We have dined here many times. This time was a disappointment. The food seemed overcooked, the Brussels sprouts were mush. While not crowded there was only one waiter, therefore our Waters were not refilled, nor were utensils replaced after appetizers. The menu which is generally varied seemed truncated.

The bar activity was boisterous and interfered with the diners experience.
Service was FAIR.
The bread is awful, reheated and stale cheese roll.
The new chef, however, created exceptional creative and delicious food.
Salad with duck confit was copious and delicious.
The scallops with Brussels sprouts and butternut squash purée was outstanding.
The Black Forest creme brûlée was beyond our wildest expectations. Unbelievably fabulous.
We’d stopped coming here bc after many delicious meals there’d been a change in chef - for the worse and we were sorely disappointed. Not this time. I believe the chef is new. What a pleasant surprise. We took a chance as it was restaurant week. So glad to say that we will happily return.

The food was pricey for the portion. The ambiance was fair.
There was a convention or meeting that walked past the restaurant a few times, the were loud and disruptive.

First time here. On our way from upstate and it was an open table eatery. Drinks took a long time to get to us. The waiters need better training but ours was very polite. Very reasonable prices and the lamb chops and shank were very good. The polenta was perfect and the salmon was served with a crispy skin which is excellent.

It's inside the hotel and easy to get to. Plenty of parking and we will return again when we are in the area

We ordered a Caesar salad to split for starters. It was a major fail & we thought it would be a bad omen for the meal. It had practically no dressing. When the waiter asked how it was we asked for more dressing and wondered where the shaved cheese was. It turns out that disc on top of the salad which looked like a wafer was cheese flavored. It tasted like Cheetos. Ugh.
But we definitely enjoyed the main meal. My husband loved his lamb shank and my salmon was cooked to perfection. And it had all vegetables, a plus since I am trying to cut down on carbs.
Service was very good. We were there on the early side so not a lot of people having dinner, so nice and quiet.
Being in a hotel it is a little on the pricey side.

Always consistent. A quiet spot for business or pleasure for lunch or for dinner. Service is pleasantly given without hovering or rushing you. Food is varied, delicious and well plated. I enjoyed the poached shrimp salad. Good portion. Did have to ask for additional dressing but everyone’s taste varies. Prices reasonable. Great location. Easy on and easy off the Thruway or Route 9. Plenty of nearby parking including handicapped. Covered walkway to mid-lot.

I went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday.
As we entered we passed the bar where there was a group of people at the bar that was talking loud, but after a few minutes quieted down.
The atmosphere was quiet, the decor was nice and it was not overcrowded. The host, Francisco, took our orders and shortly thereafter we got a complimentary small plate with two types of hummus and tapenade along with a choice of small breads.
We ordered for entrée rib eye with the bone in and lamb chops. We paired the entrées with a Segura Viudas rosé cava. the entrées were well presented with some vegetables on the side and the cava was excellent.
We enjoyed the dinner and the service was very good.
We have been at this restaurant previous times and the food, place and service are very good.
We highly recommend this place.

Good food and service. Menu has changed since I was there last and the grilled octopus was a disappointment. Sea bass was good but not great. My wife had rack of lamb which she enjoyed very much but was disappointed with grilled romaine as an appetizer.

Father’s Day “Barbecue” not as advertised. Outside patio was not completed and hamburgers etc...pre-prepared buffet style and not at all good. Shrimp cocktail rubbery, salads not freshly and overall food very disappointing.

The staff and the hostess only bright spot, as service attentive. Overcharged child as an adult “by accident”. However, the hostess apologetic and kind, she seemed to know things not up to par...a keeper, as she was the only thing right about the restaurant for this Father’s day.

Hard to recommend or return. Used to to much better, even with Groupon years ago. So that much more disappointing paying full price!

The deconstructed Caesar salad was great. We had the duck and the chicken both of which had a passing resemblance to food. The waiter was unable to express how the chicken was made which resulted in one of us ordering the duck. The duck was over done and dry likely because it had been sitting around for hours. The drinks were good. If I had to eat here again I would order the salad and stick to the simplest things on the menu.

Food was delicious as always. Enjoyed the new menu but missed a few options from the old menu!

My only complaint is that we were not in the usual dining room but in room next to it.

First I didn't realize it was in the Doubletree Hotel but then I figured some hotel restaurants are beautiful so that's fine. It was't even a restaurant. It had a 3/4 wall dividing it from the main thorough fare where there was a bar with tons of people so it was very loud. The lobby had a nice atmosphere but the restaurant was nothing special. Our waiter was lovely but when we told him we had a show to see if they could rush the meals, he said it's very busy I doubt they can! the food was ok. Definitely would not go back.

We had always greatly enjoyed the food and menu here. Unfortunately, they have a new chef and the menu is as disappointing as the food is cloying and poorly conceived.
We started by receiving cold bread served with a tasteless hummus, an over salted olive tapenade and a tomato bruschetta which was tasty.
Our salads consisted of a lovely garnish around the outside of the plate and a mound of arugula and kale dumped in the middle with no other elements incorporated.
For an entree, I ordered the chicken dish. The chicken itself was dried out with an oily sauce all over it. There was a mushy red cabbage dish that was overly sweet. The meal was inedible. Our very competent waitress was attentive and quickly offered to replace with a dish of my choice. I ordered the shrimp dish minus the bread pudding side which sounded awful.
The shrimp was quite good. There was an overwhelmingly rich sauce served on the side- thank goodness- thus, avoidable.
My partner had the short rib dish. It was highly salted and also served under tons of a rich sauce.
For dessert, we both ordered the flourless chocolate offering. It needed something to break up the chocolate- either a vanilla ice cream or a whipped cream.
Overall, we were disappointed in the meals but Simone, our waitress deserves high praise
Unless there is a change in chef we won’t be returning.
Sad for that as our previous meals had been excellent.

Always a pleasure to dine at Bistro Z. Usually quiet enough to speak to your dining companions and lively enough to know you're not the only ones in the restaurant. Excellent food, especially for hotel dining and a very lovely and eclectic menu.

This was the fourth time that we ate in this restaurant. This visit will be our last. The food was so salty it was not edible. When we mentioned this to the server, she brought us a side of some vegetables. i ordered Duck and there were only two slices. last time there were five. When questioned, the server told me that it was cut thicker this time. I directly asked if there was a new cook and she said no. Sad to leave a good restaurant, but there is something wrong here.
