Excellent Girls Dinner

Had a wonderful evening with a group of friends. You must try the mussels ( red) and the octopus. They were amazing. The sauce in the mussels was so good! It was more of a chunky sauce. Very good. The octopus was amazing. The roasted artichoke on the dish was excellent. No salads are... read more

We have been going to La Fontana ever since it opened and its "still the one". Absolutely love the veal dishes especially the Franchese!! Another favorite is the arugula salad and the antipasto but most of all we love the atmosphere, the staff and especially the chef. La Fontana Coast is a must go to place when in Sea Isle!!!

I came here with my boyfriend and his parents for a birthday dinner. His parents both got the Veal Fontana, and I got the seafood risotto, which we liked. However, my boyfriend got the Veal Parm and it was horrible. The "sauce" seemed like jarred tomato paste. He ate just a few bites. When the waitress came, I let her... More

We arrived a little early for our 8:30 reservation. Celebrating my birthday, we were eager to dine out and enjoy an evening together. We waited out by the curb, after about 20mins the chef came out to offer us a plate of calamari to share while we waited and they set our table. A kind gesture and very nice. We... More

From the staffs friendly greeting and wonderful service to the perfectly prepared food, this was a truly excellent dining experience. It was a quiet night and... More

We were here in April for the third time since December. One of the few places open over the winter. The second time we were there they remembered us like family! Awesome BYOB and bring a couple, no one rushes you, every course is creative and leaves you wanting more. Excellent service, excellent decor in a wonderfully attired setting at... More

My brother had his rehearsal dinner here on 5/15. Everything was excellent from the food to the service. the waiters went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was outstanding. We had cousins with us who were over from italy for the wedding and they even raved about it.

As a local we have learned not to visit any restaurant during events such as The Polar Bear Plunge or holidays. The service will be slower, the noise level will increase and the crowds will simply make the experience less than perfect. We enjoyed dinner last night (3/27) with friends of ours. Every table was filled including a large party... More
