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.

    Went for pregameing thanksgiving eve. The food was great but they were understaffed so the service was a little slower than usual. The artisanal pizza and cauliflower fries are great appetizers to share. I will be back soon

  • Waitress was great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    At the start, the hostess made it hard for us to like the restaurant. We had a reservation for 7:15pm. We got the 20 minutes early. She said our table would be ready in five minutes but we still were not seated 20 minutes later. I understand that we had a reservation and got there early but do not tell us five minutes when it takes 20 minutes. And they sat 3 other parties of 4 before us. When we went up to her, she asked "who are you again?" She forgot about us. Not a good start to the night. It seems like she sat us at a table they were not planning on using. Who was the savior of the night??? THE WAITRESS!!! She was so polite and energetic. She apologized for the wait and got us a round of drinks on her. The food was very good. Her and the food is the reason why we will go back. Maybe we just caught the hostess on a bad night but the waitress saved our night. I will be going back and asking to sit in the waitresses section.

    I was fortunate enough to be the one to make brunch reservations with a group of friends. I chose Bibiz because I've enjoyed lunch there at another time. I wasn't disappointed. The prize fixe brunch menu offered enough options to enjoy either breakfast or luncheon fare. I chose the Harvest salad & organic omelette. Both were fresh, beautifully prepared and delicious! The croissants and brunch pastries were included and a real plus for our palate. Mimosas and coffee were not included but that's not surprising for the $20 price. The coffee was served with fresh whipped cream, lump sugar and cocoa. It's these lovely details that sets Bibiz apart from other restaurants. Our server was professional, accommodating and non intrusive.

    Food was delicious and fresh from the bread to the vegetables and main course including desert and coffee. We had to ask for bread about 20 minutes after being seated. The house wine was a good quality. The noise level was unbearable. Patrons tended to be the under 30 crowd. The only way to hear each other at the table was to shout. If you come as a group ok but do not expect a quiet dinner with your spouse or significant other. There is no way you can hear each other; you can only hear everyone else's conversation at a high decibel level. Noise level was frenetic!

    Bibi'z has yet to disappoint! The menu starts with "nibbles," included the greatest olive tapenade, hummus, and spinach artichoke dip I've ever had-- it's worth coming just for the apps! Their entrees are wonderful (I've had the scallops with cheesy polenta and mushrooms as well as the lamb with rosemary jus), and the wine and cocktail list covers all of your bases (the Grapefruit martini is A+).

    We were a party of 5, first timers and shared some flatbreads for appetizers which were really good. The risotto was creamy and the seared tuna was delicious. My friends had salads, linguini and ravioli and thought the food was really good. Good wine list, friendly service. Definitely coming back.

    We share oysters and the cauli fries, both we exceptional. The sea scallops with polenta was amazing. The scallops has a perfect crust and tender. Our waitress must have been new as she was not that familiar with the drink or dinner menu. When I asked how the Fig Moscow Mule was, she said it good, but has a lot of pumpkin in it... no pumpkin in it, but it was a great drink!

    Bibiz's not only met but exceeded all of our expectations. Every dish at our table was beyond delicious- starting from the cocktails to the fried calamari and the house made chips and of course our entrees. I had the chicken kebab which was so delicious, I rarely order chicken when going out but the garlic dipping sauce was calling to me and it was SO worth it! Our table also had two orders of skirt steak (each cooked at a different temperature and each cooked to perfection) and a scallop dish and everyone cleaned their plates. Service was very good, our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing and made excellent drink and food recommendations. Looking forward to going back in the near future!

    Service was top notch, as was the food. Great variety but still small enough that everything is done VERY well. I believe the specials should be presented with the prices, but not so on this visit. We ordered off the menu so it was a moot point.

    I took a chance to try Bibi'z since it was restaurant week. I was not disappointed at all; matter of fact, I thoroughly enjoyed the food. I ordered the short rib with mash potato and vegetables. The short rib melted in my mouth and the sauce brought out the favor of the meat. The mash potato was freshly made not that powdery fake potato mix. Even the vegetables were cooked perfectly. My friend ordered the spicy pasta and it was equally cooked well. The mini tiramisu was to die for. It was creamy and light. My friend and I would definitely return for many visit.

    We had a 1pm reservation. 3 of the 5 people were driving from the city in one car. They became hopelessly lost and didn't arrive until 3:15 which is after Brunch ends. We were served in the Dining Room and allowed to order from the Brunch menu. This is a meeting of friends who worked together and meet from time to time. I was very happy that we were treated so well in the face of an unusual situation.

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    The cocktails were good, but the food was just ok for the high prices. My friend"s shrimp was overcooked, and my tilapia had a sauce that tasted like a busy mom threw together leftovers to make it. Being a foodie and seeing the good review in the 201 Magazine, I was disappointed. The waiter wasn't very attentive, and we had to wait a long time for our check.

    To anyone who cares about food and the hearts of those who prepare it for you, this is the place to try. We came with 13 family members with less than 24 hr notice and the staff went above ans beyond to make a memorable evening. Everyone felt the food was fabulous, fresh, interesting and perfectly prepared. The emphasis on local food prepared seasonally fresh was evident ans greatly appreciated. The staff was first class, gracious, and warm: we cannot compliment them enough. Thank you, Bibi'z for all you did to make a family gathering truly special. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    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.

    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.
