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!

    Our main dish mussel pot was cancelled for the reason that kitchen was unable to prepare it. It was 9 pm, 40 mins after we ordered it. We simply left the restaurant without placing new orders or complaining because that would just be waste of more time. Not the fault of servants, but overall management.

    100 Steps Kitchen + Raw BarResponded on June 26, 2022Good afternoon, My apologies for running out of the Mussel pot, it's one of our most popular dishes, and yesterday we sold more than usual. We order our seafood daily so it's always fresh. When we run low, we do notify our servers and also put a count in our computers. I wish you said something to us last night. Again sorry for any inconvenience!

    Excellent night out. They have branched out from mostly seafood to a mix of seafood, their signature oysters, their Parker House Rolls, with lamb, beef, and pork choices, and a pasta dish. A fabulous gourmet night out in Cranford.

    We were so glad it re-opened we missed it!! Food was amazing & our server Karen was delightful. It was also nice that the manager & owner walked around & made sure we were happy. It was our anniversary & we were treated to a sinful & scrumptious dessert. Thank you Jack ! We will definitely be back!

    Our new favorite restaurant in the area! We drove from the south to meet our parents there and what a great choice we made! Oysters were some of the best I’ve ever had in my life, and the special of the evening- the cod- was perfection! Everyone enjoyed the dinner, the Service was impeccable, and the ambience was beautiful!

    This was our second time dining at 100 Steps and it didn’t disappoint again. The oysters were fresh and tasty, the pork chop (per my husband) was one of the best he’s ever had and the cod catch of the day dish was delicious and light. We’ll definitely be back!

    Adding this place to our top restaurant recommendation in the area. Everything we had was fantastic including the service. Dinner rolls, oysters, beef carpacio, deviled eggs, Greek special yogurt appetizer, shrimp stuffed with crab, salmon, pork chop, and clams. Did I forget anything? Yummy! Don't forget it's BYOB but if you do forget they have a delivery service that delivers within 5 minutes.

    Loved this little gem in Cranford. We wanted something flirty for our date night and this place delivered that! We had a high top, the atmosphere was dim, airy, and fun. The service was great so was the food! My only suggestion here for the restaurant is to add a little more diversity to the menu.

    I was very disappointed by our experience. The oysters were -eh and very pricey as oysters tend to be. Out of 4 entrees only one was worth the price. The bouillabaisse was so bland. That was extremely disappointing. The lamb Pappardelle seemed to have the same sauce as another dish. The restaurant is very pretty, nice ambiance, nice wait staff but really overpriced, mediocre food. Wanted so much to love it.

    We have been several times and this is one of our favorite restaurants. However, we have never gone on a day where it was quite this busy. It was the Saturday evening before Mother’s Day at 6 PM. My mother is 91 and in a wheelchair. When we arrived at the restaurant they seemed unable to accommodate her easily in her wheelchair or to be able to find a table for us to sit at. We waited for a table for 20 minutes even though we had a reservation and were on time… And, there were many empty tables at the point. I realize that the restaurant is small, however, it really shouldn’t have been that hard. All they needed to do was pull out one chair so we could slide up to the table. Also, while the food is ordinarily spectacular, on this day it was just OK. The bread was stale, the food was cold, and the service was just OK. I highly recommend this restaurant, but maybe not for busy special occasions.

    Came to 100 Steps for husbands birthday and the evening was perfect. Our hostess Anya made our night fantastic!! She set us up with ice buckets and made sure we were comfortable before our server attended us. Anya also checked in on us periodically and always gave us a laugh! Our server Kiki was so attentive and made sure our meals came out perfectly timed. My husband had the Waygu burger and it was the best burger he’s had in his lifetime! We will definitely revisit 100 steps and recommend to friends and family

    100 Steps never disappoints. Had a ladies night dinner and everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully prepared. The apps were so tasty and many of us ordered the mussels which were a big hit on flavor and quantity. The only negative is the Octopus app was overpriced for the amount you receive. Love that the place in BYO, helps save on total bill! Truly a neighborhood gem.

    The best post-pandemic meal I’ve had so far! I know so many restaurants are struggling with labor, supply chain issues and inflation and surely sympathize. None of these challenges was apparent during our visit. The oyster sampler was outrageously fresh and briny. Especially those local Jersey varieties. Happy to have had a house made Parker House roll to sop up every last bit of the lamb ragu over pappardelle. An apple tartlet would have been simply perfect by itself but a scoop of vanilla gelato raised it to another level. Our server was helpful and attentive to our needs making for a great dining experience. We were happy to see a nice crowd for a Wednesday and wish continued success to proprietor Jack and the staff.
