“Waiters chatting and laughing so loud, made it hard to enjoy the good food.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I have always enjoyed their great food but was very dissapointed when I couldn't even hear the conversation of my own company due to the noise from the kitchen and till point. Even after talking to the manager, waitresses were chatting and laughing so loud that it made it really difficult to enjoy the evening.

“Anigma: Pathetic Service; Excellent Food”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

20 minutes no service!!! Then complained to manager. Another 13 minutes to drinks arriving. 2 tables around us had similar complaints. Another was battling to get their bill. Coffee came in dirty and chipped cup: we were given an empty clean one to pour over for ourselves! (No replacement!!) Food came quickly thereafter: minus a pizza which then had to be made and waited for! Food was superb, amongst the best pizza we've had. Restaurant was not busy, so that doesn't explain the poor service! Never even had a waitron introduce themselves to us. Would I go again? Yes. The food was excellent and perhaps they just had an off day with service?

“Good pizza and service”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

the hotel recommended this restaurant and was a great choice. The outside area was closed but the inside restaurant is warm and inviting. The open kitchen was fun to watch. I was quickly greeted and seated. My waiter was quite attentive as I was dining alone. The food and drink were quickly served and both were excellent. I rarely eat pizza so this was a treat - the crust was perfect. The waiter suggested a nice wine and also made my dessert decision as I was torn between two options. Both the wine and dessert were wonderful.
The restaurant seemed to have more locals than tourists - some families and other groups of friends. The decorations were nice and the windows look out to the casino entrance and boardwalk so I was able to see some street performers entertaining the crowds - a great people watching perch.
It was reasonable priced and a good meal -
