Turning Point

Reviewed By Tara Heagele - Trenton, New Jersey

This place is always packed, so expect a wait. But with ocean views and delicious food, I'm not surprised. I had the Big Easy Benedict (a New Orleans style eggs benedict with corn bread, avocado, creole onions, peppers, chorizo, and a cajun hollandaise sauce) and a gigantic s'mores hot chocolate. This was a perfect meal to prepare me for ice skating next to the ocean. I will be back!

Salt Creek Grille - Rumson

Reviewed By kazu79 - New York City, New York

5:30 reservations. Got seated at 6:15. Understandably holiday I get it. Had a Sangria at the bar where service was great.
Finally seated and was then informed our Turkey selection on a fixed menu was white meat only no dark meat left. Having been here twice before on such an occasion one time I got an entire leg. The next second servings. This time around no second servings. Could barely get the server to get us a round of drinks. And when desert came out I substituted my pie for a scoop of ice cream and was Charged for an ala mode? When asked well then I’ll bring the pie home I was told I substituted. Was not going to argue over $3.00 not it’s the point.
When I got home and reviewed my cc charge I was charged three adults. I have two children one 11 and one 12. Yes he 12 looks like he is going on 18 but informed the service of this prior. My fault for not “reading” the entire bill I guess I Focused in the ice cream no pie charge lol. Well the Turkey was like a salt cured ham. Who could mess up veggies and potatoes they were good. But the lack of service. Seeing everyone else get pie and their ice cream and offered coffee which we were not and the lack of a dark meat selection just ended out visits to this establishment and the surprise adult charge. $180 bucks plus the tip and oh forgot the over cooked bacon scalloped wrap shrimp that my son wouldn’t even eat I forgot to mention. This is was one star visit. Our server we do not know but she signed the back of our receipt with and h or c. Older woman who apparently was just going through the motions and basically didn’t give two cents. Would have walked out as soon as we were informed of the lack of selection. But on a holiday evening we decided to go a different route and was very disappointed. Two extra stars added for our previous visit and the bar tenders and hostess who were nice and accommodating as well as the ambience. Other than that take a pass. Sorry.

My Kitchen Witch Cafe

Reviewed By Fletch1946 - Fair Haven, New Jersey

My Kitchen Witch is an adorable cafe open generally for breakfast, brunch and lunch. It is lovely and the food is great, but a little far away for us for those meals. However, on Friday night the serve three course, price fix, dinners for $29.95. You can, and should, bring your own wine or beer. There are always two choices ( generally a soup or a salad) to start, three choices (generally meat, fish and vegetarian) to follow, and two choices for dessert. Last night the six of us dined on shaved Brussels sprouts ceasar salad or dairy free asparagus soup to start, bacon wrapped fillet with sun dried mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, or seared scallops over butter and brown sugar sweet potatoes with grilled asparagus, or a vegetarian curry. It all drew rave reviews. IMHO the desserts are the weak point, not bad but not up to the other offerings. To my taste they are too sweet. But if you like real sweets, you will almost certainly love them. Worth a visit.

Anjelica's Restaurant

Reviewed By Sockster - New York City, New York

This restaurant has aged so well...like fine wine. The service is so professional and amazing. From the waitstaff to the bussers- every guest is treated like a VIP.

The food is terrific. This time we had our standby grilled octopus with beans. Perfectly grilled and oh so tasty. A special homemade pasta was perfectly cooked al dente and was delicious. For dinner we had the special veal chop parm. This dish is the best and perfect to share.

All in all, Anjelicas is a great restaurant. It's gets really busy so even with a reservation you might have to wait....but it's totally worth it!

Highly recommended!

The cuisine is delicious! Best salmon with wild rice and sautéed mushrooms that I have ever enjoyed! The butternut squash soup was heavenly! My friend's mushroom soup was amazing! And the blueberry crumb cake dessert was "to die for"! The service and the ambience are impeccable we will definitely return very soon!

