This was my third time dining at TOG. This visit I dined with 7 friends for a birthday dinner and we got to try a bunch of things. We actually ordered way too much food! We had two orders of the meatballs which were very tasty, but a little too greasy for me. We also had two orders of pan fried eggplant which I would go so far to say is the best eggplant I have ever had! We ordered zucchini cakes as well which were also quite yummy. The appetizers are a nice portion size so next time we would only need one eggplant, and one meatball. There were leftovers to take home. I tried a lemon chicken soup which was also tasty, but I was hoping for lentil instead. We ordered a Greek salad and a horitaki salad both which very good, but we definitely didn't need them amongst our 5 plates of appetizers. For dinner were were all so full, but everyone enjoyed gyros (most were packed to go after a few bites) and I had a lamb shish platter. The lamb wasn't as good as the previous time I ordered it. This time it was slightly more overcooked than I would like, but still enjoyable. I highly recommend giving this place a try! Everything is good, fresh, and flavorful!

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.

Had dinner reservations here for an early Valentine's Day dinner celebration. Our waiter Franklin was impeccable with his service and making sure we had everything we needed during our dinner (we hope our tip reflected our happiness with him!). Best lobster bisque we ever had...creamy with large chunks of lobster in it. The Filet Mignon, Tenderloin, Lobster tails and South African Lobster Tail was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Not lost were the sides too...probably the best Au Gratin potatoes I've ever had. Dessert was fantastic too which we weren't able to finish due to being so stuffed from everything we had prior. Can't comment on the wine selection as we didn't order drinks but it looks like they had a nice wine collection.
While this meal was more on the pricey side of what we normally spend when we go out, I knew what the prices were going to be before hand and I thought everything we had was reasonably priced for what we got.

I either order for take out or dine in if its a weekday lunch because its less crowded. There are maybe 30 seats on the side to dine in so very small. My favorite dinner is the penne vodka with shrimp & scallops. You cant go wrong with anything, oh and like most local spots its BYOB.

Here we finally found fresh donuts that taste right. Ordered the Classic and Artisan variety and the Raspberry-Vanilla flavored Latte . The Jersey Cream and Jersey Corn donuts are also tasty. Location is slightly out of the way but parking is excellent. For real ingredients with less chemicals I am willing to pay more. Place was clean and the service excellent.

This is a destination restaurant - if you let it be. Order the exciting items, not old mainstays and you'll be impressed. The service is very polished and they pay a lot of attention to your overall experience. Sit in the bar room if you can. Reservations strongly recommended. Swordfish is amazing.

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.

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.

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.

I was craving for chicken bbq and found this on tripadvisor.
It is situated along the road so you won't miss it. Upon entrance, we were greeted with servers and had a table right away. Few non-alcoholic drinks. Menu is simple but food is soo great. They have two kinds of bbq sauce, almost the same taste but totally different texture. I hope they come up with different bbq sauce to pair it with a specific meat.
Big servings and price is just right. A little noisy, you have to speak a little louder. Server is greaaaat!
Will be back.
