A well known fish/seafood restaurant. You can pick out what type of fish you want to eat out of the fish tank also.

Easily the best seafood in Bergen County. I've lived here all of my life and know the others people will mention at "the best". Wrong. Give it a try. This matches up with NYC's finest. Pricey, but incredible.

Hostesses have typical North Jersey attitude. If they don't know you, cold shoulder. Once seated, however, the experience becomes a dining pleasure. Pick your own fresh fish from the display or throw your faith into the hands of your very capable server. You won't be disappointed. Favorite seafood restaurant whenever we head back North.

The atmosphere is wonderful, soft, soothing, warm, yet crispy with a masculine feel. The service is spectacular, you feel as though you are the only ones there no matter how busy they are no matter how large your party is. No rushing, truly relaxing fine dining!

I have had excellent meals and so-so meals- not sure why- very pricey, but great for special occasions.

The food and service are amazing. It is on the pricey side, but it is worth every penny. Try the corn risotto and lobster ravioli.

First, let me start off by saying bring your wallet. If you have trouble parting with your $ stay away but you will miss the best meal you have ever had. This is about my 10th time to Varka. Yes, it's expensive but get over it! I order the grilled octopus appy every time I go because it is so... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Bergen County and it is absolutely deserving of such acclaim. The atmosphere is very nice and there is always a good crowd. The food is excellent and the service is good as well. For appetizers, I recommend the grilled octopus - the best I've ever tried, and the zucchini & eggplant chips... More
