We came here for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner on 2/14/17. Were we ever deceived! They advertise that they are a very romantic restaurant with "private dining alcoves" and romantic "nooks" and on their website. They have pictured beautiful private tables. That was not the case at all. We were seated in a row with other tables, less than a... More

While we would love for every one of our guests to be able to dine at private, romantic alcove tables, we only have a select number of them. I sincerely apologize that you were expecting a different experience when you dined with us. Valentine’s Day is a... More

My Wife ordered Sole Special with Scallops. Scallops seemed undercooked. Sole was smothered in Sauce. She was awake all night nauseous from the food. I ordered Veal Shank. Not something that I would normally eat, but, I couldn't find anything else. It was fair, at best. Server was new. Had no knowledge about anything on the Menu. He was totally... More

My husband took me here for our anniversary. I was totally blown away by the atmosphere and food! It's very quiet and romantic. The food was just as great as the atmosphere! It also has a chocolate store in the same parking lot which is genius. When making a reservation, be sure to ask for an inset table around the... More

Great food in an interesting & cozy atmosphere. It was heavily decorated for Valentine's Day. We had the crab cake & seasonal salad as appetizers. Both were excellent. For dinner I had the spinach salad and topped it with grilled shrimp. My husband had the Tuna Steak (very rare). We were very pleased.

Scarborough Fair is located in what one think would be a busy setting. However, after you turn off the highway you are in a wooded property and a Swiss chalet. The tables are set up to provide private spaces and the kitchen is great. They accommodate all allergies seamlessly and deliciously. Like anywhere at the jersey shore, service can be... More
