We recently attended a small wedding in Princeton and the reception was held at this restaurant. The food was excellent and so was the friendly service. If we are ever back in this area again, we will definitely revisit this establishment.

Great food, friendly service. Never had a bad meal. Price is reasonable. This is where I always go when meeting with vendors from out of town, they even insist that is where we meet.
