My partner and I go here for special occasions and take family here when they are in town visiting. Everything has been good here, especially loved the pork chop. Prices are on the high side for Metuchen, but value is there for a special occasion.

George our waiter is part owner of the restaurant. I do it know if they can do that but you can ask George. He is a very nice person.
