“Still good”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

I hadn't been here for some time after our very first visit when they first opened. The last time we had a really good meal and tonight was the same. We may need to ocme here more often. My paella was moist and tasty, altohugh I didn't think the beef fillet really made sense here. More chozio would have been better or a mussel or two, which were on the specials list. My wife's hanger steak was good as well. No room for dessert.

“Gourmet food in Hackettstown?”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Yes it is true. Somehow this chef decided to open in a strip mall in Hackettstown. There is great attention to detail in all the meals prepared here. The portion sizes are large and the service is friendly. BYOB with a bottle store a few steps away. A good solid meal consistently.

“Always good!!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Never had a bad meal here...service is always good. Presentation of food is always very good. It is a BYOB, which is a problem for some people, i personally don't mind. They often have coupons in a local paper for specials.

“3.5--Better than Average”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Stopped in for a late mid-week lunch to try their $10 Special (Soup & Sandwich); restaurant was surprisingly crowded. Visit started off on the wrong foot when their menu did not match their online menu; the server said that they just changed the menu that day (their website menu was updated the day following our visit). We all found their soups du jour (cream of broccoli and chicken orzo) salty. The disappointment in not seeing our hoped for entree selections on the menu led us all to "second" choices. Our sandwiches (Italian Chicken Panini, Grilled Hot Sausage, and Crispy Grouper Wrap) were all better than average, but short of "4-Very Good". Hence the 3.5 overall rating. We disliked their home fries and we all skipped dessert.
