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

...we probably would never have found this restaurant. We met friends in Montclair and decided to find a nice restaurant to chat. Parking was difficult in the main restaurant area, so we parked a few blocks away...right in front of Mediterranea. We checked out their menu and found it to be uniquely different and thought we would give it a... More

I tasted the Mediterranean sampler, filet mignon & chicken kebob. The sampler was delicious and filling! The meats were ok nothing amazing, but the basmati rice was awesome!!! I would definitely go back to try other items on the menu and the hookah ! BYOB ;)

My wife and I went with some friends of ours and for the most part, enjoyed it. We were given the option of sitting outdoors in the courtyard, but the day we went it was a bit muggy out, so we decided on indoors.The ambiance was pretty nice, good mix of music, had some nice middle-eastern inlaid wood tables and...
