Wife and I celebrated our anniversary here because we wanted a BYOB with good food. Second anniversary in a row here and I have had some lunches here during the year. Friendly and attentive service any time I am there. I had braised short ribs dish which was filling because of the rich (a little too salty) gravy and great real mash potatoes. My wife had the grilled pork chop which was excellent. The Prickly Pear salad dressing is great on the salad provided. Dishes may be priced up $2-$3, but the ability to bring your own wine more than makes up for that. Menu is not that expansive, but i'm sure they would alter certain preparations of dishes. This is a place we will re-visit from time to time.

I hadn't been here for some time after our very first visit when they first opened. The last time we had a really good meal and tonight was the same. We may need to ocme here more often. My paella was moist and tasty, altohugh I didn't think the beef fillet really made sense here. More chozio would have been better or a mussel or two, which were on the specials list. My wife's hanger steak was good as well. No room for dessert.

Yes it is true. Somehow this chef decided to open in a strip mall in Hackettstown. There is great attention to detail in all the meals prepared here. The portion sizes are large and the service is friendly. BYOB with a bottle store a few steps away. A good solid meal consistently.
