Amazing food! Amazing service! Amazing atmosphere! Can’t wait to go back!
New outdoor dining was very cute - and food is fabulous as always.

Food was excellent as always! Food took a bit longer than usual but didn’t mind as enjoyed the environment!
Always delicious, always consistent! One of my favorite spots
Restaurant was great but outside dining was a little noisy and alot of beach traffic.
First reservation for dining out since COVID! Absolutely delicious!!! As always!!
It was good to be back. Love the Pork Chop. Loved the services.
Outstanding as always
Great food and Carlos was amazing!!! Never a disappointment!
Amazing food and staff
Absolutely delicious food in a charming outdoor atmosphere. If the fig appetizer is available do NOT miss it!! I am never disappointed in Anjelica’s - consistently scrumptious food!
Great I’m sure if they were open. Made reservations 3 months ago. So 😞
Great food, great staff (Carlos was fantastic), and looking forward to going back when we are allowed to again.
Birthday for wife
Burrata the best
Enjoy this top five restaurant
Aljelica's has been our favorite restaurant for years. The Food and Service is always exceptional, the only problem is as they are getting more and more popular it is difficult to get a reservation.
Fun and delicious
Always great food and service!
Food was absolutely amazing, my fiancée had the halibut over lobster risotto and I had the mafaldine al limone. My meal was delicious, the cream sauce with the lemon and breadcrumbs was divine. The halibut had a nice crispy top and cut like butter. I highly recommend the homemade pasta, it was delicious. BYOB so bring your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy!
Food is always amazing !!! Love this place
It’s very loud and the tables are on top of each other. I ordered seafood and it was terrible. Overdone and lame portions. Not worth the price and very overrated.
Great food and service
This place I'd a s good as it gets
Absolutely amazing. Rob was our server and he was excellent. Everything we ate was perfect. We can’t wait to go back.
Oscar is always a pleasure and accommodated our bday party with an early arrival as well as accommodating 2 guests who had to leave early. Food was delicious. Our waiter Tom was wonderful. Always enjoy both lunch and dinner there.
Our group of six had been waiting over a month for our reservation, it was worth the wait!!!
The service was impeccable and the food was fabulous. We did have 2 small issue and the manager stepped right in to fix them. Because of our issues the manager had comped our desserts, which was lovely. We will definitely be back in the summer and are looking forward to eating outside.
This restaurant is amazing. We could only get reservations for 5:00 for 6 of us, but I'm so glad we went early. There were a couple empty tables, as they were gearing up for 6:00 reservations. The waiter was amazing! And the food just incredible. We're all good cooks, and this place is our favorite for sure. I told my husband it's the only place I want to go out to dinner to from now on. So, I made reservations for lunch in 2 weeks! Try the veal parmigiana. It's truly amazing. I'm not a big fan of meat, but this was outstanding. So was the octopus appetizer, the special cauliflower appetizer, and I heard the special lamb chops were great and it was a big serving. Enjoy !
I genuinely consider Angelicas to be the best restaurant in New Jersey.
The quality of every dish we had at the restaurant, and the consistency and attention to detail that the restaurant focuses upon is the reason why it is the ultimate venue for a special dinner like a birthday dinner.
Go to this restaurant many times and always a pleasure they never disappoint.
Carlos is the most awesome waiter.
We love him.
Cannot believe how busy for a Thursday night.
Food is wonderful especially cacio e pepe
I was fortunate to dine there twice this week. Food was fresh and so delicious. One of the evenings was to celebrate my birthday and they did a great job making me feel special. Because everything is fresh they did a great job accommodating my food allergies.
Never disappointed. Always a wonderful experience. Food is amazing!
Wait staff is always attentive and efficient!
We shared an scallop appetizer which was absolutely outstanding. I had a ribbon paster with a Meyer Lemon sauce very different but, wonderful. My wife had pasta arrabbiata which was (a bit too al dente) still very good as well. Our server could not have been more attentive and helpful.
Absolute great experience! Saturday night they were super busy (as expected) we had to wait a little, but It did not phase us. The service made up for it and the food was phenomenal. The entire team showed true hospitality and had a genuine way about them. Cannot wait to go back.
Pastably the best pasta I’ve had in NJ!
This place is absolutely amazing. Best restaurant in New Jersey. Everything we ordered was sensational. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a new restaurant.
great waiter and food!
Always a beautiful lunch experience even when the dining room is at a vibrant full capacity. While the restaurant is often booked, it is never too loud, and has good energy and ambiance. The wait staff doesn't miss a thing, with warm and professional service, but the food is the star. Try the orange cake for dessert! Amazing place.
