Another great dinner at Irving Inn Wine House. The chef is amazing! Love the seasonal menu and the different flavors he combines. Can't wait to see what he has in store for the winter menu.
Always an excellent meal. One of my favorite "special" restaurants.
Been meaning to dine at The IRVING Inn for some time and we were not disappointed.
Love the ambiance. It felt like we had a private table!
Service was excellent w a smile!
Craft cocktails and beers were great and delicious.
Apps were incredible. Stuffed cabbage, cheese plate and garlic shrimp - wow!
Mains included Kansas City steak, Pork Chop, Chicken Paillard ans a pasta dish all cooked to perfection and delicious sizable portions!
Split a coconut piece of cake for dessert.
What a great night!
RAHWAY is really coming along as well and we want to try the bar next time!
Great food and service. Will definitely be back.
Excellent ambiance and setting by being seated outside. Food was outstanding and the service excellent. First rate evening. Highly recommended.
Great food and service. Would definitely go back!
All was good but our table was near some chatting people.
excellent food in a great venue
Lawrence is a genius in the kitchen.
Food was delicious. Its a great place however service was slow but maybe the waitress had an off night-she was very graciousand sweet.
Good place to meet people to catch up especially if you haven't seen them in awhile. You can actually hear your table which is fantastic. I think this would also make for a great first date place as well. The food was very good and the service was great.
Food was fantastic, the lamb burger was one of the best I have ever had. Ashley our server was also very attentive and excellent!
Wonderful dinner with the most deliciously prepared combinations of flavors.
The food was amazing! Would definitely go again.
The food and service was absolutely wonderful. As the restaurant filled up it became very loud. So much so we could not have a conversation without leaning in to hear. I would recommend some noise abatement panels. Other than that I highly recommend it.
We loved the historic building and the quiet ambiance inside the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was absolutely incredible. From salad to dessert, definitely one of the best meals I’ve ever had. My new favorite!
Cauliflower steak is amazing!
Food was great and it was a nice and quiet place. Definitely will go there again
Wonderful experience. Third time there.
Great food options!
Dinner was delicious and the atmosphere was charming. Though a number of tables were filled, conversation was easy and the background music pleasantly low. Service was excellent. I will absolutely recommend your restaurant to my friends and look forward to a return visit soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed a nice meal at The Irving Inn Wine House from start to finish. The cocktails were spot on, specifically the Manhattans and everything tasted very good! Our server was a gem and the intimacy of the restaurant lends itself to a wonderful experience.
The food was delicious, the best meal I’ve had in quite a while. Will definitely go back again.
Very nice place. Quiet in the dining room but noisy in the bar. Food was very good for what I expected. Would absolutely go again especially for hamburger and fries. TASTY.
Lexii is the best, Joanie is a close second
A quaint, lovely setting for a delicious meal. Recently discovered this beautiful dining restaurant and have eaten there three times in the last two months. Never disappointed! Friendly and attentive service and scrumptious food. What could be better!
The Irving Inn is a winner for sure. I dine at many fine establishments in N.J., and they have it down pat. They have someone amazing cooking in the kitchen because everything I have eaten there has been fabulous (and this time the 6 of us ordered almost the entire menu!). The drink and wine menu are approachable, and all mixed drinks were to die for. The service is on point; kind, professional, unobtrusive, and friendly. Lastly, it is a nice looking restaurant with dim lights and a rustic feel, cozy yet romantic enough for a date. I am sure it is no coincidence that the food and service next door at the Irving Inn social was just as spectacular. Try them both. You will not be disappointed!
We had a wonderful experience! Quickly becoming one of my favorites!
Delicious eats, amazingly friendly staff. I really enjoy my visits to the Irving Inn and Irving Social.
Our meal was delicious as always. The Chicken Pillard is my favorite. Service was excellent. Drinks were very good. One of my favorite restaurants
Was not what i expected probally will never go back
Amazing food with reasonable prices but when we were there the staff had their hands full with a holiday party. The service and the timing on receiving our dishes suffered as a result. However I would definitely go back and try them again. The steaks were incredible. Drinks were delicious. They had creative, original appetizers that were executed and presented well.
This is not in our usual area. But, I would make the effort to come back. Each course would easily be in the top 10 of dishes i've had in NJ. A wonderfully varied appetizer menu with some unique offerings like roasted bone marrow, cauliflower steak or wild mushroom marsala in polenta, followed by some exceptionally well prepared entrees. Pork Chop was perfectly cooked and flavorful but it was the braised cabbage and cherries that made the dish special. One of the best chicken paillards around.
Don't miss the house made coconut bread pudding, its world class.
It's an old type historic inn that is tiny at best, but smells great and feels cozy. If you are anywhere in Union County, don't miss this place!
One of my favorite restaurants. Elegant yet casual. Food is creative and delicious. Drinks are fabulous. And service is always attentive. Great place.
Great Food! Great Service! Great Cocktails! Great Atmosphere! Warm and inviting Staff!!!
This restaurant has an excellent menu for vegans/vegetarians
Recommended by a friend, very pleased with my experience. Friendly and attentive host. Food was very good. Had a pork tenderloin with corn pudding that was cooked perfectly. My party all had chicken paillard that was also great. The menu is creative yet authentic. Will certainly return.
Loved this place. Sat outside by the bar. Bartender was awesome. Great drinks. We decided to eat at the bar. Food was delicious. Will def go back.
This restaurant has a lot of potential but was a huge disappointment in the area of service. Very cool decor and the food was pretty good but the service was terrible. Took at least 45 minutes to get someone to take our order and the staff seemed very stressed.
Patio was a great place for dinner. Service and food both excellent
Love the place, nice and quiet. Great service and food.
