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.

Stopped in and we both ordered from their "Hooked on Tuesday" special which included choice of : 1.Salad, 2.Entree, 3.Dessert.
We were promptly shown to our table, served a loaf of bread with oil to dip in.
My wife had the Classic Caesar Salad, Atlantic Salmon* 8 oz.which includes 2 sides & Jen’s Jamaican Coconut Pie. ($18.90)
I had the Bonefish House Salad, Pecan Parmesan Crusted Rainbow Trout also includes 2 sides & the Macadamia Nut Brownie. ($21.90)
Everything that we ordered was excellent, the server attentive and the atmosphere was very nice. (the only complaint I had was the music was turned up a bit too high)
We had a great dining experience here, I would certainly return. Thanks.

Been here forever. Get the hot dog ""ripped"- that is, well done so it splits on a toasted bun. Fries are outstanding. A vintage roadside stand that beats them all, anywhere. Very old with no updates. Kitchy. Outside bathroom and parking. Serves a good burger also. No gimmics.

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.

Love this restaurant for so many reasons. First the quality of food is excellent but the quantity of food is overwhelming. Most of the time when I go I have to take some home for leftovers.
The atmosphere is inviting and I love the culture of it all. The waiters are professional and helpful.
The sangria which you can get in pitchers might alone be the reason to go.
It’s just a few miles down the road from MetLife Stadium on a road that I never even knew existed until a few years ago because of this restaurant.
If you go into a giant or Jets game and you’re not tailgating and need a bite, give this place a chance ...you will not regret it.

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.

One of three New Jersey locations of the Biggies clam bar chain.
If you like fish (whether fried, baked or raw) this is a good place to go. Of course there are non-fish items also.The atmosphere is pub-like, and nicer on the inside than outside. It is a bit noisy, especially near the bar. We went during the week, yet it was still crowded, that is a good sign. The wine list was far from extensive, but fairly priced. The raw oysters were delicious, nicely presented and also fairly priced. The fried clams were the best I ever had. They were clam bellies served on the shell. Recommended.

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.
