We had a wonderful later night meal here this week. The service was outstanding and both our meals were excellent . Live piano music was relaxing and the overall experience made for a perfect night out. We will certainly return.
Excellent food and enjoyable atmosphere; good service despite the full house
What to palazzo for a business luncheon. Excellent atmosphere. Excellent food. Attentive, friendly service. Nice choice of luncheon 3 course fixe prixe, specials and regular menu.
Great food and service. We’ve been there a number of times and it is our “go to” restaurant. It is a great byob location with the added bonus of a piano player. Highly recommend!
Food was outstanding! Love the menu selection and every dish was prepared perfectly.
Have been coming here for years, always excellent. Food, service terrific. We drive 25 miles to dine here, and it is well worth it. Don't miss it.
Palazzo has turned out to be my favorite restaurant in Montclair. What ever I order there is great. The waiters are the nicest. James could not be nicer. Always a great time when we go there.
My wife and I went for dinner on a Sunday night in November. The place had few diners at 7 p.m. and we considered that a plus for us. It was decorated very tastefully, maybe even classically. I ordered the octopus and fava bean appetizer—my wife declared it awesome! She had the lobster spaghetti, quite good, and I ordered the pork chop special—again, awesome! The chop was thick with a cherry sauce, resting on a bed of spinach, next to mashed potatoes with fried flaked pancetta. We shared a creme brûlée that was delicious. We would love to go back. Also, the way the restaurant is divided, you could imagine very easily having large parties in different areas of the room.
Nice restaurant with very courteous hosts and wait staff. The food is good staple Italian at reasonable prices. They have a select wine list, but you can BYO. Ambiance is pleasant. Book for a weekend night because it does get crowded.
Love this restaurant .
Host is as welcoming as he is sophisticated .
Food is superb, piano playing in the background is so nice
It’s always good. Have eaten here many times. Great food and I love John our waiter.
I highly recommend the calamari. I had it as an appetizer and really could have ordered it again as my main course and dessert, it was tastier than any I have ever tried. My main course was veal and shrimp in a wine sauce. Which was very good as well. Dessert was a chocolate soufflé and coffee which was just enough to go home happy. Atmosphere is pleasant, staff attentive and knowledgable. A former co worker and I get together every month for dinner, this was our second visit and plan our 3rd for next month. Excellent food and service. The photo below is the calamari which I would have been happy with alone, next trip that's my appetizer again.
The food was wonderful. The atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. We could actually hear each other talk. One of my favorite restaurants in town.
Always enjoy going to Palazzo the staff are true professionals and the food is always excellent!
Food was amazing! But very overpriced! Had a groupon and would be only way I’d go back. Service was pretty poor! Very slow.
Great meal as usual, waiters there when you need always attentive with some piano music for ambience
The food was wonderful , we had the Tuna Tartar as a appetizer . It was delicious . Main courses were excellent , I had the halibut . I would highly recommend this restaurant only negative was that the wait staff seemed a little disorganized .
We have been there several times and we are never disappointed! It is becoming our favorite restaurant!
My wife and I along with family and friends have dined here on numerous occasions and have always been satisfied with the food, service etc. I will continue to dine at Palazzo. It is a great BYOB location.
The food was wonderful. Loved the specials, pumpkin ravioli and salad special. Service was spectacular. Nice ambiance with a piano player. Would definitely recommend it to others.
Great experience! Food was delicious and the entire staff was friendly and attentive.
Food was mediocre and service was very slow. The music was way too loud and not even close to jazz as advertised.
Great service. Great food. Great value and was able to make a reservation for the time that I needed.
Excellent food, wonderful service. Piano provided nice background music. Matre'd James was warm and inviting.
Wonderful restaurant...great food.. excellent service. Piano music weekrndd...BYOB...will return soon.
Somewhat disappointed; reviews I'd read were generally very positive. Food was only okay. We shared a grilled octopus appetizer that was well seasoned but tough. I had a swordfish special that was dry although tasty and my wife had lobster spaghetti which she found underwhelming. On the positive side, service was excellent. There was a piano player who was good, but pretty loud; would not recommend it as a place for quiet conversation. Unfortunately, not worth the 30 minute drive from home.
Very good! We were a party of 6 and we had a table at the rear of the restaurant - which is generally OK. But with it being warm, the AC had minimal impact and was warm. If you have a party this size and want something more comfortable, be sure to request a table in the first 3rd of the restaurant.
Great menu and very good food!
Very nice and friendly good Food
Panino playing could be just little softer...
Great atmosphere, great food, excellent live piano music that just makes the experience perfect.
Spent a quiet rainy Monday evening in the middle of summer having great food and excellent service. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant.
Absolutely love this place. I'd come here everyday if I coukd💕🍴
The first person you meet is the most important in an establishment of any size.
Walked in and we immediately felt welcomed and significant by a prominent gentlemen with a healthy mustache. Class Act.
Salads were fresh , motzerella cheese homemade .
I was impressed with being asked how I liked my salmon cooked. It was Devine. Salmon was awesome, it was flavorful and tender cooked just right.
I felt that the Veal Scalopini dish lacked luster and flavor.
Loved the piano playing...
Great food! Impeccable service .. Staff pleasant ..
Palazzo is our family's go to restaurant. We have tried many of the entrees and loved them all. The staff is friendly and the parking garage is close.
It's not what it was say five years ago. It felt like a good candidate now for a Gordon Ramsey Kitchen Nightmare episode (i.e., pedestrian menu options, over-salted dishes, dated decor, less than vibrant wait staff). Some people love it, so we wish it well, but we're done.
We've been here many times and have never been disappointed - it was my daughter- in-law's birthday so we chose this restaurant because we know the food is consistently delicious and as always, it was.
Excellent food and service, very good value.
If you haven't been here you should try it!
If you are a fan of bolognese sauce, this is the best I have had. Their Caesar salad also excellent! It is a byo, but if you forget a bottle, they do serve some wine---how, I don't know.
The staff was exceedingly friendly. The food was superb. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
Fourth visit there , always great food and service at very reasonable prices
