Our Dining Rooms

After entering our grand foyer, guests will pass the open “exhibition” kitchen and can look on as our culinary staff prepare each meal with care. To your right you will find our Bar & Piano Room. Continuing ahead, is our main dining room where you will be greeted by our maitre d’ who will escort you to your table and attend to your every need.

Our guest can choose from a diversity of dining options for parties both large or intimate. A refined dining experience can be enjoyed in our Main Dining Room, while the Piano Room, Bar, and Outdoor Patio all provide a slightly more relaxed environment. Our Pavilion Room and Wine Cellar are both available for private dining.

Main Dining Room

Magnificent views of the New York City skyline ranging from the Verrazanno to the George Washington bridges, along with a bird’s eye view of the Township of Montclair and beyond, are afforded by large windows lining the east wall of our main dining room. This spacious dining room is defined by the classic consecutive Florentine arches original to its 1909 construction. Gracious old-world service, fine linen, copper and silver accoutrements are all part of the aesthetic of our dining room.

Bar & Piano Room

A higher-caliber option for a night out for drinks, the lively bar offers something for every connoisseur, including a diverse array of international beers as well as an ever-expanding selection of micro-brews, and extensive wine-by-the-glass program, creative specialty cocktails, and an elaborate single malt scotch collection. An inventive bar menu offers elevated comfort cuisine with rich flavors and textures to pair with your cocktails.

The Piano Room is a slightly more casual room featuring an oak bar, live entertainment and easy access to our outdoor patio. Learn more »

Please note: The Bar is currently unavailable for seating during our limited Covid-19 opening. The adjoining Piano Room is available for guest seating.

Outdoor Patio

Our patio is the perfect choice when the weather cooperates. With unparalleled views of the New York City skyline and the surrounding park of Eagle Rock Reservation, there’s no better place to enjoy lunch…or dinner under the stars. With its European design, floral landscaping and gently bubbling fountain,  the comfortable setting is truly reminiscent of open-air continental relaxation and an al fresco dining experience that’s hard to match elsewhere.

Wine Cellar

Our Wine Cellar, tucked away in the depths of our landmark building, constructed into the massive basalt rock that makes up the mountain upon which Highlawn Pavilion stands, is the perfect choice for those seeking a truly unique dining experience in the most private of settings. With all the ambiance you’d expect from a traditional wine cellar, this room features a “Royal Table” that seats up to sixteen guests for private dinners, and many more for cocktail receptions or multi-table seating. An intriguingly unique feature, the “Cellar in the Cilff’s” eastern wall is comprised of the genuine “Eagle Rock” upon which Highlawn Pavilion was built.

The Pavilion Room

The Pavilion Room offers our grandest bird’s-eye views of the striking Manhattan skyline and looks out over all of the surrounding towns below. As guests enter from our elevator or pass our massive ornate bronze and crystal chandelier as they ascend the grand staircase, the reveal of The Pavilion Room–with the skyline in the distance–makes for an unforgettable first impression.

With the room’s table layout specifically set across the span of the eastern exposure, sweeping panoramic views of New York City can be seen from every table through the room’s oversized windows. Every guest is ensured a good seat. As night sets and the skyline begins to sparkle, the view acts as yet another part of the décor, creating a sophisticated and impressive ambiance–the backdrop for your unmistakably unique private event.
