The service was excellent and the food was outstanding.
Not your typical Italian restaurant. Tasted as fresh as if you were eating in Italy.
We were celebrating our anniversary on a rainy Sunday night and Osteria Crescendo was a ray of sunshine. The food was truly excellent and the service was exceptional. I will recommend it to friends and certainly be back often.
Food was excellent & waitress was so knowledgeable & great. Chocolate martini was terrible. Very loud inside but nice ambiance. Will definitely be going back again & highly recommend
Unique and delicious food and creative and delicious drinks. Dinner and appetizer portions are not sufficient for the price.
If you want authentic Italian food (the kind you find in Italy), then this is the place to go.
No issues with service or food. Both were excellent However the dining room was uncomfortably warm The other issue is they need to have their espresso machine serviced. The cup I had was watery and without creama It means the machine is not operating at the correct temperature
The atmosphere was both exciting and relaxing. Staff was extremely attentive without being overly so. All of the food my fiancé and I ordered was amazing (we highly recommend the ravioli), and the cocktails even more so. Osteria definitely landed toward the top of our regularly attended restaurant list.
Hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten! Am definitely going back!
Food was excellent. It was full of flavor and the portions were just right!
The service is above and beyond with the knowledge of the way the meals are made. The flavors are awesome. It is an experience to dine here..
Amazing staff and food! Very clean !!
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Great food and atmosphere!
Great cocktails al fresco and beautifully plated food
Went out to dinner for grandma’s birthday. Had spaced out outside seating. Chef was fantastic delivering delicious and authentic Italian food using quality fresh ingredients. We will definitely be back with more family members! Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Calamari fritti was divine.
The food was delicious. Wonderful layers of flavors! We had the mussels and calamari appetizers and both were amazing. My husband and I shared the scallops, cooked to perfection and the Bronzino which was perfect and served with this wonderful Watermelon gazpacho sauce. It was Yum. Our Waitress was awful. Not at all personable. We expected more from this restaurant as it is on the pricey side.
The food is great. Portions are small. Server was not good at understanding the simple needs of the guest. It made ordering very complicated .and btw shouldn’t every restaurant today have skim milk and milk alternative for cappuccino ? Seems like table takes to me . I was embarrassed because I recommended it after 2 good visits.
Probably the best meal I ever had. Service was exceptional. The food was over the top delicious. It was an experience I won’t soon forget. Tommy Voter was attentive and our server Sam was a great. Cannot wait to come back and am telling all my friends to go! 👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Westwood is a great town.
I highly recommend the Italian Job off the cocktails menu. The food was delicious and creative. The bread was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and served with a generous helping of tasty olive oil. The pasta dishes were fresh and perfectly cooked. The Branzino was delicious and worthy of licking the plate. The staff was attentive and polite, but Matthew was a standout. Gave us perfect recommendations and he made you feel comfortable.
Excellent food! Cannot wait to return to Osteria Crescendo!
Great meal and excellent service. The noise level is a bit high but the entire experience was great. It poured as we were having dessert and I am sure they had a reservation for our table, but they never rushed us out. An excellent restaurant close to our home is a real benefit.
We loved every minute of our meal. We literally wanted to lick the plates!
The food was delicious and the staff was excellent. It was a great experience and will definitely go back.
Outstanding cocktails, calamari appy and perfectly prepared pork chop!
Excellent food, terrific service. Will certainly return with friends.
Not your typical Italian restaurant. Food is creative and amazing quality.
One of the single greatest dinning experience of my 43-year-old life! A++
Always great. Calamari proportions were noticeably smaller though.
Well worth the trip. We traveled about 50 minutes to get here for a Father's Day dinner and it did not disappoint. From the moment we got there to the moment we left the staff was very friendly and nice. the drink specials were so good, might just go back for them, Food was delicious!! everyone really enjoyed their meal and my daughter who is a vegan, was catered to as well.
Can not wait to come back up and experience all over again.
Delicious food and amazing service!
We had a great Birthday dinner Great service and food
Great service. Amazing food! Nice ambiance.
A bit pricey
Terrific meal. Best calamari we’ve ever had! Excellent food selection with great tips from the waiters. We highly recommend. We will be back!
Wow incredible food! Just perfect
Another wonderful meal at Osteria Crescendo! I had the gnudi cacio e pepe for a first course and the hanger steak for a main. Both were outstanding. The negroni cocktail I had prior to dinner was well-crafted. I highly recommend this restaurant to foodies and those interested in some thoughtful, delicious food.
My favorite restaurant in bergen county without a doubt!
Bartenders were very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The bar was super busy, but they took it all in stride. They made good recommendations. The gnudi is outstanding, and the cocktails are fun. They know their stuff, and I look forward to going back.
We tried OC because we love Viaggio. The food was outstanding! The oyster special had a foam that elevated the delicacy to a new level. Everything else, 2 pastas, steak, chicken, scallops and 4 desserts had layers of flavor. There was not a morsel left over. The food is a bit pricy and having a bar can make it an expensive night, but the quality justifies the price. This is a top NJ restaurant. We will be back.
