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 />

"This is my second time here... Lots of choices on the menu... large portions,
Great ambiance... Had the fish platter... took half home... Have to take my 2 kids back who want to try it as well after they saw a picture of the platter and ate the leftovers...

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.

"I have gone to this restaurant for several business meetings and loved the decor and atmosphere. The food was ok but wanted to see what it was like to dine privately instead of having food brought to a meeting. Well I have to say the service was great. Waiter attentive. Food came out hot and there was a lot to choose from. I thought there was more hype than substance before I ate there.. But it was great... I woujld go there again and already made reservations... It is hard to get a reservation so plan ahead...."

"A lot of things in this place have to be tweaked. I dont think the wait staff... has gotten up to speed for a place that could be great considering the location. Took a long time to get the ordered bottle of wine. The waiter didnt seem confident. Food took a long time to come The Oysters... were not that good the Shrimp seemed like they were prepared hours ago. I have been here 3 times... in 6 months... so not the first time"
