The food was so delicious and perfectly cooked to our perfection. Our server, Kearra, was phenomenal. She was so attentive to our needs, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and overall so sweet and caring by making sure our drinks were always filled and our desserts to our liking! The atmosphere was so inviting and romantic. Overall, everyone was so nice, friendly, and we felt so welcomed!!! We were ecstatic about the different menu choices, especially that we in the mood for fish. We ordered the cod and salmon which was done in such a superb and enticing manner!!! We made a point to thank the three chefs because their cooking was of excellent caliber!! We were so delighted and privileged to meet Bri and Julian, the managers because they made us feel so special and appreciated to be there. We will definitely dine there again!!!

Limited menu choices, day time lighting in evening, and poor service is just the beginning. We ended up leaving before we ate due to the lack of atmosphere for a proper dinner. If you want drinks, go to the rooftop. But don't make reservations to eat dinner here.

I made reservations for brunch and when I got there, they had us seated and we wait for about 10 minutes for someone to come in and ask if we wanted water and coffee. We accepted and when it came 10 minutes later we had to ask for the menu, since they didn’t give us anything. They told us they didn’t have the brunch menu anymore and that they were serving lunch, which was disappointing since we made the reservations. After they brought the menu we were waiting for 20+ minutes for someone to come and take our orders. You might think they were busy and the restaurant was full but no - there were LITERALLY TWO other tables besides us. We literally left to go to another place (Uncle Momo, actually recommend that one!) And they made us pay for the coffee. WOULD NOT RECOMMENDED EVER!!!

They still haven’t figured out where the entrance should be and what should be done with the gigantic circular pseudo-entrance. The restaurant was 1/4 full. The menu was literally a bar apps menu (no one mentioned that when we made the res which is laughable as the entrees were Literally a burger, a bean burger, a cheap cut of steak and a red sauce pasta. That’s it. We were 6 people and ordered all of it. We also ordered al of the apps. None of it was bad. I would equate it too Whole Foods buffet good. The space is strange and no one really seems to care to figure it out. The rooftop bar that Is sort of, but not really, connected to the downstairs restaurant is the best example of the current state of affairs. The hotel has a fantastic view of NYC skyline and the First Mountain behind it. How do they empasize it? By closing the drapes. And leaving all outdoor heaters off. Forget showing off your best feature. And the service there is pretty brutal. Everyone is nice - maybe they’re just understaffed? Ill try again in a few years

We also ordered calamari but when we started to eat, most of the dish was fried, breaded peppers and jalapeños with only a 5 pieces of calamari. My girlfriend and I ended up going to Taco Bell after. I would not recommend this place for any occasion unless you are just looking for a bar.

It should be booking in Montclair. There were 3 tables on a Thursday night at 8pm. There were only 4 entree options to choose from. It’s astounding that they’re not busier thus providing more options. But what comes first - the limited menu and sad ambiance causing lack of diners or the lack of diners causing limited menu and depressing ambiance!?!

Only issue was the menus showing online and in reviews are no longer accurate. The new menu is much smaller and less complex. The food was still very well prepared, just a little disappointed since we made reservations anticipating the menu we saw online. The wine list and drink menu has also been drastically cut, no longer a 12 page drink menu and only have about 4 choices in each wine class of white, red, sparkling. Some of the specialty cocktails Are also off the menu. New menu is more in line with the equivalent of what you would find in a courtyard Marriott and not what I would Consider a fine dining restaurant.

Host showed us a magic trick on way to two unset tables that we had to ask to combine for our party of 5. Food was a buffet when the website showed a menu. No bagels available for our lox. OpenTable res times were all filled so I took an 11 am slot. No one was at the restaurant from the time we were seated. They should have called us to cancel and close.

The man at the hotel lobby didn’t give us a good reason why it was closed on a Saturday night or why our reservation was taken. My wife and I were all dressed up for a night out but with nowhere else to go because every other restaurant was booked and we had no reservations except for Allegory. Majorly disappointed both in the restaurant and in Open table for wasting our Saturday night.

Then I said that I was able to make a reservation for 1pm and then he says “brunch is from 8:30 to 10:30, i’m sorry we need to update our site because you were the third person to come in here and we had to turn away” but didn’t he say that brunch ended at 12:30?? clearly there is some miscommunication among the staff. I was very disappointed with my experience. If you are thinking about doing brunch there, I would make sure to call ahead before actually making a reservation and wasting your time!

We had reservations but the "dining" area was very crowded and loud. The young lady at the desk asked us if we would like to go to the roof top and we said yes. After being seated the manager came over to us with menus and said what ever we wanted all we had to do was go up to the bar and order it and our drinks. He did say if we wanted service we could go on the Roof Top and we did. After getting my wife's drink wrong and insisting she got what she ordered we finished and left. And don't get me started on the garage.

Once we got there, the brunch was a buffet style and we were told the a la carte menu was gone. And that they don’t serve alcohol until noon on saturdays but that they close at noon. So why offer it as a brunch option?? Disappointing.

We showed up at 10:30 and were told that because of a wedding party, we’d have to come back at 11. Ok, no problem. We come in 11 and are seated. 10 minutes later our waitress comes out to take our order. A few minutes later, she comes back out and says “The manager wanted me to let you know that the wedding party is still working on their food. The wait for your food will be about 45 minutes.”. Disgusted, we decided to leave. Our time had been wasted. My question is, since the wedding party was already seated at 10:30, why wouldn’t you tell us at 10:30 that there will be a wait on food? Why wouldn’t the manager themselves come talk to us? That is a move of a coward! My husband and I are no strangers to fine dining. I’m not sure what kind of manager hides from their responsibilities.

We sat at a table for 20 minutes without a server. When the server finally came he had a horrible attitude. We waited another 15 minutes for the coffee, tea, and juice to come and placed our order. After an hour and a half we asked for a manager and were told there was not one there. Magically after another 10 minutes a manager appeared. He laughed in our faces so we decided to get up and leave without eating as our food never came out. Completely unacceptable customer service

Good had good flavor, but menu is limited and food was cold. Not worth ordering dessert. Probably a great place for drinks at the bar.

To keep it short, my girlfriend and I ordered the burger (well done) and it took about 45 minutes to come out. When we cut into our burger it was cooked to about medium temp so we had to wait another 15 minutes for new plates with burgers at the correct temp.

The table was dirty - so we were moved inside. Still super loud. No one came to wait on us- so we left— very disappointed. The hotel looks beautiful. I’ve been to the bar on the roof before and it was lovely . We didn’t get to try anything- so the review is only based on the service- cleanliness and intense, loud music.

The first time was excellent, but we were very disappointed this time around. First, we booked an outdoor table but then were told when we arrived that they only had indoor tables available. No apologies. The house music inside made conversation challenging (and it was early, no one was at the bar). We were also told only after we sat that the menu was abbreviated. Only 3 entree choices. I got a burger with fries and the fries, while hot and crispy, tasted like melted plastic. Not an exaggeration. After a very quick dinner we left and sadly we likely won’t be back.
