To be fair - we dined on a Tuesday night. Only busy table in entire restaurant, very quiet. Owner is pulling of a one man show - greeter, hostess, Barkeeper, waiter ( chef????) all in one. Food is very average and overpriced. Snails were good but tiny portion, duck confit was dry and red cabbage bland. We will not be... More

This restaurant consistently makes the NJ Monthly top 10 restaurants in NJ. I don't get it. The food is ok - I'm always left feeling like it could be better (over cooked fish, under seasoned chicken, etc). The space is large with little ambiance. The one plus is that it does have a liquor license with an affordable wine list

We have been going to Verjus off and on since they opened many years ago. We especially love their Friday night themed dinners which include Shore night, German night, Italian night and others. Friday night Bistro nights are prix fixe, and are a fun break from the regular (somewhat limited but delicious) menu. We also love Friday night Bistro nights... More

We went to Verjus, the green grape juice, for the first, but sure not for the last time! The escargots en cocotte were outstanding! Simply great! Out of this world. No comparison to the regular garlic-butter stuff. The sauce had a subtle acidity to it, perfect with our Sancerre. Duck terrine was very light, almost a mousse. Flank steak with... More

If you like large portions and rustic but flavorful fare this is the place for you. It's not too precious or fussy. Just great food, wonderful decor and comfortable and friendly. Go there!!! I been there several times now and keep bringing friends.

My wife and I made an Open table reservation for Tuesday night. Both the owners greeted us and attended to us all evening. For apps we had the buttermilk bread crusted crab cakes and wasabi sauce and the escargot. We both agree that the crab cakes were the best that we have ever tasted. They were firm, not a hint...

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. My favorite appetizer is the escargot. I enjoy it so much, I have never tried the others, but my dinner companions have liked their selections as well. We have had duck, beef bourguignon, duck, and a few other main dishes. All have been wonderful. Desserts are also... More

Consistently an exceptional place to dine. Every dish is perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The ambiance is exactly what a restaurant should aspire to, comfortably lit, never noisy (something you can't say about most NYC restaurants), friendly with an efficient staff. The Beef Bourguignon is "World Class" and worth visiting whenever it is on the menu.

Lovely restaurant tucked away in Maplewood, New Jersey. Excellent food and service. Presentation of meal and ambiance of restaurant was extremely inviting. A repeat visit is inevitable.

I heard a lot about this restaurant, so I was excited to dine here. Overall, I would have to say I was disappointed. The service was fine, although they did charge a $20 corkage fee if you BYOB but I found a bit presumptuous for Maplewood NJ. The appetizers were good- we ordered the escargot, beet salad and fois gras.... More
