    The service was poor with approx 12 tables it should be excellent. For whatever reason, it is so loud in there you can barely hear each other. I felt as if I was at a loud bar trying to have dinner vs a restaurant that somehow got great reviews. The entrees where good nothing so great that I would refer a friend. We were overall disappointed considering other reviews we read about the restaurant. If they want to be a 5 star restaurant they should play the part - the host should wear something other than a hoodie & converse sneakers & the wait staff shouldn't be wearing aprons. It made me think they were prepping meals & serving too....maybe that's what they were doing...lol.

    Menu was medium (not too many things listed)...was afraid at first about ordering (all of the listings were so different than my regular places...where the food is more "standard"...these had different combinations of items, which I had never tried before). But all was very good...liked everything that I had...and so did the others at the table (and we all ordered different things). Definitely would go back. It's a BYOB, so that saves some money, but the prices were on the high side....but in my opinion worth it.

    Didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Place is a little small, but very quaint. We were there for restaurant week and the options of food choices were some of the usual menu items. My husband normally complains about the food, but this time he raved about the delicious, succulent game hen. Salmon was cooked just right and the pork tenderloin had a very unusual blueberry BBQ sauce, but good. Definitely would go back.

    We had an amazing dinner -- this place is tiny, so make a reservation, bring a bottle or wine, and get ready for some amazing food. Short menu, which I appreciate....they always have some seasonal specials too. I had a fall kale/peach salad, lightly dressed, perfect....Butternut squash lasagna special, I scraped everything off the plate. Husband had a pork loin dish with blueberry BBQ sauce....so interesting! Very nice service as well. It was a Saturday night so it was loud and bustling (which I enjoy, clearly everyone was enjoying themselves....). Mostly couples and a few tables of 4 & 6. Definitely recommend it!!!

    My husband and I went out for a date night here and absolutely loved the food, and found the service excellent. This is amoung the best food we've ever had in the area. We started with the pickled items and also ordered a couple of the oysters they had as a special. For entrees, I had the duck dish and my husband had the fish. We both loved each other's dishes as well. (PS if you forget to BYOB like we did, there is a liquor store across the street.) It is a small place - so we'll be going back with another couple or another date night (not a big party).

    First time at Grange this past weekend with my husband and another couple. Was very happy with the entire experience. Appetizers, entrees and desserts were delicious and prepared with care. Wait person even put a candle in a dessert for my husband's birthday. A very nice night had by all.

    We tried the fondue app, and that was really delicious. It came with apples, bread bites and salami and the combination was awesome. The four of us tried each other's entree and we all raved about tr next one and then the next one. Bottom line everything here is so damn good! The duck, the pork tenderloin and then hen, all exceptionally delicious and melted in our mouths. We brought our own wine. It was a good idea. Take your own, it's byo. To top all that off the staff (it was a three man show that night) were all so gracious and friendly and really made the experience even more enriching. It's worth the high price. Just go!

    Food and service are pretty good. The challenge is the fact that it's a very small restaurant with TERRIBLE acoustics. You can hardly hear yourself. Also, not sure there's too much of an atmosphere... That said, not a bad option if you want to stay local...

    The orchard salad with grilled peaches was something very different for me, excellent mixture. Smoked pork tenderloin with blueberry sauce and whipped sweet potatoes was fabulous. The honey glaze on the salmon was nice and not overwhelming, dijon sauce wasn't powerful enough. Ambiance is nice. But you have this surrounding wood framing giving a look of Americana and then bare walls with small framed pictures that look like someone's modern nyc apartment; that just didn't gel together. BYOLiquor reduces your bill, but the lack of soda was just odd. Very long wait times between dishes, didn't seem appropriate as the restaurant wasn't packed that night. Overall I liked my experience and the food, and I would return and recommend.

    Above average but some disappointing points lost on food quality because you just expect exceptional ... Our Blue Points were average at best and I thought the BBQ sauce lacked finesse... But the ambiance, service and overall food quality and preparation are well worth the visit. Not overpriced. We will be back. Excellent neighborhood place!

    The place was nice and the food was good... Just good. Nothing to rave about. I got the steak and I def had better steak. My husband had the salmon and he has had better from a local Greek place we go to. We didn't stay for dessert and all we wanted was to try it out because we heard great things about it. We probably won't be back.

    Located in downtown Westwood, NJ this restaurant is a great destination for a top notch meal in an intimate rustic setting. They categorize themselves as American comfort foods with a slight French twist. It is small with a few outdoor tables on the street but the service is attentive and accommodating. They don't have a liquor license so it is BYOB which actually worked out well. The owner is friendly and came by and talked to us. We had Angry Bass which was very tasty. The salads are large and big enough to share. We had beet & avocado salad and spinach salad. The menu is a bit pricey but well worth it. Not many dessert options. They offer one of NJ's top chefs. Highly recommend making a reservation. Would definitely go back again.

    This restaurant, like its portions, is petite yet full bodied. The simplicity of the rustic wood tables, floors, beams, and decor mirrors the limited menu in a positive way. The complimentary textures and pure tastes of the meal reflected the freshness found in both the creativity of the preparation and the presentation. We had the crab cakes, which although the size of a marshmallow, were delicious, firm and textured with a slight crunch. The salmon, presented with the added taste of fresh honey, was complimented served over a surprisingly grainy, nutty-tasting risotto and fresh asparagus. Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips came atop the bill - a sweet ending to a sweet meal. Slightly pricey, but thankfully a byob.

    Nice ambiance. Service was very poor. It took over 2 hours for our entrees and we weren't the only ones waiting. The couple next to us had also been waiting a very long time. We asked the server 4x over 30+ minutes where our food was and the answer was each time "they are plating it". Server never acknowledged the delay, only when we kept asking. Very poor service. Food was good but it's hard to really critique the food when over 1.5 hours has passed between starter and entree.

    Saturday night was our second visit. The food is outstanding -- in taste, presentation, and variety -- and very fairly priced. The best duck I have ever had (and I always try to order duck when I go out). My wife and I wanted to order everything on the menu! It is a small restaurant and the noise level did increase as the evening progressed and the restaurant filled up. We didn't care We absolutely would go back the next time we're in NJ

    Going back to a place you liked the first time can be disappointing. Not here. As good. If not better, than the first time. For such a small space, the kitchen and waitstaff are wizards in providing an excellent far above average dining experience in two informal seatings. Personally. I like the 2d. But you won't be disappointed!
