We have been living in Livingston, NJ for many years and just now decided to visit Ritz to check what all this hype is about and have visited it twice already with friends. Service is exceptional: extremely fast and attentive both times. Matzo soup is perfect. Salad fresh and seems to be done on premises, not prepackaged. Even coffee is... More

I went to this diner once because of the excellent recommendations of my acquaintances. It looked like they treat well only returning customers who they know for years, for others, including my family, customer service was below any acceptable level. The food quality? It's poor The cleanliness? It's dirty. I wouldn't go there again and I wouldn't recommend this diner... More

Ok so maybe it is good to be crowded. But, this place can get packed. We have driven away a few times. However, their Chef Salad is the best. It is like Yogi Berra said........It's too crowded, no one goes there anymore.

Went for lunch with a friend. As usual, saw several other friends there (as usual). Good service and good food (though I did not really like the shrimp salad I had today).

We eat at the Ritz a few times a week. Dinner usually includes delicious soup, salad and an entrée with two sides. Good home cooking and usually the portions are large enough to share or bring some home for a second dinner. No reason to cook!! Staff is friendly and we feel like family.

Food is okay, service a little slow and prices a little high. We live about 3 miles from the Ritz so it is convenient and will go back.

Not sure why so many ppl like this place. I've been there multiple times now and it's the same - awful service with less than mediocre food. If your just getting eggs over easy or a bagel fine but even with simple things like a bagel, I've definitely had better.

Breakfast is available throughout the day. Enormous omlette and delicious chocolate pancakes. Try the disco fries. If you're looking for a full meal, try the complete dinners, they are worth the price.

Let me start by saying I LOVED the Ritz for 2 decades now. The omelets, the chicken salad, the pasta with cottage cheese and veggies, the corned beef- I could go on. Since the fire some years ago and the rebuilding, it just hasn't been the same. The proof seems to be that during breakfast, it used to be packed-... More
