We had a big family gathering with some very picky eaters attending and we ordered the entire meal catered from River Edge Cafe. We couldn't have been more pleased with each and every dish. We feasted on Homemade hummus and grape leaves then went onto main dishes of kofta ( perhaps a bit too spicy for the younger set but great for the adults), lamb chops, chicken kebabs, fragrant rice and fabulously grilled vegetables. Everyone ate to their heart's content and each dish received rave reviews. Next time I would try to order less food so there would be room for the delicious desserts. The next time I need a catered dinner, I know exactly who to call!

So we tried this restaurant for the first time with the family for brunch today b/c it's a buffet. We figured we got to try a variety of items at once to see if we would like the food. The selection was not bad. However, some stuff was sitting there for awhile and was getting really dry. As more people came in, the kitchen struggled to keep up with the food. Instead of an authentic chicken they originally had, they brought out fried fish and fries??? That's not what we came here to try....They charged us $20 per person for a basic lunch Nothing extravagant. Well overpriced. Will not be going to this place again. .

Three of us ate at the River Edge. THe owners are delightful and the food is authentic middle eastern. The selection of middle eastern baked goods alone is worth the trip. The falafel plate makes a great lunch and comes with a delicious salad.

Looking for something better than burgers, we tried a Mediterranean dinner. Set back in a mini mall in Unionville, Rivers Edge has sit down or take out service. The take out service we ordered was quick and courteous. We started with a great cheese quesadilla for appetizer. For entrees, the oven roasted eggplant was great with tabouli. The oversized falafel with hummus was delicious with a side of tahini to complement the meal. We will order from here again sometime.

Took a gamble and was pleasantly surprised. A mix of eastern Mediterranean cuisines served in a simple cafe atmosphere provides a welcome change to the often very average New England fare.

We shared a nicely spiced Falafel appetizer then Lamb Tagine & a mixed grill of lamb , chicken kebab & shish kebab. Both were excellent.

Headed back for the Saturady breakfast experience!
