Food Ok to pretty good, but the basics were really way off. First of all, the water is tap water and obviously Bound Brook has lousy water and it was awful with chlorine. They should fill the glasses with bottled water, a little extra touch...More

Was here with a small party and the food was excellent. From appetizers to entrees - a few who got veal dishes raved about them. Nice decor and service was great . Also a BYOB.
