Amarone Ristorante

Probably eat in Amarone once or twice a month. Very consistent service, excellent menu and accommodating hosts (Nick and Nick). Kind of quiet, but nothing wrong with that.

B & W Bakery

Reviewed By Jesse P - Hackensack, New Jersey

They're famous for their crumb cake- and it may be the world's best.

We also love the Rainbow Cookies- they are also one of the best we've ever had!
Numerous other cookies & pastries we have had are excellent!

On the negative side we don't love the spice cake or the small hand-held fruit pies- but maybe we just don't care for these items in general.

Casual Habana Cafe

Reviewed By Douglas F - Garfield, New Jersey

If Cuban food is your thing then this is the place. All of the typical dishes are here and they're cooked to perfection. The Ropa Vieja is top on the list followed by the churrasco. Great home made empanadas with several typical of fillings. It's a bring your own bottle and the sangria is definitely worth an order. Prepare for a nice night out but make a reservation especially on the weekends because this place fills up quickly.

Had dinner tonight at Sparta Taverna with our girls soccer team and families - about 30 people. George and Anna rearranged the restaurant so we could all be together - which was great. The restaurant was very clean and nicely decorated, the food was very tasty and the service was super. The whole group was very happy and would definitely recommend this with or without a large party.

Bischoff's Ice Cream and Candy

Reviewed By UsHere4U - Teaneck, New Jersey

During the summer season and again in the Fall we bought various ice cream flavors here. Even though the ice cream was quite good the "stone-cold" arrogant attitudes displayed toward us soured our appetites. Observing the impatience and anger of the employees when children changed their mind shocked me. If they hate their jobs that much why not hire new employees ? Moreover, the portions on an Ice Cream Sunday are too small given the high prices. Why are the tables unsanitary knowing that families bring children to sit down for cakes and sweets ? With so few tables available one expects cleanliness but even the floor was sticky. There are cleaner places in Bergen County serving fine homemade ice cream where customers are accorded greater respect. We'll return during Summer 2018 to see if there is any improvement.

Balthazar Bakery

Reviewed By Fornovo - NJ

When Balthazar first opened, I worked within walking distance. Several years later, I was relieved that there would now be a longer distance between me and the bakery. But the memory of the buttery croissants, scones, and palmiers compels me back.

The key is to buy lots of stuff when you go. All of their items freeze remarkably well, even the delicate pastries. The breads are to die for, all of them, but especially the cranberry/pecan. Whatever is left of your baguette from the night before makes a delicious breakfast of toast (with real butter, preferably Irish, on top). And the staff is helpful and calm even in the face of an endless line of people asking questions about the ingredients.

Another piece of advice is not to focus on how much you just spent for treats and breads. It's worth it!

Been here forever. Get the hot dog ""ripped"- that is, well done so it splits on a toasted bun. Fries are outstanding. A vintage roadside stand that beats them all, anywhere. Very old with no updates. Kitchy. Outside bathroom and parking. Serves a good burger also. No gimmics.

Reviewed By Larry B

Love this restaurant for so many reasons. First the quality of food is excellent but the quantity of food is overwhelming. Most of the time when I go I have to take some home for leftovers.

The atmosphere is inviting and I love the culture of it all. The waiters are professional and helpful.

The sangria which you can get in pitchers might alone be the reason to go.

It’s just a few miles down the road from MetLife Stadium on a road that I never even knew existed until a few years ago because of this restaurant.

If you go into a giant or Jets game and you’re not tailgating and need a bite, give this place a chance ...you will not regret it.
