- Just Perfect!Kathid23VIPDined on 11/8/2014Esty Street is just fabulous on all levels. Service by the wonderful, friendly and handsome servers is superb. Food is creative, seasonal and delicious. Owners welcome you and make you feel special!Special Features:
- premierDined on 11/8/2014The food was excellent! There was an extensive wine list! Loved my chocolate martini!Special Features:
- judyDined on 10/27/2014This is a special restaurant, but last Monday was particularly pleasant. We were there with our adult daughter who was visiting from California. The service was especially good, and the food was fabulous as always.Special Features:
- good place to dine with romanceDrBob31VIPDined on 10/25/2014This is a quiet, small restaurant with a decidedly warm ambience. It is made for romantic events. I highly recommend it.Special Features:
- Slow serviceNYCFoodieDined on 10/25/2014Having dined at this restaurant many times I can only imagine it was an off night. The service was extremely slow. Our reservation was for 8:30 on a Saturday night. By 10:00 I had to ask about our appetizers! That was preceded by us having to ask for bread at 9:30. We were famished! We asked the waiter what was a good pick for an appetizer that night. He recommended their seafood platter. Keep in mind there were only 2 of us. Finally, a bit after 10pm, it was brought to us. Not being told it cost $125 and could feed between 4 & 6 people, we were miffed! The fish was good, but way too much for two people and not being told how much it cost we felt taken. We could barely eat our main course since we were so full.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Dinner with FriendsQueenDined on 10/23/2014I am a frequent diner here because the food and service is always top notch. My husband and I dined with another couple that we don't get to see frequently so I was hoping it would be perfect. We all had different entrees which included the salmon, filet, sea bass and scallops. We were all very please with our meals. We had a little stumble with the desserts we ordered, but the wait staff took care of it immediately with no questions asked. That's why I highly recommend this place---- the owner and staff are as top notch as the food. Thanks for another great experience!Special Features:
- one of the best beef wellingtonsmigpooVIPDined on 10/23/2014I love beef wellington and to have it prepared really well is always a treat. The chef at Esty Street does an excellent job with this dish.Special Features:
- spectacular. ..luciluDined on 10/8/2014Wonderful wine list and superb food and service. They are very knowledgeable about food allergies and take food preparation seriously for those who suffer. They will prepare dishes without certain ingredients if necessary. This is seriously important to me and so my experience was wonderful, I had no allergic reactions. Very happy experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great, Comfortable PlaceTibsterDined on 10/4/2014The service is exceptional, as is the attention to detail. Wine, liquor, and beer 'book' needs a forklift..putting it all on an iPad might be more efficient. Reservations are must and going early is better but the restaurant is run very well. Our first time here did not give us the experience of knowing where to sit. Ask to be seated in the dining room and not by the bar. It was not unpleasant but facing the bar with the TV's on is very distracting along with the ebb and flow of the small bar crowd. Food was very good. Filet was done to perfection, appetizers were beautiful and just the right size. Noting the Filet was not heavily salted like most. Fries were cold but overall a great meal.Special Features:
- Consistently good!LMLKDined on 9/30/2014Always a guaranteed delicious dining experience. Great menu and service. Highly recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ClemieClemieDined on 9/26/2014The food at Esty Street continues to be excellent. I would go there every night, if I were not afraid it would lose it's special dining experience for me.Special Features:
- Never a disappointmentbeezerVIPDined on 9/26/2014The food and service at this restaurant are always top notch. From presentation to taste- from appetizers to dessert it is always a pleasure to dine here. And also the music played is always an added bonus. We will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Marvelous ChoiceBusinessExecDined on 9/24/2014I held a business dinner for a group of 4, and it was a superb evening. Awesome food and great service. Esty Street is my "go to" restaurant whenever I have visiting colleagues and want to ensure a great evening out. It is always a great experience.Special Features:
