Consistently outstanding! 4th visit and there will definitely be more.

I popped in during a Saturday lunch and shared a bunch of apps with a friend. Each one was better than the next! Can't wait to go back for dinner.

Such a gem!
Time after time, ATH outperforms most every restaurant we've been to in NY and the metropolitan area. Love this little spot and most people will!

Definitely For Foodies
We have been to this small restaurant twice and have been amazed how wonderful the food has been. All the food is fresh and locally obtained. The fish comes from Fulton fish market fresh each day. Service is very good. Only complaint is that it is a BYOB restaurant. Will definitely go again.

ATH was one of the nicest
ATH was one of the nicest places I've been to in quite some time. The wait staff was friendly, the food was outstanding, and the overall look and feel of the restaurant was so well coordinated -- from the menus to the flower boxes on the sidewalks. Their food is sourced from local markets and farms, so the menu was seasonally appropriate and diverse in selection. All of the food was marvelous and you couldn't ask for a nicer environment. Well done!

Delicious and always enjoyable dinning experience.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about our dining experience at A Toute Heure was wonderful. They are justified in taking a great deal of pride in everything that the kitchen produces. The subtle blending of flavors, using their own home-grown vegetables was simply fantastic.

Great Sunday brunch
Service excellent, friendly, personable. Food fantastic, although egg souffle too plain. Prices a bit steep for breakfast (about $90 for 2) but setting, service, quality made it acceptable for a special treat. Pulled pork cinnamon bun good, different. Jalapeno hushpuppies great, sauce strange. Great that is is BYOB or champagne for mimosas. Helped keep price down. OJ excellent, lots of pulp.

Went here to celebrate my birthday although unable to get reservation for my actual birthday. Was immediately greeted upon entry to restaurant, with an offer of sparkling or still water and our bottle of wine promptly corked and poured.
We had ample time to review menu including a description of the days specials
Mussels were delicious and the sauce/broth creative. Our table ordered 3 different types and one was not as favored as much as the other 2 -- perhaps a sampling of sauces
Entree's were very good -- but we were so full from our mussel appetizers that we did get these wrapped. We ended with a sharing of the stone fruit cobbler and brown butter ice-cream -- simple and delicious.
Would definitely come back !!!

Consistently interesting food. Consistently good service. Consistently enjoyable evening!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good, was it worth the money, definitely not. The dessert was bigger than the entree. Crab cakes had peppers in them and took away from the crab cake taste.

And it continues to charm
Consistent, creative and inviting, A Toute Heure is our go to place for no occasion and special occasions. This was our 25th anniversary dinner and it was awesome.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is always on point. Very unique combinations!

My favorite season at A Toute Heure
It's such a wonderful feeling to have a reservation for a month, and look forward to it on your calendar every day because you know you are going to have an amazing dining experience.
Thanks A Toute Heure for doing everything right every time we come!

Best meal yet
We've had great meals at A Toute Heure in the past, but this surpassed all of those good memories. Our server went above and beyond describing the menu to us and made us feel like incredibly valued guests. The menu itself was so interesting and full of fresh fall flavors (so much so that my mom wanted to plan our next meal there, before even tasting a bite). Everything down to the fresh baked bread and home made butter was divine. And we always love the atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Toute Heure's French-bistro cuisine is not to be missed. Located on a quiet corner in Cranford, the ambience is warm and cozy. The farm to table theme leads to creativity that will leave no diner disappointed. Pay particular attention to specials and the catch of the day. This restaurant is a must-visit.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
First timer. Server was friendly
First timer. Server was friendly and knew the menu well. Shared several small plates, pizza, cheese and dessert! Left full and very happy. Will return.

I celebrated my birthday with
I celebrated my birthday with the family and enjoyed this place so much! The cozy country feel of the restaurant adds to the dining experience. The food was excellent! I had the Catch of the Day and it was a very good piece of local tuna over mashed potatoes and califlower done to perfection. I highly recommend this place for a cozy romantic evening with your significant other! Be sure to make reservations in advance due to the popularity of this place.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed their cheese plate
Enjoyed their cheese plate - the house baked crackers were unbelievably good, as were the house baked parker rolls with sundried tomato butter.
For dinner we enjoyed 2 kind of mussel pots - Kara's and the hot one, and they were fresh and delicious. We also had the steak, which was cooked perfectly and very tasty.
Dessert was the warm chocolate chip cookie with a scoop of ice cream and the toffee applie cake. Excellent.
We plan on going back.

