ASBURY PARK PRESS REVIEW BY ANDREA CLURFELD
**** Outstanding — Highest standards met in its price category.
Raven & the Peach opts for luxury all around, grand scale, full-blast, reach-for-the-moon luxury. Enter its opulent, money-money-money dining room, swashed in the best woods, the best fabrics and the best tabletop appointments, and you're immediately aware you're not sitting down to a potlock supper. Raven & the Peach is striving to achieve complete, utter opulence.
Raven & the Peach is hands-down the most ambitious restaurant to open at the Shore in ages. While it's not every night folks want a spare-no-expense experience, there are times when it's desired and deserved, and for those times, this luxurious restaurant suits as spectacularly as Armani or Chanel. Even with its flaws, it's a soaring gastronomic experience, a place for true culinary pampering.
Review Highlights–Romance, celebrations and entertaining clients all come easy over delightful
New American food at this Fair Haven special-occasion spot sporting a Casablanca-esque ambiance.
Well I went to Raven & the Peach last Saturday on March 18 with a friend and I was very
impressed, the food, service, and decor were amazing. I ordered for appetizer the chicken
spring rolls and for dinner my friend and I had the filet and sirloin. The food was delicious
and the waiter was probably the best I have ever experienced in fine dining service.
An upscale romantic dining experience with ceiling fans, potted plants, much like "Casablanca", in a comfortable, cozy setting. It's custom-made chairs and tables sit at
reasonable intervals for an intimate dining experience.
