The food here is dreadful. Definitely the worst meal I had on my recent trip to the USA. On the plus side, we were able to BYO so had lovely drinks and the being in great company helped. The food was either burnt (crabcakes), tasteless...More

Although I've had a good experience (not great) in the past, my visit today was an overall fail. Calamari starter was rubbery, luke warm and the dipping sauce equivalent of a jarred ragu. We sent it back (the waiter did remove it from the bill)....More

I was thinking of where to go in Montclair for a leisurely birthday lunch-brunch with my wife and sister. I didn't want Asian, Italian or Pub Grub; a coffee shop wouldn't cut it and then a friend suggested Uptown596. What a great choice. Situated in...More

Sometimes restaurants survive because of location. Although he food is average/good there is a robust lunch crowd. Service isn't always good but food is especially breakfast items.

Solid Turkey Club made with real turkey and plenty of bacon. Avocado is a nice touch. Wish the place was closer to me. I'd be getting it all the time.

Enjoyed lunch outside at this seemingly trendy bistro. Chose the Spring Mix salad with strawberries, gorgonzola, and walnuts. The mix including the vinaigrette was tasty, however, the strawberries tasted frozen--exceptionally cold and mushy. My friend's Nicoise salad with seared tuna was plentiful and tasty. Unfortunately,...More

We had purposely avoided this place for quite some time due to being treated in a snotty fashion once before. Went back a month or so ago with friends who had picked it. Found the food to be average, and several fish choices to taste...More
