Great location for a cozy dinner with friends.
Clubby, dark wood environment. Service very good. All food was excellent but price of Kobe beef carpaccio appetizer (at $95) should have been stated up front- that’s unexpected for an entree, never mind an appetizer. Otherwise a great, intimate dining experience.

A little disappointing. Desserts and appetizers were great. Entrees varied greatly. Duck was perfect, short ribs dry and over-cooked, steak vastly under-cooked.

This was our third time to Esty Street and each time we've been there we have had wonderful experiences. The restaurant is not large which is perfect because it keeps it intimate and maintains quality service. The servers know the menu and make excellent suggestions. Food arrives hot and prepared as requested. The bar is well stocked and the quality of the wine is prime. This restaurant is a definite one to visit.

We enjoy dining at Esty Street as the menu and specials are so diverse.
The oysters were fresh, the pasta special was tasty and the Japanese Kobe beef was
delicious.
Surf and turf entree consisted of a filet beef with a lobster or crab cake. I actually could not
tell the difference.
The vegetarian special was deliciously seasoned.
The service was very good and the meal was memorable. We enjoy the chefs vision of unusual
specials that are presented to us and look forward to our return for a truly wonderful dining
experience.

Important business dinner was perfectly staged. No rush but attentive professional service. Excellent, but expensive wine list. Despite being a weekday, tasty and varied menu, all prepared with care and flair. Quiet, elegant atmosphere. Highly recommend, but pricey.

Went with my husband for date night as I had a gift certificate. Cocktails were large and good. Service was just right- not too overbearing. (We did wait for a while for our menus though, but I think they wait until you are served your drinks until they bring the menus). Food was amazing! I had the duck confit ravioli for app and whole mustard covered salmon for entree. Both very very good! My husband had the crabcake (all crab) and the elk chop, which was cooked to perfection!
Is this place expensive? Yes but the food is so worth it!

Always love the food at Esty. Octopus appetizer was tender and perfectly seasoned. My husband enjoyed the elk special and I indulged in the short rib over lobster risotto (had to stop myself from licking the plate!). We usually don't indulge in dessert but thankful we tried the peanut butter and pretzel tort - too good for words. My one and only complaint was that I felt a little rushed. Restaurant wasn't crowded and we were in and out in an hour flat. But, it won't stop me from going back!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Food, cocktails and atmosphere are usually fabulous.
The overall experience was sooo off this time. A real disappointment. When I walked in I had to wait like 5 minutes for my coat and to be seated. This NEVER happens so I should have known it would be terrible and I would have walked out. Service was awful, our meal took like forever. Drink orders were super slow and no one even acknowledged or apologized for the mess.
Recommendation to restaurant- don't have open reservations if you have 2 servers for the restaurant and can't handle the crowd.

as regulars to Esty Street, I am almost hesitant to let too many people know how good this restaurant is. we lived in NYC for over 10 years and I still work in NYC and there are very few places in NJ that completely hold their own with best NYC restaurants. However, Esty Street food is consistently of that high quality and simply is outstanding. From the lobster caesar, tuna tartar, octopus, hen of the woods mushrooms, steak, tuna, salmon and always with a long list of specials, we always say wow, so glad NJ has such a local place. In addition, amazing dirty martini’s w blue cheese or pickle stuffed olives or other drinks seal the deal for us. Several varieties of fresh bread with interesting pesto or butter nice way to start. Steve the manager is always friendly, positive, eager to make sure everyone is as happy as possible and have a fun night. When tables are unavailable the bar is a great place to eat as well with a cool fire behind the bar.

This was my my third time to Esty. We love it everyone we go. This time it was Valentine’s Day. Everything was delicious. From the wine to the scallops with pate and Chilean sea bass with risotto. The red velvet mousse cake was also terrific.
So happy when we discovered this little gem a few years ago and a Ridgewood kitchen tour. The owners were serving fig,onion,bacon jam and giving out their business cards. We were in love. In fact at one of our visits to Esty we asked about the jam and they made it and brought it to our table even though it wasn’t on the menu.
Can’t wait to tell all our friends about our experience. Thanks again.

We love Esty st! From start to finish our dining experience was excellent. Bar service was great while we waited a few minutes for our table. Ambiance is cozy and intimate. Everything we ordered was delicious. Lobster Caesar salad, tuna entree, and airline chicken- all cooked and prepared perfectly. Their dessert can’t be missed either. Thanks for an awesome date nite Esty Street! We’ll be back soon.

I booked this restaurant for a birthday. The restaurant knew this but didn't even give a candle to the celebrant. The restaurant was very noisy, but it was Saturday night so not a surprise.

The restaurant is over-priced for Park Ridge, New Jersey at any rate. My $24 lobster medallions tasted of cheese, not lobster.

Most of the food was good. I ordered the special of a petite filet and a crab cake. The filet was great and filling. I did not touch the crab cake and twice told the bus boy(short and dark-haired) that I wanted to bring it home with me. Well, guess what? No crab when I got home. What a disappointment.

This is restaurant where I spent nearly $1000 including a very generous tip. The doggie bags are not given while you're at the table, so even if we'd checked before we left it would have been too late to recover my uneaten crab. This ruined the occasion for me and I won't be back. If poor service/management/whatever hadn't resulted in the restaurant not including the crab cake, I would have given the place two stars.

The service was awful and chaotic. We were a table of four. You had to ask for everything and not once but several times for example water, bread, salt and pepper. For the prices you are paying for example a special was $80 and appetizer special was $35 and specialty drinks were $20 per drink one would think you were fine dining however the service is not at par. The waiters were disorganized. They left us with the menus that are bulky and don’t fit on the tables until our appetizers arrived. The food is amazing, however my sister and I both got the Chilean sea bass with shrimp risotto and it was amazing but it looked like they split our fish portion between us. I should have taken a picture. We both left there hungry. And if you plan on taking home your left overs don’t even bother that becomes a fiasco. Definitely not worth the aggravation and disorganization. Food is excellent but overpriced and the service was not at par. We could have taken a cab into NYC and back and had a better experience.

Too much money for average service, really loud room. The food was above average but not outstanding. Given the price and reviews we were expecting outstanding. Great location and charming building.

When you spend $70 for a bottle of wine you expect to be on the table before the meal, not 10 minutes in.

Everytime I go to Esty Street, I ask myself: Why don't we come here more often? Today, I went for a holiday lunch with my girlfriends. A bottle of Veuve Clicqhot to start and followed by the most delicious lunches - spicy tuna tartare, crab cakes and shaved brussel sprout and kale salad to start and share. For entrees, I chose the Seafood Risotto which was richly satisfying but didn't leave me feeling gluttonous. The seafood, especially the fish, was cooked to perfection. My friends thoroughly enjoyed the Seven Spice Tuna Salad, Sashimi special and the Esty Burger. The staff, ambiance and presentation is 5 star. Will be back soon!
