They could have let us know in advance that there was a private party in their backyard and we wouldn't have a canopy in case of rain. Unfortunately, the rain cut short of our dining. But food was superb.

The food was delicious . I wasn’t to happy about where that sat us on the side walk. I saw many open tables at the out side dining patio .

Brought friends to our neighborhood to impress them. Bad restaurant to pick. Even though we had a reservation and was escorted to the outdoor space, we were then turned around and made to sit out on the sidewalk even though the out door space had plenty of tables that would fit the four of us. We asked several times to move but were basically told we were lucky they had the sidewalk for us to sit at. We did enjoy the cauliflower app and drinks but the codfish was very dry. My skirt steak was cooked perfectly but I’m not a fan of the sauce that wasn’t mentioned on the menu. Our friends were disappointed as well and won by taking us to Emma’s by journal square where we were treated wonderfully and had a great meal.

I ordered a brunch everything was overcooked except the eggs. Bread was hard as a rock, bacon fried til it was bits n pieces of charcoal. Otherwise I do like this place, which is as pricey as it always was before the pandemic. The menu and the prices has been a local issue for a while, but I’ll be back just order something else

We had a great night. We were seated under a beautiful big tree out back. Both appetizers and entrees were delicious. We have eaten here several times. Always a great choice. Especially loved the Irish music, one Sunday, a few months back !

Great food—loved the fresh pasta & cauliflower “wings”. Ambience was okay—we sat street side away from music and right next to kitchen so there was a fair amount of traffic (noise)—so you’ll want to be in patio area. Maybe next time!

I love the Hutton! The outdoor dining area is pretty and you feel as if you escaped the city while you are there. The food is excellent! Our server was conscientious and sweet. Social distancing practices were maintained by diners and the staff throughout the time I was there.

Excellent food with great flavors and lovely ambiance. Alcoholic cocktails barely had any alcohol in it and were iced down so it felt like basically drinking juice. The prices of the cocktails definitely did not correlate with the teaspoon of alcohol they put in the drinks, otherwise great food and lovely staff and service.

Been fans of The Hutton for a long time now, and were so happy to be able to go there the day NJ allowed outdoor dining during COVID. The Hutton staff was welcoming, friendly, and professional - and they kept to the safety procedures needed to keep everyone safe. Thank you The Hutton! Oh yeah - the food was perfect, as always - especially the onion rings app! YUM.

I made a reservation for a Saturday night. There was no visible host/hostess so we asked a bartender what we needed to do. He was brusk and not helpful. Granted that is a very busy time but there should be someone to check in with about a reservation. When someone did appear I told her that the noise level inside was terrible so I asked for an outdoor table. The hostess said she was going to check outside and didn't come back. After about 10 minutes we decided to leave and find some place else. I'm very glad we did.

Service is not great. Don’t know why. Our server was pleasant. Maybe she is all alone? The kitchen completely forgot to make one of the meals in our party of 7. They made it right, didn’t charge for it but it ruined the evening. We would have preferred to have the meal in time vs a free meal.

We were a little nervous, heading into The Hutton, that the experience wouldn't live up to high expectations, having read the other reviews here. The photos online give it a classier vibe than what you get in person, which is a very casual, almost sports bar flair, complete with a kitchen that (if you don't look closely) might have been cranking out hot wings all day.

However, from the first bite of food, it was clear coming here was the right choice. The ingredients were impossibly fresh, and delightfully mixed. I'm choosing "delight" very deliberately, for that's the sensation our taste buds were giving us. The service was excellent, and the food was a better value than most of what we've seen closer to the waterfront.

Thanks for the amazing meal, Hutton. We'll be back.
