Were here with several couples the other night. Reservation was accepted, and table was waiting when we got there. The place is attractive; the menu is pretty extensive and the prices are reasonable, but can be on the high side if everyone is ordering appetizers, coffees and desserts. BYOB helps quite a bit in that respect. The server was ok,... More

Went for our anniversary. It was a Monday night after 8 pm, so the place was pretty quiet. Server was attentive, without hovering. Explained the specials (and gave the prices- something we think all restaurants should do). We had the Grilled Salmon with vegetables, and the Pork Chops Giambotta. We both enjoyed the dishes very much. The vegetables with the... More

My family and I dined here recently, four adults and one child for my mother-in-law's birthday. We'd been a few times before but not for many years. Christie's is the epitome of an upscale Italian place fairly common in New Jersey, for many people their favorite kind of place. A little fancier than other quality Italian places in the area...

The food is serviceable, but not outstanding. I had a chicken dish and the chicken was very overcooked. We had a cold antipasto that was good, but the cheese was not very flavorful.

Christie's has to be the best Italian Restaurant in Monmouth County. Everything is cooked so fresh. There was only one Restaurant that I enjoyed a good salmon and that was in Alexandria Virginia. Well I found a second one in my own back yard. Christie's has a fantastic wild salmon. DELICIOUS!

We recently hosted a rehearsal dinner at Christies. We are from Pennsylvania so had to rely on other peoples recommendations. The food and service was excellent. We had 37 people and the restaurant was crowded with other patrons so the service could have been slow but it wasn't. They took care of chilling the beer and wine and the dessert... More

We had my rehearsal dinner here and everything was amazing. The owner and staff were very easy to work with. The food is outstanding! Anything that you order will be outstanding. The party was enjoyed by all. I recommend if you are having a party to ask and see if you can use the larger room. It has it's own... More

Five of us went to dinner there last night for a mini celebration. The food was excellent, service was superb, the ambiance was welcoming, and we were not rushed at all. In fact, we spent more than three hours there eating and talking. The server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and they were very accommodating to one of us... More
