5 Star Rating The food here is absolutely divine, and the atmosphere is simply electrifying! The live music adds a whole new level of excitement. It's impossible to resist the urge to jump up and dance! We decided to celebrate Valentine's Day here, and let me tell you, it was an exceptional experience. I cannot recommend this place enough.

4 Star Rating Classic Italian Restaurant in the heart of Coney Island. We went as a large group and quickly found out they are very strict with dress code and who can come in. Several members of our group were not allowed in, which made for some tension at our table. Those who did get in were taken care of with a good meal and service. We started with some fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. To me, it was bland and the cheese rubbery with unripe tastless tomatoes. It needed oil and balsamic vinegar to wake it up. We then had their excellent zucchini fries that were light and sweet and one of the best I have had. Our pasta dish was penne with tomatoe sauce. The penne was cooked perfectly aldante, but I felt the sauce was a bit too sharp. It needed plenty of sprinkled parmasian to smooth it out. I tried the broiled salmon, which was slightly overcooked but good. I thought the egg plant parm I tasted was much better, tender, and very flavourful. The sauce on the parm to me was better than on the pasta dish. We ended with a delicious slice of their cannoli cake. It was light with the perfect balance of cream and mini chocolate chips between the layers. The regular coffee served was strong and a smooth roast but unfortunately served lukewarm. Overall, the food is very good if you choose wisely. But be prepared in this modern day to dress and look, in their acceptable way, or you might not get in.

5 Star Rating I've lived in Brooklyn my whole life, and I have never been to Gargiulo's up until now. My wife on the other hand has and spent our entire time on the quick drive to Gargiulo's talking about how good the food is....so naturally I was expecting ok food and service because that's my luck. Upon arrival, valet service was professional and efficient. The staff were welcoming and helpful, guiding us to our event hall. The food was spectacular, and risotto was my favorite and highly recommended. My only complaint was how an older gentleman treated the staff. I observed him personally treat a couple of the staff in a manner that I felt was completely out of line. When I asked the staff member, "What's his problem? " The staff member had class and shrugged it off and said nothing bad about this person. They exhibited more class and respect than this person deserved. Kudos to the staff. I highly recommend this place.

5 Star Rating Amazing. Food grew up going to this place has the best pizza ever had in my life as my grandfather brought me. People can say whatever they want about the service saying it’s hit or miss. Do you know what this place has been standing on hard-working wooden legs compared to artificial brand new legs of a dinner table and you know what I wanna pass the good word and recommendation because this place is worth the it and it’s quality and I’ve seen changes positive compassionate changes in ownerships behavior for the better with my own two eyes so I am pleased to say that to Totonnos is a great an excellent pizza Rea

5 Star Rating Death, Taxes and Totonno’s is the best pizza in NYC. These are three self evident truths I know are indisputable and irrefutable. I do not say this in a vacuum, this is not some cheap hyperbole. I’ve eaten at the great pizza shops in the NYC area, I’ve been where you’ve been! This place is truly number 1 and worth the visit. The sweet Nonna who’s taken care of so many patrons is at the helm of this establishment. She will take your order, she will ask you if you need plates and napkins, she will double check if you need more and give you more just because she knows you’ll probably need more. That’s what a Nonna does! Let’s talk about the pizza, all I have to say is GARLIC. It’s the GARLIC, they microplane that stuff into the sauce. It’s practically floating on top. The lip of the crust is being kissed ever so gently by that sauce with the consent of that garlic and sprinkling of Pecorino Romano cheese. It’s the perfect bite. This pizza is what you need and you didn’t know it. It’s weep worthy. In conclusion, it’s a 10 outta 10, 5 stars, an A+, with a 4.0GPA, it’s the valedictorian, the Rhodes Scholar, it earns the U.S. Medal of Honor for its service, it’s the Commander in Chief of all pizza forces.

