"We visited Mompou Tapas on a whim prior to attending a concert at the Prudential Center. Our waiter was very helpful, recommending how many Tapas orders we should order for our group of 4. We settled on ordering 6 plates.
We sat downstairs that night. I think our group appreciated not sitting in the main dining room which seemed much louder. The drinks were outstanding. My wife and I ordered the Fresh Ginger Smash while our friends ordered Cosmos. The drinks were so good we had to order a second round.
The food came in good time, not too fast to feel rushed and not too long to make us feel we might miss our show. We especially enjoyed the ham croquets, dates wrapped in bacon, and the chorizo.
The recommended deserts were the Tres leche cake and the coconut flan. Both were outstanding.
We look forward to our next visit to Mompou Tapas."

"The food is good but the service should be improved. We ordered tapas, the salmon dish and the tuna tartar salad. What I did not like about this restaurant (and they do this all the time) is that as soon as someone clears a table, they spray windex to clean. The smell is so strong and unpleasant that it overtakes the savory food scents. Its bad for people with allergies and sensitivities--they should think about using non-irritating sprays. This killed my dinner experience."

"We went to Mompou on Valentine's Day for dinner. It was not crowded. That may have been because it was bitterly cold outside and Mompou is usually closed on Sundays.
We were seated promptly, had great food and drinks and the service was good. We didn't get one item we ordered, but we were not charged for it, so no harm done. English is probably not the first language of the wait staff and we know almost no Spanish, so the glitch could have been a language problem.
The only other difficult part of the evening was parking. There were no spaces to be found within a block of Mompou, so we had to walk quite far to the restaurant and back.
We visited because we were flying out of Newark Liberty Airport early the next morning and we were staying overnight nearby. I would definitely recommend Mompou. We hope to visit again when we are in the area. It is very convenient to NJPAC, Prudential Center, Newark Rail Station, etc."

"We had a very good dinner last Saturday night though we were disappointed to find out that only a special Valentine's Day menu was offered, not the much more extensive menu seen on the web site. I wish they'd have mentioned it on the site. Food was prepared well, served hot, and enjoyable. I was surprised to see there was an automatic 20% tip added to the bill - no mention of that on the menu and quite unusual for a party of only two people. I may very well have left that amount but resent the restaurant making that choice for me, especially with no notification. If we do return I'd want to clarify that in advance."

"After much difficulty making reservations, we got to the restaurant only to find that they put us in the dark basement and a folding table and folding chairs would be where they were seating us. Clearly this restaurant doesn't care about its customers and has very low standards for itself. It was the night before Valentine's Day and they had a terrible abbreviated menu with very little to chose from. Chicken meatballs? Croquettas de bacalao (cod)? No empanadas? No jamon and queso dish? Terrible menu to chose from. No need for us to ever go back again."

"We choose Mompou because it appeared to have better vegetarian options than other tapas or Portuguese restaurants in the area, and it did not disappoint. Tapas were tasty and reasonably priced and the sangria was excellent as well."

"I've been going to Mompou for years and it never lets me down. First, the place looks great- always clean with excellent lighting and decor. Second, the service is generally very good- several of the employees have been there a long time, and are very friendly. And third- THE FOOD. It's tapas, but not exactly like you've had before. Sure, they do some staples, but they mix in some Basque dishes that are just delicious. Everything is shareable and the presentation is great. Oh, and the drinks are amazing- great wine, cocktail, and beer list."

"This place was amazing. I was meeting my cousin that I hasn't seen it months. The restaurant was small and noise level was great to hold a conversion. We didn't know what to order so the waitress suggested everything from the tapas, salad and entrée and of it was amazing. Well be recommending this restaurant to everyone I can and will be going back for sure."

"I brought my boyfriend here on a Friday night because I enjoyed the food once before. The food was good (I only order the entrees because the tapas are pretty expensive) but the noise level was ridiculous. We were seated next to a large group of young ladies (and one guy) with the most high pitched voices who were yelling at each other across the table. The restaurant is very small and it would have been nice to see an employee ask them to keep down the volume because other couples and small groups were trying to dine as well. It was clear the waiter was just trying to make a good gratuity because everyone knew this group was obnoxious."

"Went with a friend prior to a show at the nearby Performing Arts Center. My friend wanted tapas and Mompu was included in research lists. What the lists didn't point out was the beauty of their outdoor backroom. It was a wonderful and tranquil setting along with good food choices that combined for a wonderful mood setting prior to a nice show..."

"This is a gem on Ferry Street in the heart of Ironbound of Newark. Great tapas, wonderful inexpensive wine and outstanding and attentive service by Leo. The place has a NY trendy look and feel with black tin ceilings and brick walls. Popping on weekends."
