Great service and although the restaurant was crowded we were not rushed. We enjoyed a leisurely and relaxing dinner. They were fully staffed and service was top notch. My seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly, my husbands lamb chops, although small in size, the portion was generous. He thoroughly enjoyed them. This is our 2nd time here and we will definitely be back!

Always a fantastic experience with delicious, fresh, and consistent service! We look forward to coming to our favorite restaurant on the island! Just hope they bring back the Chilean Sea Bass with the gorgonzola risotto and garlic bread! Again, always our favorite!

We’ve loved this place for years but, tonight, 3 of our 4 meals disappointed us. They were bland or done incorrectly, the manager didn’t seem to care too much, and the whole atmosphere was different than before. I’ll give the place another shot but it better come through next time.

Our waitress Amanda was very professional and efficient. She also took great care that the kitchen followed the requests of the diners. The staff works really hard to assure a great dining experience. We love Stefanos, consider it as the best restaurant on LBI now

I’ve dined many times at Stefano’s and it is consistently very good. There has been a noticeable uptick in all prices—Local scallop special $42 fir 3 scallops! The clientele has changed during the past two years—many arrogant and loud people. Jane, the owner, works tirelessly to run a smooth operation—kudos to her. Loud, inconsiderate diner diners believe they are entitled to behave that way.

As always amazing. My husband and I went for dinner and sat outside under the tent. The food was excellent. We had the eggplant appetizer and I had Pistachio crusted Salmon which was also a special. Our server, Dan was personable and responsive.

Came here with such high expectations, left totally disappointed. For an Italian restaurant to season with old bay is unbelievable, the calamari by the time we finished became nauseating. Crab cakes for main entree were bland no taste other than the mash potatoes.
I had broiled fisherman platter , seemed more like boiled than broiled with again old bay seasoning, didn't even eat a quarter of my portion.
Expensive place and dont understand the high rating on reviews usually on the money. Maybe we ordered the totally wrong things..

Food was average and overpriced. 4 scallops and crab Mac and cheese $44. Coconut shrimp was nothing to get excited about. Husband had chicken dish once again short on flavor. Best part of meal was the tomato and mozzarella salad and the lemonchello cake for desert. Note best part of the meal was nothing that Stefano’s cooked

Mitch was our server and did an excellent job. The only gripe we have is the price for the eggplant tower appetizer special. It was hardly worth $16.00 for the amount we received. Other than that... all good.
