We went for Sunday brunch and the food was wonderful. It was a quiet day so the noise level was low. I would definitely go back.
I choose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The reviews said it was a quiet, romantic spot and good for a date. It was St. Patrick's Day, so it was none of the above. But food was good, a bit pricey.
Food was fresh, tasty and plentiful, but everything was served lukewarm. We had uniquely prepared mussels, cod, salmon and swordfish. When leaving, I mentioned this problem to the hostess so that she could alert the chef. I received a shrug of her shoulders. The overall service was minimal and inattentive. Too bad !!
Halcyon is just lovely inside. The decor adds to a fine dining atmosphere. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Oysters were well chilled (so important!) and Paella, Branzino and Scallops entrees were all delicious . We will definitely be back!!
Only complaint was 3 appetizers came out and had to wait for the 4th. Should’ve come out together
Great ambiance and good food, but be prepared for city prices, minus the quality service. The staff was very friendly, but I don’t think the level of service was on par with most higher end restaurants.
Halcyon Brasserie has it all. A lovely atmosphere, great drinks, marvelous service and most importantly, fabulous food. It's not a large menu, but well varied with nice sized portions. The crab cakes, mussels, paella and fish tacos were fabulous! We can't wait to go back!
Absolutely amazing service and the food was outstanding. Had to change resv last minute and they accommodated us with a smile. Oyster oyster oysters. Place was one of the greatest dining experiences I had in a while
very disappointing. first the good--good drinks and octopus appy. Bad-bland swordfish, very average skatefish, dishwater coffee!
They no longer offer their "simply grilled" menu, which I was extremely disappointed about... and they wouldn't modify their menu accordingly. My only complaint.
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.
Wonderful Valentine's dinner. Second visit and impressed again. Great selection of fresh seafood and affordable wines. Thoroughly enjoyed the New Bedford Scallops. Solidly on the date night list for good.
Fantastic from entering thru the meal and exiting .
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.
Pecan crusted cod was oustanding! Excellent service; attentive, but not intrusive. Excellent wine list and creative cocktails.
Food was awesome.
Server was very attentive
Kitchen was slow.
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.
Grilled octopus was tough. Should have been beaten more prior to cooking. Portions are small and measured. Good to try once and move on. $9 for pomme frites? Come on
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.
We enjoyed the food but had a 8PM reservation and were not seated till 8:40PM.
Atmosphere and decir is great, raw bar is fantastic but pricey. Salad portion was tiny and fried calamary were over fried and placed on the he top of french fries that I didn't order. I very single dish was spicy.
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.
Halcyon remains our favorite Montclair restaurant
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.
The ambiance and food is very good. The plates are presented artistically which matches the ambiance and e enhances the overall experience. Will definitely go back again.
This restaurant does not disappoint. A dependable, delicious dinner! Enjoy!
A+++ Delicious food and professional service! Thank you for a lovely evening!
Most excellent, had guests for dinner everyone had an amazing meal.
Food and ambience here are exceptional. Portions are a bit small for the price. On the pricey side, but worth the cost if it's a special occasion.
My date and I were galking about how much we enjoyed the food for days after. Everything was cooked to perfevtion and we received the best servuce experience ever.
I've been to this restaurant probably 7 or more times, and not once have I ever been disappointed with the food.
Give it a try, you will make it one of your favorite.
amazing food ! we especially go for the shrimp and filet mignon tacos and oysters! But everything we ever get is great!
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.
Great seafood spot! Both the grilled and raw oysters were delicious. Wanted to try everything on the menu so definitely lots of return visits. A little pricey but worth it since the ingredients were top quality.
A delight. Seafood was awesome. A definite do again.
The dinner was very good. The portion size was small. It was a very expensive night but i would go back for a special occasion.
Go here all the time. Must have been an offfff nite.
