About every two or three months my brother get together for lunch in Bernardsville, it's about halfway between our homes. Sette is so good we never consider going anywhere else. Alan, the owner, is so hands on, overseeing every facet of Sette. This is really nice to see these days in my humble opinion. Alan knows we don't bother with the menu anymore, he just brings out several courses. All are creative and delicious. The restaurant is small and well appointed. Dinners are every bit as good as lunch. This is clearly one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in NJ. Go.

This is a quiet upscale restaurant with attentive service .
The food was excellent and portions are in the larger size. We couldn’t finish everything so we had to take doggie bag home.
It was a treat the next day to relive the food with the leftovers.
I would definitely go back for any occasion. The price is on the high side for every day dining but so worth it.

Small, intimate place with super food and service. Consistent and a true gem. Plan two-three weeks ahead if you want to reserve for a weekend night. Try the filet with green pepper sauce!

Sette is a great date spot or with a another couple. Very intimate inside with only a few tables. so reservations can be tough so always plan ahead. The food is excellent as well along with the service. I have been there several times and always have a very pleasant experience. If you are early go next door to The Benards Inn for a cocktail at the old school bar.

We went on a Friday for lunch and we were the only ones there. Service was great, very professional, but friendly. Food was great, though a little higher than some of competitors. Overall, we thought the food was a little better than competitors, so that is OK. We will go back.

The food was delicious from antipasti to dessert. We particularly liked the shrimp and cabbage antipasti dish.

Very intimate setting combined with excellent service. Our waiter kept our glasses full the whole night. The executive chef greeted us and helped answer any questions we had about the menu.

Will definitely be going back.

This is our fourth time in Sette. Feels home. Chef came out and talk to us. Everything is excellent. The only thing I would change is bathroom location. Our table was too close and every time someone goes in and out my attention goes there. But overall everything is great in sette
