    The service was very good, the noise levels inside of the restaurant were high as it was on a packed Saturday early evening. So we elected to be seated outside in the tent. The noise level in the outside seating area was nominal. The service was good, and our waitress was quite accommodating and personable. The food was fair as their menus is quite extensive. The prices reflected the restaurant’s north Jersey location. The prices were slightly mitigated, as it’s a BYOB venue.

    I had a reservation for 6 at 6:45PM. There seemed to be some confusion as to where to seat us when we arrived. We were seated at a table that probably would seat 8 to 10! There were 2 large parties near us. One was exceptionally loud - we could not hear each other talk. The food was excellent. I would be willing to try again to see if we would have a better experience.

    Chipped plates, inattentive service, the food presentation was abysmal. A $40 Risotto should not look like slop, the taste was ok but the presentation & slightly watery.

    Father’s Day dinner with the kids. Very good overall; my dish could’ve done with a little more seasoning. There were only 4 of us and they added tip without any notice , they we tipped another 20% so and $85 bill wound up being $133. That was very off putting, the kind of thing that hold have me my return. Managements shady policy doesn’t take away from the good food and the great service, but it certainly leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

    Ordinarily I would give a 5 star overall rating BUT we waited and waited for what seemed like hours for our enrees to be delivered and then two dishes came out inedible! One was ice cold and one was so overcooked the chicken could not be cut! The two other dishes for our party of 4 came without any problem. The waitress was very apologetic and the owner came over also. But no offer was made for a dessert or to comp one of the meals (and only one meal was reordered, the other person just gave up)! We've dined there before and the food is generally excellent, this time is was not. And the noise level made converation amoung the four of us very difficult. I may go back but I can't, in good conscience, recommend Bistro 1051 to others.

    Ordered the fried calamari and there was a long white hair on one of the pieces. I also ordered the Broccoli rabe and sausage flatbread. The broccoli rabe was in bi massive chunks all over the flatbread sausage was tiny and flavorless. Probably won’t go back.

    We were visiting the restaurant for a 55th Birthday celebration. We made reservation well in advance. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were told there were 2 parties going on in the restaurant and the only available seating was OUTSIDE in a tent set up in the parking lot. It was 50 degrees and windy. We had no alternative but to eat outside. It was cold, windy and not comfortable. If the restaurant knew they had parties going on why did they take reservations???? The service was ok, we had a long wait because the server was constantly inside the restaurant. Who could blame her, it was cold. They offered us a heat lamp, which was burning our skin. Overall it was a disaster meal and did not make for a memorable birthday celebration. We will not be returning to this establishment.

    Christmas Eve. Clearly the kitchen staff was understaffed as well as the kitchen. 3 hours for appetizers and entrees is way too long for a table for 3 at 7 pm. It was difficult to enjoy the food and/or even eat an entree an hour and a half after the appetizer. Additionally there’s no mention of a “special gratuity” on the menu or in the restaurant that was automatically added to the bill.

    Went on 11/29/21. —- quality of food is not what it once was !!! Fish was not cooked right and the mash potatoes were ice cold !!!! Either Mike doesn’t care anymore or maybe he changed chefs —it’s not good when mash potatoes come out cold !!! Doesn’t the chef check???? —- Mike come on !!! No excuse!!!! You will be losing a lot people if You don’t keep up the quality!!! Joe —from Clark —a steady customer—but rethinking !!!

    I was good overall. When we arrived took some time for them to direct to our table even though the restaurant was almost empty. Service was also good but a little delayed. My friend ordered a very delicious dish that was very tasty. Mine was a little average but not bad.
