We had an outside reservation and were very pleased with our table on the side patio away from the street. The service was attentive and fast and our food was fresh, delicious, served hot and at the same time. The scallops amazing and were perfectly...cooked and served with an eggplant and spiral zucchini in a delicious sauce. The burger and fries was cooked as ordered and the swordfish with smoked potatoes was excellent). The salad appetizers were fresh and large. It is a BYO. We will definitely return and were impressed that everyone wore masks and kept things clean, wiping down chairs etc after each guest. The outdoor dining was packed so a reservation is definitely suggested.More

Hey there John, Seems like you might need some things cleared up. Our burger is double the size of those at BBP and we also use almost all local ingredients to make it- tomatoes, lettuce, cheddar, eggs. Ours also comes with a side of hand...More

If I could rate zero stars I would. We arrived to the outdoor hostess podium on time for our well in advance/confirmed pre booked outdoor table for 4 for a super special occasion. We were informed by hostess that we could not be seated outdoors...because the reservation was procured online and due to a glitch in their system we could only be seated indoors.... well.. it is a covid pandemic but it was a special occasion so after talking amongst ourselves we all agreed indoors would be ok. Well it only got worse from there. We were ushered in to the indoor area when a very quick and unfriendly waitress ran over to our table and informed us we had to vacate the table in 90 minutes because she had another incoming reservation. This was super uncomfortable for us and quickly put a damper on our happy family celebration. We tried to laugh it off amongst ourselves but it was super uncomfortable. We then placed our orders after the waitress came to our table TWICE to ask what we wanted. While waiting for our appetizers we noted that one of the tables for 2 pushed together for our party of 4 was super wobbly. My husband and son tried to fix it but it was more than a napkin under the table leg could fix. We finally had to ask the waitress if she could possibly find a table that didn’t jiggle every time someone touched it. She told us there was not another table and proceeded to tip our table upside down on the dirty floor and tried to tighten the bolt... to no avail... she then returned it right side up and placed it in front of us again! Really? She didn’t wash it, and she didn’t change her gloves that she wore all evening! I finally told her we cannot cut any food on this table we needed a new one. Finally she pulled over another table! But now we are all thinking... is this table changing considered a part of our 90 minutes???? I could go on and on but suffice it to say... experience was poor, food was subpar our occasion was ruined. We will never return and I am telling everyone that would even consider this place to spend your hard earned money elsewhere!More

This was my first time. Service, food and entertainment were all excellent. Wonderful live music. Not at all offended by the prices if you understand freshness and quality. Owner went above and beyond to accommodate my party. I will definitely go back.

This was not our first time dining at South + Pine but our first time there for outdoor dining. My wife and I were thrilled when the hostess politely asked a group of eight who walked up to her station to put their masks on....Well done! During our dinner, I noticed how the staff wiped down chairs as well as tables to keep everything sanitized. It was also convenient to scan the QR code so we could read the menu on our phones. South + Pine is certainly doing their part to make outdoor dining doable. The food was delicious, We enjoyed sharing gazpacho and crispy squash blossoms. My wife had the grilled swordfish and I had a pasta special, which was delicious! We ended with the butterscotch pudding, a sweet ending. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The fact that there was live music made the whole dinner that much more enjoyable! Thank you for a lovely dining experience and kudos to all the staff for doing the necessary tasks to keep restaurants open and safe!More

A damn burger is $26.00? A tablespoon of Tofu $9 and a bowl of rice and veggies $17 Service was okay. Food was average, but enormously expensive!!!! Not worth the price.

We ate here with 2 other couples before a show at MAYO Theater in Morristown. First will address the ambiance. We were seated at a table at the front window with the sun glaring into the restaurant. Two of our friends had to wear sunglasses...during the meal and another a hat to block the glare. Like many restaurants, music was playing over speakers. It was loud making it difficult to hear each other and maybe it was designed for younger people, although most of us were over 50 and probably over 60. After requesting the music to be lowered, it was which is a credit to the restaurant, but before we left the volume seemed to increase. For our meal, we first ordered a pear salad. Didn't see much pear and it seemed very dry having little or no dressing. For the main course, I ordered homemade linguini with crabmeat. It was okay, did have plenty of crabmeat but seemed plain. It needed some seasoning. My wife ordered spaghetti sqush with vegetables and I had a taste and thought it was excellent. Three of our party ordered artic char but the manager came out to explain, they were all out. Since the restaurant had just reopened for the evening, it was odd that the server did not already know that. Unfortunately, did not have time before the show to enjoy dessert. The service was good. We have eaten here several times but this time was disappointing.More

I'd say this is a public service announcement. This place charges $5 split fees for entrees. My 3 friends and I went here before an event at the MPAC. We weren't overly hungry so decided to split 4 appetizers, a salad and an entree. We...were told there would be a split fee of $5 pp because we were ordering only 1 entree. Because of this we changed our order to 2 entrees and less appetizers so there would only be $10 of split fees. The appetizers were basically a bite or two for each of us ranging from $13-$17. This was not a case of the $30+ entrees were too expensive, we simply weren't that hungry. I don't know if the fact that I said we were going to split everything made a difference. Maybe if you each person ordered separately, you wouldn't be charged. But needless to say, the whole thing left a bad taste. The food was very good, not worth the price or the extra charges. Will not be back.More

The location is excellent if going to a show at the Mayo. The restaurant is small and seating is limited so I would recommend reservations. The menu is limited and a bit pricey but the food is excellent.

The carrot soup is very good. It has just a touch if kick to it. The artichoke salad with poached egg was delicious....the combinations if the flavors made my taste buds cheer.
