There are always several excellent choices, and we've never been disappointed. The go-to favorites are Peking duck with red cabbage and wild rice, and roasted half chicken with taragon. The atmosphere is pleasant and serene, and we always enjoy their cocktails or wine.

A charming family owned French restaurant. Food is individually cooker but you won't mind waiting as the restaurant is so relaxing. You turn off a busy street into the parking lot in the back and when you walk in you are in a different world....More

Great for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Everything is delicious and French. Full bar too. Linen tablecloths...a bit of that old world feeling.

To be fair - we dined on a Tuesday night. Only busy table in entire restaurant, very quiet. Owner is pulling of a one man show - greeter, hostess, Barkeeper, waiter ( chef????) all in one. Food is very average and overpriced. Snails were good...More

This restaurant consistently makes the NJ Monthly top 10 restaurants in NJ. I don't get it. The food is ok - I'm always left feeling like it could be better (over cooked fish, under seasoned chicken, etc). The space is large with little ambiance. The...More

We have been going to Verjus off and on since they opened many years ago. We especially love their Friday night themed dinners which include Shore night, German night, Italian night and others. Friday night Bistro nights are prix fixe, and are a fun break...More
