We are from Pennsylvania and became Anjelica fans when our daughter attended Monmouth university. It was recommended by a family from Monmouth Beach that she babysat for. We started visiting in 2007 and come back every time we visit. Our daughter and husband purchased a home in Tinton Falls and had an open house in August. My husband wanted to... More

Anjelica's is simply wonderful - amazing food, impeccable service. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is tight quarters, can get a bit noisy and parking can be a challenge (especially in the summer). It's very popular, so sometimes suffers from this (delayed seating, loud people). Still, my big treat of the year is that... More

We love Angelica's Restaurant. The food is wonderful...everything we've tried was great. There is always a long list of specials that sound amazing and it's difficult to select only one entrée! It's always packed, so a reservation is a must. It is a very family-oriented restaurant. The staff is very friendly and helpful with the menu. Enjoy!

Do make reservations but don't expect to sit at that time. There is no rush at this byob. Disappointed in the fact that everyone raves about this place yet they run out of food. I guess you must come early. The stuffed fig appetizer was delicate to the palate and delivered big on flavor. I don't recommend the crab cake... More

Listen, Angelica's is good restaurant. In some cases, it's really good. BUT...they really don't honor reservations. Even on a Thursday night..there's a ton of regulars, (I thought I was one too)- and they turn no one away. It seems like a score to get a table. This said, the food is mostly good. Their octopus, which once was spectacular, is... More

The restaurant is lovely but LOUD and the service was inconsistent. We've been there only a few times and clearly unless you're a regular (which we are not), the service is not the best which is odd given the number of wait staff. We sat directly next to "regulars" and I decided that I needed a 2nd napkin to cover... More

Nice that they took and honored reservation. Service uneven. Ordered 2 salads and 2 appetizers. Delivered one salad and had to wait for the other. In waiters haste then brought a chicken parm appetizer instead if eggplant parm and realized it after we cut into it. Brought right one, but instead of leaving chicken on the table, grabbed it and...
