Wine Spectator Award of Excellence
Official Steakhouse of Rutgers Athletics
We came here for a milestone birthday dinner
I enjoyed everything
It was very busy but service was very attentive
Everything from cocktails to dessert was delicious
My boyfriend kept commenting how nice it was
Wish we lived closer ( we drove 45 minutes )
To frequent more often
From the minute we walked in and greeted, to the time we left, all I can say is ......EXCELLENT !!!!
Great location for the theatre, good food, great atmosphere, great service. Tables for two a little small, but not impossible.
First time but definitely not the last! Steaks were cooked to perfection. Side dishes were delicious- definitely get the truffle tater tots. Pistachio crusted salmon was out of this world. Our server Natalie was top notch. Can’t wait to go back and try a few more dishes!
Delicious food and outstanding service. Can’t ask for more.
steak was a little tough. sides were very good.
Dinner was great very great service made my birthday really nice.
We have dined here a few times before and have always been very happy with the meal and service. This time the meal was average. We were a little disappointed. For the price, it should be a fantastic and memorable experience overall and we didn't feel this way this time.
Food was excellent from the appetizer to the desert. Service was excellent. Never felt rushed. Timing of food service was spot on. On our desert the chef added a very nice touch and wrote Happy Anniversary on the plate.
Amazing experience & I continue to return to this restaurant.
Routine steak house although does have several non meat dishes for those who choose. Steak was returned as way under cooked as order. They should get rid of the lousy stall bread. The apple desert was without any apple flavor. Waiter was not very attentive as on two occasions had to ask other staff for assistance (like return steak to be more cooked).
We had a great experience with a nice seat in the back room. Very happy to not be seated near the bar as we were last time we visited. Service was excellent and food was outstanding.
We did date night (once again) and it was simply great. The service was attentive but did not disturb. Very professional staff - they should be commended. Drinks came rapidly as did the food. Unlike some places, they don't bring your entree until you are done with the appetizers. Very classy. We had the salmon and filet mignon and both were cooked perfectly. Date night is flexible so I substituted the soup and my wife had the apple salad. Both were great. We highly recommend Steakhouse 85.
One of my favorite spots. Consistently good and very welcoming.
Parking directly across the street, takes the hassle out of finding parking in NB.
I love this place! Perfect spot for lunch - food was great, service was spot on, and I will be going back!
Wasn’t a fan of the strip steak. The others enjoyed the filet Mignon.
Steakhouse 85 consistently has great drinks, food and service.
We like the Date Night meal. We thought it was a little noises than prior visits. The band was very good. We would like to be closer to them. The
Service was extremely good. Steak was excellent. Featured wine was very expensive and very undistinguished. very disappointing. Room was noisy.
Great food with terrific service. I've been here for lunch many times but not for dinner. We will definitely return soon!
Had an amazing time celebrating my boyfriends and my anniversary there. Our server Kaitlyn was polite and attentive. The food was out of this world. The steak was cooked to perfection and the scallops were amazingly tender. Will be returning for our next big celebration.
Excellent food and service as usual. Noise level was high for an early dinner time.
10/10 in my book. Servers are super friendly and outgoing.
They reserved a special booth for us, per my request. We were seated quickly. Service was great for both dinner and the wine. Food tasted great and was prepared correctly. Would definitely return again.
The level of noise was extreme.
We ordered the onion rings as a side and they were very disappointing.
I think they were a product of a frozen Shop Rite product.
I believe our server took away my wife's bottle of wine before it was empty.
Outstanding restaurant celebrating 10 years in New Brunswick, NJ. Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food, with a steep price tag. Right across the street from The Stress Factory comedy club. Our servers were very attentive and our waitress was cheerful and informative. I have been here several times before and it does not disappoint. Don’t like steaks? No problem. Several seafood specials resulted in my date and I having Chilean sea bass and grouper. Both were excellent
Great Service! The best steak I ever had! I would definitely go back again!
This is my 6th or 7th time eating here and every experience has been excellent. I always look forward to eating here. Can't wait to come back.
If you love higher end food and steak and seafood is your go to this is you place. Matty is owner is fabulous.
I had been told by other steak lovers that the steaks were as good or better than Ruth Chris and less expensive. While they are known mostly for their variety of steaks, their specials, particularly focused on seafood. I had the 8 ounce felt which was done medium rare as requested. The bernaise sauce was flavorful but runny. My friend had the grouper special, which was excellent. We each had a banana's foster which was served in a sundae glass. It was very good and not too sweet. As a result of our experience on Saturday, I would say that they steak is as good as Ruth Chris, i.e. very good, though the overall cost is about the same. The ambiance is decidely different. The seating is a mixture of large and small booths and tables with more of a club feel. A small combo provided jazz music which enhanced the experienced but made conversation more difficult.
Visiting son at college
First time there and will definitely go back. Went with my wife and had oysters and salad for appetizers and they were both excellent. She had a filet and I had a Tomahawk steak, we both agreed it was one of the best steaks we have ever had. Throw in a nice bottle of wine and it made for an excellent evening.
Wonderful experience as usual. Our favorite local restaurant. Warm greeting, great food and ambiance. Had the lobster fettuccine and featured wine. Would go back again and have again.
I would eat here again! We had a pleasant experience from the hostess to the waiter. The food was delicious and we were never rushed. The filet mignon was tender and succulent and the wine selection was large. The raw oyster selection was fresh and tasty.
It was pretty active for a Sunday evening too. I highly reccomend this restaurant. We drove one hour to dine here and we were not disappointed.
Everything is A La Carte and a bit pricey for a college town, but the food was delicious and service outstanding.
Somehow they kicked it up a notch. Been here several times and Saturday night was even better than any other visit. Food, service and vibe were just incredible.
Second time there. Food and service was excellent both times.
830 reservation but seated at 855.. what's the point in making reservations if I still have to wait 25 minutes
