My friend and I lunched here
My friend and I lunched here and had a wonderful meal. Everything was made to order and to our specification. A great little hideaway place. Try it!

Tasty food.... delicious appetizers
Tasty food.... delicious appetizers and entrees. The dessert left a little to be desired. Nice place for a special occasion, or a quiet romantic meal. Would go back.

Thoroughly enjoyed taking my team to lunch at Restaurant L. The food was great. Loved the calamari and the pecan crusted chicken. Very good value for the price.

I go here often. The food is delicious, never had a bad meal. I always sit at the quaint bar where you can talk with the locals and regulars that go to Restaurant L. I have met some nice people here, the Manager Janet is always warm and friendly.

First time that we went to Restaurant L - we were meeting friends of ours who were in town from Oregon and wanted something in Northern Bergen. Food was quite good as was the service and ambience. We would definitely recommend going there and hope to be back soon.

Friendly and worth the visit
Welcomed immediately and made to feel you are important to them. The waitress knew the menu well and explained the specials. The restaurant is small but perfect for private parties. Good for small groups

Everything was great! I had
Everything was great! I had the pecan crusted chicken and my husband had the short rib burger. The burger was done just right which is often a problem since my husband likes them medium well and they usually come out undercooked. The calamari was terrific with the ginger sauces instead of marinara. Opted not to have dessert as this is not one of the restaurant's strong points. This truly is a neighborhood gem! Have sat in both the bar area and the main dining room and enjoy both but was glad to see the Yankees win.

This was our 1st visit & had
This was our 1st visit & had an overall nice experience. The noise level in the bar while waiting for a table was excessive & caused by several loud women competing to talk over each other. Some people lack dignity with a few mouthfuls of alcohol.

Pass Restaurant L all the time, so decided it was time to give it a try. We usually tend to go back to our favorites all the time. Went for a "date night" with husband. Food was very good and very well priced. Also, great portion size.
Would I come back? Yes, but definitely not for a date night. It was extremely loud since there were many groups there and it is small dining room. Not romantic in the least. Would only go back with a group that I thought could rival the loudness of others!

Nice night out
Enjoyed a drink out on the back patio before dinner. Eggplant Napoleon was quite tasty. Short ribs and braised pork shank both cooked well, though portions were overly generous on both.

Food and service was great. It was very crowded when I went but it didn't matter as far as great service. The tables are a bit
Close, but all in all was a great evening

I came here because of a LivingSoci
I came here because of a LivingSocial deal and didn't expect much after reading reviews on yelp. To my delight, everything tasted amazing from the bread, to the crispy eggplant appetizer, to the short rib ravioli, and chocolate cake. Entree portions are generous and prices are reasonable. Service was also great. The dining room on the right is on the smaller side (I didn't peek at the other side) so there was a larger, rowdy crowd that put a damper on the intimate ambience. But overall, my family and I enjoyed Restaurant L and will definitely come back.

Good food, good service, pricey
Good food, good service, pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

This is a really cute little place with a great menu and cute bar area. We had a lovely meal both times we were there and we will go back again. It's a small dining room and can be noisy and and a bit cramped so you should know this before you go. That's not a negative but some may find that uncomfortable. It's a pretty place and the food and service are both very good.

Pleasant atmosphere and friendly service. Moderate to high prices but food excellent and nice portion sizes.

Love this restaurant!
We were lucky enough to grab a Living Social coupon to use at Restaurant L for my son's 18th birthday. I've been here before (great lunch specials!), but my husband and son had not. We all loved the food, My husband had the famous short ribs, my son had the L burger with short ribs on top, and I had a delicious pork shank served over unctuous homemade noodles with a creamy truffle infused sauce. The lobster appetizer pizza was inspiring - we want to figure out how to reproduce it at home! The waitress was sweet; very motherly as we talked about our teenage sons. We'll be back...

Consistently delicious neighborhood
Each time my friends get together at the bar for wine and appetizers or we
bring my friends mother for a Sunday dinner, the food is always consistently
delicious. Great wine by the glass selection.

Warm and intimate
Food is consistently good. A favorite for the many repeat visitors.

Every time I go to this restaurant, I have a great time. The food is delicious and the ambiance is wonderful. The menu has some great specials and terrific standards like the pecan crusted chicken and short rib ravioli. The calamari with the ginger sauce makes it stand out from other restaurants. I like the fact that we can dine in the bar area (either at real tables or the bar) and watch the game or enjoy quiet conversation in the separate dining area. Love to eat out here at least once a month. When we get too busy, we order take out!

My Favorite Local Restaurant!
I've been to Restaurant L many times, my last visit was early on a Friday night with a friend.
The menu has something for everyone beef, seafood, chicken, pasta. Not overwhelming but a great selection. They offer gluten free items as well. Some of my favorites are short ribs, chili shrimp, polenta with mushrooms. Portions are just right not huge and not small. I usually pass on dessert but not at this restaurant. Fresh mini donuts, served warm. OMG!! Special Martinis are are flavorful and never too sweet. Waitresses are attentive but not too much.
This was my friends first visit and she was impressed. Mentioned that she'd surely be back.

So many nice choices, it was hard to decide. The grouper with loster mashed potatoes was expertly prepared. Have not had a bad dish yet. Nice wine list, bottle of Sean Minor Pinot was incredible smooth. Will be back.

Loved Restaurant L!
This was our first time. I had heard nice things about the restaurant. Since it was geographically located along our way, we decided to try something new. We felt very welcomed upon entering. The ambiance was intimate, cozy and absolutely lovely. We had a beautiful round banquette table in the corner. The service was excellent….the food outstanding. We started with the beet salad…entree was tilapia, and the preparation was delicious. Relaxing and comfortable….we look forward to a return visit!

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Restaurant L and we were surprised at how much more we enjoyed it this time. The food was outstanding and the service was great. This will now be our "go to" restaurant when we are with friends or just stopping in for dinner.
I recommend that every one gives Restaurant L a try.
