For my bday dinner, my fiancée took me here and requested one of the private dining alcoves. He had told them when making the reservation that it was my birthday and they decorated our table when we arrived. Our waiter was wonderful - very knowledgeable and friendly. I ordered the couples martini, the Brie appetizer and the duck for dinner.... More

My wife and I spent the weekend on the Jersey Shore to celebrate our 17th anniversary, and discovered the remarkable Scarborough Fair in Sea Girt. This is a hideaway of a romantic gem, which works hard to create the right ambiance and succeeds. The lay-out and decor of the restaurant could almost be Alpine chalet, and if this is the... More

In a recent discussion of restaurants visitors to the shore must try Scarborough Fair was at the top of my list. Built from and old house the design and decor is a little quirky and full of character, suitable for both casual and formal dining. There is a small bar, but is does not feature prominently and is really located... More

From the moment we walked in we had a good feeling about this restaurant. The inside is nicely decorated and the alcoves on the sides are for 2 or 4 and will give you a very private feeling. The bar area is small but we had a cocktail at the bar and had good service. Did not have a reservation... More

My husband took us here for Valentines Day (the day after actually) because I had read how amazing and romantic it was, and was really looking forward to going. I hate to say, I was rather disappointed. We weren't seated on the staircase, but that wasn't a big deal. We had a nice table in a corner (though right next... More

Let me start by saying we have been coming here for over 20 years. The service and food are always excellent. I live about an hour north of the restaurant so we only come here on special occasions and New Year's Eve is one of them. Knowing this is a very busy evening we made our reservations for 6:15. We...

This restaurant has white table cloths, good service and is quiet. Unlike most restaurants in the area, the presentation is well done and it is a nice place for a special occasion. The "very good" rating is my NJ rating. Looking at how other places in the vicinity are vastly over-rated, the overall experience is very good and better than... More

The stretch of Jersey Shore from Asbury Park south to Bay Head has so many fine BYO restaurants that it's easy to overlook some great ones that aren't. Although we've been in Manasquan more than 25 years, our last visit to Scarborough Fair was more than 10 years ago. Their presence on the Restaurant Week roster led us to a... More

I had lunch here for the first time today. When we entered the front door, there was no one to seat us. We stood there for several minutes, and I had to go to the bar to get someone to seat us. We had a great table, and our waitress came promptly. We placed our order and it took about... More
