Haddonfield BYOB Holiday Dinner suggestions

jlynch1127 Nov 4, 2008 03:00 PM

I am looking for a nice place for our annual ladies Holiday dinner in Haddonfield, NJ. I have in mind: Little Tuna, Javier, Melange Cafe', Tre Familigia and Via Giula. Has anyone visited these places recently and have any suggestions? We are a small group of 5. Thanks.

    Probably not a lot of help to you, but for what it's worth, I can speak for Melange which I find to have great food and service. I know others who have been at some of the others you mention and I've heard mixed reviews. Does it have to be Haddonfield? Collingswood has some great dining options, too.

      Yes, my group would like to go to Haddonfield for the dinner this year although I know that there are some good options in Collingswood. I have heard good things about Melange also. I just don't want to end up somewhere that perhaps is not currently living up to it's reputation!! Thanks.....

        Melange is good. A friend went to Javier this summer and thought it was terrible, but with a nice atmosphere. I would suggest Sapori in Collingswood. Very nice restaurant, with an excellent lunch menu. Nothing else in Haddonfield is worth going out of your way for.

      Tre Famiglia is really good! DH and I have eaten there several times in the last year or two, even sent our parents there without us (they finally met 2 days before our wedding) and they loved it. Most of the time, we end up ordering the day's specials, which are creative and tasty, but I suggest asking prices as we were a bit surprised by a $12 gnocchi appetizer.
      An added bonus: as it's not in the "main" part of Haddonfield, parking is a bit easier.
