Dr. Ladman is great, he takes the time to explain everything that will go on. My oral surgery went very smoothly, and I was especially impressed by his staff- they were nice enough to hold my hand because I'm scared of needles!
Who in the area hasn't been to a wedding or other function at Merri Makers? Their popularity attests to the fact that functions at MerriMakers are always well run, and their location can't be beat (in terms of proximity to a few good bars for after-function fun)
The Riverfront Cafe is one of those ordinary eating establishments where you know you can always go and get a meal and decent service, but nothing outstanding. I wouldn't tell you not to go, but don't go expecting anything fabulous.
There's nothing better than McCloones- great views, great service, consistantly great food. This is a great place for a nice evening out with friends- highly recommend.
Basil T's is a great option for eating out in Red Bank, even if it is a little too far off the main drag to make it convenient to park once and walk around for the night. I always get the chicken parm, because it's always delicious
Flowers by Elizabeth did the flowers for a wedding I went to last year. I was not involved in the planning so I cannot comment on how the service was or anything like that, but the final product was so good that I asked the bride's mother where the impressive arrangements were from.
Cohens is overpriced, and their salespeople seem distracted by the busy mall atmosphere. I bought glasses there last year and was not impressed- for a more personalized experience worth the price of designer eyewear, go to the Manalapan Epicenter- there's a store called Eyechic in the back corner that I have found to be better with service, price, and selection.
Millennium has been my regular eye care center for years, but they did not have luck treating a nasty infection that I had this year. I will continue to use them for yearly check ups, but for anything that seems serious i will immediately go elsewhere.
Unfortunately, I've been to Freehold Radiology a few times over the course of the last year. While being locked inside an MRI machine can't be described as fun, the staff at Freehold help by talking to you, letting you bring your own music, or just letting you sleep.
I had my wisdom teeth taken out here last year. Obviously getting four teeth taken out in one day is never a good time, but the staff made me feel comfortable, and I would not hesitate to return here should I need oral surgery again.
