Rock 'n' Joe Coffeehouse

Really good Coffee. Tasty Vibes!

Reviewed By KateAlways - New Jersey

Rockin' Joe's is a great meeting place if you're in a pinch. They have various coffee flavors from around the world and serve sandwiches and salads in generous portions. Service is friendly and the ambience is nostalgic. Rockin' Joe's would rock (pun intended) in a university campus setting.

Boulevard Five72

Reviewed By OtisNJ - New Jersey

Just back from the annual Dreyer Farms dinner in the field. From cocktails to tuna poke appetizer through the two entrees (Faroe Island Salmon and Angus Beef Filet) and dessert (dark chocolate & caramel mousse torte) everything was suburb. Chef Scott Snyder and his staff really hit one out of the park! The food combined with great wine, good weather and fun company for a perfect evening.

When can I sign up for next year?

Ok. This place had me at “hello lobster fra diavolo” with its amazing, giant messiness and flavors. This place gets very crowded and it’s not a romantic place - you come here to eat and socialize. The service is fast, friendly. Recommended for a fun, yummy night out.

First the good . . . THE FOOD. We started with the some kind of Spanish bean and potato soup, which was very tasty. We each ordered paella, one order of Paella Valencia, and one of Paella Marinera. The portions were large, and the paella delicious.

Now the not so good. The dining room is one big room, jammed with as many tables, chairs and people as they can possible fit. The have tried muting the noise in the room by covering two walls with sound-deadening material, but it's still very loud, very crowded, and has zero ambiance. Second, service is slow at best. Third, it's grossly overpriced considering the slow service and the loud cramped dining conditions. Too bad, because the food is good enough to command the high price ($100 for two of us, without any liquor), but not in such a pedestrian environment.

Kilkenny House

Reviewed By claimsgal - Union, New Jersey

Brought a friend here for lunch - service was great, food selections & portions were great! I got the adult Mac n cheese-filled with bacon, broccoli & a creamy white sauce- delicious. My friend had a lobster sandwich which she said was very good- we both brought 1/2 Home. The one downfall is that because it was lunchtime, it was pretty crowded with business folks & was noisy- it settled down once food was brought - a very welcoming place to visit

Cranford Vanilla Bean Creamery

Reviewed By FastAli - NJ

There are so many interesting and creative flavors to choose from here, but the only one you really need is the mint chip. Vanilla bean makes the best home made mint chip ever. It is creamy and simply perfect. The ice cream sandwiches are nice to take home to have in the freezer. It's a treat to come out and support this local small business whenever the ice cream craving strikes!

Since my childhood, this bakery, which used to be in Plainfield New Jersey, has provided us with delicious Italian rum cakes for family birthdays. Not only the rum cakes are exceptional, but the Italian pastries are second to none. Keep up the great work and providing wonderful service.

La Griglia Seafood Grill & Wine Bar

Reviewed By Randi S - Westfield, New Jersey

I have been to La Griglia many times and it is always terrific. Last night my husband and I went for dinner and it was a fantastic dining experience.

The service was exceptional - friendly and attentive without being overbearing.

The food was outstanding as well - my husband had oysters and then the special bone-in filet mignon, and I had the amazing burrata appetizer and the halibut special. Both the filet and halibut specials were so good, I hope they add them to the menu!

The ambiance in the restaurant is on the fancy side but not stuffy, which makes it feel like a special occasion when you eat there.

Convenient location in Kenilworth, right off the Parkway. Valet parking and coat check also convenient.

Overall a wonderful restaurant - I highly recommend La Griglia!

Very original dishes, big portions, tasty food, nice setting but a few things could be improved: music is too loud and the staff comes and interrupts too often.

Reviewed By GingerGinny - Scotch Plains, New Jersey

This restaurant feels a tiiiny bit on the fancier side, just a bit, so I always feel inclined to dress better than just jeans and a t-shirt. The name of the restaurant says it all because I think most everything on the menu includes garlic. Best of all is the endless freshly baked bread, roasted garlic, and pesto served before you order. You can just keep them coming. The menu has chicken, seafood, pasta, etc on it. Try the delicious baked brie.
