Long wait for table, squeezed in and slow service

My wife and I along with six friends made reservations for 8 PM on a Saturday thinking we would not have to wait long upon arrival. I was wrong We were finally seated at 8:35 at a table that would normally fit 6 people. We were squeezed in so tight we were touching leg and shoulder to the person... read more

Celebrated my birthday at La Pastaria Restaurant in Red Bank, New Jersey. This restaurant was recommended by the other couple we were with. The prices were reasonable. The BYOB feature is very nice. Our waitress was excellent!! We ordered various appetizers, entrees and pasta dishes. The size of the portions were very large. My husband and I ordered the "Sunday... More

I had lunch yesterday and had the best eggplant parmesan one could ask for. The "gravy" or sauce as some call it is fantastic. I've been to all the Italian restaurants in Red Bank and this one seems to top them all. You can bring your own bottle of wine and not worry about the "triple" mark up. It appears... More

Truly one of the worst dining experiences have ever had. Waitress was so incredibly RUDE- actually making faces because I was not ready to order fast enough then arguing with me over what I had ordered, while ignoring the table the rest of the evening. Just doesn't get what being in a service oriented business is about! I, nor any... More

The food is very different. The stuffed escarole is amazingly good. On Friday and Sat evening they have a singer. It's fun when we all chime in to sing. The owner of the restaurant is very pleasant and sweet.

We returned with family last week to LaPastaria. I reviewed this restaurant before and I am happy to say that the service and food continues to be outstanding! Since we brought family with us, (party of 12) I was concerned with the quality. Everyone said that the portions were large and very tasty! We were never looking for our waitress.... More

We went here for the first time. We were a party of 4. We had a 6:45pm reservation on a Saturday. Before coming here we stopped at the Wine Loft in Long Branch for appetizers and drinks.. The perfect outing is to stop at the Wine Loft and see Kirby who is the best bartender we have ever came upon....... More

Not the best and not the worst. Our server was more interested in drinking with the guests (that's right - he had seven shots with another table - I COUNTED) then focusing his efforts on service. Food was good. I like the ability to order wine from the store and having it delivered to the restaurant. Very favorable; however I... More

I really like this restaurant , but it seems to have hit and miss types of days ? Sometimes it's really good and others not so much . When it's full it is really loud and seems hectic . But it is local and the service people are very good . The food is usually good as well ,and it... More

Really wanted to "like" this place, but can't recommend it. A few good dishes, but too many disappointments. Antipasto dumplings were superb - with a savory sauce, but downhill from there. Bread on the table was squarish chunks of lifeless "Italian" and a red-tinted bread with no discernible flavor. Pesto sauce made with rancid olive oil - seriously. Carbonara gummy... More
