In term of Haitian restaurant and food, this is a classy little place in Montclair. The manager is Haitian and as Montclair, the clientele is mixed. Set up near Walnut station and in a very quiet and nice neighborhood, parking is not a problem. The owner/manager ever present is extremely welcoming and friendly. One of the great benefit of Montclair... More

I'm very surprised to see the high rating for this restaurant. Please let me set something straight. First of all, this restaurant is very expensive. We spent close to $100 for two people with no drinks and the tip. The food was not that good. The best thing on the menu was the Creole, but that was served in a... More

We found the staff as pleasant and as composed as possible but they can't serve what hasn't been promptly prepared. Sadly, the staff was also not prepared to accurately describe the food. The food when it finally arrived was delicious but really overpriced. The selection was vast - there is certainly something for everyone, including vegetarians. Thankfully we got our... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Montclair to enjoy while chauffeuring our son to and from a middle school dance, located Saveur Creole on Trip Advisor and decided to try it. The service, atmosphere and food- with the exception of dessert- were terrific. There is an small area decorated with flowering plants to sit outside and the inside is... More

I took my husband for his birthday to this restaurant, and he loved it. The food is rich in flavor and very spicy. Everything was delicious from the soup, salad, appretizers and the main course. We could not eat dessert because it just was too much. The ambriance was very artcy and intimate. The staff were great and very helpful... More

This food is a road trip of sheer culinary delight. I am as frugal as they come, but every once and a while I must treat myself to this fine dining experience. I promise you by the time the meal is done you will want to just lick the plates. Not one morsel of food will be safe from your... More

While the food at this storefront restaurant is fairly good by suburban standards, we have never felt more unwelcome or unimportant throughout an entire meal. The coldness by the wait staff was enough to make sure we will not be back. When I inquired about certain dishes during ordering, there was no feedback. It was an inconvenience. After we had...

My wife and I were looking for a place to host my mother-in-law's retirement dinner. I sampled several French Creole restaurants throughout NJ, and this is by far my favorite. I find myself comparing French Creole food to how my mother and grandmother cook, which to me is never a contest, although other restaurants have come close. However, Saveur Creole... More

What's with this place? We made reservations for 9:30pm and wasn't seated until 10pm. That's the best part.., we did not get our menus until 11pm...someone came around and verbally took the orders. Five mins. later, a dish appeared on our table which we never ordered. We did not question as we were famished by then... It could have been... More
