling like we were served properly...but maybe that's their style, and that's fine. BYOB is always nice, so for us that's a plus.

I'll be back! Cozy BYOB with a friendly and attentive staff. Excellent apps (try the grilled octopus) and entrees (veal chop was excellent). Deserts were ok (walnut bread pudding could have been moister), but I'll give that the benefit of the doubt. Definitely worth the visit.

My husband and I have been to Red Room before and were over whelmed with the great food and hospitality. This time our family of 8 took me for my 70th birthday dinner. Every meal was over the top. The waiter was so great. The place was empty and we asked why, the waiter told us they were normally closed on Sundays but they opened just for us. From our family to theirs, thank you for the best birthday ever.
