We found Fiddleheads on a trip to New York City when we stayed in the area and the hotel clerk suggested we try it. We have been back many, many times and each visit has been a delight. If we leave home in Gaithersburg, MD after work, we want to break up the trip. Our routine on those trips has... More

If you are in this area of NJ your choices are limited but this is definitely a good choice. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is good. Entrees are good overall. We had the fish dishes which were prepared well.

I'm glad to discover such a nice restaurant in my own neighborhood. The food is very fresh, well prepared and well presented. The wait staff are all pleasant and the chef really likes to know how you are enjoying your dinner. He came out of the kitchen and greeted everyone while we were having dinner.

We enjoyed our stay at this restaurant. The limited number of dishes on the menu was a good sign. Restaurants with star quality also offer less choice, because the meals are composed with fresh ingredients. It might take some time before the meals reaches your table, but the waiting is wortwhile. One remark, I had the steak Diane (medium), but... More

Had an Angus burger which was delicious as well as the bruschetta. It is a BYOB but the food was delicious and accommodated the 7 others that were with me.

As usual, didn't disappoint. The service was a bit slow to visit our table initially, but once we ordered the service was excellent. I started with a special mango lemonade which I enjoyed very much and wasn't too sweet. The salads and burgers are always great as are the well prepared daily specials. BYO is great for dinner as well.

Fiddleheads offers fine dining in the heart of Jamesburg, NJ - an eclectic menu of well-prepared dishes. We've eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Interesting artwork, reasonable prices and BYOB, too - make sure to make a reservation - it's a small place!

After tasting a "fiddleheads" salad up in New England...was excited to hear about Fiddleheads Restaurant offering a tribute to the green a few weekends back. The fried fiddleheads was delicious. This intimate BYOB was wonderful. We enjoyed every course of our dinner. Loved that the Chef came out to each table at the end of the night. Will definitely return.

The rating is based on a combination of poor greeting and food missing the mark. Let's start with the greeting. The host while sitting us said to take the bottle of water off the table and place it on the floor. Than asked if we brought wine being a byob. So you can bring wine but not water. Not a... More
