Now celebrating its 40th year, Nero's Grille continues to be one of north-Jersey's most popular dining scenes. We combine the highest quality, freshest ingredients with a comfortable, familiar atmosphere and service that makes you feel like one of the family. Nero's has become the area's place to see and be seen. Three separate dining rooms, and outdoor patio dining as climate permits, provide a warm, unpretentious intimacy in which to enjoy our high-quality, moderately-priced American and Italian fare, while the large bar area buzzes with the energy of friends gathering over a favorite martini or a glass of wine from Nero's award-winning list. Private rooms are also available, and our banquet staff is noted for making special events 'extra special.' After four decades, the entire Nero's family continues to take enormous pride in offering our guests, new and old, a gracious welcome, a terrific meal, and our sincere appreciation.

Fantastic local joint. Old school Italian classics with some innovative specials on a weekly basis. Bar is always packed. Great casual service and nice heavy pours from the bar. Great happy hour as well. Make sure to reserve your table early though as they book up well in advance.

New waiter , seemed nervous, but did try.
He did not listen and mixed up order.
No silverware.
The Stack- came after the Cobb salads.
The Stack should have been as appetizer.
Wanted Cokes in a bottle.
Waiter said he would fill in the back.
We insisted to have the bottle.

Restaurant is no consistent.
Manager made some bill reductions.

What a terrible experience. Being seated in a loud cramped happy hour bar table to celebrate valentines dinner. Despite having a reservation, I saw for myself that you have to be a regular customer for any service. Big disappointment.

Sat down at 5:45 right on time
Early bird special ended at 6 and we asked about it. Ordered a drink when waitress returned at 605 she wouldn’t honor discount price. Kinda chintzy on their part.

We had a group of 3 for Dinner. The service and food was above and beyond all the expectations of upscale and great food .
Our Reservations was about 1/2 hr late getting seated.. But the owner ( I think ) was the best host , and bought us drinks during the wait. Super Friendly and nice.As was our waiter too.
We had Crab cakes appetizers, Pork chops, Spinach Salad, and Spaghetti and meatballs . all was excellent!
I will definitely go many more times!

We were in town for business and really had no idea of where to go. An associate of mine recommended Nero’s and I am glad he did. The service was great as was the atmosphere. Very relaxed but you could tell everyone wanted us to feel welcome. I would definitely return on my next visit to the area.
