birthday dinner for 19 year old and 5 friends in bergen county

yes, it will be on a Saturday night - two weeks from yesterday. She was thinking about going to the Drive-In in Warkwick, since none of them have been to a Drive In. I probably should just look at restaurants around there....but we have to wait to see what movies will be playing and that will influence whether or not they go to the Drive-In - there are a bunch of variables involved - it needs to be a rther loose plan

Yes, I know it is her choice. I guess I wasn't clear - she is also worried that two of them are driving 3 1/2 hours to get here and she doesn't want to have to wait to get seated, knowing that with a larger group, sometimes the wait can be an hour. the girls are staying over night and would like to go out to dinner and then a movie, so she is concerned with timing. She did not mention where they would be going for dinner, because she hasn't decided yet.

Recommendations for Restaurant in Oakland NJ Area

I would choose Timbers over the Valley Stables - Valley Stables is like a non-chain Friday's

Doesn't matter that much. We are in Franklin Lakes. She wants to go to Cheesecake Factory, but they don't accept reservations and I don't want the stress of waiting for a table for 6-8 people. She just likes that it offers a variety of food because her friends all have different tastes. I was hoping to find something with a bit more ambience, or unique - not a chain - doesn't necessessarily have to be fancy, just something a bit different, if that makes sense.

Never been to Wayne Steakhouse - River Palm is very expensive - $100 could cover one person if he wanted an appy and drink - all sides are extra. Picnic is very good - small place, the menu changes daily, Chef's Table doesn't have a website - but you can see the reviews on Trip Advisor, and Zagats

Cafe L'Amore is a nice BYOB Italian restaurant located in Oakland. It doesn;t look like much from the outside, but it has delicous food

My daughter has invited her friends from college to celebrate her birthday. Since they are coming from Maryland and Pa, I did not want to make them drive that far for dinner.

Any recommendations for an interesting place to go to dinner in Bergen or maybe Passaic County?

Thanks,

birthday dinner for six 17 year old girls

My daughter wants to celebrate her birthday at the Cheesecake factory in Hackensack tomorrow night. I don't want to risk having to wait around 1- 2 hours for a table for 9 people.

Any suggestions? One girl is highly allergic to nuts and and shell food, which is why we are not going hibachi or sushi. One friend had her birthday at the Melting Pot and the other at a Tea Room.

I was hoping to find something with a little ambiance....not that the Cheesecake Factory offers any.

Thanks,

Cheryl

Where to go for a teen girl's 17th birthday with 8 of her friends?

My daughter would like to celebrate her birthday at a restaurant with 8 of her friends. She enjoys all types of food. I am interested more in the ambiance. One of her friends celebrated at The Melting Pot and another at a Tea House. So we were looking for something a little different or unique. We live in Bergen County.

Thanks,

Cheryl
