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.

Diner Reviews
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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 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!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I didn't feel that this restaurant was one of the best in NJ. The grounds are beautiful and the service was very good. The food was average. I won't go back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Went with 5 ladies and we were all impressed with the fabulous cocktails, excellent service, delicious food and perfect ambiance! Try their play on surf and turf - short ribs and scallops!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Ninety Acres is the perfect spot for a fabulous dinner enjoyed in a beautiful outdoor setting. Although there is limited outdoor seating, we were lucky enough to get a table (first come, first served). The weather was perfect and the food delicious. An evening to remember. Note: We have eaten here in the winter also. The restaurant is lovely, but that experience doesn't compare to the ambiance of the outdoors."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Unfortunately, again, the food was very bland. The level of attention one gets from the servers cannot be faulted. We have been many times for cocktails and enjoy our evenings. The Manager did deduct the price off our bill for the three meals that were not eaten. He also deducted the price of a bottle of wine we had ordered but sadly the whole experience was soured by the bland food. This is the second time we have been to Natirar for a special occasion and both times now group members have been unhappy with their food. The first time we did not say anything. Sadly we will not be back - there are other very good restaurants within the area and as we live very locally, we will be choosing to use them in the future."

  • "Ambience was great, the food not so good. Service was good. The drive through the park is beautiful."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "If you expect little; you may not be disappointed. You arrive at a Ninety Acres and are immediately impressed. The lovely well kept estate is so beautifully and meticulous maintained that you assume you are in for a treat. Sorry, you should not have raised your hopes. Everything is mediocre or less. We ordered and waited an ok time for our appetizers. Oops one of the guests was not served. After fixing that...oops the salad was overdressed and limp; the pate less than so-so..oops they forgot the toast points..fix that and move on. The entree...oops less satisfying the the appetizers. Skip the deserts and bring everyone home for coffee and deserts. Wait - the check...why does this cost more than my local diner"

  • "Food was incredible. Presentation and taste. Views are beautiful. Terrific experiencw"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "From the moment of arrival to our dining and then our goodbyes, it was simply marvelous. The entrees and wines and deserts are nothing less than exquisite. The service is the best I've ever had. The location is bucolic yet elegant and enchanting."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Awesome dining experience. Save it for a very romantic or special occasion. Menu is different but very enjoyable. Wine list is very expensive."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This was our second dinner. The scallop and short rib dish was outstanding and rich. The octopus was overcooked. The balsamic taste overwhelmed the polenta. The mashed potatoes are to die for. The service at the bar was efficient except a beer which had "to be brought from the back" took longer than it should. The female bartenders were professional but not friendly. We requested an additional glass of wine but that never came. One of our desserts never showed up until we mentioned it. We appreciated the removing of the charge for the other dessert as compensation. I also inquired about the vegetarian option but all I was told was that it was whatever is available (that was not helpful). All in all the food was good but..."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "A great place to go for that special occasion. Food is very good but not great but really this is a dining experience. Service is absolutely outstanding. A bit on the pricey side but the whole package justifies it for that memorable event."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "From the moment I pulled up in front of the restaurant until I walked out was a fabulous experience. It was pouring rain and the valet was at my car door with an umbrella that I could walk all the way into the restaurant. Due to the weather, one member of our party was running very late. The staff was wonderful in accommodating our party to only 2 for dinner, but 3 for dessert. Sommelier Drew was friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. Food was amazing, accommodating some special requests from the table. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. As I drove away, I was thinking of when and with who I could come again."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Enjoyed cocktails on the patio even tho it was over 90 degrees. A sofa in the shade was great. Disappointed that there were no blue cheese stuffed olives and no stoli vodka. Dining room was packed, excellent business on a Tuesday night, each couple shared a starter, one arugula salad with farrow and blue cheese and a risotto with squash blossoms. All had the farmer special of fried chicken which was excellent. Our waiter left I guess while we were eating our chicken.. Seemed no one then to handle dessert, coffee or bringing the check."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "I cannot wait to come back! The food is fabulous!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "I cannot say enough about Ninety Acres. Hidden in the hills of Peapack-Gladstone, one is greeted with a beautiful view when driving to the location. Upon arrival, the friendly and professional staff are very welcoming and have extensive knowledge of the menu and wine lists. The food we ordered(I had the rib-eye, wife had scallops) was cooked to perfection and the diverse menu should keep people coming back for more."

  • "great destination place to eat for a special occassion; ours being 35th anniversary."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The food felt like I was in Paris or New York City, but the ambiance felt as if I were in Las Vegas. Our waitress was moderately interested in serving us. The sommelier was the highlight. We wished we had known about the tasting room before hand, but our dinner was good. The beet salad the best I've ever had. The pan fried quail was crispy yet juicy. My wife's rigatoni was mediocre."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We chose the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Perfect amount of food. The dishes were prepared beautifully and presented very well. The wines were perfectly acceptable and went well with the food, although they were not remarkable. We thought the pricing was very fair. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "This is our special occasion restaurant - the menu is eclectic with many different delicious choices (so hard to choose). The entire staff is accommodating, attentive and very knowledgeable. We usually try something different each time, but do love the scallops and steaks. It's the freshness, unique tastes and service that keep us coming back. Just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary there and couldn't be more pleased. We were presented with free truffles for dessert - rich and yummy. It's a little pricey, but well worth. We will be back for our birthdays - well done, Ninety Acres! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience once again."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Food was great. Service was terrible. Our waiter introduced himself and then disappeared for the rest of the night as he attended to a large, noisy table in another part of the room. The other sub-waiters were mostly absent as well. Sommelier was very helpful, not only with the wine selection but also in taking our appetizer order when no waiters were in sight. It was a nice summer evening and it would have been nice to have had a drink on the patio, but we were informed there was no room and were ushered into a dark annex to the bar. We got the impression that the place is overwhelmed by its success and that the front part of the restaurant is out of control. Fortunately the kitchen is working fine, so the food was quite good."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This was our second time dining at Ninety Acres. We went on a Thursday evening because we were celebrating our 12th anniversary and it fell on a Thursday. That being said, we were surprised that the food delivery was slow. The drinks and first courses were served but it took a long time for the entrees to be served. It was a good 15 minutes or so before the entrees arrived (after our first course plates were cleared off our table). Other than that, everything else was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The entire evening was an EXPERIENCE, from the wait staff to the chef to the food and the wine. We were not rushed at all, pampered from the beginning, and feasted completely."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Great location and fabulous food. They have an extensive wine list but bring your checkbook. Great wine does not come cheap. We celebrated a friend passing the Professional Engineer exam and we were not disappointed. I would definitely go back to this restaurant."

  • "Had been wanting to try 90 Acres for awhile & finally got there. Needed to book for a Friday night at a reasonable time 6 weeks in advance, so make your reservations early if you want to go. Beautiful setting, great food & fantastic service with team of 3 catering to us. Will be back for another special occassion!"

  • "David Felton and staff have again exceeded our expectations. We had a great meal outside in celebration our youngest son's graduation."

  • "If you live in Mercer, Somerset or Morris counties in NJ, looking for a special occasion restaurant and don't want to drive into New York, this is the place! The atmosphere is wonderful, the service is great and the food is fantastic!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Everything was wonderful except for my 90 dollar steak. It took a Herculean effort to cut every piece. I decided not to send it back in order to keep the dinner flow going. My wife enjoyed her meal very much."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Crazy expensive (1 $11 glass of wine between the 2 of us and the meal was $275), food was good but not THAT good."
