Have stayed here several times and used the restaurant. Fine for breakfast but disappointing for dinner. Lacks atmosphere and the food is nothing special for such a hotel. Service is attentive and good.

We got a package deal for our recent stay for our anniversary, where a breakfast buffet came with the stay. We were very pleased with the selections. It isn't a large dining room, but the usual eggs, cereals, pastries, breakfast meats, etc. There was even an omelette station. No pancakes or french toast, but the cranberry almond bread pudding was... More

The bartender was very sweet and attentive. I ordered the hot wings for lunch. They were full of flavor and very interesting.

The Dinning Room at the Short Hills Hilton has a great breakfast than most Hilton's that I have been two. There is a lot of variety and a lot of different kinds of foods and dishes always hot and fresh. The Short Hills Mall is right across the street and I can see why that this is a Five Star... More

A total surprise - my birthday brunch with 22 family and friends. Everything was top notch. Great hostess. They really did a great job - I felt like I was having a special party at home.

We visited the Hilton Short Hills on Hilton points and as such we were given a free breakfast. This buffet and the staff were excellent. The food was laid out very appetizingly and each in its own section. The variety was more than enough for most people for breakfast and if you do not like the eggs that were prepared... More

We had 14 people there for the breakfast buffet. It was OK. If you wanted pancakes or waffles, they had to be ordered from the kitchen. There was only 1 person making omelets to order. The choices were very limited. They do have a private room for parties, which we had & it was nice.

Look no further for a brunch venue you will enjoy so much you will want to return! Not your ordinary brunch- much better! I particularly enjoyed the fresh Seafood selection consisting of Jumbo shrimp cocktail with a delicious twist of chopped fresh dill, stone crabs, caviar and melt in your mouth smoked salmon with all the trimmings. Particularly good made... More

Had the steak and onion soup to start. Food quality was good. Soup was excellent. The steak was good, could have been a little more tender, but for a sirloin - can't complain too much. The sauce was excellent. Service was also very good. Atmosphere was very relaxing, but had a little formality to it. Complements the overall vibe of... More

Formerly dining at the Short Hills Hilton was expensive, heavily French influenced, with exemplary service in a formal setting. Now it is expensive, with a more eclectic menu, somewhat mediocre service in a more relaxed and modern setting. But the food, which was terrific, is now mediocre, at best. A salmon fish in pastry was good, but not great and... More
