Several locals recommended Cafe 1825 over the past year, but we were only able to time our visit to Atlantic City with an available reservation a few weeks ago. We were not disappointed. Although a bit pricey, Cafe 1825 hits on all the bases: great food, cocktails, service and atmosphere. We had the feeling of dining in a cozy, mid-town... More

We visited Cafe 2825 last night and I woke up this morning thinking about the food again!!! We had reservations on. Saturday night. The owner personally greeted us, sat us, and told us about the nights specials. 4 of us went together and the tables and seating are small and close together but the ambiance of the place made up...

Put simply, the experience our party of 4 had here was exactly what a dining out experience should be. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed by a bustling but warm atmosphere and a kind greeting by one of the owners. The service was spot on throughout the night. Our glasses were always full and the courses were... More

Good italian food however, the service was very slow. When we got up to go to the bathroom our table was cleared and reset. We were not finished with our bottle of wine and never received a check. We felt very rushed at that point.

We had dinner at Cafe 2825 because of it's high rating in TripAdvisor. The evening began on a high note in that there was one open table for only a party of two that allowed us to be seated almost immediately. Service was prompt and the server accommodating. However, if your a foodie, that's not enough to justify a superior... More

Went here for dinner 2 times in August and the second time we actually decided to go down to AC for the night because of our meal at Cafe 2825 and it didn't disappoint again. The only complaint I would have are that the tables are a little tight to each other but don't let that deter you. Had the... More
