Always a good experience. Food is consistently interesting, well prepared and presented. Service is over the top. Make early evening reservations for quieter conversations.

The food is excellent, if pricey, but the service is slow and inattentive at best. Lovely room and an extensive wine list.

Chose this restauant due to location between the friends getting together. The exterior needs a serious refresh, dated and dusty with awful fake window boxes. The interior also could benefit from updating. Outstanding service from Mike as we perused the menu. Selections well curated, strong recitation on the specials. Overall pricing was exorbitant relative to both portion size and value, as if being pretentiously priced made the dishes more significant. We eat out frequently at excellent restaurants in NYC that offer a much more refined dining experience at the same price point or less.

The service was very poor . It was a Saturday night and we had a 6:30 reservation. We were seated for over 15 minutes and they still didn’t bring our menus until we asked for them . They were definitely understaffed as far as wait staff and maybe in kitchen as well . The waiter did not know prices on specials or food on menu that were market priced. It was very crowded and the noise level was very high . There was a big party next to us and they were extremely loud . The food was very good but not sure if I would go back again because of the very poor service and how long everything took.

More like MEH-sty Street. It’s a beautiful room and the staff tries hard but they fumbled a bit with the introduction of the wine that our daughter had sent us for our anniversary, and they never offered us the free cocktail that we were supposed to get with our Opentable Booking. Frankly I forgot about it myself until I saw something today on OpenTable that reminded me. But BOOOO. I also think for the price you should offer an amouse bouche or goyrmandises at end. Food was very good but I wouldn’t say mine blowing and the crabcake was too salty and full of too much old bay or similar seasoning. Desserts lackluster. Appreciated that you decorated the plate but you wrote “ happy birthday “ when in fact it was an anniversary. My daughter sending wine for our anniversary should’ve been the second tip off in addition to what I requested on OpenTable. Definitely needs tweaking for us to return

We made reservations to have dinner with friends. Neither of us had been there for a few years. We were unsure as to what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised that the service was still excellent! We were seated immediately for our 6:30 reservation. We were seated next to a large party with children who seemed to be celebrating something. It was a bit loud but not to the extent you could not have a nice conversation. The food was perfectly prepared and beautifully served. Our server was most helpful and professional. The prices were a bit on the high side, but the food was so delicious! We will definitely not wait so long to go back.

A great place for a special dinner. Food was excellent, service good. It can be a little noisy due to all the hard wood present but overall highly recommended. Not the cheapest restaurant but on a special occasion good value.

We were very warmly welcomed upon arrival. A quiet weekday evening. It is a cozy place. Service was courteous and careful, but the server kept forgetting requests and had to be reminded often. It was not busy. Two if us enjoyed s cocktail before dinner. It was a leisurely evening.

All three of us had specials: two surf and turf, one rack of lamb. They were simply perfect. They were preceded by a lovely selection of warm breads served with sweet butter and a pesto sauce. Two had dessert...a chocolate cake and coconut ice cream with a delicious chocolate sauce that hardened into a shell upon hitting the ice cream.

It was a very expensive dinner: $306. Not everyday dining. But every bite was delicious.
Two coffees.

The duck l'orange was dry. no l'orange sauce was seen.
A medium order came in rare.
The apple dessert was around 2 crushed apple slices in a doughy shell.

Totally disappointing.

This is our 'go to' restaurant for special occasions. This time was a birthday celebration for 7. As usual, the food was excellent - some examples include the Lobster Profiteroles, the special Sea Bass with Risotto, various Steaks, and the Osso Buco. The desserts are also excellent. Overall, the dining experience is worth the prices paid.

In my opinion the service was not up to the usual standards on what was a busy Saturday evening. For example we ordered a second bottle of red wine, it took 20 minutes to appear. The wait between the appetizers and the entrees was overly long. We had to pour our own wine 'top-ups' as the server came by infrequently.

A nice touch was the special 'birthday plating' of the celebrant's dessert.

We will return, but the restaurant needs to provide better service on busy occasions given the cost.

Disappointing.......As we had been to Esty several times in the last 5 months, including a multi-thousand dollar retirement dinner, we had come to expect a refined dining experience. Apparently, all bets were off for the Valentine's/President's Day weekend: The noise level was atrocious, the table (for 4) very small and crowded (waitstaff did not remove multiple bottles of water, empty glasses or extraneous dishes), service for all courses was exceptionally slow, the wine list was outdated (several requested varieties of higher-end Bordeaux wines were unavailable) and the chef's interpretation of the classic Beef Wellington was both disappointing and an embarrassment. On top of all that, it took almost 25 minutes from time of request of check to final payment.

There are too many other quality dining establishments in the Bergen county area to pay this kind of money for such shoddy treatmemt.

The food and ambience were outstanding and we had a wonderful dinner celebrating his birthday. I took off a star because the doors were locked when we arrived for the first seating of the evening. I planned to have a drink at the bar before dinner and had expected they would be open before the first seating. I realize I should have checked online to see what time they open but I didn’t expect that we’d have to sit in the parking lot when we arrived 30 minutes before our reservation. Once at the bar, the bartender was not very friendly and he seemed inconvenienced to have to serve us our drinks. That being said, we enjoyed the rest of our visit. Our waiter and the food were great and we look forward to going back - perhaps a little later in the evening next time in hopes we don’t inconvenience the bartender when we order our drinks.
