french and romantic
Looking forward to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We are in our fities and looking for a substantial restaurant in terms of food quality, ambiance and would prefer something french. We will be in the West Milford area and I realize that we likely will need to drive a bit in order to find such a place. I'd like it to be within an hour? I have nothing against this area, but sadly restaurants are far and few between, and yes I love Momentos and warwick, but I need something more special!
For the best french food around, I can't say enough good things about the Chef's Table- the only thing is the ambiance is slightly lacking (it kind of reminds me of a diner with lacey curtains). However, if you are willing to overlook that- I really do think you won't be disappointed with the food and your dining experience.

I would suggest Cafe Matisse in Rutherford. Their tasting menu allows you to try many different dishes and includes dessert. Ask Larry to reserve a table for you in their lovely garden and I assure you you will not be disappointed. The setting is intimate with bubbling water features, stone walkways and formal plantings. While the restaurant is BYOB it has a wine shop in front that provides sampling and has an interesting array of choices. The four course "grazing" menu is $65.00, quite reasonable given the high quality of the offerings.
