Service was very slow and it wasn't even that busy.
We wanted a bottle of Prosecco but we were told that we couldn't buy a bottle - not sure why. but we could order glasses.
I wouldn't go out of my way to go to dinner there again.

Very disappointed since I was supposed to get 1000 points as a reward which is what was listed when I made the reservation but no points were rewarded.

Dinner was delicious and the ambiance was great. Our waitress was not the sharpest person but she was sweet. They could a busboy to run around to fill the water glasses and remove plates. Staff seemed light. All in all excellent and I would absolutely go back.

Interesting Menu Choices and presented very nicely. Menu hasn't really changed much over the last few years but they what's there they do well. Normally on Valentine's Day they are rushing the ordering, not allowing customers to choose their drinks or appetizers at their leisure but making them complete their total cocktail, wine, appetizer, entre order right away and all at once. This year we had a bit earlier reservation so it wasn't as rushed. Very nice atmosphere and decor in there and there is a really great eastern european market right attached in the same building - worth a visit.

Every dish that we ordered was really good and tasted awesome. They were super busy so the service wasn't the best. The waiter was good but I guess he didn't understand our order. Appetizers and Entrees were brought out together. It's didn't bother us that much but would have preferred if they came out in order.

The service was impeccable. The food was extraordinary. Our server David was intuitive, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was top quality, delicious and the epitome of upscale fusion. Their execution of food and service has made for one the of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Portions were on point for the price range. Who would have known you could find a gorgeously designed hidden gem like this behind a gas station off of a highway in NJ.

Must try Spicy Tuna cones and Black Garlic Short Ribs!

The restaurant was fine. The food was good.
It was a full house.
I do not live in the area so I probably will not be back.
We sat at the bar, which is what my husband and I prefer to do. And the bartender told us half way through out first time experience at this restaurant, that all the cigarettes in her apron broke. Really not something, we cared to know about.

Need to work on servers wine etiquette. When you purchase a bottle of wine over $50 they should know to bring it to the table and show you the bottle first. Then proceed to open it and pour it FIRST to the person that ordered the bottle for approval using a small amount (not half a glass). The poor girl had no idea, she was opening it while walking to the table, then proceeded to pour my wife half a glass and didn't understand why I took my wife's glass and smelled the wine and said ok you can pour, she said you didn't even try it. Anyway, the food was incredible, starting with the pretzel rolls, then the spicy tuna cones (brilliant idea by the way), then we had the beef short rib dinner and the short rib ravioli with truffle, WOW! The desert was the pistachio cake and that too was delicious. Will be going back for sure. Bravo!

Would love to see a regular salad on the menu. Lots of gluten free dishes but not many dairy free items.
As someone that can’t eat dairy and didn’t want spicy food, I did not find many options.
Food is very good . Presentation is very good.
Decor is very good. Well designed with acoustic absorption all around , which keeps the noise at a good level.
As they know, location behind a gas station is strange, but this place is always very good.

The food was excellent, however both my friend and I were very turned off by the fruit fly served to her in her drink. The staff did apologize and take the drink from the bill but we were justifiably cautious with our entrees and would have probably gotten more cocktails if that didnt happen. If not for the questionable cleanliness of the bar area the entire experience would have been stellar. Also, I personally enjoyed the music but the volume could have been lower and mess "club like"

Found this restaurant on Open Table while looking for somewhere to take my husband for his birthday; so glad I stumbled upon it.

Firstly, the pretzel bread they give you is delish. It comes with a mustard butter which I was very iffy about, but it was very good. My husband hates mustard and kept eating it as well.

For an appetizer, we got the zuppa da clams; one of the best white broths I’ve ever tasted.

For our entrees, my husband had their honey-stung chicken; it was fried chicken dipped in a delicious sauce with the perfect amount of heat , with white cheddar mashed potatoes and confetti vegetables. I had short rib ravioli in a truffle cream sauce. We both literally ate every bite off of our plate.

For dessert we shared the fried Oreos and cinnamon sugar donuts, which were served perfectly warm.

Absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a delicious night out!

The food choices were pretty interesting. I liked the options. I wish the server had more knowledge about the menu. I didn't choose an option because it was garlic based and chose another option. That one was full of garlic, too, and I had to switch with my husband. On top of that, the service was scarce. It was really slow, even in the beginning when the restaurant wasn't full. I'm not sure if we'll go back.

The only redeeming quality is the bartender. She was amazing and personable. We stayed at the bar after our dinner, and she made us feel welcome.

Just is a great restaurant that is local and qualified to be in the city. However, there were a few issues. Frist of all it is behind a BP gas station and VERY hard to find. Then we get a table which for the type of restaurant and pricing was extremely small. Then I tried to order drinks and as for three different drinks and they didn't have any of the liquors. Why have a bar. We settled on wine. Then came the food and everything was great. I would go back, but with lower expectations. No drinks and I now know where to go.

I like a leisurely service, but this was a little bit too slow. Much too much time waiting in between courses and especially after dinner to even get dessert menus. A 3 hour dinner for 4 people is just a little too long.

I also thought that the music was too loud. For the prices you are paying, I thought the atmosphere was much too noisy. I wanted a more quiet dinner.
