My dinner was good (I got the skirt steak) but those that got the short rib said that, specifically last night, was very salty. The service when we first got there especially with the first round of drinks was on the slower side. We waited a long time. Waiter was very nice and explained since we were upstairs, the bar was downstairs. At the end we understand that there is a mandate of 10pm so we were rushed since we were done eating. I wish we had another half hour to digest and relax. It was a birthday dinner. This is our go to place for our group so of course we are coming back for sure but it was a bit odd this time around. Guessing it was because of covid. Everything everywhere is upside down.

The food and service was excellent. The upstairs room can be very loud as it is large and high. They seem to be doing work up there so maybe they will add some drapery to cut down on the noise. Outside of that we had a fantastic dinner with excellent service.

We were sat at a table in the back room which was very noisy. We asked to be moved and the staff was very accommodating. Had a fabulous dinner, server was very attentive and didn’t rush us. Great experience and will definitely go back.

I have had the pleasure of dining at many establishments in the Monmouth Co. area and I have to say 618 always exceeds my expectations.
I know during these trying times it’s hard to adjust to the COVID regulations for the dining world, but 618 gives you the comfort factor regardless what is going on in the world today.
Their staff always seem very friendly and welcoming from the time you walk in the door from the moment you leave. We had the pleasure of having Nicole as our server and she suggested great options for drinks and dinner..”Berry White“ is an all time favorite drink with the wife. The Shrimp & Grits dinner is an entree that is on my list. Just want to say thank you to the 618 staff for going above and beyond to make dining feel normal again.

We went on New Years Eve and it was very well socially distanced and I felt very safe , constant wiping down of the table was a nice touch! Our waitress seemed a bit all over the place, it took almost 20 to receive our drinks, in fact our appetizers arrived first. The drinks were delicious! We had crab cakes and short rib ravioli and the crab cakes were very good. The ravioli were just ok, the sauce made them delicious! We had the little gem salad and I wish I had had that for an entree, it was very good dressing! I had the skirt steak, it was cooked perfectly and had a nice taste, the guacamole was brown in places. The fries were good but they must have been the end of the batch as there wasn’t a single one that was large, they were tiny pieces. My fiancé received the Tilefish special, it was so flavorless. It took us almost an hour and half to receive our entrees and at that point we were just not wanting dessert. I do have to say the most off putting part was the waitress asking for us to fill out a survey and to make sure we wrote a review and she harped on the fact that her boss texts people at 630 am about the results...it was just ingenious! Loved the decor though, but that’s not enough to bring me back!

We love 618. The noise level was quiet only due to the limited tables allowed.
Pre-covid, the vibrancy was amazing.
James, our waiter was great. Our meal was delicious.
618 is always our go to spot.
