Had brunch with a girlfriend and it was the perfect place to go for great food and ambiance. They didn’t bother us or rush us out and we got to enjoy multiple courses and conversation. The brunch burger was outstanding and the harvest salad was great too. The drinks were well made. Possibly best manhattan I’ve had.

Second Christmas Eve dining experience for us at the Inn. It’s become our go-to. We were seated immediately and service was impeccable. The pumpkin cheesecake was outstanding.

Our server Zrirka was extremely distracted and NOT the best server. Anyone that did serve us food such as our apps , threw them on the table without a word. Our server kept asking us why we didn’t have menus why our apps weren’t there yet, it was very bizarre. VERY disappointed with service. The BESt Service was from bus boys, host, support staff was excellent and cordial.

The bus boy kept taking our glasses and plates before we were done- clearly rushing us out of the place. We also walked out to the car and returned approximately 2 minutes later and they had already thrown away our left overs- we accidentally left them on the table (all wrapped). When we asked, the hostess would not ask the busboy. Crazy and it was not even that crowded. Won't be back to be rushed to order, rushed to eat, rushed to pay and rushed to leave.

Thanksgiving menu was terrific. Nice selection for everyone in our group. We were a bit disappointed that our group of six was seated at a table in the bar area rather than in one of the other quaint rooms. I probably should have requested a specific room/area when I reserved our table. Because we were in the bar area, our service was not as excellent as in previous visits. Our server did not check in with us very often so we were short on drinks, bread service, etc. it also took a while for our main entrees to come out. Will extend them some grace given it was a busy holiday.

I got a quiet table - which is what I asked for. I remember going pre pandemic for brunch and really liking it, so we went back. The menu was pared down, and the choices that were left weren't great. My salmon burger was burnt, my brothers chicken sandwich was bland (the aioli it came with was too spicy). The calamari was perfectly cooked, but bland without the red sauce. There are so many restaurants in bergen county, I probably won't be back.

Was slightly disappointed in the fact that the Sunday brunch was not the typical brunch . We had to order of a menu. I understand covid issues but something should have been said beforehand . Also the brunch menu was limited

Met for brunch with friends and we all had a wonderful experience. My steak and eggs were cooked perfectly. The mimosa was delicious. The ambiance is beautiful. However, the table for 3 was cramped and could have been larger.
