Golden East Garden

Reviewed By Robin B - Toms River, New Jersey

Golden East is a small, owner-run restaurant in Midstate Mall, and the absolute BEST Chinese food for many, many miles! They are ALWAYS busy and ALWAYS friendly and welcoming. Several Asian buffets have opened in the spot next to them, and every one closed within a few months...no one can touch the outstanding food, service and reasonable prices!!

Fresco Steak & Seafood

Reviewed By windsgroup - South River, New Jersey

This restaurant is far better than many other restaurants in the area. It would have been five (5) stars but there was limited handicap parking when it was extremely cold outside. I had to park halfway done the strip mall to get one of the only parking spots (handicapped or otherwise). There is simply not enough parking for the volume of patrons.

The atmosphere is simply elegant and totally professional. The waiter was very attentive and considerate to our needs. This restaurant is BYOB since they don't have a liquor license, which is hard to believe since it's an primo restaurant.

The Cesar salad was ginormous and tasty. The seafood specials were divine. They were seasoned extremely perfectly and each dish exhibited a well balance of flavor.
The desserts were the outstanding as well. The coffee was not to my liking even though I am a coffee drinker. This is one area of improvement.

This restaurant gets two thumbs up despite the shortfalls. Hopefully, change can be made so that we can return soon.

Milltown Ice Cream Depot

Reviewed By EGRLNE - Milltown, New Jersey

This quaint small town ice cream parlor is fantastic. They not only have terrific tasting ice cream, they support local events for the schools Milltown children attend & they employee local high school students & the owner, Joan, couldn't possibly be nicer.
They even have a special price for young children who fit under counter height!!
If you try this place, I'm sure you'll like it. The only bad thing can be the wait because they're so popular.

Magnifico's Ice Cream

Reviewed By namnam75 - Bengaluru, India

We ordered four different ice-creams and each one was better than the other.
The hot fudge brownie and hot fudge peanut we're very very delicious.
The ice creams are of very high quality and you can tell it is home made and does not have any added preservatives.
A little harsh on the wallet.

Jimmy's Greek American grill

Reviewed By windsgroup - South River, New Jersey

We were told this restaurant serves authentic Greek food. They were correct. This family owned business caters to their customers. The service and food were great. The only issue is their location in a small strip mall. If you didn't know it was there, you're going to drive by. Spotswood, NJ is a small town and businesses are grouped together. So use your GPS and you will not have any trouble finding it. The atmosphere needs an update. While it is a family-owned business, they need to update the decor. Otherwise, this a great place to eat.

Fiddleheads Restaurant, New American Bistro

BYOB New American bistro in a downtown, art-gallery setting. Amazing food and great service. Serving lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch (closed Monday and Tuesday).

Reviewed By MCA2241 - Chesterton, Indiana

I highly recommend this restaurant. Attention to detail and service was excellent. Food was amazing! Turbo liner burger was yummy - angus beef, French fried onion straws, bacon-onion jam, Dubliner cheese. Fries were crispy and Cole slaw was fresh, bright, and crispy. Hubby loved crab cake melt. For dessert, pecan pie cake was perfect - served warm, with whipped cream.

Reviewed By CCH1223 - Monroe, New Jersey

We decided to try La Tavola Cucina with two other couples for dinner after reading several positive reviews. We were a little disappointed. Service was very slow. One couple's appetizer wasn't served until after we had finished ours. he drink order was mixed up. Several different servers handled our table, which might have caused the confusion. Our dinners were good.

Labebe

Reviewed By BSolom - Chicago, Illinois

Nicely flavored appetizers include hummus presented appetizingly, good stuffed grape leaves, garlicky eggplant baba ganough, each served with thin pieces of flat pita.

Entrees included a wonderful spicy grilled lamb sausage, chicken kebab pieces and roasted vegetables served over generous quantities of rice.

Desert included fresh baklava and chocolate cake. This restaurant manages large groups very easily.

Sophie's Bistro

Classic French Bistro

Reviewed By PammyBret7 - Holliston, Massachusetts

We attended a wedding in Somerset,NJ, took a 15 minute drive to Sophie's Bistro and have been talking about it ever since. Delightful experience, from the atmosphere to the service to the quality and taste of the food.

Mussels appetizer was plentiful and tasty and my husband had escargot. We both had the special beef tenderloins, but we could have split one dinner due to portion size.

Restaurant owner visited each table, genuinely interested in how customers were enjoying their meal.

Although we did not sit at the bar, we noted it was great, seems some locals met their on a regular basis. Wine list had some very nice choices at reasonable prices.

Although the restaurant was full, it was not too noisy, due to its two rooms and limited number of tables.

We will definitely recommend this restaurant and dine here when in the area again.
