Black Friday brunch, had the place almost to ourselves. Two large, attractive shrimp cocktails, one salmon filet, one crab cake, all tasty and well prepared. Apple chutney with the crab, and rice with the salmon, were eh. Pleasant surprise: deserts included; chocolate cake and cheesecake, both rich and filling. Bottomless mimosas were okay.
Great experience. My only complaint is they somehow skipped us with the dinner rolls. Which I certainly didn’t need. Everything was delicious.
Beautiful romantic setting. Excellent food and excellent service. Celebrating 25th wedding anniversary. The restaurant is all decorated for the holidays with silver and white sparkling stars and crystals hanging everywhere from the ceiling. The waitress scattered rose petals on our tablecloth. We sat "on the stairs" at a beautiful warm cozy table. Filet mignon was outstanding as was the specail mahi mahi. And I loved the "fig newtini" drink. I will be back again
An amazing dinner tonight at Scarborough Fair Restaurant! The most romantic, cozy atmosphere with the most attentive and helpful staff. I messaged them on their website to let them know I wanted to celebrate an accomplishment for my fiance and they went above and BEYOND for us! Table decorations, addressing us by name when we walked in and congratulating by specifics, and giving us champagne to toast with! The food was incredible. Our waitress Hannah recommended incredible dishes and cocktails. I got the short rib special with gnocchi and my fiance got the scallops. We were in heaven. Nothing beats the decor inside. It is so warm and beautiful. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!
Soooo adorable, the bartender doesn’t fear tilting the bottle, the service is LIGHTNING fast like WOW and super nice, food ties it all together as phenom. When they knew it was a birthday they our confetti on the table and a little special tinsel center piece, above and beyond
Everything was great except for the noise. The restaurant manager should place large parties "that are celebrating an occasion" away from those of us who are there for a couples romantic dinner. Plus it was slightly over priced. I've had the same quality food at other establishment like "Rat's restaurant in Hamilton NJ "for a lot less money.
Great restaurant. Food was amazing and service too! Highly recommend. Love the decorations
Food and service were outstanding.
Second time this week dining at Scarborough Fair, and it did not disappoint!
We arrived early than our reservation to have a cocktail at the bar. The maitre d' came over to us to let us know our table was ready whenever we were.
Service started slowly, as we sat a little too long without someone welcoming us and/or taking a drink order. Once the server came over, the rest of the evening was smooth sailing. There were 6 of us, and everyone loved their meal. Highly recommended!
Our favored restraint !!!
They need to lower their music when there are many diners present. It was a bit too loud.
Wonderful in a cozy atmosphere.
I realized after leaving that I don’t dine there enough. Happy hour makes for a bustling bar but adds to the ambiance. One restaurant not to be missed
Very nice waiter
The experience was great, it is unfortunate that staffing is low as it makes it difficult for the service providers
I love the atmosphere of this place but we had to wait an extra 40 minutes after our reservation time to be seated because they were short staffed. In addition, they ran out of the meals we were hoping to get. It was a special night for us but the experience wasn't what we were hoping for.
Great service excellent food fair price can't ask for anything more
Everything was delightful. The music seemed a bit loud for dining and having a conversation.
Great ambience! Great food! Great service! We will definitely be back soon !
food was awful,. I returned it and left without eating. The app ( chicken meatballs ) were hard and dry. The coconut wasabi fish was inedible. Ice cold on one side and scorching hot on the other side, dry as a bone and horrible flavor. Great martini.
Hubbys rack of lamb consisted of 4 mini lamb chops. ( He said they were good though.)We came home and ordered pizza. Came here last month and dinner was very good. Will try it one more time before we eliminate it for good.
My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Scarborough Fair.
Food was great. Risotto was delicious.
Seating on the staircase was lovely and intimate.
It was our first time here. What an adorable place! Quaint. Clean. Special. First time but certainly not our last. The food was superb. The service was outstanding. The ambiance is special.
A group of six ladies met for lunch. Three had fish, three had a Mexican-style dish. Everything was very tasty.
Requested medium on the filet mignon , with pink showing. Very well done was delivered. Waitress offered to replace it, but since my spouses salmon was on the table, that was not an option. Left most of the meal. Did receive a free dessert to go.
Haven’t eaten there in many years. Food was outstanding! Great little bar area., looking forward to going back for small plates and drinks at the bar. Totally an intriguing restaurant that has everything going for it! Our server, Cara was delightful.
Quaint architectural design and layout of this restaurant intrigues first timers like my dining partner. Nicholas was an outstanding and personable waiter who made our experience thoroughly enjoyable. Nicely paced, deliciously prepared!
Never disappoints - top notch. The owner was personally refilling our water glasses even as we lingered after dessert. Food and service was spectacular.
This was our first experience at Scarborough Fair, and probably our last. The restaurant was so noisy that we could not hear each other. The food was very disappointing. We shared a Caesar Salad, which was not much more than a dish of chopped lettuce. The Octopus appetizer was just a few slices of grilled Octopus. My Lamb Chops were prepared raw, when I asked for medium. I could go on, but my point is that the restaurant did not live up to it's reviews or expectations.
Six for dinner and everyone loved their entres. The veal chop special was wonderful. My husband's steak cooked just as ordered. Halibut on the regular menue received rave reviews as well. Waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.
Both Service and food were terrible
A very enjoyable experience. Would highly reccomend.
Once again Scarborough Fair hits the mark. Great atmosphere with even better food. Michael, the host/owner goes out of his way to make sure you are taken care of from
Start to finish!
We went with another couple and absolutely loved this place. The food was So good. The service excellent
great food ,fantastic staff.
Our waiter Nicolas is very friendly and attentive.
manager Mike is very personable takes great care of customer needs
Came after seeing your ad for Osso Buco. We had a 6 p.m. om Friday and were told you were out of it until 7:30 after serving 4 orders prior to 6. Had a Ribeye and it was very good but my tastebuds were looking for Osso. CaN't understand why you hadn't cooled more.
We were unhappy with the loud music and several noisy children next to us.
Was wonderful !! As always
Staff was extremely helpful
Friendly courteous staff
Nick our server was awesome! Thank You
I went here for lunch with 4 friends / it was my first time in the restaurant. I had read some up and down reviews during Covid so wanted to try for lunch first. I was so happy with all aspects of the restaurant. First of all the interior is so unique and different, especially as you enter as it has a few tables as you walk up stairs of a rounded building. Those tables seemed very cozy - we were in a booth that had plenty of room for us all to spread out. Our waitress was quite efficient and attentive! We all were impressed with the diverse menu, I had the crab cake meal and it did not disappoint! I will say it’s a little on the pricey side for lunch at most meals close to 20. Although they did include a small side salad which was nice.
I went upstairs to use the restroom which was really nice looking snd the bar looked great!! I can’t wait to bring my family back for dinner!! Highly recommend
Very very whimsical. Service very slow. Food was good. I’d return
The Old Fashioned at the bar, made with Asbury Park bourbon was delicious. The Rack of Lamb was outstanding. Great service, friendly and made great meal recommendations. Desserts were outstanding as well. We'll be bad again.
