Everything was outstanding, like a fine restaurant in a dive. Where's Guy Fieri? The environment is definitely homey and quirky. My wife never gets excited about pasta, and she could not stop eating the angel hair that came with the veal francese. I agreed that it was perfect. And for $17 including salad, quite a bargain. The flounder special was... More

I recently went to Washington Park Tavern for my 40th bday pregame celebration. Just a few drinks and some appetizers. I had the garlic shrimp and the stuffed mushrooms. Bon Appetit. The food was out of this world. I had a special invitation to view the kitchen and chef Anthony. He was outstanding. A fan forever.

Washington Park is definitely a hidden gem in Nutley. The food is delicious and the prices are great! This has been our "birthday" restaurant for a few years now, going there for each one of our family members birthday. I highly recommend it.

It is a great mom and pop run place. The food is outstanding. They have been there about 17 years and it is still Nutley's best kept secret.

I recently moved to Nutley & have had the food here 4 times already! Love this place! Even the homemade salad dressing is great! This is a true gem in Nutley! The owner, employees, & patrons are so nice. I felt right at home. I am looking forward to doing karaoke there this Saturday night. Lady J Ippolito

The food is excellent, and the patrons are great. This is place is the true Cheers of NJ. I had the Veal Marsala, and my friend had the Eggplant tower which was outstanding. The barmaids Dee, Carol, Connie, Anne Marie, Katrhy, and Donna were also great.

One mile up the street from WPT and missing out! This place is very unassuming on the outside and delicious and warm on the inside. The interior is simple but the food is amazing. I live down the street so this will be my new go to place. Our table had eggplant rollotini, rye crusted chicken, bass oreganata (caught within... More

Can't say enough about the food in this local bar/restaurant. All the dishes are prepared fresh and every day there are specials. Have never had a meal I didn't rave about. The first time you go to this establishment they make you feel like you are part of their family. This is by far my favorite restaurant in Nutley and... More
