100 Steps Kitchen + Raw Bar is a spot where you can not only have a great meal, but a spot that functions as a bit of a social club too - a place to enjoy remarkable food + great company. One of our favorite parts of the night has been watching our customers interact - running into neighbors and friends, meeting up with family, or just enjoying a night out together - it's our own little social club.

The "raw bar" side - well that comes from wanting a nice, traditional oyster bar to belly up to and dive into raw oysters, clams, and other great seafood.

The two meet in our new spot, 100 Steps Kitchen + Raw Bar - welcome!

100 Steps is a BYO!

    As always, 100 Steps doesn't disappoint. The food was delicious and the service top notch! Both servers seemed to anticipate our every need and that was much appreciated after a long day! Scallops were beyond delicious and steak was cooked to perfection. Great Valentine's Day dinner!

    I went for Valentine Day and they had prie fix dinner. I thought it was a little over priced for what we got. I did not like the first course. It was so tiny something salmon. I had gone to 100 steps few years ago. thought quality of food has gone down.

    Terrific dinner! We hadn’t been in some time and were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed the evening. Our server was terrific and everything we ordered was great: oysters, Moroccan spring rolls, duck ragout, and the scallops dish. Good portions and great presentation. Love that it’s byob too!

    We had an excellent dinner last night at 100 steps. We brought our ten year old with us and the waitress was very accommodating to his questions and needs. I ordered the mahi and my husband had the duck ragu and we shared the mussels pot as an appetizer (it used to be an appetizer and now it's an entree- order it as an app or a meal, you don't want to miss this dish. Our son had the Wagyu burger and it was fantastic. The only thing we did not like is it was very loud - several large parties and celebrations, so it was loud for good reason, but we were expecting a quieter night with our son who has some sensory needs. Love this place and can't wait to go back soon!

    Four of went early on a Friday evening to take advantage of the half price oysters. I did not have any, but they ordered a second tray because they were so good. Everything single thing we ordered was outstanding. The appetizers, and the mussels, burger and short ribs. The waiter was just lovely. We arrived at 4:30 and left at 7:30 and had an awesome time. OH! And, the lava cake and assortment of ice cream was incredible! Worth the calories!

    The food and staff were excellent. I had known that we would have the high top table but originally they put us next to the kitchen. So for New Year’s Eve, we really didn’t care for that. So we wound up sitting at the bar all in all, I would definitely go back, but my reservation would not be for a high top table.

    The overall experience was disappointing from having young immature, hostess that doesn’t greet you the right way. Portions are super super small for the price. We ordered a Bronzino. We barely had two strips that were super thin that got lost in this extra large plate with no extra items. Walked away spending a lot of money and was still hungry. Atmosphere was good and the food ok but the value is not there. I would suggest going somewhere else.

    Excellent gourmet meal in Cranford. Oyster selection was outstanding. The scallops crudo were a nice surprise. Very tender and just the right spice. The mussel pot was also fantastic. And don't forget to try their homemade gelato. This was an A+ meal all of the way. BYO too!

    The food, service and ambience was generally good. But the restaurant got loud and we waited for 75 minutes for our entrees to come out. By the time they arrived, we were grumpy and hungry and weren’t able to appreciate the excellence of the food. Not did we stay for dessert.

    Have been there many times and have always loved the food Noisy as always The only problems were the small portions Ordered an octopus appetizer which at $29 should have been more than a couple of bites Had tuna which at $41 should have been more than 3 small pieces Someone else had the monkfish and said it was also too small The owner asked how dinner was and was quite dismissive of our comments

    The value of the happy hour raw bar is excellent and the oysters were delicious. My hubby had the braised short ribs and they were melt-in-your-mouth culinary perfection! My pappardelle was delish too. A fun, local byob bistro that we’ll definitely return to soon!

    Terribly small portions for overpriced food. Terrible value for dollar. Service was great. No complaints. Just not worth the money. And I’m not a big eater but $17 for a salad that literally had 8 pieces of kale and 3 razor thin beet and pear slices was just offensive. Everything was just tiny and not delicious enough to get away with such a tiny serving size.

    Upon my arrival to the eating establishment. There was a sense of sophistication in the environment. Upon being greeted by the hostess, they promptly found my reservation and quickly sat my date and I. They forgot to give us the bread, but upon its arrival, our taste buds began to go into paradise with the texture and the softness of the bread. We ordered the octopus as an appetizer but it never arrived. However, the delicious divine taste of the wagyu burger and the short ribs was out of the world. The oysters smelled fresh as well as their taste. The cons of our experience was outweighed by the deliciousness of the food. The dessert was everything but mid. My date had the homemade gelato, let me tell you, the taste my buds fell into was exquisite. I recommend to everyone to try this place at least once in their time near cranford. You will not regret it
