    Great service and outdoor ambiance. My friend enjoyed her grilled cheese and goat cheese sandwich. French fries was also delicious. I had the rigatoni bolognese. The rigatoni is homemade and was good but cut into tinier pieces than I am used to; the bolognese sauce had little meat and needed more flavor. The manager and the waitress did get me a fresh sauce which had more spices in it so that made it better. They are very responsive to customers’ comments and I appreciate that.

    This is one of the nicest outdoor dining restaurants in the area! The spacing is good the chairs are comfy. Service is great. Food is excellent. Just one piece of constructive advice: get rid of the paperless ordering and payment. The waiters are very helpful with seniors on this 'new way'. Still...with such a nice dining environment, the paperless way seems to takeaway from the experience. Sorry...never even had to walk inside to give feedback.

    We are visiting our home state of nj and decided to go to what was the old Americana Diner. To our surprise the old manager has reimagined it into something new and energetic. It is beautiful. Food upscale, vibrant bar scene with more current music. I imagine it gets a younger crowd later in the night but something for everyone!! It is awesome!

    Absolutely outstanding restaurant...fabulous food, excellent beer selection and some really well made cocktails...we ate outside on the enclosed deck which was perfect...the staff is extremely friendly and what I really noticed and appreciated was the owner walking around and actually helping out the staff and checking with customers....this is by far my favorite place ! By the way, I also did a private party at the facility which was as close to perfect as you could get...my family and friends all raved about the quality.

    The experience of ordering online was not what we were expecting. User error caused servings to come at weird times. Food wasn’t the greatest. The young lady who explained things to us was nice. But she took more time explaining things to us than if we actually had a waiter. Won’t be going back.

    What can I say this restaurant is perfect. This is the place we keep coming back to. Very small menu and everything on it is done to perfection. The electronic ordering system works flawlessly. You hit the button to order and your food is out in minutes. Don’t order your appetizer and entree at the same time because you’ll get them together in less than ten minutes. Last time I sort of ironically ordered the 30 day dry aged prime strip, thinking that I’d be disappointed because I only get steak at the real steakhouses. To my delight it was a perfect steak. I’m a little bit of a sushi snob and even the sushi is top notch. If I had one criticism which was minor, I like the fish in sushi a little cooler. See you next weekend, and the one after that lol.

    it was good food but then again didn't like the fact that we don't order with a waiter...feels so impersonal...and also they don't get a due tip any more cause they really don't do much..We had to ask for more water, etc...no one was around...

    The food was quite good, with every dish being executed perfectly. The staff was attentive. The ambience is a little strange. I got the sense that later on in the evening it turns into more of a night club kind of place. There was a DJ set up playing music. They have a system where you can scan a QR code at your table, order your food as you want it, pay your bill, etc. without really even having to talk to the server. That just felt strange to me for a restaurant that represents itself as high-end. This is why, as I said, I have a feeling that after the early and older dinner crowd finishes, that there is a later younger crowd which the restaurant is gearing itself towards. Still, the food was excellent, and definitely worth checking this place out for.

    They need to bring back table service. Ordering from your phone is not seamless as they think. Each person can pay their own bill on your phone but then it seems to lump everyone at the table on the sawbill. Then someone has to come question you as to what you had like you’re just not tech savvy. Then they expect a 20% tip for what?

    Everything was great and I will definitely go back. I gave service 3 stars only because after being seated and waiting 20 minutes I had to call someone over. By that time I already placed my order through the online services. Once I did that the food came quickly and wait staff was great. I was just the initial. Again overall food was great and loved the ambiance and music.

    First time to this establishment since it was more of a diner. This is now a more advanced dinning experience. The updated decor and layout is really nice. The food is good and prepared well. The menu could be a bit more balanced and have a few more mainstream shareables. The drinks were great, as well as the atmosphere and to me one very important thing… it was spotless and very clean. I’ll be back for sure.
