Diner Reviews
  • "We are relocationg to NJ from MD and thought we would try the Montville Inn. It offers beautiful ambience. The service was excellent. While it was a bruch the staff was attentive. The omlet chef was pleasant. The brunch selections were abundant and would suit various palets. There were various salads with unique tastes. The desserts were delicious. If you want a cocktail just make sure you visit closer to noon. We would recommend and will definately re-visit!!"

  • "At first nothing popped out as I've had menu items elsewhere, we ordered the sausage and long hot appetizer. Wow! It was delicious - highly reccomend. I decided to have the roasted chicken and my boyfriend ordered the skirt steak. Everything was great!"

  • "My fiance and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary with a nice dinner out to the Montville Inn. We've always wanted to go since we pass it frequently on our way home. The food was fantastic and they had a great drink menu to accompany our dishes. We enjoyed sitting outside and sipping on our Strawberry Sangrias. Definitely recommend the Montville Inn to someone who is looking for a nice ambiance and great food!"

  • "Good seating for 6 adults indoors at a round table. Grouper was over cooked and tough. All other entrees were great. Service was excellent by wait staff and busboys. Could have a larger wine list - variety. Sunday evening parking was easy. Easy to reach off I-287 and Rte 202."

  • "The food was good but not great, the restaurant was very noisy which made it tough to have a conversation without shouting left us with a negative feeling about the place. Instead of 'energetic' we'd describe it as hectic and at times a bit chaotic. The Caesar salad was excellent, the beet salad had three thin slices of beets and far too much greens, couldn't find the other ingredients as stated in the menu; veal parm was good, short ribs a bit dry and the connoli filling had little flavor."

  • "Sat on patio which was a pleasant surprise to be available though not crowded at all (attribute that to a summer evening). It turned out to be rather noisy as cars came up the hill on 202. The service from a waiter/busboy standpoint was excellent but they must have been sleeping in the kitchen considering it was not busy. No bread, etc. was brought to the table and it took forever for our appetizers to come out and then dinner too. Calamari Saltiti big disappointment (sauce delicious but calamari not cooked enough; they did take it off the bill). I had Sea Bass-generous portion but not that flavorful. Short Ribs and 2 other chicken dishes very good. All in all, it was a good meal but not sure I would rush back immediately."

  • "It's right off the highway and the food is always good. The brioche buns they use for the sandwiches and burgers are not good...too dense...they need to change it. I've been there a few times...chicken is great, fish is great, pasta is great. Definitely worth checking out."

  • "Went there for our anniversary dinner. Waiter leaves drink menu, takes drink order 10 mins later - disappears. Drinks are on the bar and it took another 7 minutes to get them. So we're seated 20 minutes before we get a drink. This is how the whole evening went. Waiter disappeared all night. We were never offered fresh pepper or grated cheese for a pasta dish. This from a restaurant that refers to green beans as "haricot verts". Had to go up to bar to get wines for our dinner (bartender comps them). Manager comes, comps us a dessert and 2 glasses of champagne. Can't find waiter to get check. Check comes, I'm charged for champagne we did not order. Can't find waiter, manager, bartender. Tired of complaining. Pay check and leave."

  • "waiter was very inattentive and we felt ignored despite few people in the restaurant my chicken was overcooked and the presentation of the dish was very unappealing those who are the fish dishes were more satisfied "

  • "This was a special occasion and a large group. The waitress was terrible with attitude and poor service. Brought us the wrong food, mixed drinks without all ingredients and had an attitude when asked to return the drink. Steak was raw and full of fat, not medium rare, returned it and got it back way over done. Wrong appetizers were brought and had to wait a long time for the correct ones. It was terribly noisy and because of our location on the porch we were out of sight out of mind. My guests were disappointed after I raved about what I thought would be a great overall place to celebrate our special occasion. So so disappointed"

  • "Since moving out of the area, it's been about 6 months since our last visit. The food and service was excellent as usual. Soft Shell Crabs were amazing. The manager and the wait staff were gracious and accommodating as always. We will not let another 6 months go by before our next visit."

  • "I have been going to Montville Inn for the past 4 years. I love the food and the service. It's a great place for a family/ business or a romantic dinner for two. I like that the restaurant has two menus, one more classic/ tavern style and the other a more formal dinner menu. The food is fresh and delicious. The wine list is excellent. Would visit again."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Server was very friendly but not attentive. Our simple requests for "No Lime or No onions" were ignored. We were never ask if we wanted drinks, only water. We finally got her attention and later had to ask a different server for refills. The food was....average at best. The Beef Carpaccio was presented with a HUGH pile of arugula which camouflaged the very small portion of beef. 3 of 4 entrees ordered were not very good. One cold, the other very salty, steak very tough. Burger Special was good, except the egg on top was overcooked."

