“Polished floors, high ceilings and a fireplace.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The ambiance at Huntley has the feel of being in a setting for an architectural magazine:polished wood floors, high ceilings with wood beams, stone fireplace. A taverne, as they spell it, but definitely upscale. Likewise the food. Fish is particularly well done, and you can't go wrong with the burgers. Wood fired pizza is more of the traditional variety at lunch---some unique choices at dinner. One of my favorite salads on the menu is crispy calamari. You might want to ask them to lighten up a bit on the Thai miso vinagrette dressing or have it on the side. Fine selection of wines
as well as beers. Porch dining is also available in good weather and heated on cooler days.
Service depends on whom you get, usually okay though not memorable.

“A great 4 star restaurant”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Restaurant strives to be a five star restaurant. Great ambiance. The prices are quite expensive though. Tables were dirty and when you substitute something on the menu for dietary restrictions they do not offer you a substitute. Make sure you make reservations. The Tuna was very good. The Mahi Mahi was excellent. The Filet Mignon was average.

“Good Times!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

This tavern was recommended to us to try out while we were here in Summit so we did! It was Mother's Day so we weren't sure about the crowd so I called ahead and made a reservation. We arrived and our table was ready. We sat on the patio which was very nice. We were "double teamed" by John and another guy who's name I forget. Sorry about that. John was very friendly and not stuffy as one might anticipate here. Our drinks were brought out promptly and quenched our thirst quite well. We ordered the fried asparagus which was very good. I ordered the pork chop and wifey got the monkfish. Both very good. The outdoor seating was wonderful as the weather was just perfect. Our entertainment was watching a mysterious Rolls Royce sitting across the street with its lights on for a good 20 minutes. What was going on inside anyway. Okay, I digress, sorry. Overall the Huntley Tavern is a great spot frequented by what appeared to be locals. A bit pricey but for the right occasion, worth every penny.

“Great fancy food”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Love love this place. We are in the suburbs of NJ so not the most exciting, exotic food. Huntley always delivers great food and it's such a lovely atmosphere! Fireplace is gorgeous! It's a fab spot for Sat afternoon lunch or Sun brunch. Happy hour is always hopping in the bar. Service is ok, nothing to remark about. The food is great, though. Really great!

This restaurant is one of the best and dining there (or simply having a cocktail) is always a very pleasant experience. The food is consistently excellent, the service always great and the ambiance perfect.
