Always love coming here! You feel very welcome and it's nice and lively. The servers are always very friendly and very attentive and the owner always walks around and talks to the patrons. We both started with a cocktail and then ordered dinner. I had my favorite salad, the frisbee with bacon lardons, a poached egg and the house vinaigrette. The dressing is well balanced and not overly vinegar heavy which some vinaigrettes can be. My husband had the salad with smoked salmon. He loved it! For entree's we both ordered the Choucroute special which was 3 sausages, one smoked , one made of veal and another type I don't remember it's main meat. All were delicious and served with a sauerkraut with apple. It was a nice accompaniment to the sausages. The owner said he gets the sausages from a guy in PA, at certain times of the year. They were perfect! My husband finished with a warm, chocolate cake that he thought was perfect. I would definitely recommend this neighborhood gem!!! More

Mediterranean | New Brunswick, New Jersey - Central

First time - everything was absolutely delicious and authentic. The grilled octopus was grilled to perfection, dolmades tasty, hummus very creamy and artistically presented; the grilled lamb was perfect and the tabbouleh was the best I have had ever, short of when my (late) wife and I would prepare it. Collin, our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Alphonso was a delight. As a Greek, I ALWAYS go through a whole lemon with a meal - not only did they provide that to my specs, but offered me a "shot" of freshly squeezed lemon to add to water and our food - a lively surprise! Will be back again! More

Steakhouse | New Brunswick, New Jersey - Central

I have been going to stage left since I was about 14 years old for all of my families special occasions. The owner Marc is almost always there and always makes a table Visit and the Maître d’ Christian is always a pleasure. I have down Christian for probably 10 years or so and watched him grow from server to bartender to manager of the restaurant and he provides excellent service and always makes sure everything is just right. My waiters all have always been very accommodating and attentive I apologize to the man who was my server tonight as his name slips my mind but i have had him before and he is excellent along with all of the staff I have encountered It was time I wrote a glowing review for this restaurant as it has always been a favorite and special place of mine with excellent food atmosphere but above all excellent service.

Asian | New Brunswick, New Jersey - Central

The food and drinks are worth coming to this restaurant for. Absolutely 5 star for food and drinks. HOWEVER- the service is always super slow unless they are bringing out your food. Your food will never spend any time sitting in the window waiting to be picked up, that's always the speediest part. Every other part from first taking your order to getting drinks and refills to boxing up your food to getting the check is very slow. They only check on you if they bring your food or if you manage to grab their attention. The food is worth the wait if you have good company and the time to hang out and are patient. More

Great Sunday/weekend brunch spot if you're looking to have a more typical, relaxed restaurant atmosphere compared to a more lively experience that certain brunches tend to provide. I enjoy both, but of course certain groups/occasions warrant one more the other. More

There was a private event at the restaurant so we were seated at the bar lounge, which was fine. They had a table reserved for us and though they were busy catering to the private event, the servers were attentive to us. It was a bit noisy because we were in the bar area and a lot of the guests from the private event were in the bar. But it was fine for our purposes because we were trying to catch a show and just needed a decent place to eat that was close to the theater. Overall a good experience. More
