    We had a very enjoyable brunch. The owner and wait staff were very nice. I recommend the ahi tuna poké, cilantro lime shrimp, cheese plate, kung pao cauliflower. We will be back.

    Mango chicken was good. The short rib lollipops are good but definitely need the Bbq sauce that accompanies it

    They give you chick peas to mash your own hummus which is accompanied by delicious bread.

    Chilean sea bass is excellent! Short ribs, lobster fettuccine, and truffle Mac & cheese are also great. Brunch is fantastic!

    The brunch plates, like the Classic Benedict, are solid and well-priced, but service seems to be lacking at times.

    Highlight: mash your own chickpeas hummus. Crostinis were good. Entree eggplant panini with feta ehh. Not going back here again. Waitress not good - she rushed us.

    Horrible! Avoid if possible, the food was boring and stale, the wiaters rude and slow and the venue was very noisy and cluttered. I will never eat here again.

    Amelia's Flatbread Pizza with Chorizo, Wild Mushroom, Smoked Gouda and a Fried Egg easily makes "Best items I've eaten in NJ". Make sure to ask for a second fried egg, cause I think it should have two

    Ask for hummus when they seat you. They used to serve it to everyone, but now they only do upon request. It's free and yummy!

    Enjoyed a NY Strip on Saturday night and I must say, it was outstanding! At $24,it was a tremendous value and of high quality. It was easily comparable to a NY Strip at a high end NY steak house.

    Ask for the make-your-own hummus and crackers. It's delicious and free, but you have to ask for it.
