Sested right away. Service
Sested right away. Service was attentive and responsive w/o being overbearing. Tables are a bit close and unfortunatly we had a loudish Jersey talker next to us so we had the benefit of two converstations. Food was great especially the calamari appertizer. Great wine suggestion with many great by the galss offerings. After the table with the Jersey mouth left the rest of the dinner was really good.

First time at Esty. As soon
First time at Esty. As soon as I walked in I knew I would like it. The entrance opens into the bar area and it is very welcoming with a gas fire display behind the bar and candles and fresh flowers. The bartender was fantastic. Excellent drinks. Lovely manner and interaction. Service was wonderful. Our waiter Jack was very informed, pleasant and courteous. Dining room, tables, details -- all appeared to be thought out and in classic good taste. Very comfortable ambiance but also very special. We all enjoyed our food and were not rushed even though we took almost 3 hours to finish all courses. I was there with my Husband, Sister and Mother, but it would have been just as lovely for a romantic dinner for two. Highly recommend!

We celebrated a 50th birthday
We celebrated a 50th birthday with a "ladies brunch" Esty Street was a special place with delightful food and the perfect atmosphere for our group of 8.

This is one of our favorite
This is one of our favorite places, but on the night we were there the service was very slow--unusual of Esty Street. We sat quite a while before anyone took our drink order, and at the end of the meal there was no waiter in sight so we sat and talked waiting for our check. Finally I had to go out to the bar area to find someone and ask for a check.

Great time was had by all
From the moment that you walk in to the time that you leave, you are made to feel special. We had the late reservations for a table of 5, and we were never short changed, because people wanted to go home. The courses were spaced out evenly and the team was totally attentive. Food was great from the main course to the side dishes. Thanks for a great evening.

My wife and I love this restaurant for quiet, romantic evenings. We have never been disappointed. All their entrees, whether fish or meat, are prepared with care. Presentation is outstanding as well as service. I would highly recommend Chilean Sea Bass (when offered) as well as the grass fed beef and rack of lamb. The wine list will make any wine enthusiast ecstatic! It's an expensive evening, but worth it every time.

Best food, service and ambience. I started off with the braised beets and my husband had the soft shell crab in a tempura batter for appetizers. Then I ordered the sea bass special which was delicious and my husbands filet mignon was melt in your mouth fantastic! Very nice wine list too. We sat near the "library" corner table. Perfect. I am going to recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a special occasion and wants an incredible meal from start to finish.

Go for a cozy dining experience. The food was carefully prepared and the service very good. Ambiance dark and pretty. Ask for table away from the door, otherwise you catch the breeze!

A friend and I were celebrating two special occasions in our lives and the restaurant made every effort to make the celebrations memorable. The ambiance was perfect, the food very well prepared and our wait staff pleasant and attentive. I always enjoy going to Esty. Well done!

My husband and I both had the escargot followed by they sea bass. Escargot was delicious---would like to see it served with crostini to mop up all the sauce. Sea bass was amazing--needed a little something to brighten up the sauce.
Great food and great chef!

Anniversary Dinner at Esty Street
We enjoyed the night and took dear friends who hadn't been to Esty Street before. We were celebrating our wedding anniversaryand enjoyed the ambiance. The quality of food was very good. We especially enjpyed the scallops entree and beet appetizer. Drinks and desserts are a little higher than comparable restaurants in the Northern NJ area.

It is always interesting to see reviews on the opposite sides of the spectrum. It makes one wonder - did all these people go to the same restaurant? I think it just means that tastes differ, that's all.
We recently dined at Esty Street while celebrating my wife's birthday. This is still the best restaurant in Bergen county. Good food and food presentation. Great service. Great atmosphere. We could actually talk to each other instead of screaming. Wine list is superb. I am very happy that this restaurant is just a few minutes drive from my house. It adds to the experience as well.

Esty Street is always fabulous and Kim is a wonderful owner, as his assistant Steve and the other servers.

Amazing food and ambience
Love the menu- both drinks and food. Make sure to bring your wallet though and be prepared to spend!!! It's very expensive even for Bergen County standards.

Good food but too expensive.
Good food but too expensive. Is it strange to say that the service is too attentive? It was not crowded when we were there so maybe that is why they were always at the table. Overall, to us, it is not worth the money.

A lovely lunch

A bit pricey but top-notch quality
Well-prepared dishes, great service, extensive but pricey wine list. The only complaint is the noise level can detract from an otherwise superb experience.

In the past, the menu was predictable and left a lot to be desired. The new Chef has worked wonders with the selection. This may now be my new favorite place. Compliments to the Chef!

COMPLIMENTS TO THE NEW CHEF!
The new entree line up is fantastic, thank you to the new Chef. I had stopped coming to Esty Street because the menu was so predictable and sometimes I was wishing for a healthy & hearty option and none were found. Now there are several new items that are unique and fantastic.

The best in Bergen county, for dinners, lunches or parties. Kim and his excellent staff make sure everything is always a fabulous experience. We just had a luncheon for our mom and everyone raved. The food is absolutely delicious, with a menu that pleases all.
