We had dinner here last night for the first time with another couple. The lobster appetizer was fabulous, as were the steamers and beets/goat cheese app. Scallops were amazing, lamb chops, salmon, and grouper special were perfect. Service was excellent. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant, and we can't wait to go back and bring more friends!

The food here is dependably good--I had the bronzino, and my husband had the filet on potato rounds and the seafood bisque. The filet was cooked perfectly, and the bronzino was flaky and flavorful For the first time, I was disappointed with the bisque--not as smooth and creamy as it's been in the past. For dessert, we had the ginger... More

We went there and there were six of us for dinner. We got a nice corner table and the owner and staff were very friendly and provided good service throughout the evening. The food is very good as are the portion sizes. It is on the pricey end but the portions and food quality make up for it. I will... More

We have dined here many times over the past decade, and have reviewed it several times. These folks are incapable of serving an average meal. Last night was no exception. My wife had seafood bisque and halibut. I had pan roasted duck breast after a goat cheese/roasted beet carpaccio. Both were excellent in flavor and presentation, nicely spiced. Our desserts... More

This is our second trip to Cafe Loren and we would go again. It's more pricey and dressy than other Avalon restaurants but we always spend our anniversary in Avalon and it's a nice place to go for that special celebration. Though I say it's dressy,what I mean is dressier than other resort restaurants though my husband did wear jeans... More

I dined at Café Loren at least once a season and always enjoyed the meals but for some reason I never wrote a review. Dined there last night with a family gathering and was so impressed I just had to write. Both my wife and I ordered the scallop appetizer, a favorite from the past and to die for. My... More

One of the better restaurants in Avalon. Very appealing dining room that looks as if it was just redone. A BYOB but with the menu prices on the high side, a beautiful dining room & very nice dinnerware—how about some decent wine glasses?? Menu has some interesting dishes and our meals were outstanding. I had the veal and my wife... More

Everything from Appetizers ( The Grilled Lobster Tail is to die for), dinner - our group had the Rack of Lamb and Veal Loren, was wonderful! No room for dessert but did take a piece of... More

What a fantastic experience. This place is a bit dressier and a bit pricier than the average Avalon restaurant but it was delicious. The staff was very friendly and professional and the food was outstanding.

Cafe Loren has been a favorite of ours for many many years. We dined there twice this summer and we are happy to report that The Cafe is still right up there with all of our favorites. From Appetizers to desserts...everything was excellent.
