This will be my third visit to The Edge Restaurant, and once again the food and service was exceptional. Our waterways spot on.The steaks were cooked perfect and the wine list by bottle and glass was great. And I was happy to see that the bartender and staff was on top of cleaning everything. I will return again soon.

Seafood night on Wednesdays is awesome and the band that plays jazzy versions of current pop music is amazing!

The food and ambiance is great. I like that they just introduce a raw bar selection on Wednesdays and little things like that on different days. On the menu, I would like to see more fish dishes such as a Chilean sea bass or cod fish. I would also like the service to be a little faster and pay attention when a customer asks for butter or bread so that you don't wait 15 to 20 mins later to get what you asked.

My wife and I have been to the Edge a few times now and it’s always a good experience. Food is excellent and though it’s not inexpensive it is reasonably priced. We will continue to frequent this place.

We were at the Edge for the first time for a birthday celebration. Lovely and different ambiance. The food was delicious, although the kitchen did have some slow time in getting all our food to the table for our dinners. Our server Mark was attentive and very friendly, as were the owners who stopped by to welcome us to their restaurant. Our drinks took a bit of time to show up, although the bottle of wine was there quickly for the two folks drinking wine at the start. Our appetizers were excellent and we were treated to a "free" one when one of our appetizers was not ready with the rest of them. We had a similar problem with the dinners - one was not ready with the others, but all the food was plentiful and delicious. We all enjoyed our various desserts and coffee. It was a wonderful evening and it was extra special to not be "rushed" through our meal. We will be back!

We absolutely love The Edge! To enjoy a wonderful night out together at such a lovely establishment. Jimmy our server was such a delight- friendly and warm. The General Manager was so welcoming and went out of his way to make sure we had a superb night including great recommendations (bronzino!). We started with the veal meatballs and the beet salad which were both great and will order again. I ordered the bronzino and my husband had the salmon. The bronzino was the best I’ve ever had and I have to admit the skin was my favorite part! The salmon was moist and flavorful, he really enjoyed the sauce over it. To finish the night we had the cheesecake and chocolate mousse. I am not a cheesecake lover but I will definitely going back to have it again! All in all what a wonderful night out! Great ambiance, food and service!

Great experience. First Valentines Day dinner with my girlfriend. From the manager to the server and everyone in between were excellent! Food was delicious, kudos to the chef. Drinks were on point, very talented bartenders. Braiden our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. He was very professional, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend The Edge, especially for those special occasions. We will be back!

Beautiful when you walk in and as a whole the restaurant is gorgeous. Unfortunately, where we seated at really didn’t have a view of that. The high wall dividing our section didn’t let you see anything. I did have a view of what we believed to be 3, wine bottle refrigerators, which we thought was an odd place for them. Food was delicious, drinks were good, but overpriced for what was received. Service was good. Appetizer came in reasonable amount of time, however, the entrees took much longer. Menu is nice, but a bit limited, they have quite a few meat options, a few more fish and chicken options would be great. If you are a vegetarian, you don’t have many choices. Overall , very nice dining and would return for special occasions.

I recommend Jimmy to anyone eating there. He is a great server and goes out of his way to make it a pleasurable experience.

Food is great and drinks are great. Don't miss the chance to eat here!

The atmosphere was warm and inviting. There was a nice energy at the bar. The service was very good. My wife loved her entree. My entree was just okay. I plan to come back to try a different entree. I think this restaurant has the potential to be a permanent hotspot for Jackson residents.

I LOVE this place. EDGE did it right!!!!!! As soon as you walk in, you get the feeling that you are about to have a great time. The ambiance is upscale but fun. Light music sets a great mood and the elevated bar is perfect for a pre dinner cocktail. The food is rich and delicious, complimented by great service. The entire staff is excellent and I can’t wait to go back. If you are in the mood to take your significant other out for a nice night out or just a boys or girls night...... you can’t go wrong. BTW....... the cocktail menu and beer menu is one of the best I’ve seen. Great selection! 5 stars for the EDGE!!!!! Well worth the drive from Freehold, Howell, Toms River, Brick or Lakewood! If your within 30 minutes drive, you should give it a shot. Well worth the Drive.

