    I have visited Esty numerous times before for dinners and drinks at the bar but this was my first business lunch at the establishment. The service was impeccable, and the food earned rave reviews from my colleagues. I'm always impressed whenever I visit the restaurant and will now make it my destination of choice when I have an important business lunch!

    Having 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.

    I 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!

    Wonderful 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.

    The 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.

    Ambiance 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.

    Worst 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.

    The 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.

    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.

    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!
