Restaurateurs Francis Schott and Mark Pascal operate two of New Jersey's most storied restaurants. Stage Left Steak -- celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017 -- is famous for its wood-grilled steaks, award-winning wine list and pioneering cocktail progr
The Stage Left has the makings of a good restaurant...old feel when you walk in, a nice bar and attentive staff. The appetizers were good but the steaks and seafood we ordered way off a quality steakhouse. The filet and strip were both under seasoned. Ordered medium they were served medium rare. The salmon was bland, the pickled vegetable puree it was served with was good. To make matters worse the wine list is comprised of wines that are from "small vineyards" which means you can't select the wine because you haven't experienced them. You pay a high price for wine and take a big risk. Our meal was $50 per person, without including alcohol. We eat at many high quality steak houses and that price would be acceptable...but not hear. Many other better places to go!Hey I'm sorry you didn't care for our place. Our wine list is from small producers because we think they make much better wine and represent much better value and are much more interesting than big name 'brands.' We've got over 800 wines on our list with 50 under $40 and almost 100 under $50. I understand completely wanting to see familiar names, and if you want the same wines you can get anywhere else, we're not the right choice. But 20 years of Wine Spectator 'Best of Award of Excellence' certificates is a testament to the quality of the delicious and interesting selections we offer.

Came here on a Friday night, and it was nearly empty. Should have been a clue. Waitress was pleasant and there seemed to be some wait staff in training following her around. They don't have a liquor license so she suggested we go to the liquor store a few doors down to get something. I ordered the arugula salad, which was a large portion. My husband had the Caprese salad. He said tomatoes had no flavor and it wasn't served with basil. I was several bites into my salad, when I found a really long hair in it. Lost my appetite. My husband had a sausage and pepper pasta special, which he said was good. I had penne vodka. Much of my penne was stuck together in clumps of 2,3 or 4. Sauce didn't taste fresh. Overall pretty substandard meal. I would have rated it a 1, but my husband thought his pasta was decent. We won't return!

Evelyn's is one of the few MidEast restaurants that still make meat-filled Grape Leaves. Most only have vegan variants, but authentic stuffed Grape Leaves have meat! (They also have vegan ones [yuck]).The Shawarma was awesome, and homemade. Their babaganoush is also authentically smoky (it's supposed to be grilled eggplant, which gives it a nice smoky flavor), which also makes them somewhat unique. So many Mideast restaurants don't make it properly.I highly suggest a visit to Evelyn's - they've been there for many years (I remember going there when I went to Rutger's in the 1980's!), so you know that if they've made it this long, they must be good!
