The food is one of the best in NJ, but the service is slow, pompous and poor at times. The staff is poorly trained.

You become part of the Family when dinning at Bruschetta. The staff tends to all your needs and the food is pre-paired to your specific requests. Steak Diane is my wifes' favorite, I on the other hand explore something new on the menu each visit. A key to their success is you get the feeling they want you to come... More

Very attentive service! We were hardly seated before the Waiters came to pour our water and take our drink orders. Portions were large...including the appetizers served "family style". Good food, served well and we were left to enjoy a leisurely meal with no "hovering" over our shoulders to hurry us out. This was a business dinner meeting so we could... More

We had our third Thanksgiving dinner here at Bruschetta. They have seating every 2 hours and give you a whole turkey with all the trimmings if you have a party of 4 or more. Very attentive with my youngest son's food allergies. Carving station had choices of beef, lamb, and ham. All were perfectly cooked, tasty and juicy. Various pies,... More

We ate there our second time Saturday night and they had a very good prix-fix special which is unusual for most restaurants on weekends. Although it was very reasonable, the portions, selection and quality of the food was excellent, we were even able to order the delicious fresh whole fish. They have a singer in the bar area who is...

Was there a few days ago with a group of colleagues. We were glad we got in without a prior booking (which was a plus, since our choice was spontaneous); got served with water and wine quickly. The food we had to wait for an hour. The starters were pretty plain; portion of sole small. Steaks were good, pasta' s... More

Had another spectacular dinner at Bruschetta last night and decided it was time to write a public review. I'll qualify the title by saying I haven't eaten at every restaurant in NJ but I'm sure its in the hundreds from north to south and this place consistently rates tops on my list. Superb atmosphere; quiet except for the wonderful musician/singer... More

Bruschetta is not only one of the better restaurants in the area, but has not suffered because of the economy. The help, all of them, seem to be genuinely gracious and well seasoned in this business. As a mature diner, I enjoy eating at the bar and always find people very friendly and willing to share a conversation. The bar... More

My mother has gone to Bruschetta on many occasions and has always enjoyed the food there. We went to an appointment together and decided afterwards to go there for dinner. She called to ask if there were tables available, they said yes, and she said we were about 5 minutes away. 5 minutes later we walked in and were "greeted"... More
