A word from Ninety Acres
PLEASE CALL THE RESTAURANT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OUR BMF (TASTING MENU) EXPERIENCE
The Natirar Estate, a nearly 500-acre site atop the mountains of Peapack, is the home of Ninety Acres Culinary Center, which consists of a cooking and wine school, and a restaurant offering unique and exciting menus featuring produce and livestock fresh from the estate farm. The restaurant, along with our private party facilities, redefines what a quality dining experience can and should be. We offer an a la carte menu in our dining rooms, a light bar menu in our bar and lounge areas, and the "Bring Me Food" experience, our interpretation of the tasting menu concept, exclusively in our kitchen dining area.

  • "Another great evening at 90 Acres. We were there for a celebration and 90 Acres delivered. We all had the chefs tasting menu for the evening and everything was fresh, tasty and wonderfully plated. Portions were a perfect size for a 4 course meal. Several of us started with their poached egg app - it is amazing, a must have. The wine list is extensive but manageable and our sommelier was very helpful. Our servers were very good, service moved along nicely but never rushed or waiting. With the amazing ambiance and service, we can't wait to go back."

  • "One of the best restaurants in NJ for sure. Service, ambiance, food and the setting make this a great restaurant for a special occasion"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The first time eating here, we just walked in. We were surprised to find such great restaurant with great food accidentally. This time around, it was for my wife's birthday. Let me just sum everything up in two words "even better". Firstly, due to traffic and road closures, we arrived 30 minutes late (our reservation was at 5:30pm). However the restaurant was quite understanding and didn't fuss about the delay. Secondly, the service was superb, both professional and courteous. Thirdly, it was the great tasting food. My wife ordered a 8oz Waygu stake, and she said it was the best tasting stake she has eaten! The classic Chicken Pot Pie I tried was also very delicious."

  • "for our wedding anniversary we chose Ninety Acres. It did not disappoint. We had a wonderful time. The food (a La Carte) was delicious. The service great. We are sure to comeback again"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The scenery is spectacular. Being there in the summer to enjoy the terrace bar and then dine outside near one of the fire pits was incredible. The interior rooms are beautiful & varied as well. The offerings are diverse & the menu prices are not unreasonable nor unexpected. The food was great - next time we may just make a meal of appetizers as those are our favorites. There was definitely a staffing issue when we were there & we went long spells without seeing our (or any other) server) - even when we approached the outdoor bar."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "My husband and I had the price fixe menu for our first visit. It was a wonderful choice as it gave us the opportunity to taste outstanding food paired with wines that we otherwise would not have had a chance to taste. The service was informed and professional."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Everything from the drive up to the restaurant to dessert was lovely. The staff is attentive to a fault and we would have enjoyed a bit less fuss made over us, but most people would likely enjoy the attention. The food was really lovely...not overblown, but subtle perfection. It is certainly a special occasion place for most. We shared some apps, each had an entree selection, coffee, some desserts and 1-2 drinks each. The tab, with tax and tip was just over $100 a head. Their prix fixe with drinks is $100 per person pre-tip and tax. It is a lovely and special place."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday with a delicious meal that was beautifully presented. It is the perfect place to commemorate a special occasion. The surrounding park land makes the drive up to the restaurant surreal! It was definately a memorable evening!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated my birthday here and agreed that it was one of the best dining experiences ever. The setting is magical and magnificent; it was hard to leave the beauty of the restaurant, outdoor patios and lush estate grounds. Our wine and cocktails were exceptional. The wine list is tremendous and the sommelier was helpful but in no way intrusive. Every staff person was friendly and helpful and made us feel special. Each one of them seemed passionate about what they do. The tasting menu is filled with the freshest most flavorful locally grown vegetables and clean fish and meats and the herbs and spices and food combinations melted in our mouths at every course. The chef is a genius;I highly recommend this culinary treasure."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We chose to have dinner at Ninety Acres because we were attracted by the farm menu. However, the appetizer of fresh heirloom tomatoes was wonderful. Rarely do tomatoes have the burst of ripe flavor that this serving had. The fried chicken was crisp and juicy. For dessert we chose the cheese sampler. It was wonderful, the cheese itself had great flavor and each was paired with just the right flavor and texture to enhance the cheese. The meal was delightful. The staff recognized us and were very welocoming."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We ended up in the area of the kitchen and after some modest arm twisting, the group decided to go for the 8 course Bring Me Food (BMF) option. What a wonderful treat!! Delicious, fresh, interesting, combinations - many made from food sourced from local farms. We all agreed that the food and the ambiance could compare to some of the places in Europe. Service was good (better than our last visit - we went al a carte), but not yet 100%."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Ninety Acres is a splendid dining venue; replete with scenic countryside views, warm inviting interior, and attentive servers. The food was artistically plated and scrumptious. Wine was superb as well. The prices were quite high though which we expected at such a wonderful restaurant."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Great location, unusual and hard to find food choices, and exceptional service. We enjoyed our first visit and will return to celebrate other major events. Exceptional experience but pricing will keep it in the special events tier."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "After attending several of the cooking classes, we had our first dining experience at 90 acres. It surpassed our expectations! The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive. We even stopped at the farm stand and brought home some vegetables."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Such a good meal. Satisfying blend of flavors; scallops and short rib cooked to perfection. Fresh veggies from the garden. Servers attentive and unobtrusive. Comfortable, relaxing ambience."

