    pig and the prince has it all- excellent food, superior service, great atmosphere. It's especially refreshing to see a confident, talented chef change up the menu every once in a while and outdo himself.

    I took my fiance here for our aniversary and I was not disappointed in the slighest. The portions may be a tad small, but nothing outrageous for what I expect from a high class dining facility. They had a great seleciton of drinks, apps and entrees but the star of the evening was dessert. The donut bread pudding is definitely something to write home about the their homemade ice creams were amazing. I would recommend this to any couple of group that is looking for a nice little place with some amazing food, as long as you don't mind spending a little more money to get it. I will definitely be back in the future for another special occasion.

    The bar scene was very good, with reasonable drink prices during happy hour. Appetizer (we had the pork belly) was amazing. The main courses were the point of divergence. The lobster-pasta dish was flavorful and perfectly cooked, with the duck breast was unevenly cooked and, for a novice, the skin tough. After receiving rave reviews from friends who are foodies, we expected more, so it is a place that we will definitely try again.

    Dined on 10/23/2014
    I asked what the title/name of restaurant meant: Pig stands for the basic burger type food they serve, then the Prince stands for the specials! I ordered white wine and the swordfish special. I forget how the fish was prepared, but the way in which the waiter Dan explained it sounded fabulous to me so I ordered it. Every other time I've tasted my husband's swordfish at other restaurants, it was dry, but THIS SWORDFISH was just delicious! Moist and tasty, but still fishy. Just perfect, I thought. The décor looked like a MUSEUM! More like a Cathedral than a train station. Very high ceilings, so I was surprised at how much noise there was around 8pm. I'd like to go back for lunch & see if a bit more quiet.

  • not as great as it used to be
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    I guess it must have been a bad night for the kitchen. I remember having rabbit ravioli that were out of this world (no longer on menu) now the fried oyster were horrible and were sent back, the salmon was fishy, the beef was gamy, the Brussels sprouts were so spicy and it was limit. On the other hand the pork belly app was delicious, the duck was outstanding and the platter of cured meat was great as well. The waiter was alright, didn't really check on us too much and when he brought us our cappuccinos he forgot to give us sugar and spoons. I have been to this restaurant few times and was always satisfied with my dinning experience. This time around i brought 2 friends along and i don't believe they will be back.

    My artichoke appetizer was very tasty although it was hard to detect any anchovy in the aioli...Our guests shared a pizzette and never got the extra plate they requested. The bread plate they improvised with was removed mid-bite! The pumpkin gnocchi with curry sauce was as bland as it was bizarre. I tasted neither pumpkin nor curry and the wonderful mushrooms were lost. Once again, for dessert, our guest shared and were not given or offered an extra plate. I know the fashion these days is sharing small plates, but we were all of the generation where it was clearly something that should have been on offer. I did enjoy the local cheeses and it is nice to have reasonably priced wines on the list. But I don't think I'll be back again.

    Waiter started out good but disappeared all evening. There were 4 of us and 2 entries came out approx 8 minutes before the others. 2 of the dishes came out cold. We sent both back and when 1 came back it was very chewy and missing the fried onions ontop. At this point we asked the manager over and he was very lack luster. We asked that the dish be re-made. He offered to get us a round of drinks but we already had 2 (1 of which went back because it was made incorrectly). Since we didn't want another drink he didn't offer anything else. The waiter never came by to see how my friends dish was. Nor did the manager The hostes was the only 1 who shoed any interest. We ate here before and had a totally different experience.

  • Something different in Montclair

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    While there is no shortage of good restaurants in Montclair, Pig and Prince definitely stands out. Located in an old railroad station building, it has a distinct architecture and atmospehere. Cathedral ceilings, plenty of air and lots of space allows to accommodate many people without getting crowded. The food is really good. Delicious cured meats are prepared at the restaurant, and they also use local suppliers for other groceries. Something as simple as a burger is a real treat, and the desserts are quite good.

    Was there on a Thursday night, it was not crowded. So noise was not an issue as in some other reviews. Food was disappointing. Just a few examples...Special Poke appetizer had a very unusual slimy mouth feel due to the "marinade" and it was very rich topped with the avocado mousse and lacked overall texture. Mussels were good and the coconut milk with andouille broth was yummy but if you ate them together the andouille overpowered the mussels. We did enjoy the duck appetizer. (Some thought it was too salty.) . But each plate we tried missed the mark. With a little tweaking this would have been a really good meal. Server was nice, pleasant and attentive but not in your face. we liked the look of the place and loved the bar area.

    Found this restaurant on open table and wanted to try it since we were seeing a show on Friday night at the Wellmont Theatre. Very very very noisey. Almost to the point of being annoying. All you hear is this loud roar your entire dinner. Very high ceilings so that doesn't help. We got seated at about 9:30 pm. We literally sat there for 15 minutes before someone even came up to us even though we were sitting literally by the kitchen door and the manager kept popping out to look around. Finally, someone came to take our order. Service was very lacking even though there were 50 million waiters floating around. I find this unacceptable. White bean and arugula salad awesome! Pizzette with bacon so so mushy cheese on top. Food good.

    Be prepared to spend money on your dinner. The food was outstanding and the menu offered many different selections. However you could still get a burger if you wanted. The special was a pumpkin gnocchi that when you took a bite into you could tell the pasta was homemade. The steak on the menu was tender and juicy and the sides especially the sweet potatoes were unique and just enough to fill you. The appetizers and salads again when with the whole theme of the restaurant keep you on your toes a little and to keep surprising you. Overall my family and I enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back again.

    loud. We asked to have the rock and roll turned down and the waiter informed us no as it is part of their atmosphere. Foodie quality food but low attention to service and inability to hear each other in the high ceiling room is a big disconnect.

    Housed in what was once a train terminal, The Pig and Prince has a fun albeit sometimes a little loud ambiance, including a bar that is open on one side to a very high ceilinged restaurant and on the other side to a small and more intimate lounge. The cocktail, beer & wine menus provided ample selections. The bartenders & waiter (Jeremy) were very friendly and helpful. The chef (owner) visited our table after we posed a food allergy question to our waiter. He was very thorough in describing the food we had ordered and provided additional information regarding the restaurant. The food was very good. Loved the Brussel sprouts! They were so yummy that one person from our group ate them for the first time in 30 years & took home the leftovers!

    Food quality is very high but menu is very unusual using many off beat spices and combinations. Much has been made in the press about the owner raising his own pigs, yet there was only one pork entree. I appreciate innovation but there should be a few comfort type offerings. One thing I can recommend are the cured meats and cheeses that make a nice appetizer.

    Appetizers- fried artichokes and bison tartare were delicious. Main courses- cod, tilefish and lobster pasta were outstanding; home-cured meats looked delicious but no red meat eaters at our table so will have to leave it to other reviewers. Desserts-all delectable but the apricot tarte was a standout, and the spicy chocolate ice cream was definitely spicy but worth the jolt. Wine list was so-so. High ceilings and dark wood of the former train station were a nice change from the usual restaurant spaces in Montclair. Lackawanna Plaza location is in a not-upscale shopping mall, but at least there is parking.
