Finally, a New York style atmosphere and experience crosses the Hudson to Central Jersey. Char Steakhouse's innovative cuisine features only the finest cuts of Dry Aged and Prime Beef with fish delivered fresh daily. Guests will dine by landscaped views revealed by towering windows. Mahogany wood walls and ceiling treatments create an authentic steakhouse environment rivaled by none in the New Jersey dining scene. Unique features include four modern fireplaces that are the first of their kind, a curved wall of water that rains serenity in the aptly named Rain Room. Guests can enjoy 7 cuts of the finest quality dry aged beef or snack on oysters and colossal blue crab from our premier raw bar. Seating in the lounge is offered on a first come first serve basis or party goers can reserve arched custom booths for up to twelve. Our highly trained and experienced staff exhibit warmth and hospitality in welcoming Char's guests home. All of this at a prices you never thought possible.

"It was my girlfriend's birthday and she requested a special cocktail to be surprised with by the bartender. Our server Allyson was very accommodating and conveyed the message to the bartender and came back with a libation that my girlfriend enjoyed thoroughly. The speed of service was great for the occasion and I could not be happier with our experience. I don't visit steakhouses very often but this is definitely worth the investment."

The restaurant's owner and executive chef, Juan Andres Placencia, creates dishes with only the freshest, high-quality ingredients prepared with refined, elevated cooking techniques. Located in the heart of Montclair, Costanera is open for lunch and dinner six days a week. <br />

"The food was delicious. As a foodie, I must say that was exquisite peruvian food. I had the lamb and it was amazing...we tried the lomo saltado and the causa de cangrejo and the ceviche and everything was delicious. Native peruvian approved, I just needed a pisco sour, but they don't have liquor license...so just bring your favorite wine. The service was good although I must say they can totally take advantage that there are so many people that are new to peruvian food, so introducing their favorites dishes (hence upselling) would not be a bad idea. The area is quiet, although parking can be a pain. I was pleased that I drove almost 40 minutes to this place and it didn't disappoint. Desserts were great too."

Stage Left has been ranked among the best restaurants in NJ since it’s opening in 1992. The focus is on the best local ingredients in the kitchen and an award-winning wine cellar stocked with wonderful gems from $30-$3000. Service is friendly and knowledgeable. Our elegant private dining rooms and rustic wine cellar are perfect for business or romance. NJ Monthly – Best American Restaurant / NY Times – Excellent / Star Ledger – 4 Stars / Wine Spectator – Best of Award of Excellence For reservations in the bar area of Stage Left, please note this in your reservation notes. There is limited seating in that area so we may reach out to you if we do not have availability.

"I really like the food here, their burger is indeed the best one in NJ. Their menu is definitely not for everyone since they use ingredients not found on your daily diet, so if you want to try something out of the ordinary, this is the place to go...of course you are going to pay for it, but it is worth it. If you cannot not afford it, don't event bother to come here so you complain later about how expensive it is. If you want to make it a special night, go for it. The servers are very knowledgeable and this is not the place for you to leave unhappy, if there is anything you are not satisfied with, say something (tactfully) and they will make it right! If they have it available, try their lobster lasagna with truffles. It is to die for."
