If I could give it zero stars I would. We made a reservation for outdoor dining. Abruptly canceled due to "weather". (No rain and other restaurants on same block did not do so). They informed me that no COVID restrictions in place. We figured it's a school night, maybe it's not crowded so we'll try. After all they'll be careful right? Wrong! Well I get that NJ law allows no restrictions but that doesn't mean everyone on top of each other and nobody masked, including small children who can't be vaxxed. There's a sign they say they are keeping clean for COVID. Well not from what I saw. I felt unsafe. And the noise level....like being in a subway. Unmasked waiter had to get in my face because he couldn't hear me. We tried to get our food to go and was informed would take 40 minutes. We didn't want to stay but asked how long it would be if we stayed. We were told...40 minutes. And this on a school night! So they were overbooked, understaffed, canceled our outdoor dining for reasons I can't understand and subjected us to noisy unsafe conditions. THERE'S A PANDEMIC ON PEOPLE! People even vaxxed people are dying. I know NJ law says they can do all this but just because they can doesn't mean they should. No care for the community they serve at all. I was disgusted. I would never ever go back.

Had a great experience at Mocha Blue last night for a birthday dinner with friends. It was a full house but the service did not suffer like it has in the past. Was very impressed with the new manager Gena. She made sure all the diners were taken care of and checked in on us several times to make sure everything was going well. Food was great. We all really enjoyed what we ordered. Will definitely be back soon!

although food was good (albeit overpriced), service was awful. despite arriving at 5:00 p.m. to an almost empty restaurant, hostess would not combine tables because we did not have 8 people, even though 2 of our 6 were toddlers. Instead we were seated at an inconvenient banquette table, where we were essentially ignored by the waiter. Then to our surprise a 20% tip was included, although the menu said nothing about it. Couldn't find our waiter. Another waiter got him. I said I objected in general but also because the service had been terrible. Our waiter instructed the other waiter to waive the tip (as though they were entitled to it) and then he walked off and left the matter to the other waiter. I left a 10% tip, but only because people working in restaurants depend on tips and my tip might be shared with back of house people.

won't be going back.

fyi, I haven't left a review for a restaurant in almost 20 years.

The wait staff was lovely, but management informed us after we had already settled in and started to order that there would be a $30/person minimum because we had made multiple reservations for a large party and were "taking up a lot of space" (the restaurant was empty except for us). We were gathering following a family funeral, and management could not have been ruder. I will never return to Mocha Bleu.

Soups were not hot and water we ordered never arrived. $32.00 for two bowls of soup is outrageous when not even served hot. Waitress did not return in timely fashion to ask for it to be reheated which should not have been necessary from the getgo.

Bathroom was shockingly dirty and toilet didn't flush. Asked for a glass and it was really dirty. I'm sorry, but completely unimpressed. Food is pretty pricey and service is just eh. Waiter was pleasant but disappeared for long periods. Expected more for the price. Outside area looked messy. Girl behind glasses counter had earbuds in . Looked like there was no oversight, no one in charge ensuring that everyone had a good dining experience.

We had an awful experience. First the waitress was clearly not familiar with the menu and could not answer simple questions such as what type of bread was used in the panini. The waitress disappeared and was no where to be found. There was 5 of us. 2 entrees came out and about 20 minutes later the other 2. The 5th entree came about an hour after the first 2. The waitress never checked in with us during the meal, never asked if we’d like refill on drinks. We had to ask other wait staff and the hostess for our check because our waitress never came out. We complained to the manager about the delay with the food, and his response was that he’d talk to the waitress.

The food was extremely over priced. We will not be returning.

Mocha Bleu is our go-to restaurant when we want dairy because they have a wide range of delicious choices and there is always something for everyone. Their food is delicious and presented beautifully, and their service staff are attentive and pleasant. I took my mom out for lunch in honor of her 75th birthday and the waitress brought my mom her dessert with a sparkler blazing and sang happy birthday with me. The rest of the staff, as well as some of the guests, wished my mom a happy birthday and made her day! Also, the patisserie cannot be beat! What a treat to indulge in their gorgeous, delicious tarts and pastries. I think their rugelach are the best outside of Israel. Worth the trip to Teaneck for Mocha Bleu!!

The service was horrendous. Took over an hour for the food to come and one dish was never made. How dare you add a tip to the check with only four people in our party. I had the power breakfast. Avocado never came. Tuna fish must have been a teaspoon. Water served was warm from the faucet and had a horrible taste. No refills on coffee. WhT kind of restaurant do you think you have. I’m writing to the record, the Link and Jewish press. You should be ashamed.
Hashem would be ashamed.

we had to wait 45 min for our table
then waiter said we have 5 min to order
no drinks no desserts
we came with a nice group and were so rushed so we didn't order enough food and left hungry
was so noisy
waiter just gave us check and basically we had a feeling like they wanted to kick us out the minute we sat down,

Noisiest restaurant I've ever been to.
VERY noisy.
Uncomfortably noisy.
Our server was pleasant but service, including getting the check, was VERY slow. 2 hours for appetizers and entrees for 4 and check.
They made a mistake with one of our entrees. Instead of asking whether it would be acceptable, they apparently recooked it and served it well after everyone else was already done with theirs.
Not going back.

Pizza pie arrived unsliced - took 10 minutes to call a waiter (not our waiter, couldn’t find her) to get us sliced and then took a few more minutes to get it back. Pizza was ok , not great. My friends
Enjoyed their salads. I should have just ordered the salad…

The place looks rather nice and informal. I ordered the sea bass rolls which where amazing. The pizza was average although the sauce is pretty good as it was not salty. Had a vanilla shake which was good. On the way out I had some pistachio gelato which was below average. The service was good and friendly.

As always the food was excellent. We only come here for special occasions due to the prices. Unfortunately, the restrooms are in need of attention. We hardly ever saw our server, but this may have been because he knew that with a party of 6 the tip was automatically added to the bill.
