    Great space and courteous service. Food and drinks were delicious. We had 1 charcuterie (olives) and 4 tapas. (Artichokes, lamb chops, chorizo and squid ink paella) Plenty of food for just the two of us. My only advice would be to ask for plates to come one at a time. We felt a little rushed. Our son is there today ( just a day after we were there) … we suggested he ask for more relaxed service. We shall see …

    We had a great time yesterday as we always do. The service was great. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because the food took longer than usual to come out. However, it was busy and i never saw a server not running around so we were very patient. I am STILL a huge fan of this place. One of our must visit places whenever we are in Newark.

    The food and drinks were delicious! I highly recommend the infused spicy vodka cocktail-it was really good. Our waitress was very attentive and service was great! We went on the early side so the restaurant was very quiet; we were hoping for a little more fun in the atmosphere but it was probably due to the time we went

    One of the best restaurants I been lately. The food was amazing, the entertainment was on point. The flamenco show was one of the best I seeing in a local restaurant. It was my first time dinning here but I am sure it won’t be last. The services was great. My sister is a world traveler and I took her here to celebrate her birthday, she loved the all experience.

    Will return. Tapas and regular entrees all quite good. Garlic shrimp especially tasty. Salmon entree very nicely done. Clean flavors, well-seasoned, not over-salted. Wait staff very gracious, on-point but not overbearing. Surprisingly good martini. Could do without TVs for people to watch sports, thankfully on mute so not intrusive. Interested to go back and try a few more dishes.

    It’s was a great experience! The food; excellent as always, the music and the musicians were amazing, but the service was not good because there were too many people for only two waiters. Max, one of them is the best. He is a very nice person who knows his work perfectly. He is also able to remember our favorite drinks, without ask. He really cares the service and his goal is the customers at Mompou experience something to remember.

    We ordered 3 additional tapas after our I initial order and only 1 came out. When We asked about the other 2 we’re told that everything in our order had come out. No apology or offer to get us the other 2. The service wasn’t the best, the place was not that busy but they seemed disorganized.

    Have been there multiple times, but this time the food was just ok. The service was a disaster. They got everything wrong, and the waiter came to our table 30 min after we ordered and asked us do we want desert. We did not even get our food yet.

    We’ve been to this restaurant previously and had a very good dining experience. The restaurant has a great vibe but that wa really the only positive unfortunately. Upon entering the restaurant we were escorted to the table with little less than a nod. The Sangria was bland and sugary, almost as if it was watered down. All of the food was cold and had little taste. The shrimp ajillo was so overdone we could not eat it. Needless to say we will not be returning.

    This is our second visit and the last as well. The food is really tasty but portions are embarrassingly small. Prices reflect FULL size entrees and also normally sized appetizers. Service is scattered on the weekends though I understand the lack of help everywhere. As an example, the paella comes out in a small pan and lacks even basics like enough rice.
