Dino's

Formerly named Roman Cafe

Reviewed By SAILSOC381 - Haworth, New Jersey

Kudos to Dino for doing what all restaurants should do: the "specials" are in writing with prices and the prices are in line with the regular menu items. Restaurants that price the "specials as much as 25% higher than regular menu items tick me off. That being said: the food is consistently very good, portions ample, service thoroughly professional, ambiance pleasing, noise level tolerable.....all in all nothing not to like....even if they did neglect to bring us the complementary salad.

Expect the tab to approach $1125 with tax and tip.

Samdan Restaurant

Reviewed By Peter G - Harvard, Massachusetts

SAMDAN is our favorite restaurant in Cresskill. We return there as often as we can -- sometimes solo but usually with family or friends. The menu of Turkish delicacies is varied and almost everything we've tasted there has been delicious. Grilled meats like lamb or chicken or beef shish-ke-bab are always delicious; so are the fish dishes as well as vegetarian specialties with eggplant, hummus, chickpeas and other ingredients. We've never been disappointed at Samdan!

Service is always welcoming and friendly. Prices are reasonable. Go for lunch -- go for dinner! We'll continue dining at Samdan as often as we can!

Andiamo Restaurant

Reviewed By Maocr27 - Ogunquit, Maine

My husband and I visited Andiamo's last week end. The food and service were both wonderful . The minute we arrived we were warmly greeted and made to feel welcome. The menu is extensive and in addition there are many "blackboard " specials. Everything we ordered was delicious.

Always go there if I have to take something that is a bit more classy and for a select group of people we are visiting. Bakery items are now more reasonably priced and the quality has continued to excel.

The Fish Dock

The Fish Dock is a fresh fish market that specializes in fish from the pristine waters of Iceland. The aim is to supply customers with the freshest fish available. To ensure this, the fresh catch is flown in, which means that less than 48 hours from when it was caught it is in the table.

Reviewed By XSki007 - New Jersey

A great selection of the very best fish offered up at fair prices by a knowledgable staff. We were happily surprised to see the platter menu and the daily lunch specials. We have to come back for those!!
