    Great food, great experience! I can not agree that a restaurant with above the average prices still has to charge a fee even if you pay more with a card.. I don’t understand why.. but overall it’s worth a visit!

    Tapas and dessert for a great dinner choice before concert at NJPAC. It is an easy 15 minute walk from NJPAC. Good choice - we had great service and enjoyed several tapas - some were better than others. We especially enjoyed the mussels, baked eggplant and stuffed peppers. The shrimp in garlic were good. The tres leche dessert was outstanding. Yum! Good coffee, too.

    Food is great. Service was wonderful. There is absolutely no soft, absorbing surfaces so it is very loud. There was a group behind who were enjoying themselves, which is nice, but we could hardly hear ourselves over their boisterous laughing. A few rugs or curtains or noise-absorbing tiles would greatly help. I love it and will be back but may bring some ear plugs.

    Mompou is a nice spot that I have stopped at a number of times. We had an outdoor reservation for 10 for dinner on a Thursday night. Reservation had been in place for several weeks. When we arrived table was not ready as they advised prior table had stayed too long. We waited at the bar until our table was ready. Food was good, service was decent. They refused separate checks and did put up a bit of a fuss when we split the check a few ways but finally let us do it. Recommend the tapas over a larger meal to be able to sample things. Would return as I always do but wasn't quite as good as on previous visits.

    Our party of 4 had a late lunch of various tapas and some glasses of red wine. We had the mussels, cod cakes, artichokes, red peppers and empanadas, and all of them were terrific. Service was friendly and perfect, and the setting was comfortable and relaxed. A must-return place when in this area of Newark.

    We hit Mampou after a Red Bulls game with another couple. There were other Red Bulls fans there which added to the fun. We sat up front near the bar, which had a festive vibe, and endured a bit of street noise - sirens, mostly - but could have opted for a quieter table in the back. The service was friendly and doting. The food was delicious overall - we had tapas like mussels, mushrooms, fried cod balls, artichoke, peppers stuffed with goat cheese, chiorzo, salads. The only think we didn't love was the tuna meatballs. The bread and dip that came with the meal was YUM! Everyone enjoyed their premium cocktails but felt they could have been slightly bigger or stronger for the price. We will definitely go back and maybe try the sangria next time.

    Stopped at Mompou before a flight at EWR since it’s just 10 minutes away. It was fabulous! The space has a great vibe. Service was so friendly and efficient. Food was delicious, especially the jamon and manchego croquetas. The cocktail menu looked awesome, but we just enjoyed a lovely glass of cava and a really good Spanish IPA. Think dining there is now going to be a pre-flight tradition!

    The food was outstanding and the decor in the restaurant was funky and really interesting, without being so outrageous as to overtake the dining experience. Would definitely recommend before a show at NJPAC or the Prudential Center!

    One of the best tapas restaurants we have been to. Each small plate was better than the next. I also had a Magarita which was delightful and pretty. It was garnished with a sprig of Rosemary. Highly recommend!!

    Really had high hopes for this place. Loved the ambience and the service was great, although we were eating at 5 before a Gotham FC game at Red Bull Arena so it was not crowded. We started with some red sangria that was ok. Not as good as some others we had. We then had tapas dishes of octopus, empanadas and chorizo. Everything was just ok but would say the octopus was not good at all compared to others I’ve had. Very small Portion even for tapas and there was no seasoning. We ended with some churros which were actually the best part of the meal. The ambience and aesthetic was really nice and location near Newark Penn ideal but it’s all about the food. Likely won’t be coming back as there are other options in the area that are better.

    Tried 6 plates, all were bad to mediocre. Also, "outdoor" seating in their courtyard was an enclosed courtyard with a roof and no airflow, so not really outdoors.
