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.

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

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
