Had the burger and husband had steak. The burger was delicious, pricey but the best. Steak was cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend.

“Very good but expensive.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

It was very good. I had the coliflower soup which was very good. Also had the flat iron stake that you cook in front of you on a salt brick. It was very good.

“Unplanned and level matching replacement for a failed reservation”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had friends coming from Germany that we wanted to take to a "New American" restaurant i.e. "Daryl" but its door was closed when we showed up for our "Open Table" arranged reservation (surprise!). We walked a little further and there was "Stage Left" that welcomed the 4 of us right away. The decor was a little more "Classical" and the service of great quality.
Little observation about what I call a classical case of the "pusher server": I selected a bottle of wine and got immediately the feedback that for a similar price the other bottle was much better: only problem, the math did not match: 25% price increase.
This got me very attentive for the rest of the dinner: the Flat Iron steak was very much enjoyed by our guests while the dorade was really delicious to me.
Definitively, if you have to celebrate something in New Brunswick this is one of the places to go.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went here for Restaurant Week in New Brunswick, a great chance to try expensive places at a reasonable price. The whole meal was well executed from start to finish. There is also a beautiful outside cafe area to eat at.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The entrance belies what awaits you ....
Pricey restaurant...our bill came to $300 with a bottle of wine ($70) ,2 appetizers, 3 entrees & no dessert.
The wine-list weighs as much as an encyclopedia, with prices that go up to $2.000

The food & service are excellent.

1 for the ages.....
