"The food is always delicious and they have good variety so if you don't know what you want they have something for everyone. I usually get the short ribs but they were all out so I tried the red snapper and loved it. Looking forward to dining here again."

"Bistro 18 still manages to deliver great food. Everything is fresh and well made. Service is professional and the overall experience still makes this place a must for a first timer and an easy return as in our case. I have been there several times over the last few years and never leave disappointed. Montclair can eat restaurants up and spit them out. It's not an easy place to survive. Bistro 18 is still doing it!"

"Great to have a specially designated parking area for this restaurant on weekends in a town that has a scarcity of parking. Ambiance is also a plus. However, I think the owner should think about expanding his menu. It's a tad limited and the prices are high as well."

"We were sat by the kitchen for a 9:00 reservation on NYE. Very loud, non stop foot traffic, and very hot. Difficult to have a private conversation with so much disturbance. Looking around there were plenty of open tables that would have made our experience much more enjoyable. Food and menu were high quality."

"We had a delicious meal on Christmas Eve and the service was really friendly and attentive. The Mushroom Risotto was creamy and delicious. The Sesame Crusted Wild Alaska Salmon was a stand out. Rack of Lamb was tender and so flavorful and the Rib Eye Steak was so good and huge."

"Bistro 18 has great ambiance and the staff makes you feel at home. It's main dining room is a small space but this adds to the intimacy. Starched white tablecloths and napkins add elegance and dim lighting makes it cozy. You may choose to eat in the breezeway and watch the going on outside. Food is reliable: good soups, pasta, fish. The best comes at the end when you didn't order desserts but get treated to a plate of delicious almond biscotti."

"Waiters were very formal and took good care of us! The Bosc pear salad was delish and the braised short ribs were so tender! Cannoli was outstanding."

"Our party of four had an enjoyable evening at Bistro 18 on a recent Saturday night. All of the entrees were great! We had the duck breast, red snapper and swordfish. The service was uneven and we needed to ask for another water bottle a few times. The major disappointment was in receiving the check. It was a jumbled ineligible mess and we wondered how we were supposed to read it. The tab seemed a bit high so we pulled out a phone and began adding up all the charges. We discovered that we had been charged for two extra entrees which was a $58 overcharge. We called over the waiter who apologized and deducted the charge. I think we were all a bit shaken up by this mistake and I would like to see the restaurant issue printed invoices."
