Our group of 20 tried this restaurant after a swim meet around 8 PM. The ambiance was nice with live music. Food was good but a bit pricey for a bistro with entries in the mid-$20 range. Wine by the glass was also super expensive at $15 each. The restaurant was not busy but we waited close to an hour... More

My egg plant parm was so soggy and greasy. I could not finish it and i had a slight stomach ache about an hour later. My husband loved the... More

This restaurant is a place we have gone to a few times. They are very nice. The food is good and they brew their own beer on site. They have daily specials along with their regular menu. Their soups are delicious as are the homemade pastas.

Driving home from North Jersey and locked up restaurants en route and this one came up... it did not disappoint. Truly above average meal at a good price point. We enjoyed the famous burger, eggplant park and spinach pie entrees. I have to say all three adult dinners were appropriately portioned, seasoned, and truly delicious. We had Marc as our... More

Had a business group of about 20 and they handled it fantastic! Great appetizers- bruschetta, shrimp, calamari, meatballs, Mac n cheese. And even better holiday cocktails. Will definitely be back with the family!

Kudos to our server for successfully handling our group of 15 for business program. She was polite and very derail orientated when it came to the coming of people. How she kept track of everything i have no idea. She even wrapped up fresh bread for my doggy bag :) Chicken parm was tender but crispy. Sauce was tangy and... More

We met some friends for lunch, it was our first time here since the new ownership (quite a while). I had a brat on a pretzel roll, chips and an octoberfest (they brew their own) OUTSTANDING!! My wife had the Harvest salad which she raved about the whole way home. Our only disappointment is that we don't live closer so... More
