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.

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!!

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.

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.

My favorite bagel is a whole wheat with fresh lox and cream cheese and this is the place to find it. A small family owned shop in a strip mall with quick & friendly service. You can even call your order in ahead of time and have it waiting for you when you walk in. They also have assorted muffins and 4 boards full of all kinds if great breakfast or lunch sandwiches on a bagel or other type of bread. Great place for a walk in or you can eat at their tables and relax with a cup of coffee!

Steakhouse 85

Steakhouse 85 is a 21st century rendition of the classic American Steakhouse. The menu at Steakhouse 85 is comprised of fresh and inspiring modern day interpretations of classic American cuisine, served alongside the traditional steakhouse classics we all know and love. The back bone of our menu is without a doubt our beef. Our mouth watering dry aged steaks are rubbed with a simple yet luscious combination of sea salt, black pepper and fresh herbs. They are seared on a 1200 degree cast iron grill and then broiled to your liking. Paired with a large classically designed bar, complete with savvy cocktails and a Wine Spectator award winning wine list, this steakhouse is sure to please.

Great dinner! The service was wonderful and the steak was terrific! My son had the tomahawk for his birthday which was huge and delicious! It is expensive!
