A Toute Heure has been a mainstay of Cranford, New Jersey since 2007. An early adopter of the farm to table movement, ATH is dedicated to supporting local purveyors and using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. A Toute Heure means "At Any Hour" and was designed to have a forward thinking yet crowd pleasing menu. The chef has a mastery of cuisines from all around the world and utilizes French, Italian and Japanese cooking techniques to deliver wide ranging flavors. Though the food is elevated, the ambience is down to earth and the service is incredibly friendly. A Toute Heure is a B.Y.O.

This was our first visit back since the new owners took over and we were very pleased with the service and food. The chef offers an interesting menu and seems to be successfully creative with his twist on the various dishes. We will certainly return to ATH in the future.

I haven’t been back since new ownership. I absolutely love/d this place, from the quaint atmosphere, stellar service and outstanding menu. I was very disappointed in the menu this time; while I loved the choices of mussels and creative ‘daily specials’ ... both fell short. I’m not too sure I’ll be returning ;((

Overall the experience was good. There were a few misses—over salted some of the dishes (and we love salt). Crudo was amazing however. Menu was limited with more surf than turf. Though the dishes were imaginative. Desert was underwhelming. We will try it again like we did the original and became regulars. I would like to be able to be a regular once again. We shall see

The food is exceptional. The Service is great. You made my wife who has Celiacs feel very accommodated by changing up some of the dishes to make them gluten free. I love the boutique feel of the restaurant as well and all the locally sourced food and farm to table approach. You guys are truly outstanding.

The soups are amazingly good. The Irish salmon is perfectly cooked and delicious. We had the Parker House rolls for the first time...the best I have ever had! The clafoutis for dessert is not to be missed. The service is attentive and personal. This is one of the best restaurants in NJ.

The menu change is so disappointing. I was really looking forward to the rabbit and crème brulée but was disappointed to see a new menu with very few selections. My steak was good and so was the sauce but the waitress then informed me there were two different sauces on the plate, one I hadn’t noticed. A green one made with pureeed anchovies. I hate fish and it put me off my meal. The dessert selection was mediocre at best. My husband’s dish was way too salty. The side dish was served lukewarm. We enjoyed our meal so much last summer but this time was so disappointing we will not be back. I overheard a few customers say the same thing.

Hello, The food was very good. The service not so much. One of the waiters was very Loud an kinda obnoxious. He was not waiting on us. Napkins were not folded when you returned to your table. The ladies we had taken care of seemed very tentative, like it was there first day working there. We had a late reservation so it was that that busy. Just not a good vibe. The bathroom garbage can was over following with soiled paper towels. For the money we spent, I believe the staff and the bathroom should have been a little better.

Don’t know if I would go back.

Where do I start? I dine out a bit and generally have an expectation of so-called higher end restaurants (this place is masquerading as one). Start with the food: it is not unique nor are the food combinations taseful. Every dish I was served was substantially over-salted masking the taste of the actual food. Start with the table bread - not home made, just mush and just bread, no garnishment or added oil butter or sauce, but tons if SALT. As for the appetizers and entrees - this included fish, Shishito peppers and Octopus. Strange presentations with flavors that don't mix, and the Octopus - covered in salty mashed potato? Really? And now the cosy - WAAAY overpriced for the lack of quality and the portions. Food here is equatable to a diner, except that you are charged three or four times what a diner charges. And finally server displayed a strong condescending tone all evening, could not sufficiently explain the dishes on a very small menu and neither could the young host. What a regret for an evening that was indicated in Opetable as a birthday dinner and of course, NO acknowledgement WHATSOEVER from the restaurant about the birthday. What a (bad) memory.

Service was excellent and food was good but not amazing for the price. Plus it was very loud. Previous owners only had small tables and 1 table for 6. New owners seem to accommodate larger groups which increase noise and lessens the intimate and relaxing atmosphere that was there previously.

This was our fifth or sixth dining experience at A Toute Heure. Again, as perfect as ever. The tone is set from the start with scrumptious bread and exciting fresh selections. This time we opted for an aged steak-for-two, with wild mushrooms, broccoli rabe and twice baked potato. As predictable as the sides sound, they were their own best versions, meeting and exceeding expectations. The meat was tender, aged-meat taste explosion, cooked exactly to our preference. Fabulous dinner yet again!

Fantastic restaurant. Food is modern and excellent, with at least one dish for everyone's needs. Service was incredible and friendly. The ingredients are locally sourced and stated on one of the walls. Best of all, it's BYO so bring what you are in the mood for.

On Saturday, 1/5/19, my wife and I visited A Toute Heure for the first time, but it will not be our last.
Every aspect of our dinner was outstanding: food, service, and ambience.

This chef turns out superb food from his open kitchen, and the concise seasonal menu contains excellent options for anyone. We shared an appetizer of seared octopus and a house salad. We both ordered the halibut entree, and shared the special dessert, a pineapple cheesecake. Every dish was superb.

Service too was top notch. We were warmly greeted by Dana, who informed us that Adam would be our server. And he was delightful. Affable, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about this chef’s cuisine, he helped to make our night a pleasure.

We loved the small dining room and felt immediately at home. Ambiance is comfortable and designed to keep the diner’s attention on the excellent food. In addition, this BYO restaurant provides exceptional wine glasses for their customers, as good or better than we’ve had at far more expensive restaurants.

Our thanks to everyone for a wonderful dinner.

Certainly we’ll be back to A Toute Heure very soon.
