Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
Amazing as always. We go 2 to 3 times a year and always get a great meal with great service.
Spot on once again. Been several times and the kitchen and staff have never missed
Most of the staff were new to me but they didn't miss a beat. warm and attentive service as usual.
As usual, the food was perfection.
Flawless as always
Everything about the evening was perfect. I felt as if I was sitting in my own dining room.
The service was outstanding as was the food.
Definitely will come back for an occasion.
Loren as as ever provided a wonderful meal. On this occasion the service was a bit slow from a new waiter but the quality of the food remains consistently very high.
We keep returning to Lorena's not just due i'ts food, but the service which is always on point. Would have given higher accolades, but this time around my entree which consisted of the venison sirloin, was very much subdued by the lack intensity that a cut of venison should have, in other words was missing the "game on game". And when paired with spaghetti squash- which in my opinion, is a the blandest of the squashes- well... one is left wanting. Perhaps this is due to following their customer base, but why have venison if it's going to taste like filet mignon? My husband on the other hand, had the duck breast and loved every bite. And as always the crab crepe and mushroom bisque, the best! Overall, very good and will return.
The service was EXCELLENT!! The food was EXCELLENT!! Overall a wonderful French cuisine restaurant!
This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were happy with the food but disappointed with the service. For a high end priced restaurant we expected first rate service, however, after arriving and sitting for at least 10 minutes with no attention at all we began to think we were invisible. Finally we asked for water and to have our wine opened (it's a BYOB). We also had to ask to get menus after waiting longer following getting our wine opened. The food was excellent, they just need to improve on the service.
Service was wonderful and attentive. The salads and appetizers were amazing. Not all that impressed with quality of the Filet Mignon nor the Rack of Lamb which were both fairly dry. Black sea bass was awesome.
The exquisite food and service said it all. This was my first time to Sunday brunch. Whilst I was seated in the front part of the restaurant, the side room had a large group of people who basically let their children run wild. Not the fault of the restaurant, but it was annoying that people would bring children to a very upmarket restaurant and let them run around and carry on. I have never experienced such a thing at Lorena's before and trust It was a "one-off" situation.
This is a very special and perfect place to eat l. The food is fabulous. This is fine dinning without a doubt.
Beleave me when I say you will love this place. A perfect atmosphere great costumer service and very fancy :)
Excellent!!! Very creative menu.
Food is good overall but not very creative. Room is very tight and somewhat crowded.
One of the best dining experiences! Food was excellent, service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful! And..It's local!
Been to Lorena’s many times. Love the creative signatur dishes such as the crab meat crepe which is delicious. The food is very high quality and usually well prepared. This time my husband ordered the fois gras which was superbe, but had too sweet a sauce of curants. I ordered the crepe but it seemed to be cut in half. Maybe I never noticed this before, but I noticed. I had the halibut which was a bit overcooked and again in a puree type sauce which was sweet. I don’t think the balance was good. My husband had the beef filet which he said was OK. We went with another couple who had the same appetizers, but the bass entree which he seemed to like. The desserts were a lemon tart which was just OK, perhaps not enough chantilly, and the chocolate cake. The desserts there seem to fall short in taste and size. Overall the portions seem to be getting smaller and the prices, getting bigger. They also had just the sweeter nut bread, but brought my husband some cut up baguete for his sauce. It was a Thursday night, but they usually have at least two types of bread. I will go back, but not for a while.
Lorena’s is one of the finer restaurants in NJ. Having eaten here a number of times in its existence, I have always been rewarded with an excellent dining experience. On this occasion I started with a Salmon tartar, followed by Scallops with a creamy truffle oil sauce, and finishing with their molten chocolate cake. I sampled their beet salad, pumpkin soup, halibut and duck as well. Everything was expertly prepared and delicious. The service was excellent as well.
Having eaten at a number of highly rated restaurants both nationally and internationally I feel Lorena’s hold its own among the best of restaurants. It is always a special occasion eating at Lorena’s. I look forward to my next visit.
Wonderful food and service can be had at his local restaurant. Very good for a birthday party.
This is my third visit to this restaurant, but certainly not my last. The food is superb, the service is brilliant, and it is a delight to not have to shout to be heard by your dinner companion. I would heartily recommend this to anyone.
Lorena's is the kind of place you wonder why you don't come more often. It's worth the drive. I had fish, my wife had lamb, both were perfectly prepared. The space is comfortable. The wait staff is super: attentive, friendly and knowledgable. Lorena's is a real neighborhood gem.
Food is AMAZING and Love the quiet and intimate atmosphere
It's nice to get NYC quality food in the burbs, which is what you get at Lorena's. The owner and waiter were superb. The bus girl needs to learn how to place knives and forks on a table. My meal was perfect. The fois gras was crispy on the outside and like butter inside. My rack of lamb came perfectly rare and tasty. It was a lovely meal for a birthday celebration. Highly recommended.
How nice to return to a true fine dining experience in New Jersey. Quiet, subdued with truly professional service. Food is carefully prepared and presented, with obviously fresh ingredients and amazing blend of flavors and textures. BYO makes Lorena's a good value too.
A must when in the area (or even if you're not).
We’ve been there several times and we have been rewarded each time with a very special meal in a comfortable environment. It’s worth every penny and more.
Wonderful time food was top notch . Would definetly go again highly recommended.
Really outstanding meal - food was great (my wife said that the market salad was one of the best salads she has ever had!) and the service was refined without being at all stuffy. Ambience is quiet enough to have a conversation yet consistent with a fine French meal. Cannot wait to go back - it's definitely a special occasion place, but don't want to wait too long.
Very romantic and beautiful small dining room that helps gives that warm loving feeling. The food presentation and taste was excellent. Really enjoyed the banana split and carrot cake! Both were very tasty, I couldn't decide which I liked best! The owner Humberto was very friendly and made sure we had a memorable time celebrating our wedding anniversary at his establishment. I highly recommend this hidden secret!
Restaurant was good but they tried to squeeze too many ppl into a small room. There was no privacy to speak whatsoever the entire experience was so uncomfortable. Tables are 1 feet away from each other and they squeezed 7 tables in a row. The price does not reflect the experience. I wouldn’t be going back
Food was amazing, but too many people on their cell phones.
Fois Gras, Lamb, Halibut, Snapper cooked to perfection.. service extraordinaire...
Butternut squash soup was amazing! The amuse bouchée is a nice touch. One of our halibut meals was a bit overcooked. The duck entree was delicious. We were a little disappointed that the desserts are underwhelming. The cappuccino was fine.
IMO, there isn't a better more creative dining experience in Northern NJ.
Michelin Star level dining, as always. Consistently delivers a high-end yet unpretentious dining experience.
Always an excellent choice. One of the best in the area.
I have never been disappointed at Lorena’s. Whether for dinner or brunch, this is the place to go. The dishes are creative and taste incredible. Additionally, the service was impeccable. Our “go to” restaurant for special occasions!!
Reservation for 8:30. Was not seated until 9:20!
Asked for front room seating in original reservation booking was put in the extended room farther in. Slightly claustrophobic. They were Out of the venison special not acceptable. We brought white wine and waiter apologized that they were out of white wine glasses and used Pinot noir glasses. Disappointing. Pen that was included in the check folder was not acceptable. It was a very old faded plastic bic style pen. Shocking really. We have been to Lorena’s before. Truly not expecting the details to be sub par. The food was to their standards and very delicious. Just not super happy.
Excellent food especially the venison
We had a lovely lunch/brunch and loved the food. One of the group is a vegetarian and had no problem finding something on the menu. the Oysters were amazing and the lump crab crepe ...delicious
