Met a friend for lunch . Just had a salad, but was treated like I ordered a 5 course meal. Sat in air conditioning on a muggy day, by a window. They also have 2 dining rooms.

I don't know why I had never been to this restaurant although it has been around for some time. However, it was the only place I could find a last minute reservation in Montclair. Free parking across the street is a good start. The staff...More

The smoked salmon appy was delicious, as was the duck breast, tender and done to perfection. BYOB a plus. Quiet, nice ambiance and wonderful service! Can't wait to return.
