Above Restaurant and Bar
South Orange gemFive of us went for lunch on Mother's Day, 2013. To start, we ordered a bottle of Norton Torrontes, 2009, a nice, fruity Argentinian white wine (very resonably priced at $28). For appetizers we ordered Artichoke & Spinach Dip: Creamed Spinach, Artichoke, Melted Gruyere, served with pita triangles ($9), and meat empanadas served with pico de gallo ($9). I ordered a Chicken Baguette ($12). My mom and son ordered meat loaf ($14), my son's fiancee ordered a grilled veggie wrap ($10), and my wife ordered the lobster mac and cheese ($14). Everyone was pleased, except my mom, who said the bbq sauce was too spicy for her. All in all, it was a very pleasant time. We have been here before, and it is consistently good. Highly recommended.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with friendsWe brought our friends from Montclair where they have access to many lovely restaurants. They hadn't been in South Orange for years. They were delighted with the food, impressed with the service and the decor. We came at 6:30 so the crowd didn't start arriving until we were on our dessert. I'm sure they will return --- and so will we!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a rare type of restaurant.....what a rare type of restaurant.....second floor above a market !

Looking forward to a special occasion to head back4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had girls night at AboveWe had girls night at Above celebrating our friend's birthday, and our whole experience was excellent! The food was delicious, portions were large but not overwhelming, and our server (zack) was fantastic! Only disappointment was that we were told we couldn't order the sea scallops dish, even though they had all of the components available to order separately. Strange. Either way, it was a great evening and I will definitely be back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service, knowledgeableExcellent Service, knowledgeable waiter, nice ambiance. Great food.
