Attentive to details in every facet. Lock in a time, and be ready for a great experience in a down home and welcoming spot. Enjoy!
By far, the best restaurant in Princeton! We love it!!
Good place - far too expensive for its pedigree
Portions are small for the prices. Wine prices by the glass are ridiculous. Tables are way too close together.
Service was excellent.
fabulous food and atmosphere
Would completely recommend to friends and plan on returning somethings are a bit pricey but in the end everything was well worth it
I saw that they have corn ravioli on the menu an I knew we needed to go. My meal did not disappoint.
Excellent food/service great cocktails always our favorite place for a great dining experience
Even though One 53 is quite pricy, we have never had a bad meal there. Food is excellent and ambience is great! We only go there on special occasions.
Hands-down the best BURGER, I've ever had in my life! The rossini burger was out of this world - i am not one to usually order burgers, nor do i ever finish them and this burger was so good that i devoured it!
This was my first time dining there and I will definitely be going back. The atmosphere is upscale casual with an intimate vibe to it - definitely, recommend for smaller groups and date nights. Upon arrival, there is a complimentary valet which is a nice touch.
The bar was crowded when we arrived, so it was a tad noisy, but our table was available we didn't mind the fun vibe.
Food and service were excellent and they have an extensive wine and drink menu.
If you haven't been, i definitely recommend giving it a try.
Food decent but expensive. Portions so-so. Crowded tables and VERY noisy. Good service but won't be back.
Overall the food was excellent. The server could have stopped by a few more times to check if everything was ok. As some other reviewers have stated, the tables are very close to each other and it is impossible to have a private conversation.
One53 is one of our favorite restaurants, the food is consistently very good. We don't go very often because it is on the pricey side. The one thing that makes our experience a little less enjoyable is the feeling that we are being rushed. Last visit my appetizer plate was whisked away even though I hadn't put my fork down and my husband was still eating. I guess we're going to have to work harder at setting the pace.
Generally pretty good but was expecting a little more tbh. Nothing was bad, but aside from the desserts nothing stood out as exceptional....ok I lie....the cheeseboard for starters was great. The steak I ordered was claimed to be flavorful; it was moist and juicy but not massively flavorful. They served the steak with French fries.....not a bad idea but for me they were to thin and stringy and honestly over cooked. I think I’d have preferred an option for thin cut or real steak fries which for me was a better accompaniment. The rest of my party ordered pasta dishes. I tried a couple; my sons pasta carbonara was ok but the pancetta wasn’t as moist and tender as I’d have expected so he refused to eat that. Service was good. I think drinks are overpriced for what you get. So overall not bad but not mind blowing either. I don’t k is much about their meat sourcing strategy but I’d like to have known more.....to me it was a bit too much like “mystery meat” since they don’t provide that info on the menu. For the prices they charge I’d expect grass fed as a minimum. Give it a go but don’t expect exceptional.
Lovely dinner, again. Great restaurant!
There were flies flying around which was not very enjoyable while your eating inside a nice restaurant. It’s very tight because the restaurant is small and they feel the need to sit everyone on top of each other when the restaurant wasn’t that crowded. The food was just average drinks were good. The grilled pound cake was the best part of the meat. All in all i wouldn’t rush back to dine here again.
Lovely date night spot. Excellent cocktails and great service. Would go again. Definitely not a place for young kids, as they warn you.
Always love going to One53. Terrific service and burgers. Great local restaurant.
Was The Roast Pig Special, delicious, well presented, with good service and a good wine list
The special menus are fun and usually quite good. Last time our service was excellent in suggestions, explanations and a small special request. The food was good but sometimes a change up of a favorite is not as good as original. We like the sit inspite if the noise level but the noise keeps us from going there more frequently.
Dining floor is very cramped (unless you are dining in private room below)
The Bastille Day menu was available and offered many tempting options. We chose the sweetbreads, which were tender, well prepared and well-seasoned. As an entree, my wife chose the hangar steak, which was prepared medium rare and had a full and satisfying beef flavor. I chose the pork chop, which was beautifully cooked, tender and extremely tasty. Finally, for dessert we shared the creme brulee, which was among the best I have ever tasted.
This quickly became our go-to restaurant because of its friendliness, ambiance and incredibly good food. There is nothing we’ve ever had that wasn’t perfectly prepared, presented and delicious. Their drinks are great and it’s an added plus that they have free valet parking. Love this place!
Always a great meal with perfect service at One 53
We always have the best time here! The entire staff is so attentive and hospitable. One53 is our go to place for special occasions, date nights or when we are craving an awesome burger 😉
Great atmosphere. Best flatiron steak ever. Good wine and beer selection. Even the bread was great. The service was fair to ok. Despite being a Monday night, we were informed that we had a deadline of 715 to accommodate the next reservation. Whatever. Despite her deadline, it was difficult to get the attention of our waitress. However, other wait staff were helpful. Upon our departure after 730, the room may have been half full.
Can't wait to return but will go to the bar.
The food, service at atmosphere are always fantastic!
Absolutely outstanding experience at One53! Wife and I went for a “date night”. Starter salad was fresh and crisp. Fried chicken and crab cakes were excellent. The Mac and cheese and bacon sides were also just fabulous. Finished off with the chocolate bread pudding as the grilled peach wasn’t in season just yet. Next time! Also, the bartender knows what he’s doing...great Manhattan and sangria.
Atmosphere is great, cozy but didn’t feel like we were seated too close to neighboring tables. Some background noise but we were able to chat and hear each other just fine. Service was excellent, just the right amount of checking in without hovering, dishes cleared right on cue. We will absolutely be going back for more!
one of our go-to places for excellent food, ambience we like, and fine service. really a treat, always
The environment and service are excellent! Food here is wonderful. But it’s a little bit overpriced. But it is overall a great restaurant considering for celebrating special occasion.
Lovely place. Great service. Food was fantastic. Went there for my husband’s birthday.
Tables are too closely spaced...feel very close to other diners.
I have eaten here several times (it is in the top 5 of my NJ restaurants) and this is the first time the entree was only okay. The crab cakes while “lump” as advertised were lacking in taste. Everything else was delicious.
This is the third time I have dined at this wonderful restaurant. My only reservation is that the menu seemed a little less varied than in the past. Other than that criticism, I thought the food was delicious. It is a warm and inviting restaurant.
Outstanding given the creative approach to cuisine that can’t be found in neighborhood restaurants outside of NYC.
Great food. Great Service...slightly cramped but OK
First time there. Our waiter was amazing. The food and wine excellent!!
Dinner date, waiter was friendly, well informed, made good recommendations
Dinner was quite good. Service was excellent.
We were served next to a table where the patrons were well known to the staff and were first name friends with the staff.
We were treated no differently which indicates the high quality of service.
