We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was VERY quiet. We were warned ahead of time that the service was slow but that the food was good so we went prepared. Just a quick FYI: this is NOT a BYOB. They have a full bar. We had the calamari for the appetizer (very good) and the two chicken... More

Appetizers were very good, including the bruschetta and mushrooms with sausage plates. Wine selection also better than average. Dinners were under seasoned in my opinion - a bit too bland. We had a pasta plate, salmon special, and stuffed shrimp. I think our mistake was ordering seafood in the middle of New Jersey. The waiter was pleasant; the surroundings attractive,... More

We only came because of a food voucher from restaurants.com, and we spent a good deal more than necessary to use the voucher. The three of us ordered scallops in a spicy diablo sauce, walnut-crusted chicken with sweet potatoes, and a chicken dish with pasta and sausage. For an appetizer we had the acclaimed fried calamari, which did not disappoint.... More

We went as a couple with an 8 year old for a late lunch because of a restaurant.com certificate. We ordered the eggplant as an appetizer which was very good. I had the cavatelli and broccoli which was good but a lot of garlic and something added that made the sauce thick? Our boy had ravioli which he liked. My... More

The staff is nice and the food is very good but the service is very bad. Dinner for two people took over an hour and a half. There were no servers that were accountable for the tables so it was pure luck that we actually got served any food at all. During our dinner we saw 3 separate tables walk... More

We went to the Venetian Grill because we had a restaurant.com coupon and it was located between our friends and us. We went on the coldest night so far this winter - and when we got there it seemed like it was almost as cold inside the restaurant as it was outside! Plus, we were the only patrons in this... More

Went to this place on a dinner date with someone I just met, but the service was quick and the prices were ok, but our focus was more on eachother.
