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

We go to Montclair often and have eaten at many fine restaurants in the area but this is one of the best. Portions are large and the service is attentive and accommodating. Our salads were fresh with delicious dressings. The bronzino could not have been better and the only problem was trying to finish it - the opposite of most... More

Used a restaurant.com coupon and were not impressed. We were seated quickly, but waited a very long time for the server to come and take our drink orders and even longer for our food to come out of the kitchen. Our food was mediocre. I don't think we will return.

Took a chance on this place. We wanted to try something different and I found a groupon, $35 for dinner for 2. Food was delicious. I wasn't used to this type of food, but the waiter was very helpful and explained a lot of the menu to us. We got their sampler appetizer which was delicious, and had a lot... More
