My wife and I have eaten at Pairings at least eight times for dinner and have never been disappointed. 2 entrees and 2 apps about $100 w/o tip, but worth it.
food was outstanding with large portions.
excellent,attentive staff and management .
will definitely return!
Very good food great atmosphere. Quite pricey so make sure you review prices
First time to visit this restaurant and were very pleased with our choices...looking forward to a return visit.
Everything about the dining experience was lovely from being given the option to pick our own table to having the waiter decant our wine to the offer of an umbrella to get to our car in the pouring rain after dinner.
I have known Carol & Vinnie for many years. Their attention to detail is impeccable. They tend to under promise and over deliver. If you are looking for a high value culinary experience, this is your place.
Loved It! Last minute dinner after dropping off family in Newark for a concert. Didn't realise it was a BYO but still, we had a lovely evening with our sparking water. Our waitress was delightful as was our food.
Our dinner out with two other couples was great!! Pairings is BYOB so that helps with the price. I had the coconut shrimp app and the sesame crusted yellowfin tuna entree. The shrimp were large and delicious and the yellowfin tuna was spectacular.
Three people in our group had the seafood(I don’t remember what the fish was) special with scallops and loved it.
Ambiance is very relaxing and pretty. It was a great night!
Always welcoming and excellent! Definitely worth the trip to Cranford.
As always, Carol and VINCENT are the perfect hosts.
We have been coming here for years and are never disappointed.
The food is outstanding and service impeccable.
Nice dining at reasonable prices, elegant for the suburbs. The staff is attentive and aware of food allergies and other dietary restrictions. The dining room is pleasant and the food is pretty good. It is bring your own.
Lovely dinner with friends. Delicious beet salad and tuna for the main. Yum!
Great food and wonderful customer service.thank you and i will come again.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The staff made a special effort to help us celebrate in style.The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We didn’t realize when we made our reservation that Wednesdays they offer a Prix Fix approach to their menu. We were thrilled that they did! It was a great way for us to try several more items on their menu-all fabulous! The meal included lots of extras, too, and the fixed price and the fact we could bring our own champagne, made it an excellent value for our money.
Union County is really lucky to have this fine gem of a restaurant here for us. We have eaten in many highly rated restaurants around the world and Pairings is right up there at the top with its sophisticated menu, attentive service and elegant atmosphere. We are already planning our return trip.
A lovely place to celebrate my birthday. The food is delicious, service is excellent. One of my favorite places to eat!
Been to Pairings many times and have always had great meals. It’s not cheap, but you pay for this level of food and service. I think it’s one of the best restaurants in the State
OUTSTANDING! Anniversary dinner was awesome...
Header on menu read “Happy Anniversary”... our desert plate had Happy Anniversary” written in chocolate sauce as well...and as if that wasn’t enough of special attention the staff and service were second to none. Decor was upscale, and the comfortable seating was upholstered love seat style benches! The menu selection was an eclectic mix of tantalizing dishes which were far beyond the norm. A true pleasure to the senses, presentation was incredible. Certainly an evening to remember, and we look forward to returning for another sumptuous meal. Well done!
We’ve been here many times. Always a pleasant experience. One of our absolute favs!
We ate at Pairings on a Wednesday night when they only have a 4 course dinner for $40. The food was delicious and the portions generous.
The restaurant is beautiful and the cushioned banquette style seats were very comfortable.
Our waiter, Juan, was great and provided excellent service.
We will be back.
Have visited twice; will definitely return. Very nice BYO with varied menu. Service was attentive, not rushed. Server asked about allergies, we had some dietary restrictions that were accommodated. Our special occasion was memorialized with custom menus. Food was delish... Wonderful evening!
Fantastic restaurant that never disappoints. One of the BEST around!
Food is always delicious. Enjoyed the beet salad. It could have been my entree. Quite large. Gorgeous presentation and scrumptious. The short ribs are wonderful. It's hard for me to try anything else.G years raved about the chicken and the duck entrees. Menu prices have gone up considerably. May need to make this a special occasion spot vs our more frequent visits.
First I will start with the service, it was very nice to see basically kids that are just so well trained in their job and they do it well. Very pleasant, always on the move, scanning all the tables to see if there is anything that needs to be done, everyone working together. The food was just great, we had the short ribs and a pork chop and I can honestly say I never had a pork chop that good. I didn't know it could be that good. The sorbet palate cleanser is just out of the world, I would have bought a gallon of it on the spot. Just a home run all around.
We love this restaurant! I recently celebrated my birthday at Pairings and the food was delicious and the service perfect!
A wonderful restaurant with excellent service and food and a delightful upscale ambiance.
Everything was perfect - exquisite food and amazing service.
Everything was great! The food was delicious and the staff was attentive and friendly, always checking to make sure we had everything we needed. We’ll be back!
Food was amazing. Friendly host at the door
First time here - all 4 of us agreed the food was phenomenal. Short ribs were fantastic.
Have been to Pairings many times and we are never disappointed! Great food, great service!
We had a wonderful evening and everything was amazing.
Elegant from the minute you walk in. What a lovely meal and overall experience we had for my husband's 62nd Birthday Dinner. They made a special menu (with his name on it) in honor of the day, and the Wait-Staff were so warm and welcoming, knowledgable, and quick to accommodate anything we needed. Great environment - elegant, but not stuffy.
Food highlights were the seared tuna entree, and the pork belly / grilled octopus and chorizo combo with potatoes. Dessert was also wonderful - some combination of mandarine mousse with dark chocolate. Additionally we asked for a scoop of their homemade (berry?) sorbet that was out of this world in combination with everything.
Looking forward to coming back again soon!
Always a great meal!!
Outstanding meal and service (the most tender pork chop I ever had!!) - lovely decor, too! I look forward to a return visit
Food made out to perfection plus very decent price.
The owners are adorable. The ambience is romantic. The food is good and a good value 9due to BYOB. A little loud and service was a bit slow but I will give it another shot bc of the great service exhibited by the owners.
We are never disappointed when we dine at Pairings. We went to celebrate a combination Valentine's Day and anniversary. If they know ahead of time what you are celebrating they print a special menu for you with the occasion listed at the top. The food here is always perfect and the service is impeccable.
Pairings continues to impress with an outstanding dining experience, from the quality and preparation of the food, to the attention to details and excellent service.
