This is one of our favorite restaurants. I have never been disappointed with any of the meals. Love the grilled hanger steak and the chicken Toscana. My husband usually gets a seafood dish and my daughter loves the steak au poivre. Carlo is so friendly and makes us feel like family. Highly recommend it. Homemade desserts and rolls are delicious as well.
The food & service continues to be excellent! This is restaurant is a rustic setting in the old train station.
One of our favorites. Keep coming back for the welcoming atmosphere, wide menu selection and always good menu. Never been disappointed.
Pleasantly surprised by the evening at The Station. The old train station has a charming and quaint ambiance, that was made more appealing by the optional patio outdoor dining. The food was prepared very well, all dishes from scratch, and were presented well on the plate. I had the scallops, was given a generous portion and the dish was delightful. My wife had the hanger steak entree, and as we shared the two dishes we got a little surf n turf going. Great meal well worth the money.
It's cozy with an historic vibe, which is nice, but most of the prices are high for what you get. The salads, at $14, are seriously overpriced! My lemon drop martini had NO taste of lemon, and my "lump" crab cake was not LUMP crab meat, but all of that finely shredded tasteless stuff with lots of filler.
Tucked away like it's a hidden location but right near the highways.
Large menu selection as well as a varied wine selection whether by the glass or bottle.
You're free to linger and enjoy your conversation but the wait staff is never far away and everyone is very pleasant.
I truly recommend this for an enjoyable evening or lunch.
I live in town and love it there. Do not get to go as often as I would like to. Everything is always spot on.
Nicely done. Menu is terrific, varied with daily specials that are good. Wine list is also nice with range of choices. Service was great, a lovely midweek dinner.
Very good service and food. The only knock I had was strangely enough the coffee was served at room temperature
Family get together!!!
Excellent as always!
Great neighbourhood gem in Mountain Lakes. Small, intimate bar, (try the Signature Cocktail, you won’t be sorry!), deep menu and high level of culinary quality. Can’t wait to try the outdoor patio.
Loved the transformation of an old train station into an elegant dining experience. Food was absolutely superb, healthy and substantial portions. Can't wait to go back to experience the outside dining.
Went for anniversary dinner and had a great experience overall. Steaks were amazing and service was great. Will be back!
The Station has been a go to place for us for a long time now. They have helped us over the years with a wedding rehearsal dinner and 60th birthday party. We have also enjoyed everything from an intimate dinner for two, to gathering a number of friends for an evening of great dining and conversation. Carlos and his staff see to your every need when dining there. I highly recommend going.
We just found this restaurant and will go back. We went there for my wife birthday lunch and it was perfect; excellent food and attentive wait staff.
Staff was very attentive. Food was delicious. Had the filet burgundy and it was done perfectly. Wine was priced well with a nice selection. Will be going again!
Our first time there, we went for Valentine’s Day. Everything was excellent, service, food, drinks, atmosphere & dessert. We have already told a bunch of people of our experience at the station and recommend they try it. We’ll be back again for sure!
The Station at Mt Lakes was very warm & welcoming. A bit pretentious & seemed to have a local crowd that was quite robust. I would like to come back when the weather is warm & eat al fresco. Looks to be very pretty outside. The food was good, service was very attentive if a bit abrupt. Decent wine list but some of the servers were less than adequate. They seemed anxious to rush us through our dinner rather than let us take our time & relax. Plus, when we tried to order the special tuna on the menu, which looked delish, we were told there was no tuna available at all. No one said anything when we sat down, so we had to rethink our choices while the server hovered around us until I told her to let us decide & we would let her know! Appetizers were good, again food was good but the decor needs major refreshing. Plus, there is only 1 restroom, right beside one of the tables where a large group was dining. ICK! I get the feeling that if you become a regular, the service would be better. Probably will come back, would like to come back on a week night.
Server was excellent. Requested flowers on the table for my wife - and they did it! Fiod was great and would absolutely return. Second thumbs up for the service and waiter!!!
My boss found this hidden gem while we were on a business trip. We loved it so much we ate there again the 2nd night! The service is top notch, and the food is delicious! I can't wait to come back again!
Phenomenal! We had filet mignon burgundy and Gorgonzola. Both were melt in your mouth and full of flavor. We subbed for a wedge of potatoes Au gratin which were so good we would have been happy with them as a savory dessert. The overall experience was so good we came back the next night with. Customer.!
I wanted to celebrate my daughters 51 st Birthday with a special treat. The lunch was delicious and the service outstanding. Exactly what I wanted a Mother Daughter birthday lunch. I would recommend the menu and outstanding service for any occasion.
I love the old stone inside and out of the restaurant. The service was great but I was taken back by the menu. I haven't been to The Station in about 2 years I was surprised to see lots of pasta dishes on the menu. And I did not care for my hanger steak to come to me all ready cut in pieces I would have rather had a steak to cut.
Quite dining in a historic train station. Good food and service.
My husband ordered the steak arrabiata and he said it was better than my peppercorn steak. Mom ordered the balsamic chicken. It was a large portion and she ate it all. The blueberry cobbler looks more like a pie but is was outstanding. I would go back just for the cobbler. We were seated next to a loud party. Once their food came, the noise level was better. We will be back.
New Year's Eve and the service was prompt and attentive.
I found the Station at Mountain Lakes on Open Table by looking for a place for New Year's Eve in a nearby town. What is great find - the food was delicious, and plenty to eat at each serving. It is tucked away off the roads I normally drive on - but we were so impressed we will be back! Great spot any day your in the mood for great food.
Extremely unique with quality food and service. Very accommodating to all needs. Highly recommend for a special treat.
My wife and I wanted to have a nice Christmas Eve dinner. The Station exceeded our expectations.
The food was delicious and the staff treated us with the best service. We had a wonderful time. We planning our next trip back!
Excellent quality food without exception.
Always very good food, ambience and service.
We all had a very nice experience.
Since moving to Mountain Lakes a year ago, we finally decided to walk down the street for dinner and we are sure glad we did. Cozy (it is very tight) restaurant with tons of charm. Broad wine list and a fantastic bartender! Food was well-prepared and portions were generous. We had the stuffed salmon and steak Diane - the salmon was fantastic, the steak itself was meh - although the sauce was flavourful. Don't miss the scallop potatoes, they are delicious. The only knock is the venue can be loud, and don't sit on the right side of the downstairs dining room on the banquets....they were the original waiting room chairs and are VERY narrow. We will return and can't wait for warmer weather for the outdoor patio.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Station in Mountain Lakes. The wait staff was attentive but not over bearing. Our lunch was absolutely delicious. We shared an appetizer with prosciutto. The prosciutto was the best I've ever had. My entree was Chicken Toscana. I would order it again in a heartbeat. It was outstanding. I can't wait to return for another meal!
Food and service were excellent! We went for lunch after my brother’s wedding at the courthouse. We will definitely return!
Great food, service, and ambiance! I would definitely go back again.
Excellent! Always consistent. Good service and lovely atmosphere. A favorite of ours fro many years!
Very good food and service. Mussel appetizer was fabulous. Very noisy though.
Mediocre getting by on location and physical plant.
Service and food is always great It is run very well and service is wonderful as well as food.
