NJ Restaurant Reviews



Bogey's - I've been meaning to stop in at Bogey's in Whippany to see if it's as good as I remembered it to be.  As I often say consistency is critical in the restaurant business, and it's obvious Bogey's knows this and practices it.  Bogey's  is located in a converted house along Route 10, and walking in I arrived in the back room... there is a bar in the front room.
The place is totally cool and very laid back with menus under glass on each table.  The room is small, tables a little cramped, but surprisingly it does add to its charm.  The service is as good as the food which is very good and quite reasonable.  I really liked this place and my Philly-style cheese steak sandwich was made with real steak and cooked to perfection.  The fries were good and my guest raved about the cheeseburger which I remembered well from years ago. 
The only thing I was disappointed with on this day was that it wasn't dinner as my eye caught quite a few interesting items.  I will be back for sure and it will be at dinnertime! - Jersey Shadow -

Sebastian's Steakhouse - Sebastian's Steakhouse in Morristown caught my eye on a recent August afternoon.  The facade of this very nice looking building appears reminiscent of an old New York-style steakhouse.  I found Sebastian's to be  very comfortable and relaxed.  All signs indicated that a memorable meal was just minutes away.
I began my lunch with a mixed field greens salad with (as they call it) "EVOO" or extra virgin olive oil.  The oil was very tasty and high grade, but I didn't find much in the way of mixed field greens unless you count some romaine and bibb lettuce which was all I saw and tasted.  The shaved cheese on top helped a little but not much... so I looked toward my entree... the classic Gorgonzola cheeseburger.
Well, at ten dollars one would expect something better than okay, but it was only okay at best.  The fries were good and helped the just-okay burger along. My guest ordered the marinated grilled jumbo shrimp served over greens which similarly was mediocre.  Walking into a place like this definitely lifts one's expectations, as it should, and perhaps if I arrived on another day my experience would have been different.  The service and ambiance were outstanding. I just wished the food was right there to match it.  It's not a good situation for a restaurant to have consistency issues, but they can be fixed.  First impressions are often lasting ones and at a place like this they are critical when servicing the high dollar patron. - Jersey Shadow -
