Panini Bay Waterfront Restaurant
It was closed!!!!! We had made this Oct 21st reservation thru Open Table during the first week of October. However, it turned out that the restaurant closed for the season on Oct 14th. Disappointed about the lack of coordination between Panini Bay and Open Table.
Love Pannini Bay. Good find. Third time there. On our list for often places to go
Great & delicious
Food and service excellent as usual. When I got home I realized I totaled my receipt incorrectly. Called back and they were very busy. Assured me they would call back to rectify....I hope they follow through, if not, I will be extremely disappointed.
Ok...restaurant just called back as promised and took care of issue!!! THANK YOU Panini Bay...see you next year!
We had the ravioli with Bolognese sauce. It was excellent! We will definitely be going back soon!
Awesome food and service. The best in the area! A great mix of seafood and Italian.
It was a very nice dinner with friends! The view and food options were wonderful! The staff was pleasant and contributed to our nice experience!
Sure wish they offered s salad with dinner, for price you pay, would make it better.
Great service and well prepared meals. Always consistent with fresh ingredients.
Loved this place pre-sandy. A little disappointed in the portions and prices now since rebuilt & new ownership. Food is inarguably good and a lot of menu choices. We had a great table with water & Atlantic City views. They could have done/ still could do better organizing & maximizing the parking spaces-all that space under the raised building seems wasted & we were scrambling for a parking spot.
My wife and I decided to finally try Panini Bay for our 43 anniversary. It was about a 40 minute drive but definitely worth the ride. We will be frequenting PBfrom now on!
I’ve dined here many times and the food never disappoints. The The Bolanaise is the best in the tri state area!
Have been there many times for lunch but this was our first time for dinner. Great experience will definitely return. The food was phenomenal. The scallops were the best we ever tasted. Every meal was delicious. Desserts were Devine. Waitress was great. The only thing that would have made it better was if we could have seen The sunset. It was raining that night.
The ambiance of Panini Bay is fantastic. The panorama of the bay is just lovely. The food was delicious. I had a special steak offering, while the others had fish, pasta and pork chops. The artichoke appetizer is something that I would order again. I love that it's a "bring your own" wine restaurant. The desserts were equally delicious. My only complaint is the noise level. it was a Saturday night and it was busy...and loud!
Well worth the visit...can't wait to go again. Next summer, we will try it by boat.
We had the halibut and the flounder milanase and disappointed in both. Halibut was dry but when dipped in the seasoned evoo served with the bread it was elevated to what I expected from this seafood restaurant. The flounder was lighted breaded and covered in a nicely dressed salad which it gave it much needed flavor and moisture. But it really should have been prepared to be delcicious as a stand alone. The crusty bread and evoo were very good, as was the service, and the location. Just disappointed in the food.
Wonderful from beginning to end. Loved loved loved it.
We are local and it remains our favorite place!!!!!!!!!!’.........
Our server was great in making recommendations and honest about what to try and what isn’t so popular. Food was good - we have some lives and a like. Will definitely be back! Liked it was BYOB and didn’t charge a cooking fee. Only negative I could say is the noise level was extremely high and hard to have a conversation with people at your table.
The fish meal was over cooked. Dessert cake was tasty, but too small a portion. Waitress was not friendly or caring.
Had to go back for their linguine in white clam sauce before summer’s end. Delicious as always!
Beautiful view of the bay. Lunch food was delicious and fresh! BYOB Will definitely go back!
The service was excellent. The hostess seated us promptly, even though we were early for our reservation.
The appetizers were a bit slow coming out but they were worth the wait. Besides a lot of staff have just headed back to school. The entrees were excellent as usual as were the desserts. The service is always performed with a smile.
The service here is great! The food was delicious but small portions. The view is nice and very relaxing.
Never disappoints. Shrimp and grits....amazing
Lovely spot with a beautiful view. Party of four and everyone loved their choice. Very fresh flounder, delicious shrimp linguine. We had reservations and they were ready for us at the time of our reservation. Only negative was not a lot of easy access parking.
Food was excellent but the noise coming from upstairs was horrible
This is one of our summer regulars. The only negative on this visit was the NE chowder came out room temp. The waitress immediately agreed to replace it and delivered another, pretty much the same temp.
Somewhat of a disappointment.
A great place for dinner with an amazing view of the bay.
Always enjoyable!! Great food, great people!! We’ve recommended Panini to several people and are never disappointed.
Great food with an amazing view!
Panini Bay is a very special byob restaurant with breathtaking Bay views, delightful varied menu, new jersey wine selection and and their staff is very attentive, efficient and courteous. Do not miss this extraordinary lovely dining experience.
Beautiful view and good food. Noise level extremely high making it difficult to have conversation. Waitress was delightful but she was the only one and she had to handle seating and the phone
First time visit with girl friends. We enjoyed the whole experience. The food was great as well as the service and ambiance.
Will return with our husbands.
We had a table right next to one of the windows overlooking the bay which was perfect. Unfortunately it was an overcast day but we could tell how beautiful the view would be on a sunny day. The food was good... not amazing but not bad in any way. Our service was excellent. We were celebrating our anniversary and would strongly recommend Panini Bay for a special occasion or date night.
Panini Bay is a great place for great food, friendly service at a reasonable price. The staff is always very friendly, from the owner to the waitresses. My wife and I have been there several times and have always had a great experience.
Amazing as always...if you haven't tried dinner here, you're missing out!
Don’t tell too many people about how good tgis place is as you may not be able to find a table once people know of this gem.
We eat here regularly. Food is consistently great. Servers are very attentive and friendly. In season you need to make reservations if you’re going on a weekend. It’s BYOB but they carry wine from a local winery to purchase if you forgot (or need some more). Our local ‘go to’ place.
Delicious as always. Very friendly, attentive staff. My only complaint is that it’s very noisy!
