Someone recommended this as "one of the best". We were nicely greeted. We had the menu very well explained. We chose some of the mussels that were also highly touted. We thought we had finally found a restaurant that we could recommend to everyone and anyone. Not meant to be "French" but that was OK, it was very very good.... More

For a business dinner, my host eagerly recommended A Toute Heure. He had had one of the best meals he'd ever had, then some good meals and a great meals, so the jury wad out.

Cozy little place in Cranford, that Is in a part of town I never go past. What a find, thanks to a gift certificate we received. The vegetables come from their own garden or hot house in winter. As a result, the salads and dinner vegetables are the freshest you will get anywhere. The skirt steak is thick, JUICY and... More

Make your reservations soon. This small restaurant is delivering incredibly creative fresh foods. A menu that changes monthly to accommodate having the freshest ingredients, included tonight crostini w/chicken liver pate, sauteed leeks, roasted goat with squash ravioli, apple cake with cinnamon ice cream, etc. Include the standard brioche rolls with salt and a BYO policy, and this becomes a destination...

I have to say, in the 7-10 times I have had dinner at "A Toute Heure" I have never had a bad plate, let alone a bad meal. From the amazing warm bread and homemade butter to the outstanding apps and entrees, this is BY FAR the best restaurant for miles and miles in any direction. I first went here... More

Excellent meal and ambiance perfect for an adult evening or special occasion away from kids. Do prepare and bring your own alcohol.
