We were in town for a 50th class reunion and dined here on our own one night then returned the next night for a lovely cocktail party. The venue is stunning and opulent. The food was sensational. The service was exceptional. We dined with a small group of five and every person raved about their meals being delicious. Hubby and... More

As soon as we pulled up the Valet parking team greeted us with a lot of enthusiasm that really set the tone for the night! When we walked in we were so impressed by the beautiful holiday decor. As we sat down we got a window view of all NYC it was breathtaking. The best part was the food, my... More

We attended a renewal of wedding vows event here. The fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline we expected; what we were not expecting was the superb quality of the service, food, and the wines. We ate in the main dining room the first night with a group of about nine; there was even a piano player performing old jazz and... More

The food is fantastic and the service is impeccable. The view just makes this place beyond perfect! Really amazing view of NYC. It's nice to walk around and see the memorial outside too. Just a fun fact... The hawk is pointed directly at ground zero.

From the moment you walk through the large doors, the atmosphere is beautiful. The flowers, to the pianist at the bar, to the stunning views of Manhattan in the main dining room- you can't beat it for NJ.

The Highlawn Pavilion sit on a hill in the Esgle Rock reservation. It or an elegant, fine dining restaurant. Jackets are required for men. It has a commanding view of the entire NYC skyline that twinkles in the night. The food is 5 stars. We had the striped bass that was light and perfectly prepared and a sirloin steak that... More

Arrived at 6:30 pm for a 7:00 pm dinner reservation wanting to enjoy a drink at the bar before dinner. You enter through the Eagle Rock Reservation and pass the 911 Memorial on the way in. A truly wonderful setting with a great view of NYC! The bar was crowded but the early arrival yielded a great view of the... More
