Server was attentive and food was great! Really liked the intimate ambiance of the restaurant. Great value and BYOB which is always nice!
This is without a doubt the best restaurant in Montclair for fine dining, so you have to be ready to pay the price. No matter what we order it is always fantastic!
We were so impressed with Fascinos! We loved the food and the service - everything was amazing! Don't miss this wonderful experience.
Our dinner as usual was delicious. But my brother’s birthday was not recognized until after our bill was paid. Even though it was noted on the reservation; we ordered 2 deserts and wait staff was asked earlier to take away wrapping paper from a present.
As we were getting ready to leave the waiter belatedly brought over a scoop of ice cream with a candle.
Everything was amazing, from the maitre'D tothe food, presentation, ambiance. Everyone was super courteous including the other guests. Definitely food to spark conversation
Food was truly excellent. Only thing that was a bit off putting was the music. Pop radio music didn't fit and took away from the experience of eating wonderful food.
Fist let me make a correction the address is actually 331 Bloomfield Ave not 33 as list d by OT
We were celebrating our friends anniversary!
This place is perfect for any occasion!
Two couples went to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Service was great and the food was fabulous. Will definitely be back
Excellent food, excellent service! Highly recommend!
We wanted a special dinner to celebrate a 50th birthday. This was the BEST possible choice.
last meal was very good, but it can be a bit spotty. Service is always excellent. We eat there fairly often and like it a lot. Best restaurant in Montclair, NJ. Being able to bring your own wine is a plus.
Deliciously elegant with excellent food and service.
Fascino is the best restaurant in Montclair! The service is incredible and the food is even better! I'd recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind paying for great good, great ambiance and great service.
Appetizers were really good, we had the octopus and the filet mignon carpaccio. Our dinners were bland and needed more seasoning. For dessert the cheese plate, it wasn’t anything like we have had in the past, it did disappoint us a bit. Still overall a good experience. They have nice relaxing music on the background and the wait staff are on top of things.
Fabulous ! Great value.
Excellent top to bottom. Fish, pasta and starters all outstanding. Consistently great experience.
Date night/new job celebration
Great experience, great service
This place was great! Loved the food (polenta fries and gnocchi!) And the service was great. Worth the $menu!
Amazing from start to finish. The food is out of this world.
Great service. All staff were attentive good humored and knowledgeable. Mussels were awesome and we pretty much try them everywhere so we know. - entrees were top notch. Would definitely recommend for ambiance and food.
Everything at Fascino is always excellent. It had been a bit since my last visit, and they did not disappoint. Good Vegeyarian options for one of my group. Duck breast was perfect!
The meal started with the rubbery calamari - a special for the evening. My scallops were average. Her hanger steak was very tender but had no taste.
Fascino lived up to previous reviews. Very good food - consistently. Excellent service. The restaurant can be noisy what with private parties and a band in the front. If you want quiet, ask for a booth or table in the back. If Pasqualina is there, ask for her too.
Another fantastic meal at Fascino. We tend to wind up there for special nights out. Was glad the menu had some new dishes (pork chop saltimbucca) in addition to the classics. Always a class act. Love that it's BYO, making it a responsible price for a fantastic meal.
Fascino is fabulous!
Chef Ryan is wonderful and so is the staff!
Amazing meal worth the hour ride to get there!!
Wonderful service and every dish, from appetizers to desserts, was excellent. No complaints whatsoever.
The food and service were very good. I was disappointed that the restaurant website did not state that it was BYO. We were given the option of ordering a bottle of wine (expensive) to be delivered to our table from a nearby liquor store. We passed on this choice and had water with our meal.
Everything was amazing from the food, staff and attention to detail. We loved the grilled Octopus appetizer which was executed to perfection. The entrees were excellent as well. Would recommend to anyone who appreciates great food and service.
Nyc quality- delicious food, excellent service. Will be back again!
Everything was great. Except food took over an hour to come on our table.
What a wonderful experience! Fascino offers a quiet, romantic setting with unhurried, impeccable service. The menu is a delightful blend of dishes that are inventive without being pretentious. So many up scale restaurants now seem to be using unusual and rare ingredients and sacrificing the dish itself...it can get lost in the myriad of textures and exotic flavors. Not so here; each dish was perfectly seasoned and a part of the whole meal. The Beef Carpaccio and the homemade pastas were delicious. The pork chop was so moist and smoky. And the Molten Chocolate Cake was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. We will be back.
Amazing Food! Service was wonderful and it felt NYC without NYC prices!
We enjoyed this restaurant so much. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious, and we found it refreshing that the chef did not rely on salt for flavor. Each dish was excellently crafted and we all found our meals far exceeded our expectations. The four of us are anxious to return and try more dishes. It was a great birthday dinner, and I couldn't be more pleased.
Excellent food and service. The manager circled the tables often making sure everything was ok and an A+ for BYOB.
The only one minus we didn't expect and appreciate was the lack of flexibility with the tasting menu. In my party of five, us, three women, wanted to order from the regular menu, and the two guys wanted to try the tasting menu. We were told by our waiter that we all needed to order from the tasting menu or the regular menu; so it was one or the other, which was disappointing. Regardless the food was delicious; we all decided for the tasting menu since the guys could always eat more. Definitely worth every penny! But would have liked to have a choice on what I wanted to experiment with, as opposed to being one option or the other.
Great place to have a romantic or get together with friends dinner. Service and ambience is great, food is fantastic.
Our favorite local restaurant. First class service, unbelievable food. The ambiance is cozy and romantic, the only reason I took a star away from it was the music: classic rock’s greatest sing-along hits. Not loud, but it still begged for your attention, which seemed out of place. Sometimes incongruity can elevate all the elements of a work of art, but not in this case. Still, an absolutely unbelievable meal!
Fascino is BYOB, so you can create your own wine pairings.
We made up our own tasting menu. It started with seared foie gras of the day, on brioche toast with a drizzle of honey that melted in our mouths. I would say "like butter", but that would be gross. Like chocolate truffles, perhaps.
Next up was a sculptured Caesar salad - a wedge of baby romaine, with tender prosciutto (no strings attached!), covered in a powdery snowfall of finely grated ricotta salata and a hint of roasted garlic.
Next was a plate of agnolotti in a buttery basil pesto, stuffed and covered with a variety of wild mushrooms. My wife's mild mushroom allergy meant most of that dish was mine, although she loved the pasta.
I finished with a plate of ricotta gnocchi, with a sausage bolognese, fresh basil and grated pecorino. Best gnocchi I've ever had.
My wife had bronzino, perfectly done with crispy skin, resting on a bed of crab fondue, couscous, raisins, olives, baby squashes, and meyer lemon cream.
They make everything in-house - pasta, desserts (including gelato), sauces, bread. So we each had a single scoop of gelato. Hers was caramel, mine was hazelnut with bittersweet dark chocolate sauce. Both were among the best gelatos we had ever tasted.
We've avoided this place for years, because of Montclair's notorious parking. Uber saved the day. We'll be back.
Delicious food in a beautiful setting keeps us coming back time after time. Very friendly staff and management.