5 Star Rating Went there for late lunch with family after hanging out at the beach. Got inside right away because it was not that busy. Food was great, staff were attentive and friendly. Drinks were good. Very satisfied with everything except one small thing, they need to turn on the AC a bit cooler during the hot days 🤣.

5 Star Rating After a long beach day, I wanted to eat and relax. I'm glad I chose this restaurant. The staff is pleasant and courteous. I had the grilled salmon with grilled vegetables. It was so delicious! I will definitely go back to The Red Doors when I next visit Coney Island. Also It is conveniently located close to the train station.

5 Star Rating The food was was delicious and flavorful. I had a spicy burger with sweet potato fries dipped in 🍯 honey, big onion rings that were so tasty 😋. The portions were to much to eat that I had to bring the rest home... Hope to go back when the day is not so crazy, our waiter was all over the place, but he kept apologizing for the long wait on food... the wait was worth it!

3 Star Rating Good vibes from the live dj in here on my first visit. Ordered drinks, sat at the bar. The two drinks and the tab came together. My expression caused the server to apologize. Didn't appreciate that, it felt a bit profiling, as I observed others at the bar treated differently. Had the one drink and went somewhere else. Won't return but it was ok outside of that. Clean restroom, lively ambience, tastefully decorated.

5 Star Rating Arrived there at 10:30 am and it was already full. We waited 10 minutes for the table. Luckily got the booth. Spinach and tomato omelette was delicious. Pancakes were ok but French toast was YUMMY! They have 4 different types of syrup for the pancakes. Staff is extremely helpful and very friendly.

5 Star Rating I decided to take my brothers randomly & was pleasantly surprised once I saw that they were offering new French toast. IHOP’s French toast was my go to whenever I went there but it was always a hit or miss so I was definitely excited to try the new recipe. Now that I’ve tried it I can safely say that you HAVE to try it. The new French toast is 1000 times better than the old one. I recommend you get it with whipped cream instead of butter but that’s just my preference. The slices are big & fluffy & filled me up pretty quickly. The mozzarella sticks are good too & so is the crispy breakfast potatoes. I will say it might take a few extra minutes to get your order but that’s only because there’s only one person working the tables so pls remember to tip generously. Edit: went back & the crepes are amazing

2 Star Rating It was a cold day but I love nature ; I may was ready for whatever but when it comes sometimes I’m indifferent like that day . I ordered the food in advance by phone before picking up even tho I was a few mins late I do still feel like the food was rushed . I would have wanted my chicken crispy . I also ordered coffee that day with milk and got none . And was pretty happy the fries was still good and tasted nice . Perhaps we all had a rough day but I’m not sure still you can be the judge next time in stay possibly and pancakes as desired before the take out . As far as the other meal it was for a friend so I’m not sure , thanks for reading .

5 Star Rating Great Pizzeria located in the picturesque Coney Island area right across the street from the infamous Cyclone. It offers a vast selection of all kinds of very appetizing looking pizzas, calzones, Strombolis, rolls plus many traditional Italian dishes. Interesting ambiance, very courteous and friendly staff, young bartender was kind enough to show me all sorts of exotic beers and spirits they have in stock and advised a great one-"Fat Tire" which I never had before but enjoyed tremendously and it was a perfect compliment to the slice of the magnificent Margherita pizza I picked also following an advice of a very pleasant pizza maker plus traditional Italian chicken & cheese roll which was huge and was served with a side dish of the delectable house made marinara sauce. Pizza was delicious-flavorful, scrumptious with an amazing crunchy but soft crust and lots of yummy cheese, so was the chicken roll which was so enormous, I wasn't able to eat it all and took the 2nd half home. All in all-great dining experience, definitely recommend to everyone visiting Luna Park and Coney Island beach to drop by for a refreshing drink and a hearty meal. P. S. They have this intriguingly looking machine with an ancient fortune teller-Zaltar that reminded me of an old movie with Tom Hanks "Big" where similar machine changed young boy's life forever so I couldn't resist and paid Zaltar for the reading, hoping it will change my life too.