Our BYOB is cozy and welcoming with candle light on every table. So pick up your favorite bottle of wine and call Porcini today for reservations!

Food is not just food--especially when you go to a restaurant to eat. There has to be some aesthetic pleasure surrounding the cuisine--the experience should be complete and pleasurable to all senses. The food here is wonderful. The chef has such a deft hand at everything he touches--huge flavor that doesn't slap you with it's fabulousness. I cannot recommend the culinary delights here enough...THAT SAID...the restaurant resembles the breakfast room at a Comfort Inn. I understand that perhaps the owners care more about food than how the room looks. Or maybe they ran out of money and ran to Marshall's for their decor. Offensive? NO. Evocative? No. Welcoming? No. Overhead lights blaring off of shiny tables does not make for a charming atmosphere. Just a few sweet touches would make this place a GEM--because the food and service were stellar.

Bahrs Landing Seafood Restaurant

Reviewed By Michele45944 - Red Bank, New Jersey

Our group comes here every year for a Christmas luncheon and we always have a great time! First of all, the river/bay view is lovely. The restaurant itself is quaint. The food was so delicious! The meal begins with wonderful biscuits and Cole slaw. Then, everyone loved their clam chowders, whether they were New England and Manhattan. Delicious and full of clams!! Next was the entree; my scrod was wonderful and plentiful accompanied by tasty potatoes and vegetables. I heard great things about the broiled seafood platter, chicken, and beef dish as well!I didn't have dessert but my friends were all raving about the pumpkin cheesecake and Frosty cake. I am going to make a point of visiting again soon- the service was also wonderful- warm and welcoming!

Undici

Undici, replete with ancient stone, wood, tile and plaster, is a faithful recreation of a Tuscan farmhouse. The rustic cuisine is curiously reflective of its surroundings. Every effort has been made to source the best of the best ingredients and formidable skill has been required to lovingly assemble them.We also pride ourselves with our extensive and carefully chosen wine selection of over 300 wines, and with our Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator.

Reviewed By Adrienne W - Sea Bright, New Jersey

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant on at least 20 occasions as the food and service have always been good however it will be a long time before we ever return. They just seem to have a horrible time with honoring reservations. On average they have had the table that we requested 1 out of 5 times. This last time was the worst. It was a lovely evening with music playing outside where we requested a table. When we checked in they told us our table was not ready. We asked when it would be and they really had no idea as whoever was at our table had just gotten desert, so we guessed it would be at least a half hour before they actually left. As it was already 8:45pm we opted to sit at the bar for dinner. The food took forever to arrive and when management asked about our evening we told them what had happened and that it had happened almost every time we came there. The manager just walked away and apparently told our server to offer us dessert. Nothing makes us angrier than when management does this. Why would I want to extend what has already been an unpleasant evening? Perhaps ask what could be done? Offer to take something off the bill? Offer a glass of wine? But please don't offer dessert!

Woody's Ocean Grille

Just a few steps from the Atlantic Ocean in Sea Bright-one of the Jersey Shore's iconic beaches-Woody's offers the area's top fine casual dining destination. The unique atmosphere at Woody's is somewhat upscale, yet very laid back. Our menu is California coastal with a southwestern flare which includes our famous fish tacos, fresh seafood, and exciting southwestern creations. You will always find something satisfying at Woody's.

Ok. I should say more. But, shamefully, I keep ordering that. Repeatedly and over and over again. It's just so good. I mean, I've tried other things and they are good, but that dish? Oh man. I substitute the rice for the spicy mashed potatoes and give the stink eye to anyone who may want to "try just a bite". Mine. All mine. The atmosphere is definitely laid back, you'll see everything from people fresh off the sand to people dressed up for date night, it's all good. The service is fun and super chill and all about you being happy and making sure your buzz doesn't wane (if that's your thing). Definitely worth a call ahead on the weekend to see about wait times since it gets busy, which I love to see (local businesses deserve to thrive!), as long as they don't run out of my beloved Wasabi Encrusted Tuna! Happy eating, ya'll!
