Nice for a real night out with someone special.

Upscale dining in a nice quiet dining room. Staff very well informed about items on the menu and specials. Pleasant music in the background. Food was very good. A Spring salad could have been my dessert. I had the Gnocchi in a Bolognese sauce. Nice and light, I have had gnocchi in the past... read more

We were pleased with the ambiance of the restaurant, found it a bit dark to see, but decor was nice. Great variety of choices from Beef Wellington to home made pasta. Louisiana Gumbo soup was yummy, bread with oil was not great. We enjoyed our homemade cavatelli dishes and cheesecake. The food was served hot and it was delicious. Service... More

I can honestly say it was the WORST meal I have had in years! ( and believe me...I am not picky) The appetizers... More

Family owned and operated hidden treasure. Be prepared to enjoy every mouthful of this delicious dining experience. There is something for everyone. Leave room for dessert. I give this restaurant 5 stars.

Last night we hosted a dinner for 15 at Brooklyn Bistro. It is one of our favorite restaurants and neither we nor our guests were disappointed. The staff was very welcoming. The private room was very elegant and, as usual, the food was magnificent. Everyone ordered off the menu or from the specials. All the dinners were fresh and made... More

This is a family run business. All meals are made fresh. Dishes are plentiful! And the price is right. It is a BYOB or you can buy wine there. We visited twice in two weeks and loved it both times.

My husband and I recently had dinner there on April 24, for the first time. We were hesitant to dine there at their previous place on Rt. 9, because of its location and small size. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice this one was. The atmosphere was tasteful and more spacious. The waiters were courteous and prompt. I had... More

An interesting NYC type restaurant in Toms River. Good authentic Italian fare at a fair price. Although they do have a wine list for bottles, you can bring your own, for those of us that prefer BYOB. A good lunch crowd, but make reservations for dinner.
