"There were three of us. I ordered a very dry gin martini to start the meal and it was one of the best I've ever had in a restaurant, which I took as a sign of good things to come. The appetizers (shrimp cocktail, burrata and antipasto) were excellent and the main dishes (rack of lamb, veal saltimbocca and cacciucco) were all outstanding. I had the cacciucco which was a tomato broth with clams, mussels, shrimp, octopus, white fish and lobster. The mussels and clams were large and tender, the shrimp and lobster cooked just right and the white fish was melt in your mouth tender. The service was great. All around a wonderful experience."

"We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night, and it featured a singer (with taped music background) as the entertainment. The food and service were fabulous, but the music was so loud that we could not talk with each other without shouting; very disappointing and uncomfortable. We purposely sat as far away from the entertainer as possible, but we still couldn't talk over the music. The restaurant was close to empty most of the evening so it's not clear why the sound level was jacked up so high."

"I have been here 2-3 times and enjoyed the service and food. The last time I went the place was empty and still received poor service. I had to send my son to get the waiter to get our check to top it off."

"I live within walking distance and find Bel Posto not only convenient, but also serving excellent food. The veal marsala was the best I have ever eaten. The restaurant decor is very attractive and, in addition, the valet parking is a real plus. When friends or family drive to meet me at the restaurant, they appreciate not having to find a parking space."

"What a nice find. Went for a birthday celebration and all parties left happy and full!
Food was very, very tasty. The only negative was that the service was a bit slow, but the servers were polite and accommodating. Going to blame the speed on perhaps a few multiple large parties. Would surely go back.

"We went on a Friday evening and were surprised to see the dining room empty. The bar, however, was lively.
Food was delicious. Atmosphere was elegant. Service was very attentive without being intrusive. We also appreciated the circular driveway with valet parking.
We look forward to coming back for the Sunday brunch and will certainly recommend this restaurant to our friends."

"We had the PEI mussels, lobster scampi, filet mignon, creme brulee and the chocolate lava cake. Everything was excellent, classically prepared so you know what to expect from these tried and true dishes. The service was superb. From the moment we walked in we were treated with respect by a friendly attentive waitstaff. The ambience is classy and romantic, yet you don't have to overdress. The music was not too loud and perfect so we could still have a conversation while we enjoyed the DJ. This is a great place for a special occasion or if you really just appreciate good food. Prices are what you would expect for fine cuisine with beautiful presentation. Convenient valet parking. Would recommend Bel Posto most definitely!"

"Bel Posto (formerly The Restaurant) is a beautifully elegant package containing a gift from Wal-Mart. The visit was for an early dinner on a Saturday. Given that it was a hot day and crowds were down probably at the shore (a NJ term for beach) the place was sparsely populated. When we arrived staff were casualy sitting at a table discussing whatever. This was not a great first impression. Service was good, wine list very limited, menu looked very appetizing. Had the carpaccio appetizer which was a little stringy and tough (you should not need a knife for carpaccio). Main course was a lobster scampi with linguini. The lobster tails were in the shell with a breading on top. Linguini was cooked perfectly but the lobster tails were overcooked and could have done without the breading. Presentation was not up to the decor. As the crowd filtered in it appeared that dress codes were optional a took away from the elegant interior. Except for part of one table the crowd was older..without being unkind we are early 60's and the crowd was late 70-80's, at best. Bar crowd was closer to our age. Wedding music type house band added to the assisted living feel of the place. Not a return for us...unless we needed a nap."

"I used the certificate from restaurant.com and they tried to included the tips in the bill w"that was more than 25%. Although they took it off after I disputed , I think it is not a honest practice because it should not happen in the first place ! The waiter said it was the system automatically added on when we used the certificate . Other than that the food was good but pricy , it is good for special event but not place you want to go have a family dinner without breaking your bank . -414"
