Restaurant Review

The Raven and the Peach is an upscale, special occasion restaurant; Popular for romantic occasions, birthday parties, and entertaining business clients.

The ambiance is upscale with ceiling fans, dark woods, potted plants, much like "Casablanca", in a comfortable, cozy setting. It's custom-made chairs and tables sit at reasonable intervals for an intimate dining experience.

The kitchen is run by Executive Chef Rob Candiotti who serves a limited menu of steaks, seafood, chops, chicken, and a raw bar. Offers vegetarian and gluten free options.

While the dishes are well prepared, they are very traditional in style, with little creativity, or use of fresh farm to table ingredients.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, the Raven and the Peach has live entertainment by a piano player and a vocalist in the bar area with a touch of old school supper club vibe.

Open 7 days/week. Valet Parking is available

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

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.
