The Stern and Bow has become a new fave restaurant in the area. We live in Westwood so it’s super convenient. The food is amazing - so fresh and excellently prepared. I’m a huge fan of the Thai curry seafood bowl! The oysters are scrumptious! The drinks are fantastic snd beautifully presented. The ambiance feel like your on a cruise ship. It’s feel like a restaurant at a resort area like Palm Beach. We love it and can’t wait to come back.

First of all the staff was great. The owner stopped by our table and he was very nice. We all enjoyed our food as there aren't many places to get fresh seafood for lunch in that part of Bergen County.

The drinks and service were great. The food, on the other had, was mediocre at best. My lobster roll was inedible and the other food was barely serviceable. I will not be returning.

It was extremely loud that I had to lean in to hear the person across from me speak. Had the salad pizza which the crust was hard and dry. Clams on the half shell were good also the hanger steak. Didn’t like that the person next to me was drunk and constantly on her cell phone.
