They are dedicated to making the dining experience as good as it can get and they largely succeed. Especially in this outdoor dining era. Just very enjoyable.

Environment is nice- food is lacking. But good place to have drinks and snacks and enjoy the outdoors. Just not a gastronomic experience.

The restaurant adapted well to the outdoor dining requirements due to the pandemic. Cute tent and atmosphere. It felt safe and sanitary. The food was great. The drinks were a little small for the price, but overall great experience.

I really enjoyed my experience here. They have a short and simple menu with options for everyone, whether they like seafood or not. The service was great and they adjusted very well to the restrictions due to the coronavirus. Food was delicious as well! Will definitely return

For the first time eating after stay at home order, I was really impressed on how the tables were separated from one another to keep distance from other people. The food was amazing and would come back. However, there was a point in time that our waitress was rushing to get the bill and gave us to go containers since there was a possible rain storm. We initially didn’t get to order dessert, but after the rain had passed the wait staff was a little confused if we were able to get dessert. Overall good experience

Food was really good but the place was too noisy and we almost could not talk each other with my wife. We had to leave because of that.

I took my wife to Montclair to get away from the city which halcyon was great because atmosphere was vibrant so we felt young being out and quality of food was top of the line. Overall you can take this place and plug in NYC and put them in top category with other great restaurants. As well, what makes great food is the people who serve it they were fabulous.
We will be back

The food was so bad and really expensive. He hates both our meals and we are pretty easy going. The duck was inedible and the fish had no flavor. Shame.

Our waiter Pete was polite and gave great recommendations. My crab cocktail was fresh and there was a good amount on the plate. I had a lamb chop appetizer special for me entree and they were cooked perfectly. I ordered the fig bread pudding for dessert. It was a small portion but tasted delicious. And finally my cocktail was dynamite! I’ll define going back 😉

Third time in tried the brunch with my parents their Crab Cocktail appetizer was consistently good my Grilled Oysters on a 3rd try ( 1st two times exceptional) this time totally overcooked and dry disappointing but the main dish of Eggs Benedict exceptional and great!! Parmesan truffle fries are always amazing! Our waitress that we had for a third time was a little off her game but we will be back for sure great restaurant, fresh, creative, tasty experience!

Met someone from out of town at this half way point and wasn't disappointed. Place was quiet because it was a Tuesday night. Service was pleasant and patient with us as we chatted and didn't order right away. Fig and prosciutto appetizer was lovely and perfect for sharing.
Truffle and mushroom risotto, crab cake, sole special were all nicely plated, served at the correct temperature and very tasty. The crab cake is large and full of crab, very little filler. The sole has a lovely buerre blanc sauce. The truffle taste was not too strong in the risotto and the texture was perfect.
We shared the flour-less chocolate cake for dessert. all in all, this was a lovely dinner.
