Consistently good.

Let's put the hookahs and the belly dancers aside and talk about the food and the layout. They have great outdoor seating, but know that sitting inside is nice as well. We went there with a large group and had a great time, not only with its outdoor seating, but sharing the food as well. There... read more

I thought the food was good but nothing overly special. I didn't have a problem with the food but it didn't make me say "wow". May or may not return

This hookah lounge/restaurant is amazing. From the minute you walk in to the minute you walk out the staff wait on you and make sure your needs are met. The hookah flavor a taste delicious and the food was really good. This one of those locations where you go with a group of friends on Friday night or on a... More

Rude staff, mediocre food, bad vibes, poor experience. Do not spend your time or money at this restaurant. They do not deserve it.

We took my sister and her husband here late on a Sunday afternoon after a performance. It was not a usual mealtime, so there were very few people there, but our meal and the service we got were excellent. I love the decor and the ethnic music they have playing; it gives you a feel of being in an exotic... More

I've only eaten here once and the staff forgot to put our table's order in. They were having issues with other customers using Groupon and complained a little to me and my friend - which I thought was kind of tacky, even though I'm not a fan of Groupon either. We told them we were leaving after our appetizer and... More

I often go to monclair and found myself in this place b/c the other places is very busy and there is no place. Usually the meat is not frish...but the place and the environment is pretty good. Try to stay in the backyard if tge wether is nice.

Mediterranea is my favorite restaurant in Montclair. We sit at the inlaid table by the window and watch the world go by. Friendly staff, large portions, incredibly tasty food. Even those not too familiar with this type of food, you will not go away unhappy. I dream of their Shrimp Tartous. Sometimes the owner comes out to say HI. Sometimes... More
