"After reading a lot of good things about Halcyon we finally decided to dine there. The only thing I can say is they are living on their reputation. The baked clams were very small and had very little taste. My wife had the pork chop. Where it was a decent size, the taste was average at best. There are other places in Montclair that have much better tasting pork chops. I had the grilled scallops and they were just plain, with again, very little taste.
When the waitress asked how our dinner was, we told her our feelings. She said Oh, OK and walked away.
We ordered a glass of wine each and when the bill came, we were charged for a carafe each. The waitress said "I just assumed that was what you wanted" and did proceed the change the bill. My question is, Why did she assume we wanted the more expensive carafe? We asked for a manager, and a young lady came over. After we told her about our experience, she just replied, "Everyone's taste buds are different." She then proceeded to defend the food and staff and said they had a great reputation.
I don't usually write reviews, but between the food and the attitude of the staff I had to pass this along. We will not be dining at Halcyon again.... There are many finer restaurants in Montclair, with better food and a much nicer staff.

"Ambience here is awesome. Food is a bit lacking in taste, and pricy. Crab cakes - $19?, romaine salad - $15? Although both were good, but not great. And not much selection at dessert time..next time I'll pass.."

"This was our second visit to Halcyon. I had read mixed reviews as to service. While the food is outstanding, the service is abysmal. We waited over 35 minutes for salads and apps. Our waiter never came to ask if we wanted a second round of drinks. When my husband approached the front desk, his request for attention was acknowledged but we still waited another 10 minutes for drinks. Our entrees arrived one hour and 20 minutes after we had been seated. The maitre d never appeared to offer an apology for the lack of service or a comp of any sort. We left sorely disappointed."

"The first time I went was for my daughter's b'day and the foods was spectacular. I ordered a tuna tartar special that was amazing! My daughter had the sea bass special which sat in a tangy sauce that was perfect for the mild fish, her dad had the cod with butter beans... paired perfectly. The drinks were great although a little pricey for a neighborhood restaurant. The experience left me wanting to go back and I did. Two weeks later it was a completely different experience. My boyfriend ordered the risotto with seafood in a tomato sauce...the risotto was undercooked, hard in the center. I had the salmon on top of a soggy mushroom and leek? mixture. It was bland and unmemorable. The most disappointing thing though was that I mentioned the risotto was undercooked just so that the cook would be aware for the next customer, and although we had no intention of returning the plate for it to be fixed...my boyfriend has a thing he never returns food to the kitchen, the waitress didn't offer a complimentary drink or dessert. At $201.00 for dinner for two, the gesture would have been greatly appreciated. And although the first night was great, a restaurant needs to be consistent to be considered good+ in my opinion."

"Halcyon is wonderful in all respects except for the noise level. We prefer an atmosphere where one can see and talk. Food & service cannot be beat, anywhere. The noise level will drive anyone like me off the wall. You just have to yell or have your mouth very close to another's ear to be heard. To me this is absolutely crazy. Also the lighting was so bad the waiter had to use our table light to read his own version of the menu - even then he had to show it to us to communicate! Food in this place beats everything else in Montclair. service was always there and did not have to be called but was not overbearing. We had great conversation, but it was hard. Do not go here for a romantic evening or for a quiet conversation. In all other respects, definitely do go! Aslo price was higher than expected."
