Nice dinner out

This is the second time we've gone with a large party. Food is delicious, service is good. My only two complaints are the use of paper table cloths distracts from the intimate, casual elegance. The other suggestion I have is the way the tables are distributed. Our table of six was seated right in... read more

Tried it recently during restaurant week in Somer's Point. Well recommended. BYOB. Prompt cheerful service. Had the pork steak. Very good. Lots of places within 200 yards to have a cocktail beforehand. Will return soon.

Superb service, charming atmosphere, creative and wonderful presentations of seafood and carnovare fare, almost perfect in every way. Our table tried a number of entrees; duckling, salmon, chicken w/ pasta, and pork tenderloin. We had soups and salads and deserts, coffee and cappuccino. Nothing was lacking, there were no problems, we would certainly go there again. It is the best... More

Pricey but worth it. Wonderful Sunday brunch. An elegant tea room and dinners worth the price. It is small so reservations are a must.

Intimate setting, many daily fish specials and good menu choices. Bring your own bottle, they do not serve alcohol or have mixers on hand. Good service. Recommend reservations.

We hadn't dined here in about 4 months and were very disappointed. Every other time we have eaten here the food was very good. Not this time! Maybe they changed kitchen staff? The crab cakes were barely cooked and not even lukewarm. The rice was tasteless and no macadamia nuts to be found. The asparagus was charred and tasted like... More

The noise level was like an assault on my ears and it was actually hard to understand the waiter. Crowded Sunday night in August--service was slow and he was not very attentive to our needs. The crab cakes at $28 were tasteless and the rice bland. Way too much salad dressing on the included salad and it was standard balsamic... More

First time dining here. Well worth it. Salmon was moist, well prepared, delicious. The coconut shrimp were huge and perfectly prepared. Very pleaded with the entire dining experience. If you order an app, entree, salad (a small salad comes with) or soup and dessert and coffee it gets very pricey and you get too much good. We just had entrees... More

Have now dined at Latz's probably 10 times in last year and have never been disappointed. Food, service, atmosphere & finally a place you can actually talk without a lot of noise too. What makes this restaurant "our favorite place" is the owner is always there assuring the attention to detail. You won't be disappointed.

We kinda stumbled upon this sweet little restaurant. It's beautifully done inside with lots of windows and sunlight. I kept saying I've gotta bring my mom here, she will love it, not only for its ambiance, but also the great food options, everything from crepes, to wrap sandwishes to burgers for lunch or brunch. Some day we'll make it back... More
