Wow! Terrific new find in Freehold for us first-timers. Location is a bit odd, set back off of Rt. 33, which is why we never stopped by before. Reserved lunch today and were seated in excellent bar area. Our server, Bianca, was just outstanding. Great recommendations, explained dishes and flavor profiles very well. Offered drink samples. Food was outstanding as well. Started with shared butternut squash ravioli in a well executed brown butter sauce. Followed by buttermilk brine fried chicken sandwich (with hand-cut fries!) and pappardelle bolognese. Bolognese is one of my go-to dishes at new places. This one was among my top two. Pork, veal and pancetta mix was incredibly flavorful. Each entree was thoroughly enjoyed, and will be ordered again. Surprise of the day was a Brûlée rice pudding for dessert!! Wow. Who would have thought? My wife and I both commented that the servers really knew their stuff and really seemed excited to be associated with this restaurant. What else do you need to know? Definitely planning on, and looking forward to, a return visit. Soon. What a great find!
Amazing food and great service. Valentine’s Day here was great!
We very much enjoyed our Valentine's Day meal! The highlight for me was the sauces. The truffle pasta pouches lacked the truffle flavor but made up for it with the kale-sunflower pesto. The halibut could have been slightly less cooked but the vanilla-rum-butter and sweet potato-chipotle sauces were outstanding. The highlight of the black cherry- ricotta cheesecake was by far the crust and the mango sauce. Overall, a very enjoyable meal at a good value!
It’s our go to place. Love the food, employees and owner.
Another visit , another great night. Fixed price menu for Valentine’s Day was awesome although very hard to pick from all of the great choices. This is my 8th visit and they never disappoint
Can’t wait till next Friday. Date night and a visit to 618
I am very picky and I am usually able to identify a least one problem but at 618 I can never find anything wrong
Resturant is spotless, clean bathrooms and great service. Prices are above average but worth every penny and then some.
A great place to go for celebrations! My wife and I will definitely be back.
Consistently excellent food and service. One of our favorite places!
Our 5th visit since June 8,2019. Service, food, atmosphere are wonderful. See you soon
My husband and I had a very nice experience at 618. Our server Nicole was very attentive and helpful with any questions we asked. The food was delicious and drinks superb. We will definitely be back and will bring friends.
In all the years that we’ve been going we have never had a bad meal. Everything is delicious. Especially, the handcrafted cocktails. My favorite is the apricot old fashions. I can never get enough of this place. It is our go to place all the time and everyone we recommend to go there loves it just as much as we do.
Always enjoy coming here but weekends are tough. It's pretty crowded and loud. That said, had a nice drink at the bar before dinner. Got a tiny table for 2 in the corner. Food was tasty but presentation was just OK. Not our best experience here but we will come back.
Went there for a big birthday celebration. Ambience was great, food was outstanding and excellent service. Highly recommend!
Visited 618 with another couple. We always enjoy the stuffed mushrooms. Two of us had the lobster raviolis topped with shrimp which were so delicious. My husband had the pappardelle bolognese which he really enjoyed. Our other diner had the roasted chicken which was good.
Had a very enjoyable dinner and date night at 618! From the appetizers, main course and desert, we cannot rave any more about this restaurant! The Tuesday night house wine special ($10 bottles) put the night over the top! Our server was Samantha, 5 Star service throughout the night! We'll definitely be back!
Overall a good experience. Would recommend.
Party upstairs was badly shaking the ceiling above our heads
Our sever and food was excellent! We enjoy eating here so much we booked a party!
Great food, service was a little slow to start, but great after we got going. Everything was prepared very well and everyone enjoyed their meals. Drink specials were also nicely prepared and tasty. We will be back soon.
Good Food, the waitress was pleasant, also nice to have made reservations and be seated immediately. The restaurant is crowded and a bit noisy to have a casual conversation.
This was my first time at 618 and it did not disappoint. Our waiter Rick was outstanding and made excellent recommendations.
For example he suggested the Andouille encrusted cod and it was probably one of the best fish dishes I have eaten in a while. He really knew the menu. The drinks were great too; in particular The apricot old fashion and the 618 negroni. Excellent overall experience and I will be back with friends
Love this restaurant! Amazing food and service!
Great experience. Our waiter Matthew was friendly and courteous
Wide selection of expertly prepared dishes, meatballs, ravioli, shrimp& grits, salmon and cod were all great.
Mathew is the best waiter I have experienced in Monmouth County in years
Great time, great service and of course great food. Met the owner, the chef and feel that they know what we want to have in our great dining experience. You can get a variety of foods on the daily menu vs. a place that only has a choice of either a 3/5 course dinner. All very professional
great time as usual great food ,service and atmosphere. always making sure it is a great evening!
I have been here approximately 4 or 5 times and have had a great experience each time. The food is phenomenal, the service is quick and never disappoints. My most recent visit was at 6:15PM on a Friday night, the beginning of a generally busy time for food establishments, and based on the service, it seemed as if we were the only table there. We were very impressed and talked about it afterwards. The owner appears to be attentive, as he was walking around making sure things were at a high standard. Overall great food, great service and a great restaurant.
Birthday and the waitress made air extremely special. Food and service was excellent. Perfect night
As always the food and service was exceptional. We have never been disappointed there.. our server Samantha that night was on point and had the personality and experience that we appreciate. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening...
Went with a group of girl friends on a Thursday evening. Restaurant was busy but not overly crowded. Everyone was very happy with their meals - short rib ravioli, cod fish, burger and vegan tacos. We all shared the Bibb salad - delicious (Beyond Organic!). Service was a little slower than I would like (especially on drinks) but nothing to complain about - we weren’t in a rush. Will definitely be returning.
Great food, I would have prefer to sit in main dining room, but otherwise, great, food is always good, whatever we order!
Everything was perfect. Every dish from the appetizers to the entrée to dessert was a 10 out of 10. Can’t wait to go back.
Food was delicious...especially the grilled bronzino.
Everything was spot on. From drinks to dessert, delicious!
Absolutely the best in freehold area! Food is amazing and service is outstanding!
Excellent. Really enjoyed our night. Service, food and atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for for girls night out celebration.
Perfect...food great, service great, just a wonderful time!
Once again 618 did not disappoint! Food was absolutely delicious. It was a bit loud this time being close to the stairs with a party upstairs but would not hesitate to come back again.
Surprised to also be getting an email that I was a no-show...we arrived at the host stand 17 mins after the reservation time.....at least 8 of that spent waiting for parking, and even at the time of reservation I indicated that 1 party was handicapped
Girls night out, James our server was amazing!!!!
Always great dinner at 618. The Black ink pasta with rock shrimp and bronzino entrees were both outstanding!!
