Great cocktails and happy hour bar menu. Enjoyed it all. Some of the best meatballs I've ever eaten. Dinner menu looks great. Can't wait to go back.

Brando’s did a great job accommodating us for our Holiday Party. Management and supporting staff were pleasant and attentive in meeting our needs. I'd also like to specifically compliment our lead wait person for the excellent service she provided. Everyone was very happy with the food and had an overall nice time. Our complements!

Brando's on Main Street in Asbury Park is a lovely restaurant in a great location. The decor is quite nice with dark wood interior and a very nice bar. I had a wonderful dinner with a friend who made the reservation. I was five minutes late but as soon as I walked in we were seated. The maitre'd came by... More

I recommend Brando's highly for a fine dining experience. My husband and three kids (ranging in age from 16-23) were all delighted with our food and especially our service. Our waitress Theresa was adorable and very attentive. She made us feel right at home and was extremely knowledgeable in terms of the wine list and the dinner specials. We are... More

Once again the superb Sunday sauce of Steve and his Brando s crew was fantastic.It brings back memories of what grandma pain staking made every Sunday. Fresh homemade pasts and all the accompanying meats serve in a perfect sauce. Thanks again Steve can't wait to go back!

if only someone came around and filled our water glasses!!!! I went to this restaurant because of my research on trip advisor. The nine of us all had delicious meals! The food was excellent and they aren't afraid to give you decent sized portions. Our only complaint, and it is disappointing, is the service. How long do you need to... More

My husband and I have eaten at many of the restaurants in Asbury Park. I think this is the best Italian restaurant in the area. While a bit pricey it is worth it and on par with many restaurants in Manhattan. We came with group of couples on Saturday night for dinner. We were unable to get a reservation on... More

Made reservations and drove a good half hour to celebrate a special birthday for my spouse. A Happy Birthday would have been a nice thing to have started off with from the hostess but it had not been acknowledged at all nor by anyone for that matter! They sat us in the bar area which I thought was odd being... More
