Romola's Seafood & Grille
Excellent raw bar items at good pricing. Not many in area. Shrimp and Scallops very tasty and good size portions. Linguine and clams very tasty. BYOB makes it even better.
Was very surprised to arrive for dinner, to find the restaurant had no liquor license???
Clam chowder was very good!
A very attentive staff. The offerings were very nice. Great seafood.
Outstanding as always. Great service and great food. Very consistent.
The food is always great!
Another of our favorites. Sonny is very gracious. The food was excellent! Love that it’s a byob.
Service was great but food quality was poor
The food was outstanding and the groupon discount made the experience even better
This was our first dining experience at Romola’s and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious, the portions were ample, and our server was attentive. This was a perfect place for our anniversary celebration. We definitely plan to return.
This place is a hidden jewel! The food was fantastic and service was immaculate. We wanted to thank everyone for a terrific service. We will certainly return.
Food and service was outstanding. Highly recommend
I made a reservation for our 35th wedding anniversary and was told this was an excellent choice for myself and my wife. There seemed to be 2 servers on a Monday night which was was expected, bit they needed a manager or somebody watching over the floor because the patrons were being ignored. I ordered a veal chop (med rare) and came out Well Done and the plate was extremely like it was sitting on the broiler plate waiting to be picked up. The waitress response to my over cooked meat was Sorry the sous chef was cooking this evening, well that is no excuse for such a mediocre entree. If you want a steak or a veal chop during the week don't go to Romola's! Our coffee was served very nice and hot, but we had finished them and waited and waited for our desert. Since the waitress was no where to be found I proceeded to go into the kitchen and saw three people standing around idly so I said "are you Kidding Me" and startled them, waiting for our anniversary desert ! I hope the owner and the general manager of the restaurant reads this.
Strange...the restaurant was empty on a Thursday night when all the surrounding ones were busy. Food was average
The service was excellent and the food was delicious!!
Serve was polite but not attentive !
Price were high for Ala Carte
Calamari was over cooked and tough
Pasta had no flavor
Salmon was plentiful but no flavor of horseradish
Asked for Parmesan cheese and they gave me a sprinkler from the pizza place
Overall average and overpriced
Expected more based on ratings and reviews
As always the food was great. My husband's ravioli was amazing. We sat outside for the first time and it was very nice
The menu had changed drastically from the last time we were there. The shrimp and scallops were overcooked and the Wild Mushroom Risotto was way overdone. We had a great meal there previously and this was quite a disappointment.
Food and service are very good. They recently set up an outdoor dining space that is very well done! Romola's is located in downtown Cranford where there's lots of stores and traffic -- yet they were able to create an intimate oasis for sidewalk dining. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent raw bar which we enjoy, always fresh and presented well. Linguine with clams in a red sauce I requested was outstanding. Other entree shrimp and scallops excellent as always. Another entree guest enjoyed was the Salmon. Again, nice quality and freshness to these dishes. BYOB adds to the enjoyment. You must give this place a try!
We happened to choose a night where the restaurant wasn't busy, so the service was very prompt, as expected. There were 5 of us in the party and 4 of us ordered friom the price fixed menu. We all were very pleased with our choices. My wife ordered 2 appetiizers and found the tuna tartare to.be excellent. However, the 2nd choice, a crabcake, had an unusual taste, which she found not to her liking. Bringing this to the attention of the server, it was removed from the final bill. The group had a lot of catching up to do and there was no rush to have us depart, though it was definitely close to closing. Would definitely go back.
We have been to Romola's many times and decided to take advantage of their prix fixe dinner special for Cranford Restaurant week. Portions were generous and the food was excellent. We had the crab cappellini and the tuna. Both were excellent choices. They also have plenty of tables outside for alfresco dining in season.
All of our meals were truly excellent. My husband loves your grilled calamari.My girlfriend and I equally thought the horses radish salmon was excellent.
Well done as always!
From the friendly staff to the skillfully prepared menu, It's always a pleasure to dine at Ramola's!
Recently brought a party of 8 to dine at Romola's. They did a nice job of handling our party even with another bigger party going on. Staff was very attentive. Nice selection of entrees and everyone enjoyed the night and their dinners. Nice atmosphere and dining al fresco in good weather.
A local place in the community with great food and nicely priced for lunch to catch up with friends.
The seafood tower was a bit skimpy, however, very fresh and delicious. The food was exceptional and so was the service. We ate outdoors, on a spectacular summer evening and it was wonderful. We were not rushed, and were able to enjoy our dinner with calm and pleasure. I highly recommend it.
The staff was nice. Not super attentive and the food was not good. The tuna tartare was more magi than anything else. The bass was cooked oerfexr
Pleasantly surprised how good everything was! Food, service, management, all really good! Best tuna I’ve had in a few years!! It will a a “go to” restaurant for us from now on!!
Service was spotty at best, I don't like all questions answered with "no problem". I had as scallops and shrimp with risotto. The risotto was like oatmeal that did not have enough water, think it was served with an ice cream scooper. I think this entrée was $32. Very disappointed My wife had the cold corn chowder which was very good, and a fish of some sort, she did not finish it, and not because she was full.
What a great hidden treasure. Excellent food, large portions and very attentive service.
The food was fantastic. The service was spotty and the ambience could have been better. It was a delicious dinner - rare for us at this price point.
Beautiful restaurant! Excellent service. Delicious meal. We split the mussels and tuna tartare apps which were amazing. My entree, horseradish encrusted salmon with risotto was mouth watering. Love the byob as that truly brings down the price of the meal.
Our meals were very delicious
They had a engagement party tonight so it was a different experience but the food was still excellent. Very nice place.
Food was great. Tuna was exceptional. Halibut special was 🔥
Food was excellent
Birthday dinner but have also ordered everyday dinner from them
The service was excellent, food was good, atmosphere was very much in need of a refresher. If we weren’t meeting friends, I would have left after walking in. Thanks goodness the food was good, but based on the atmosphere, I wouldn’t rush back.
We love going to Romola's and our last visit was a great experience. We had an appetizer and 2 entrees that were specials that night. They specialize in seafood and these dishes were excellent with good size portions. They also have entertainment on the second Friday of the month and that added to the wonderful ambience.
