Great Choice for a Lovely Evening
In chosing the Mediterranean Grill for a 9 person family get together I had a few challenges especially on a Saturday night.
With the age bracket ranging from 21 to 94....it was not easy finding a cuisine that would be acceptable to all diners.
. However even with the age range of the ages (21-94 years) our guests, the appetizers and main courses were delicous and the desserts outstanding. Although the restaurant was somewhat busy, we were able to converse comfortably and without shouting. Service was excellent and can only strongly recommend the Mediterranean Grill for family functions. Thank you...Calandra's you never fail to please. Kudos to Momir....and the rest of the top notch Wait and Kitchen staff....

Great find - out-of-state customer
I don't live in NJ and had hoped to find a restaurant with a nice outdoor eating area. This was exactly what I was looking for. My friends and I were surprised to find it in a Hampton Inn - the ones near us don't usually have a restaurant. Service was outstanding.

5 star rating
We were sat at a table promptly and given Calandras signature cheese and bread and enjoyed snacking on that while our waiter took our drink order. We ordered a bottle of Calandras wine (which was delicious) but it took a little longer than expected for our waiter to get it to us. We would have enjoyed sipping on it with our oil and bread. Unfortunately, it came out too late. Otherwise, the service was excellent, the food was delicious as is a standard for Calandras Mediterranean and the atmosphere was pleasant. Would recommend it to everyone!

Great food a bit pricey
Prompt service, great food, a bit pricey overall a nice place for date night or special occasion. To expensive for a weekly hangout, the directions should be updated as we believed the resturant was in the best western hotel, turns out it was the Hampton, other than that I would recommend and will return.

Birthday for Mom's 79th
Excellent ambiance, excellent meal, excellent service! Mom and Dad have been here before and wanted to return for this special day. I was apprehensive about a restaurant in a hotel, but pleasantly surprised. A great place to go for wonderful Italian food.

Very good, but way overpriced
We dined here on Friday night 11/29/13 after shopping & going to the movies, as it turns out for the first time in 3 years. We both really enjoyed everything we ordered, as everything is very fresh and full of flavor. However Calandra's prices on everything is what keeps up from coming back more often, and that means all of their restaurants. $14.25 for a Ketel One Martini? That's insane; this is not a New York Steakhouse. I got the Black Angus Steak & Shrimp Special; like I said was very good but definitely overpriced at $34.95. And we had one of Calandra's typical weekend $15 coupons, and our bill with one drink was still $120 with tax & gratuity. I don't know when we will be back again as there are many other cheaper options.

My first visit to Calandra's Mediterranean Grill was indeed a "special occasion." The ambience was festive - yet relaxing. Great food was made even more tasty by the flavoring of Stella's delightful music and song. I'll be back!