  • "A stunning nite, outside having a cocktail was the right start to a wonderful high school reunion with a friend"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Everything was top notch. From the food to the service, it was a wonderful meal. The yellowfin tuna and cavatelli appetizers were great. My wife had the tilefish while I had the strip steak for our main course. Both were prepared to perfection. A wonderful evening."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I have gone to this restaurant for several business meetings and loved the decor and atmosphere. The food was ok but wanted to see what it was like to dine privately instead of having food brought to a meeting. Well I have to say the service was great. Waiter attentive. Food came out hot and there was a lot to choose from. I thought there was more hype than substance before I ate there.. But it was great... I woujld go there again and already made reservations... It is hard to get a reservation so plan ahead...."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "From the appetizer, salad, to the entree this was a great disappointment. On the menu the ingredients in each dish we ordered sounded wonderful. However, the chef who put these dishes together was way off the mark. Example: Pizza app with salami, etc. It was overwhelmed with salami, extremely salty, with all of the other ingredient flavors not discernible. A mixed lettuce salad was swimming in it's dressing. And a pasta dish of ricotta cavitelli, with pancetta, was inundated with the pork flavor."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "This was our first visit to 90 Acres, and we will definitely return. Food, service, decor etc -- all first class."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The food here is like nothing I've ever had before. Everything is fresh and extremely well made. Most delicious meal I've had eaten."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary at Ninety Acres and we both really loved it. The setting is stunning, as the restaurant (an old carriage house) sits on beautiful, sprawling land. The service was great, the atmosphere was upscale, modern & rustic, without being stuffy and the food was incredible. I had the roasted Griggstown chicken and my husband had steak. We split the mashed potatoes. Everything was cooked, seasoned and presented beautifully. A very satisfying, delicious meal. And dessert was epic! I loved the sweet & salty sundae, I'd read about it in Food Network Magazine a year ago, and it was worth the wait to try! We will certainly go back to celebrate another special occasion in the future."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The restaurant is great for special occasions. Our waiter was friendly and well versed on all the wines we inquired about and offered a taste of each so we could make a decision. On past visits I declined the desserts as I felt they fell short, however, the last three times I dined at Ninety Acres and tried the new desserts, the desserts were outstanding. Very friendly staff."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Ninety Acres offers impeccable food that is seasonable, creative, and perfectly executed. While it is rare enough to enjoy an exquisite multi-course meal, it is even more rare when the quality of food and drink are paired with fantastic service. You can tell that those who work here are proud to work here , and they are joyful about serving you. Truly a delight~"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Uneven service , very loud restaurant , food very good , best part of evening was the scenic drive to the restaurant . Restaurant needs a lot of fine tuning and some sound proofing before we come back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "First time at Ninety Acres, food was amazing and service was great! I would definitley recommend sitting outside for a drink before or after dinner, the atmosphere is pretty and very relaxing. Overall experience was amazing!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Everything is so enjoyable- starting with the long winding drive to the restaurant and plenty of places to wait until the table is ready. It is odd that the a la carte menu is not brought until some time after the prix fixe menu, so diners can't compare and make a faster decision. The food descriptions are such that you can never be quite sure what the dish will be like, but it never disappoints. The staff doesn't try to upsell on the wine, which is refreshing. My last 2 visits have allowed enjoyment of the patio area as well- very nice!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Everything was top-notch and exceeded expectations"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Every time we eat here I feel like I've gone on vacation for the evening. The scenic & winding entry through a beautiful lush park slowly helps me leave behind the worries of the day and I feel a bit of excitement anticipating the wonderful experience awaiting us! The grounds are breathtaking and the food is always a delight. Everything is fresh & a lot is grown locally. There is an extensive wine list fit for even the choosiest patron. The venue is also fabulous for small weddings and special events. You can't go wrong. My favorite restaurant in NJ! If I have anything bad to say its that it is hard to get a reservation so plan ahead. It's worth it!"

  • "The ambience is really classy yet comfortable, the food was heavenly, and the staff were very accommodating. The cucumber gimlet was deliciously fresh, the wagyu sirloin astounding. A special shoutout to Jackie and Ryan for great service! I've been looking for that Whistle Pig rye Ryan recommended, but no luck just yet. This place is so awesome I could use hashtags. #awesome"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We only go to Ninety Acres a couple of times per year and are never disappointed. The atmosphere, service, friendliness and most importantly food are always excellent. Sometime the menu choices are a bit limited. For example there was a nice sirloin steak but should have been a filet which is a far superior cut. Seeing this is the most negative thing I can think of, it tells volumes as to how great the experience was."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Simply stunning from the food to the setting. We love this place to dine alone, go with couples or bring our family. Wonderful experience at the cooking school too. Hope to bring a group to reserve the private glass dining room."
