PLEASE CALL THE RESTAURANT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OUR BMF (TASTING MENU) EXPERIENCE<br />The Natirar Estate, a nearly 500-acre site atop the mountains of Peapack, is the home of Ninety Acres Culinary Center, which consists of a cooking and wine school, and a restaurant offering unique and exciting menus featuring produce and livestock fresh from the estate farm. The restaurant, along with our private party facilities, redefines what a quality dining experience can and should be. We offer an a la carte menu in our dining rooms, a light bar menu in our bar and lounge areas, and the "Bring Me Food" experience, our interpretation of the tasting menu concept, exclusively in our kitchen dining area.

"My husband and I celebrated my birthday here and agreed that it was one of the best dining experiences ever.
The setting is magical and magnificent; it was hard to leave the beauty of the restaurant, outdoor patios and lush estate grounds.
Our wine and cocktails were exceptional. The wine list is tremendous and the sommelier was helpful but in no way intrusive.
Every staff person was friendly and helpful and made us feel special. Each one of them seemed passionate about what they do.
The tasting menu is filled with the freshest most flavorful locally grown vegetables and clean fish and meats and the herbs and spices and food combinations melted in our mouths at every course. The chef is a genius;I highly recommend this culinary treasure.

"I have dined at this restaurant several times now and love bringing guests to experience this beautiful setting and the fresh and clean food they serve. The crude is to die for especially the lobster one. The salads are fresh, pizzas are crispy and flavorful, and the pasta combinations excellent.
I truly love sitting in this magically beautiful room day and night even for sitting and sipping a glass of wine.

"Annisa is a special occasion dining experience with outstanding food, wine and service.
We ordered the tasting menu and each course was filled with wonderful flavors and textures.
The sommelier was attentive to our description of what we love in a wine and suggested the perfect bottle.
The room is quiet and serene which set the stage for a perfect evening of excellent food, wine, and conversation.

"Our dinner at Massimo's was superb. We felt like we had been transported to Italy with beautiful setting and music, thoughtful service and excellent food. When they ran out of the lobster special for the night the chef went out and got a lobster and whipped up another portion for us. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who truly appreciates great food and service."
