La Fontana Coast
Lobster ravioli sautéed with crabmeat, scallops and baby spinach finished in pink cognac sauce
Our server Angelo was fantastic and made our evening wonderful. We love this location and the food never disappoints!
Our waiter was excellent and the food was outstanding!
Very disappointing. The quality seems to have gone downhill, especially sauce on not very hot veal dish which tasted like something you’d expect from a cafeteria meal.
Scallops wrapped in bacon and pesto!
great food great service fun night.
Food and service were wonderful but specials were extremely overpriced as were the desserts. No prices on dessert menu which did not help.
Always a fantastic experience! Great food and service despite being very busy.
The food was very expensive .
There was nothing special about the meal itself
Generally, I am very pleased with this restaurant. However, they were clearly overbooked this evening, and this created a somewhat uncomfortable atmosphere. They were attempting to handle it as best as possible, but the logistics of the place make that a difficult task. I will avoid dining there on Friday and Saturday in the future.
We had Bianco as our server and he is outstanding. Very personable and attentive. The food is consistently well above average. I had the Capellini Positano which was delicious. My wife had the Rigatoni Bolognese which she said was also great. We dined at the end of the season, so the restaurant was a little short staffed and the wait was a little long. It was definitely worth the wait as the food was hot when it came out and very tasty.
Very busy night. Daria did a good job.
Great dining experience. Was outdoors. Only minor drawback is that I noticed the portions are smaller than normal…perhaps a COVID thing -rather than major increase in prices???
Always great! Server was outstanding. Only complaint was no grated cheese made it our table . Lol!
The worse experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The waiter Benito was rude, unresponsive, and condescending. It was a Tuesday night and not that crowded. He took forever to take our order. We had a 2 and 4 year old with us. Asked to get their meatballs as soon as possible. If it wasn’t for the wonderful bus girl who kept us supplied with bread it would have been worse. When I asked him to check on our food he said he’d be right back. 15 minutes later no response When I approached him again the hostess stepped in and checked for us. 10 minutes later we got our food which was not hot. This is the 2nd time I’ve had this waiter. Never sit on the left hand side of the outdoor dining. He was bad then and worse this time. We spent 2 hours here and will never return.
The hostess gave us cannoli to take home and a 10% discount. The bill was still over $100 for cold food and an ignorant waiter. We gave the bus girl $20 and zero to the waiter.
Stay away from here. They overbook tables, treat you like they are doing you a favor and steal your money.
Was able to make a reservation very quickly for within 15 minutes. Food was outstanding! Will go there again!
Always a great time. Great food and great service
Great food great service
It was the worst experience I have had in years and years. We showed up before our scheduled time. There were dozens of people showing up and saying they had a reservation and they told us under their breath that they did not. The hostess, who was clearly overwhelmed just seated them anyway. No one was giving their names ...just saying they had reservations, including us, who had reservations. When we did get seated , they sat us in an isle right up against another party. It felt very awkward. We waited 20 minutes for anyone to show up and acknowledge us.. We ordered our full meal immediately, knowing everything would take some time given how many people were there and how obviously under staffed they were. We are understanding people, but this was not enjoyable. 20 minutes later, our waitress showed up again, still no water , bread or drinks, but she said that what I ordered was no longer available. At that point, 40 minutes in. We got up and left, told our waitress that we were not going to stay. She, obviously did not want us to leave but could not offer anything else to make this dinner enjoyable.
We apologize for the experience you had while dining. We are aware of the incident that took place Monday evening as there was a glitch with our reservation services and some tables were double booked. We have found and corrected the issue. As this is no excuse for your experience, we would like the opportunity to correct your view of us and send you a gift card. Please provide us with your email address so we may send you a gift card.
Good food and service! Great location
What a pleasure. The food was excellent. Service best so far. Thank you for a great experience great food and service.
Great food…fun atmosphere…your at the beach, you can’t help but have a good time!
