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.
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.
Mesob is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is amazing, and I just love the smell of the cloves and spices as you walk in. I always have a great meal here.
I love Mesob! I brought my team from work here for dinner, 5 of us all different ethnicities and they all loved the food, the variety
The only bump this night was the service. I think they were understaffed and very slow to open our wine, slow to take orders.
Montclair is a BYOB and the hostess gave us some BS about not putting our liquor on the table and then waiter said it was cool. I think she was in a bad mood because they were busy
But I've had so many good meals there I would give them the benefit of the doubt
My 2nd or third visit to the restaurant. Once as a carnivore and once as a vegetarian. Both times plenty to choose and preppared with love.
Great food and very good prices.
Excellent food! Absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is lovely.
My favorite restaurant in Montclair NJ!
This is always a great experience! One caveat-noise level on Saturday nights is intense.
Excellent food quality and presentation. Great service, nice decor, energetic feel and lively ambiance. They were busy when we went, but service was flawless and welcoming. Overall, a good value for the money in an authentic setting. Very enjoyable.
I love this place! It is the perfect spot for lunch or dinner!!!
