Service by Savannah made the evening extremely nice.food is good though portions on smaller side. Crab cake appetizers were wonderful. Shirt rib in Cabernet sauce tasty though a little sweet. Would like to see a larger variety of main dishes. A nice place to dine.

We were very pleasantly surprised that the food, service and ambience were first rate. There are not many restaurants in the area with that trifecta.....and a liquor license and decent bar
We will be back

618 is awesome! Not only is the food amazing but you can’t beat the service. Our waiter, Dennis had great recommendations and knowledge of the menu. It’s a great place to celebrate a special occasion or just if you’re looking for a nice dinner out. Highly recommend!

Service was excellent! Our water glass was never half empty. The pork belly appetizer was just OK. The pop Adele Bolognese was excellent. The short ribs were a little tough but the Brussel sprouts were great!

We had a get together with two other couples and went to 618 on a recommendation from my neighbor. Based on his experiences I knew everything would be top notch and after a very enjoyable dinner I can say the opinion was shared by everyone. We started with appetizers of crab cakes and grandma’s meatballs that were the best ever. Our main courses ranged from filet mignon to braised short ribs to butternut squash ravioli. All were excellent and the presentation equally so. The wine list is superb and desserts were yummy. As good as everything was, the service was exceptional. Our servers, Laura and Savannah, were charming, professional and on point the entire evening. Charles (Chuck) is the general manager and he stopped by the table to say hello and ask our opinions. One final touch that really impressed me was when we were leaving Laura was at the Hostess station with the hostess to wish us a good night and thank us for dining with them. We will be visiting 618 on a regular basis.

We had a family dinner celebrating two birthdays and were not disappointed by the consistently excellent service we received at 618. The menu is fresh and always delivers and the waitstaff are incredibly accommodating. I've been here several times and always leave satisfied.

Thanks for making this day for my family special!

All around great experience. Seating Time, Service, Food Quality and Atmosphere were all spot on, one of the owners stopped at our table several times to make sure everything was to our liking. Never would have found it without Restaurant Week and OpenTable. We'll be back

We had another wonderful meal at 618. The halibut special was delicious. My wife loves their lobster ravioli. They do a great job with cocktails and dessert as well. We have probably eaten at 618 thirty times and never been disappointed.

We had a wonderful experience. Dined for a date night as a part of restaurant week. Our server Rick was very charismatic and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was fantastic. For appetizers we had the meatballs and butternut squash ravioli, both were great. For entrees we had the chicken Milanese and shrimp and grits, both were absolutely delicious. Finally for dessert the only thing you need to know is to get the toffee cake. Honestly the best dessert I ever had, I would drive hours to come back to 618 just to eat that toffee cake again. Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend.

This restaurant is our favorite celebration place. Elegant and romantic, well built with tables nicely spaced, noise buffers, fire place and plenty of room. Premier service!! Fantastic food. Delicious drinks. plenty of free parking. They do not rush you. Enjoy a leisurely night out.

(And special surprises for birthdays if you let them know when you make reservation!!)

We decided to try 618 for Jersey Shore restaurant week and we were extremely happy to find this gem! Food was excellent! I had the Butternut Squash Ravioli appetizer and my husband had the meatballs. Both were delicious! Salmon and skirt steak for main course phenomenal and the desserts were great too! Out waitress was very attentive (maybe just a tad too attentive if I’m honest. I felt she was at the table almost as much as we were!). The only thing that bothered us both was when the waitress came over to wipe down the table in between the appetizer and main course. They used a disenfectant on the table while we were sitting there enjoying our drinks and bread. I do NOT want to smell that or have a wet table underneath my elbows at this point. I know they are trying to be clean etc but it’s unnecessary and unappetizing. We will definitely go back again!

Kristen, Thank you so much for such a nice review. We all here at 618 do appreciate it. I also want to thank you for the comment about the table wipes we were using that evening. We have switched brands as you were right that they had an unpleasant odor. Thank you again and hope to see you soon. Charles Armstrong GM 618

We had booked an original 7:30pm booking thru open table. Our schedule freed up so we call to see if we could get an earlier seating. Person who answered the phone accommodated our request for a 7pm seating without issue and was happy to assist.

We were seated near the fireplace and was greeted by Dennis our sever that was phenomenal throughout the evening. The topper was dessert that we shared with a new finding of an after dinner cordial we were introduced to.

From the ambiance to the staff and chef’s food..... outstanding!

Overall consistantly good. Had to wait about twenty minutes to be seated with reservation. Busy evening. Food is always good. Try the chicken milanese as it is very good. Also the meatball appetizer is excellent. Not willing to substitute vegetable with entree which is disappointing, but will still continue to dine here. Local favorite.
