Great food always! And high marks for adhering to COVID regulations.
Just be aware that if you bring your own wine you will be charged $35.00. I wish I had this information before my wine was opened. Other than that the food was good and the outdoor aspect was great.
Food was plentiful and excellent.
Service superb. Pleasant outdoor dining with fans to keep it cool.
Excellent dinner, hostess was very accommodating when we weren't too pleased with the table they were going to sit us at. She immediately gave us another table that was bigger and in a much better spot. Wait staff was excellent and very professional ! Very happy with our experience at Varka....It "is" pricey though!
We had eaten here before, & enjoyed it. This time, however, the service was substandard, our fish overcooked & disappointing, and overall, not what one would expect from a restaurant of Varka’s level.
Everything here is freshly prepared - the fish is excellent with many choices.
The food was incredible and our waiter as well
Fantastic experience with all the COVID-19 restrictions followed to a “t”
We will be returning soon... thank u so much
Best outdoor dining yet. Carpeted tent with lots of fans. Still great food quality and service.
Varka’s food is always excellent but they did an amazing job to serve food safely using CDC guidelines. The tables were spaced safely apart, all servers wore masks and were attentive as always. We’ve never had a disappointing experience as Varka is top notch.
We travel 30 minutes to dine here. The food is consistently excellent. They created an outdoor dining experience that feels like a restaurant extension and not a parking lot with tables. We will be back!
Excellent as usual
Food was wonderful, what we've always come to expect from Varka. From a COVID perspective we felt very safe. Every precaution taken.
Under the circumstances(Covid) the noise from the street on your front patio was annoying. Having said that, my party’s experience was truly a treat and a wonderful experience. We all felt absolutely safe and your staff was excellent at creating an atmosphere of attentive, fine dining. Kudos to them and the people in charge. It comes from the top, always. We will be back, I hope soon. Thank you all.
Favorite restaurant in NJ!
Great time, staff wonderful, restaurant very clean. Definitely be returning.
Delicious seafood and attentive service. Outdoor dining was comfortable inside a large tent with lots of fans.
They have a lovely tent that transported us away. The food is remarkable as is the service. We totally needed this special afternoon.
Amazing!!! Top shelf.....Stavros runs a great show. Team Varka has it down.
Varka did a great job creating a sophisticated and relaxing ambiance with the required outside dining. The food was delicious as always, tables were comfortably spread apart and wait staff wore masks. I felt safe and comfortable and would definitely recommend it as a lovely evening out.
Fabulous as always ❤️👏
Just spectacular... making the most out of the outdoor dining situation. It was an enjoyable night out. Everything was delicious. Can not exit to go back.
Not up to their normal standards. Service was non existent and food was not very good.
Food & Service was very good, nice night for outside dining. Birthday celebration, dessert with a candle. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Food was very fresh and well prepared...the staff was friendly and attentive...
as always first class food and service, well worth five stars
Everything was perfect! We’ve been there many times and never a complaint. Expensive but worthy!
We love Varka! I was nervous that after COVID it wouldn’t be the same. I couldn’t have been more wrong — it was as fantastic as ever! The langoustines are SO DELICIOUS and the fresh fish was melt in your mouth. Even the patio seating was well done and not overly warm even on a warm night. Great to see one of our favorite places continue to deliver an amazing dinner experience.
Great Experience with my Wife! the octopus, oysters, lobster, salad, fish and Galactobourico were delicious!
We went for our daughters Confirmation dinner and the food and atmosphere were great!
Great outdoor area, atmosphere and food
Excellent food and service.................."....................
Varka is always a favorite and even more so during the pandemic. A tent top has been erected in the usual outdoor seating area so the wonderful food can be enjoyed rain or shine. Tables are spaced apart and the waiters wore both masks and gloves plus the menu is now disposable. Couldn't have felt safer while enjoying the fish of the day with corn risotto while my companion enjoyed the always superb lamb chops with mashed potatoes.
It was wonderful to see all the familiar faces at Varka! Same wonderful staff, same wonderful service! With all the issues restaurants face operating during these difficult times (including supply chain, staffing, seating guests, etc) the food was perfect, cocktails were perfect, atmosphere was perfect! Thank you Varka!
Fresh delicious seafood lunch served in a delightful outdoor patio. This was my first experience dining out since COVID-19, and it was all just perfect! I will be back soon.
Excellent as always. Quality food and great service.
7/12/20. Excellent food, great choices, and attentive service, all wearing masks!
Food was very fresh.....service and staff are very friendly and attentive....
Varka is always delicious and consistent. It is very pricey, which is understandable for the fish and meat. But some items, like a few of the appetizers and pretty basic salads, are overpriced. The service is very good, and the ambience is great.
Varka never disappoints. Only problem was ordering too much because everything looked so good. Thank you for the complimentary dessert for our anniversary! Outdoor dining was well maintained.
Excellent, creative food. Service is top notch. This is the restaurant to go to for the best quality, well prepared seafood.
