Nero's is the prime "go-to" spot for Livingstonians and for a long time the restaurant seemed to take its'regulars for granted. The food was consistently ok and the prices got higher and higher. Lately though, the food has improved A LOT, the menu has become more diverse, and it is a far more enjoyable place to dine. On most nights... More

The consistency of the food is unparalleled, and the service is top notch - We visit this restaurant four to five times annually - The staff always greet us as if we reserve a table every week - While ordering our drinks the waitstaff usually finishes our order for us, remembering that we drink dirty martinis. The hostess always stops... More

4 of us enjoyed dinner Friday night, including the lemon chicken special and salmon. All but one took home a doggy bag, including extra carrot cake that was itself bugger than a double serving at most restaurants. Amazing and very good too.

We always have our company Christmas party at Nero's and love it. I never have had even just a fair meal there. Food is great. People are great and yet I only go two or three more times during the year. The shrimp are as large as baby lobster tails. Chopped salad a staple , then never have missed with... More

This restaurant has lived for years on a reputation that I think is better it deserves. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. It's too pricey and I feel you can get food as good, if not better in other places. It is a little more upscale than other places, but not that much. I just feel they... More

I had lunch at Nero's today with two others - excellent service and food. The restaurant is beautiful and clean, the service very prompt, polite, and attentive without being annoying. We shared several apps, entrees and desserts and everything was excellent.

This restaurant has been around for quite a while. It's very popular for business lunches and dinners because the food is great and the menu is varied. However, everything is ala carte, so nothing is included with any entree. The side dishes can add up fast. Also, because this is so popular, even on a weekday night it's often very... More

Was visiting Short hills NJ on a business trip. Hotel recommended this back for a good steak. It was a great steak, cooked to perfection and meet the fine dining standards. A must visit in you are in the location. Too bad I did not take pics.

We go there on Monday or Tuesday because our favorite waitress, Mary Grace works then. Not only is our meal always superb, but Mary Grace is so exceptional we couldn't dine without her!! The food is always delicious as is the service. Even the busboy knows to bring extra bread sticks and butter for us. What else can you ask... More
