We frequently dine in Montclair but up until tonight, have never tried Aozora. I am not a fan of sushi, so I never considered dining here. Another couple made the reservation and told us that besides the sushi menu, the menu additionally offers European cuisine as well. This is a great option for people to take advantage of both and mix and match their selections. Aozora is a byob. We began by sharing mussels in a dejonaise broth. The portion was hugh and delicious. We also shared an equally delicious udon noodles dish. One person ordered the tuna madness entree from the sushi menu , while the rest of us ordered from the European menu. We chose the chilean sea bass, shrimp over risotto and the scallops over barley risotto. All were perfectly done. Desserts were the bread pudding and chocolate lava cake. The dinner was great and pleases the sushi eater as well as those who prefer their food cooked. We all recommend Aozora as a great dining choice.

Pleaseant service , good menu selection and good food. Noise level is acceptable on a Saturday night and do not have to shout to be heard

We were gladly surprised about the quality of the roll and didn't expect the main course (salmon teriyaki) to be even better. Also the cheesecake white chocolate was great. Highly recommended.

Ran in 2 hours before a concert in Montclair with the girls. Hostess was extremely rude kept rushing us to sit, to eat and to quiet down because she was expecting a big party. Party never showed up. I felt like I was sitting at the kiddie table at angry Alice's house! Food and service was great. They need to stick her in the back of the house. We ordered spicy miso soup, out of control rolls, twister rolls And valentines. It's BYOB. Questionable whether or not I will go again.

Have never been disappointed with the high quality, fresh fish and ingredients executed to perfection at Aozora. It is truly an artful presentation and delicious too! Very generous sized as well.
