Being from Houston, I was very surprised to find a quality restaurant opened on Sunday for dinner. This place is a winner regardless of where it is located. The food was excellent, the service was top notched and it'S BYOB. This is one of Northern New Jersey's best kept secret. Will go there again on our next trip to NJ.
Thanks to our good friends for sharing.

We were in a time crunch because we had a tour appointment at 1:30. So we only had half an hour to eat lunch. The waiter was very accommodating to us & did everything he could to expedite our process! We could of just eaten at a fast food place I suppose but, this place sounded so good. I got a bowl of the soup (tomato basil) and a Cesar salad. They both were very good!! especially the soup. We enjoyed our short visit here & would go back if I was passing by. Nice service!

Great food. Wonderful host/owner
My only issue is that it can get a bit noisy
But it the end it's worth it!

I almost hate to share this local gem! Upscale casual, Italian; BYOB. Our most recent visit for Mother's Day was as expected: Pleasant, Unhurried, and Very satisfying! I've been enjoying GC for many years for both lunch and dinner! It is consistently delicious!

I was looking for someplace different to try and read about Gourmet Cafe on Trip Advisor. It is in a strip mall and is much better than it might appear from the outside. We had a lovely dinner. I started with the portobello mushroom with goat cheese and then had soft shell crabs which was a special. My husband started with mussels and then had pasta with crabmeat and smoked sausage which was also a special. Everything was delicious. The service was good and the seating comfortable. Although it is a small place, the tables are not crushed all together which was nice. Note it is BYOB and we were provided with a cooler to keep our wine cool. Prices were very fair. We will definitely return.
