The place very spacey. Bathroom dreadful, should have been cleaner. Restaurant waiting area neat. I love the space! I ordered a burger, wings, and l 3 salads for the vegetarians in my Fam :)The salad is totally over priced. Caesar salad that does not include tomatoes only lettuce, light cheese, croutons. I could have bought that at raceway. The salads... More

Decent coffee, horrible amateur service. The typical diner menu is not to be found here. Upscale Boston menu similar to L.A. Quality of the food is ok. $14.45 for turkey club and coffee. The menu choices are limited. Disappointed they have abandoned the old school N J Diner format. Decor is airport kitch .

Been in the Edison area all my life, and never went here, but kept being told how great it was. Well, after 44 years of my life, I finally went, and was not disappointed. Like an upscale Diner experience if you want to call it that. Food was really good, and fresh, and atmosphere was great too. The wait staff... More

Imagine 30 years in the future, people try to present an authentic, diner experience, for nostalgic reasons. The only problem? They never experienced a real, traditional diner, they just read about them, in history articles, on their e-readers. It might be like something out of the movie, "Demolition Man." That's how the Skylark feels. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. Everything... More

I've taken clients to the Skylark for lunch, and have never been disappointed. It's a great casual setting to do business. The wraps and burgers are always fresh. The bread they serve to start off the meal is amazing and you can buy it to take home. Portions are also excellent for the price. One day, my wife and I... More

They always have great food on the menu here. We have eaten here many times. Not typical diner food. The short ribs that I had were extremely soft, Much better than at some more expensive places. They serve a very good raisin baguette to start your meal. My wife had a pumpkin ravioli that was very good. We have been... More

I have eaten at this gem many times, mostly for Brunch. It is a full service restaurant with a liquor license, so it is not your typical NJ diner. I've mainly had the omelettes, and they are superb. A real French omelette, fluffy and delightful. My friends have had meals from the dinner menu, and everyone has been satisfied. A... More

This was our second visit to Skylark. Lunch was delicious. My turkey burger was freshly made and served with a choice of fries or salad. We returned for dinner. I had 5 spice salmon. It was a generous portion with a vegetable medley and rice. A homemade warm bread was served with the meal. My husband was happy with his... More
