There are not enough words to rave about our experience. This is my new go to spot!
Love this place! Such a great restaurant to have a date! Reasonably priced for DELICIOUS food! The service is always outstanding!
The staff is extremely friendly and the food is perfection!! Fresh, healthy, variety of items. The desserts are heavenly!! I would definitely eat here again!
Food was excellent. It was my wife's birthday so a song would have been nice along with the candle in the desert but I guess you can't get that in every restaurant.
I can't believe it took us this long to get to Vanillamore after having lived in Montclair for a few months now! We were looking for a restaurant where we could get some small plates and share them and we were really happy with our experience. The lamb ribs, cheese plate, and sliders were all delicious, and we will definitely be coming back soon to try dessert, but we were too full during this visit. Our server was friendly and helpful. This is a minor thing but I did appreciate that when I called to confirm our reservation, the person I spoke to asked about allergies, special occasions, and whether or not we were going to a show afterwards. I appreciate how well they are trying to treat their customers.
Service was very good, atmosphere is comfortable, food was good, but dessert did not live up to expectation. I also found the price too expensive for the value. I hope this place grows and continues to exceed because I feel it has a lot of potential. I just would not return in the immediate future unless in the area.
They kept wanting to take our plates, we were still eating!? Finally someone came by and took one of my plates (I was still dipping my food in the dip on that plate), my mouth was full and couldn’t speak to stop her. Why are they taking any plates if someone in the party is still eating? It is not polite to remove plates if people are still eating. It was frustrating.
Everything was awesome! Service was top notch. Food was delicious. Ambiance was trendy without being obnoxious. We're definitely coming back!
The menu is limited but sufficient. The food was good and made up for the relatively slow service. This restaurant is certainly one of the few unique standouts in Montclair today.
The food is interesting and the combination of flavors are outstanding!
Vanillamore is a great spot to reconnect with friends and enjoy some excellent food.
We shared an appetizer and 3 small plates. Service was terrific and food was exactly what three ladies looking for a late light lunch were seeking. Would like to come back to try some heartier fare and those delicious sounding desserts!
Food is always great as is the atmosphere. There’s no place like this anywhere.
Food was good, portion sizes just right. My wife and I visited for the first time and thought it was interesting, we had several small plates, so we could taste a variety of offerings.
Unfortunately we could not stay for dessert, what they are known for.
If in the area again we will try it again.
Came in for dessert. Never disappoints.
Absolutely love Vanillamore! Such an inviting place to dine. The food is delicious from beginning to end and the service is terrific. It is a happy place and I love going there!
Small cute cafe/bakery specializing in custom gourmet creations. Plan on staying awhile, enjoying dainty samples in a variety of flavors layered on different textures. Reservations definitely recommended! Parking can be a challenge-(leave time to find a space and walk). Server was enthusiastic and explained each offering in detail. A delightful brunch, then dessert!
I would go back. Small plates very good. We had the berata and the arugula salad and the pork belly. Had the vanilla more dessert. Thought it was great. A little pricey.
Met my cousin here for brunch and it was SO good! We shared two different types of toasts and got the Milk and Cookies after. Everything was delicious, the service was great and the ambiance was lovely. We will be back!
This was our second visit to Vanillamore and we were just as delighted with the meal this time as we were the first time. Service is friendly and efficient. All of the food from appetizers to small plates to desserts was well prepared, tasty, and beautifully presented. We had a wonderful meal and highly recommend Vanillamore.
Wait staff was so pleasant! Will definitely be coming back :)
We go to Vanillamore several times a month. It's been the same staff for ages so clearly they are well-treated. They are also quite friendly but can be hard to find. The food is excellent and unique, high-quality. Highly recommend.
Great food! Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and nice!
Great place for catching up with friends
Every single bite of food was delicious - from savory to sweet. Definitely make reservations. Wait staff were nice but understaffed and the whole meal took over two hours, so just be prepared. Worth it!
Food is amazing. Owners always on site and go the extra mile (sent us extra appetizers due to a delay in main course!). A little loud but food creativity and taste made up for it. Great for kids too!
This was our 3rd time back and not disappointed at all. Short Ribs excellent! Turkey meatballs delicious.
Make sure you leave room for incrediable desserts.
Cute small cafe. Portions are all tapas size and it is fun to try a few dishes and share. It can be a bit costly.
Great selection of interesting small plates, outstanding desserts!
Lively atmosphere. The varied small plates were delicious and creatively presented. Service was attentive
Long time friends getting together.
I’ve been here before but apparently on Tuesdays they aren’t up to speed by lunch time. They didn’t have what I initially ordered and then what I ordered was just ok. The server was excellent but she couldn't overcome the kitchens unpreparedness.
A truly wonderful experience. Interesting, creative offerings with amazing dessert options. Sharing is encouraged. I love the open kitchen and dining room layout. It’s evident a lot of thought and detail went into every aspect of the dining experience. Great knowledgeable wait staff. It’s BYOB. Prices were quite reasonable. I can’t recommend highly enough.
Great food and great service. Only problem: I order too much food!
Always great food from appetizer to dessert.
Everything was delicious!
Excellent service, our server went above and beyond. Very accommodating regarding food substitutions. All of us enjoyed our food, we will definitely go back.
Vanillamore is an absolute gem - a culinary experience paralleled only by its exquisite service.
We had an issue with one of the dishes and wrote it on the comment card. The manager called us before we even got home to find out more about the issue and said she would get back to us the next day with an answer and she did. Never experienced customer service like that. We will be back because we know they truly want to deliver a perfect dining experience and if you don't think so, they want to make it right. That's very rare these days!
