I made a reservation for six at Seaglass restaurant in Avalon, NJ at 7:00 pm for last Saturday night. We were running a bit late so I called the restaurant to tell them we'd be there about 7:15. I was told that there was a private event being held at the restaurant that night and that it wasn't open to the public. When I told the person on the phone how I set up the CONFIRMED reservation, she apologized and said she'd tell her manager about the issue. My question to Open Table: who "confirms" reservations made on your website: you or the restaurant in question ? If it's you via your computer program, it's a waste of time. Please get back to me with an answer. Thanks.
Food was really really good but it was Saturday night in August and no one was there. Only one other table had diners so it was somewhat awkward with so many staff and so few patrons.
Took family of 11 and room was almost empty, but service very slow. When food finally came, we were one meal short. We all chipped in to feed this person. But his food did come.......with desert.
we order the prime rib special it was over cooked and cold try to eat it could not
The food was average but although the waitress was very pleasant the service was awful. She talked a bit too much and kept forgetting things we needed like a spoon, grated cheese, etc.. and would then have to go what seed like a very long time. In all we were there for 2 1/2 hours and it was not dining--it took at least 1 hour more than necessary.
My table of 4 dined outside by the pool which was very nice. The food though was very disappointing. The Filet had canned asparagus and was tasteless. My pork was dry.
Out of three dinners none were up to the standards I remember
My Wife and I went on Valentines Day. It was a special menu and the food was very good. However it was very expensive.
Visited on Valentines Day, Meal was delicious, wait staff and bartenders were very friendly. They even had a pianist there!
Showed up for our reservation made on open table only to be told that the restaurant was closed for a private party. Unprofessional and maddening, we had to search for another place for our dinner, won't go again.
Our waiter was great! Prime rib night and it was really good.
Would have been nice to know that when I went to the Open Table app and booked my reservation.
Drove all the way to the restaurant only to find out they were closed for a private function.
The front desk person said "oh sorry" come back next weekend.
