I have honestly say this restaurant is very overrated and might be one of my most disappointing meals of my life. My party of 3 was looking forward to a great meal after reading their reviews and looking at the picture of their artichoke for the past 2 years. We had reservations for 7pm and we promptly seated on time... More

If you crave authentic, delicious Italian food, Cafe 2825 is the right choice in Atlantic City. The restaurant is cozy and has limited seating. Reservations are a must and we made ours several days in advance via Open Table. Whenever I initially visit a recommended Italian restaurant, I usually order the Chicken Parm; this is my barometer. 2825's Chicken Parm... More

This cafe has a great reputation for many years and it is no wonder. Although not a lot of seating which makes it a bit cozy, comparable full bar and awesome wine selection. The food is bar none better than most casino restaurants. Each dish is piping hot, prepared to order and incredibly delicious! Table side homemade mozzarella making, deboning... More

I always forget about this incredible restaurant. My brother in-law was visiting and mentioned he wanted to have dinner at Cafe 2825 so I made a reservation. I would recommend making a reservation as we went on a Thursday night and the restaurant was full. Upon entering we were welcomed by the owner and seated right away. The restaurant is... More

I was in Atlantic City at a large company meeting, so our events people split us into groups to get us out of our hotel to a good local restaurant. I like a few of the others had a look at Trip Advisor to read reviews and check for the signature dish so I ordered the Sunday Gravy. I was... More

The menu and food here are terrific. The biggest challenge is to decide between so many great and creative selections. It is amoung the very best Italian food that I have tasted in NJ, NY or Italy. The service is not on a par with the food. It is OK but more suited to a diner than a fine restaurant.... More

Stop reading and just go!!! Grilled stuffed octopus. Woah. Spending 30$ on a salad sounds crazy ? no way when it comes to something that tastes this amazing. It was 15$ per person for table side, 11$ for non table side, but it was the best Caesar i have ever tasted. Sunday gravy for dinner, everything on the plate was... More
