“Cell phone use by staff during working hours!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Pleasant bar but they ran out of draft beer (no back up) and one of the staff spent more time on her cell phone than attending to customers. The other one spent more time complaining about being the only one serving while the bartender seemed to be in her own little world (clueless).

“Newark Airport Restaurant - What a surprise”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

How nice to find a good restaurant in an airport. Le Comptoir was very pleasant and the food very good. The service was slow so don't go there if you're in a rush.

“Slow service at an airport?”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

I have been here on several occasions. The food is ok and the wine list somewhat extensive. What puzzles me about this place is the slow service and the staffs' nonchalant attitude. The atmosphere of the bar is quite nice for being in an airport.

“Pleasant airport stop!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Stopped here for some wine and snacks before our flight and really enjoyed it. We had the camembert plus the blue cheese nachos (which were out of this world!!!) and everything was good. It was good but its expensive so a bit of a treat for an airport stop.

“The best dining option at Newark-Liberty”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Le Grand Comptoir, though not necessarily true to its French name as far as the menu and wine selection are concerned, is still the best 'fine-dining' option at Newark Airport. The choices, for both food and wine, but especially for food, are more numerous, and the prices are more affordable than their only competitor, Vino Volo. We would particularly recommend their Tenderloin Sliders ($16). The Paris-themed interior is relaxing and pleasing. The service is good and attentive, that is for an airport, of course.
If your intention is to get some resemblance of quality food at Newark-Liberty, look no further. Le Grand Comptoir is the place to sit back and enjoy your food or wine or a combination thereof.
