For a romantic occasion, asked to be seated at a table in front of the roaring fireplace, or be sure to ask for the Garden Room. On Friday and Saturday evenings you can enjoy drinks and live music in the Tavern Room.
The menu is under the direction of Executive Chef Elio Gracia. His menu exhibits a variety international influences including French, and the flavors of Puerto Rico.

The wait staff are very professional, friendly, and anticipatory.
They have a "no cell phone" policy.

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .
The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.
Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick", and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
