Ursino

The name Ursino was inspired by the rich history of the colonial era Liberty Hall Estate (previously called Ursino), located on what is now part of the Kean University campus. The estate boasts a 4.5 acre farm, from which we harvest many of the ingredients used on our menu. Chef Peter Turso and his staff use these ingredients to create a menu that embraces Modern American cuisine. We also support local producers as much as possible; not only in our menu selections, but in our wine, beer and cocktail offerings too.
Our goal is to provide a memorable, quality dining experience for every guest that arrives at our door. With knowledgeable and attentive service, along with expertly prepared food second to none, we aspire to be considered by our guests as one of the top restaurants in New Jersey.

"The food was an eclectic mix of flavors, we tried the duck and steak
The duck was served with a perfect mix of sweet apricot purée with fantastic tart gooseberries on the side complimenting a generous portion of meat.
My wife loved the steak, which was tender.
The ambiance was great, modern with a mix of old architecture and a beautiful garden and fountain out the window.
Wait staff were friendly helpful and inconspicuous until needed.
The hot bread was a yummy surprise, we are every scrap of food and would certainly return. It's a good choice for a special occasion or to get yourself out of the "dog house"

"This is the second time here for dinner. Both times, the food was the reason for coming. Each time, however, the experience was enhanced by the charm and knowledge of the server. The servers know a lot about the food preparation and wine pairings. The ambiance of the setting indoors is quieting and tasteful. It is apparent that a lot of thought goes into the creation of the dishes, the training of the staff and the willingness to please diners. The emphasis is on farm to table and it is evident from
the small touches to the creative design of the meal.

"My friends and I had a great lunch at Ursino after touring the Liberty Hall Museum. The service was helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We almost had to lick the plates because the sauces were outstanding. Sharing some desserts gave us wonderful tastes and the server gave us each a small plate to make it comfortable."

"Food was amazing. Lots of minor issues with the service. You really need to match the staff to the food experience."

"No dissapointments. Ecclectic menu with moderate to small portions for Beginning(s), Main & desert. Selections were thoughtfully varied and the melding of flavors in each dish was exquisite. Everything tasted fresh. The service was friendly and overall extraordinary, ie attentive but not over attentive and conversant with the offerings. The wine list was fine. Yup!! Ursino is on the 'repeat' list."

"Modern take on a falafel which was amazing! I asked the chef where he got the pita for it and he said "back there" and pointed to the kitchen. The unsweetened iced tea is the best I've ever had, brewed perfectly. L Dessert also very good. Great care is taken in the preparation of the food here and it shows. Service was good. I love this place."

"The food was exceptional. The staff of students was a nice surprise, well trained, knowledgeable about the menu and refreshing. The fact that a portion (10%) over the profit goes towards scholorships is a nice bonus.
Con: Desert. I had the lemon sorbet. Delicious, however for the price I would expect more than a single spoonful. All the deserts were wonderful but very very small.
We had an early reservation, which I would recommend as the restaurant got very loud as the night progressed.
I would expect that we will return but skip desert."

"We went for dinner on a Thursday night, the restaurant was fairly quiet, but that meant that we had a very attentive service.
Food overall was excellent from start to end. Not a complain to be had, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The only downside is that it's a bit off the beaten path being in Kean University and therefore not exactly a neighborhood restaurant, no matter where you come from"

"The food was good, but not special. The menu was quite limited. Service was cordial but slow, especially since it was not crowded when we were there. Nothing about the experience would make us want to return."
