  • Creative Food

    "Amazing is an understatement! The foods are different and creative, most times things I would never think go together, however get adventurous and try EVERYTHING! There's nothing I've ever tried here that I could say wasn't worth it." — Mike V. / East Hanover

  • Weddings - 5 Star

    "My wedding was there. John was awsome. All my guests loved the food and the atmosphere.
    We had a cocktail party with about 100 guests. So we had the entire upstairs. It was a great time with great food and had been decorated for fall which was my theme. I would highly recommend Cinders to anyone !!" — Julie H.M.

  • Best Tapas

    "Best tapas in NY or NJ. Great food!" — Roy V.

  • Romantic and Delicious

    "Cinders is a very romantic place with delicious food. The upstairs looks excellent and the downstairs area is nice. We ordered the Avocado sushi roll and it was delicious. I never would have thought using the avocado itself as the roll and tucking all the sushi and other ingredients inside then flash frying the entire thing." — Clint M. / Trenton

  • "Our New Favorite Local Restaurant"

    "Excellent meal! My husband had the bison burger and truffle fries, I had the wood grilled chicken salad. It was by far the best salad I have ever had. I was impressed that they had gluten-free and vegetarian selections. Service was impeccable. This is our new favorite local restaurant."— Bonnie F. / Denville

  • "Unexpectedly Excellent"

    "Despite having lived in the area for many years this was our first time dining at Cinders! It was fabulous! Great atmosphere, great service and great food! The coconut Brie appetizer was so delicious, my husband enjoyed Sushi carpaccio both as appetizers. We then moved onto dessert. What unusual and creative dessert options! Service was efficient and polished! Overall highly recommend Cinders... will definitely return!" — Christine D. / Ledgewood

  • Best Breakfast Brunch

    "WOW! Came here for brunch this morning and it was the BEST breakfast I can ever remember having in NJ. We ordered too much food, but that's never a bad thing :) The stuffed french toast and lemon ricotta pancakes were AMAZING! I also ordered a veg frittata that I couldn't even touch because I was so full. Comes with pastry basket to start and we also ordered bacon egg and cheese sliders. Prices were very good. I'm mad all these years of going out to breakfast I never knew to come here lol." — Katie F. / Rockaway

  • Wonderful Meals

    "Had a couple of wonderful meals here while in NJ. Great wine list, burgers, and (amazing)
    Belgium shoestring fries. Super, super friendly staff." — Nate / Vermont

  • "Very Good and Very Varied Food"

    "Been here a few times now and will give a solid recommendation. The food is very good, and very varied. Great tapas apps to share... the rest of the food from their steaks to seafood is excellent as well. Never a complaint from anyone. Service has always been excellent. You could tell there is a big push for excellence and training. You have to appreciate that." — Mark P. / Oak Ridge
