Although my wife had been here before this was my first time dining here. We shared a Caesar Salad ($8) and the addition of grilled chicken ($3). It was enough for two and had a very generous serving of thin grilled chicken breast. Overall a good choice but it could have used some additional dressing and larger pieces of the... More

I really wanted it to be good. I selected eggplant parm... how could it ever be wrong in an Italian restaurant? It was wrong! Rubbery and weird... not fresh! My friend was taking me out so I just picked around it and ate the pasta. One other thing if you are cleaning a table next to someone eating no big... More

We had pizza and salad. The thin crust pizza was very good. Fresh ingredients, nice and hot. Staff was friendly.

Its been two years since my last review, but not two years since our last visit - as we like this place. The Eggplant al Forno appetizer is good for those with a big appetite. Its a entree-sized meal for most folks - and its really good. This trip I had a special... Gargonella Pasta [$19], Homemade pasta sautéed with... More

My cousin uses our place as her halfway stop in her travels. We usually give her a taste on NJ's BYOB restaurants. Tuesday night visit. Nice specials. I had one (swordfish) and my cousin the fungi ravioli. Both excellent. My wife was a little disappointed with the pasta primavera. Needed more veggies. It was not a special. So specials rule....

My friend and I stopped here after being on the interstate all day. He likes to eat at local restaurants, so we got off the interstate onto Route 22. The restaurant is not easy to spot from the highway. It is called Kirsten's Italian Grill. The service is very slow. We had a surly, very unpleasant waitress. Imagine a very... More

My wife and I dined here this weekend after a "decade-long" hiatus (I'd rather not get into detail as to why the long separation). The food was good, the service was very good, and the option of being a BYOB is attractive to the cost-conscious couples and families. I wasn't floored by our Chicken Francaise entrees, though the portions were... More

I also wanted to like this restaurant more. The last time two times I was there, I was there for dinner. The menu seems to ALWAYS be the same! Their Italian food is good, but nothing special. I got a dish that said it came with asparagus and it had only a few little pieces--maybe one stalk's worth! The service... More

Kirsten"s is located on the outside corner of a small strip mall right on Route 22 in Lebanon. It's one o our favorite restaurants in Hunterdon County. We'll often eat at the counter in front of the brick pizza oven where we can keep warm on a chilly night and watch our pizza and appetizers get prepared right in front... More
