RED Bank for Saturday Dinner

We are looking for a good place for dinner on a Saturday night in Red Bank. We are not looking for a casual place- but with great food.Any suggestions?

  1. Great food and on the formal side. The answer is Nicholas. One of the very best restaurants anywhere.


      Le Fandy in Fair Haven. (next town over.) BYOB and one of my favorite places!



        If "in" Red Bank is slightly flexible then Table in Little Silver is a wonderful dining experience.

          I agree with Val, if you are looking for "great" food in the Red Bank area, Nicholas clearly fits the bill. I'm a little confused by your post however. Are you looking for a casual restaurant? If so I would try Dish, Thyme Square or as HillJ recommends, Table. With regard to Le Fandy, its not one of my favorites. Good Luck.

            Have to agree with bgut on Thyme Square or Dish if you desire to stay in Red Bank - otherwise all of the others mentioned will fit the bill.

              bgut1, do you consider Table a casual restaurant? When we enjoyed dinner there recently the dining room was filled with well dressed guests.

                Hill - Yes, I do. By well dressed, do you mean jacket and tie for the gentlemen? But for Nicholas and Fromagerie (excepting their bars), I consider most if not all restaurants in Monmouth County to be casual. I think the trend of late is to move to that type of dining.

                  ah, I suspected that's what you meant. It's challenging to know what people mean by casual ...a town like R/B prides itself on being casual across the restaurant divide...but still I see well dressed people all over town. To me casual is a pizza parlor. Thanks for your take.