For Valentines Day my girlfriend and I wanted to try out the Edge. As we both have spent the majority of our lives in the Howell and Jackson area we have been to pretty much every restaurant in the area. I knew that this wasn’t going to be the least expensive food option in the area. We felt the food was delicious and really enjoyed the decor and the vibe. When it was being built I was skeptical of having a fine dining option in that stretch of road .. after having been there I can honestly say I absolutely will be back. It stood out to me and would recommend it to my friends

Our second time eating here. The food is SO AMAZING!!! The restaurant is gorgeous.... we enjoy nice, upscale restaurants and this one you get a lot of value for the Price you pay for your meals. My husband had the filet mignon and it may be the best he has ever had!!! I had the mushroom raviolis & they were delicious, definitely a top meal for me! Everyone should definitely try The Edge, you won’t be disappointed!

Perfect Filet Mignon. Perfectly rare. The signature peppercorn gravy was the perfect pairing. The zucchini and yellow squash were fabulous. Mashed potatoes were lovely. The cheese cake is divine. Met one of owners she is lovely, so is general manger. extensive drink menu. Hubby enjoyed an 18 year old Macallan. Definitely a wonderful restaurant. Definitely returning.

We have been to the Edge many times, with no complaints. This time, day before Valentine's Day we were able to reserve a table just an hour in advance, and were seated immediately but waited 5 minutes until our server addressed us. He was very apologetic. We ordered drinks and our dinner, waited 15 minutes for our drinks! Again many apologies, then Braydon our server asked for our dinner order again, there was a glitch in the system! We overheard others being apologized to as well. The Ceasar Salad is always a great starter and proved to be very good once again!
Dinner was excellent as usual, the Short Ribs very tasty and the included side dish of Potato Hash was really good and plentiful! The smoked Half Chicken was very tender, tasty along with the mashed Yucca was delicious! We opted to skip dessert but were surprised with a glass of Bellinis for our inconveniences. We understand once in a while things can get messed up but were treated with the utmost respect and courtesy by all. We look forward to our next visit, typically the service and food are top knotch!

Food was excellent. They are still working out the service it seems. Had to ask for steak knifes to cut that huge NY strip. The butter knife wasn't cutting it. Forgot our veggie side dish. Doesn't seem like they offer full bottles of wine, only half's. Small issues that I'm sure they will work through. The food was pricey but top notch. Ambience was great as well. They did make things right for the missing veggies by offering us free glass of wine or a free dessert. Will definitely be back for another try. It's great to have a nice restaurant local without the 45 min drive to find a place like The Ridge. Reservations are suggested.

The Edge restaurant is a very nice restaurant with excellent ambience. My wife and I went to celebrate an early Valentine Day date.
We started our dinner with appetizers consisting of Crab Cake and Scallops. The scallops melted in my wife’s mouth and the crab cakes were delicious.We both decided to have the NY Strip entree which came with fingerling potatoes and roasted fennel. The steaks were cooked to perfection and were delicious. We ended our dinner with chocolate mousse and NY Cheesecake.
We will definitely be back to the restaurant

My wife had the Caesar salad and the salmon. The Caesar was fantastic and the salmon was cooked perfectly. She substituted the cauliflower purée for the celery purée and she finished everything! My daughter had the NY Strip steak with mashed potatoes and leaks. The leaks were very good and the steak was perfection. I had the spaghetti carbonara with lobster and there was so much lobster that I shared with my wife since it was her birthday. The menu was similar to an ultra upscale restaurant near Wall St. that I had lunch at with clients this week. The dinner prices at The Edge were the same as what I paid for lunch and the food was better. Great Job! We can’t believe this is so close to us and we cannot wait for an excuse to go back!

Starting at the entrance, it is obvious that time and care went into the building and design of this restaurant. It is beautiful and has a functional floor plan. We had a table for four and often have trouble conversing in places like this that have bars. Not at all this time, even though the bar was hopping. The acoustics worked well for us. The servers were attentive and cheerful. Service is slow, but we found it to be relaxing and not rushed. We were all served our meals at the same time and they were all visually appealing. The Short Rib Pappardelle was nice; very good pasta cooked perfectly, tender meat, but the flavor was lacking. The Filet Mignon was generous and nice quality beef but one of our party ordered his Medium Well and it arrived Medium Rare. The Napoleon was excellent, cheesecake and gelato were fine. Cocktails and wine were delicious with a nice selection. We really enjoyed the ambience and surroundings but for the price, we expected a little more from the food. We will definitely give it another try and will be more specific with our requests.

We live in Westlake Community and we knew eventually we would visit The Edge for a special occasion. It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary. When I made the reservation I explained that and was told that we would be toasting with a complimentary glass of champagne. We appreciated the thoughtfulness of that gesture. My wife had the Short Rib for the entree and I had the grilled Pork Chop they were both excellent. I also want to say the grilled Beet Salad was so good. We will definitely go back.
