    We had a very nice evening recently, have recommended it to some friends since and will put Etsy Street back in rotation again. Our first two dining experiences at Etsy Street (2 and 3 years ago) were good but unbalanced. Either the entree was a dud or the appetizer was a dud. But not this time. Most everything really came together. Service was excellent, and the remodel they did a few years ago still looks great. I'd give it 3 stars out of 4 for NJ dining (it could get a 4 with some changes) and 1 star out of 4 relative to NYC dining (based on experience with NYTimes rated restaurants)

    We took a local client to dinner and Esty didn't disappoint. Great food, service, wine list and fantastic dessert. The owner came to our table to check on our experience and had a great conversation about the history of the restaurant and the development of some of the dishes. Esty is on the expensive side but very much worth the cost. Would be a great romantic date place, but could be uncomfortable for co-workers unless in a group.

    I have been in the mood for beef wellington for a long time and my favorite French restaurant in Martha's vineyard was never able to accommodate my request, so I was so glad when Kim, Steve and their chef were willing to accommodate my request and honor my 64th birthday! Thank you again so much and it was well worth waiting for!

    My boss took me to Esty Street to celebrate Professional Executive Administrative Assistant's Day. We had a nice quiet table in the corner and were able to speak freely with no distractions. The ambionce was nice, the food was delicious and it was definitely upscale by the overall presentation of the décor, service and knowledge of our waiter. I would absolutely go back there again.

    The food was excellent for vegetarian and fish selections (diners' choice). The zucchini blossoms, pasta, sea bass, and cheesecake were uniformly excellent. After a few years of not being impressed at Esty's, this was a great dinner. The room seemed a little musty, otherwise the room looks good and the bar is grand. Good wine and cocktails available.

    We were celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary on Saturday at Esty Street...WOW! From the hand-roasted mixed nuts at the bar to the spectacularly personalized 'happy anniversary' dessert, our dining experience at Esty Street was outstanding. The service and food were some of the best we've ever had. The Chilean sea bass and shrimp risotto were beyond belief. Thanks to Kim C. and his outstanding staff for an evening to remember. We'll be sure to come back with family and friends in the area when we visit next. And I'm sure that they will tell local friends about this gem of a restaurant!

    My husband and I used to frequent this restaurant and really loved it. We went back after not dining there for a while for our anniversary last night. The table we were seated at left much to be desired as we were jammed so tight next to others. It was less than romantic and special as it felt like we were packed into this small area. The good was almost all fried and when we looked around it seemed like everyone else had heavily fried foods as well. Sad considering I had a salad. We appreciated the fruit that was comped for our anniversary but will not return again. It just wasn't the esty st we used to love. My husband also has a very strong stomach and to top off the night he was I'll for the evening after his meal!

    Just celebrated my inlaws 52nd anniversary here with a brunch. They provided a captains chair for my father-in-law to make sure that he was comfortable as he now uses a walker and needed the extra support. The service was very good and they especially took care of the anniversary couple. Highly recommended.

    We have been to Esty a few times and always thought the food was good. others have commented on the bad service but I was not deterred. Well, they were right. Everything took forever, or just didn't come. No water, 45 mins until we got a menu, no bread, no drinks. Our friend walked up to the front and complained to the owner, Kim and manager and that yielded us an abrupt visit by the waiter who greeted us with "what do you want to order". The food was average at a pretty hefty price. The most disappointing aspect was that neither Kim or the manager came over. I can almost expect it from your young inexperienced staff, but shame on you. anyway that was my last time.....

My water glass was never less than half empty. Even though everthing was amazing, the food, by far, was the Star!!! I was so impressed with the menu and the delivery of the final product, that I will be going back many times in the future. I highly suggest Esty Street for your next Bergen County fine dinning experience.
