Such ashame when this Restaurant /diner opened up it had such promise. ... their menu was exciting and innovative. With that being said, they definitely lost sight of what they had originally intended. Bring back the good that you offered when you first opened. I could go to any diner for what I ordered. . Not worth mentioning

The Skylark Diner offers quite a lengthy all-day breakfast menu. I ordered one of their omelets and asked if it could be made with egg whites and no cheese. I was told that was no problem. A lovely breakfast was delivered a short while later. If you are hungry for breakfast, this is a good place to come.

have eaten both breakfast and lunch here on numerous occasions. good solid food, once in a while they get creative but nothing that really hits it out of the park. - I don't have a menu 'favorite' that compels me to return. don't get me wrong, great food, great staff,,usually very attentive and predictable.

This is what I call an upscale diner with a broad, moderately priced menu and very good service. My family eats brunch here monthly. The food is prepared properly and the portions are just right. For those dining later in the day, this diner also serves a range of alcoholic beverages; an interesting twist for a diner.

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
