“Keep trying. You can do better”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

The service was absolutely aweful. Drink orders forgotten, instructions not followed, speacials not mentioned...amature hour! While appetizers were good, main couses were at best a simularcum of good restaurant food.

“Pleasant dining and good value in Wash Twp / Oradell”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

I had dinner at the Bacari Grill last night while on business in nearby Oradell. We were a group of eight having completed two full days of meetings together. Our hosts recommended this place and I am very happy they did.

The restaurant bills itself as serving eclectic American dishes; however, it impressed me as having an Italian edge, though evidently Greeks run it. I ordered a couple glasses of viognier and was pleased with the wine. We had antipasti of shaved Italian meats, bruischetta, some pita with olive oil and fried calamari. I ordered an entree of risotto and scallops with a beet puree garnish around the edges. It was excellent. My share of the bill was $50, which I found outstanding value for this part of suburban New York City.

The restaurant is located in a pretty residential area in what apparently was an old, rambling house that served as the concession area, changing rooms and picnic area for a public swimming hole that was located on the site for many decades. (Our host grew up in the area and told us that his father used to swim there.) The house is sprawling and beautiful. It has been renovated with an open plan, skylights and a warm, ochre paint on the walls. We sat at a long table in the corner that looks out across a nicely landscaped, sloping lawn onto the intersection of two busy roads. Despite the traffic the large, floor-to-ceiling, double-glazed windows prevented any noise from getting through. We ate at dusk and the light combined with the high ceilings and skylights to furnish a pleasant atmosphere for us.

The waiters were knowledgeable, polished and unobtrusive. I left the restaurant extremely pleased with the evening.
