Enjoyed my birthday lunch here. First visit - Nice decor, spacious. Server turned down the music volume for us so we had a quiet relaxing lunch. Would recommend to friends & family. Server was v nice. Lunch kebab special @ $15 is a good price. We also ordered half carafe of wine & baklava dessert (3 pieces). Appreciated the validated 2hr parking for downtown Montclair.

Food was delicious. We got the hummus and the grilled shisito peppers as an appetizer. I had the manti which is mushroom dumplings they were amazing. My date had the beef shiskab which wa so tender.
The only complaint is that we say close to the door and it was very chilly whenever anyone would come through

Zeugma is great. Excellent dinner menu, casual Mediterranean atmosphere, and plate after plate of delicious food. Bring more fresh pita and slow down the pace - I'll be back.

Great meal out this past weekend. We were seated immediately and couldn't stop talking about how pretty the space was. Somehow, the food was even better than the ambiance! Between the two of us, we ordered four small plates, all of which were amazing. I was blown away by the apricot salad, which is interesting, because I'm not sure I've ever said that about a salad. The lamb hummus, sala taam, and borrek were delicious, as well. Next time, I'll want to try an entree, but this was a nice way to sample the menu. Our server was really nice but perhaps more attentive to the larger tables--understandable, given that there were quite a few big groups. I look forward to trying the brunch menu sometime, too. Overall, a great place for either a group or a date, with a wide variety of (tasty) items on the menu.

Everyone in our party agreed that their appetizers and entrees were excellent. An odd Wine list - listed only the style/varietal not the vintner. I was unimpressed with the wine offerings. Service was just ok - waiter was polite but not very attentive....he never check in with the table so anytime we wanted the waiter, we needed to seek him out and wave him over.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here and look forward in the near future to another. The food was perfect. The only item that may need improvement is that they serve to quickly and you must tell them to slow down the courses.

We love Zeugma and it is one of our “go to” places in Montclair. The service is outstanding and the food is consistent. I’m a vegan so the options are fairly limited. I love the hummus and the shepherds salad. This time we ordered the “root vegetables” which was basically roasted fingerling potatoes, Brussel sprouts and carrots. They were really tasty and delicious dipped in the hummus or plain. I ordered them vegan, so they left out the butter they typically use. We’ll be back soon!

I had another great meal on Saturday night wife my wife and two of my grown kids. We were celebrating my birthday. I love this place. The space is beautiful and there is always an exciting buzz among the diners. Service is friendly and efficient and the food is creative, delicious and well presented. We started off with a selection of cold appetizers and a shepherds salad. Wonderful! We ordered four different entrees (salmon, steak kebabs, dumplings and chicken). Portions are generous and extremely tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant

We celebrated two birthdays at Zeugma friday night. My daughter and I are fussy about food. The food selections were creative and tasty, the pita was hot! The babaganoush and humus fabulous, We shared two interesting salads, the lamb chops- perfection. Desserts perfect. Wine selection fabulous as well...If you enjoy Mediterranean food - go! note- it is noisy. Why restaurants are not aware of accoustics these days is unfortunate. Hardwood floors and glass windows do not deaden sound. But in Zeugma, the sounds were all joyful.

We ate here on the Sunday night of Presidents’ Day weekend. The kitchen closes at 8:30pm and our ressie was at 8pm so we felt rushed. Additionally, toward the end of our meal, they were mopping floors and made it pretty clear they were ready for us to go.
But the food was good and the staff was nice.

Had a LOVELY Valentine's Day Prix Fixe 3 course meal. It's BYO so it was quite inexpensive. Service was attentive but rushed. We were in the late seating so there was no reason to bring our apps/entrees so close together. I had to ask them to slow it down. The food was delicious and I love the ambiance. Feels like you're on vacation in the Mediterranean. Highly recommend but tell them you want to linger when you're seated.

Fourth time there. First time was great second time was good. Third time was OK. This last (fourth) time was fair. Service was OK. Food was decent but the portions of salmon has shrunken considerably since my prior visits Ambience fair but tables are I spaced quite close to one another making it very crowded. Noise level on a Saturday night was abysmal. Left and went somewhere else for dessert. Probably not going to return as there are so many other wonderful dining options in Montclair

My wife and I joined another couple for dinner Saturday night. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and seated at a comfortable spacious table in this beautifully designed restaurant. Service was professional and attentive without being intrusive. The place was hopping and the noise level was a bit high but we were able to talk with each other without having to raise our voices. We ordered a Sheppard Salad and avogannush as starters for the table. Both dishes were well presented, generously proportioned and delicious. We each had a different main course and every one was excellent. I enjoyed the salmon served over roasted Brussels sprouts and purée artichoke hearts. Absolutely delicious! My buddy had the shrimp casserole. He raved about the flavor. Our partners ordered grilled lamb and steak kebabs and loved their choices. All together, we had terrific experience and will definitely be back again

Zeugma is so excellent! My sister took me here last summer for my birthday dinner, and I have been back three times since. The food is extremely fresh and delicious - just enough spice, and you feel like you've been transported to a beautiful Mediterranean location while eating it. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating - they filled our bowl with pita bread multiple times. The hummus and various mezze plates are amazing! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a delicious meal in an awesome Montclair spot!

Delicious!!! We had the grilled octopus which was amazing, calamari which was awesome and the mezzo trio which was wonderful. For an entree we had some salads because we were so full from the terrific appetizers. Salads were yummy too! Best Buratta ever.
