Food was delicious, atmosphere was lovely and service was excellent. Highly recommend!
The big wait. All we did was wait. Got seated right away, waited 20 minutes for someone to ask what we wanted to drink, it would have been longer if we didn’t flag someone down. Waited another 20 for a portion of the drink order to come. Then another 45 minutes to get our meal. Which was also around the same time the rest if our initial drink order came. Food was just ok, nothing to write home about. Then, finally get the check only to be advised that they automatically put a tip on the bill For 2 people! What??? A tip is a compliment for good service and not a requirement, especially for 2 people. Not to say I wouldn’t have left a tip, and I would have completely understood this policy for a larger sized table, but for a table of two, it’s insulting. Absolutely the last time I consider Calandra’s for anything.
The food and the service was impeccable! There is a lot of outdoor covered seating. Unfortunately one table was directly in the path people walked . I felt sorry for the lady’s that were seated there.Also I would recommend moving the seating and ashtray from the exit by the seating . There were 4 men in work clothes drinking beer and smoking. It took away from the ambiance. I do not begrudge them from unwinding after a hard days work, But I think the hotel could make better accommodations for them away from my table. There is only a hand full of tables affected.I would recommend asking for a table away from the hotel exit. Overall a good dining experience. Just hopping the management will see this and make the changes. If so next review would be 5 star
This was my second experience at Calandras and I definitely enjoyed it. They are taking COVID precautions including distanced tables, masks for all servers, and wrapped silverware and napkins which definitely help to put your mind at ease so you can enjoy the food and experience.
The food was fantastic and the service impeccable,
Excellent evening. The food and the entertainment were perfect.
Pretty outdoor surroundings, outstanding lobster ravioli and linguini with clams, excellent Covid prevention compliance, and pleasant background music. Eager to return.
I’ve been coming here for years. First time dining out since Covid. They did a great job with the outdoor seating and protocols. Felt very safe, dinner was excellent! The outside courtyard is beautiful!
Due to the Covid circumstances our hostess gave us the option of dining under the tent on the patio which she said was a bit hotter due to the lack of air circulation or sit under the tent in the parking lot. We decided on the lot since it was dreadfully humid out. And of course there was a thunder shower. Our waiter Miguel and assistant Philippe were super attentive and friendly. Definitely give it a try!
Food, ambiance, and staff were amazing. I would definitely go again.
The ambiance on the patio is lovely. You feel like you’re in a beautiful Italian garden. The food was very good although I felt the portions were small.
The staff was very friendly and polite . Food was reasonable.
We had a relaxing & most enjoyable evening! Great bread, food, service & wine!!
Outdoor seating is in the back. Very quiet. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and had the place to ourselves. Food is excellent
This is my first time to patronizing this restaurant's outside eating area. The service was very prompt and the food was well prepared. I would definitely consider this place as a dining option.
Bday dinner. Gentleman singing was added bonus
Awesome service, ambience and excellent wait staff! I would recommend to anyone.
food and service were excellent. the garden dining area was very pleasant and attractive. precautions for covid were extensive and cleanliness and social distancing were great
Good outdoor dining experience.
First night out in three months. Everything was cleaned every time a customer left. They did a great job making everyone feel comfortable, more than six feet between tables.
The ambiance as nice, the food was great and the service was also good. Good place to go, I would recommend it.
Great menu, food quality and service. Comfortable atmosphere.
Where to begin ... from the time we walked in to the appetizers, main course and desserts, it was a wonderful experience. Elias, our waiter was terrific. Great sense of humor and service was outstanding.
Our waiter, James was great!
Always a great meal and always great service!
The food and service are consistently great. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in the lobby or restaurant. The night we were there was entertainment in the lobby, piano player. A wonderful night out.
Calandra's Mediterranean Grill has great authentic food, service and ambiance. It is a bit on the expensive side for most of the main courses, but it's a good place for special occasions, family gatherings and/or an intimate dinner for two.
was a perfect dining experience. Great food, service and atmosphere.
Food and service always excellent. The family had the Salmon Special, theGrouper Special Ann the Risotto Special on Friday January 10th. The food was among the best meals we’ve had at Calandra’s Mediterranean Grill and we have been coming here for over 15 years. A wonderful evening. Thank you.
Excellent as usual
This is one of our favorite places to enjoy a great meal.
Good food, good service, great place to dine with friends
We had a lovely dinner on Christmas at Calandra's.
Would definitely recommend.
Just had Christmas dinner here.Service was great food was delicious.Will be back for sure.
We had dinner for ten on Christmas Day here recently. All ten meals were different and each person thoroughly enjoyed their meals! Service people had great attitudes but were a little overwhelmed with the crowd. Given the occasion, we were delighted they were available to help us and we very much appreciated their effort. This is the third time we have had Christmas dinner here and each year, the crowd seems to grow as apparently word is spreading as to how great this place is.
Our waiter, James, was great. He was so personable and very attentive.
Pre Christmas dinner with my family. Food, service were both good. House wine is good for the money.
Very nice traditional menu with a few twists. Very accommodating Good wine and bar drinks. The Collandra branded wines are a very good value.
Prices are higher than other similar restaurants in northern Jersey.
We are so happy that Tom is back. Big difference in food and service since his return. Great idea to put a sign outdoors announcing his return. We probably would not have been back unless invited by friends.
