What an amazing experience from start to finish! The ambience is perfect; the decor is high-class rustic, providing a really charming and welcoming, yet upscale vibe. I'm normally not a cocktail person but their list was too exciting to say no too--my mule was absolutely delicious and they had my husband's favorite local beer on tap. The menu was mouth-watering and we struggled to decide, so opted for multiple appetizers (pork belly and fried goat cheese). All of the food had gorgeous presentation and was SOO DELICIOUS. We will be back for sure!!

Hint: Grab a reservation if you're going on a Friday or Saturday night! I looked at about 6 on Friday and was able to get a reservation for 8...sure glad I did because it was packed!!

Always good food and many delicious specials. My husband ordered the Diver Scallops which were cooked perfectly and great quality for a non-seafood restaurant. Always interesting drink specials and good wine selection. I go with my favorite stuffed turkey burger 🍔 and a Gusto salad never disappoints! Wish the outside dining wasn't on Route 18 to curb the noise but still a nice set up. Friendly casual to dressy large bar area.

Always greeted politely and seated at once. The servers are always friendly and professional. The menu has something for everyone and always brought out without much wait. Also a nice selection of wine and beer and the mixed drinks are always excellent. This has been our go to place and never disappoints!

Quaint place, a little loud, voices carry a lot, food is good I had French cut chicken stuffed with goat cheese, very tasty and tender, mushroom risotto could have used more mushrooms, the pappardelle is a great dish as well.

Food is good, reservation was honored on time, server was attentive and courteous. They had no light (clear) rum. Really? A full bar and no light rum? We were told the shipment didn’t come in.

Usually I would recommend gusto but we went there for Mother’s Day and our service was pretty bad. The waitress had zero personality and just didn’t seem to care about our experience. Also my husband wanted French toast, as it was on the menu, and you were “sold out” of it. How do you sell out or bread??? The waitress was so blah that she didn’t even try to suggest anything else for him to order. She just could care less and it showed. I go to gustos a lot. My friends and I go at least once every couple of months for dinner and always have a good experience. Just very disappointing.

Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch! They were very kind and considerate, asking if upstairs seating was ok. Food was incredible - French toast, fresh berries, crispy bacon and a kale goat cheese omelette with balsamic ... wow! This place is truly a gem in central NJ. Service with a smile, polite, professional, even folks who were not our servers were stopping by to say hello. Casual and fun atmosphere. Everyone around us was also having a fabulous time!

Server did not have much of a personality, seemed like they didn't want to be there

Surprised that they didn't have any flavored vodka's. Seems pretty standard these days.

Calamari appetizer was excellent, as well as, the teriyaki wings, but the noodle bowl with shrimp was not good at all.

So, very nice looking place, cool atmosphere. Workers were nice. We did not have a great experience though. We had issue with an over head vent dripping so we were moved, no problem. Then when our food came out one of our plates had to be sent back due to a hair in it. The manager was very kind, professional and apologetic. They gave my friend a gift card and even comped our drinks. So all and all very excellent handling of the situation. The clam appetizer was extremely salty. The tacos and goat cheese appetizer were very good. Probably will not be back for food maybe just for drinks.
