In a setting of casual elegance, Anjelica’s takes inspiration from the rich culture of Italian cuisine as well as local, seasonal ingredients that abound the Jersey Shore. Sourcing from local purveroys, Anjelica's takes pride in using fresh farm eggs for their homemade pastas and using organic produce as often as the market allows. The heart of Anjelica's is a blend of comfort and freshness.
Anjelica’s was devastated by hurricane Sandy on October 29, 2012. It was rebuilt from the ground up and 350 days later reopened its doors to critical praise. Anjelica’s continues to capture a unique warmth and comfort and maintains its reputation as one of New Jersey’s finest and most beloved restaurants.
Absolute great experience! Saturday night they were super busy (as expected) we had to wait a little, but It did not phase us. The service made up for it and the food was phenomenal. The entire team showed true hospitality and had a genuine way about them. Cannot wait to go back.
Pastably the best pasta I’ve had in NJ!
This place is absolutely amazing. Best restaurant in New Jersey. Everything we ordered was sensational. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a new restaurant.
great waiter and food!
Always a beautiful lunch experience even when the dining room is at a vibrant full capacity. While the restaurant is often booked, it is never too loud, and has good energy and ambiance. The wait staff doesn't miss a thing, with warm and professional service, but the food is the star. Try the orange cake for dessert! Amazing place.
My wife took me here for my birthday. We made this reservation in early January and I was really looking forward to a great experience. We had a 630pm reservation. We arrived on time and after a few minutes, we were seated. The place was full and pretty noisy. We ordered the chopped salad. My wife did not care for the salad as it had too much vinegar. My wife ordered the veal chop and requested it medium rare. I ordered the chicken special which I was told would be moist and crispy on the outside. It seemed like it took a long time to get our entrees. They brought our entrees and my wife’s veal chop was overcooked and burnt. My chicken was tender, but not crispy as I was informed it would be. My birthday dinner was ruined!
We decided to leave. My wife spoke to the manager and he gave us a $50 gift certificate. I thought it should have been at least $100. We went to another restaurant which was much better. Very disappointed with Anjelicas and feel it’s overrated.T
Excellent food, Excellent service from our waiter Kyle!!
We had such a great time we did not realize folks were waiting for the table! So sorry about that! We will certainly be back soon!!
Best food and service around!!
Mediocre expensive food in a super crowded loud place
Once again, Anjelica's offered us a wonderful dining experience. The food superb and the staff attentive and friendly. Looking forward to our next visit!
One of the top 5 Restaurants in the state. I have been going there for over 10 years and have never been disappointed. However get an early reservation. After 6:30 you will wait at least 30 mins. past you reservation time. But it’s worth the wait.
Fresh food, unique combinations. The service and atmosphere perfect. I’d definitely recommend
Amazing as always!
Delicious food as always! It was Valentine’s Day and our reservation was for 9:30. It was packed and we weren’t seated until 10ish but the host took care of us and took 20% off the bill. So sweet! Will always return to Anjelica’s! I ordered the lamb chops and they were by far the best lamb chops I have ever ordered.
Anjelica’s never disappoints. We have been there many times and plan on returning many more.
Very accommodating for gluten feee! Even made the fried eggplant with rice flour for me. It was delicious!!
Very glad we took an early reservation, looked like people with later ones were waiting quite a while. The food was delicious but not the best I’ve had. Our server was very friendly but a little forgetful twice. The Napoleon dessert was fabulous!
Food was amazing and fresh!! Always good service. I’d recommend to anyone. Great place.
Top-notch food. Attentive service. Right next to the beach for a walk before or after in good weather. Worth a 45-minute drive to us when we’re willing to spend > $100 on a special meal. BYOB so you save a little.
This is our go-to restaurant. The food is always amazing, and we always leave stuffed! The only time we dine anywhere else is when we can’t get a reservation.
Oscar is fantastic, always friendly and accommodating. Food was terrific, best meal I’ve had awhile.
We always enjoy dining at Anjelica’s. Good food and ambiance- always an enjoyable evening.
Always great.....wish I could get reservations easier.
Anjelica's Restaurant is a truly perfect dining experience here at the Jersey Shore. I would highly recommend to any of my friends or family.
Great service and amazing food. Went above expectation. Will definitely be back!
We were seated at our reservation time. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was amazing. Loved everything and can’t wait to go back.
Such a great night! Anjelicas made my birthday so special. The food, the ambiance,....everything was perfect! Thank you!
Hard to compare the food to anywhere else locally. Inventive, fresh, plentiful.
Server was exceptional as are the table attendants.
They should put a curtain or something to the restroom entrance as our table overlooked everyone coming and going.
Otherwise, I couldn’t possibly give the overall experience 5stars
Always amazing...Nuff said! Staff as always was terrific.
Fabulous food and service! Can’t wait to go back!!!!!
I had heard great things about Anjelica's and I thought it wouldn't live up to my expectations but it definitely did. I can't wait to go back.
Angelica's never disappoints! Great food, great service. Cant wait to go back!
Took family and friends out to celebrate a new job and as always. Anjelica’s never disappoints. Can’t wait to go back in February.
Lovely date-night environment. Always a winner with special menu items that are creative and fresh. Delicious.
Always a fabulous dining experience!!
Another outstanding dinner experience!
This is a HARD reservation to get. We waited nearly two months for a Sunday night reservation and overall we were underwhelmed. It was PACKED, despite the fact that it was a Sunday night. The food was good; however, I could barely hear my husband when he talked. I did hear every word the people next to us were saying though--to say it's a tight fit in the restaurant is indeed an understatement. There is little to no room to move. At one point, as the waiter was trying to take our order he was stopped no fewer than 10 times as people simply tried to walk by. My husband ordered a pasta special with seafood. When we got our food we were upset to see that his dish (which we later found out when we got the check was $42) was some seafood on the plate and about 10 strands of linguine. Additionally, our appetizer was good (we got the Citrus Salad) but again underwhelming. My husband left hungry from a dinner for which we paid $130 with tip. He shouldn't have been hungry. We will not be going back
Delicious dinner. Had a roasted cauliflower appetizer which was delicious as well as the Sunday sauce. Excellent waiter!
The food was phenomenal. I heard from coworkers and family friends that I should check out Anjelica's since I just moved to the area. My boyfriend and I were amazed with the quality of the food at a BYOB. We mostly ordered the specials of the day, but everything on the menu and available as specials sounded amazing! The least pleasant part of our meal was having to decide on one dish each since everything sounded delicious. We both got an appetizer, entree, and a dessert to share. I cannot wait to make a reservation again!
Great restaurant. Loved our meal again. Tough to get reservation.
