We had an early reservation at 5:30 because this restaurant is so popular. Taste the food and you’ll see why! Salads, appetizers, entrees - each one a treat. Grandma’s Chocolate Cake should NOT be missed. Best ever!! I love the fact that The Station doesn’t pack too many tables into their small space so it’s never overcrowded or too noisy. A+++

Terrific food offered both in an EXTENSIVE list of specials (especially for Easter brunch ) and in their regular manu. Service a bit over solicitous with lots of interruptions at our table, but Carlos’ staff were professional and effective working as a team.

We have been planning to visit the Station and finally got around to it. Our expectations were average and were we surprised. This is an excellent restaurant with fantastic food (good size portions), great service and a decent value. My wife had salmon and I had a special pork chop that was the best. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants a really great dinner with great service.

The food here is really, really good! It kind of surprises me because they have so many menu choices - I always figure that someplace which is trying to make so many different things probably doesn't make them very well. But that's not true at The Station. Every time my husband and I visit, we order something different and we have never had anything less than a great meal. The service is great too.

The Station is consistently excellent with great food, exceptional service and good ambiance. The wait staff is polished and extremely attentive, the food is first rate with several wonderful house specialties. Everything is delivered promptly so there is no “too long” wait for anything. I wish that this place came to mind more often when we dine out as the experience is always great. Highly recommended

This gem never fails to impress. From the moment you walk through the front door into the cosy pub area, to the time you leave, the warmth of the management and servers is in abundance. This restaurant is housed in the original ticketing office of the old Mountain Lakes Station, and one can only imagine how the local folks waited for their train to New York city. Carlos and his team continue to be gracious and attentive throughout the evening, and we always feel so welcome when we dine there. We travelled from New York city for our meal, and left feeling the trip was well worth the distance. The food is excellent and well presented, so our thanks go to the Chef and his crew, who have always pleased our palates. How lucky the Mountain Lakers are to have this restaurant so close. We'll be back.

I have been going to The Station for years and it always hits the mark. The atmosphere nice and cozy, yet special which really makes it unique. The service is always on point and the food is solid. I always get the Station Martini -- its my favorite! I had a great lunch with a friend and the pace was perfect. We both loved our dishes and left with enough for dinner later in the evening.