- OUTSTANDING rsestaurant!PrezDined on 9/17/2014I have been to Esty's numerous times, both personal and business groups. have never been disappointed with their "welcoming" to customers, service, and the real reason for returning....excellent food!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic!PinchosDined on 9/14/2014Ambiance was great- was greeted at the door immediately. No bad tables however I suggest a corner in front of the library. Food was fantastic but you shouldn't worry about pricing if you choose this restaurant- it's pricey. The waitstaff was attentive and easy on the eyes. Good clean cut boys who have been trained well. The complimentary fruit dessert since it was our anniversary was a great touch- they wouldn't allow us to leave without celebrating. Overall great experience and one of our faves to go out for a special occasion. Dinner at the bar looked inviting too if we ever want something easy but more elevated than your general neighborhood bar and grill.Special Features:
- Horrible hostDavidCVIPDined on 9/13/2014Worst service we have ever experienced in Bergen County. Steve the host was rude, arrogant and impolite. I do not understand how a personality such as Steve could exist in a restaurant that charges premium prices. The ambiance was good. The food was average. They never fill up water unless you request it. Service is slow and pathetic. The two restrooms for the entire restaurant have long lines on busy days. We will never visit this horrible restaurant again. Please avoid this place at any cost. There are many other better restaurants in the neighborhood with better food, ambiance and service.
- Out2brunchDined on 9/13/2014Great restaurant for a special occasion. Presentation of appetizers and entrees was outstanding. Wait staff friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Will definitely continue to choose Esty Street for all our special occasions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary CouplePMPfansDined on 9/10/2014The food was excellent, perfectly prepared. My wife has a food allergy and the kitchen was on the ball to ask a few additional questions. Service at the bar was friendly, but for a small bar it was hard to get the bartenders attention to pay the bill plus he was slow to offer another drink. We aren't regulars and they seemed to get all the attention. The waiter was friendly, but seemed to disappear even though it was a week night and the restaurant wasn't crowded. For the $300 we spent the service didn't fully measure up. We are used to Stone Barns at Blue Hill where the cost becomes a minor thought because the service is so outstanding. Esty Street is great for those that live close by and are regulars.Special Features:
- This is a great fine dining placeMalibuahVIPDined on 8/30/2014Very nice fine dining restaurant for many of occasions. Great food good wine list an elegant placeSpecial Features:
- Always ConsistentfuntodineDined on 8/28/2014Great place… excellent food, ambiance and service. A very comfortable, relaxing restaurant. We have been going to Esty Street for about 4 years now and always look forward to returning because you can count on the consistency of the food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- 3rd time's a charmDkstar1Dined on 8/24/2014We 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)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Food and ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/15/2014Anthony our waiter provided outstanding service and recommendations. His knowledge of the wine list and menu made for excellent pairings and a thoroughly enjoyable night.Special Features:
- Very nice find in Park RidgeLumpuckreviewsDined on 8/14/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Spectacular RestaurantHart2Hart50Dined on 8/12/2014I took my friend out to lunch and the experience was perfect. The food, the service, and the ambiance all lent themselves to an unforgettable birthday celebration! Thank You!Special Features:

- outstanding beef wellingtonmigpooVIPDined on 8/1/2014I 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!Special Features:

- Best in all categories.MorrisDined on 7/19/2014My husband and I have been going to Esty for a few years now. We compare every restaurant to Esty for its service and quality of food. I have not found anything better. It is a must for all who crave excellence.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Executive Assistant LunchPentaxDined on 7/1/2014My 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.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/30/2014Food very good; service a bit pushy and annoying. Waiter kept pacing until we gave our dinner order - and the restaurant was nearly empty so no reason for the rush.Special Features:
- Exceptional Food ExperienceIVU7VIPDined on 6/26/2014The 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.Special Features:
- A gem of a restaurant!DiJiDined on 6/21/2014We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Not happyHshellsVIPDined on 5/31/2014My 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!
- Very nice dinner...luvgoodfoodVIPDined on 5/30/2014We have dined at esty street many times. The food is always consistently good. Had a great server named Steven....highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
