Have been going here for years on and off and they recently added to the menu and the food is outstanding. I don't recallit being so delicious and fresh!

A gem at the station
Whenever I'm in the Mountain Lakes area I must go to this absolute gem. Everyone I bring here also becomes a steady customer. Delightful in every respect.

Great Food in an Unbeatable Setting
Surprisingly excellent food, a large menu selection and a dazzling train station setting where outdoor or indoor dinning brings warmth and excitement. A restaurant in the middle of nowhere, this is a top 10 NJ American dinning experience. The make spicy entrees better than anywhere else I've tried. Service is a tad slow and amateurish but that is easily forgiven.

Food was excellent. My server was very helpful, she was knowledgeable about the food preparation and was attentive. Very nice setting in a wooded area right by the quiet train tracks. Very good, I will return when I am next in the area.

This Restaurant Was Great!
My husband and I am so happy we had the opportunity to eat here. We will definitely be back in the near future. Menu selections were varied and flavorful. Service was excellent.

It has been a long time since I have been so pleasantly surprised while trying a new (to us) restaurant which I had never heard of. The "middle of nowhere" location adds to the spectacular ambiance of this unique building. Since it was our first time, we tried several different dishes, all were excellent and perfectly prepared. The Station at Mountain Lakes was the find of the year for us, can't wait to return!

Excellent, hidden (except for being next to the train station) Mountain Lakes gem. Nice quiet setting (loved eating on the Patio), great menu and good service. It's now on my local Open Table list.

Best service and meal in Parsippany
I visit the Parsippany area on business quite often and am always looking for a decent dinner. Until this point, I always had to settle on nondescript restaurants with no atmosphere, bland food, and ok service, not realizing anything better existed in the neighborhood. Luckily I found this amazing spot, where the service is seriously top notch and the Chicken Madeira and arugula salad were delicious and clearly made from fresh ingredients. I also really enjoyed the decor, which was rustic and, true to its name, a converted train station. I have finally found my prime dinner spot for Parsippany business trips, and will return again and again.

We have been to Station many times and it is always fantastic. The restaurant itself is in an historic train station with great character inside and out. Whether you choose the quaint wood paneled bar or one of the two main dining rooms, you will be charmed by the beautiful decor and great service. The food is a perfect blend of creative cuisine and traditional favorites. I have enjoyed many a cozy dinner with my husband in the bar, evenings catching up with girlfriends and dinners with family at the Station. I even had them cater a Holiday Luncheon for 35 people. Each time, the experience and food are top notch. I highly recommend!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch in the back garden. Overall a nice experience. It's a beautiful restaurant with good good... I just couldn't understand why it was practically empty on a Tuesday at 12:30pm. I hope they make it because its a find.

Been here many times because I know my guests and I will always have a great evening.

GREAT First Experience!
Went to The Station on a recommendation from a friend and was BLOWN AWAY by how great the experience was. The owner was apologizing for the wait for a table, engaged us in conversation about the historic building then acted like a true gentleman by helping me down the stairs, and pulling the seat out for me. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. My husband enjoyed his wine (I don't drink) and our food was spectacular! Unfortunately we had to leave before dessert but we'll be back for an entire meal next time.

What a fabulous restaurant!
The food was amazing! The service was awesome! Carlos takes special care of all the guests and makes everyone feel welcome like family! I highly recommend the Tuna! It was so good that I can't wait to go back to have it again!!

Four of us had a wonderful experience at The Station. The waiter picked up immediately on our personalities and joked along with us. He service was prompt and he helped explain several of the many delicious sounding choices. The food was excellent with the veal chops that two of us ordered being done to perfection. Everything from appetizers to dessert and coffee was superb.

A Special Spot
The Station is a special neighborhood gem. You always feel welcome and special. The food is consistently good and the deserts are delicious and all made on the premises. There are too many items on the menu which leads one to believe that its not as fresh as it should be but the specials are always exceptional as are the salads and soups. The ambiance is great and we always have a great time.

We loved everything about our dinner at the station! What a wonderful place. We were staying in Parsippany , which lacks the type of restaurants we enjoy. We enjoy food of only the highest quality! Searching open table we found this gem less than 2 miles away, in the beautiful forest fairy town of Mountain Lakes. Everything was perfect. There were so many delicious choices, and I appreciated that the gluten free options were marked. We've been telling our family and friends about this find, and look forward to eating here again next time we are in the area.

ALL-AMERICAN COMFORT FOOD
Gorgeous field stone house. Polite staff. Spectacular gorgonzola filet mignon cooked to perfection. Excellent side dishes.

The 3 of us enjoyed the entire dinner. Very good food, service & ambience. We will return.

Great place, fantastic food!
A great place & probably my favorite in the local area. Terrific ambiance and food! Love the location and will definitely come back

The only drawback to the restaurant is the long flight of stairs down to the dining room. A small bar area with a couple of tables upstairs for those that cannot negotiate the staircase is okay but noisy and cramped. But the dinner was very good and will be on our to go list as long as we can negotiate the stairs.

Interesting setting, set in what was formerly the Mountain Lakes train station waiting room. Has a warm, welcoming feel. Overall everything was excellent. I can see why the residents of Mountain Lakes frequent this restaurant so much and speak so fondly of it.

As you walk in there's a very quaint intimate bar where the bartender is happy to serve. We had an 8 pm reservation, the table was ready. We were not rushed at the bar and once seated it was a wonderful dining experience. Loved everything about this restaurant and the servers! The food was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Very quaint in a nice setting
The staff greeted us immediately and seated us right away. Very quaint building with much history. We started out with the firecracker calamari which was fantastic. I ordered the special of sole stuffed with crabmeat. Others in my party ordered the jambalaya, shrimp with lobster ravioli and shrimp with spinach . Unique that the caloric content of many meals was listed on the menu. The wine was quite reasonable as well. I tried the bread pudding for dessert which was awesome. Topped off with a Mexican Coffee.

I'd go back...
It is a very nice place. The staff were all very pleasant and the food was good. I had steak and it was one of the best I've had out in a quite a while. Small glitch with the take home leftovers, but the manager took care of it immediately -- no questions asked.
