Reservations made for a party of 5 to celebrate my wife's birthday, as she chose this restaurant. Greeted right away and had our reservation (informed them of my wife's birthday). Seated quickly. it is a BYOB so when the host saw we had wine, took care of the wine right away. Menu was very good having a vegetarian offering and also a tasting offering that my wife chose. Nice appetizers. I chose the hanger steak and since I am on a keto diet asked if I could substitute a vegetable for the parmesan fries. It was no problem. Appetizers came out quickly and since my wife had the tasting offering two of the five parts of the tasting cam out together with the waitress asking our approval. All the entrees cam out together and my Hanger steak with lemon spinach and substituted broccoli rabe was delightful and before I knew it was all gone. But the ultimate strokes of genius was the dessert. The warm apple crostata that I had was perhaps the best tasting dessert I have ever had at a restaurant and two orders of the molten lava cake were eaten so fast. Since my wife got the tasting offering she receive a dessert consisting of three samples. This too did not last long. To make the evening more special my wife received a birthday card from the owners of the restaurant. The ambiance nice, but the restaurant décor was only OK. However, we didn't come to look around, we came to eat. My wife was extremely satisfied and so were the rest of us. This is one of the more expensive restaurants in Montclair, even with the BYOB, but you will get what you paid for. Thanks Fascino for a delectable dinner. More

We love Laurel & Sage. Not only is the food fantastic, but the staff is attentive and friendly. We’ve dined here several times, but our go-to dishes include the shrimp and chorizo risotto, short ribs, crab cakes, and the kale salad... all fantastic! We highly recommend Laurel & Sage. NYC quality food in the heart of Montclair. More

Our server Fabio was attentive and enthusiastic making our group of 8 celebrating a birthday special. The staff was friendly and warm to us. It made our night out feel special and worth the visit. The food was excellent, everyone in the group enjoyed the ambience, and menu selection. The specials for that evening had a considerable amount of options aside from the regular menu options. More

Highly recommend Pig & Prince. I have been there 4 or 5 times and the food gets better each time. The menu changes each season so it's not the same old thing every time. I have head pork, chicken, fish and beef on my visits and every time my meal was prepared to perfection. More

The Eggplant Rollatini was delicate and well balanced. To my taste, the Sea Bass Puttanesca was a bit heavy-handed with the tomato sauce overpowering the fish. The Chocolate Lava cake was perfection! Service was attentive on a Saturday night. More
