Wonderful presentation and service! We went at 8:30 on a Saturday night and there were THREE people in the restaurant! Wondering if this place will even be here by the time this is published! They really serve food in an unusual and interesting manner. Unfortunately,...More

We were en route to see Aziz Ansari perform at the Wellmont in Montclair and Adara was our pre-show dinner stop off. The staff at Adara was simply the most accommodating to our compressed schedules for that night while serving up plate after plate of...More

New American cusine meets molecular gastronomy at Adara. Interesting combinations of flavors, textures, aromas made for an enjoyable meal. Not too over the top on the molecular stuff. Some new techniques were used, but the food was more about creative expression and different takes on...More
