Scalini Fedeli opened up a back patio area for outdoor dining with the COVID-19 restrictions. It is nicely decorated. Everything else from the food to the wait staff was exemplary as it always is.
Always good. Are indoors was very buce
Besides the noise from a large party sitting near us, everything was outstanding. Would highly recommend for a special occasion
Food was absolutely fantastic. Service was so so. They poured our first glass of wine and then We had to do the rest. Never asked if we would like more bread Sauces were to die for and a nice piece of bread to soak it up would have been great). Then at the end we had to wait 15 minutes after dessert to get our check and then another 1 0 until I could grab someone to give it to. While not good for the restaurant it was so nice to have the tables so far apart and all the doors open. The usual cacophony of sound was just a minor whisper. I’m sure the service issue was probably a one time deal. Looking forward to our next visit.
One of my favorite go to places for over 20 years. Food and service are always outstanding!
Scalini Fedeli continues to our favorite restaurant in the area. Even the outdoor dinning was done in a pleasant atmosphere. The menu is always special, the quality of preparation outstanding and the wait staff very seasoned. The $59 for a 4 course dinner is a great value.
Have been here a few times before and always loved it but us impressed this time. They are not ready post pandemic. Ran out of things, some of the food was cold, they served us stale bread, and service was slow. Creme brûlée tasted weird and was completely different from when I had it last. Very inconsistent And disappointing. I realize they just opened back up and hope they can get where they used to be.
For some reason the staff was overwhelmed. Our courses arrived late and cold.
Everything about this lunch was a 10! Alex the waiter could not have been better and more attentive, the presentation and the food and desserts were beyond amazing, and the value was incredible. On top of all this the restaurant is beautiful! Top 2 best restaurants in New Jersey I highly recommend it!!!
Excellent meal and service. Will add that when sitting outside should request not to be seated next to HVAC unit which makes it a little difficult to hear fellow diners when it cycles on.
Scalini Fedeli has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years. We realize that pandemic has created many challenges for the restaurant industry. The restaurant set up a nice outdoor dining area in the rear. However, there is no excuse for the head waiter to have his mask fall below his nose every time he started to talk. I even brought this to his attention, and he answered that this always happens. This situation made us uneasy the entire night. We told our hostess, Isabella, before leaving and she was understanding. We just hope that she relays our message to management as this could be a serious health issue. Other than this, the food was excellent as usual.
Food was fantastic as always and the service was attentive but not overdone. Plenty of delicious options on the menu - although I missed my favorite Strawberry Napoleon dessert that was not on the menu the night we attended. Great for special occasions.
Always a great meal here ! The Best of the Best !!
Amazing service amazing food and great atmosphere
We went back for the first time since the indoor dining ban was lifted. Everything was perfect as usual!
Loved the outdoor set-up, and the food was awesome as always
We have been to Scalini many times over the past 20 years. Always celebrate a special occasion there. This was our anniversary dinner. Started where we made a reservation a week ago for 2:30, that was all that was available. Friday at 1pm we receive a call saying the kitchen gets closes at 2:30. The only availability was indoors ,early evening. I got over that even though outdoors was not full when we left.
Food was not the same. Red snapper was bland tasteless. Even dessert was not the way we knew it.
Same menu different food. Disappointed.
I really enjoy this restaurant, except I wind up eating too much. It is outside only right now obviously but they are very respectful. All are wearing masks and proper spacing. Unlike other restaurants they have real sturdy tables, table cloths and indoor chairs! By far, still one of the classiest places to enjoy a long relaxing dinner experience. Great food, great service 5 stars.
Scalini Fedeli is one of several of our "go to" restaurants. This is the first time that we have dined outdoors. Although the menu is more limited, all of our favorites remained, all great reminders of why we return time after time. Highly recommended.
Every dish was excellent and the food was plentiful. I would highly recommend them for a special occasion.
We love the place. Can’t wait to we go back. Food was excellent service was great.
Everything was excellent, service was great as always, we have never had a bad experience here
Love this place
I was a little concerned with a Prix Fixe menu, however there were a wide assortment of choices and more the enough food. The flavors were second to none. Deserts were outstanding. Service was extremely professional.
I wanted the night to be special and it was. The ambiance wasn’t what I hoped, but the food was amazing!
Delightful. We go out to dinner usually twice every week. Casual fare one night and fine dining the second. This was our fine dining date night for the week. The food was magnificent. Every course perfect. There was nothing that could have been better. On our way out I made a reservation to bring the whole family.
Very nice experience. Service and food were excellent.
As expected it can get pricey adding in drinks etc. But overall its a fantastic place. Not a bad comment to make
We were celebrating an anniversary. We were congratulated upon being seated. The server gave us each a glass of champagne and the evening was perfect except for some of the piped-in music. It would have been better without it. Our table was a little too close to the table next to us. They were not loud, but we could hear everything that they said.
Dined here for our anniversary (we do every year) which landed on a Monday. It was very quiet, but was perfect for what we wanted. Service was okay, but the food was outstanding. I had the Bibb salad and veal chop. My husband had the carbonara and veal Milanese. All were delicious. The banana tart and fresh berries were great to end the meal. The wine list is excellent.
Perfect experience all around and all the food was all beyond incredible. We really enjoyed ourselves, thank you Scalini Fedeli for an amazing evening!
What a great experience! The food was outstanding, service even better. Perfect place for special event! We celebrated my birthday and it couldn’t have been better.
Loved the 5 course dinner. Favorites were the veal shank with pasta, veal Milanese, and chocolate philo dessert
Scalini Fedeli is my go to for business dinners in the Chatham area.
We were seated right on time. The food was exquisite and the service was outstanding . We will be back!
Great menu as always.
Best in class service. Outstanding service from Andres, top professional!
A place always to go back and back.
Food was amazing! Charged us a corking fee, was kind of lame, but overall, everything was good. We will be back and celebrate another special occasion.
Too much food and expensive
We wound up taking the entire main course home. I don’t like that
This is our favorite restaurant. When I booked it for Valentines Day there was no mention of a price increase. (To be fair I booked it through Open Table). When I got there and noticed an almost 70% increase in their normal price I assumed there would be something special included. However, unfortunately, there wasn’t. The meal was as delicious as always (although a little heavy on the salt), but there wasn’t anything above and beyond offered for the increased price. In fact, the menu was more limited than normal. They could’ve at least included a glass of wine. I guess we were paying extra for the occasion.
That being said, I will continue to dine here as it’s the best restaurant I know. I’ll just stay away on special occasions.
Went to Scalini Fedeli om Valentine's day after many strong recommendations from friends and family. It was a 5 course pre fixe menu, $100pp.
Beautiful restaurant inside, clearly repurposed from an old house. However we immediately noticed that the lights flickered in the whole restaurant THE ENTIRE TIME. It was inconsistent. Sometimes they would blink 5x in a minute then they'd go a few minutes without blinking at all.
The service was "cold". The gentleman taking our order was very blah. No excitement, nothing. Very flat. He also let like 15 mins go between our 4th course and bringing dessert. Just never came back to us. I had to flag him down and ask how long we migjht have to wait for our dessert because we were kind of restricted in our time together home to our children, and he said, "Oh I didn't know you were ready for dessert." Strange remark!
The food we ordered was delicious. However my second course (not chosen by me, automatically given by the restaurant) was shrimp and my shrimp were cold/inconsistently warmed. They must have been pre-made and just reheated which was upsetting.
It's like to go back when it is not a holiday or pre fixe menu to try it again, because I suspect my dissatiafaction may be largely attributed to that.
