Lake restaurant? romantic? Near Wanaque, Pequannock, or Ringwood?

Hello everyone. Hope you are staying warm.

I saw an ad, website, or something. I really don't remember. It was for a restaurant, perhaps on or near a lake, and/or with a lake-view. Might have been a bit romantic. I think it was in or near Wanaque, Pequannock, or Ringwood. Maybe somewhere near that area.

I know it's a long-shot, but does this ring a bell with anyone? I've done a bunch of google searches and can't seem to find it. Maybe it was another town, but I don't think it was far from these areas.

Thank you very much in advance.

  1. I remember this review in The Record of a place on Greenwood Lake. It's the first thing that popped in my head while reading your description.

      Double Ai (Wayne) offers ok Asian food (Chinese/Japanese). Latitude 41 (West Milford) has a young adventurous chef and worth a visit. Farther up Greenwood Lake is Emerald Point which might fit the romantic bill better: http://www.emeraldpnt.com/

    2. Not right on the water but near the Wanaque Resevoir is Berta's Chateau in Wanaque.

      1. Gencarelli's is on Lake Drve West in Packanack Lake in Wayne. http://restaurantpassion.com/listing.... Maybe that's the one you are thinking of? I think there is also one near the Pompton Dam just off Hamburg Turnpike on 202. I'll search.

          Double Ai is the one I have passed a few times. They have beautiful outdoor lakefront seating, too. The Yelp reviews are favorable. Gencarelli's has never been described as "romantic", but it's reliable and lakefront. http://www.yelp.com/biz/double-ai-wayne

            It's not Double Ai...I know that place. Never been, but I know a few people who have. Don't know much about it. Thanks.
