Orchard Park Terrace

Excerpt from Best of New Jersey.

Dining out is always a special occasion. But there’s something extra special about going to a restaurant and dining outdoors. Whether it’s a stunning waterfront view, a gorgeous skyline backdrop, or a garden of greenery, outdoor dining is excellent. That’s why Best of NJ is celebrating the eateries that offer The Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in New Jersey.

Below, you’ll find top-rated restaurants throughout NJ that offer al fresco dining. Between the signature cocktails, chef’s menu specials, and indulgent homemade desserts, there’s something for everyone on this statewide list. Keep in mind, it’s a good idea to call ahead for outdoor dining; this is because outdoor seating can have limited hours or be weather dependent.

Son Cubano

Where40-4 Riverwalk Place, West New York
Details: Son Cubano strives to provide excellent service in a glamorous atmosphere. It’s a unique way to enjoy the food, sights, and sounds of the Cuban lifestyle. Dine on fine cuisine that fuses Cuban, American, and Asian fare while taking in beautiful NYC views. In particular, Son Cubano’s expansive patio offers stunning looks out over the Hudson River and across the New York Skyline. Patrons love their signature “Ropa Nueva” as well as their Paella and Lobster “Reyes” dishes. However, please note the “Smart Casual” dress code before arriving.
Why I Like it: Even the multiple, indoor dining rooms are lovely, so there’s no bad place to sit.
