Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is definitely a stunner, the inside alone is worth the trip but food is also great."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The waiter was very nice. The dessert was good. The wine was good. The appetizer elote was terrible. The steak was chewy flavorless and oy. The sweet potatoes were to salty. The fingerling potatoes were greasy. I would've rather eaten at Wendy's then here and I hate fast food."

  • "Went to brunch on a Sunday and had a great time. Cool eclectic menu. The grilled cheese is outstanding. Bloody mary was nice and spicy, but not much liquor was in it. The decor is really cool as well. Def going back soon."

  • "We arrived at 6:30 and we were seated promptly. We then ordered small plates as starters, entrees, and sides. When the starters arrived there was a portion difference between several of the same dishes. The half portion of risotto served in a saucer...for the price I expected more.The cauliflower salad which was 3 or 4 pieces of cauliflower nicely dressed and presented...but $13.00! Our entrees came a short time later. The full order ($21.00) was served on a dinner plate! Come on put it in a bowl at least so it can be eaten on the bowl not the table. The chicken Kiev came burned on the bottom and the chicken was overcooked. One positive was the server who was knowledgeable. I don't think the Pig is on the menu for future dining."

  • "The atmosphere is cool as it is located in an old train station. Both the bar menu and the regular menu are so interesting, sophisticated and different. We enjoyed our cocktails and food immensely. It is pricey but the food is worth it. It was fun to be adventurous with our food choices."

  • "Pig and Prince is a great spot for brunch. Living in Montclair, there are plenty of options for brunch. P&P is my new favorite. Everything was excellent. Prices are reasonable. And there was no waiting outside on the sidewalk like that other very good brunch spot on Bloomfield Ave."

  • "I was really surprised by our experience because I had heard great things and had been looking forward to our first time at the restaurant. I ordered the short rib and it contained no meat - it was completely a chunk of fat. The rest of the meal was unremarkable. There were 4 of us dining, and all found it mediocre. Desserts which can usually not go wrong - were flat and unsatisfying. I brought guests from out of town and thought this would become our destination for a night out - but it really was so uninspiring that I don't imagine we'll be back. I might recommend for drinks to enjoy the dramatic space, but not for food. I hope this feedback is helpful and that the restaurant can reach its potential. Good luck."

  • "Went here for dinner and was very excited. Love the ambience and drinks but food was okay Appetizers were better than dinner. Would go back again for drinks."

  • "We really liked it and had a good time ,good service. Our waiter had good recos. The scene is fairly hip for NJ, so that alone made me like it. Had a really nice bar area love to come back and try that.And of course easy parking, which also makes it a top choice."

  • "My wife and I have been here a few times over the past 2-3 years. While it has been consistently good, the quality of the food and service took a big step up during our last visit. My wife started with the Tempura Frog Legs, then the Duck as her entree. I had a half order of the Sausage Risotto to start, followed by the Pork Tenderloin. Everything was fantastic! Their desserts have gotten MUCH better over the past few months. We're told they have a new pastry chef, which would explain the much needed improvement. Finally, for the first time we would say the service was excellent. Yesterday was our best experience at this restaurant, by far. We will likely include Pig and Prince more often in our rotation of date night restaurants."

  • "We had a great meal and plan to return. The menu is quite interesting and varied, yet not too exotic."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "the food was very good and many items were very different . things like lamb tartar with strawberries-- portons were a good size. a lot of thought and imagination was put into the menu. not to many martini specials- actually non at all- but i am sure they could have made anything- except they didnt have peach schnapps. we had ordered a side dish of a vegetable- the wrong one came out . we sent it baack and got the rite one as we finished dinner- manager comped us on that. whise decision on his part. they have many gluten free items on the menu- but they do not serve gf bread"

  • "The description of all the food on the menu, including the ingredients, is truly mouthwatering but the actual food is a big letdown, especially considering the prices. Great beer selection, tasty cocktails, though. If you're just looking for a few drinks this is a great place but I wouldn't come back for the food, personally."

  • "We went to Pig and Prince on a Saturday evening. The service was wonderful despite it being a busy night. The food was excellent as it has been the previous times I have eaten there. The rabbit ravioli was different, but delicious. We also enjoyed the quinoa salad and the best dessert- donut bread pudding with Cinnamon Toast ice cream. Excellent food with a hip vibe. Highly recommended."

  • "The restaurant is in a restored railroad waiting room with high arched ceilings. The space is wonderful. The food is very good (not wonderful). The service was prompt and attentive until the place filled up and then the staff seemed overwhelmed. I would definitely try it again and hope that the kinks are ironed out."

  • "This is a very fun place. I could see the bar scene here really developing. Food was good quality I just wish they had a few vegetarian choices to add. Nice wine list with nice choices by the glass."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed a delicious range of food of more unusual taste treats including duck creme brulee was to die for, and bison tartar which could have used a bit more seasoning but was very good. I loved my roast skate with roasted and pickled vegetables and the duck fat roasted brussel sprouts and the sunchoke tots were wonderful. I would go back just for those. Desserts were a little disappointing but I would try again."

  • "Upon my first visit, the Pig and Prince quickly became my favorite restaurant in the northern New Jersey area, and I suggest it as a destination whenever the opportunity arises. The chef uses amazing ingredients in new and interesting ways, and I appreciate that the menu is changed each season to show off great new combinations. The cocktail selection is equally unique and delicious. That staff is always highly attentive without making you feel like they are hovering, and empty plates never stay on the table for long, even on busy holidays like Valentine's Day when the dining room is packed full. Try the Duck Duck Goose appetizer if you want something decadent and different."

