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.

Mendoker's Quality Bakery

Reviewed By windsgroup - South River, New Jersey

Ever since the business was sold, the business has not flourished. They make the same quality products but lack in the amount of product made there.

As an example, and this not the first time it's happened, we called the bakery early this past Saturday to place an order. We were told they didn't have the number of jelly and Boston cream donuts on hand and they weren't making any more. The only had a few breads as well. Tell me how this bakery can stay open if they cannot make enough product to sell?

We like what they make but we can never complete our order. Guess what? We cannot continue with this business practice any more. If you cannot complete our order as requested, we are going to another bakery soon. There is great bakery in Mataram, NJ. It's out of our way but there product and services are very remarkable.

Faros Greek Cuisine

Reviewed By Sue C - Monroe, New Jersey

Well, if you’re in the mood for Greek, this might fulfill the need. I myself was disappointed. Portions small and the description on the menu doesn’t match what you get served. For example, I ordered a pork slouvaki... NOPE! Couple of pieces of pork served on a platter, no pita bread... sad!
My partner ordered a chicken panini NOPE! It was a chicken hero...sad!
Would I go there in an absolute emergency- maybe. It’s sad because where they are located has such a limited variety they could really do well. All I can say is give it a try... maybe they have upped their game since I was there.

Italian Touch Restaurant & Pizza

Reviewed By SummerLove11 - Baltimore, Maryland

WOW!!! We went to NY for two days and desperately wanted "real" Italian. We didn't find it there, so I searched for somewhere we could stop at on our way home to Maryland. It was GREAT! I had the tricolor pasta which had eggplant, "pink" sauce, and roasted red peppers. It was AMAZING!! Seriously one of the BEST pasta dishes I have ever had. The fresh mozzarella on the top was SO GOOD. I couldn't believe how good it was. My husband had the ziti and a side of the meatballs. He loved them both (he won't stop raving about the meatballs!). The servings were huge and there was so much sauce (which is so important!). We also had the garlic knots. On top of that, everyone was so friendly and the place was beautiful inside. I wish we had Italian like this in Maryland! Two thumbs up! Seriously - stop here!! (And as a vegetarian, I had a lot of variety to choose from.) :)

Finally an alternative to the usual casual restaurants in the area. I ordered the jerk wings and fries and also a beef patty.

The chicken was perfectly spiced with a nice little spicy aftertaste. The chicken is as good as my favorite Jamaican friend makes and hers is spectacular

I love being able to order online also. Will be back soon!

Old Fashioned Goodness! We serve our own Homemade Flavors and Giffords Ice Cream from Maine.

Reviewed By marilynbl - Princeton, New Jersey

We discovered this little ice cream place on Mother's Day this past May. We'd just had breakfast & once we noticed this ice cream place we couldn't resist as they had very interesting flavors. We now go there just for the ice cream, sometimes we'll have breakfast around the corner & then go straight for the ice cream thereafter, delicious !

We usually go with friends since we all really like Romeos. Service is about average for your local Italian restaurant but the food and price are really good. My favorites are chicken parmesan and amazingly spaghetti and meatballs. Salads are good and bread it very good.

Ciro's Ristorante Italiano

Reviewed By windsgroup - South River, New Jersey

There are a few exquisite Italian restaurants in the majors cities across the US that are great. But finding one in central NJ is truly special. The old world atmosphere and limited seating made it feel very home-like and personal. The waitress was delightful and extremely professional in her attention to our meal. The soothing Christmas music was perfect so that everyone could carry a conversation and be heard.

Our family decided to have Christmas Eve dinner here. The menu was surprisingly delightful. We ordered two appetizers- calamari and fried mozzarella. Wow! These were tasty and fresh. Even the mini baguettes and pizza slices with sauce were signs of a great meal.

While we ordered different items from the menu, I ordered veal osobucco, my wife ordered the braised beef. My father-in-law ordered the Bolognese and everyone else ordered shrimp scampi. Each dish was tastier than the other. My veal was so tender, flavorful and delicious. Every bit was a delight. Tasting my wife's dish showed how the chefs could construct a robust beef flavor that complemented the meat. The boldness and rich taste of the Bolognese was not of this world.

After thoroughly enjoying this meal, we decided to find out more about the desserts. Ordering a mango sorbet with raspberry center and covered in white chocolate was over the top. There home-made cheesecake was even better. How is this possible?

If you dine here just know parking is limited for handicapped people. We were lucky when a space opened up near the main entrance. This place must be experienced by all. Bon appetito.

My son and I was at the car show in Helmeta, Nj yesterday. After walking around we were about to head to the car and go home. Then we noticed the smell of pizza coming from the restaurant across the street. We couldn't resist had to go check it out. As we walked in and noticed that it was a quaint little italian restaurant with indoor and out door seating. We ordered 1 slice of cheese pizza for each of us. Absolutely delicious pizza that we had to order more. The staff was very were pleasant and we're glad to be helpful. Clean restrooms which also was nice touch. Stop on by if in the area.
