Calandra's Mediterranean Grill
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.
We had a wonderful dinner at Calandra's on Monday 10/21, food was delicious and service was great. Prices are moderate.
Celebrated birthday there. Beautiful place and the food is so delicious!
Lovely room, but loses on food and overall experience. I'm not sure what others see in this place that isn't in every neighborhood red-sauce joint. Pizza purportedly comes from a special oven, but tastes rather ordinary and doesn't reveal any trace of being cooked in high heat. Pasta was dominated by burned garlic. Desserts are sourced elsewhere, though carrot cake was ok. Service was fine, albeit detached. It's above average for a business hotel if you're traveling, but meh for anyone who is willing to drive for a meal. Located in a Hampton Inn, on a main highway in Fairfield NJ - perhaps that's all you need to know.
The experience at Calandra's was absolutely perfect. We came to celebrate my fiance's birthday and the experience is everything that you expect from Calandra's. The server was excellent and the food amazing! We loved the bread so much that we took them up on their offer to take a loaf home! Thank you for a beautiful evening.
Really was great. Food and service outstanding. Thank you making my birthday extra special. Staff was wonderful!
Calandras always delivers!! Never had a bad meal in all the years I’ve been eating there.
We ate outside in the courtyard, lovely quiet area. The service was excellent, food delicious and Chef Robert stopped by the table to make sure everything was to our liking.
Food was pricey, but delicious. Drinks were good also. Parking was impossible, I had to park illegally to go inside.
Very good as usual. We enjoyed the meal and the staff is great too.
Prices are too high. One of the most expensive restaurants in the area.
The food was really excellent. The grilled branzino special was outstanding. Fresh French baguettes to take home when you leave.
The food was not only delicious, but beautiful to look at. Chef Richard is very talented.
The server Elias was wonderful! So pleasant and checked on us throughout the meal to make sure everything was good. He was excellent!
Excellent food, attentive service, beautiful decor - I highly recommend Calandra's Mediterranean Grill. We definitely plan to visit again.
Great atmosphere outside on the patio. Food and service were great.
Food was excellent! Our server James was fantastic!
I have eaten here many times and this place never disappoints! Excellent food, excellent service.
It was a wonderful summer night and my husband and I had an awesome dinner outside. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect! Will definitely be back!!
My family has been coming to the Mediterranean Grill fo years. The food is always great and the service terrific. This past Saturday we had the duckling and the lamb chops. We will be back soon. Most impressive evening.
Everything was excellent !!!
The prices seem to have nudged up and it was rather slow for a week day night. Had veal saltib. and it was bit chewy. Partner had a pasta dish that was pretty good. Service was attentive. The week before, tried to walk in, it was a weekend, and they had a series of parties. no one was seating people, so we left and hit a place down the road
A truly delightful dining experience.....I've been to the Mediterranean Grill several times over many years and have NEVER been disappointed. We were seated on time, drinks were plentiful, food delicious and a very varied choice of appetizers, salads and entrees.....Dessert selection was excellent. Can't wait to return!
Our daughter treated us to dinner to thank us for helping her this past year!
Felt like I was back in Italy . We sat outside and enjoyed the food , service, ambiance and company. Had a great afternoon while celebrating my moms 91 birthday.
We dine here often and have not been disappointed ever.
We recommend this place all the time.
Food and atmosphere great. Service good but a little slow when asking for the bill at the end. Took 20 mins between asking for the bill to paying for it.
Service for drinks and refilling water could have been better, the food fantastic.
The menu included innovative and seasonal dishes, in addition to standards. The food was well prepared. The wine list was OK. The dessert selections could have included sorbet or gelato; the zabaglione looked like the standard restaurant pudding posing as zabaglione. The service was friendly, though somewhat awkward as 3 diners were served their meals simultaneously, but we had to wait for some time for the fourth meal to be served.
A rare place in this area to sit outside in a quiet, well landscapes courtyard courtyard. Service is top notch and enjoyed the salad with poached pears and chicken.
Calandra’s is always our go to restaurant...food is great as is the service!
Enjoyable and great value! Half price pasta on Tuesdays!!
It's in a hotel
With a bar lounge singer.
Piano Jimmy Sabini excellent. Chef Roberto created a great menu. Octopus app tender, seasoning complimented it. Tender Lamb chops cooked to perfection. And Salmon. Wild caught was also perfect. Service was outstanding.
Menu choices very extensive. Food taste, quality and portion size excellent. Host and all who waited on us were friendly and competent. Only area suggested for improvement is to either clean dining chair cushions or replace chairs. Two of the chairs at our table had dried stains visible as we were seated.
Food is consistently delicious and the service is excellent
As usual, when we arrived with our party, we received a friendly greeting and were seated at a lovely table. The wait staff is always very accommodating to any special requests on the menu and gave us ample time to make selections and waited to place the order for our main meal until we had finished our appetizers. The food is always amazing, from the meatball appetizers, or eggplant rollatini to the main courses, whether they be seafood, pasta or meat dishes. The preparation, presentation and taste are all incredible. The desserts are equally delicious and all in all, a great dining experience that will not disappoint you. One of our favorite go to places to bring special friends for a wonderful dining experience.
Suggestion to the restaurant to lower the dinning room lights a little to create a little more ambiance. The food and the service were VERY good.
