Incredible ExperienceStage Left Restaurant was an unbelievable dining and food experience. When you have spectacular food with spectacular flavors and then with probably the best wine list I have ever seen - the experience was just incredible. I selected a California 2002 Cab - Mark (one of the owners), spoke of the winery with knowledge and command. It was truly a GREAT wine!!
My dinner companion was thoroughly enjoyable also. A perfect experience all around!!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA lovely mealThe environment is attractive and comfortable. The servers were polite and had personality. The wine list offers a huge range of both variety and price- from affordable to absurd ($12,000 was one option). The menu offered a variety of flavors and is appropriate for both adventurous and picky diners. Dessert was delicious, although it took a bit long to arrive. If you pref732 994 5286er to enjoy your dessert with your coffee or tea, be sure to request that or you will finish the drink before the dessert is brought out. We had a lovely dinner. The quality matched the bill. We will go back again.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyWonderful food and wine and excellent staff. Overall a great evening!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!Most enjoyable dinner.

I travel quite a distance to have dinner here and love it. Been coming here for many years. Even though it is only several times a year we are always remembered.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant...My husband and I ate here for the first time because of a show at State Theatre. I Picked it based on reviews. Was NOT disappointed! We had the Arugula salad and scallop appetizers and were quite impressed. I was surprised and disappointed that they did not have Pinot Grigio as part of the extensive wine list but was not disappointed with the glass of chardony they recommended. I HAD to order the burger after reading the reviews and I agree, it is easily the "best burger" I have ever eaten. The service was fantastic and timed perfectly to our show departure. The only complaint was the double expresso that my husband ordered.It was cold and only a single...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Special Anniversary DinnerWe went to Stage Left before seeing a show at the State Theater. The staff was aware that we were going to the show, so they perfectly timed the dinner so that we got there with time to spare. The food was excellent! The portions were a bit small for the price, but we savored every bite. We were presented with a beautiful plate with the words "Happy Anniversary" drizzled in chocolate with strawberry sorbet at the end of our meal, which was the perfect ending to a wonderful dinner. The wine list was extensive, and the staff was very knowledgable in helping us to pick out a delicious wine at a reasonable price. We will definitely be back!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMit had the best burger I'veit had the best burger I've ever had.

The food was spectacular--inventive, subtle, creative, delicious. The chef is brilliant. Kudos to he owners for running a terrific spot.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFine DiningThe service, food and atmosphere are all wonderful separately, but work together to bring the whole dinning experience to another level of enjoyment.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, as usual, was excellentThe food, as usual, was excellent and the bartender was a true professional. My
main problem was with drink prices. $ 18 for a glass of Chardonnay ?! You gotta be
kidding me. I can buy a bottle at retail for that. And $ 2.95 for 50 cents' worth of
club soda is even worse. As for service, the servers were efficient and quite pleasant, but there weren't enough of them. We waited and waited for our drinks and food, which,
as might be expected, arrived lukewarm. This wasn't the first time that has happened. Surely you know that when there is a performanceat the State Theater, you will have a full house. So stop being money-hungry cheapskates and hire additional staff on performance nights.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTravelled 2 hours from LongTravelled 2 hours from Long Island to have dinner here before the show at the State Theater. It was worth it! Attentive staff, excellent food- we arrived late due to traffic- they understood, kept our reservation, and got us out the door with time to spare- and it didn't feel rushed.
Would do it again!3/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
