Great place for a special occasion. A menu with locally sourced ingredients, where possible.

Our second visit and the food was so spectacular again! What an important addition to the Sussex county area and we plan to make this a regular spot. The service is warm and attentive and the lovely rooms are simple but elegant. Now for the real reason to visit - the duck breast on the menu is absolutely my new favorite dish and my husband and I devoured it quickly. The menu is spare and seasonal and changing - we’ve loved the pastas, pea soup (omg), and of course that duck so interesting seasoned and accompanied by pomegranate sauce, farro, etc- the combination is sublime and exquisite! Our thanks to the creative chefs for blessing us with their talents- look forward to the patio!

The food was outstanding. Just the right attention to the table. We were upstairs and noise level was a bit loud, however everyone was so excited to be out to such a nice restaurant.

High quality restaurant with superior chef’s in the kitchen. The duck was a top 5 entree. Wonderful

First and foremost, excellent food by top notch chef (s). The menu needs to expand. Service needs to gain experience and start thinking like a customer, instead of worrying about thinking like a restaurant owner, or worse yet, the State of NJ.

Have to offer a salad course. A regular foie gras course would really be terrific.

Again, want to stress that this is a very good restaurant that is just figuring things out. When they relax and improve the service, and expand the menu, it will go from good to great. The $114 ribeye is a step in the right direction, but this is not the correct steak. Need a prime porterhouse at that level.

The experience was excellent. The staff was very friendly and efficient. It is in an old home so is very charming. My only issue with the food was the scallops were a touch sandy although very fresh and it did not stop me from eating it. We each had three courses, was a touch too much for us. We would probably share next time. Overall very nice although pricey but everything is very special and you get what you pay for. Be adventurous. Also I was told that they change the menu every few weeks. I am a fish lover can’t wait till next time.

Probably the best gourmet cuisine you'll find in these parts. Pricey, and worth it. Best duck I ever had. Do remember to BYOB.

Excellent food but the portions were very small - three ravioli! Also, the young servers were not experienced. When you go out to eat and spend a lot of money the service should be better. I like the BYOB status of the restaurant.

Great new addition to fine dining in Newton NJ. We need more restaurants like this, I'm tired of red italian only.

Loved the way they updated the place, service was friendly and attentive, food was beautifully presented and oh-so-delicious. Portions were just right, and I felt like I'd gone on a culinary adventure right here in my Sussex County backyard.
