I've visited Nero' with friends occasionally. The food is very good. The salads are fresh,the burgers are juicy,and the lobster rolls are to die for. We plan on going again in May.Very much looking forward to it.

Been there many times - guess I've never paid attention to the price of a glass of wine. Clos du Bois chardonay by the glass - $12 or $13. Cost of a bottle to Nero's - $8.00. Let's estimate 5 pours to a bottle. Not a bad mark up . Will never go back. What a rip off

The thing I like about this restaurant is that on a Saturday night during the holiday season, they can still serve really good food to a really crowded restaurant, and the service is fantastic!! We were 7 celebrating a birthday on a Saturday night, and believe me, we were packed in tight. The menu is so interesting! My husband had... More

Nero's is the prime "go-to" spot for Livingstonians and for a long time the restaurant seemed to take its'regulars for granted. The food was consistently ok and the prices got higher and higher. Lately though, the food has improved A LOT, the menu has become more diverse, and it is a far more enjoyable place to dine. On most nights... More

The consistency of the food is unparalleled, and the service is top notch - We visit this restaurant four to five times annually - The staff always greet us as if we reserve a table every week - While ordering our drinks the waitstaff usually finishes our order for us, remembering that we drink dirty martinis. The hostess always stops... More

4 of us enjoyed dinner Friday night, including the lemon chicken special and salmon. All but one took home a doggy bag, including extra carrot cake that was itself bugger than a double serving at most restaurants. Amazing and very good too.

We always have our company Christmas party at Nero's and love it. I never have had even just a fair meal there. Food is great. People are great and yet I only go two or three more times during the year. The shrimp are as large as baby lobster tails. Chopped salad a staple , then never have missed with... More
