Thoroughly enjoyed our 1st experience at Goodfellas ! Valet parking made arrival easy. The two entrees we ordered were excellent. They split the serving of both entrees without making an issue of it or charging us extra. The service was spot-on. The ambience is lovely. We got lucky, arriving on a Wednesday, because they have music (a D.J.) Wed., Fri. & Sat. nights ! Their bread is so good; we overdid it on dipping into the wonderfully-seasoned EVOO. Sammy, the Maitre D', was attentive & helpful! Looking forward to returning !

Our European courtyard, complete with romantic water features, is open each summer season from May 15th through October 15th.
It's been over a decade since I dined at this restaurant, just too expensive for frequent visits. Intimate setting, nice ambiance, quiet without being stuffy. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, the wine service was impeccable as four of us celebrating a birthday drank our way through three bottles. You have to appreciate the very limited menu choices as a tradeoff for quality to enjoy dining here. The 2-savory, 1-sweet prix fixe was definitely enough food, and I can recommend the fried artichoke and the crab cake; my friends also raved about the duck, the sirloin, and the tuna; each dish had many other side tastes and different items to accompany them. Food was original, and there were bursts of several tastes and flavors and textures on every plate, but curiously, the presentation of each was the same, a pile of circles in the middle of the plate. Both the duck and the crab cake had an onion ring circling the main protein. The server not only did not know which diner had ordered which dish, he could not identify which dish was which, making for confusion. At this price point, I expect the sang-froid and precision of a seasoned diner waitress, at least. I applaud that no one tried to remove a plate until all of us had finished, halleluljah someone still trains servers for that. Then we ordered coffee, and one of us asked that hers not be served until after dessert, the French custom, and that it be served hot. That request was honored, but no one asked when the rest of us wanted ours; I expected my coffee to arrive with dessert and was disappointed it wasn't. Worse was that having chosen a $9 hazelnut cappuccino, I was expecting unsweetened hazelnut-flavored coffee; instead it was clearly flavored with a hazelnut syrup that was sickeningly sweet. A bit of a disappointment to end a festive occasion. Call me a prickly fuss budget, but at over $100 per person, I want perfect everything. We were pre-disposed to have a great time, and we did, but it was carried more by our celebratory mood than by the experience, at least for me.The 10% cash discount was an unexpected plus.

They're famous for their crumb cake- and it may be the world's best.
We also love the Rainbow Cookies- they are also one of the best we've ever had!
Numerous other cookies & pastries we have had are excellent!
On the negative side we don't love the spice cake or the small hand-held fruit pies- but maybe we just don't care for these items in general.

If Cuban food is your thing then this is the place. All of the typical dishes are here and they're cooked to perfection. The Ropa Vieja is top on the list followed by the churrasco. Great home made empanadas with several typical of fillings. It's a bring your own bottle and the sangria is definitely worth an order. Prepare for a nice night out but make a reservation especially on the weekends because this place fills up quickly.

Had dinner reservations here for an early Valentine's Day dinner celebration. Our waiter Franklin was impeccable with his service and making sure we had everything we needed during our dinner (we hope our tip reflected our happiness with him!). Best lobster bisque we ever had...creamy with large chunks of lobster in it. The Filet Mignon, Tenderloin, Lobster tails and South African Lobster Tail was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Not lost were the sides too...probably the best Au Gratin potatoes I've ever had. Dessert was fantastic too which we weren't able to finish due to being so stuffed from everything we had prior. Can't comment on the wine selection as we didn't order drinks but it looks like they had a nice wine collection.
While this meal was more on the pricey side of what we normally spend when we go out, I knew what the prices were going to be before hand and I thought everything we had was reasonably priced for what we got.

During the summer season and again in the Fall we bought various ice cream flavors here. Even though the ice cream was quite good the "stone-cold" arrogant attitudes displayed toward us soured our appetites. Observing the impatience and anger of the employees when children changed their mind shocked me. If they hate their jobs that much why not hire new employees ? Moreover, the portions on an Ice Cream Sunday are too small given the high prices. Why are the tables unsanitary knowing that families bring children to sit down for cakes and sweets ? With so few tables available one expects cleanliness but even the floor was sticky. There are cleaner places in Bergen County serving fine homemade ice cream where customers are accorded greater respect. We'll return during Summer 2018 to see if there is any improvement.

Probably eat in Amarone once or twice a month. Very consistent service, excellent menu and accommodating hosts (Nick and Nick). Kind of quiet, but nothing wrong with that.

We ate here for Father's Day and enjoyed our server and food. Our complaint was there was no air conditioning and it was hot. We were told it hasn't been working for a few summers. People, including wait staff, were fanning themselves to try cool off. I have asthma and the heat made it harder to breathe. No one in my family enjoyed themselves with sweat running down our faces.

I either order for take out or dine in if its a weekday lunch because its less crowded. There are maybe 30 seats on the side to dine in so very small. My favorite dinner is the penne vodka with shrimp & scallops. You cant go wrong with anything, oh and like most local spots its BYOB.

Had to stop because of the price, location, and the craving for a Sabrett's hotdog...
Plenty of free parking, convenient to Teterboro airport and after three dogs with a Coke, it hit the spot for a quick pit stop during work.
There is something special about a Sabrett's hotdog with your favorite topping and with the snappy skin in the boiling water!!!
We will be back, enjoy!!!
