Definitely a different experience worth having. The food was very good!
One of my favorite spots, always a good choice. A little loud when busy, and the service can be a bit slow (they never bring enough injera and it's hard to get their attention when it's busy to bring more ). But always tasty; I've never had a bad meal there.
It’s weird they won’t let you order two of the same sides.
Good food, healthy flavorful. Good vegetarian choice . Staff were nice and good service.
The staff were all pleasant and accommodating throughout. Our entree’s came out in a timely manner and prepared perfectly.
Great food as always!
We really enjoyed it and all tried something new
This was are 3rd time there we just can't seem to get enough. The wait staff is friendly but not in your face, which I prefer. I took my 80+ year old parents there and they also enjoyed it.
My all-time favorite!
Food is good but the noise level was very high specially when they were playing Happy Birthday songs. They have two ceiling fans, one in the front and one in the back and both fans are operated by a single switch. In a cold winter day, they turned on the fan and when We requested to turn it off as it was very cold, the waiter declined stating that the other fan is on as requested by another guest. Weird! Waiters are polite but have tough time understanding the guests for some reason.
Loved the place. The interesting thing here is that you eat with your hands instead of utensils. Did enjoy. Would probably go back again.
This is my 4th or 5th time at Mesob. The last 2 times the service was terrible, unpleasant and very disappointing. Servers are unpleasant with a negative attitude and not accommodating. Our waitress appeared irritated when we asked questions about the menu. The lighting is very dim making it impossible to read the menu. I planned this dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was a fiasco. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
Great food. Excellent service. The decor is perfect. It was quite busy for a Sunday afternoon. Will go again soon
Excellent food, a wide variety of selections on the menu. Definitely a dining experience. Great atmosphere and service.
Food was very good. Great place for a new experience.
Totally awesome meal and an excellent dining experience. Super fresh food and great service.
Food was excellent the service was good. It was a very busy Saturday night so the normal noisier levels as you would expect. Will be back again.
Quick service before our Wellmont show but you absolutely need a reservation. They get packed, especially on the weekends. Vegan friendly with a great veggie sampler.
Excellent service and food, very quiet and pleasant atmosphere. Definitely bring your favorite drink.
This is a very popular restaurant in Montclair. I’ve lived in town for many many years but have never been until the other night. The food was amazing. However, I asked in the reservation for a quiet, romantic table and we were seated, once a host and a waitress wrapped up their conversation, between a couple with a baby and a table of three adults and three children. We asked to move And were accommodated at a two top at the front of the restaurant. They could stand to put candles on the table and make things more inviting. The wet napkin given at the beginning of the meal was neither hot nor cold and wrapped in a plastic package. Overall, incredibly unromantic but the food was good. The service leaves a lot to be desired. I echo what other people have said in reviews about looking for the server. Go for the food.
Fantastic food! Very filling, authentic, BYOB Ethiopian food!
Was our first time there and will certainly be back soon! Loved the Happy Birthday song :)
I've been going to Mesob for years. Each time it is an amazing meal with warm, attentive staff. I can't recommend this place enough
We went for Valentines Day and had a wonderful experience. We have been to Mesob a number of times in the past and we are never disappointed. Great staff, food and ambience.
It was a fun and delicious experience. Our server showed us how to eat and it was easy to pickup and enjoy the sampling of their wonderful food.
worst customer service I had ever had. Server was super rude.
Food was DELICIOUS.
Food delicious, service attentive and atmosphere pleasing. From the minute you walk in you can smell the pleasant odors before you are seated by the friendly servers. Do yourself a favor and enjoy this wonderful establishment.
This is our 4th time eating there and we keep coming back.
The food is really delicious! We like the spiciness of it and also the variety!
Our friends went for the first time and loved it.
Plus the waitress was so friendly and patient!
Mesob has become a staple in our dining options in this town. Food is always authentic and tasty. Great for groups and lots of vegetarian and non vegetarian options. We love coming here with damily and friends. Staff is damily fron ownership and they take pride in the food and service.
Would go back!!
Always very good
The abrupt announcement of a Birthday was by blasting a song loudly. It interrupted the ambiance, the conversation and the overall mood. My guests and I plugged our ears, and we noted other guests at neighbouring tables doing the same. There were three different occasions in the evening when everything halted for a birthday. Understand, we are young and enjoy loud music. This was loud enough to distort the song. We would expect this at a chain restaurant like TGIFridays, not at an adult oriented establishment, one who presents itself with such an intimate vibe.
The food is always amazing. Seems like we had to wait forever to get a server to order, but the taste of the food more than makes up for what they lack in service.
Great tasty food, the place is small so make sure to make reservations.
It was our first time eating Ethiopian food and it was a pleasant surprise. Very different experience yet very good and inviting . We loved the whole experience from eating with your hands tonthe injera bread which is so soft and so good
As a connoisseur of Ethiopian food this is by far the best in NJ and possibly NYC. Every aspect of the meal was excellent. If you’re famished beware because you’ll have to wait a bit.
Eclectic food choices were either bland or spicy. The chicken dish was very good. Everything else was boring.
Very nice staff, excellent decor and delicious food. Amazing flavor and taste without the issue of leaving with your cloths smelling like the food. Great date spot - bring your own wine/beer.
