We all enjoyed Tokaj. A few of the dishes were a bit salty but everyone enjoyed their dinner. We think Tokaji is a very good place. Very good job overall.

This was a find!! Excellent authentic Hungarian food in a charming setting, with violin music - couldn't ask for more. Generous servings - I had the roast duck which was delicious, with two duck legs!! Complimentary onion soup was included. Hungarian wine was delightful. Will return and will recommend to neighbors.

Being adventuresome and wanting to try something new, we tried Tokaj. Trusting my luck and my instinct for good European cuisine, we tried Hungarian food for the first time. I was overwhelmed with the joyous flavors, as it tasted much like country French, but decidedly better somehow. With the violin player, the authentic Hungarian servers and of course, the cooking, we were both taken away that evening somewhere unknown and wonderful. Of course, we made reservations for the following month, just to experience it all over again. Thank you Tokaj for a wonderful anniversary celebration, it being your first and my wife's and mine, our twelfth year! Keep up the good work, y'all are nagyszuru (great)!

When my son comes to visit me from Long Beach CA we always look for an interesting new restaurant to try. We enjoyed an exceptional meal this past Sunday evening accompanied by most attentive service. Portions are generous...go with a big appetite and set aside time to slowly relish every bite. A true gem serving authentic Hungarian cuisine

Tokaj was not what we were really expecting. While the food was good, it was more continental than Hungarian. Of those I dined with one had grouper on linguini, one a veal chop with potatoes and vegetables and the 3rd duck with rice and vegetables . All were good, but aside from the cabbage with the duck, nothing seemed Hungarian.

my dish (roast duck) was superb, not least because of the accompanying red cabbage and potatoes. unfortunately, my wife was not so happy--her pork was not tender, and we ended up sharing my copious portion of duck.

the wines were quite good and reasonably priced. the violinist could have been a nice touch, but his songbook was banal. all that was needed was the traditional Hungarian repertoire, but that was nowhere to be heard.

finally, the much-anticipated esterhazy cake was, alas, not very fresh. there's a good restaurant waiting to emerge here, but it failed to do so last saturday.

If you are looking for a charming, quaint and intimate restaurant with excellent food and service Tokaj should be on the top of your list. Our meal and service will be remembered for a long time. The pork tenderloin served on truffle toast and topped with foie gras was as tender as any tenderloin I have ever had. The seafood risotto was impressive with its large portion and jumbo scallops and writing this review makes me want to return tomorrow.

Had a fabulous meal...salads were divine. We had the Caesar and the Kale. If you are a vegetarian the Vegetarian Risotto was delicious...tofu was nicely seasoned. My dinner mate had the roasted duck and he raved about it. We had a nice dry Hungarian white wine ...Irsaia Oliver wonderful. The only thing we wouldn't order again was the walnut, Eszterhazy Cake. We just didn't like the taste or texture. No worries, there are several other desserts to try when we return.
