Bartenders were very attentive and always had an eye on my dates drink as well as mine. I asked for... read more

Seems to just be a hang out for friends of the restaurant. Online menu said they had sushi, then they had no sushi menu when we arrived. Place has very few people at the peak of dinner time so maybe that gave away the quality.

Had a great dinner with an attentive staff. Had sushi for an appetizer, out of control roll, Godzilla roll. Enjoyed the chicken, mussels, crabmeat, and chicken with angel hair pasta. Had a great kick to it with spices, it was delicious. A friend had a chicken salad, one had the butterflied pork chops and had rave reviews. Too full for... More

Heard from a friend some time ago that this was a nice place. Finally went, for the occasion of a coworker's birthday, going with a group of 7 from the office for lunch. The outside is inviting, the inside decor is very nice. There is a big bar area that seems to separate two dining areas that I saw. The... More

I was very surprised with the selection of wines along with a great cocktail lounge. During dinner the menu had a wide range of great selections. The food was fantastic.

Ovations is an great restaurant in Bound Brook, NJ. It is the best sushi we have ever had and the chef, Jimmy, will come to your table to review the specials and he can create a meal that is especially designed for your tastes. At night, the restaurant is dark and romantic, a great place for a date night or... More
