“We went with our children for our 10 year anniversary November 11 and it was a wonderful time. The children love it, the food was great. We will definitely return.”OpenTable Diner November, 2015
“I absolutely love this place! The ambiance is warm & E.R.I.C.(Friday nights) is sensational. I’ve been there a few times. My husband just loved his salmon, asparagus & mash potatoes. We dined for our Anniversary! We must return soon the service was great!”Facebook, November 2015
“I had a nice dinner here. The beet salad was pretty good, as was quesadilla. The place is very spacious compared to the NYC restaurants that I am used to.”Rob Neuhaus, Google 2015
“Met a friend here for drinks and snacks. Sat at the bar for awhile by myself while waiting for her. It was early happy hour on a weekday and people were just beginning to trickle in, a few diners, a few folks grabbing dinner at the bar–nice upscale relaxed scene with a view of the sushi bar right there in the dining room.

The weather was nice and my friend and I sat on the patio, which has a view over downtown South Orange. Watch the NJ Transit trains coming and going through the statin below and be glad you’re sitting there having a drink instead 🙂 I had the tasty salmon avocado tartar tower–a little pricy but not surprising for a fancy spot in SO. I will go back to try more stuff bc upscale New American cuisine is a different type of cuisine for the area.”Krista B., Yelp, October 2015
