Ignore my star ratings - we made a reservation through Open Table, received a confirmation and when we arrived were told that the Restaurant was closed!

Make your own chopped salad option is excellent. However there are no prices marked and you will quite surprised at the prices when the bill comes.

I was surprised by the quality for an in hotel restaurant. Ambiance fit a hotel, but the chef's food quality and flavor blends really rocked. Great surprise when I was after a good functional location for a business dinner.

We used Open Table to make a reservation at The Dining Room at the Short Hills Hilton. We live close by and have been there many times. We wanted a nice place for dinner with an out of town relative. We received a reservation and were set....we thought. We arrive to the Hilton and see a sign at the doorway stating the dining room is closed but the bar is open.
We did NOT want to eat at the bar, we wanted to eat in the dining room. The food is the same but the atmosphere is different.
The Hilton should have made note on Open Table. It was a disappointing experience.

We were only here for lunch because we spent our wedding night at the hotel 25 years earlier. I dropped several hints that it was our 25th wedding anniversary yet no one picked up the ball and did anything which I would have expected at a place of this caliber. Also, my husband and I were itching for a bloody Mary but found out that the bar didn't open until two and it didn't occur to me that we couldn't get a cocktail with lunch at a place that actually has a bar. We both had the create your own salad option and it was delicious.

Lunch service was terrible - the restaurant was nearly empty and the wait staff barely showed up, got the beverage order wrong, never checked on anything. The food was only fair and overpriced - $24 for a casesar salad with salmon, the salmon was delicious, but the salad was just a bit of lettuce with tasteless dressing. Very disappointing.

Food decent but missing brunch items that had been mentioned on the website ie caviar. Limited choices on the brunch buffet items on the occasion of Mother's Day. The waitress was attentive but appeared embarrassed when we mentioned missing items from Brunch. Again, I would lay the blame square on management in this instance. We remember past years, and Brunch these days at the Short Hills is not even close to the variety of food they had. I would have been delighted to spend $70 per person if there was a larger choice of items, but this was a ripoff

We dined there Mother's Day. Hence the exorbitant price per person. The setting, the food, and the staff were very nice but did not justify the price. Dine there on a non-holiday.

The food was yummy, the mac and cheese was absolutely out of this world. The tomato bisque with grilled cheese croutons changed my life. And the service was kind, attentive and entertaining.

My only two things that aren't exactly complaints are that I ordered a Malbec, a wine I order every time I see it on the menu, I fairly certain was a merlot. And the crispy top to the creme brûlée was clearly not freshly prepared. It was cold, like refrigerator cold. However it was still tasty and I ate the whole thing.

Very under impressed with selections for Easter Holiday Buffet, especially for the high price. We've enjoyed Thanksgiving and previous Easter's much more in the past.

Price was too high for what was offered.

Have been here for brunch many years ago and really enjoyed the food and ambiance, went again recently and was very disappointed, will not return. Food was poor quality, the only thing I enjoyed was the omelette, also dress code very relaxed, sweat pants and base ball hats !!!

The actual price for the brunch was not listed accurately on the website when viewing from a phone. We were very surprised when our bill came and it was almost double the price of what the website posted.

Our Anniversary plans got marred by some family losses so we opted to just do a quiet dinner and decided to book here. We have been here before and were shocked to see a full house of diners but pleased also as I think it's an under utilized location for dining. Maybe a great marketing campaign would help attract diners more frequently... it seems to just get diners who are staying at the hotel. It's also across the street from the Short Hills Mall which is open late and offers a variety of restaurant options, therefore; the Hilton must do something to see a benefit in The Dining Room. There are some interesting items on the menu and good wine choices. The staff was friendly but they have to do something with a sudden swell in dining; the high number of diners seemed to throw the staff and service was slow... But despite the slow service we commend Olga and Rebecca for their professionalism... the slow service meant we lost our appetite and we took have our meal home with us. I'd go again but I'm hard pressed as to how soon that would be.

I showed up late, but just after 2pm for lunch and the dining room was closed. They directed me over to a bar type room to have lunch. This room is not appropriate for lunch with clients. I was shocked to see that we could not be served at 2pm. The website says they close at 3pm. This is not what I expected from the Short Hills Hilton.
