Sayola Montclair Restaurant
This place always meets or exceeds expectations. The amazing food is only outshined by the wonderful service.
Excellent service and great food
Food was delicious. Service was attentive. It is BYO but doesn’t take away from the experience. I enjoyed everything. Grill cook knows what they’re doing, A+ churrasco.
My husband and I loved our meals and the atmosphere. The owners are so nice, going to each table to insure everyone has a great experience.
The food was excellent!!! Great place to eat!!! The service was great!!
This restaurant never fails to impress. The service is top notch. The food is incredible. The ambience is just spectacular.
delicious food and excellent service! a little hard to hold a conversation though!
Got sick after eating seafood paella. Shellfish and lobster were not fresh.
The food was delicious, but very much overpriced (so much so that we won't return). Service was pleasant but inexperienced.
Pretty space, but the food wasn't that tasty and sort of felt like it was stuck in the 1980's in terms of appearance. Also, an item on the menu that appeared vegetarian contained bacon that was not disclosed.
Love the Menu choices and food quality!
A bit pricey, even for Montclair, but just might be worth it !!
Great food and ambiance. Too noisy at times and many interruptions from the waiters every few minutes (did not allow conversation) and felt he was rushing us. Will give it a second chance because food was excellent.
Another fabulous meal at Sayola
Our favorite spot in Montclair
Bronzino in sea salt is amazing
The veal and paella was also excellent
A place not to b missed
Excellent dining experience! Service was great, food was delicious. And the place is beautiful
quality from start to finish. excellent food and preparation.
Dinner with friends to celebrate their birthday. Food was great, delicious. Service very attentive. Got very busy around 8pm and very loud. Good value too
Great place and the owner is beyond amazing. Similar to most restaurants in Montclair it is BYOD- however they have a list available where you can purchase from the neighboring liquor store and they will have it delivered to your table!
Beautiful interior and attentive wait staff. We had the gambas appertizer, salads, and the Valencia Paella. All delicious. Warning, the Paella is enough to feed four !
Delicious food and wonderful service!
Excellent service and the menu will not disappoint.
This is an incredible restaurant from the fantastic service we got from a young server (name something like Pran)to the generous excellent food we ordered
Looking forward to going back, it’s byob and the place while dress is casual , the restaurant is very beautiful
Great food..owner is attentive..staff was excellent...superior service. Will be coming here again.
Overall the quality of the food was very good in terms of the pieces octopus was a very nice piece card was a very nice piece.Hey I looked delicious on the surface however the taste of all these fools were very bland overcooked or undercooked so I think it was more the preparation and the chef first of the quality of the food the Paiea had chicken inside of it which was extremely dry the ceviche appetizer we had was delicious overall I would not recommend this restaurant especially for the price value it’s a shame because they do serve nice pieces but clearly the chef needs to be improved.
The best for casual and special date nights. Anniversary date night's a success. Love everything.
Expensive, even for Montclair, but very good menu, food, and service!
The smaller side room is definitely quieter, than the main room.
Our first time at this restaurant. Overall everything was fine. Food was delicious and fresh. Two people at our table ordered a fish that needed to be deboned , the first fish was done right away and served as were the other dishes. The second fish was left table side for about 10 minutes with no waiter insight to serve it. That was a bit annoying.
Will give the place another try. Hopefully their service will improve.
I had a very enjoyable dinner at Sayola. The portions are quite large and tasty. The restaurant itself is very well decorated. However, do not let the wine bottle display or the wine bottle chandeliers fool you, it is a BYO so do not forget to bring a bottle if you'd like to have a drink with your meal.
Living in a town with so many good restaurants, it’s hard to choose where to go. But now that we’ve been to Sayola, this will always be our ‘go to’ for a night out or special occasion. Better than just good, the food selection and quality, service, and ambience was spectacular. Thoroughly enjoyable evening and can’t wait to come back for music with Paul Baccash at their Sunday brunch!
Excellent food. The service excellent.
Don't be discouraged by parking. Parking is available at the hotel next door.
We had an 8PM reservation and they seated us at that time. Beautifully decorated and large windows. Very nice ambiance. Will definitely go back. Food was excellent. A little pricey, but for the quality about right.
Service was fair. They didn’t clear plates for quite a long time.
Food took a long time to come out.
Decor was very nice; upscale; not look most dives in montclair.
Food was good but not great for the high prices.
Great dining experience! The food was great, service was fantastic and décor amazing. Can't wait to go back again.
We, my wife and I, absolutely love this place! The service is beyond exceptional! The food is outstanding and the portions are large enough so you can enjoy soMe the next day! 😊
This place was great. We made a reservation for 10 on a busy Saturday night as we walked to the restaurant. They not only had our table set before we arrived, but it looked like they opened an additional room for us, which was soon filled to capacity. Food and service were outstanding and can't wait to go back.
The food was amazing and the ambience was excellent. We loved this place and will be back!!
Not as good as Sayola in Tenafly.
What adds to the great food is the warmth and welcoming staff.
How special is it when the staff knows your names and greets you personally?
Two thumbs up!
Beautiful space but the menu left me uninspired. It’s wasn’t very ‘Spanish’ and the prices were over the top. Mains were $40 -$50 range. I got the chicken and it was no better than diner food. Sauce was over thickened with corn starch so it was gummy. We won’t be back.
The service is superb! Furthermore, second visit was just as great and they remembered us.
Food is superior!
The food is amazing as always, the ambiance is great and the team is professional, attentive and very friendly. We absolutely love Sayola for small and large gatherings.
