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:

    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. 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.

            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.
