I love Orbis. The owner Nancy is such a great person also. She interacts with the customers and makes sure everyone is well taken care of. The menu is really creative and unique. The organic chicken and the grilled pork tenderloin are both outstanding. Give Orbis a try, you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Creative menu

Cons: Not a lot of parking

My husband and I really enjoy this cozy restaurant in Upper Montclair. It's perfect for a romantic dinner out without the kids. The chef/owner is friendly and obviously very talented because we have enjoyed everything we've ordered. I believe she was trained in Europe and has an excellent menu...something for everyone.
The prices are decent to Montclair and I do believe it is a BYO...

We were looking forward to a meal in Montclair (to where my partner and I recently moved) at an "alternative to New York City." My partner had ordered an appetizer that was no longer available; the waitress did not inform us when reviewing the specials. Our meals had been delayed (8:30 reservation, we received entries at 9:55). They apologized to us but the experience was miserable. Our appetizers were fair (closer to bland). The filet mignon special was okay (not great) served with string beans and mashed potatoes that were also quite boring. The atmosphere was loud and not very romantic (not the restaurant's fault - we had assumed a more romantic/sophisticated atmosphere). By dessert time, we decided to skip and pick up ice cream at a nearby parlor. Regarding "New York City alternatives," restaurants should realize they have one chance to impress. I wouldn't recommend and wouldn't go back.

Wonderful food, attentive service, excellent choice of specials and desserts to die for.

The quail appetiser was perfect in every way, except that the vinaigrette lacked vinegar. The whole bird was cooked to perfection and has been served with either a blue or Goat's cheese accompaniment.

The main courses are generously proportioned, with the breast of duck my personal favourite.

The setting is minimalist and the high ceiling creates an acoustic, which can be loud at weekends. But who cares since you should only go to Orbis if you want a fun atmosphere balanced by serious food.

Now I shall struggle to get a reservation at short notice but it's all in a good cause!
