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.

What a pleasant surprise awaited us at lunch at Bibi’s. Great soup, tuna, quiche and, of course, desserts. The service was both friendly and professional. Lots of small plates for sharing and pairing. Not inexpensive, but well worth every dollar!

This is a wonderful spot for a quick late night dinner. the problem is that it is small and when there are noisy people, one cannot hear one's partner across the table. while it is hard to tell loudmouths to keep the noise down, it would be good for business.

The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely. The food was pretty good. Service though was lacking. The waitress was very nice but it took forever to get her to take our order, beverages even took a long time. At the end of the meal we waited a very long time to even get our check.

This was the worst experience for Mother's Day . They abruptly changed it to a 4 course meal without notifying customers and options were minimal. 5 tables were occupied and everyone was waiting for their main course for an hour with no wait staff on the floor. Btw, the server said it was the owner's fault as he changed the menu. On top, they charged 20% tip without informing us. According to the server, the kitchen is separate from the service so they still deserve the tip...pls stay away

WE HAD THE WORSE EXPERIENCE WENT THERE FOR MOTHERS DAY (BIG MISTAKE) THEY WERE UNDER STAFFED BY FAR. THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE WAITING FOR THE FOOD WAS RIDICULOUS. ACTUALLY EVERY PERSON THAT WAS IN THE RESTAURANT AT THE TIME WE WERE WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT WAITING 2 HOURS FOR THEIR FOOD. HAVE BEEN THERE BEFORE AND IT WAS FINE BUT DON'T THINK WE WILL BE GOING BACK AGAIN. NO ONE CAME TO EXPLAIN THE LACK OF SERVICE JUST LEFT YOU SITTING THERE.

We really like BiBi'z and have come here often. The bar and seating area in front is wonderful, and its a great hang out spot for cocktails. For dinner, our server was excellent, but the place was very busy, and we waited a while for our dinner. My scallops were excellent, but the brussels sprouts were not cooked at all. Another plate had mostly uncooked chicken, which was sent back and replaced by something else. Overall, its a great place, just this night was very busy and we had an off night.

We love Bibi'z because our young kids appreciate the food and we get to go out to a nice place with a creative, healthy menu. We ensure we arrive early 5-530. The last 2 times we have come with a larger group 8-10 people, we feel that we get good server attention at the beginning of the meal but the minute the dining room gets a little bit busy, we have to constantly ask for the next thing - whether that is another drink, dessert or coffee. For example, we ordered coffee, but it took 45 minutes to arrive. Such a simple thing - we don't mind waiting for dessert but it's nice to have the coffee to enjoy. And then, ultimately we ended up rushing through coffee with dessert because we waited so long. Also the desserts came out sporadically and 3 out of 7 of them were wrong, 2 times. We loved our server, but didn't see her again after we put in our dessert order. This happened last year on Mother's day (for dinner). Both times we were the first ones in the dining room. We totally appreciate not being rushed, but we also would love the level of service throughout the meal.

Overall, we enjoyed our meal in celebration for our son's 12th birthday with family. The food was good, the dessert was below average. The brownie Sunday was HUGE but the brownies were dry; very dry.

Nice wine and beer list. I paid $14 for an Oregon Pinot. The glass was half full - wine was good, but not a great value in my opinion.

We would go back - great options for gluten free with special care to other allergies, etc. When we entered the music was far too loud even for our teens who love loud music. We asked them to turn it down. They did. It became very crowded and noisy as we were leaving - but such is life on a Saturday Night in Bergen County!

Celebrated a friend's Birthday on Friday night. The Arugula salad was very good, just enough dressing to enjoy the freshness of Arugula and other ingredients. Mini lamb meat balls were good as usual. Me and my friend ordered Lamb chops, which were exceptionally great and the Lamb Shank was very well too. For desert we had ordered the flourless chocolate cake and it didn't disappointed us either. Sp, overall was a great dinner!

Interesting menu with great selections for lunch .Their peach sangria is delicious. Getting a pitcher is perfect for 4 people to share. But price has gone up since last time there. Coffee served in a small insulated carafe, so there's also enough for a few cups -- but again pricey if only 2 people sharing. Nice touch being served with tray of sugar cubes, whipped cream and chocolate chips to add which sort of makes up for the price. Would go back just to try some of the other menu choices that sounded appealing. Must get the lamb sliders again too.

The seating was awkward. There were tables places down a pathway where the customers walked. I don't know who would ever take a table there or why the restaurant would seat people there. Even in the main dining room the tables were placed in odd angles - definitely not feng shui. Noise level was very loud on a Saturday night. Service was excellent. Food was good.

My friend's took me out to celebrate my Birthday. It was our first time at BiBiz. It was lunchtime and the restaurant was quiet, great for conversation. Our server MaKenzie was very pleasant.
We each ordered the Menage a trois, which was a nice size half sandwich the soup of the day, which was a delicious mushroom and a perfect size half salad. Each was prepared to perfection and delicious. One of my friends ordered coffee, which was served with cubes of sugar, whipped cream and chocolate chips--stunning! We chose to share one dessert, which our server gave us each a small plate to take a portion. It was a Jasmine custard, served with berries and whipped cream--delicious! Since it was my birthday, our server also brought out some chocolate squares with whipped cream and a candle. It was so nice. I would definitely come again and recommend this restaurant to friends.

We have been to Bibi'z many times. Each time we go, we remark on how much we enjoy the atmosphere, the food and the service. We especially enjoy and look forward to the home made potato chips! We have introduced many of our friends to Bibi'z and they, in turn, come back on their own with other friends.

I love Bibiz and always have a great experience with my girlfriends there but tonight I got stuck with the worst waiter... service couldn’t have been worse. Couldn’t tell if he even knew what he was doing. When telling us the specials he must’ve had a hard time reading his notes and called one of the dishes “um forget the name but it’s a good sauce” ... many times we were looking for him for drink refills, bread which never came and the check. Probably won’t be back for a while.

I'm not really sure what to tell you about this restaurant. I wouldn't recommend it. Nothing special about it. At least the service was ok. The couple next to us were complaining that a 20% tip was included with their bill and they weren't told about it. They forced the waiter to remove the tip. I'm glad they talked about it because I would have never seen that and would have automatically tipped on the total, as i'm sure a lot of people do. They seemed to be unconcerned if the customers ended up doing that like it's your responsibility to check every line item on the bill and we're not doing that for you so if we get away with it, that's your tough luck. Never heard of a restaurant auto tipping on anything below six people. They also have the provision that if you cancel your reservation within a couple days of a special holiday occasion, they're going to charge you a penalty charge for it anyway. Screw that, that's what having a restaurant is all about. You get cancellations and last minute seatings without reservations.

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!
