Great views, service and food

Came here with a group. Service was good, friendly, but a little slow. There was a lot of us, so that's probably the reason. Food was good too. I didn't hear anyone complain and they all said heir meals were good. Great view is the ocean too as this restaurant is on the boardwalk. Would like to... read more

Ate here last night. We asked to be seated downstairs and got a great table by the window. One of our shared appetizers was the shrimp. It was so good! Two people got the Branzino which they thought was excellent. One person got the filet(it was a little more done than ordered but still good). One person got the salmon-... More

I have been here several times and will continue going back. Food is delicious and drinks are also great. Pricey, but worth it once in a blue moon.

We had our company Christmas party here just the other night. It was a cocktail party from 5 - 7 and a few of us arrived right at 5:00. The wait staff was just getting the tables set up and we had to wait a bit, so they get a point off for that, but once things got going the... More

This is a well known restaurant on the boardwalk in Asbury park. Bruce Spreenstein sometimes drops in -it is whispered. The food is good, and the views are even better. The best time to go is during warm weather of course, and combine a little walk on the boardwalk, and some shopping or anticking.

We are frequent visitors to Stella marina. We have never been disappointed in our meals. My favorite dish is the Valdostana Pork chop dish. It is excellent and always a very healthy portion. The restaurant is located on the boardwalk so it's a great location. Nice ocean view dining. The upstairs can get very noisy but it does have a... More

Very pricey...not enough waitstaff...reserved a table, shorted 2 seats...waited 30 minutes for first drink...very limited menu... gave my salad to someone else...good food but DEF not worth the pricetag. Heard there was new mgt. Pick another place...this one will disappoint!

I wouldn't quite call this a kid-friendly restaurant - there's no changing table in the bathroom, and they didn't bring crayons, but the staff were accommodating for our friends' reunion dinner, with an excellent drinks menu AND a highchair available. The food was excellent, and right on the boardwalk.

We were here for a rehearsal dinner and we were very pleased. The food was awesome. The atmosphere was very nice. The staff were friendly but seemed confused at times as to what was going on. Maybe a little more training for this kind of situation would help. But over all we loved it.

We have eaten here at least 6 times and never had a bad meal. We have had the soups, salads, pizza and main entree's. Everything is always delicious! It sits on the boards in Asbury Park so the views are beautiful. If you are lucky enough to go in the summer and eat upstairs, outside...its a treat. Moonrise and bonfire... More
