“Great Food! Great Service!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Every dish that I have had has been perfect. The service is friendly and everyone tries to accommodate any requests. The ambiance is nice especially when dining outside.

“Meet at the bar and stay for dinner”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This has become a favorite meeting place of ours at the end of our respective commutes and it is strategically located across from the South Orange, NJ train station.

There is a great bar and we usually end up staying for dinner as we enjoy a wide selection of interesting appetizers and entres which even includes sushi!

Both the bar and dinning rooms have outdoor seating which are good fun when weather permits.
