Rats is the most spectacular place in NJ!! A true MUST SEE!!!!
The ambiance alone makes its such an inviting and special place.
A true hidden GEM!!!
Beautiful setting, food was very good...will definitely come back again!
We had a great lunch with an amazing view outside during Covid-19. We were disappointed that we could not access the restaurant from the garden and had to exit and drive all the way around the grounds to part and go to the restaurant.
Servers are wonderful. They really take care of their customers and they do well to know about the food they are serving. It was a lovely experience for me and my loved one.
small menu, beautiful decor. best onion soup ever!
Charming restaurant, good food, and the perfect conclusion to a visit to The Grounds for Sculpture.
A lovely ambience and a great way to end a day of touring the grounds.
Absolutely stunning environment with outside dining views of a replica of Monet’s Garden at Giverny.
French cuisine to match the ambiance was perfectly prepared, delicious and beautifully presented.
Service was excellent.
I dine out often at this was a very special experience on every level.
Look forward to returning whenever I am back in the area.
Wish there were one nearer to me.
The entire ambiance, both inside and outside, is enchanting. From moment you enter the driveway the grounds and touches of whimsy are delightful. We ate on the outdoor patio which overlooks a picturesque pond. It was absolutely dreamy.
The service was impeccable, the Chardonnay chilled to perfection, our appetizers and entrees sublime. We can’t wait to go back!!!
Beautiful setting outside to enjoy a late relaxing lunch. Food was delicious and ample quantities.
Service was great - they provided a paperbag for your mask so you won't have to place it on the table. Food choices were limited - I had the branzino which was perfectly cooked on a small bed of quinoa (wished it was a slightly larger helping) while my dining companion had the Rats burger which was average.
We did not receive any Open Table points for this reservation.
Great service, great food! Thanks
I went to brunch with my family. From start to finish everything was excellent! We will definitely be dining at Rats again!
We loved the restaurant. We are vegetarians and although the choices were limited for us, everything we ate was delicious. The service was great.
Another perfect evening at Rats. Food was delicious, weather beautiful, nice and warm with the heaters on the patio, service as always outstanding! Great way to enjoy the last few nights of summer!
Rat's is one of my most favorite places to dine. The food is fresh and well prepared. Definitely an upscale dining experience with romantic views. The service is impeccable.
What a wonderful place to have a meal before or after walking the grounds. You could not ask for a more beautiful setting.
Nice restaurant but not as outstanding as we had remembered it.
Thank you for your comment. Please join us again in the future
The setting is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful views and a lovely fire. Ambiance was perfect. The drinks are great and so is the service. My chicken salad was a little dry and bland. Would definitely get something else next time. Overall great experience!
Thank you for your comment. We look forward to your future visit
The atmosphere was beautiful on the patio. I ordered fish and it was delicious. The service was great.
We came to celebrate a great friends’ first anniversary and it was fantastic. We were sat by the windows facing outdoors, had a slight breeze, and got to watch all the activities going on outside. This. Couple was married there last yeR in an intimate ceremony and it too was fantastic!!
Thank you for your comment. We look forward to seeing you in the future
Amazing food, great staff, and the ambiance is very cool with the hanging gardens, pmd and sculptures.
Rat’s has moved into my top five of favorite restaurants. We ate outside, under-cover. Everything was delicious, especially the French bread, brussel sprouts, French Onion Soup, branzino, popovers, and desserts. Very professional staff. Unparalleled view of Monet’s Bridge and more outside and wonderful art inside. Special birthday. Thank you!
Great food and excellent service in an incredible setting. My girlfriend stated that she felt like we were in a fairytale
This is such a special place! Even in pandemic times they provided a delightful experience. We dined outside on the patio overlooking the lovely gardens, art etc (connects to Grounds for Sculpture). But there is also inside seating now open in line with covid spacing requirements. (Several different initimate indoor dining areas and small bar. Clear attention to safety guidelines but also a peaceful fine dining experience. Drinks, first and second courses were delicious. We were too full for dessert. Server was attentive, friendly and informative but not pushy or hovering. Had only been here once before on visit to Art park, but glad for reminder of how much I had enjoyed the restaurant. Plan to make a point to return to the restaurant as a destination in itself, even though an hour from home.
Food was tasteless, even the salads were tasteless. I sent my salad back but my friend asked for salt, pepper and olive oil and try to make it eatable... 😤🤦♀️
We were transformed for a moment . It was a great experience to feel that during this hard times living with Covid. The environment was clean and everyone so respectful with mask and policy. Thank you for a special b-day experience for my wife .
Excellent service. Food delicious.
Food was not good. Very dry. Drinks were excellent though and service was great
It was a perfect night out for us! Really enjoyed the ambiance
Exotic ambiance, excellent service and wonderful food
We were at GFS and were able to get a reservation.
I was excited to order the Cauliflower Shawarma on the luncheon menu but found the preparation to be disappointing. I've made the dish as per an Epicurious recipe and the seasonings in that dish are perfect. The cauliflower in the dish at Rats was virtually unseasoned and the tahini sauce was almost non-existent. The quinoa was quite good.
Love this place! One of my favorites!
Ate lunch outside, lovely view of the gardens. Great food, as always. Love this place.
We had a lovely meal. The ambiance is so extraordinary. it is like sitting in a Monet painting. The food was very good, The Hanger steak was done to perfection. The service was outstanding. I couldn't think of a better place to have a meal!
Delicious food, gracious service, wonderful time!
This most lovely ambiance, well prepared and well presented food. Truly a very special experience. A dinner to remember.
The inside dining area off of the terraces needs to be spruced up.
The food is uninspired.
The waiter was brusque.
We all had the seasonal quiche, it was delicious! We dined on the patio but the atmosphere is lovely both Inside and out. The service was exceptional.
