David, I am so sorry you weren't happy with your seating arrangements when you were in last. We're not sure what night you were in, but it sounds like we may have been reserved for a private affair. When this happens, we seat other guests with no table preferences outside. I'm so sorry this wasn't more clearly communicated when you... More

We gathered in the club room upstairs for drinks, small plate appetizers and dinner. Food was delicious and Waite staff was amazing. There was an open bar, but choice of drinks were limited.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed the drinks and food, but it's a shame that the room was either too hold or too cold for you. We typically regulate our heating and A/C system regularly, so it sounds like you might've visited us on an off-day, and we apologize for that. We hope you can make it in for... More

This restaurant is so beautifully decorated and the table layout is great. Menu is quite extensive and the food is superb. Wine list a bit pricey. Would certainly recommend to friends.

Menu choices are different than the usual NJ (Italian) restaurant fare and they were pretty good, just not excellent. The Trout was nicely displayed, but over-cooked, escargot were in an insipid oil, not butter nor garlic flavored. The chicken was pretty good, over nicely seasoned mashed, more like pureed potatoes. Service was excellent. Angel was attentive, polite and helpful. The... More
