Came for dinner on a Wed nite; doors open at 6; we did not have a reservation but we were able to be seated right away since we got there as the place opened. This has been a place I have wanted to visit for awhile so very happy to have had the opportunity to do so. This is a... More

They have awesome desserts! The selection is great. They also have other food options like quesadillas and other snacks. Drinks are also available. Very dark inside it's fun to go with a date or a group of friends.

Went with boyfriend at the time, we got a corner booth....not going to lie, got a little claustrophobic. It's like you're inside of a mountain ride at Disney but can sit and eat in candle light...super dark. Great thing, it's BYOB and it's private so it can be romantic....it can also be a little awkward if you're in a corner... More

I usually go here for dinner and dessert and I love my experience every time. The most recent time I came here I just got dessert. My sister and I sat outside on a nice night in the beautiful courtyard. We both had the strawberry lemonade to drink (it's so sweet and delicious). My sister ordered the "Ariel" sundae and... More

They open at 4pm so no lunch. One of a kind ambience. Instead of tables there are private cute caves. I am not giving it 5* since veggie options are very less (maybe 2-3) and they are not very promising compared to the amazing non-veg food. There desserts are to die for. Never seen so many options just for dessert.

I kept telling my friends I wanted to do something different. So my daughter found this place and it is definitely unique. We had a blast and the food is good too!

Husband and I went for a date night. Ambiance was cute and different. Each seating looks like caves so you have a bit more privacy. Music was soft and light was dim. Service was good and even offered us free tea at the end which was extremely nice. The desserts were huge and delicious. You can't go wrong with any... More

The meal was outstanding in every way. The menu was varied for almost any taste. The service was impressive, I do not comprehend how anyone could give this restaurant a low score. It has rated as one of the best in NJ and I completely agree with that rating. It is indeed of the most unique restaurants I have been... More
