Dinner on a September Monday. Started with glasses of champagne. Appetizers included the scallops and a gemelli/lamb special. Wonderful! Main courses included the cod and a monkfish special. Wonderful! The wine list had a $45 white burgundy that was very good. Highly recommended!

Ninety Acres at Natirar

The Natirar Estate, a nearly 500-acre site atop the mountains of Peapack, is the home of Ninety Acres Culinary Center, which consists of a cooking and wine school, and a restaurant offering unique and exciting menus featuring produce and livestock fresh from the estate farm. The restaurant, along with our private party facilities, redefines what a quality dining experience can and should be. We offer an a la carte menu in our dining rooms, a light bar menu in our bar and lounge areas, and the "Bring Me Food" experience, our interpretation of the tasting menu concept, exclusively in our kitchen dining area.

Let me get straight to the point – we both were very disappointed in our $105 per person “Bring Me Food” dinner.

We had used this dining option twice before, where you are just given a list of ingredients that the Chef turns into 5 to 7 tastings. The first 2 dinners were, although expensive, exceptional and 5 Star experiences.

I’m afraid this time it was just a very expensive experience.

The over 25 ingredients all sounded interesting and ranged from Bay scallops to Venison to Walleye to Organic mushrooms. The presentation of each dish was beautiful but that’s where the magic stopped.

The “looking forward” to the next exciting plate was not there on this visit with each one just being OK to Good.

The staff, and we met at least 5, were all enthusiastic, professional and knowledgeable but not one ever asked, as we moved from course to course, what we thought of our meal.

So with 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine, tax and before tip, the bill came to $282 and I’m sorry to say not worth that price. I’m not a believer in “well I guess the kitchen had an off night” – especially at these prices.

Wife and I made reservations (which you will need) for a Saturday night and it didnt disappoint. Everything is fresh and delicious. She had the grilled shrimp with cabbage and she loved. Her grouper was also outstanding, Had the file which was good too. Its a BYOB and its small place with great food.

Lil Pickles Deli

Reviewed By MitchPhyllis65 - Morristown, New Jersey

Lil’ Pickles is a good looking and clean deli which has a decent breakfast & lunch menu. They offer up unique Breakfast Bomber Sandwiches like the B-52 Bomber. My wife and I stopped by for lunch the other day and split a “Pickle’s California Cheesesteak” which turned out tasty & filling and reasonably priced.

I frequent this place for lunch and have never been disappointed. The menu is more extensive than you would expect given the size of the restaurant, but my favorites are the daily specials which are always changing and delicious. Great service and very reasonable prices too.

The best thing about this Starbucks is that it is located in Pluckemin, a historic village in the Revolutionary War. How many people in Starbucks even know about it? Not many, if any. George Washington rode his horse along these roads. Gen. Knox had his Artillery Encampment nearby! Wow. That's pretty amazing to think about when you're drinking your Pike's Place.

Coco Luxe

Reviewed By Carlos23 - Sao Paulo, SP

Great place for a quick (or long) coffee/tea stop or for a refueling on a bike ride going through Peepack. They also have excellent pastries and I do recommend their cakes if you need a last minute one for a party - just check their closing hours since there may not be one left available late Saturday or Sunday....

Cold Stone Creamery

Reviewed By Dianna W - Lancaster, Pennsylvania

We were visiting relatives in the area on this beautiful warm day, and five of us went into this store after a walk. The young man who got our ice cream combinations didn't seem to know what he was doing. He was slow, and asking him to put our choices into cups (bowls?) seemed to throw him off. We all ended up with mushy, almost melted bowls of ice cream, and none of our bowls were more than about half full. And at their prices!?! Total disappointment.

Went there to celebrate my 75th birthday with my children, son-in-law and significant other. Service was OK but nothing special. They served us bread at the start of the meal but didn’t come back to see if anyone wanted anymore. We order two of each of the oysters And didn’t get a good explanation of which was which from the server. Had to ask twice for fresh pepper for one of the appetizers. When we asked for horseradish we were served prepared horseradish with too much vinegar. My significant other ordered the pasta special which she felt was mediocre at best. I ordered the special lobster pot pie which turned out to be a deconstructed pot pie. The sauce was very good however the lobster tail was overcooked and rubbery and the potatoes were undercooked and hard. Under ordinary circumstances I would’ve sent it back. The ice cream dessert was very good and I appreciated getting the chocolates and card from the staff.

Reviewed By Andrew K - Warren, New Jersey

My wife and I went to dinner at 6:15pm. The early seating was nice since the restaurant noise level was low. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass and I had the Lobster Casserole. Both were terrific. The Sea Bass was fixed perfectly, moist and tender. The Lobster Casserole was also done extremely well. Both were large portions that more than satisfied us. Try this place for a relaxing dinner.
