We have been eating at Varka for years and they reliably provide a wonderful experience. Great food service and ambiance. My favorite "nice" dinner place.
Outstanding service, delicious food! We were seated immediately and waiter was always available, but not in an intrusive way. Food was excellent and cocktail very good! My favorite restaurant in Bergen County.
The food was excellent as was the service. But it was loud and pricey.
Seafood offerings were extremely varied and I'm sure the freshest northern NJ restaurants can
diplay so close to NYC. Prices are a bit of a gulp....my guest and I had one appetizer, 2 entrees,
no drinks, no dessert. The tally was over $100 b-4 tip. Our portions were average. I would
make this a special occasion eatery. Atmosphere is very warm and inviting.... but quite noisy.
Loved the appetizer line-up, tasty really unique esp. the grilled calamari and excellent spinach pie.
Great atmosphere good service pricy
Excellent appetizers to share from meatballs to mussels and octopus especially. Great time had by all. Thanks once again.
Always a pleasurable evening.
Food was ok. Nothing special.
Not worth the price tag.
Get together often with friends here. Service and food are outstanding. I have celiac and the kitchen is always careful with my food. And my favorite waiter always happens to be waiting my table and looks out for me too!
Always exceptional service, extremely delicious fresh food, beautiful ambiance. My favorite restaurant in NJ. LOVE!!
We have eaten here several times before and the experience has been consistently good! We had a party of 6, arrived at 6:30 with reservations and were seated immediately.
The service was very good. A head waiter and 2 servers attending to our table (and others). The food was excellent and so was the service. I am always amazed at how busy they are, even at 6:30 PM. The place was packed and then they turned the tables over and it was packed again.
The courses are timed well and we never felt rushed - we were there until about 8:30. However, be prepared because this level of fresh seafood and quality meats and service comes at a price. These are the kinds of prices you will pay in a good Manhattan seafood restaurant or steak house, without having to go to Manhattan. Worth treating yourself for special occasions!
Must try the octopus appetizer and the greek donuts for dessert!
Food and service were both excellent. The venue is very noisy even though they have installed noise abatement fixtures on ceiling. Definitely one of the best restaurants In Bergen County!
The food was exquisite, service excellent!
Outstanding Greek food. You'll pay the price, like $28 for Octopus appetizer but it is delicious and a good quantity. Great service and a happening place. Perfect place to go on a special occasion.
Favorite restaurant in NJ! Food is best around. Lobster Santorini is a fav
Not your average Bergen County restaurant. NY City vibe. Nice bar area.
Noise level is better than in years past but still noisy. Food always fresh!
Great food! Service was just okay, it wasn't very busy and we waited 20 min to place order.
Very nice. All good
Always perfect! Our fave restaurant!
The food and ambiance were excellent and supported by attentive service. However the noise level interferes with the enjoyment.
LOVED our birthday celebration at Varka! We started our celebration at the bar...grapefruit mint cocktails were sooo good! The evening continued to be wonderful throughout our dinner because we were in the hands of your best server...lucky us! Thank you for the special added touch of the birthday dessert!
great variety of food options.....fish is excellent....bar is quite happening!
Always a great lunch at Varka. Fresh fish and great wine !!
I've been there twice - exceptional fresh and delicious food, outstanding service, beautiful and comfortable. Tables are spaced nicely. Acoustics are excellent. 5 Stars all the way.
Much too noisy. They need to do some sound re-engineering. Food was good. Fish came out cooked but luke warm. Service was excellent.
Crazy busy and loud. Great food highly recommend. If closer would go back soon.
We absolutely love this restaurant. It always delivers an amazing meal and has superb service. Chic, sophisticated dining, yet it had a relaxed feel. Everything is fresh and perfect. Varka also has a wonderful wine list.
Fabulous food and setting!
The food, atmosphere and service, as always is superior. This continues to be the best restaurant in the area!
Consistently high quality food. Pace of service is balanced and considerate. All the little extras are appreciated.
Food never disappoints. Service felt a bit rushed this time around, which gave it more of a diner-like feel as opposed to a fine dining experience. I think they added a bunch of tables for two to accommodate the belated Valentines day dinners for couples such as us, but it felt too crowded & there was too much through traffic from the staff which was also mildly annoying. Food will keep us coming back. 🐙🦐🦑🐟
Very delicious meal and nice restaurant. Very busy but food came out on time.
Appetizer sardines and oysters were good bread execellent
Main course snapper and lamb chops bland
Vegetables green beans and gigante very good
Overall not worth the money
Always amazing from the fresh Dover sole to the scrumptious pork chop. Never disappoints.
Always a great meal This is the place you were guaranteed the freshest seafood and the best service
Wonderful dining experience.
Outstanding-Tomato Salad and diver scallops! The pita spreads are a great app.
