A word from Estreia
At Estreia, gourmet dining is defined by exceptional flavors and inspired techniques artfully executed by our chefs.

As a reasonably-skilled amateur
chef, I had been anxiously awaiting an opportunity to try Estreia, about which I had heard very favorable comments. My wife and granddaughter and I all enjoyed our dinner. We ordered several selections, all of which were well prepared, beautifully presented, and -- wonder of wonders for a strictly-kosher establishment, properly cooked. For once, a rare steak was truly rare, crisp duck actually had a crisp skin, and the sweetbreads were succulent, not over-sauced, and not dried out. My wife commented in the excellence of the dressing on her salad. The only off-note was the cheesecake, which seemed to have been prepared off-premises, and was not utterly outstanding. Expensive, but well worth it!"

The food was good but one meal was
heavy for one of us ,Cornish hen with beans"

Our food wasn't good. We were
looking forward to a great steak but it was tasteless and very chewy"

Food was superb as always, but
they need to turn down the AC. New drinks menu is a work in progress-looking forward to seeing what they come up with as the current mixed drink menu is sparse."

abundant. The wine selection was excellent"

Searching for high-end kosher
cuisine in Central NJ? Here it is. Loved every. single. dish. Make sure to try their sweetbreads, carpaccio, Tomahawk steak, and Tartar."

Loved the service and the
attention the staff paid to my food allergies - they brought out the chef to make sure no mistakes were made and I appreciated that! One weird thing was that I wanted to order the Chef's special and was told they were out of it.... then as I was finishing my absolutely delicious second choice, I heard a waiter serving the special to a nearby table.... wasn't sure what to make of that."

Passing through Lakewood we
decided to stop for dinner @ Estereia. It was super!! You won't be disappointed."

Overall we had a great time. The
menu had a lot of options and the food was good. I didn't like that the door was open to the lobby - and the outside door kept opening because of another event in the building, so there was a lot of people coming in, which made the restaurant too cold. We asked for the door to be closed, but the manager said it needs to stay open."

There are not many good privately
owned restaurants in Lakewood. Estreia is a standout. Food was fantastic and service was wonderful. My filet mignon was every bit as good as my experiences in NY and Chicago. One minor item to be prepared for, it is a Kosher restaurant. My guest and I were the only patrons not wearing a yarmulke (pronounced yamaka). This didn't bother us and we were treated extremely well. I would not hesitate going back but it is a bit obvious when you enter the restaurant."

Estreia is the first kosher
restaurant in Lakewood, NJ to meet the high fine dining standards set by the very best kosher restaurants (and non-kosher restaurants) in NYC. Actually, there are a number of dishes that I have eaten there that are noticeably better than comparable dishes that I have been served anywhere else (sweetbreads, skirt steak, green apple sorbet). The food is exceedingly well prepared and elegantly presented. The menu tends toward classic American dishes with foreign touches, but there is always some creative twist. The wine list is extensive. The wait staff is attentive, polished and charming. The prices are high, but the food and experience are well worth it."

Estreia has done a great job
bringing "Manhattan style" kosher dining to Lakewood. Service was excellent, and food was terrific. Our party had Salmon, Boneless Ribeye, a Steak Salad, and the Tomahawk steak. Food was prepared well and the steaks were exactly as requested (Medium/Rare & Medium/Well). The Tomahawk steak was incredible! We wanted to order soup, but didnt' see any on the menu. We should have asked as we saw a server bringing out soup to another table. Salads can be challenging for a glatt kosher restaurant, but are doable. The Butternut Squash salad was ok, but not to the level of the rest of the offerings. Some creative focus on the salad side of the menu would be well placed. A great time and will definitely return!"

Lakewood, welcome to the big
leagues! As good a dining experience as any of the exclusive Manhattan restaurants."

This place is as close as you get
to the city in terms of ambiance, food (and prices!). I had the misfortune of being there on a busy night, so the chef was seemingly strained. It was disappointing that after I placed my order I was told one of the items wasn't available, and the waitress twice seemed to have forgotten to include my special requests in my order. The boneless rib eye and the pomegranate chicken that my wife ordered were both very good, and the waitress went out of her way to accomodate. (I would have liked more flavorful options on the menu e.g. pepper crusted/marinated meats etc). Price was closer to city prices but I found it still slightly cheaper. Overall nice experience, I would definitely return when I go local again!"

My children live in Lakewood. I am
always looking for a "SPECIAL" place to celebrate special occasions without going into NYC. Lakewood finally has that place!! Estreia !!! This IS a NYC quality establishment from menu, wine list,ambiance and price. Very often when dining in kosher restaurants I feel cramped. Estreia was a very comfortable place to dine. Our server Heidi was top notch. for the next special occasion there is no doubt where I will celebrate. ESTREIA!!!"

Nice ambiance, attentive and
professional waiters, and delicious food. The meats were succulent and perfectly done. (Nice touch with the "Estreia" chocolates given along with the check!)"

We really enjoyed Estreia! The
food was excellent and the ambiance was better than any fancy restaurant I have been to in NY. I am so excited that I don't have to travel to celebrate a birthday or anniversary with my husband."

Steak and duck were excellent
(could've used a little more flavor though), ambience was classy. Was easy to get waiter's attention, and they were very friendly and helpful. Disappointed that only one side comes with main course- comparable establishments offer two. Also thought it comical that they want you to give an 'additional tip' on the bill after they charge 18% gratuity automatically."

Was the ideal place to celebrate
our Tenth wedding anniversary. Great attentive wait staff and rather quick service. Most importantly, the food was delicious. We each had different cuts of steak along with scrumptious spring rolls and a tasty dessert."

My husband and I were very
impressed with Estreia. The food was impeccable; the atmosphere was very upscale and romantic. My husband got the Rib Eye and was in heaven!!"
