Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant
5 star food
Good food, for lunch not too busy which was good. I asked for my food spicy and it was great.
The only issue is they try to give you privacy and don't check in enough to see if anything is needed.
Meeting friends - good good , ambience, pleasant hostess , and BYO (What's not to like:))
Warm, cozy, smells so great in this restaurant and we absolutely love the food and the whole experience. It’s one of our favorite restaurants in North Jersey!
Mesob is our favorite Ethiopian restaurant- worth the trip, delicious as always!
Great food, great service! A+
Delicious food and a very unique experience. Great time and opportunity to try something ew.
So if you want a change of pace before any activity in Montclair, try this Ethiopian place. Setting is a bit noisy but service was quite good. Food was nicely presented, fresh and flavorful. That said some important factors: 1. You eat with your hands, using pieces of injera ( sort of like rolled up crepes!) to pick up your food which has been dumped on a huge piece of injera in the center of your table 2. With no disrespect, much of it all had the same flavor profile- replete with chick peas, lentils, onion and spices. 3. Since there is no liquor license, remember to BYO 4. Unless you are used to this, ask for MILD- with extra spices on the side!
We love to have dinner here, we can order all vegan, vegetarian, or meat for all our dietary needs. Pleasant environment and service.
Wonderful food and great service!
This is an excellent restaurant. I have eaten at many Ethiopian restaurants and this is one of the best.
Mesob is a fantastic restaurant. The food, the service, and the decor capture of the authentic experience of modern Ethiopian dining. The lamb dishes are perfectly prepared. The lentil vegan dishes are scrumptious. Well done!
We never had Ethiopian fare before and quite enjoyed it. I'm not sure it would be up there with our favorite foods but a great experience , the ambiance was unique and the service was good for peak traffic time. The food was quite flavorful and prepared well. We enjoyed it and would definitely recommend Mesob to others.
From the minute we walk in to Mesob I feel comfortable, warm and love the scent and taste of the Ethiopian foods It’s truly an experience for all of the senses! Wish we could get there more often!
One of my gf’s favorite restaurants.
A treasure!! One of a few restaurants I go on a regular basis. The servers are very friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent!!!
This was my second time, and it was delicious! The staff was wonderful, the food even better.
The food was outstanding but the service sketchy. The waiter waited on the table that sat down after us first. Food was served well and in a reasonable amount of time. It was delicious. We sat for 15 minutes after we were done eating before they took our plates and waiter for fifteen minutes after that hoping for someone to offer coffee or dessert. Finally flagged down a waiter to get the check. We still would go back for the food .
Wife’s first time eating Ethiopian food and she loved it
Great food, superb service... I’ll definitely be going back again
My wife showed me this place and I loved it. We will be back many more times
$125 wasted. Food is very average and over priced. Some dishes were too bland and tasteless. One of the things we ordered was dinner for 3 for about $80 and the quantity of the veg dishes was very small I.e probably 2 table spoons each. I will never go there again.
Great food and atmosphere. As always. Will be back soon.
I loved the food in Mesob. Would come again. It was super busy. The waiter who served us was good but we wanted to order something more later but none of them would even look at our table or would come and ask if everything was fine. We just let it go and had our dessert somewhere else.
Delicious rich flavors of Ethiopia!
I continue to enjoy Mesob and believe it is one of the best culinary experiences in Montclair!
Delicious selection for vegetarians & vegans, and many options for meat eating friends. Just be careful to get a separate plate!!
Love this restaurant. Food is consistently good and great service. Very relaxing BYOB atmosphere.
Great food with a wonderful service. I went there with my friend on Friday night and was very pleased. If you like to try new things and flavors this definitely a place to go.
The food was unique and excellent; the portions were perfect. You can order some dishes mild, medium or spicy, but the medium was less than "medium" so if you like a bit of a kick, go for the spicy! A fun place. BYOB
Food is always magical. Although I miss the beautiful “bar island”. The open space makes it look more like a cafeteria.
Went on Friday for my partners bday, it was perfect as always. We usually get all vegetarian but tried a chicken & a beef dish & both were outstanding. Service is always kind, quick & helpful. I recommend Mesob to everyone.
My husband and I went to this place on Saturday. The prices and the amount of food that were served was very off putting. I sat down and 8:30pm and no one came to our table for 20 minutes. I have been here before and I absolutely loved it and now I will not be returning. I was very disappointed with the service and the food.
Just ok. Been to better Éthiopien restsurant. Bit on the pricey side
the venue handled my daughter's celiac disease well and there were many gluten-free options.
Lovely quiet spot with excellent food and friendly but not at all intrusive wait staff. Highly recommend!
Great food. As always. We had the starter sampler and meat sampler. Dessert also. The espresso torte is awesome!
The service and food were excellent as usual. We were out for a friends birthday and they played music to wish him a happy birthday. The whole night was a great experience. Would highly recommend!!
Food is always good & filling at Mesob. Servers were friendly & nice. Place was noisy even though we were there at 6pm and only a few diners were present, it wasn’t the background music but I guess the place enhances sounds too much. Overall, it’s the good food & service that makes us come back.
Excellent food wonderful staff just a little loud but an amazing dinner spot
