I dined on a Wednesday evening, so the place wasn't that busy. Beautiful atmosphere and the booths have fabric dividers so it feels very private. Service was fabulous. I have heard the prices are quite expensive, but I thought it was reasonably priced for the offerings they had. Sushi was good, octopus was excellent and the entree was very good,... More

My husband took me here for an early birthday dinner on March 10, and I was truly blown away by the atmosphere and service. Our server (I can't remember his name now unfortunately) was incredibly attentive. My husband felt that his steak wasn't cooked as rare as he would have liked (it looked fine to me lol but I took...

Very sexy atmosphere The service is often slow and you could sit for awhile without being approached to put in a drink order. The food is excellent however not always consistent

Took my wife and 11 year old son out for dinner yesterday. Food was OK, but I would expect more from $112 per person fixed menu. Service was mediocre at best. Do not understand why this place is rated so high on Northern NJ romantic restaurant list. For me it was a one time deal. Would not go there again.

We enjoyed our meal here. They have a nice menu and everything we ordered was quite good. Try the octopus and definitely have the crab cakes (either as an appetizer or an entree). All of the fish dishes were delicious but be aware that the portion sizes are on the small side. I was surprised that there were some empty... More

Chakra screams "SEXY" and is the perfect place for a date night. My wife and I enjoyed a drink at the bar and sat in the comfy lounge area prior to our table being ready. Menu is very good. The grilled octopus appetizer was fantastic. My wife had the salmon and I had a chili-cinnamon sea bass that was out... More

We were a group of 11 people for Christmas Eve dinner and we all enjoyed the food we ordered. I ordered the rainbow roll to start which was fresh and delicious along with the crab cake entree. The crab cake dish was the star of the night for me with nice big chunks of crab meat. I also recommend the... More

I have frequented Chakra for quite a few years now and am always pleased how incredibly consistent it performs. Warm, personable and attentive service with high quality food & drinks at a very reasonable price-point. As a 5th generation restaurateur, I know this is no small feat, but Chakra is backed by a solid management couple, that gets everything right.... More

Its a restaurant that has a unique décor. Crowded even on a "slow" night. Waiter wanted us to order within 5 minutes of sitting down. I'm on a date not a 30 minute lunch. Food was very good but definitely need your wallet full to cover the tab no booze and ran me over $150 without tip. 2 appetizers, 2... More

The interior is very calming; gauze curtains separate the booths giving privacy without one feeling closed in. The service was excellent: attentive but not obtrusive. The hangar steak entre was an excellent choice as was the lamb with merguez sausage. A bit pricey, but definitely would go there again.
