“Palumbo at Tinton Falls, NJ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

By sheer coincidence I joined a bus tour to New York City out of Pennsylvania and a dinner stop was planned at Palumbo's. I knew it was an Italian Restaurant and had good reviews, but it floored me banquetwise. We were a group of 49 people and had a lovely garden view private room with lots of windows and an excellent view. The 6 course menu was more than I bargained for, we even had a bottle of pretty good wine per table. From Antipasta to Salad to Pasta to main course to dessert and then fruit platter it was never ending and really good food, I can highly recommend this establishment and will be back for sure. Have I mentioned the friendly and courteous service? Incredible. And the meticulously set tables and skirted chairs - it was more like a wedding set up than a casual group dinner. Cudos for Palumbos!

“Go For The Bar”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

It appears that Palumbos is really an event spot that tries to be a restaurant too. The bar is quite good, Service was fine. The restaurant is tapas style, and some were very good. Unfortunately some were very-very bad. It was very disappointing. I was really looking forward to a good Italian meal. I absolutely would not go back. There's too many other good options to try.

“Renewed and Refined!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013

Just checked out Palumbo's since Merri Makers took it over. Bar and restaurant have been updated. Bar has a couple nice flat panel TVs. Live music in the restaurant Friday and Saturday evenings. Food was delicious! Love the tapas style menu! Great opportunity to try multiple dishes without breaking the bank. Kitchen was super quick. If food and atmosphere weren't enough, the wait staff was excellent. Looking forward to next visit.

“Great food & entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

I recently discovered Palumbo's in Tinton Falls because a musician friend of mine was playing there. This venue was recently taken over by the owner of Merry Makers in Sea Bright. Their menu consists of "small plates". Every one of the dishes I have tried so far has been absolutely delicious. What I really love about this place is that they feature a "listening room" for their live entertainment. No TVs. This shows a lot of respect for the artists and provides a much nicer experience for those who want to actually listen to the music! I have found Palumbo's to be a very friendly place. The staff & owner are attentive and welcoming. They also have a room for weddings and other events with an Event Planner on staff. If you've never been, I highly recommend Palumbo's.