  • "We came at lunch hour during the week and for most of our visit, we were the only customers. Service was fine except it did take a while to get our food. I understand the food is cooked to order, but two at our table had salads. Other than that, food was great and we had a lovely lunch"

The staff did a great job. Food is Amazing..great selection for all kinds of tastes. The pasta was great and the steak melted in your month.. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK"

  • "Had not been to Montville Inn since purchased. Given special menu right away.We ordered Sprout salad for 3 then server came back and asked how many ordered the sprout salad which was strange question. Said 3 and he said they were already out of it. At 6:30pm? I asked why did you ask how many people ordered it and I said then bring us how ever many orders of it you have left. Female server (don't remember her name) came back and said they were all out. In general, food was okay. Caesar Salad was bland and entree's were just OK. Waited long time and no one came back,finally asked for check. Server came back and I said I guess we're not having dessert. She asked didn't anyone come over and ask us if we wanted dessert,. I said no. That was it."

  • "My husband and family have eaten here often as it is local and has lots of history. The food is very good and we especially enjoy their Sunday Brunch which always has a great selection of food choices. The quality and freshness of what is served is excellent and well presented although the area it is served in is slightly small and can get very crowded on Sunday. Their omelets and waffles are great! On a nice day try to sit on their beautiful porch and take time to go inside and enjoy looking at the old pictures on the wall which show the history of Montville and the O'Dowd dairy farm. My husband grew up in the Towaco area and still enjoys looking at those old pictures which bring back memories."

  • "Excellent brunch items--everything was delicious. The different salad items were unique, super fresh, and seasonal. Nothing tastes old or dry like brunch can sometimes get with the chafing dishes. Delicious!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We had our family brunch here. The service was good and the choice of food for brunch was great. I would recommend the salads and desserts. The only food that was not delicious was the carving station. The meat was a little bland. Overall, we had a nice brunch."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food exceeded my expectations... definitley try the pork loin with apple cider reduction and grilled shrimp with soy, white wine sauce and garlic! Our waitress was a doll and didn't miss a beat... my only complaint would be the wait... we made reservation, were asked to wait about 15/20 minutes..so had a drink at the bar...then told we'd have to wait yet another 25 minutes ...so we ate in the bar area. Noise level is very high. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Great brunch! Plenty of vegetarian options. Nice $2.00 mimosas and Bloody Mary. Best omelette we ever had! Service a bit sketchy. Took awhile to get any coffee or drinks after being seated. However there was a party going on so that may be why. Buffet offered enough options without being overwhelming. Can't wait to try for dinner!"

  • "We were highly disappointed in this restaurant. First my husbands food came out completely wrong. This was after waiting an hour after our appetizers. Then they promised it out in 2 minutes. It was gluten free pasta so clearly his dish was just given the leftover pasta. It was very small. They ten added extra clams which were very fishy & gross"

  • "After numerous dinners at Lunellos in Cedar Grove (formerly in Totowa) I was expecting great things. I can't say I was disappointed however, it is much more casual and understated. I suppose that is the intent so it has achieved its goal. The atmosphere was casual and the food was good. The service was good, not refined but good. They serve pizza and have a separate bar menu but I would not consider it a pizza joint. It has the flavor of a country Inn and a limited but comprehensive menu. I believe they are attempting to cater to a wide group of dinners and from what I can tell it does just that. I will go back to sample more items from their menu before I pass judgment from our one experience."

  • "The food is excellent, I will give it the 5 stars it deserves for that. Otherwise, I felt very pressured by our waitress to hurry up and order followed by the hurry up to eat/order dessert/pay. The place wasn't packed by any means so i'm not sure what her rush was as it didn't seem to us she had many other tables. At one point the water server spilled my water all over me and another waitress came along and made a joke that we caused an accident. It wasn't even anyone at my table that did that, so I felt like that wasn't a funny joke. I came here with friends for an enjoyable evening but it felt more like we were being watched."

  • "We were there on a Saturday at 5:30 - the place filled up very quickly, all with big groups, it seems. If you want to go as a couple to enjoy a meal together, go someplace else, unless you don't want to hear what your partner was saying. The food was pretty good though they were out of veal (at 5:30 pm on a Saturday??) and I had to change my order. I far prefer their other location in Cedar Grove/Little Falls. Would not go back."
