From the staff to the food it was great. The staff was very courteous and helpful all very professional. We had a party of 10 people and there was no problems with the order or service. The food arrived hot and cooked the way it was ordered. For a place so busy it was very clean and organized. The owner... More

Not the best place to visit if you're in a rush or looking for a quick bite. The food is definitely worth the wait, great atmosphere, and decent service. And it's B.Y.O.B like most places in Montclair. Their fruit sangrias are a must!

Was so excited to try this place and it was such a horrible experience. Sad to say but the owner is rude and disrespectful to customers. He does not care about having your business. We were told the wait was 30min. After the 30 min time and we were still standing on the crowded staircase because there is no real... More

We went on a Friday night arriving at 7 and we're told the wait was an hour. We said that was fine as my girlfriend had been once before for lunch and raved about the food. We went for a quick walk and grabbed coffee and tea across the street so stay warm and help pass the time. Around 740... More

Should have known we were not going to have a good experience at this restaurant when we walked in and the HOST was yelling in the ear of a patron to "GET OUT, we don't need your business". Apparently she wanted a table for 7 people (NO RESERVATIONS can be made) I'm not sure what the issue was but there's... More
