Excellent food with a view of the Ocean. Good service in spite of help shortages.
Always a pleasure to eat here. Staff is so friendly and food is excellent
We had requested a window table overlooking ocean for our wedding anniversary almost a week in advance and were told it wasn't a problem. The table was not available. We got a table with another table in between our view. Other than that... food and service were great. We would go back again.
Great service and delicious food. Enzo provided a great dining experience.
Always a fantastic meal and great service. Best view in Sea Isle city
Our best meal at the shore this summer - outstanding!
Dinner was superb! Our server Lucy was so attentive and just amazing considering how busy she was!! Will definitely be returning!
.Spring salad with peppers and mozzarella was delicious. Chicken parm and cod special also tasty. Great night out.
Great food, service very good, view is fantastic. Overall great dinner.
Extremely disappointed in host/service. We had a 6:30 reservation, arrived on time and were seated after 6:30. Our reservation was for 4 people, one person took ill, but we still had 3 persons. We were seated at a f table set for 6, which was odd. Our server was very friendly and attentive. After we placed our order, the appetizer was promptly served. However, the entrees took a very long time to come out. As we were all anxious/hungry at that point, we wasted no time eating our dinner. As we were celebrating a birthday and had a cake waiting back at the house, we opted to skip dessert. The check was immediately paid upon delivery to our table. Approximately 1 minute after receiving the closed our check from our server, the hostess arrived and announced that we had to immediately leave the table as they had another (large) party waiting for the table. The announcement from the host was loud, insulting and unnecessary. We were shocked. We hadn’t even finished our one bottle of wine. We shudder to think what would have happened if we decided to have dessert?! It was not our request nor desire to sit at a table larger than our reservation request. Staff was unapologetic for the rush job or the lengthy delay in receiving our entrees. Having been to La Finestra before with good results, it was very disappointing to close out our otherwise good evening, and will certainly make us think twice about ever returning to La Finestra, as it should others. Put your feedbag on, pay your check and expect to get the boot…got your money, now get out. Beware!
Food and service was excellent. Will definitely go again.
Great meal had the veal special, excellent waiter. Wish the elevator worked has a friend that has trouble with stairs.
Highly recommend this place!!!
I have been going to the Jersey shore for over 50 years spending most of my time in Avalon, NJ. This is the best meal that I have had in the past 20 years. Service was excellent. We split the burrata, melon, prosciutto starter which was amazing and the mains where exceptional. We will be back.
Food and service were great but this was our 2nd visit and both times, we had to wait, and wait, and wait for the entrees! Over an hour between salads and the main course. Clearly, the kitchen is not running smoothly. We had the same server both times and she knew what we went through the first visit. It was a shame because we really loved the food. If you’re not in a hurry and willing to wait to eat, bring extra BYOB and plan for a long evening.
Everything was perfect. Food, atmosphere, service…. Employees were all courteous. The food…. “Fa get about it!” 👌🏻Very impressed. Definitely be back.
I went with my daughter and husband and all our meals were wonderful. We will definitely be back again and again
Excellent outside dining atmosphere
Our food quality and service was very, very good.
It was a very nice place with an ocean view. Even though the food was delicious it may have been a bit expensive.
I like to try different places to dine with my wife.
Great food! Nora was a great server and the whole experience was truly outstanding!
We had an outstanding meal at La Finestra over the weekend. The food, service and ambiance were exceptional. So glad we tried this byob. We will definitely return.
Fabulous food and service
The restaurant was very busy. The service was very prompt and the food was good. It was quite loud and the tables are a little too close together. Outside dining is nice and it is covered.
Food is ALWAYS great. Nice views. Great night.
Food and service was exceptional
Great view. Perfect Service. Delicious food. Wonderful evening.
Everything was perfect. Service and food were excellent!
Great dinner as usual
This restaurant never disappoints!! Always fresh ingredients and consistently delicious.
This restaurant has an outstanding view of the Atlantic Ocean and Sea Isle City beach. The food was excellent as well as the service. I strongly recommend La Finestra to anyone seeking a great dining experience.
Friends recommended this place while on vacation and it definitely did not disappoint!
We were greeted by a very pleasant and helpful staff. There were plenty of
diners, but we didn't feel crowded. The food was very well prepared and all
enjoyed their meals. This restaurant is a BYOB, so you bring your own beer or wine.
It's one of the few places in Sea Isle where you can have an ocean view while dining. It felt as though every member of the staff wished us well and thanked us for coming as we exited.
Great food and service.
Delicious! Much better then Modo Mio. More interesting menu
Food was great, as always. Our server, Norah, was delightful!!
Delicious food. Great atmosphere. Our servers were great.
This was our 4th visit. Everything is outstanding at this restaurant. Will continue to recommend and bring our guests here.
It is a beautiful restaurant with fantastic ocean views. It is noisy but tolerable. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable; however, they brought our appetizers and our salads all at once making us feel a bit rushed. Despite the rush it was delicious food.
Always a great meal and service.
Wonderful dining experience!
