I visited this restaurant on a Saturday night with my cousin while on a girls trip in Atlantic City. I must say the only reason for me grading them 4 stars is because it is difficult/frustrating to make a reservation. Luckily I was able to secure a reservation 2 weeks prior to my trip. The restaurant is very intimate and... More

We had a great meal here last weekend! We walked in, no reservations (party of 2) and we were seated within 25 minutes. They offer fresh motz & ricotta which they make table side, along with pasta dishes prepared in a cheese wheel, also table side. We had the fried calamari as an appetizer and chicken parm, fra diavlo and... More

Cafe 2825 was gracious enough to accommodate a party of 8 on a Friday night, but make your reservations way ahead of time. Everything was excellent! The table side cheese appetizer order is a must. All of our dishes from the chicken parmigiana to the sea bass were delicious. Great waiter and bar service. The owner "Joe" stopped by our... More

Been going to this place for years. Headed to AC next week, so of course I planned on going back to my favorite restaurant. They were 'offline' on OpenTable all week long, so I decided to just give them a call today. Was greeted with a nasty attitude on the phone, and basically a 'sorry cant help ya, click!'. Truly...

Great restaurant, intimate, nicely done. Food outstanding, service very good. Parking is a challenge. Unfortunately they are suffering from their own success. Impossible to get a reservation. IF they answer the phone, they'll tell you they are fully booked.

Mozzarella made from scratch tableside was the best ever. Stuffed chop was phenomenal !! Cheesecake melts in your mouth. Generous pour on the alcohol. Good service.

My boyfriend and I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. We didn't have a reservation so we tried to just walk in at 4:30 hoping there would be tables available. While there weren't any tables, the owner told us that we could sit at the bar and still have the full menu. This worked out fine.... More

Probably eat Italian food out 9 out of 10 times. We have many good Italian restaurants in our area as it has a sizable Italian population and obviously Italian is the most popular food going today. This is our fourth or fifth visit. Haven't really understood the rave reviews yet. Good not great. Expensive too! With a wine and salad... More

My wife and I had an excellent dinner at this very nice restaurant. The menu is extensive, the food is delicious, and the service is very attentive. And the ever-present owners Joe and Vinnie are extremely cordial and helpful. A not-to-be-missed dining experience whenever you are in Atlantic City...and we won't!!!!!
