STAY AWAY. This restaurant used to be very good - svc, food, atmosphere. All that is left now is the atmosphere. Greed has taken over at this restaurant: mgt allows walk-in's ahead of those with reservations (like ourselves) and then you have to wait for AN HOUR to get just your appetizers!! Unacceptable. This happened once 6 months ago; gave them a pass; but had the same results last night (Dec. 1st 2012.) Owner had to be called over twice to take our order and when he finally arrived was dis-interested without eye contact telling us the evenings special. Was more concerned with his 2 parties of 12 - whom BTW were all STILL waiting for their main entrees as well when we got up and left. And they were ALL seated way before us. In addition, food runner twice brought food over to our table meant for others. Young wait staff was also inexperienced and disorganized and could hardly command the English language. In conclusion - waiting an hour for a simple mozzarella/tomato salad is unacceptable and tells you the poor staff, kitchen organization and front-end that this establishment has become. You can do better elsewhere in neighboring Wayne, Pequannock, etc. NOT WORTH IT OR THE WAIT.

I am a bit shocked to see comments regarding their portions about this hot spot. They are known for their big portions.
Anyhow, been dinning at 202 for years now they are so consistent that we keep coming back for more. Very creative food, excellent atmosphere and excellent service. Their calamari And branzino are the best.

Great BYOB with excellent food.
Great selections, great service.
I only have two negative comments: Portions could be a little more generous and be sure to check the total on your bill.
It is hand written and added. More that once we have found errors in their favor.

I was not thrilled with this restaurant. The food was pricey and I thought the portions could have been bigger. The selection was good and the service was decent.

Call ahead and check what days they have their specials; great deal for around $20. Not had any trouble getting in; food was good and quiet atmosphere; bigger room in back for parties.I think they had a liquor license but check first; dont remember BYOB.

This is my favorite place to go in the area when I want a fine meal. Most of the food on the menu is fantastic, but the specials are usually the best. It's BYOB, low-key, and a generally nice atmosphere to dine.
