The hotel has a very nice ambiance and curb appeal, would make a great location for a cocktail reception. We ate at the bar and lounge area both times, once on regular menu and another time at the happy hour menu. Food is good, however a little inconsistent. Our mussels bread came out char, which I feel the kitchen team... More

Came here for business and sat at the bar as it was getting late and I just flew back into Newark Airport and needed a dinner ASAP before all the restaurants in the area closed. The Korean bartender was very nice and said I should try the Grilled Wagyu Sirloin, Just Another IPA for beverage and for dessert I had... More

I had read the reviews before going, but wanted to ignore them, as I was excited to finally eat here after many years of living in the area. We went to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. We went over the Labor Day weekend, so it was easy to get a table, and the restaurant redesign is very cool: nice showboxes... More

Who would've thought that such a fantastic place was in the middle of Kean University? The whole vibe of the restaurant makes you feel as if you were dining at a Michelin starred restaurant. The visuals of the place are superb, the food is well crafted and the wine list is good, although it could use some fine tuning. The... More

We have been to Ursino twice and will not return for a third visit. The first visit was good. A little pricey, but overall the goodies good and the location interesting. The second visit was just disappointing. The food is still good. But the service was not. The place doesn't have its act together. Twice they came to us with... More

I feel terrible writing an average review as our meal ended up being free. However, the four of us dining were so disappointed I feel it is important to share our experience. My wife was very excited to dine here after reading about Ursino reopening in a recent NJ magazine. We made reservations via OpenTable. We were surprised to receive... More

They reopened under new ownership and we ate there recently. For those of you that have been at the old Ursino restaurant, the bar area is still the same decor, but the bartender seemed like he could care less if he was there or not, no special drinks like they used to have. We had a drink and I asked... More

After being closed for some months, Ursino's has reopened as Enoteco Ursino. Veal meatballs appetizer were excellent. Salmon was very bland, but half roasted chicken was quite good. Lemon tart was a nice finishing touch. Service was excellent, very attentive. There could be few more choices for entrees.

Fresh food in a warm environment. Farm to table; with bright and well prepared food. The salmon I had was the most perfectly cooked salmon I had eaten in years!

The name Ursino was inspired by the rich history of the colonial era Liberty Hall Estate (previously called Ursino), located on what is now part of the Kean University campus. The estate boasts a 4.5 acre farm, from which we harvest many of the ingredients used on our menu. Chef Peter Turso and his staff use these ingredients to create a menu that embraces Modern American cuisine. We also support local producers as much as possible; not only in our menu selections, but in our wine, beer and cocktail offerings too. Our goal is to provide a memorable, quality dining experience for every guest that arrives at our door. With knowledgeable and attentive service, along with expertly prepared food second to none, we aspire to be considered by our guests as one of the top restaurants in New Jersey.
