This was a fairly expensive restaurant as are most on the Asbury Park boardwalk. And I am sure it would have been an adequate dinner if there had not been a problem with one of the waitresses. She came up to our table and asked to take the cheese which was in an open bowl. I said she could, but... More

They have wonderful unique pizzas, the Caesar salad is amazing, as are the fish dishes and pasta dishes. The service is always wonderful and the view of the beach and atmosphere make this one terrific dining experience!

Let's see. Staff with an attitude. Overpriced average food. The pizza was better than cardboard. The Caesar salad was an insult to romaine lettuce that included 4 Croutons and 2 slices of Parmesan cheese - that is for a full priced meal.. The view of the ocean is hard to beat so I guess they can be complacent with the... More

You know a restaurant experience is great when you can’t wait the next morning to go write a glowing review! That is what happened for us at Stella Marina last night! Every single aspect of the night was perfect. From the greeting by the hostesses, through the cocktails with the bartender, through the waitress, through the dinner, through the entire... More

We have been here many times and have always enjoyed their food here. Their meals are always tasty and delicious here, but we have noticed a trend over the last few visits. The food is still the same, but the portions have shrunk and the prices have gone up. Basically it’s the same up and down the boardwalk, its location,... More

Busy Saturday and waitress barely had time for us -- overworked, very slow getting to table, taking order, though others were better taken care of. When we finally ordered, salads came in 10 minutes .... tri colore -- not sure why it was called that because it was green, with only a leaf of radicchio and endive, should have ordered... More

I recently went here for the first time. The outdoor area was very crowded so we decided to sit inside. It was very loud and noisy and we were sat very close to the kitchen area which also added to the noise in the dining area. Our server was friendly and knew the menu very well. The two pasta dishes,... More

We ate here this evening, but I've been here before. I had the Halibut special, DW had the filet mignon. The food was very good, but I have to say, expensive. The meals were $32 and $35. I had 1 drink, a martini at $12. I have this drink often when dining out and the most I payed was $9.... More
