good Foot, attentive service, no wine

Feedback on food was a little mixed, entrees were great, but appetizers (salads) in this case were not as described and very plebeian. to be fair to the restaurant when we gave some feedback they took one of the salads off of the bill. Nice atmosphere, not too quiet, not too loud and as... read more

Was hoping to have a relaxing 30th Anniversary dinner here. Instead of a quiet French restaurant we couldn't hear ourselves speak. Our experience was terrible...not only was it noisy, but the menu was very limited, the food was mediocre, and it was way overpriced. I understand the concept of paying for atmosphere. If there was some, I wouldn't have minded... More

If you are looking for a pampering and intimate farm-to-table experience, look no further. The staff will have you forgetting that you are not at an exclusive B&B - they are so warm and friendly. AND they know their food. My mouth was watering at their descriptions alone - and then the food was even better than they described. The... More

Snowy evening where the power went out for a little bit. Added to the romance and ambience of the evening. We walked in right as the power went back on, after affirming they were still open, so it didn't affect our experience as much. The diners who were already there thought it was wonderful and were having a great time.... More

My wife and I went here for dinner last night. It's a nice quaint small town gem. The food was outstanding. Many of the ingredients are from local vendors and farms and are fresh and delicious. The chefs definitely know what they are doing as the taste and presentation speaks for itself. Except to open your wallet but is well... More

Hands down one of my favorite restaurants in the Cranford area. I am a repeat customer and have never been disappointed with any dish during brunch, lunch or dinner! Recently my husband and I went for dinner for my birthday and I was intrigued by the rabbit dish (which I've never had before) and the staff was so helpful in... More

Charming little place with limited seating and a fantastic menu. The wait staff is friendly, laid back and very knowledgeable about the food. We arrived at 6 and had a reservation. By 7 the place was packed so if you go make sure you have a reservation. It is BYOB. The menu varies frequently depending on availability of fresh ingredients.... More

A Toute Heure lives up to its promise to serve everything fresh. The staff was very friendly (and kid-friendly) from the moment we walked in until we left the place. The ambience is crisp and charming. I particularly enjoyed their music selection as well. It's a great place to have in the neighborhood.
