"Lithos is by far the best Greek and Mediterranean restaurant in NJ. It is on par with the best in NYC and as authentic as Greece. Don't miss this wonderful dining experience. The Mezze and the Fresh Fish are not to be missed."

"Rare is a good, not great, Steakhouse. Our appetizers took over an hour to arrive, our steaks were on the overcooked side and the service was OK at best. Much improvement is required for it to rival many of the better NJ Steakhouses such as Roots, Rod's, etc. The only highlight was the Manager, who was very understanding and did his best to make it a nice evening for our group."

"Lithos is simply outstanding and as good, maybe even better, than the best Greek Restaurants in NYC (Milos, Kellari, etc.) The food, service, setting and atmosphere come together to consistently form a simply exceptional dining experience."

"Mompou Tapas is a wonderful addition to the Newark dining scene. The covered patio in the back is a gem, augmented by excellent service and a full bar and great beer list. The Flank Steak Sandwich, Chicken Meatballs, Stuffed Peppers and Grilled Octopus were outstanding."

STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Midtown is located in Midtown Manhattan, just steps from the bustling Theatre District. STK Midtown includes an outdoor patio and separate bar during summer months. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. With a female-friendly mindset, STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Shrimp Rice Krispies; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jump Lump Crab Salad.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

The name Ursino was inspired by the rich history of the colonial era Liberty Hall Estate (previously called Ursino), located on what is now part of the Kean University campus. The estate boasts a 4.5 acre farm, from which we harvest many of the ingredients used on our menu. Chef Peter Turso and his staff use these ingredients to create a menu that embraces Modern American cuisine. We also support local producers as much as possible; not only in our menu selections, but in our wine, beer and cocktail offerings too. <br />Our goal is to provide a memorable, quality dining experience for every guest that arrives at our door. With knowledgeable and attentive service, along with expertly prepared food second to none, we aspire to be considered by our guests as one of the top restaurants in New Jersey.

Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House<br /><br />Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.<br /><br />The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.

"Another unbelievable experience at Rod's! This time, the Keller Family Special NY Sirloin and a blackened Delmonico Steak with the Truffled Risotto! Simply fantastic! Do not miss what is arguably one of the best steakhouses in the Tri-State region."

"Rod's is perhaps the best steakhouse in NJ. They are consistently delivering an outstanding dining experience. Try the Kansas City Steak or the Cowboy Steak done the Keller way. It doesn't get better than that!"

From the moment you enter, tones of old world yellows, stone fireplaces, wrought iron cellar gates and sconces, soft candlelight, coves with upholstered sofa seating and friendly staff, it's an undeniable inviting space, nothing short of extraordinary. Two special occasion tables with antique throne chairs and live piano music add to the intimacy. Two romantic dining rooms cater to an elegant crowd, while the long narrow bar gathers a friendly and fun bunch nightly.<br /><br><br><br />The cuisine truly upholds the name of Fine Portuguese/Spanish Dining, seafood and fish, organic meats, the freshest ingredients and to maintain the tradition, huge portions are to be expected. The menu is seasonal and in addition to a varied selection of delectable dishes to satisfy any palette, daily specials are always featured. The wine list with over 180 selections is an ambitious one that keeps growing, but sure not to disappoint the discriminating connoisseur.<br /><br />

"Adega Grill is a truly authentic Portuguese / Spanish restaurant in Newark. Don't miss the paella, chourico portugues and the grilled octopus, among many of the unbelievable dishes we have had. After dinner, enjoy a night cap and cigar on their outdoor patio, while enjoying good music and fun crowds."

Strip House Midtown at 44th Street brings all the Strip House signatures to a brand new bi-level space for lunch, dinner and private dining. Visit the new NYC location for a classic cocktail at the bar, or a full steakhouse experience. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, in a siren red interior where old world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut isn’t the only thing to marvel upon...walls are adorned with original Studio Manasse prints of 1930s burlesque stars.

"Strip House Midtown was excellent. Definitely one of the best steakhouses in the City. Started with a classic Manhattan, which was superb. The Seafood Platter is of the freshest variety, the Kobe Strip Sirloin is exceptional as are all the sides, especially the fries cooked in goose fat."
