Hubby had sword fish - he said it was excellent. Daughter had turkey burger - and shared calamari with her dad, both were excellent.
I had corn chowder as appetizer, it was so good I ordered a quart to take home with me.
Here’s the not so good. I ordered the pasta dish with mushrooms. It just lacked taste., kind on the dry side.
Maybe a little more wine added would have been helpful.

We had our brother and his wide in for dinner and I chose Victory Park Tavern on a friend’s recommendation. We enjoyed the food a lot. My margarita was excellent. Loved the eggplant meatball appetizer. I had the chicken under a brick (no bricks in sight) which was tender and topped with asparagus and small roasted potatoes on the side. My sister-in-law opted for a large salad with grilled shrimp and almonds, peaches, goat cheese in a light vinaigrette. She said it was great. Desserts were salted caramel cheesecake, bread pudding and a brownie sundae. Excellent coffee also. We will return.

Everything we ordered was delicious. From appetizers (fabulous pork dumplings and an outstanding mussel dish) to the salads (chock full of good stuff) to the entrees with fresh and light sides full of Jersey fresh produce. Will definitely return.

Overall great vibe with the open bar and outside seating. Host was incredibly helpful and and an active participant in the dining room. I would give him the highest marks. I ordered the tuna tower which was fabulous but definitely didn't see the need for the waffle chips that came with them. Just seemed mismatched. The bread that was served was hard but the rosemary butter was delicious. Shared the 16 ounce steak which was cooked perfectly. I was looking forward to the sauteed spinach but was too salty to eat. We had a side of the garlic mashed potatoes, which were tasty. Shared the bread budding which was good. I liked the strawberries nestled in there. Also the waitress was lovely and sweet.

Such a great place! Everything was outstanding! We had the steak and the scallops special for dinner. Steak was cooked perfectly (medium rare). The scallops were huge. Tuna tartare (appetizer) was the best I've ever had. The burrata salad (appetizer) was also delicious. Service was top notch! Drinks were yummy! Not one bad thing to say...

The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive. We had a waitress in training and she never missed a beat. We typically request a lot of menu substitutions and nothing was a problem.. The drinks were also delicious . Adequate portions and a very comprehensive menu. We had a very broad age group and everyone loved their meal

I must say I was very pleased with the service especially the attentiveness of the staff. My burger,probably one of the best I’ve had in quite a while. It was juicy and flavorful and they give you a nice portion. The fries were unique and especially delicious. I had a Tangueray and tonic and it was superbly mixed, which is the right amount of gin lime and tonic.

First, food was very good. Here is why I will not go back. As soon as we arrived we were told we have 90 minutes to finish as another reservation was coming to that table. It was also written on the menu. We were told not to worry that this would be enough time. So immediately we felt rushed and did not like the pressure. The food came out timely but the entree was served 70 minutes into our alotted time. This was also my wife's 70 birthday and they had been notified. We did not make it on time and quite frankly didn't care. Nothing was said but it was just not necessary they seemed to have other tables open. They should inform you when making the res. Too bad food was good and service was otherwise fine.

While we are glad we had a positive result in service and food categories, we're disappointed we missed the mark with making you feel welcome. Our intention was never to make you feel rushed.

Just love it here. It's nice without being stuffy, casual without being divey. Am obsessed with the fact that they offer an allergy friendly menu and go out of their way to accommodate. Stephanie was our server this evening. She was pleasant and prompt and she interacted with my son, ensuring that even my three year old had a pleasant experience, which just melted this Mama's heart to bits. Thank you for being our go-to spot.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Friendly and professional waitstaff. The food is cooked to order and very fresh. We were two for dinner and had the ahi tuna stack which was a very pretty presentation with homemade waffle chips, avocado and fresh herbs. Highly recommend. The lobster pasta dish was also fresh and well seasoned.

What is not to LOVE here? A neighborhood tavern feel, bistro cooking, terrific staff (thank you Donna M!): top it off with nice wine by the glass selections and off the hook main plates and YOURE GOLDEN. Loved the French style chicken under a brick and the burrata and roasted peppers was a great starting point. Come early & wait to sit outside... terrific ambience with victory park across the street.
