We enjoyed our dining experience here--and you can also go upstairs to the wine bar in the lounge and relax. These folks are from the Village in NYC--lived in NJ--and have created ambiance and good food.

Caprice is a great restaurant but I was a bit disappointed the last time I came. I ordered their specialty "the waterzooi" and it was good with lots of different seafood but I thought the fish and shrimp had a farm raised taste which brought...More
