Have been for multiple lunches over the past two years. Highly recommended. Today, my table enjoyed the mussels (with chorizo), the tuna melt and the flounder. All were outstanding.

A Toute Heure is really an amazing restaurant! I heard so many great things about this restaurant so I asked my husband to make me for my birthday. Beforehand, I looked at the menu and was somewhat leery because I did not recognize most of the dishes. The pairings here are very unique and unlike any I have ever seen... More

A'toute Heure is our favorite, raising the bar for Cranford's eateries. It's become the restaurant/go to that all others are judged by! Atmosphere is casual but smart, with open air feel. The service is great, and the owners are warm and welcoming. But it's the food that keeps us going back. It's a priceless gem right in our backyard!

Small, friendly and with some of the best food you will find in the area. The owners are super nice and everything is fresh. Sometimes it is tough to get a reservation. DO NOT MISS KARA'S MUSSELS!!!!

A surprise birthday dinner for me; my wife arrannged to have flowers on the table. Everything except my entree was exquisite, and they made every possible effort to make things right. I have never felt more valued and respected as a customer, and will certainly return. I wish them continued success !

A new favorite in our dining locally repertoire. An eclectic menu with unique combinations. Gifts from the sea as well as choices for carnivors. This BYOB excels with a talented chef, great plating,knowledgable staff and creative offerings. The house made parker house rolls and the house made ice creams are to die for. We'll be back despite the noise in... More

Great local restaurant. Food is always fresh and delicious. Menu is not huge. Great fish options. The space is small and tight. It is tough to get a reservation. Meal will not disappoint. Service is very good too. Enjoy!!!

Let me start off by stating I have passed this restaurant hundreds of times and never understood why it was always so busy. I am now part of the club. My friend was turning 40 and this was THE place she wanted to go to (party of 4). We could only get 5:15 reservations which concerned me. Who wants to... More

This is a reliably very good restaurant. The food is locally sourced. I love that. All of the dishes are inventive yet not over prepared like some restaurants. You can't go wrong here. Go early if you can it can get a little loud later in the evening,
