“Great Restaurant in Cranford”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Great local restaurant. Food is always fresh and delicious. Menu is not huge. Great fish options. The space is small and tight. It is tough to get a reservation. Meal will not disappoint. Service is very good too. Enjoy!!!

“Fantastic meal and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Let me start off by stating I have passed this restaurant hundreds of times and never understood why it was always so busy. I am now part of the club. My friend was turning 40 and this was THE place she wanted to go to (party of 4). We could only get 5:15 reservations which concerned me. Who wants to have dinner at 5:15 for their 40th? All I can say was this was amazing! The entire experience! The 5:15 time was perfect as it is a very specialized restaurant and not your typical place or meal. The staff and owner makes you feel like you are the only patrons in the restaurant. The special attention towards us and the amazing quality of food and presentation. The food was incredible (we also had apps and dessert). By the time we left it was 8:30 and we were beyond pleased and will return to this restaurant! I suggest you call and make that reservation, it is worth the trip. Plus it is BYOB :)

“Always very good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a reliably very good restaurant. The food is locally sourced. I love that. All of the dishes are inventive yet not over prepared like some restaurants. You can't go wrong here. Go early if you can it can get a little loud later in the evening,

“love it”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

hands down, my favorite place to eat...down side, it has ruined me! everyplace else is secound rate...if u want delightful mouthfuls of fresh foods touched with herbs, aioli, exquisite but simple sauces, this is your place. the decor is simple, sophisticated; country wood floors, white tables/chairs, airy windows and candles. the servers are great. the food, atmosphere, rare.
glitch in rate bars wouldnt let me give a five circle excellent!

“A gem in Cranford”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

A Toute Heure is a local favorite for us. Farm to table fresh ingredients with inspired preparations. It's small and cozy, sometimes a bit noisy. It is a bit pricey, but always pleases.
