The other day, we went to Fresco Steak and Seafood Grill located in Milltown, NJ. We’ve had really great experiences there in the past, and decided to do a review on them.  Our experience there the other night was really wonderful.

Fresco has three dining rooms. All three of them are nice, however, the newest dining room is the nicest; having a warmer wall color and dimmer lighting.  It makes that room more intimate and enhances the mood.  We were told that they will be remodeling the first two dining rooms to be similar to the newest and more intimate one. We look forward to seeing the renovations.

Our server for the evening was Eman. She was excellent.  She was warm, friendly and had a smile the entire evening.  She really went out of her way to accommodate us and never rushed us.  Being that Fresco is a BYOB restaurant, we brought an excellent Sangiovese Red wine to accompany our meal.

Fresco has an excellent menu full of delicious selections ranging from soups, appetizers and salads to meat and seafood selections. They also have an extensive list of specials which round out the menu selection.  For the fish lovers out there, Fresco does a great job in preparing their fish entrees. My all time favorite fish dish at Fresco is their double cut Swordfish steak, which they happened to be out of that evening. Big Sad Face!  Eman broke the sad news very gently though.

For an appetizer, Ria ordered Split Pea Soup which she thoroughly enjoyed, We also ordered a wonderful appetizer special; Rock Shrimp Arrabiata in a totally amazing lemon butter sauce that was truly amazing.  Eman recommended that we try it and she was right on target. We were also served delicious bread which had a delicious crust and a soft interior.  We actually couldn’t stop eating it. Eman then brought over a batch of fresh olive oil with herbs and fresh diced garlic.  We were doomed at that point.  Truly amazing!

For dinner, Ria ordered the Grilled Baby Lamb Chops prepared medium well.  The portion of lamb was sizeable and perfectly seasoned.  Ria ordered them with mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach with garlic.  The lamb was so delicious and tender.  Wow!

Being that Fresco was out of the Swordfish, Ren and I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass prepared in the same way as the Swordfish is usually prepared. It was grilled ever so delicately and served with mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach with a lot of garlic.  Mmmm. The fish still came with the usual roasted potatoes but Eman brought the mashed potatoes on the side. The Sea Bass was totally delicious and flaky. Definitely a must eat..along with the Swordfish.

For dessert, Ria had the fresh fruit with a heaping dollop of fresh whipped cream. The berries were fresh and the whipped cream was delicious.

To sum up our evening, we all had a wonderful time at Fresco. Sunday evening was the perfect evening to eat there. It was relaxing and the restaurant was not overly crowded. Eman really helped to make the experience fun and enjoyable. Every time we have eaten at Fresco, the food has been scrumptious.  We highly recommend Fresco and look forward to eating there again.

Our next review will be on LouCás which is owned by the same owners in Edison, New Jersey. Stay tuned.