  • "Packed restaurant, fairly loud ambiance but still able to hear the person across the table with large cathedral like ceilings to make the room more lively. Although it was busy, service was still excellent, waiter very attentive, and kitchen churning out food nicely. Almost as fast as a Chinese restaurant but I digress. I come from NYC restaurants with fairly new and different foods and feel that this restaurant is quite a gem. Prices reasonable, quality and quantity is just right. It seems like a flair of French American more so American cuisine. Overall Montclair has top rated restaurants and would definitely come here again with my date."

  • "They overbooked the restaurant and we were seated very late to our reservation. Otherwise a great time."

  • "We went here on a Wednesday night for an early dinner. It was pretty quiet. The ambience was spectacular and the interior trendy, but comfortable. They have a great selection of wine and beer, as well as specialty cocktails. They also serve regular water and sparkling water. The service was great. The server that helped us out was super knowledgeable and was able to make suggestions about our food and drink. We got three appetizers: bison tartar, smoked salami (prepared in house), and a chicken liver-foie gras mousse. For the man course, we had duck breast and a pan seared skate. Dessert was the burnt brown sugar ice cream and the cinnamon toast crunch ice cream. All the food was amazing. Overall, a great first time experience."

  • "This was my first try at the restaurant and my impression was the inside was interesting but the food was not worth the price."

  • "Went to the P & P for the first time....The food, drink and atmosphere were so great, I went back the next night! The wait staff was very friendly, eager to please, and attentive."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We tend to gravitate back to the pig and the prince. There are still too many dishes to taste. On our most recent visit, the Atlantic Cod and the Chicken entree were outstanding. Dessert was fabulous as usual. A little pricey for Montclair NJ, but worth it."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "This was not our first time, but regardless... Its a new experience each time. The food is exceptional, nice presentation as well. We suggest this place for foodies and anyone who would like to try something new and exciting! Bravo to the chef!!!"

  • "As first timers, we had previously heard portions were small, but honestly, they were appropriate and we were satisfied, i think people sometimes expect to have leftovers. As far as meals, i had the chicken and it was cooked perfectly and delicious. The herbed spaeztle paired well with it. We had the mussels for an appetizer and they were good, but they werent at the same level as Egan's mussels. I was little underwhelmed by my boyfriend's pasta special, but he loved it. The menu is small and a bit exotic, so i recommend reviewing it before going just to make sure there is something on it for you. We definitely plan on going back to sample other items like rabbit ravioli. One thing we noticed is that the crowd picks up later in the night."

  • "Pig and Prince had a great menu. The variety of types of food was very much enjoyed. It has an extensive beer menu as well. The only downside was the service. It was a Sunday night, and the place was not crowded, so it didn't make sense that the service took so long refilling water, drinks, and checking in after the food was brought out."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "This place provides the type of meal we would generally travel into the city to get. The selections were great and the offering of wild boar, which I haven't had cooked well since my last visit to Florence, is great. The pork cheeks were delicious, but could have been a little more tender. Overall. Everyone really liked it and I have been happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal. The space is noisy b/c of the nature of the building. I liked it because the conversations of nearby tables was not the dominant background."

  • "My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary. The only downfall of the whole night was waiting 15 minutes for our waiter/waitress to come over and talk to us. Beer list has some great craft beers and the wine list looked pretty great as well - a little for everyone. The food came out hot and at the perfect time. The food was delicious - well cooked and amazing. My boyfriend got the pork tenderloin with the most airy, light and creamy mashed sweet potatoes we have ever had. I had the short rib and pumkin mac, I kept eating them because they tasted so good way after I was full. The in-home ice cream was so good - I definitely recommend it. Overall, a great night and a great place for a special occasion."

  • "We went here after we saw many good reviews. Unfortunately, the food was just average. After incorporating the price, the place is well below average. A few highlights: 1) The waiter informed us of the appetizer specials after we already received our appetizer 2) When someone in our group requested a change for a side with a dish, the waiter informed us they don't substitute sides. The reason is because it keeps the balance of the taste. That was a gem. 3) The portions are quite small and don't align well to the price they charge per item. Luckily, there are many other restaurants in the area."

  • "The Pig and Prince is housed in an old railroad waiting area. The ceilings are very high and have large supporting beams. Decor is high energy cool. Great date night place and large enough for big groups. Very innovative, smart menu. The muscles in coconut curry sauce is the single best muscle dishes I have ever tasted. If you order it, DO NOT eat any bread before it arrives. You will regret any bread not dipped in the curry sauce! The rest of meal was great and clever. Had steak with lotus root coated with semolina and a small type of pepper served as the main vegetable. Never had that type of pepper before, and never had peppers served in that style."

  • "This is a beautiful restaurant in an old train station. It has a New York City vibe in New Jersey. A definite welcome addition to the Montclair dining scene. I had the sausage risotto which was excellent. My guests had the mushroom risotto and fish special which were also very good. I had fish during my prior visit and it was delicious. My only complaint is that happy hour should be extended until 7pm. Currently it is only until 6pm-entirely too early for people with 8-5 jobs!"

  • "This is where we go when we don't bring the kids. Deliberately innovative food (wild boar chops? pate with bourbon-and-pear jello? bacon sacher torte?) that actually tastes wonderful, gorgeous building, exceptionally friendly staff and a wine, beer and bourbon list that's entertaining all on its own."

  • "Lovely decor and upbeat atmosphere. The menu is somewhat limited to unusual food combinations and the portions are small. No choices available in vegetable accompiment selections which are not for you if you don't love Brussels sprouts."
