Unfortunately one of my party was seated on the end of our table - and every single time any worker in the restaurant passed by, they bumped into her chair. She found it to be very annoying, and I don't think she'll be dining at 153 any time soon.

A bit off the beaten track from Princeton, but plenty of free parking and the food and service were first rate.

Great little restaurant, with fantastic food, friendly service, good bar tender. Can’t go wrong. A bit pricey- but great place for a special dinner!

Our first time dining at this place. It was a pleasant experience. Warm ambiance. Server was friendly and helped us with vegetarian choices. Would surely recommend to anyone looking for fine dining. Would like to see more veg pasta options.

This is our third trip to One 53. It’s starting to become our go to Date Night place. Great assortment of cocktails and beers. Great monthly specials. This trip we shared the mushroom soup with chile oil. Very creamy with just enough zing to keep you interested. Our server split the bowl for us without requesting it. Which was a welcome surprise.

We ordered the December special veal chop and Monkfish puttanesca for entrees. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meals. Both were cooked perfectly and had loads of flavor.

For dessert we shared the pound cake iced cream sandwich and some cappuccino. Really great way to end the meal.

The only partial downside to this particular meal was being seated near the rear exit. It was extremely cold outside and while the exit wasn’t supposed to be used by normal guests a few people needed to use it and it sent a major chill into the restaurant each time.

We will return.

We are long time fans of 153 and have been coming here since it opened. This restaurant is a welcome addition to the area, the food is consistently good, the drinks are amazing...(shout out to Craig, bartender extraordinaire!). We have brought many friends and family to experience 153 and it never disappoints. Finally, the entire staff, from the hostess to the waiters, are always warm and professional. We look forward to our next visit!
