Wonderful evening venue with an amazing view. The food is somewhat lacking in originality but it is New Jersey. I can say we enjoy visiting this restaurant whenever we are in New Jersey and want a more refined experience that is not a chain or in a mall. The food is fresh and well prepared, an amazing wine list great... More

He is so accommodating - anxious to please the customer. The Staff are warm and welcoming and Roger and Dan make sure everything runs smoothly and perfectly. The... More

This is one of the finest restaurants in the area. The approach road is through a park and offers valet parking. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and refined.

We were looking forward to the event but were disappointed because the place is totally outdated. The carpets, decor and furniture are still stuck in the 1980s/1990s. I hope they... More

Recently enjoyed a terrific day at the Highlawn- service, views and food were outstanding. I chose the salmon for my meal, which came with great bread on the table, a very fresh salad, and the dessert sampler of 5 mini tastes of delicious offerings. Would highly urge people to go here, it's a perfect way to spend a few hours... More

The food was delicious, the service extremely disappointing. The staff acknowledged the extreme delay of our entrees, but no attempt was made to mediate the situation. Was one of our favorite upscale local places; times have changed.

I had a speaking engagement upstairs at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The shrimp was amazing, but the lamb was my favorite. The view made the food even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

The food always was great and the company (visitors or clients) consistently has been impressed. We never were disappointed.