I ate at A Toute Heure with my wife for my 65th birthday. The meal was fantastic. I had sea robin with polenta and broccolini. My wife had braised beef cheek with fingerling potatoes. Both dishes were very flavorful, well presented and service was excellent. A great dining experience. Just bring your own wine!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice and interesting menu. Everything cooked with passion. Service level was great and we could bring our own wine.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The wait was worth it...
Making a reservation turned out to be a challenge because A Toute Heure is such a popular place. But we finally made it and it was worth the wait. It is a cosy place with only a few tables. The staff welcomes you warmly and the enthusiasm with which they serve and explain the food is wonderful. Not to forget about the foo,d it was a real treat, outstanding, delicious... . I look forward to our next visit there.

A wonderful Friday night dinner
Service was attentive yet not intrusive. Our appetizers, oysters (briny and medium bodied) and salad (with toasted sunflower seeds and roasted beets) were fresh and plentiful. The chicken entree with gnocci, was succulent and seasoned to perfection.
Mussel pot (Robyn) with white, fried chick peas accompanied by potato frites was deliciously tender and quite filling. By the time I had finished my mussels and chick peas, I had no room to enjoy dipping the bread into the remaining broth. The walnut cake was moist and flavorful. While I enjoyed the boldness of the press pot coffee, I really enjoy a cappuccino. ATH does not offer that option. Overall, our dinner experience at ATH was wonderfully satisfying.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never disappoints us!
My husband and I celebrated our 28th anniversary dinner at ATH. We have been going there for several years and we always have a wonderful dinner. The staff is very professional, the food is delicious, the room is casual yet special. This is one of our favorites restaurants in New Jersey. As someone who grew up in Brooklyn, I appreciate food and enjoy good food. Thanks for a great night.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a way to celebrate our 30th!!!
My husband and I chose to celebrate our 30th anniversary at this neighborhood gem! It was my second visit and my husband's first.
From our fabulous waitress (Erin who was realtively new) to the owner coming over twice to "check in," and let's not forget the amazing food (the parker rolls are spectacular!!!)
The intimacy is so special and we felt it was the perfect choice for this very special occasion.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious & Doting
Their farm-to-table philosophy is executed perfectly. The ingredients were cooked the maximum way to have taste & freshness and the service was doting without being overbearing, explaining to us where the ingredients originate from. The dining area was a bit loud, but overall, it was a lovely place I would return to eat again.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely wonderful experience
We had been trying to get a reservation here for some time. We finally made did, one month in advance. I was afraid it would not live up to the hype. I was so pleased it did! The owners are wonderful! Everyone is very friendly and professional. I love that they use all local and fresh ingredients. They have a garden and grow much of the stuff themselves. The freshness of ingredients is evident in every bite. We had a very delicious dinner and can't wait to go back again. I highly recommend this restaurant!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My belly smiled
We took my husband here for a special birthday dinner and the food is just scrumptious. Upon initial greeting to seating to service, we felt the warmth of the owners and experience excellent healthy food. So tasty and so cozy, I would love to come again! What's really great is that the food comes home grown from local farms and some unique foods are cooked so tasty. I had a few oysters as well as the mussel pot and my hubby had the scallops which were cooked very nicely and not rubbery like most places. Good food, good people, good times. Exactly what is needed in our back yard. You won't regret!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
worth the wait
it took me almost one year to get down here as I live pretty far away. But I can tell you that was absolutely worth the wait. rarely does a menu inspire me to want to eat everything on it, but the diversity and preparation of the food was outstanding. ingredients were incredibly fresh and the flavors were full yet balanced, and not overpowering. The service from the waitstaff was on point, as I prefer not to be bothered so often. they checked in every 15 or 20 minutes or so if not a little more, but more importantly their eyes were attentive to my table at all times and if I needed anything they were right there. Will absolutely be back to this restaurant, and will recommend to many. if you are a foodie, GO!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is currently one of my favorite restaurants. The menu changes monthly which makes for a new food experience every time.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pre Ghost Tour dinner
This was our first outing at A Toute Heure and will certainly not be our last !
Our server was well versed in the offerings and specials and made recommendations which were appreciated.
All courses were delicious. We will be back next time with friends !
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
As always, A Toute Heure was delicious! The menu is such a pleasant surprise each time I visit and anything I order never disappoints. I brought a friend from out of town and he was thoroughly impressed with this small town gem. Thanks for an amazing brunch!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is such a great place.
This is such a great place. We have been coming periodically for the last few years. It does not dissappoint for dinner. Dining room comfortably seats 40 so plenty of space between tables, yet a warm feel. The wait staff is knowledgeable and unpretentious. And the food was fantastic ... again. This is definitely a foodie haven. We started with oysters and the brussels sprouts bites, both great. The steak frites is a winning go-to staple, but we went for the braised pork pot pie, with pumpkin! and also the sea scallops. Both were awesome at every bite. And save room for the homemade ice creams. Also remember it's BYOB.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely Wonderful Dinner
This is one of the absolutely best restaurants in Jersey. All the food is locally produced and cooked to perfection. The oysters were a fabulous starter followed by the pumpkin mushroom soup. The short ribs with turnips and leek confit were absolutely to die for. finished off with the homemade ice cream - salted caramel and white chocolate chip. Great service.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, very friendly atmosphere. Very interesting menu. We had a great dinner at A Toute Heure.

