This romantic BYOB restaurant is inside an elegantly restored barn serving upscale Continental cuisine & desserts. Saddle River Inn is owned by chef Jamie Knott. The food is out of this world! The restaurant is located by a gorgeous lake, where we always take a stroll after the dinner. Very romantic!

Son Cubano in Weehawken, Cuban

If you’re up for a more lively date night, then Son Cubano is the place to go! Sit by the window with floor-to-ceiling views of New York City, enjoy the amazing Cuban food, live music and dance the night away!

Orama in Edgewater, Mediterranean

Orama is literally located in the middle of the Hudson. I am in love with the interior design of this place – the amount of details, the contemporary furniture pieces, the bar counter, and of course the Manhattan views are mind-blowing! I would say this Mediterranean restaurant is one of Bergen County’s hidden gems. Not too crowded usually and great food!

Chart House in Weehawken, Seafood

Located right on the Hudson River and directly across from Manhattan, Chart House offers gorgeous panoramic views of the glittering New York skyline – from the Empire State Building to Wall Street. An unforgettable seafood restaurant, Chart House thrills diners not only with its views and million dollar remodel, but also its unique cuisine, from seafood specialties like Mac Nut Mahi to classics like slow-roasted Prime Rib. A great spot to view the 4th of July fireworks as well!

Bottagra in Hawthorne, Italian

Bottagra is a hip, high-end Italian restaurant set in a Revolutionary-era house with a full bar & large wine list. The food is phenomenal, the service is spectacular, the ambiance is extremely romantic. 

The River Palm Terrace in Edgewater, Steakhouse

One of NJ’s prime steakhouses, The River Palm Terrace is perfect for a meat-lover or fish lover. In my opinion, they have the best sushi in Bergen County and the service is impeccable. After the dinner, drive down to West New York and take a stroll by the Hudson river and enjoy the view of the gorgeous Manhattan skyline.

14 & Hudson in Piermont, NY, New American

Not quite in Bergen County, but 10 minutes drive north and this is one of my most favorite restaurants! 14 & Hudson is a relaxed, sophisticated bistro with a patio for locally sourced New American fare & craft cocktails. Their food is so delicious, you’ll keep coming back! This place also has a venue for private events and the owner designs the most sophisticated parties.
