Bad service and long waiting time.

Was at this restaurant with my friends and they were spoken down to by the so called manager and hostess . After waiting 1 hour and 30 minutes we were given a table by the rest room. When my friend complained about it and that she wanted a better table the hostess became angry . My friend said to me this is bs the hostess turned around and yelled at her asking her why she cursed at her my friend said I was saying that to my friend not you. This woman called the police and the policeman must not have anything better to do in Hackensack , N.J. We were told to leave that we were not going to be serviced . We left and will never go back there again . Restaurant employees should respect everyone and not have a chip on there shoulders.

Awesome even though it's not all it once was

The artichoke/ spinach dip is fresh, hot, flavorful and nearly perfect. They used to have salted chips, which I find is now lacking. My friends prefer the unsalted variety though.

All of the entrees are just lovely, and are presented without pretentiousness. The prime rib, spare ribs, chicken dishes, fish specials… all just great. Super thin french fries are irresistible, and the veggies are always properly cooked.

The ambiance is perfect for a date, a dinner with friends, or an outing with clients. Tables are intimate and candlelit, but there is plenty of space if you wish to reduce the intimacy. The wait staff is sharply dressed in black and is always professional and attentive.

They recently got rid of some dishes that are sorely missed (namely the flying chicken platter and the ice cream sundae). But it’s still worth going for a terrific meal.
