Parents 40th anniversary, please rec a restaurant in Red Bank area for Sat night?

We want to take my parents to dinner on Saturday night to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Need to stay in the Red Bank area (or anywhere within a 15-20 minute drive). Nicholas is booked (of course) and Dish doesn't take reservations on Sat nights. There will be 6 of us and price is not an issue. Any ideas? Thanks!

            Tapas - I think the OP discounted Dish because it didn't take reservations on Saturday. I would normally agree with you on the recommendation, but getting 6 people in that size restaurant on a Saturday night would be very difficult.
            JMS - The OP was looking for Red Bank area. Otherwise AMA would be a good recommendation.

              Belford Bistro (your rec) and Ama are equidistant from Red Bank. Either way, I figured Id toss the option in there.

                JMS - Although it looks to be a mile or two farther away (per google maps), I stand corrected. I thought it was a lot farther away. My apologies.

                I stand corrected bgut1...sorry my mistake.....maybe they can try Dish at another time.
                All of the suggestions are very good also. What ever they choose i hope they have a wonderful time and report back to us..

            2. Bay Avenue Trattoria in Highlands. Better call now for the reservation. BYOB.
