One of FDU's hospitality alumni manages this place and indeed it was an excellent experience for our lunch meeting. The place is very clean and neat, we were greeted with a smile and very politely, and sat at a really nice table in the main...dining area. Great for a business meeting, good ambiance but not overwhelming. The food was really good. All three of us got salads- 2 cobb with chicken and lobster and one calamari. I will be going back again for sure and bringing donors and partners of the University.More

I Invited my adult daughter to dinner for her final night in NJ. She chose oysters and duck and I had the soup and sea bass- all of the food was delicious. There was simply a big miss front of house. We arrived on a...super cold night bundled in heavy coats, were greeted and escorted to our table. The coat room, offered to guests who arrived after us was apparently not on offer for us. We were seated at a 2-top so I sat on my coat while I dined. When I booked the reservation I was shown 2 special offerings; 50% off select wines and a 4 course tasting menu, yet neither of those were offered. So I requested a wine list and still the online offering was not mentioned. Curious, I asked and was given the key (bottles have an asterisk on the menu) I also asked about the tasting menu and was then offered that menu option as well. Why would you not offer these specials to your guests? We settled on regular menu and a wine special- a Joseph Drouhin Chablis as I had recently visited their sister winery in Oregon. As said previously food and drink were great. Final insult, check delivered with the wine at full cost. I just ended up being annoyed at the tiny misses and insults that were sprinkled through what I had hoped to be a lovely evening. It feels to me that assumptions were made about 2 women dining and what our wants and needs might be. Blue Morel, it would be great if you could get the front of house to meet the level of your food because to me it was just a complete disconnect.More

My husband and I grabbed a quick drink and some oysters at the bar one night. We live close and always wanted to try it out. One bartender was very pleasant and accommodating. As for the other bartender on staff, it seemed to be more...of a chore for her to answer some questions or serve us. Great drink selection, oysters were on the smaller side. Not going to go back. More for those who are traveling/visiting.More

Dinner with my sister, Aunt and Uncle. A lovely wine list and beer list (draft beers would be a nice option). I had appetizers as my entree; Crab cake and the smallest clams casino I have every had, they were also delicious ($3 per clam)....Service was excellent and the fries were a complete hit. Mussels were perfectly prepared but perhaps a day too old.More

This is a very fine restaurant located within the Westin hotel. I attended a business function and we met in the cocktail bar which is well stocked. I noted a large selection of Whisky focusing on Glenfidich, Balvenie and Macallan. The bar staff were friendly...and knowledgable. The Resturant was nicely laid out and the staff again were very friendly. Considering we were a party of 20 they coped very well. The food varied and tasty while the wine list extensive. Overall a really nice location and ideal for both couples and larger parties. Recommended.More
