"A friend recommended this for before a show at NJPAC. It's very small, but very nice. Unique cocktails and a very unique menu. We had the specials - a rib eye and a perch filet, which was excellent. The Squirrel Nuts side dish [home made tator tots with truffle oil] were out of this world...I could go back and just eat them all night.
Portions were just right - enough to fill without getting stuffed or needing doggie bags. The banana bread pudding dessert was superb.
Complimentary shots of home made Irish Cream were the perfect finish.
Unfortunately, we don't live close enough to go back often, but whenever we are in the area, we will definitely return.

"The pear martini is lovely. I was disappointed by the Colossal Crab pasta dish....not nearly enough crab for the price. I know now expensive that type of big chunk crab meat is, and based on the price of the dish, it should have included much more of the crab. My daughter had the mushroom pasta dish, which was excellent. Other than that, the service is top shelf, and everything else was as well. I would go back, and not order that dish!"

"This time I had the Shrimp and Mushroom Ravioli, which was superb. The Pear, Gorgonzola and Walnut salad was a great start, and the Blueberry Cobbler dessert ended the meal on a sweet note.
The service, as always, was excellent. I cannot say enough good things about the Station.
Love, love, love it!

"It's a very historical building, so lots of charm, but updated and very comfortable and clean. Our server, Jennifer, was terrific and the food was really good. The appetizers are quite small, so sharing a few is the way to go. The bloody marys were delicious. We would definitely go back if we lived closer, but at least we know a place now outside of New Hope that we can return to when we see friends in the area."

"A totally wonderful experience all around. I can't wait to go there in the nice weather and sit outside. The salmon with the walnut pesto was fantastic, and the martinis are perfect."

"Because it is an old train station, it is really charming. The wait staff couldn't be nicer, and the menu offers many wonderful items to choose from. I had a salad and a shrimp dish, and both were excellent. The bar is small, but cute with a pleasant bartender who made a perfect martini. I can't wait to go back in the nice weather and sit outside. This is a very special place that stands out from more run-of-the-mill restaurants."
