“What a pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

It's Jersey Shore Restaurant Week...and we always like to try a couple of new places...last night we tried Fratello's in Sea Girt...the online menu for Restaurant Week was quite extensive (unlike many of the others) so we decided to try it...we all would have liked to try 4 or 5 different things on th menu!! Our group tried the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer...the fennel in the sausage really gave them a nice flavor...we also had the artichokes francaisse...which were also very good...for a main course, we tried the sea bass with stawberries and mandarin oranges over wilted spinach...excellent...our friends tried the grouper and red snapper and both got rave reviews also...for dessert we had the home made tiaramisu...excellent...The service was excellent, friendly without being overbearing...spoke to the owner on the way and said..."We'll definitely be back!" BTW - regular menu looked real good also...saw a sole francaisse go by...have to try that next time!

“Try the ribs!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We liked everything -- especially the cabernet and the ribs!
Sit at the tables surrounding the bar -- lots of noise and lots of fun!

“Great food if you can get a table...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

My husband and I frequent this restaurant because the food is good...was given a gift certificate because a friend knew we loved this place...came in and was told it was a 45 to 1 hour wait...no problem, will wait for good food. An hour later, and several drinks at the bar...we noticed couples being seated that came in before us. When I questioned a worker, who was clearly in charge, he stated that they came in before us. 15 minutes later, when we were finally seated, we were told, by the hostess, that we were correct in saying that the other couple had come in after us, but had complained more about the wait, thus getting a table before us, since we had ONLY checked on our table status once...very hungry, but even more mad, my husband and I left the restaurant and stopped at a local pizza place for food. I ripped up the gift card, and will NEVER go back to this restaurant again. I am further validated by another reviewer who stated that the same thing happened to them. They blamed it on the fact that they weren't locals...WE ARE LOCALS and it happened to us...I think I am most mad that we were lied to...
