“AMAZING!!!!! Wine list is like a NYC 5 star”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

THe food, service, and wine list are second to none. If you closed your eyes you would think you are dining in a New York City 5 star or Paris. If you are anywhere near this restaurant you must visit, you will not be disappointed.

“Always at Home”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

From the first time we went (with our first child asleep in her carseat under the table) to the most recent time for a wine dinner with friends (sans kids) the experience has always been excellent!
The hosts & professional waitstaff are just that. You are treated like time honored guests as often as you visit from the first time and even if you missed several months!
The food is excellent with the finest ingredients from meat to fish and specials are imaginative.
The wine cellar is more than most can comprehend with acceptable mark-ups not blow you away pricing.
I wish I could eat here weekly, but unfortunately have to settle for special occasions & wine dinners. Well worth the first time trip if you live further away.

“Great, but not if you're a vegan!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Very good restaurant with fresh vegetables and bread basket on the table before you even order. Cozy and delicious. However, I called before taking my vegan guests for their birthday and was assured the menu could be altered. Our waiter was less than accommodating more like resistant to our desires. We got him to agree to prepare the risotto with olive oil instead of butter but then he served the coffees with whipped cream, ugh!! It was uncomfortable when this was a special occasion. But overall I would highly recommend as long as you have no dietary restrictions.

“Hidden Gem in a Residential North Jersey Neighborhood”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

Wanaque, NJ...have you heard of it? Is it Wah-nah-kee or Wanna-Que? No matter how you pronounce it, Berta's Chateau makes this tiny North Jersey town! With it's extraordinary Northern Italian cuisine and massive wine list (Barolo to die for!), this is, hands down one if my fave restaurants ever! The history dates back to 1925 as a residential home that was added on to for years. My husband and I love to dine in the bar room; dark and cozy away from the larger rooms that generally cater to large parties. Long time waiters, Peter and Joe complete the experience with their humor and exceptional service. Get on their email list to be contacted for wine tasting events throughout the year. Chef-Owner Peter Bernstein goes to great lengths to bring fresh and tasty vineyards to the table in which you can purchase bottles after dinner.

“Old School European restaurant”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Interesting menu with lots of fresh local and artisanal selections depending on the season. Good wine list. All moderately priced and a great crudite/bread selection comes with every table. My parents used to come here in the 60's... try the Shrimp AlaBerta!
