The service was exceptional, and the food was delicious. Amar (my waitress) chose my lunch for me. Sante Fe chicken warp, with sweet potatoe fries. I will return to order other tasty choices from the menu.

This place was mediocre at best. I saw the menu on Open Table, and had my mouth all set for pizza. It was on the real menu when I got there, too. But when I ordered it, the waitress (who was nice) apologized and said that they only have pizza on "event nights", whatever those are. I don't even remember now what I ended up ordering, except for a salad, which wasn't great. The trouble is there aren't many (any?) good restaurants in this part of Newark, apparently. I was staying in a hotel downtown.

We were a bit late, but our reservation was honored. We were seated quickly, our orders were taken when we were ready, drinks brought quickly and refreshed as needed. Food was good, the Sloppy Edison sandwich was Huge and delicious! Very convenient location, right across the street from the Prudential Center.

Waitress was too serious, cold and had an attitude. Soda were a rip off, ice filled to top and charged for each refill which we weren't told. Also pizza wasn't available until dinner. Wasn't told up front. Why have on menu? I still left a generous tip of over 20 percent because i know it's tough work but will never eat here again. Also when we wanted to order dinner waitress totally ignored me the first time.

I have never really encountered a bad experience there. I enjoy the service and the waitresses/waiters are very good and pleasant, which to me is a plus. They do come by every so often to ask how everything is and to check-up on re-fills, etc. Again, to me that is a plus. If I don't enjoy and/or like the service or the atmosphere of a restaurant, I will not return or recommend it, but I would recommend this one. I do suggest to make a reservation, especially at lunch time and I have never had a problem of not having my reservation kept. I have ordered a few things and was never disappointed and the food is very tasty and actually good. Another plus. I only go at lunch time so can't vouch for any other times. I recommend you at least give it one try and decide for yourself, but I don't think you would be disappointed.

Knew the EAH from going to Devils games. Always good food and good service. Was attending an event at the NJPAC and it was less than a 10 minute walk.

I made reservations on Open Table and I contacted them on the day of my reservation just to make sure everything was set. They advise me that they do not take reservations and I only have 5 minutes to get there or they will give my table away. From that rude tone of voice I decided not even go and waste my time eating there.

I walked all the way there in the cold after booking a reservation through opentable to find out that the kitchen was closed. Mind you this was at 8 pm! I started asking questions but the bartender was giving me an attitude so I left.

Started out badly when Open Table let us book a reservation for 11.45 when the restaurant does not open until 12. However great experience from there. The staff let us in early. Service was excellent and the food was quite good. We had two young children with us for a pre Pru Center event and they had a great time. Would recommend.

Overall we had a very good dining experience except for one little mishap. A waitress dropped a drink and the contents splashed all over my wife's jacket. Not a big deal because it is washable. Our only complaint was the waitress did not apologize right away. We mentioned this to our waiter (who was very apologetic) and the waitress who dropped the glass did come over to apologize and the manager gave us dessert on the house.

Service was worst we've had yet, and our group has been there a few other times where things were better. Our waiter was unfriendly and almost borderline rude. The food was just OK this time also. We also were overcharged because he said we didn't order "the right" burger to qualify for the $8.95 burger and brew special. We'll definitely go someplace else next time with our larger group. The place was empty, so you'd think they'd be friendlier and treat their customers nicer. Very disappointing.

Where to start? Reservation confirmation in hand we arived with a line out the door, assured that we would be seated promptly at our 6pm time. The place seemed as expected, small, croweded full of excited hockey fans. WRONG! We were greeted by a confused staff who quickly told us that the Fail house did not take reservations, after much pestering we finally got one of the hostess to even look at the email with the confirmation, who then looked at the computer and called over the other confused staff who instructed us to wait on the lengthy line JUST SO WE CAN PUT OUR NAMES DOWN, as tables were cleaned and other parties sat. Review? Not enough space, but word of mouth is a powerful thing: our weekend was spent trashing the Edison Fail House!

Although the menu wasn't extensive the food was better than average for pub food.Service was good and the beer selections were noteworthy. I noted this place as kid friendly but we went the night the circus was playing at Pru Center it may vary after a hockey game but the location is great if you're seeing an event.
