A beautiful venue with very attentive, friendly staff. I had the salad special for the day and one of the best gnocchi’s I have ever had. My husband had a bone marrow appetizer and an incredible squash soup. They also had a “10% per inch of snow” promotion that night. Very inventive.
Stage left has a knack for making restaurant trip an experience. We took advantage of the Snow Special and had fabulous burgers, wine and overall ambience.
Outstanding food and wine list. I was with a group of people and we had the most delicious burger and tastiest steaks. Service was impeccable. I didn't know what I was missing having not dined here before. I will be a regular from now on. Best restaurant in New Brunswick.
Bad steak at very high price. Good wine. Ok service for the prices.
Delicious food, great wine and service!
We have been patronizing Stage Left since it opened decades ago. The food has always been excellent. Over the years, it has developed a great steakhouse menu as well. They feature items that are hard to find such as Iberian ham fed on acorns, boar chops, and lamb chops (more of a mutton chop) in the style of Keen's Steak House in NYC.
Great food, great service, great wine list.
The staff was very attentive. The food was good. The portion size was adequate, but somewhat expensive. I loved the atmosphere though and will definitely go back!
Brought a friend for his birthday.
Had great cocktails and charcuterie to start, and our server was very informative on the specialty cheese selections. The real star, however, are the steaks, and the optional flavored butters or sauces available. My petite filet, medium rare, was perfection. The horseradish butter just put it over the top! The desserts were no disappointment- chocolate lava cake and a creme brulee (with a sweet "happy birthday!" note from the chef, written in chocolate sauce), was an unexpected personal touch that makes this restaurant above the rest. I drove 90 minutes to meet my friend here, and it was more than worth it! Book a dinner here asap.
Salmon was very good, steak was cooked as ordered. Wait staff was attentive - a little noisy for an upscale restuarant
Everything Was excellent! Steak melted in your mouth. Expensive wine list but it was worth it
WE HAD a wonderful dinner ... service was GREAT... we will be back ,,,,
Valentines dinner. Great service and nice touch speaking in general personal terms with the owners Mark and Francis.
Great food, seriously — cannot beat the food here. Great service and nice overall ambience. Pricey though.
My husband and I have not gone out in quite some time since we have a little one at home and boy were we pleasantly surprised. Former New Brunswick residents and Steakhouse 85 enthusiasts, we couldn't get a reservation at 85. We decided to take a chance at Stage Left Steak and I'm super happy we did. Choices were great, even better was that my steak was cooked to absolute perfection and so flavorful. It didnt even need the chipotle lime butter to accompany; however, that was super tasty and happy I tried it. In addition, the sides were awesome! Steak fries were super crisp so if you don't enjoy something more well done I suggest staying away. The parmesan gratin potato side comes in perfectly sliced on the mandolin piles and tasted just as good today when I finished the leftover for lunch. Also tried grilled asparagus and they were yum, yum, yum in my tum. Paired with a nice pinot noir and the other half had a Jameson on the rocks. I was stuffed but when you don't get to go out often any more got the toffee pudding dessert. Super sweet, and amazingly delightful the caramelized nuts and sauce served in for reminiscent of the bread puddings I had down in New Orleans. The only downside was I would have liked it a little darker, more candlelight-esque in there. More like the ambiance in Catherine lombardi's although I'm super happy we weren't seated right by the door as I hate that! Happy that we ended up here in the end. It was super delicious!
I don’t really understand this place. I feel like location is the biggest component it has going for it bc it’s overpriced and disjointed. Paper menus? Burger was flavorless and cooked improperly. Same for the steak. Potatoes too. What’s going on here? I shouldn’t have to season food when I’m paying more than a weeks worth of groceries for it. Server was all over the place and the martinis were on the small side. The server also removed drinks too soon. Really? It was just all a solid “meh” and didn’t meet my standards at all.
The food was excellent, the wine was delicious and the staff was very attentive. I will go back!
We had a great time at Stage Left. All of us had the burgers and they were delicious! So was the bottle of Pinot Noir that we ordered with the burgers! The restaurant is beautiful, the service was terrific, and the food was great - we will definitely be back!
Food and service was phenomenal!
The service and ambiance were very nice...however, $115 for a porterhouse that was not seasoned at ALL was disappointing to say the least !.....the Texas toast with bone marrow was a a disappointment as well...it might as well been buttered toast ...because that's what it tastes like....the bone marrow was almost negligible....I never mind paying $240 for a meal if the food is delicious...stage left food was not in keeping with the price we paid !!
