First time there, food is a great value for the money! Perfect night to sit outside and enjoy a great meal!
Our waiter, Gus is the best, we use to go to Stony Hill Inn and Gus was always our waiter, very professional and warm!
I highly recommend going there!

First time at this Restaurant, from the start I could tell it was gonna be a good experience.. The Bartender Francesca was very helpful regarding the menu. our server Augie was very good , the menu didn’t offer a Surf/Turf option, Augie said it wasn’t a problem to put a Scallop & Filet Mignon together…We were never rushed & were able enjoy our conversation between courses.. The food was top shelf. An overall great experience… Will definitely be back …

A beautiful evening. We enjoyed exceptional service. Although the linen table cloth should be cleared of crumbs with every course ~ that is why we didn’t stay for dessert ~ it wasn’t appealing with dinner still among us. I expected a higher level of quality in the food ~ flavor. However, I know many restaurants are hurting with supplies and such.

More menu choices for vegetarians that I cannot make “at home” would be great.

We have been going for years. Hope this review helps.

Sanzari's New Bridge Inn is exceptional. The food is wonderful and the staff is attentive without being overbearing. However, the person who impressed me the most was the valet attendant. He remembers which car belongs to which guest without giving him a ticket! He is amazing.

I had a catered affair upstairs for 60 people. I can’t tell you how terrific every member of the staff was from the bus boys to the bartenders, waitstaff and the best, Sammy. Food and service was excellent. Not one person attending had any complaints. Rather they had nothing but praise. Can u imagine 60 people totally satisfied by everything. The minute I put down my drink, it was filled. I can only say that Joe Sanzari should be proud of his staff. Job well done!,,,,

What can I say?
Flash floods,blizzards, retreating patriots during our democracy’s lowest moments…..apparently, Sanzari’s New Bridge Inn has been there!!
Excellent Service, Professional Staff, Excellent Food!!
My story is below if you are interested in a July 8 2021 experience that is worth a read:
Last evening, in what eventually turned into a great experience, first started on this open table “app” …simple, easy confirmation and info sent to Sanzari’s New Bridge Inn…no issues at all………..,,
Neither, the “app” and/or Sanzari’s could have predicted the flash flood we had here in Bergen County this evening.
The Sanzari’s New Bridge Inn staff could not be more accommodating!!
My family and I had been there numerous times throughout the years and always were pleased.
But , perhaps, the best day was today’s eve of my mother’s 98th birthday (just between your readers and I, she has always been Sweet Sixteen….as they said years ago..please do not repeat..lol).
I had decided to take an Uber days before …just to make it easier for the two of us to enjoy the evening ……just her son and mom!! However….at the end of our Uber ride we could not literally make it halfway down the street (severe flash thunderstorm).
The maitre de and I had numerous calls, as we were one half bloc away.
A real long story short, even during the most challenging times the staff at the New Bridge Inn, are there to make any occasion great!

The food and service is outstanding, however, the noise level in the room was not enjoyable at all. I have been there before when there was entertainment, but Friday night it was not at all enjoyable. The singer was very loud, and the music behind the singer was even louder, with an increased base. It made it quite uncomfortable to enjoy dinner and conversation. Unfortunately, I will only return when there is no music.

Beautiful enclosed patio . Lovely nibbles for the table ( parmesan, olives, peppers, tomato concasse oil etc). Spedini appetizer was yummy. BUT entrees were awful with iodiney shrimp for me and acidic , barely cooked marinara for him ( over lasagna) . If you can’t get the sauce right in an Italian restaurant you’ve got a problem ( AND the prices are too high for same.) Disappointing

The shrimp coctail and crabcake appetizers were great.
My steak was supposed to be medium rare but turned out medium well. I was not asked by the waiter how the food was and didn't have the nerve to wave him over to tell him, especially after I saw him pick/wipe his nose with his finger and then serve another table. We chose to leave before desert.

We have been here several times over the last few years for special occasions and with visiting relatives. The menu is very interesting and there are always enticing specials.
Service is outstanding. For this level of cuisine, the prices are not crazy. And they also offer thin-crust pizzas, burgers and the like.
