A comfortable eatery for business or gathering with friends. Service is top notch. Well-prepared food. Nice bar crowd. Can't go wrong with this restaurant.

The room was nice with good spacing between the tables and the hostess was pleasant. The complimentary olive oil, olives and cheese plate and bread shared with the drinks ordered was delightful and tasty. The menu and the specials offer a broad selection of dishes sure to satisfy many. One of us ordered swordfish from the specials menu and asked that waiter check on whether chicken broth was in the sauce. The waiter didn't think so, but agreed to check. He came back and indicated chicken stock was in the dish. We asked whether they could make it without chicken stock. He said no, and hands us a new specials menu, identical to the original with the swordfish replaced with snapper. It seems odd that they wouldn't just say they were out of swordfish instead of saying they couldn't make the dish because chicken stock was already in it. The snapper dish on the menu was the exact same preparation. While the snapper dish was flavorful, the fish seemed to be placed on the plate with no attention to plating (which one should expect when paying close to $35 for an entrée). It was uneven, swimming in sauce and parts were not tender. The unpleasant texture of the accompanying potatoes seemed to result from undercooking and then microwaving since they were still tough. The second entrée, a spaghetti dish which appeared to have strands of spaghetti stuck together, was barely touched. We have heard great things about this restaurant so we'll assume it was just not a good night for them. We didn't order dessert.

We dine here often because it has a feeling of warmth from coming in to our server , John, who know his menu & has a friendly personality without being in your face during the dining experience.
The food is very tasty and the portions are bigger than I can consume without taking something home.
They offer a Sunday special offering so check it out.

Two of us dined there for lunch. We had two different salads...both fresh and delicious. Wait staff attentive and friendly. I love the little touch of (besides delicious bread) the cheese and olives before the meal. A lovely place for lunch or dinner.

Waiters had good personalities, funny & on the ball.
Food was fantastic. My father wanted something not on the menu and they accommodated him.

Good atmosphere; comfortable yet upscale - defiantly a place I can take family or clients.

I have been to Sanzari's many times, both for lunch and dinner with my spouse and friends.
The help is always welcoming and friendly. The food is consistently good and always a better quality of meat, fish and vegetables.
The ambience is " old world elegant", relaxed and comfortable.
One of my favorite places to eat.

The food was excellent. The service was attentive, courteous and very professional. It was our 39th wedding anniversary, and the staff presented our desserts with lit candles — a thoughtful surprise! My wife’s sole Francese was superb, and my shrimp with pappardelle was equally good. We have only dined at Sanzari’s twice, but we are eager to return as frequently as we are in New Jersey. Sanzari’s is well worth the price.

We've reviewed this restaurant several times, so will just touch on what was new for us last Wednesday. For the first time, I ordered the salmon fillet. Had thought I might not like the "horseradish crust," but could hardly taste any horseradish. So I was happy. This entree is served with escarole, which was something different---tasty and appreciated. The roast potatoes were perhaps not as fresh as usual that night because the restaurant was VERY full. But we will continue to be regular diners there.
