I took my wife to M.G. for Valentines's Day celebration. The food was outstanding: Calamari was tender and juicy and the Surf & Turf -- lobster and steak -- was also great. I brought my own wine and the $12 corking fee was reasonable. To complement the evening service was excellent and the music provided by a pianist was enjoyable. Highly recommended.
A relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to dining on the many dishes that are offered at an affordable price. Have eaten here many times and love the baguettes to take home.
The food was excellent as was the service. There was entertainment which was also very good. The wait staff was very attentative.
This is our favorite Northern NJ Italian restaurant. Been here several times before and we will be back often. Food is always excellent. They also change up a "Specials" list every day. Service is there when you want and not bothering you if you don't want. Food, both from the regular menu and the specials menu is alway terrific. Enjoy! Enjoy!! ENJOY!!!!
Food was average. It’s a little too bright in there. Very high prices for the value.
We find this restaurant to be very family friendly and very relaxed.The service is always excellent.We always enjoy the dinners.
Great experience, great food.
Very good experience food was terrific as always. Quite night and no one rushed us thru our dinner.
We sat in the more formal dining area as this was a family dinner. The bar area was too noisy and cold. Very happy with Miguel, our waiter. Manager assisted in getting us seated in the back. Much appreciated. Food was great and unfortunately, upon exiting, there was no more bread left as a “favor”.
Been going to the Mediterranean Grill for years now. Food is very good but very pricey. Wanted to have a soup... soup of the day was cream of cauliflower, sounds delicious but didn’t order because it was $10 for a bowl!?
Really it’s only cauliflower. Some things are priced right and other prices for some plates do not make a sense. Otherwise very nice dinner.
It was my son's birthday and he wanted Italian, so we chose Calandra's Mediterranean Grill. The food is consistently good here. The pasta is homemade and oh so good, as is everything else I've ever eaten here. The servers are polite, helpful and very attentive.
Restaurant was busy that night. There was also a private party. Service was a little slow. Our waiter was distracted as he was upset with another table. Although he was friendly, it did resignate to our service. Overall, dinner was delicious.
Been here few times for lunch. We will be back again.
I was there on a weekday evening. The restaurant was quite empty so the noise level wasn't a factor and there were no issues with service. The food was quite tasty but I thought the minestrone soup had too many potatoes and the pasta dish, which had a garlic and oil sauce, was too heavy with the oil. Overall I thought it was good and would return.
The food and service were exceptional. Add to that a magician who kept the children in our party entertained and you get a perfect evening.
