For a beautiful restaurant that comes highly recommenced the service was sub par. For NYC prices I expected a better steak. Their house favorite never disappoint.
Food was yummy, but service was not attentive enough and the restaurant is very loud. I was also unpleasantly surprised by the price of my lobster:(. Would have liked to been given a heads up about it by the server. I would go back again... but would have appetizers at home!
Great food and service
One of the best fresh fish restaurants in Bergen area. Excellent lamb chops and lemon chicken. Delicious zucchini and eggplant chips. Even their artisan bread with Greek oil is amazing. One of our favorites
There’s no better restaurant in New Jersey.
Service was excellent and food is always consistent and delicious.
We took our son out for his 30th birthday. The food was amazing. We are loved all our meals, from appetizers to our entrees.
We came to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived early to enjoy the spicy Marguerita. The bartender was excellent and so was the cocktail. The vibe here is great and so is the food. Excellent experience .
Food and service are outstanding. The noise level is too loud, which makes it difficult to hear each other.
Always great service and food
The best food and service you will ever have. I have been going here for years and it has always been amazing
Food was amazing! The menu has a nice offering. Our waiter recommended an excellent wine. Service was a little too quick to clear plates and poured tap water into our sparkling water at the end of the meal ...
Absolutely fabulous place, will definitely go back
Went for lunch - we split the Greek salad, spinach pie and grilled octopus. The salad ingredients weren’t the freshest. Just disappointing since we Always order it.
Food is always great at Varka. The best octopus salad anywhere. Even the radishes that come to the table with the bread seem extra fresh and tasty. Highly recommend Varka.
The manager Stravinsky is amazing with guest and how he handles the floor
Very few managers as fundamentally equipped as he is
Always excellent. Service was a bit off.
Outstanding food and service as always! Will be back soon.
First time here-had wanted to try for a while. Food was excellent. Had meatball appetizer which was tasty. Build your own tower was delicious and fresh albeit a little pricey with stone crab added but great tasting nonetheless. Whole fish for dinner was fabulous as was scallops and risotto. Would definitely go back. The acoustics could be improved- very loud and can hear the conversations at the next table very easily but wouldn’t stop me from going back.
The food was extraordinary, and the service was kind and attentive. We started by sharing grilled calamari and spanakopita, both of which were fantastic. We then both had fish, which was so fresh and perfectly prepared. Varka is a lovely place to go for a special dinner. We also plan on going to the bar and sharing apps in the future. Such a pretty setting.
Everything was amazing, our server, the food was fresh and seasoned perfectly and prepared spot on! The wine complimented everything we had to eat!
Favorite restaurant...hands down!
The food is amazing at Varka
Stopped in for a quick lunch. Very attentive staff and good food. A little expensive for a lunch, but a great place to eat.
Food is great however while they have an extensive martini menu their other specialty cocktails are limited if at all.
Food is consistently outstanding. Never a bad meal. Varka is truly a gem in Northern Bergen County.
Delicious dinner! Excellent service. Just a bit pricey!
The food and service was outstanding! Only negative is the noise level is high. Other than that, loved it!
We love Varka and go frequently. This past visit we felt very rushed - for an evening out that is quite costly, they brought our appetizer 5 minutes after we placed our order and our meals were brought so quickly we were done in 45 minutes. I appreciate you want to turn your tables but this was unnecessary and took away from our overall dining experience. You are not a diner and should not pace meals as such.
Amazing service and food is always wonderful. Guaranteed great experience.
An amazing restaurant. The food is delicious and the specials awesome. I don’t like beets, but this is the inly place I eat them. Delicious!!!
Our waiter was not the usual attentive type, but his assistants were great and made sure we were taken care.
It is the most amazing seafood restaurant in the area. A must!!!
Never disappoints...fish and everything is ALWAYS fresh and perfectly prepared.
Service is spot on, attentive but not intrusive. Drinks are great. Price point a bit high, but you get what you pay for!!!
Only downside is acoustics...a bit noisy.
Nice restaurant overall: loved decor, service, and food and drink selection. Some of the dishes were very gourmet and had a great presentation, some were okay and could have been a little better.
Definitely would recommend this place and will be back to check out more.
Always an outstanding experience to dine at Varka.
Great restaurant. Food is delicious and service is great.
The noise level is very high and hard to communicate so precludes a romantic setting, per se, but the intensity is up, the service is excellent without being pretentious and the food on point.
Very good service by Fredy and our dinner was perfectly prepared we really enjoyed thank you
Varka did not disappoint. The fish dishes are always cooked to perfection and the service is solid time after time.
Delicious and innovative cuisine!
