Slow service ( 15 minutes after we sat down before our drink order was taken)
Ungracious service ( waiter asked to order as we ordered the drinks)
Table so small could not fit enter on table until appetizers were removed
Halcyon Brasserie has an extremely inviting ambiance, great for a date night. The decor is fun, lots of flowers, and very romantic. Food was amazing, well plated, presented in style. We enjoyed our night and our waiter was funny, attentive, and knowledgeable. Would recommend for sure and will definitely dine again.
Nice restaurant, great atmosphere but a bit loud like an ecochamber. Food was a little disappointing. We had the scallops which were underwhelming and the Paella was good but was nothing special. The side of bok choi was lifeless. The highlight was the Kale Salad special and the Harvest Salad.
our favorite local restaurants, always a good selection of oysters.
They were surprised I showed up for a reservation. It wasn’t my first choice of table and too close to the live music.
My favorite server wasn’t there , but food was still excellent !!
If you wanna spend $150+ for a date and have her happy it’s worth it, depends on what your piece of mind is worth
The service was lovely. The tacos were terrible and don’t reflect the quality of the other dishes. It was quite disappointing.
This was our first time here for my Husbands Birthday. From our amazing grilled oysters to special Kale salad to main course, everything was absolutely so delicious and delightful! Food was amazing!!! Ambiance and waiter was wonderful! My husband was so thrilled. Perfect night and we will be back!
One server for all of upstairs on a Friday night. Food was mediocre. Had scallops, crab cake and steak. Best item was appetizer of tuna tacos.
The food and its presentation was absolutely first rate. Portions were very large, which some may see as a distraction, but no one’s hunger will survive this restaurant. A wonderful place
Always a great time, and delicious food!
It looked closed from the outside but it was definitely open! We walked in and it was beautiful! It wasn’t loud, it was a super cute restaurant. My friends and I will 100% go back - we all said how nice everything looked and how delicious the food was as well.
Great menu - different choices that most restaurants have.
Beautiful restaurant both inside and out in beautiful Montclair. My friend and I enjoyed the ambiance very much, food was delicious, drinks were top notch, and service was great. We waited a while towards the end to get our check (waiter must have been very busy as we didn't see him for almost 30 min towards the end), but overall a great night.
Good atmosphere. Good food. Service can be spotty. Servers are conscientious, but inexperienced.
We went for Sunday Brunch & it was exceptional. My friend & I will be back for more mimosas & flat bread. :)
My wife and 2yr old daughter decided to have an early dinner here on a Saturday. My wife and I really enjoyed the seafood, and our daughter loved the margherita flatbread. The decor and ambience were really nice. The service was also really good. I would highly recommend going here.
We were there for my birthday. Excellent as always.
Tremendous restaurant with amazing food. Great place for special occasion or for casual dining.
Great restaurant! First visit and will definitely return!
Great food in a great atmosphere. The paella is excellent
We booked and requested outdoor. Halcyon called morning of and stated would not be doing outdoors seating and would we like indoors. I tentatively agreed, checked with my friends. We went, got seated literally in a spot everyone needed to pass by our table to enter dining area. Also seated us next to another party, despite areas with no one seated. It’s a narrow space. At the end of our meal, friends went to bathroom in rear. Discovered they were seating people outdoors! Furious, my first experience with this restaurant and won’t be going back. The food was fine, pricier than any other option we had- given only doing indoors. And, fwiw all restaurants in area around them were seating outdoors.
Great spot for date night. Food was delicious and ambiance was romantic.
The service was good the food was amazing! Our server made sure to check on us which was nice considering it was busy.
Second time in this place and we had the same waiter! Mark if you see this you’re an absolute gem!!! Excellent service and excellent food! Pretty sure I’ve finally found my favorite restaurant in jersey!
We were there on a Thursday night and as requested we had outside seating. The service was pretty good and the outside ambiance was fun and great! The noise level was manageable considering it is outdoor. We ordered different dishes and they were all equally delicious! Will definitely be back when we are back in town.
Mackenzie, our server, was absolutely amazing. Outdoor ambience is a nice touch. Food was absolutely delicious - had the grilled oysters, beau soleil oysters, caesar salad [LOVED], sushi special of the day & paella. Their wines by the glass selection is pretty good. Overall great first experience, definitely coming back soon.
Seated outdoor. First, it took 5 to 8 mins for the hostess to come to the table to seat us. Then the waiter was very slow, the soda we asked for first was flat so we asked for another soda and the waiter never came back to the table with the drink. So my husband had to go to the bar to get our drinks. The bartender felt so bad that he gave us the soda on the house. After the waiter saw us drinking he never apologized or asked even once if we were good. The service needs improvement. Also, the the paella dish we bought didn’t have lobster. It had 3 shrimp, one scallop and lots of chicken. Not worth the money spent.
Lisa our waitress, was fantastic, she knew the menu and made dining an experience.
Great food. Service was excellent. Drinks were delish.
Sophisticated dining in an out-of- the-way part of Montclair. The food was fantastic, although the portion on my main course was a little skimpy. Service was friendly but a little slow and disorganized. My wine came well after our appetizers. Firsts - duck salad and thai-style mussels, superb. Mains: a swordfish special with sweet potato- wonderful. My main was billed and scallops with English-pea gnocchi and vegetables - only 3 scallops and 2 gnocchi hiding somewhere on the plate of mostly veggies. Good but for $38 I expected more. Flourless chocolate cake for dessert was excellent. Lovely decor, a bit on the noisy side.
Amazing food and great service
The food was fresh and fast and very flavorful!
We were quite surprised to be charged $3.00 for a second cup off coffee in addition to the $3.00 for the first cup.
Very nice restaurant good food great service hard to park. Have quarters ready for meters . Expensive for what they give. Portions small. But fresh and delicious. . Noisey but was a fun place that has a huge bar. I will go again but not anytime soon. Will wait till the winter bc parking is hard to find a space.
I have been to Halcyon many times. We sat outside under the tent. It is a great structure and we felt very comfortable.
The food is always good but this time, my husband ordered simply grilled salmon. Although it was tasty, the size of the portion was about 4x3, definitely NOT a portion size for anyone. It came w/ broccoli rabe and potato but he was still very hungry. My simply grilled shrimp were good, also with a side of potato and brussel sprouts. The portion was 5 small-medium shrimp.
The apple crumble was delish.
They should work on portion size.
Next time, I will approach the manager.
Come here often because ofcthe great food and staff. One of our Montclair favorites
The menu, cocktails, and service are all stellar!!
Very cute restaurant! The food and drinks were really good.
Love everything about Halcyon! Food, staff, outdoor - all amazing !
We ordered the lobster flatbread special, the lemon zest over whelmed our palates. Cornish hen entree was bland, skin was not crisp, and polenta watery. Scallop entree the protein was cooked properly but the accompaniments were inedible. On the upside the mussels were delicious as usually and the services was excellent. I’ve been to Halcyon many other times and will give benefit of the doubt that this was a one time experience.
