Have had lunch and dinner at this upscale restaurant in Chatham. Great service and nicely decorated. Bar scene has always been busy when I have been there. Food is very good but not exceptional considering it is fairly expensive. It is definitely NOT a family...More

Menu has some good items but the price of alcohol can be overly overpriced. A Macallan 12 with about 1 ounce was $21. Compared to the Hilton at Short Hills at $19 and the overall average everywhere else is about $15.
