The food was great. The location in Newark is right on the main drag where a lot of new hot spots are opening up in this developing area. The ambiance was nice, laid back, and the noise level was reasonable.
My main complaint was the service, and especially the fact that the hostess never addressed my OpenTable reservation. When I later contacted OpenTable to see if the reservation even went through, they said it was still "pending," which means the restaurant never acknowledged receipt of the reservation. Also, the waitstaff were very quick to take our orders, almost to the point of rushing us, but after delivering the check, it was hard to locate them, so our needs and their needs were not at all aligned. Could be the time of day we were there (maybe they were trying to close).
I'll be back but ideally at an earlier time. The food is actually quite good, which is the real reason to go.
