Tasty....

The food here is excellent. It has something for everyone from fish, pasta, steak, sushi to wraps. The starters are a reasonable size but order 1 starter for 2 people. The service was a little slow, but the food made up for the slow service. Worth a visit and will go back if I'm passing again.

Went to check out the food since my daughter And her fiancée were looking for a place for their rehearsal dinner. The food was really good. There were 5 of us and we all picked something different and all had delicious meals. The service was 5 star! Very attentive and friendly! (Granted, it was not that busy for a Saturday... More

The menu reads like a diner since there are so many options, the food taste like fine dining though. They have good sushi, good italian, burger is pretty good, and good steaks. You really can't go wrong. Lunch portions are a tad small, but dinner portions are good size.

Near work this place is great for business lunch as well as happy hour after work. Menu is diverse and salads are always fresh and unique. Sushi offerings are surprisingly good for a restaurant that offers mostly American cuisine. Great atmosphere too, warm and cozy bar.

Found this place just driving by and almost missed it (signage can be improved upon especially by the rear parking lot) and wasn't sure it was a restaurant. Glad I turned around and went in. Nice bar with sushi station. Top shelf stuff and robust lunch menu. Had a separate Sushi Menu and most of the people at the bar... More

Kind of a diverse menu. I got 2 different sushi rolls. They were pretty good and definitely hit the spot. The restaurant itself is very nice with a bar area and tables. Service was good. HIghly recommend.

My husband and I were traveling back to south Jersey, from a long business trip. We saw the restaurant, and it looked inviting, so we went in, not knowing what to expect. The service was friendly, the menu was appetizing, and the atmosphere was comforting and relaxing. We ordered mussels marina, and little neck clams for appetizers.... OMG! Delicious! We... More

I have been on a Paleo like diet(no dairy, carbs, fat) and chef came out to speak with me about accommodations. I was very appreciative and impressed. I haven't stopped telling folks about the positive experience. I hope to be back later this month. Delicious, fresh food. Wonderful ambiance. Hard to hold a conversation over the noise when it's full.

I recently visited Ovations having never even been to South Bound Brook before. Not only was I impressed with the ambiance and upbeat, hip nature of the restaurant, but also with my service and food. Bartenders were very attentive and always had an eye on my dates drink as well as mine. I asked for the specials and the female... 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.
