Service was impeccable. Food awesome! Need more vegan options. Kind of pricey! Wine list was extensive. Drinks not impressive.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday on Friday evening. Overall it was quite good. As far as food, the yellowfin tuna crude was out of this world good. Service was good as well. However, there are certain things one expects from a high end place like this that were missing. Most notably was the failure of the host or server to transport our drinks from the bar to the table. Making us carry our drinks, possibly spilling along the way, was eyebrow raise worthy. Perhaps it’s a policy or perhaps it was poor training - either way it was the one thing that detracted from an otherwise very good experience

Been here before, just a great place for a romantic dinner or a bigger event with friends and family.

Great food and service, tremendous wine list.

Arrive during the day to see the property and stay late to enjoy all the amenities.

I love Ninety Acres, this time had a mishap with the front desk upon check in, since they cancelled my Open Table reservation. I love the food, the ambiance and the wine collection. Thankfully, Open Table credit me with the points after I reached out to them. Other than that, a wonderful dining experience. Since we were in a group, we order a few appetizers/dishes for sharing: The 3 cheese platter, fries with aoli , 2 pasta Bologna and scallops was more than enough food for the four of us.

Excellent and unique venue. The staff was extremely cordial albeit just a bit inexperienced. The bar staff was excellent.
I was a little disappointed as we were a large group and we were not allowed to have some order pre fix if everyone was not willing to do so.

First time. Did not disappoint. I love the casual elegance and attention to detail. We did the 3 course meal and loved the presentation and time allotted in between meals. There was no rushing. And I love that they did not take my plate away until my husband was done with each serving. The food was delicious. We will be back.

We have been to Ninety Acres many times and have loved it. The restaurant is lovely, the staff is very professional and nice. The time, however, we were disappointed in the food and the service. It just was not what we come to expect from this restaurant. The service was very good, but not what it used to be. We had to flag people down to get a refill on iced tea, no one cleared the table of empty glasses and such. The water was only refilled once..used to drink a sip and the glass was full again. This is what we had come to expect of this restaurant. The food was very disappointing...lacked taste and the wow factor. We are thinking a new chef perhaps.
Whatever, has changed, please go back to the way you were.....we will try one more time thinking this was an off night.

We are foodies... It was so good, I can’t wait to go back. Drinks at the bar were great, food was delicious, and service was fantastic. It’s my second time there and won’t be my last. We did the prix fixe menu so it was 3 small plates, each one was better than the previous.

We visited Ninety Acres to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was our first time. We liked the relaxing and elegant atmosphere. This is a place where you can dress up nicely and will blend in. Interestingly we had a whole group of attendants serving different part our orders. The place has a nice bar with some innovative cocktails and excellent wine selection with a nice wine rack display. The food was plated nicely and was excellent. We had trout and venison for main dish. The only thing I think could take some improvement is adding more options to the dessert menu. Overall we are very happy that chose Ninety Acres for cocktails and dinner. We will definitely return. Recommended.

I had been wanting to go here for some time, after seeing it in numerous articles about NJ dining. Everything looked perfect and I was so excited to celebrate my family birthday dinner here! Unfortunately it didn't even come close to meeting expectations. I had read others recent reviews and hoped they were wrong, but I have to agree with most of them.

The service was poor, and the courses took a very long time to come out. There were more people working than I've ever seen in a restaurant, yet we had to wait 40 minutes for our order to even be taken. The large amount of space between courses really ruined it for us (about 25-30 minutes). The servers were friendly and nice, I don't want to misrepresent that fact. Our waitress even brought out a little torte with a birthday candle at the end, which I did think was a nice and thoughtful touch.

My cousin had to go outside to make a phone call and the valet guys were standing in the vestibule apparently cursing up a storm. Not a good look.

The food was ok, good even. But nothing memorable. The portions were small and with the large amount of space between the courses I was still hungry when we left, and with a $400+ bill this should not be the case. The dessert menu was odd for all of us, so we skipped that. I went home feeling disappointed and unsatisfied.

The restaurant is loud, and not cozy like I expected for a historic location. I was looking forward to an amazing evening, and to having a new amazing restaurant to go to, but this entire experience was lackluster at best.

I really like the food at 90 Acres but the service was unacceptable for any restaurant and especially for such a high-end restaurant. The waitstaff kept trying to get our party to order more food and in general did not have any finesse in how they interacted with us. One person at our table ordered a $20 glass of wine and asked if he could get a larger glass for the red wine and the waiter argued with him.

They also did not time everything appropriately trying to take away plates before we were done.

The restaurant is gorgeous and the food has been very good over the years but the poor service makes a $500 meal + $100 tip for very poor service not worth it (for a party of 5.)

We had 4PM reservations, we were served in a prompt manner, but my wife's Wagu steak and risotto were room temperature.....
Whenever that happens, it is very disappointing. The anniversary dinner loses its charm. The staff member offered to have it corrected, but that ruins the whole concept of sharing a meal together.......

Very nice restaurant, amazing cocktails & wine list. Food is good, but I have had some dishes that were too salty. I have only tried the prix fixe and the bring me food menu, so I cannot speak to the quality of their bar food. The location is beautiful and the ambiance is warm and romantic. However, it is a rather loud restaurant.

Pretty sure I won't be back after this last visit. We were seated in a location so dark that I couldn't read the drink menu, or wine list. Yes, I could have pulled out my cell phone and used the flashlight like I saw others do, but that's goofy. I am sure the restaurant staff have seen flashlights every night, and multiple times. So, why continue the practice of darkness? The Tuna Tartare appetizer was very fresh and tasty, but the Foie Gras was a big disappointment. The citrus and the acidity was so over the top that it ruined the delicate flavors of the fois gras. Plus, it was served so cold that the flavors were hidden. My wife's main course was very enjoyable but the Roasted Chicken wouldn't earn one-star in my book. It was advertised as Griggstown but the meat was totally flavorless. The sauce that came with the chicken detracted even further. The greens were pasty and grainy and the sauce overall failed to add dimension. We skipped dessert. Then, when you get the bill, and look back on the meal, there shouldn't be regret. Yet, there was lots of it.
