    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.

    Outstanding dining experience. The food was so much more than expected. I enjoyed that there were many items on the menu that I've never had or seen anywhere else. It was like nowhere I've been before. We will surely be back. Bravo!

    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

    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.

    This was our first time here and the food was very good. We both had the specials, pumpkin gnocchi and duck confit risotto. The cheese and meat appetizer was excellent. The one cheese was a bit spicy and overpowering so we didn't finish it.

    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!

    Though we sat at the bar all night, we got to try a couple of different beers on tap and bottled-not your garden variety stuff. Food was delicious and again had a fun spin on old time favorites. The cinnamon toast ice cream had to be the most exciting part!

    The challenge on an early Saturday evening seemed to be the kitchen which seemed to stress the servers in addition to the guests who waited a really long time for food that was good not great. So much potential here....really worth paying attention to bring it up a notch to match apparent aspirations. Would return...won't rush.

    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.

    While usually enjoying the food here, we have always hated the noise level, so we decided to try sitting at an outdoor table. There seemed to be only one server, and it took a few tries to get table settings. The table itself was very wobbly and screamo rock was blasting through a poor speaker. The food was mixed. Fried oysters and pork belly appetizers were perfectly prepared. The mussels with coconut milk and chorizo had a delicious sauce, but some of the mussels seemed uncooked while others were fine. The entree of tagliatelle with a lobster sauce was very good. Dessert of peach crostata was served with a stale cookie and an banal crust. Black pepper ice cream was good. The patio took on the feeling of a sports bar right before we left.

    this place is always beyond amazing. we ordered the bison tartare as a starter, the green pea risotto and steak as our main courses, and got the spicy chocolate & early grey tea ice cream for desert, as well as a few cocktails throughout. the bison was the only thing we didn't totally love - the things that were paired it with kind of overpowered the taste of the bison itself. everything else was great. I ordered the "Brinley Crush"cocktail, which was amazing. perfect refreshing summer cocktail. tastes almost like a pina colada, but the lime and vanilla bitters kept it from being super sweet. I have been, and will continue to, recommend this restaurant to anyone who will listen. love.

    I've been to Pig & Prince several times and have had some fantastic meals there. On this occasion I ordered one of the specials - the scallops - and was a little underwhelmed as they tasted slightly oily and a bit too salty. On the other hand, the service was terrific, as usual. Despite my disappointment with the meal, I'll definitely return as I look at this as a rare bad night. Usually the food is perfectly done and tasty.

    I had been to Pig and Prince twice before but for cocktails only. Most restaurants in Montclair are BYOB, so my friends and I have been meeting up at P&P for before dinner drinks. Every time we've gone, we've ended up wondering why we didn't just eat there. I was very glad to finally get the chance this weekend. Everything was delicious! I had the arugula salad and the skate for dinner. The sriracha potatoes were a little too spicy for my taste but still worked well with the pickled vegetables. For dessert I had two scoops of ice cream - pistachio and cinnamon toast crunch. I didn't try any signature cocktails this time around, but all of the ones I tried before were great. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
