    Fourth or fifth time dining there. My mussels were served plain without a broth or anything in which to dip. My tuna au poivre was served cold. A shame- we like the spot- but the past few experiences were underwhelming.

    This is a very nice restaurant with an interesting menu most of which is excellent, but there are a few missteps like the way the flounder was presented and the vegetarian entree, which was lentils and squash. The homemade biscuits are absolutely delicious as are the desserts.

    Great NYE. Food was delicious & reasonably priced. Not a customer around that wasn't smiling, having fun & enjoying their meal. Missy & her staff do a great job & everyone in our party (a few newcomers) loved the food. I can't say enough good things about 252. Thanks for a great meal & very memorable New Years! We can't wait to go back.

  • Mixed on food, not worth the value
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/31/2012
    The food did not quite follow the menu descriptions. Examples: For the kale salad, there was hardly a trace of manchego cheese, for the gnudi, there was no butter or sage flavors, leaving it bland, for the side of frices, maybe a tiny sprinkle of pecorino cheese if you squinted. All of the missing ingredients mentioned were listed on the menu in the descriptions. Not really worth the $75 tab for 2. The lobster sandwich was tasty. So was the 252 candy bar dessert.

    We were very very pleasantly surprised. Knew nothing about it. Looking for a BYO and found it listed in NJ monthly. Reviews were fine, but again, we didn't no anyone who had gone. the food was deliciously and nicely prepared. The fact that is is almost all organic, farm to table, locally grown and they are considerate of allergies and take any substitutions......well that was a plus and actually why I picked the place.. Food is all fresh, not processed and interested combinations. Place is very quaint as well. We will definitely go back. Loved it.

    Great intimate restaurant with unique food combinations. We had the scallops and lamb, both cooked to perfection. The server was very knowledgable and attentive. The chef was accomodating to our food allergies. The space is small but inviting, menu fresh, and the fact that it's BYO makes it all the better. We will be back.

    Always a great experience food wise, but the noise level is very high. Not sure if it is do to the room itself or layout of the tables, but unfortunately it does take away from what otherwise is a fine dining experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/17/2012
    We were very disappointed with our experience at 252. While the makings are there for a great restaurant, we left feeling like we wasted our money and had a very average experience. At $60 a head (not including our BYOB bottles) at a rural NJ restaurant, one expects excellent service and food...we got neither. Our server was polite, but not welcoming or over enthusiastic about the menu, making no suggestions and offering little insight into the idea behind the menu, clearly serving at a fine dining establishment was not on her forte...as for the food, the menu was enticing and different. However, the plates did not reach their potential. Very average, very small (1/2 filet of flounder over a scoop of lentils) and very pricey. Save your $.

    Two Fifty Two is a very nice BYO restaurant. The room is pleasant but it's easy to hear the other diners (it's noisey). The menu is interesting, combining local and seasonal ingredients in very tasty ways. The squash gnodi (gnocchi) and mussels appetizers were delicious. The tuna au poivre was enhanced by the mild fennel and the pasta bolognese was very good.The portions are generous. The service is friendly and professional at the same time. We will definitely be back.

    Crostini starter was miniscule and for the high prices being charged for the meal was annoyed that there was a charge for them. Entree was so peppery it was inedible. I was disappointed that there was no effort to offer a replacement or to reduce the charge.

  • The kale and slivered brussells
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/25/2012
    The kale and slivered brussells sprout salad was really delicious. I had the flounder which was fresh and served with diced potatoes and veggies; my daughter had the farfale with panchetta. We both really liked the freshness and tastiness of the meals - no overwhelming sauce or additives. The bonus was dessert - homemade candy bar served with icecream on the side. It was outstanding. I will definitely recommend to my friends.

    This is a terrific upscale American restaurant tucked away in Bedminster. The atmosphere is elegant and intimate. The food and service were excellent. The restaurant is small so it's not good for big groups but it is perfect for a date night. This is definitely one of the best Byob restaurants in NJ.

    Small, over-priced portions (Smoked salmon appetizer on tiny toast = $12. 4 scallops plus undercooked peas = $31, for example).
