Would recommend the grilled octopus
Appetizer and the beets
The waiter forgot my dessert. Had to ask him after waiting 25 min while others at my table enjoyed theirs.
Experience was outstanding in view of everything going on!
Well not a place for an inexpensive meal however the quality of the food and the service are wonderful. It is my wife and my go to place when we want a high end restaurant experience.
We love Varka! Fish chowder was exceptional. Alan (Allan, Allen?) our waiter was terrific. He has waited on us before and is excellent. Food is “delish”. Staff very pleasant.
The bronzini was delicious and the gigantes were especially delectable. The octopus was nicely charred and tender.
The food at Varka is incredible. The service is also excellent. They have done a great job with outdoor dining, with a very large, high ceiling tent and plenty of ventilation.
Great food, great service. Outdoor dining in a 2 big Tents a huge plus. This is our first place to go for special occasions.
Food and wait staff is superior, nice outdoor setting. Would recommend to anyone.
Food is fine although pricy. The servers are very rude. Suppose to be an enjoyable evening but waiters suchjohnny are rude. As soon as we sat down, he told us you only have two hours to dine. The wecoming staff sits us on a spot where the direct sunlight is on our eyes. We asked to be sitted somewhere else and she said its full although many tables are empty bec we came in early. These are anong other things that nafw our evening not pleasurable. Bus boys are fine.
Forgot we were outdoors. Nicely done, Varka! Food came hot. Service just right-no hovering or ignoring.
Excellent Food- Service was a bit disappointing. Waited long time when asked for water refill.
It was great to be back at this restaurant. The outdoor seating is comfortable, and good ventilation made us feel safe and secure.
I miss you cookie pyramid inside 😉
Went here with friends for my birthday everything was well done we will return.
Great night out. Even under the current circumstances.
We dined with friends to celebrate our birthdays and had all eagerly anticipated our meal. Varka did not disappoint. The outdoor seating was spacious and comfortable. We were promptly greeted and ushered to our table. Our food and drink was served timely without being rushed. Everything was visually appealing and delicious. Looking forward to our next visit.
Fabian best waiter ever
Came for a birthday dinner. Server was great, cocktails were great, the food has been better. We used to love Varka but the quality of the food seems to have decreased. The scallops and halibut were both very over cooked, and the chips appetizer seemed old and did not have the fresh crispy texture it used to. The cheesecake however was delicious as always. Will most likely wait a while before returning as most restaurants seem to be short staffed due to the worlds current situation so would want to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Food is always great at Varka. The service, however, was seriously lacking this time. It was a Monday evening and not busy at all, yet we always had to look for our waiter. Dirty plates sat in front of us for far too long.
An off night, for sure.
Another great meal at Varka. They've successfully converted their summer dining patio to accomodate 3 season outdoor dining (would even work in winter if NJ would reverse it's arbitrary rule banning propane space heaters used safely elsewhere for over 40 years!) The lunch menu is a good value with excellent selection and fair portions for a midday meal. Keep up the good work!
Outdoor dining under the tent was lovely. My daughter had the Arctic char and it came with two very large and delicious pieces of fish. I had the loop de Mer and it was glorious, as usual. My husband had the pompano and was not disappointed. And of course the Varka chips are always a treat. Service was great and the atmosphere was very nice. Chandeliers in the tents really made for a nice ambiance.
As usual, appetizers were great and large portions. But surf and turf special was terrible - there was crab in the baked potato (not mentioned), the filet was fatty and the shrimp was overcooked and hard. Really not good. And after the second glass of water, we did not see the water pitcher again the whole night. Outdoor tent with chandelier was lovely.
Wonderful experience for our anniversary. Delicious food. Outdoor dining area is beautiful and tables are nicely spaced apart.
Excellent meal outdoors, nicely distanced. We had not been here for several years. It did not disappoint; the quality was as good as ever.
At first I was disappointed. Staff received us rather coldly . We requested something to put a fresh flower bouquet and we got attitude from 2 different staff . Luckily our waiter cane to the rescue. Got a wine bucket arranged it and all with a smile on his face. Saved the day . Wish I could remember his name. He gets 4 starts.
It’s was our aunts 75 birthday and first outing since Covid started. We wanted it to be perfect . Food was great & though Didn’t start will , at least it ended that way.
Dining on the patio is delightful. Food is delicious and service is great!
I was very surprised to learn upon being seated there was a 2 hour limit to our reservation. No one made any mention of that to me when I booked and later confirmed the reservation. As it was a special occasion (celebrating a good friends birthday) I feel this is something the management should have made clear right from the start. And as it turned out, by the time two hours passed, the place was almost empty. Other than being somewhat pressured to order- the waiter kept coming over to take our order when it was very clear we were talking and enjoying our drinks- the service was good as was the food. The complimentary birthday dessert was a nice touch.
Excellent restaurant! The food is fantastic. The service is wonderful!
My absolute favorite seafood restaurant for overall BEST dishes for flavor, product and creativity, as well as A+ customer service and appreciation!
Always a terrific lunch! Thank you, Varka Fish House!
Lovely meal in tasteful atmosphere. Surprise birthday dessert. Very enjoyable.
Delicious food, and the nicest tent for outdoor dining my wife and I have seen, complete with crystal chandeliers!
Service was impeccable.
As always , a great experience. Wait staff is always attentive and courteous. Food never fails ...
Dover sole was excellent and prepared simply. Could chose from a selection of vegetables to suit your tastes. Felt like we where on vacation. An overall enjoyable experience.
Fish was very fresh. Cooked perfectly. Great drinks.
Wonderful Greek salad. The grilled octopus was tender and delicious. Dorado was cooked to perfection!
The service was unfortunately poor tonight. Very rude and slow staff. The restaurant was not overly busy where the staff seemed swamped with other tables. The server did not seem to care about our table nor providing us with a good customer experience. We love to support local businesses and while we spent a decent amount of money on food and drinks, the service did not represent the kind of high end establishment that Varka is. Very disappointed in management for not going above and beyond for us even after we expressed our disappointment. The food and drinks are great, but after tonight I would rather take our business elsewhere.
The food and waiters were great.
My problem was with the manager. After finishing dinner my wife asked for a last drink and we were told by the waiter he needs to check with the manager. No reason was given why. After waiting for 15 minutes and the waiter not returning I found the manager who did not want to be bothered and try to walk away from me. Once I got his attention he said there is a 2 hr dining law in NJ. I cant seem to find that anywhere on the NJ gov website, either way someone should have said something when making reservations or while we are being seated not rudely ignore us while we are sitting at the table.
Halibut over cooked
the octopus, tomato salad and the chips are just the appetizers and they are the best !!!!
