    Once again there was a long delay in getting our order (has happened before) and while the manager apologized, he did offer any compensation in the way of a drink or any reduction on our bill. The food is good and our waitress was fine ( delay was a kitchen screw up, not hers).

    This was one of the worst experiences I had at a restaurant in a long time. Waited almost 90 minutes for our food. When it did come out,it did not come all at once. 3 out of 6 meals came out then 1 meal then another and then another. Side dishes we ordered never came. Out of the 2 hrs we were there our waitress came to table maybe 3 times. Never came back to clear app dishes never asked if anyone wanted more drinks. Needless to say, not going back. Very frustrating experience 😕

    While the food was good and our waitress was attentive and accommodating, even she was frustrated with the amount of time it took for our appetizer and meals to come out of the kitchen. I ordered the eggplant parm but received eggplant rollatini. After waiting over an hour for it to arrive, there was no way I was going to ask for a correction. My husband ordered the scallops. His entree consisted of 4 medium sized scallops so he left hungry.

    The outside patio at Fratello's is a very nice option, but I think they really struggle to staff both indoor and outdoor dining. Barely any service outside and the kitchen was really backed up. It took almost two hours to get our dinner from when we sat down and when the food arrived the order wasn't accurate the the food was average, at best.

    Sea Girt is beautiful. Too bad this restaurant doesn’t live up to the area. Our waitress gave us the impression that she would rather be somewhere else doing anything but serving us. When we asked about desserts, she couldn’t have made it less appealing. Oh well. Onto the next

    We have been to Fratello's before. The food was definitely off this time. Everyone in our party of 4 was disappointed. Will probably give it a try again. Could have been an off night. On a positive note our server was great. Bubbly and hard working.

    The food and service was horrible. We ordered two appetizers. One never arrived and the shrimp cocktail wasn’t clean nor deveined. The salad and entrees were tasteless. Such a disappointing anniversary dinner.

    Our waitress was very hardworking and did her best but seemed to be the only one working on a busy holiday weekend. We ended up waiting two hours for our orders and had to beg for bread from bus boys - which was provided but in very small portions. We also had a very lazy and unfriendly hostess who told us our reservation was not ready even though there were several empty tables. The main entrees eventually arrived after numerous apologies but we were starving at this point as the appetizer and salads were very small portions. Very disappointing overall considering this is a prime location in Sea Girt and the management team was clearly not ready for the holiday weekend.

    worst service/meal ever and been coming a long time. two hours later (and order was taken as soon as we sat down) food came out after begging 4 people to check on the order. order came out all wrong and looked like fell on the floor and picked up. manager apologized but kept walking away when I tried to explain myself. It was not because of lack of servers. they had plenty. so not sure if it was our server (who we had to repeat our order 3x and it was not loud in there) that forgot to put our food in...or a really bad kitchen. we did not eat anything except the crappy bread they gave us. we even had to get our own drinks from the bar. never again.

    Had a 5:45 reservation. We got seated right away, but then waited 15 minutes for someone to acknowledge us (only after we got the attention of another server). Our server apologized and said there was some confusion as to who had our table. Confusion seems to be the theme of the night. After finally taking our order, we then waited another 25 minutes for our appetizers to arrive. The calamari was luke warm, like it had been sitting out for a while. Our soup and salad came quickly after, and our entrees came out after we had been there for an hour and a half. 2 of the entrees were correct, but my filet Mignon Murphy came out as a well done steak with vegetables. The filet, advertised as 10oz, was barely 5-6 ounces. I reported the mistake to the waitress, she checked with the kitchen to find out what happened. The manager came out with my food and said a food runner grabbed the wrong plate. No apology or anything, just excuses. The food was good, and I don’t blame the waitress- clearly nobody was trained correctly. Wait staff and bussers were standing around confused most of the time, and no direction was being given to anyone. Not sure I’ll give Fratello’s another chance considering the $$ I paid for poor service, and the fact there are better restaurants in the area.
