    Fantastic food with a great variety on the menu. We enjoyed the Porterhouse steak, but have also been here before for appetizers like the Beef sliders, calamari, and Japanese mussels. Good wine selection and overall very good pricing. Top off the evening with great live entertainment and dancing and Bistro 880 is just a perfect venue to spend a weekend date night.

    Susan who is the manager is very nice, friendly, accommodating & very patient with the customers, including Rosa, Lupe & other staff are really awesome too. The service, food & venue were excellent, especially the live band & the lead singers Yolanda & Janet you had for 2 nights, September 16th & 17th, was amazing! Hooray to Bistro 880, Double Tree by Hilton in Newark/Fremont.

    I made my reservation about 3 weeks in advance and when my reservation was near, I received a email saying my reservation was cancelled by the restaurant. The restaurant told me they don't cancel. Lucky I was able to reschedule on line for same day and time. Everything turned out fine at the end however his happened. this was OpenTable's error.

    I celebrated my 70th birthday party at 880 and the made it just a wonderful experience. The area was prepared so elegantly. The food was super delicious. The service (Rosa and her helpers ) did a fantastic job and ran it smoothly. I would do this again as I was very satisfied at Bristro 880. The exceptional person in this was Susan, the Manager. She worked with me and she did her best to accommodate my request.

    My family and I enjoyed our first buffet style outing since the start of the pandemic for Mother's Day 2022. The tables and ambiance were elegant. There was a nice touch of having a talented pianist, Richard to add to the event. The food was overall pretty good... fresh and clean. We enjoyed our time.

    Service and ambience were very good. However, the meats(prime rib pork loin and turkey were very dry. Would liked to have seen more selection of vegetables and some types of potatoes to go with the meats to incorporate a mixture of more lunch type selections as well as the breakfast items. Dessert selections were very good but no chocolate cupcakes, only red velvet. would also like to have some whipped cream at the dessert bar. Otherwise, a very pleasant well organized environment.

    Brought my Elderly Father here for Easter brunch. We had reservations and had to wait in a long line to get in for 15 To 20 minutes. Once he got inside we had a hard time finding our table, we were told someone would help seat us right away. When we went to get food, it was completely disorganized. Food options were no the same on both sides of buffet. No one was controlling or helping to organize. They should have spaced tables out with different timing, so it wasn’t so chaotic. We waited over 20 minutes in the buffet line. My Father had a hard time standing for so long, he wasn’t even able to get salad because it was on the other side of the buffet and he didn’t want to wait longer. By the time we sat back down our food was cold. It was extremely frustrating, and too expensive considering what we got. We wanted to go back to get some things we weren’t able to get before but it was worse the second time around. The seafood and prime rib had run out the first time. We were waiting for plates and the line was longer, we wound up just leaving. I would not come back here and wish I didn’t pay so much for such a lousy time. Worst Easter dining experience to date.

    The Easter brunch was fantastic, there were so many options on the buffet line. The seafood was fresh and they even had king crab legs! One of the best parts was the made to order omelet station and the waffle station. The prime rib at the carving station was cooked to perfection. The ballroom was decorated so festively and the dessert area was amazing with all the different types and chocolate fountain. There was also a lovely pianist playing the entire time in the ballroom. It was also very nice of the executive chef to come out and greet every table. Will be back for Mother’s Day!

    We had a wonderful Easter brunch last Sunday. My only concern is the check-in process was slow. If there would be more people upfront to check reservation, accept payment so the wait will not be that long would be outstanding.

    We were being sitter by the waitress, then the head waitress ask how old my grandaughter is.. and she said 15. Then the head waitress told us that my granddaughter has to leave at 8:30 because that is a club. We understand that, so we ask her if she can just transfer us to another table. She said rudely and emphatically NO, she has to leave. All of us left., and transfer to another restaurant. She is the rudest, discourteous, and has the poorest customer service, we have ever encountered. we always go to Bistro 880 with the same group every Valentine’s Day, and on special occasions, this is the 1st time we encountered such rudeness.
