Happened to be in the area and needed a place to eat and picked this restaurant based on the open table reviews. It was a good decision, as everything was delicious. Highly recommend.

Very good menu and food! Service was just fine too!

Only 2 criticisms are;
Quite expensive compared to other similar quality Montclair restaurants and VERY noisy, poor acoustics!

We dined on a Thursday night. The bar area was busy and noisy, raising the level throughout the dining room where only 5 tables were occupied. The food, service and drinks were all excellent. I can’t imagine the noise level on the weekends.

My husband and I were there to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent, they had a special of king crab legs which are my favorite. The service was also top notch and I felt real special when our waiter brought out our desserts with a candle in each. My chocolate mousse was decadent!! I really love this restaurant and think it is a great place for a special dinner.

It was a Friday night and the bar was very loud, which clashed with our desire for a romantic anniversary dinner. Nonetheless, always a lovely time with delicious food and excellent service.

The food here is always outstanding!!
Petite Plate tacos (filet mignon) were incredible!!
Crab cakes and duck special for entrees - both fabulous.
A bit sad that they took the beef carpacio appetizer off the menu but we've been here twice and both times the food has been superb.

Very loud music, inattentive service, lackluster food, slightly offset by energetic bar scene with well made cocktails.

Food was excellent. No denying it.
Appetizers:
beef carpaccio = OUTSTANDING
CRab cake = excellent
One of our entrees was a special and we were “specially” surprised to find out it was $55.
That seemed a bit excessive for a filet of sole.
Very loud but doable because it was only the two of us.
Overall, a good experience!

Every plate beautifully displayed, fresh and hot. The high price accounts for the professional service and great ambiance. Go you'll love it.

I have been there three times I have never been disappointed with any dish that I’ve received, the drinks are amazing. I would definitely recommend this and I have to my friends as well as I have done a YouTube video on the restaurant as well as advertise them on Instagram