Definitely better than the last time we were there in June of 2017 this time the food was amazing and the service was excellent we set an a nice quiet corner with beautiful lighting on the table not like in June when we were there with the doors open and ambulances and cars driving by making a ton of noise. That was for anniversary and it was not very romantic sitting in the bar when we requested to be in the formal dining room this time was a great . I definitely recommend stage left
The food is great and the service is even better. The staff is knowledgeable about the menu and they are very pleasant.
Consistent excellent service. I’ve never dined at Stage Left without being greated by one or both of the owners. Food is consistently excellent. Always something new. Excellent wine and drinks. Super attentive wait staff. Emilio was a “standout”! This is a great special occasion or date night spot. Not stuffy, not formal, more of a sophisticated “foodie” spot. Get on their mailing list, there are always special dining events. Try the wagyu beef on a Himalayan salt brick......then thank me later.
Wonderful experience. Sat at the bar and received keen attention and wonderful advice on drink and food selections. Great hospitality and respect for the customer experience and a true love for food, fun and drink at Stage Left Steak.
As always, the service and food at Stage Left was impeccable. Everything was delicious!
This is my fifth time at Stage Left. This time my wife and I brought my parents. What a wonderful meal with great service and ambiance! I recommend Stage Left to anyone who is looking for that special place to go for a special occasion. Ours was a late Christmas present to each other.
Everything was absolutely wonderful, we really had a great time, the food was great and the staff was great very friendly and always cane by to make sure everything was fine. Great service will def recommend this restaurant.
Was very disappointed after having had good experiences here years ago. Took 1 hour for meal to arrive. Couldn’t eat dessert bc of time taken to bring out food and with 45 minutes to a show the wait staff gave us a limited options that might be ready in enough time. Gentleman that poured wine wasn’t sure what it was. Wine suggestion not good. Service lacking huge drop off from before. Very quick to run away from you. Food was disappointing especially compared to what we experienced before. Way overpriced overall. Even took long to bring out check. New we were not happy so brought us a free dessert when we already had our coats on. Oh and the icing on the cake is that the meal left me with an upset stomach.
I had not gone to an upscale restaurant before, and it felt great to have water always be filled up, to have excellent food and cheery music playing in the background. The restaurant was a little quirky in its own way, because I expected instrumental rather than older pop music that was playing and there were a lot of cute decorations that I did not expect.
First time at Stage Left. Very impressed with menu, service and quality.
Apps, drinks and entrees were great...
We both got the Wagyu tasting. It was delicious! I just wish I knew exactly what we were eating.
It was a "tasting" so we expected the server to point out the meat and explain like any restaurant would do with any type of "tasting menu". The real disappointment came with dessert. They had a "special" which was apple crumb cake. It tasted stale. I've had better Entenmann's. Because it was considered a "special", I guess I had high expectations. The other dessert we had at the table was not good either. We will be back, we just won't be ordering dessert.
Great service and outstanding food. The wait staff was knowledgeable and very helpful.
Food and service was outstanding however pricey. Need to have more affordable wine choices.
Went to dinner there last night and was totally disappointed with the food. I had a Caesar salad and the lettuce came out with brown spots all over back of the leaves. The dinner bread was hard as a rock. For dinner I had a bone in Filet that had absolutely no taste at all. Even drenched in the garlic butter it was very bland. We also had the salmon dinner which also had no flavor and blah. For the bill being over $250.00, the food was a total disappointment. With this said, if you are looking for a great tasting dinner, I wouldn’t recommend eating here. You would get a better tasting dinner at a Texas Road House or local steak house for a more reasonable price.
Overall good experience! nice touch to have our own private room!
The service was outstanding very attentive, food was good. We always wanted to try this restaurant. The Pinot Noir they suggested was good. Wild Boar was good as was the stage left Burger. Wild Berry Bread pudding was very good.
We enjoyed a thoroughly amazing dinner. From our experience at the bar to the amazing quality of the meal everything tonight was flawless. Our waiter was conversational but formal and professional. Stage Steak may be the best steakhouse in New Jersey.
Food was good but not outstanding. For the price I'm not sure I would go back. However the molten chocolate cake was outstanding.
I took a friend of mine to dinner at Stage Left before seeing the Nutcracker at the State Theater. What a little gem - good cocktails (the bartender even made her own concoction for a non-alcoholic drink for my friend), great steaks and sides, and terrific service in elegant surroundings.
Awesome food and good service....the meat is a good as any restaurant I have ever been anywhere in world.
