Looking to host an evening Group dinner for 40 people. Any good experiences? How about toast in Montclair?

  1. Have to say that I haven't heard great things about Toast (at least, not from anyone whose palate I trust)...

    Without knowing what kind of $$ you want to spend, if this is a business or celebratory meal, or what kind of food you prefer, here are a few suggestions:

    -Blackthorn Pub in Kenilworth
    -GrilleStone in Scotch Plains
    -Adega Grill in the Ironbound has a GREAT back room and terrific pricing for group dinners

    More info will enable us to give you better ideas...!

    1. re: Curlz

      Thanks very much. This is a dinner for the out of town folks coming in for an engagement party. So something celebratory and nice. Not sure of a per head price but probably a restaurant that has $15 to $30 entrees on a regular menu. I appreciate it.

    2. Uproot.....The food is great and the atmosphere is stunning. I would reccomend Uproot 100% Delicous food.

      1. Hopefully I'm not too late.. I just went to Salute in Montclair, on Glen Ridge Ave. I must say I was truely impressed, I don't usually do Italian food since most Italian restaurants in the area aren't true Italian. But they did a fabulous job, we were a large group and ordered a lot of food, everything was delicious! There's also Rob's Bistro in Madison, which is a go to restaurant for me since I live in Madison but I don't think they have a private room. I think Uproot may be a little out of the price range from what I can remember from when I went.

        1. You might also call Ah' Pizz in Montclair...casual, but excellent authentic Neopolitan pizzas and they recently expanded, so now they have pastas and more--and it's a BYO, which will also help keep the price down!

          I'm also hearing good things about Sofra, which is a new Turkish restaurant on Valley Rd in Montclair.
