Okay so this is one of my husband's favorite restaurants in AC. We made reservations noting that it was his birthday. The place was very crowded - it was a Thursday night, the restaurant is always very loud so I would not say if you are looking for a romantic meal this is simply not the place to go. The... More

There's a general feeling that you have to eat in a casino hotel to enjoy a great meal. Not true. In fact, my recent visit to Cafe 2825 (The number is its address on Atlantic Ave.) not too far from Tropicana casino turns out to be better by far then any casino meal I've ever had. If you like really... More

Some restaurants have a few of the necessary qualities that make for an excellent restaurant. However Cafe 2825 has them all: excellent service, cleanliness, high quality food, atmosphere, and value. From the time we sat down, we experienced all of those and more. But I have to say the most impressive quality is by far the food. It's just A... More

Over the last 15 years I have been visiting this restaurant and never had a bad meal. Your are welcomed by the couple Ginny and Joe, the owners. Some of the staff have been there for a long time. Helpful and patient. The ingredients are brought in from suppliers out of town and the best quality. The kitchen produces the... More

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
