although I kept requesting a different table, the hostess was very patience with us and tried her best to accommodate our request. Our waiter, Shaun, was also quite helpful in offering suggestions on our choice of entrees. Regardless of which waiter we asked for assistance, they all seemed professional .

Table cloth was dirty and had holes in it, Caesar salad was terrible, too much poorly made dressing. Service was inattentive and distracted

The return of their original chef has brightened up the menu and specials. Chicken scaprielli has returned to it's former glory. Our own time tested measure of how things are doing in the kitchen. An appetizer of grilled seafood in a large clamshell was a welcome opener. Delicious and fresh. My sea bass was cooked to perfection, hot and succulent. Our waiter was masterful, gliding in and out of our space at just the right times, never intrusive. After falling off quite a bit these past few years Grissini is back to being on top once again. Here's a tip....?if you can find out your favorite table's number, according to the hostesses floorplan, you can ask for it when making reservations. I know mine, but I'm not telling!

First time visitor, excellent food (my wife and I both had the specials) and friendly service. The menu has a nice variety at different price levels which I always appreciate. I had put a note in our reservation that it was my wife's birthday and they gave us a complimentary dessert along with a song, a really nice cheesecake decorated with fruit, going the extra mile. I recommend this place.

The scallops were undercook and the fish tasted frozen. Way overpriced for the food! Paid $175 for lunch for stuff pepper appetizer, scallops for two, and two fish lunches-no alcohol. Much better choices elsewhere. Not worth the value.

Very noisy, small space. My husband’s elbows were touching every person that was passing by. The waiter cleaned my side of the table but not my husband’s side and the food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Maybe we’ll just sit at the bar next time

I have been here 4x in the past 6 months. Every time I have a service issue and it’s always with the same waiter. I am either charged for something I didn’t order, given a more expensive glass of wine than what I asked for and therefore charged more and now my credit card was charged twice for the same amount.
The food is good, the noise level is very loud so if your not bothered by that its ok, but you have to be on top of your charges because my consistent experience now is getting ripped off

The menu over the years has been simplified with more everyday food choices. Prices have been lowered to reflect that. More many, this is an excellent reason to have an above average meal here. Awhile back, Grissini’s was a very highly regarded dining establishment with many complex choices and prices to match. They are friendly and courteous and have a loyal following even after the changeover to more pedestrian choices and prices.
Nothing to be critical about Grissini’s I just miss the level of “fancy” they were known for. Enjoyable either way.

Food is almost always top notch. Regardless of the course, the portions, temperatures, flavors, textures and smells all seem to have been carefully crated. The environs are sort of like a redone diner.. narrow and long but appointed quite luxuriously if tackily. The wine list is predictably overpriced but comprehensive. The clientele are almost always the will-heeled Bergen County elites (somehow daily they park a Bentley near the front door, and somehow it's never mine :-). The waiters are all Italian or Latin-literate, which has its own charm. There are usually many waiters hanging around - often chatting loudly in the narrow aisle - but service is a bit on the indifferent side. Prices are insane.
