This review is beating a dead horse as this restaurant has been closed for years. Except for the fact that it leaves a deserted building in the center of Bernardsville, it's no loss. The prices were exceptional, but the food was not. Service was absolutely...More

Terrible service, food was ok and over priced. Will not return to this place for dinner or any other meal when it reopens. It is currently closed.

A group of us (10) went there Sunday for Brunch. I couldn't believe how slow the service was. It took them a good 20 minutes to give us the menu, I had to ask for them. Ordering the food took forever, we had a couple...More

Equus is a local restaurant and we were so pleased to see the quality of the extensive renovation completed a few years ago that brought lovely character to the old building and our town center. Sadly, our pleasure ends there. We've been to the restaurant...More
