Celebrated a friends birthday, so we were a group of 10. Service was average. Since it was a weeknite and not very busy, I feel the service should have been better. Stuffed Mushrooms and Fried Calamari were delicious for appy's. I had the poppy seed encrusted Tuna and requested it as rare as they allow. Although it was tasty, it... More

We had the unexpected night of our life at "Ovations" A combination culturally Italian Fusion and Sushi Restaurant. An excellent warm bar with bartenderesses and tenders, who know how to pour a draft and mix one hell of a drink. The food and Service clean, tasteful, personable, and scrumptious, combined with the Owners always on site ... with their eyes... More

I have been to Ovations many times as I work in the area - most recently last week. By far the best and most innovative Sushi selection I have had in this part of New Jersey - my favorite being the Mango roll. You can tell everything is fresh. When you ask for a glass of wine, the yactually give... More

Ovations has some interesting menu items. The salad I had was very good. They have a unusual dip for the bread. Their menu is a little high end but the atmosphere is loud and more a bar crowd then a dining experience. I am not a sushi person but there was a lot of people enjoying it.

Has a 1970s feel to it. Needs to be updated though I believe it has been but just missed the mark. Food is acceptable as is service. Priced high given the food and service levels.

I have been to Ovations to eat, but unfortunately have not gone back because of the pricing of the food. I just feel the restaurant is overpriced, but they did do a really good job at redoing the restaurant. I stopped in this past november, but of course it was closed for the weather.
