This place could have closed when times were tough. They could have turned it in and no one would have faulted them for it. But they didn't. They chose what was right over what was easy and we all benefited for it in amazing food. Their pick up service was impeccable. My wife and I ordered pick up from every major holiday and birthday over the shutdown. Saturday night we dined there. Every table at least 6 ft apart. Everyone masked. The ambiance was so nice and pleasant even with the restrictions. My wife ad I had a great time.
And the food...Their salmon- amazing! Their mussel pot- to die for. and the brussel Sprouts?!?!?! Awesome! Whoever can make brussel spouts that good needs to be open. All in all, with so many "knuckleheads" out there it is nice to be in a place where someone can succeed following the rules to keep us all safe while making meals that we will remember forever. Bravo!
We have eaten at ATH before and the food/service was excellent. They have a good setup with outdoor dining right now. My only issue was that the menu right now is very small with 3-4 items on each menu section (small plates and large plates). There were also no specials. I don’t blame the restaurant, as I’m sure it is difficult to run the place in these times. The food was just as good as it was before Covid, but just be aware of the smaller menu options.
Second time eating here over the years. Had the Short Ribs, To me they were bland and tasted reheated in a microwave. Carrots on side were undercooked, polenta cake was soggy. Brussel Sprout app was decent. Service was good. Doubt I will return given the price point ($36) for the Short Ribs.
Have gotten take out a few times lately but this was first dine outside experience. It was terrific. Food and service really great.
Food was prepared perfectly. Would recommend highly.
First time I have not loved it. Food had a lot of salt and muscles were not great. Love this place and even though I am providing this less than stellar review it still beats most restaurants in NJ, always great service!
Always wonderful food. I came as a party of 5 to sit outside. The table was near the back of the restaurant outside and my chair view was that of the trash cans - so not too pleased by that. But overall a great restaurant and food - just define where you are being seated.
As always, great food and service and with BYOB rivals one if the best restaurants in NJ.
Excellent service and food! We appreciate that there was multiple vegetarian options. Delicious as always!
Outdoor sitting due to COVID-19
Went here to celebrate our five year anniversary and also our first date night since the closure. The staff was amazingly attentive and it was very clean. Never once felt uncomfortable. The food was exceptional. Had the grilled octopus, green tomato salad, ceviche for an appetizer. For an entree we had the short rib and bourbon brined pork chop. Everything was cooked perfectly, we were very impressed. Not one complaint and we are foodies. For dessert we ordered the homemade cheesecake. It was so good that we ordered an extra two slices to go. Definitely worth the money. Glad we decided to come here for our first night out.
Food was amazing. The outside seating is great and you feel very comfortable. All in all a wonderful dining experience.
Outdoor seating was great. Service was friendly. Food was good. We just think it is overpriced.
Amazing as always. Felt very safe with good distinace between tables and servers being very mindful. Food was spectacular. Gnocchi was the best I've had. I'm so glad we could eat here again.
Menu is very limited and does not change and lacks a variety of fish. The server was inexperienced, was not knowledgeable about the food, she forgot to give us wine glass or open our wine.
It was our first outdoor (out of home) dining experience since Covid lockdown. Much needed! Food was awesome, service was attentive & informative, the new menu items that we tried were delicious. Owner welcomed us, and thanked us for coming out. We were seated minimum 6 ft from other tables, you can tell they put a lot of thought into the logistics. We’ll be back.
Absolutely wonderful. First meal out after quarantine. Thank you! Waitstaff was outstanding.
SUrprised to get a reservation here last minute, I guess thanks to coronavirus. My appetizer of gnocchi was way to salty, everything else excellent. Their mussels continue to be fantastic, although now only one preparation.
Dinner was just delicious. Each bite is better than the last one. We felt like we were the only ones there. The service was just perfect as we sat by a romantic window filled with candles. It was a perfect rainy night date.
Perfect jewel. Mysel’s were beautifully seasoned. Parker rolls could be a reason in and of itself to go to this restaurant
Nice Valentine’s Day dinner. Prefixe was a surprise and not mentioned when we made or confirmed our reservation...but very well done none the lesss
5 course Valentines Day dinner. Salad was ok but very simple. Lobster bisque should have been warmer. Cannoli was very good. They forgot to bring us our sorbet, we had to ask for it. We had ask to ask for bread also. We waited way too long for our entree. The beef was excellent but the potatoes were undercooked, hard and cold and then they brought dessert before we finished our meals. Since the service was so slow they had to rush people out to make room for the second seating.
not sure what happened here new owners ?? The prices are through the roof. Good meal , great ambiance, but wow. Not sure this will last at this price point.
This restaurant is still charming and worked well for dinner with dear friends.
Under prior owners, it was one of my favorite restaurants. Under new ownership, service was terrible. Ordered steak was overdone and poor quality. Noise was so bad that our conversation consisted of screaming to one another and still could not hear. Hot beverages were served slightly warm. I would never go back.
Disappointing . Went there for my birthday, they never acknowledged.
My meal, while it looked very good lacked flavor. My pork was cooked well, but was tasteless.
Our server was very nice.
Chef is excellent and spot on with his flavors. He is very thoughtful, friendly and welcoming.
Absolutely love the entire experience. Had Brunch and dinner and two times each and loved it every time.
The food was excellent but a little overpriced. The service was excellent and I would recommend it to everyone
Will not return for a while...great the first time ( very expensive) but upon return the menu is limited and does not change enough to bring you back
Superb multi course NYE dinner. Inventive, attractive , and delicious. Terrific service - efficient, personal without being obtrusive. Class act all around.
Great Farm to Table
Inventive presentations and oppositions
Of main and sides
Excellent Romain salad
Beignets not like NOLA Cafe du Monde
More like fried donuts holes. Only thing on menu the didn’t meet or exceed expectations
I really like this restaurant. It changed ownership - the food is quite good but the service for our entrees were really slow.
Christmas Eve dinner was a fixed menu, but took forever to serve. Food was just okay.
The food was well prepared and tasty but the dishes were a bit disparate. Also, would have been better to have slightly smaller portions at a lesser price.
We had an amazing brunch for the first time after eating at their sister restaurant 100 Steps for dinner. Same level of quality and a more intimate, French bistro style.
It used to be one of our favorite restaurants. However, the quality of the food went down.
Another wonderful meal! We will be sure to return.
Was surprised that we were able to get a reservation - under the previous ownership reservations were extremely hard to come by, sometimes not available for 3 or more weeks. I chalked it up to this being a Thursday night. Was more surprised to find we were the only diners in the restaurant when we arrived and that was the case for the entire time we were there. Reception was warm and we were promptly seated. Upon receiving the menu, we were immediately told that the catch of the day - exactly what my wife wanted, was not available, so she elected to get the Mussel Pot and I ordered the Short Ribs. We ordered the pizza appetizer to start. No sooner did our server placed our order did she come back to the table, overly apologetic that the chef informed her the Short Ribs were not available as well. Note: there are only 4 main courses on the menu and we were down to 2. At this point, I should have just gotten up and left, but decided to order the chicken. At $38 it definitely was not worth it. In all fairness, the Mussel Pot was exceptional and very reminiscent of the original owners' recipe.
I have dined at a toute heuer in the past more times than I can count and have had nothing but exceptional experiences. Friends and family that we have taken there raved about the quality of the food and the experience. This was all under the previous ownership. All that is in the past - the restaurant is no longer what it once was.
Unfortunately a gem is gone. I can't see myself ever returning and will be sure to warn anyone else to steer clear of this establishment.
