Every time we come here we experience the best service and food! This used to be the sister restaurant to Lou Cas in Edison and Fresco's in East Brunswick (both favorites of mine and my husband). This place is a lot like them in terms of menu and service. Excellent place for a special occasion or just to enjoy a... More

This was some of the worst Italian food I have ever had. The clams casino seemed as though the just had the breadcrumbs straight out of the box put on the clams and heated in the oven. Absolutely no flavor. Same with my main course, seafood cipollini...no flavor. Would NOT recommend Christies.

My review is very belated, as my visit occurred more like 3-4yrs ago. My son and a friend had an early dinner there. We started with a fried calamari bowl which we shared as an appetizer. It was exceptionally good and frankly the only thing I remember. No bar then, BYOB. Although I would definitely go back, for whatever reason,... More

Food is always great! Seafood is best bet - the crab cakes are awesome! The potato croquet is very good. It is a BYOB which saves money. On quiet evenings the chef comes out and speaks with patrons.

Shrimp cocktail was just ok. Lobster bisque soup had no taste. Veal chop special was fatty and very overpriced at 34.00. This use to be a favorite place of ours but we wont be back.

My wife and I went to Christies last night. We have been there before. The food has always been good. We ordered the Sea Food Special as our appetizer which was very good. For my main course I ordered the Linguini and Clam Sauce. Being Italian and not just because my last name ends in a vowel, my parents are... More

This newly expanded Italian restaurant is tucked into a strip mall, so I had never noticed it in all my time driving past it. They really need a proper sign. That being said, we had a lovely evening here. The service was very good, the specials different & many, were tough to choose from, but all 4 of us loved... More

We were 3 couples enjoying a Valentine's Day dinner together. I was so appreciative to Christy's for accommodating our party since we had just made the reservation the day before. I was reluctant to eat out on this holiday because of the crowds, but we were all pleasantly surprised at how great it was. Food was delicious, and plentiful. Our... More

The atmosphere was very nice but the food, which had been highly recommended, was just mediocre. The $60 4-course dinner had nice variety but was not worth the money. I had a stuffed lobster tail and Caesar salad that I didn't like at all. The shrimp cocktail was boring. The filet mignon looked like the best bet.
