“Very good local fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Nero's is very well supported by locals. They offer an excellent selection with fresh fish and meats. The portions at times seem too large. Last night 4 of us shared 2 appetizers and 3 entrees. We couldn't do dessert. They have a friendly wait staff and the service is excellent. The bar always seems crowded and boisterous. Make a reservation and ask for the garden room near a window. The noise is less and the dinner conversation is quiet. You always have a good meal at Nero's.

“Lively crowd and delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

I've been here quite a few times and always leave happy and full. A great wine selection paired with a knowledgable staff. My medium rare steak has always been perfectly cooked, and their seafood is also on the same level. I've been here with little kids and have never felt uncomfortable. All in all a great place.

“Not Nero's”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

It is the only restaurant in Livingston that has been there for over 50 years so they must be doing something right?... On a week night my friends and I decided to check out their early bird dinners. We were not regular dining customers and did not feel that welcome. We were told that we would have to be out by 7:00pm because our table had a reservation at that time. (The restaurant was near empty when we came in at 5:55pm) We ordered our dinner despite the fact we would have to leave. Maybe it was the tone or the attitude. Perhaps if they had been a little nicer? We saw how some of the regular patrons were treated with the staff gushing over them and making a big deal about them... We ordered our food. The food was ok but we had to wait for it. Knowing we had to be out at a certain time caused a sense of anxiety. The regular menu was very expensive. The dessert options were out of my price range. We did not feel appreciated nor do we have any interest in trying the regular priced menu.

“good place for locals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

although very loud (this is NOT a place to dine with old friends you really want to talk with) the food is always good. always ask to sit in the Garden Room - much prettier as the rest of the place needs a serious re-do.
