About Bibi'z Restaurant & Lounge

In the quaint town of Westwood, NJ, Bibi'z serves up Westwood's exciting dishes and a unique ambiance. At Bibi'z, every dish is created using only the freshest, finest ingredients. We use NJ, NY or PA organic farms for produce, poultry and dairy. We will only serve wild caught fresh fish, since farm raised has been found to have many toxins. Our meats are the choicest cuts of grass fed Black Angus. And our global cuisine is designed to create a healthier way to feed our body and soul.

It would be our pleasure to pair your meal with an eclectic wine or recommend a classic or signature martini, single malt scotch, single barrel bourbon, cordial or beer.

We look forward to serving you a delightful meal in our exciting addition to Bergen County's vibrant restaurant scene.

We spent Thanksgiving atBibi'z. Typically we don't go out for holidays like this, but decided this year it would be best for our family. We chose Bibi'z because not only did they offer a traditional turkey dinner, but they also had some nice vegan options. Three course meal for $45. which I thought was good, especially for a holiday. Portion size was adequate, not huge, but enough. They ran out of pumpkin pie, which I thought was strange on this holiday. Overall, it was a very nice meal out and we were all satisfied. Cocktails are very good, too!

Where do I begin.... my cousin was in from Scotland and thought I had planned a nice night out. Much to my surprise it was a huge disappointment. One tell sign should have been there was hardly anyone dining on a Friday evening at 7. Secondly, when people request "house wine" you would believe the price would have been lower than their featured wines. Then lastly, when we brought the bill to the attention of the waiter and explained 2 people at the table ordered the same drink but were charged differently, not only did the waiter try to explain it was b/c she had ordered blue cheese olives (which was incorrect) but they "adjusted" the bill to the higher amount without explaining & ran our credit cards through so no room for further debate. It was handled very poorly by management and I was beyond embarrassed in front of my family.

The largely American menu with some Greek accents was all well prepared and flavorful, nicely presented, with few surprises (I'd like to see a bit more creativity with how vegetable side dishes are prepared here); desserts may have been the most creative part of the menu. Those who enjoy good food, and particularly dishes familiar to them, will enjoy this place

The taste of all of the food we ordered was very bland and not memorable. Our last visit the dishes had more flavor. With such beautiful ambience and great service the restaurant could do better if the food was flavorful. One exception: the Spanish ratatouille was very nice but also not as amazing as the previous visit.

Enjoyable experience. The wait staff was professional and very attentive. I asked for gluten free bread, and when it was brought to the table, the bread arrived, nice and warm. The dipping olive oil was delicious. The Cesar salad was served with part of the lettuce cut up, and with some of the lettuce leaves kept whole. The dressing was light, not weighing down the crisp lettuce. The lamb meatballs were good too. I appreciated the sauce more than the meatballs, but it was still enjoyable. The sear ahi tuna appetizer was good too, but a bit bland. The mushroom ravioli were incredible! The strip bass special was very good. (The portions were on the larger size.)The special drinks were another WOW for us. If you partake, I recommend trying one. Oh, and dessert. We split a chocolate mousse - delicious. To sum it up: a+, great experience, and we plan on dinning again soon.

Took my wife to Bibi'z for our 10th Anniversary. I explained to Zack, the manager, that I had proposed to my wife at this restaurant years ago, and asked for a few special favors to make the night special. He and the rest of the staff were very agreeable and supportive, making some very special arrangements for me. Food was great, service was fantastic, ambiance is perfect. Highly recommend. Thanks again, Bibi'z!

Bibi'z was a disastrous Mother's Day dining experience. Nearly two hours wait with no food - not even bread. Only the soup course made it to the table before we left in exasperation. Several other diners had similar experiences, some even worse than ours.

We went for the Mother's Day brunch as we have previously, and compared to other years it was disappointing. It began with a call from Bibi'z a few days before pressuring us to move up our reservation for Bibi'z convenience. (What about our convenience?) Our waitress poured some coffee and then disappeared -- don't they know they make $ taking orders for mimosas and bloody Mary's? In previous years the food stations were separated so there were separate lines; this year everything was in one place so the line was endless, cramped (it ran through a narrow corridor next to the hostess's sign-in station) and out of control. (Funny, but we noticed that the line in place at the time we had made our original reservation was shorter and much more manageable, so what was the "convenience" for?) This year's buffet had no fresh fruit, no cheese selection, very limited desserts and dry meat entrees. It really wasn't worth the nearly $50 charge or the 20% automatic tip included with the bill. Has something changed? Is Bibi'z under new (and cheap) ownership?

Waiters were earnest and friendly but kept making mistakes (giving people wrong food, no lemon in a drink which was specifically requested, serving next course without removing plates from previous course which caused us to have to hold plates in the air to make table room,etc) Just seemed inexperienced.
Food was outstanding.

We went for Easter dinner which when I booked online did not show a special menu, seating or buffet. I chose Bibi'z because I did not want a buffet. When we arrived I saw that it was only a buffet, but figured it would be fine. Needed to wait at bar for table which also was not a problem, but heard hostess arguing with other staff which seemed rather odd and unprofessional, but again, had high hopes. Ordered some drinks at the bar and paid for them there. We were taken to our table where we saw a yellow caution cone for a wet floor in front of the buffet table. I assumed something had just spilled and it was there while they cleaned up. However, the cone remained the entire time we were there and had to navigate around it to reach the food. Went to get our food where the same arguing hostess spilled a platter on my feet. That was fine as accidents happen however she put her hand directly into the food which was gross. At the end of our meal was when the BIG problem came. I have been to amazing steakhouses where they will include an 18% gratuity for a large party (we were 5 people) but I have NEVER seen a 20% gratuity ever added to a bill, much less a BUFFET! That was absurd and the final straw. We spoke to the waiter who said yes that is customary which we found odd, but said no worries we'll pay for it. He did come back and had the gratuity removed which was nice , but I cannot believe that any restaurant would do this at all -especially a sub par one with a buffet. In addition, got home that night and received a call that they put our $8.13 tip at the bar for the drinks in wrong and actually put it in as $813. I am still waiting for the phone call back telling me they have corrected it as they said they would. I would NOT recommend this place!!

We went for Easter Buffet Brunch and I was dismayed that the restaurant charged an automatic 20% gratuity for a Buffet meal. We were only 3 people in our party and I think that is a lot to charge. I can fully understand if you have a party of 6 or 8 or more where it is customary in a lot of restaurants to do that but not for 3 people. I will definitely think twice before I go there for a special occasion again.

Terrific food and gluten free options. Celiacs should feel comfortable with the consideration and care this place takes. Great cocktails. Attentive and prompt service.

Detractors arent food or service related. Open layout and lack of buffering materials make it noisy even when it is not full. Pedastle tables make even small parties feel cramped on large tables. Oddly shaped restrooms and low wide doors give the bathrooms a weird Alice in wonderland feel.

The food was good but the service was the worst I have ever witnessed. I couldn't even try to fit all the complaints in this small section. Essentially every table had several issues throughout the night. The worst part was they already included a 20% tip on the bill (so maybe this is why they didn't care at all about their customers). I will not becoming back.
