Airy, clean and wonderfully furnished. The most important thing to me though is the food. Quality and chief's ability to combine different spices created a pleasurable experience for my taste buds. Though pricy, you get what you pay for. Will return.

We went here for Valentines Day. Our food was very good. Excellent Brussel Sprouts. I had the Strawberry Sea Bass it was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and a nice guy. No price fixe for V day that was great. We have been here for dinner before and it’s always such a nice inviting place.

Cute place tucked away in Montclair, away from the bustle of Bloomfield Avenue. Solid menu and drinks. Get the grilled lobster and the orange upside down cake with the lavender gelato! Fantastic!

The grilled Maine lobster and oven roasted branzino was delicious. They both had the write amount of seasoning. The drinks were a good balance of strong and savory.

The grilled oysters with olive oil and parmasean cheese were amazing. My cod was perfectly cooked and mouth watering at every bite and my partner really enjoyed his salmon dish. This place is a great local gem.

We took our son to dinner at Halcyon. We were looking for a seafood restaurant on a Monday night. The restaurant has great ambiance and had a great jazz trio. Food was good. Restaurant was a bit loud.

Nice neighborhood spot, food was okay, filet mignon was over cooked, sea scallops were fresh and cooked well as was the grilled octopus. Service was okay. Overall a very clean, well maintained facility, nice bar area and lounge, the table area is small and tight and the noise level is very high, not a place for a quiet dinner and conversation.

Drinks were good. Food was amazing!!!!!
I think they need more dessert options without hazelnuts (I’m allergic) so I skipped dessert that night.

The food was well prepared and fresh, but we left feeling sort of gouged after ordering a couple oysters and two drinks each--definitely just need to be prepared to spend a lot of money if you are going to order drinks and apps or dessert in addition to your meal.

This place is very overpriced-$15 for a glass wine and most entrees are around $30. And my dish was tiny. I was still hungry when we left. Not worth the money.

The seafood is always fresh. The service always a cut above. Whenever I'm in Montclair, I make it a point to have dinner here. Halcyon really is my favorite Montclair place!

The jazz - especially on Monday night - is a very nice touch. I liked it!