It was a crowded night, but the staff handles everything great. Dinner was fabulous
Will not go back ever
WE loved the delicious food we had last night at La Fonatana Coast! Excellent Bolognese and risotto. funghi .. !!
However, and yes, it was a Saturday night, the noise level was awful and way too many people are seated in the restaurant at the same time. We were seated very near the door and servers passed us constantly with plates and bags on their way in and out. It was like watching a circus of delicious food and people swirling around us. Good thing we were only 2 since it would have been difficult to have a talk among more.
We would only recommend going in the spring or fall!
Ordered dinner and was told possible 40 minute wait. 3 of our entrees came after 40 to 45 mins ... the next 2 entrees came 20 to 25 mins later ... only after much prodding of wait staff. After the other 2 entrees came, we were told by wait staff it wasn't their fault. A bus boy came over ande asked if we had an issue and could we explain it to him so he could solve. Almost commical. No customer service. Stay away at all costs.
BYOB is fine, but needs to be more obvious on website. Food was good, but some of it overpriced. Tables have you packed in like sardines with very little aisle space. No way to move about in restaurant without infringing on other patrons space. (Not the place to be if not vaccinated) Men's and women's bathrooms are single occupancy which formed lines. Wait staff was excellent (attentive and friendly)
Our occupancy limits are provided by the state & city and therefore out of our hands. Knowing that, we have brought on staff to strictly clean, have hand sanitation stations, employees wear masks & we follow the guidelines given. Insinuating our establishment is not safe could be detrimental to our business & is a matter of opinion. You were also within your right to leave our establishment & contact mgmt. if you felt unsafe, please inform me of which manager you spoke to regarding your concern?
Place was busy, summer time at the shore, but service was very god and accommodating. Order the linguine pescatore but wanted the rosa cognac cream sauce the waitress said no problem! Both dishes were very good, wife had seafood risotto red. Would recommend to anyone who likes Italian food.
A great noght dining outdoors at our favorite restaurant! Party of 7 - 5 "newbies" and everyone enjoyed their meals. Great appetizers, loved the Artichoke app. We had a few "foodies" in our group and they made a return reservation before leaving - what does that tell you!
Amazing service was delivered by Olivia - smiling, jovial, informative and very caring & attentive. Definitely motivated us to tip well above the set gratuity for a table of 7.
We also appreciated the bug spray accomodation on this very humid evening, neutralizing what could have been an issue.
La Fontana Coast - still & always the best!!
Best restaurant in sea isle! Yummy pasta special and branzino. Perfect for a birthday or just a great night out.
We had a blast as always
Great waiter Bianco, food always delish, nice table outdoors
Good food, but waited an hour for the entrees. Nice seating outside, waitstaff very friendly.
Our food was outstanding as was the service!!! It was a little noisy.
We requested inside and we were seated outside. We ordered the Baratta special but received the one from
the menu. It was super loud and we were outside. People with coolers and solo cups were standing over you while you ate. You will not see be here again anytime soon.
We apologize for the dining experience you had however, we did not have a Baratta special this evening. We have contacted OpenTable and they informed me that they can see you made a reservation but we never checked you in and they system timed out your reservation stating you left at 12:27am. They have guided us for the future but because we did not mark you hadn't arrived it allowed for your review to be written. Again we apologize but believe you dined elsewhere this evening.
My favorite restaurant down the shore! Excellent authentic Italian food and wonderful service!
Our server was absolutely excellent.
Food was mediocre at best. Price was very high. Staff was helpful though.
Value for dollar is worth every dime. Food absolutely delicious. Service was a bit less attentive than usual but everyone is short staffed and so this was not due to a lack of hustle among the waitstaff. However there was more of a mechanical feel than a "famiglia" feel in the service. What has made LaFontana a standout experience in the past, was the attentiveness of the staff, making it a unique dining experience.
LaFontana still remains the restaurant against which other Sea Isle restaurants are measured. They should continue to maintain that perch.
