OpenTable Diner (New York Area)

Do not even bother to go here. The restaurant has been closed for about a year. The kitchen remains to do room service and breakfast. They also provide a very limited bar menu and provide seating on the atrium floor. Very disappointed was a two night getaway for my wife's birthday.

Restaurant is in the lobby of the Embassy Suites Hotel. Although there is a full menu published, only limited items including some appetizers and sandwiches were being served on a Monday evening at 8:00. There was no notification prior to arriving at the restaurant that the restaurant area would be closed and dark, only the bar area was open.

We waited awhile to receive our entrées, and sipped a bottle of $50 wine that did not even have a cork. It was a twist-top... The mashed potatoes were good, the broccoli rabe slightly scorched and the chicken was savory but a little dry. The waiter was pleasant but there were too many long spans of time when he didn't check in on us. Just ok, not great, my colleague agreed.

Bistecca is inside the Embassy Suites hotel in Parsippany, NJ. The menu is a bit limited and I struggled to find something I really wanted. I stood at the hostess stand for several minutes before walking through the dining room in search of someone to seat me. I was just about in the kitchen when I encountered someone. After that the service was good and so was the food. I would eat here again if I were a guest at the hotel but would not seek it out or recommend to others. There are too many other choices. This is a very good option to have if you're a hotel guest.

Nestled inside of the embassy suites hotel. This was a beautiful setting but that was about it. Food was overpriced and undercooked. Ingredients were fresh though so we may have just hit a bad day but if You have another choice, take it.

We were tired from a long trip to NJ from AZ. Open Table suggested this local Italian near to our hotel.
Don't usually care for restaurants in hotels, but this one had good reviews and it lived up to them. The food was cook very well. Our homemade pasta was perfect as was the sauce & meat accompaniments. Delectable!

Great location (right off I-80 and I-287), nice ambiance, a nice selection of cuisine especially deserts and very responsive table service.

SOnia our waitress was good but we had a few problems with the food. Soup cold, cheese on items we asked to be omitted.

Bistecca restaurant is a very nice place for a romantic dinner. The menu is limited and not being able to get one of the very few appetizers was a disappointment. They didn't have scallops in stock. Very surprising being there's only a few choices for appetizers. Other than that, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was awesome. Our server was not very friendly.
