    We loved the place and the food. We wanted to take our time eating but all the items were on the table within 20 minutes of ordering. Service was extremely nice and courteous but we wanted to not rush. Our reservation was early and not at busy time. Highly recommended! And a gem in Newark.

    Food was not worth the price- there are better Portuguese restaurants in the area. If u want a quick drink before a game or show I guess it’s ok for that but I’d prefer a place with better food. It wasn’t nasty or anything, it was just mediocre at best and not worth the $. We left there and went to casa da paca… Way better food for the $.

    Food was delicious, came really fast, and service was attentive and helpful. We thought veggie and seafood dishes were all creative and flavorful and sangria tasty. We were there for a Flamenco performance and throughly enjoyed that as well, so authentic and passionate. Can’t wait to go back

    We have dined at Mompou several times and it's consistently a great dining experience! I often order a fish entree which is always cooked perfectly, and presented beautifully. There are many interesting and tasty tapas to try. My go to is the grilled artichokes and empanadas. There are several types of sangria, and some fun cocktails to choose from. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

    Charging more for the use of a credit card makes the experience horrible. It is expensive enough. This effected the tip sadly and hurts the servers.

    I would not recommend this place at all. The food was TERRIBLE except for the chorizo, and the restaurant is a complete ripoff. You're better off spending your money elsewhere.

    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.
