A word from Bibi'z Restaurant & Lounge
In the quaint town of Westwood, NJ, Bibi'z serves up Westwood's exciting dishes and a unique ambiance. At Bibi'z, every dish is created using only the freshest, finest ingredients. We use NJ, NY or PA organic farms for produce, poultry and dairy. We will only serve wild caught fresh fish, since farm raised has been found to have many toxins. Our meats are the choicest cuts of grass fed Black Angus. And our global cuisine is designed to create a healthier way to feed our body and soul.

It would be our pleasure to pair your meal with an eclectic wine or recommend a classic or signature martini, single malt scotch, single barrel bourbon, cordial or beer.

We look forward to serving you a delightful meal in our exciting addition to Bergen County's vibrant restaurant scene.

    I came here with a group of my friends. The outside seating was perfect for our group. We shared peach sangrias which were refreshing and delicious. The specialty martinis were great too. We loved the fried cauliflower and spinach dip apps. I have the mushroom pizza which has never disappointed. A couple of friends had the shrimp risotto special which was awesome. We also loved the nibbles dessert. It was a perfect way to end our meal. Will definitely return again.

    Wow! Just finished a wonderful meal ai bibi's ! Swanky, trendy decor is matched a terrific menu, well prepared food and excellent service! Portions are huge! Four of us shared sesame crusted tuna and calamari with 2 sauces- delicious. Mains included a top flight skirt steak, grilled mahi mahi, and wonderful scallops with Brussel sprouts and tasty polenta. All fabulous! And 2 great desserts of flour less chocolate cake and a tasty apple tartlet. Well priced wine list too- we downed a crisp Gruner Veltiner ( on Wednesday nights bottles are 25 per cent discounted) Free parking without the hassle of driving to NYC made an evening at Bibi's even more special! We will return!

    We ducked in here for a quick Friday evening and found even at around 7pm, there was no wait and incredibly attentive service. The menu was fairly but not extraordinarily packed, but our server recommended the mushroom pizza appetizer before we tucked into lamb and chicken, respectively. The food was well prepared and plated, came out with not all that long of a wait, and we weren't rushed at all by anyone. I'd absolutely go back again, even if I just ordered the chicken florentine next time.

    We have been to Bibi'z several times, and it never disappoints. The food is great, the service is efficient. Out of all times we went, only once there was a mix-up with drinks (as in we ordered virgin, but were charged for non-virgin, for 2 out of 3 drinks). Overall, great place to have nice romantic dinner, as well as a bigger party. The scallops are definite favorite as well as artisanal pies.

    Finding restaurants that serve gluten-free food, and quality gluten-free food at that, is not easy. However, Bibi'z gluten-free menu items impressed me. I am so glad I found this treasure, and I highly recommend the restaurant to everyone, not just celiacs or those who are gluten sensitive.

    Have been to Bibi's numerous times. This time it seems portions were small and food was not up to par. The salad that normally has fresh mint (one of the reaasons I love it) didn't have mint. When I told waitress she brought me some dried mint to put on it. Not at all the same thing.

    we were 6 people, somehow the server only put in 4 main dishes. The manager took 20 min. to appear at our table after my husband went to tell him that all 6 of us hadn't received our ordered main disches, and then didn't apoligize but blamed it on the kitchen and server. It took another 15 to 20 minutes for him to appear and tell us that he was taking the bottle of wine that 4 of the 6 dinners ordered off the bill. In all it was a VERY disappointing evening. The manager should have come to the table sooner and I feel taken off the two dinners that weren't seved together with the other 4.

    What a shame. The food is really good here and even has a healthy slant that is so hard to find. However, the service is horrible. It started when we asked for a different table and was told it was reserved. We had a reservation too and it didn't really make any sense. After that, we met our server who was clearly overwhelmed and not warm and friendly at all. She tried to rush us even though the restaurant started emptying shortly after we sat down at 7:45. The food was good and I think I would go back for that but I have heard too consistently about the service being bad. It's time to address this!

    I went with a long time friend for brunch. Sunday brunch menu was very creative with nice choices. The food was well prepared and delicious. Service however, left a lot to be desired. Had to ask the hostess to please bring us some water after being seated for at least 10 minutes. Thankfully hostess just happened to walk by. Ordered drinks after the waitress finally came over. First course delivered fine and was perfect. Second course came, and we had no silverware remaining, and no time to say anything to the waiter. After a while when no one was in sight, I got up and took utensils off another table. We ordered coffee then our check came - no offer to order dessert. Would I try Bibi'z again - yes but not for brunch.

    After reading other reviews, I was excited to eat here to celebrate a belated Valentine's Day. From reviewing pictures of others' dining experience I thought this would be a great find. Typically, my wife and I for Valentine's Day go to the Melting Pot in Westwood, but reservations were full. Bibi's had a Valentine's Day dinner package which we ordered. The steak was delicious and cooked right. However, the broccoli and potatoes were still served undone. The calamari was great along with their dipping sauce. The drinks were weak, they ran out of the blood mary mix so we couldn't order what we really wanted. The champaign was flat and tasteless. Considering what we paid, it was overpriced. The restaurant's temperature was cold and drafty.

    We eat here about once every two months or so. The food is always pretty good with a nice eclectic menu. Unfortunately the service on a recent busy Saturday night was noticeably slow. The waitress apologized and noted the kitchen was backed up as the place was nearly full. The good news is that the appetizers did come out quickly so, while we waited a long time for entree's, we weren't starving. Once delivered, the food was hot and flavorful. I had the duck, which was nice and crispy on the outside while moist on the inside. This is the first time we've had any issues with service here so willing to give them a pass. will visit again.

    We sat at the bar, it was nice. Comfortable, good drinks, etc. Went to our table and after that it all went downhill. Ordered an appetizer and salad to be brought as main dish. Appetizer came first. We waited over an hour for our main course. Waiter came over and apologized, but no manager or owner even came by to say "drinks are on us, we apologize" etc. Over an hour later we asked for the check. That's when they brought the dinner. We left and paid for our one appetizer and drink. So disappointed, what could've been a great meal was just horrible. The only good think about it was the grapefruit martini. Owners need to either hire more staff or do something, other reviews seem to state the same on Yelp and on here. We won't be back.

    The food was good. I wanted Makers Mark for a cocktail, and was disappointed that they did not have it (it's a popular bourbon that a well stocked bar should have). Felt rushed throughout the entire time that we were there. We had one good knowledgeable waiter and countless severs & bussers . As soon as you put down your utensil they asked if you were done. As soon as the dish was removed the next dish was placed there by another server. As the entrée was removed we asked that they take their time with serving the desert. Surprise! They brought it out immediately. The overall dinning experience was not relaxing and enjoyable.

  • Burnt & Not Concerned
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/30/2014
    It was restaurant week. They did not have a luncheon restaurant week special. The special turned out to be confusing since a good size salad was given, but then an equally sized salad accompanied the quiche. Too many greens! Topper was the quiche. We all (3) had the lunch special quiche, which the waitress said was the same as the nornal lunch menu quiche. Duh! All were burned, not just well done. When the waitress asked how the quiche was, the two women, being overly polite I guess, said "fine". I said my quiche was burned, which it was. My observation didn't seem to bother the waitress. Really, it seemed as if they had quiche leftover from the day before, and then over-heated it. Bye, bye, Bibi'z. Bib'z is off my list.
