Went with a group of 10. (You need to make a reservation fort group this size as there are only 1 or 2 options to place tables together for this size group. Service was prompt and very pleasant. Food pricing is reasonable and there is a nice variety (though it seems not as much as there used to be). During the entrée service, the waiter spills a dish on someone's clothing but the manager made good by comping that dish to help defray the cleaning costs. The food was very good and service was fine, but at one point when we wanted to get more water, we had to search around for a waiter.

Greek Inspired Mediterranean Cuisine in a Modern and Warm Environment.
Was at Lithos in January 2018 for a business meeting. There was ample off-street parking. The dinner was in a room in the basement, so parking by the back door preferred. There were several meal choices (picture) of which I picked mousaka (picture). The baklava (picture) was nicely presented and tasty. The (men's) bathroom was pleasant.
Of negatives, the hostess was abrupt and a bit rude. The wifi required sign-on to Facebook. The "coke" tasted like RC. The prices are a bit expensive for what is obtained.

Tonight four of us went to an area Italian restaurant for the first time in many years and were happily pleased by the food and service and disappointed by the noise volume throughout the venue.
Panevino Ristorante has been located on Rt 10 in Livingston for maybe 20 years and has been known for excellent food. We were not left wanting for delicious taste.
Two of us had the Tagliolini with shrimp, spinach and a great, tangy red sauce that was light, hearty and plentiful for the dish. It had a wonderful flavor and a perfect portion size. One had the chicken special that was baked to perfection, juicy and tasty. The last entree was the eggplant parmigiana - also well received. All of the dishes were clean and sauce soaked up with excellent bread.
The dessert portion of the meal was equally delicious. We shared marscapone (sp)cheesecake - flaky crust, delicious filling. Two has a dark chocolate Bonet with fresh whip cream - a winner.
We had a wonderful meal, delicious and tasty food at a decent table (even being close to the waiter’s table and restrooms). The service from Josip was flawless.
However, the restaurant suffers from a fateful flaw. The rooms are excessively noisy. I’m unclear what the specifics are for the unpleasant volume, but I think that the low ceilings and hard-surface walls contribute to the din. The artwork on the walls are friendly and inviting, but there is nothing in the restaurant to lower the conversation level all around us. I had walked around the busy rooms on this Thursday evening and noted the common levels throughout.
Happily, we had a fine dinner and good time at Panevino. We all agreed that we would return to the restaurant again for the food and service. Hopefully the management will do something to make the dining environment more pleasurable.

Went down to a Dr's visit in Livingston and asked for a recommendation on a Jewish Deli. The nurse didn't hesitate and gave me directions. It is without question the best Hot Pastrami sandwich I have had since Kartzman's Deli and Bakery in Newark/Irvington closed years ago. I ordered Pastrami, rye bread, mustard separately since I had an hours drive home. The Pastrami was wrapped tightly in doll and we had HOT Pastrami when I reach d home. Potato salad excellent as well as chopped liver, pickles and halavah.

The fish served at the Ritz is comparable to that served in the finest restaurants. The hamburger very slightly exceeds the best that Burger King has to offer??????

When you desire truly Home-Made "everything", one visits Nana's Deli plus much more. A neighborhood gem for many years, still making his Mom's secret Tunafish recipe for sandwiches. For the Jewish Holidays, this is unbeatable. The Brisket and Chicken Soup are amazing. Their Garlic Italian Bread is like no ones and you can order it in bulk for a party. Dr. Browns' Sodas and lunch area as well.

Nero's Grille is a family restaurant that serves traditional American cuisine. I had some good soft shell crabs over pasta. My wife had some nice fish and the kids had chicken strips. All were good, but nothing imaginative. The restaurant was very helpful and careful in regards to my son's peanut allergy, which was much appreciated. I liked this place, but it was a bit expensive for a standard traditional meal.

Let me start by saying this is a very casual counter service restaurant with cafeteria style service and tables. This is not a sit down waiter service restaurant. It is a Kosher restaurant as well, which means it is closed on Saturday.
Jerusalem Restaurant has consistently been excellent for as long as I have been going there (over 20 years). If you are interested in Mediterranean style food, they have it all. Chumus, babaganoosh, every type of salad you could think of. What I love about the place are their dinner plates, that allow you to choose any three items behind the counter. Food is clearly prepared fresh, and every day the variety switches up just enough to keep you interested week after week to return. I would say I eat here at least once a week, sometimes more.
For those of you interested in Pizza, they have very unusual vegetarian pizzas, for example, Pepperoni, Sausage and onion, Taco pie, Baked ziti pie, stuffed crust, and many more.
There is also a fish selection each day and always a small sushi bar, producing decent sushi on the smaller side. (I would not come here for the sushi, but it certainly is not bad, its just not a sushi restaurant).
Favorite Dishes: Jerusalem plate (5 different Mediterranean salads and falafel balls and a couple of pita breads), enough to share. I am also a huge fan of the teriyaki salmon.

Went to Marra's for dinner last Saturday evening. It's a good thing that we had a reservation. This restaurant is small and it gets crowded!! The room is pretty. The service is thoughtful and cheerful. The food was very good. I recommend the chopped salad and pizza for starters. Both were exceptionally good. I had whole wheat penne pasta with shrimp in a flavorful red sauce. My husband had chicken Marvin which he thoroughly enjoyed. For dessert, we each had a tasty cappuccino and a tartufo. My only critique is the noise level but it will not stop me from going back......
