“A Stong Recommendation”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

The Heldrich concierge recommended this restaurant and it was great. Excellent food, not over-priced and wait staff very attentive. There is a cute outdoor seating area if you are so inclined.

“Very good food - service not so much...”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I recently hosted a business dinner at Stage Left and left feeling less than loving it. As expected the food was good, but the menu was unnecessarily confusing; which caused my European guests a problem until they understood that there are two different menus (explaining WHY was less easy). The wine steward was inattentive as was the waiter, but when the food arrived all of my guests pronounced their choices excellent - especially those that had the duck. It was pronounced the best they had ever had. A word about the wait staff - the lack of focus and inattentiveness was one thing but they were also condescending. This was a problem I had at the Frog and Peach before the new owners fixed that little problem. I am now back at the Frog regularly. Maybe the cultivation of this kind of culinary rarified air works for some diners - but it is off-putting to others. I for one will avoid Stage Left for a while until the restaurant gets its ego in check. Hey, it’s JUST FOOD. And this is New Brunswick, NJ not Balmoral.

“Good service, great food”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The food was cooked to perfection ( I had scallops and then steak). The staff were very attentive and kept filling my wine glass (who knows how much I drank?!). Dessert of bread pudding was yummy too.

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