The Bamboo Grille is one of the best places for me and my wife to go out dine. I cannot say enough good words about this place. We are both from Jersey and we have gone to many places in our state, and this place ranks at the top for places to dine. The theme of place is indeed bamboo (bamboo poles, bamboo blinds, bamboo everything). It has 2 personalities...a day and a night one. If you go during the day, you get a breath taking view of the Basking Ridge Country Club Golf Course. If you don't enjoy this view, then there is something wrong. It is just gorgeous. At night, since it is dark out, you cannot see the course, and then it becomes a most romantic place go. This is where we go out on a date night. We love this place.
The food for me is difficult to judge and this is why: I keep ordering the exact same thing. I kid you not. I always order the crab cakes. I love crab cakes in general, and I have been to many, many places that make crab cakes. There is no place on the planet (and that includes Maryland!) that makes crab cakes better than this place. They are made in house (I asked the owner) so they are not some stupid frozen thing they bought pre-made from a supplier. I order a soup and everyone I have tried, I liked. Same goes for salads. My wife mixes it up and she loves everything she has ordered (and I have stolen a bite or 2 over the years and they are yummy).
So, if you are new to NJ or on biz, I recommend this place. It is located in the Basking Ridge Country Club on the first floor (enter on the right of the building and walk down the steps). The front entrance is the Club itself which does weddings, etc.