Food + Service = Amazing Experience
Our server was Filipe and he was very knowledgeable on the menu, answered all of our questions, really attentive and ensured we had everything we needed all throughout dinner. We actually came to ATH for my husband's dinner and so it was a little more nerve racking for me because I chose the restaurant and I was bringing him out to eat so I wanted to make sure everything would go smoothly since my husband normally handles reservations and new places to try- I'm so glad we came here because he (and I) walked away impressed by the food, ambiance, and of course service. It's a 35 minute trek from where we live in North Jersey but completely worth the drive :) even a little sad that we don't have a neighborhood gem near us like this.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Quaint,Intimate, Gourmet yet Casual
Well, the title line about says it all. "A Toute Heure" manages to create a wonderfully intimate & quaint dining experience with a very casual atmosphere yet they serve up a nicely upscale gourmet menu.
For those like myself who appreciate a fine foody experience without the formal pretence, "ATH" truly is a hidden neighborhood gem.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently the Best
A Toute Heure never disappoints....it is consistently the best restaurant experience in New Jersey. From their friendly, knowledgeable staff through to their absolutely unique and delicious menu, a meal at A Toute Heure is always perfect from start to finish!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Charming restaurant in Cranford
This is a charming BYO restaurant with a great ambience. They believe in "farm to table" and use fresh local produce from their own nearby garden. We went on a Tuesday night for dinner. I had the Robyn's mussel pot, which was delicious. My husband had the smoked braised short ribs and they were very tender. The service was attentive to our needs but not intrusive. I will definitely return to dine here again.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love ATH!
A Toute Heure is a low key restaurant that serves extraordinary food. I find myself willing to try menu selections that are not regular "go-tos" for me when at a restaurant as I know they will be delicious. The service is excellent as well, very attentive, bit not intrusive. It is a BYOB place which we feels enables us to better focus on the wonderful menu rather than drinks. In our most recent visit we enjoyed braised short-ribs which were very tender and the ATH Pot Pie, warm comfort food choice on a cold night, in which the flavors of the vegetables came though rather then being masked in a heavy sauce. l which was I wish I was better able to use language to convey how delicious the food is. Our visits are always a treat!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Toute Heure is, without a doubt, one of the best dining experiences in all of New Jersey! It has been reviewed in both the Star Ledger and New Jersey magazine and recevied a 4 star rating - which it certainly deserves. The food, service and ambiance are outstanding - highly recommended!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Worth a detour
We came upon ATH via Open Table, somehow missing all of the awards and accolades bestowed on the restaurant for the last 7 years! It is a true gem. The welcoming service, purveying of local ingredients, the mussel pots, homemade breads, creative pizzas, wholesome ingredients, delicious espresso, and all else make it a winner.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Its always an eating adventure. The food is creatively prepared, beautifully served and all local. A favorite of mine!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have to been to ATH over
We have to been to ATH over and over again.. It is always the same. FANTASTIC EVENING, food, and service is outstanding. We can't wait to try 100 Steps. Best steak in NJ.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
A friend recommended A Toute Heure and we really enjoyed it. The small restaurant has a quaint bistro feel with votive candles in Mason jars lending nice mood lighting. ATH uses seasonal, locally sourced food and thus the menu is changed monthly. We chose from the November menu which featured dishes with squashes, leeks, etc. Some of our choices all of which we enjoyed included: fresh oysters with a tangy mignonette, roasted sun chokes with a radicchio salad and a cumin aioli, super tender beef short ribs in a rich sauce over mashed potatoes, catch of the day - Opa - directly from Fulton Fish Market, apple-toffee cake with home-made ice cream. Overall a great little find!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Honestly, I was a little skeptical, but I gave it a try since I am a foodie! I really loved it. The food was delicious and the presentation of their dishes is quite sophisticated. I will definitely make a reservation for dinner or brunch next time I am in the area.

Down to earth spectacular
Wow. A hidden gem in Cranford New Jersey! We were totally blown away by the food and friendly service!
