Bistro | Rumson, New Jersey - Central

This was our first time at the Old What's your Beef and its an improvement. I found the restaurant to be comfortable with a noise level that made conversation very easy which is a novelty in the day. Our waiter Casey was excellent making good suggestions and not rushing us at all in the ordering process We shared the Wedge salad which was great, the Mussels which were not so great. My partner had the Pork Milanese which was quite good but a bit overdone. This is common with pork dishes unfortunately. My burger was excellent with a great Beef flavor my only suggestion is to reduce the number if fries there were way too many and it seems a waste. We will go back and try some other dishes because its comfortable here. My only caveat is if you are looking for fish your choices will be very limited More

This was our first time at the restaurant and will definitely be back. Food was very good, reasonably priced Seafood restaurant with fresh entrees and daily specials, some being an excellent deal. Service was outstanding and ambiance was good. I usually visit a restaurant several times before reviewing, but we liked it so much, I don't think our view will change. More
