    We went to Bistro 880 and purchased the NYE experience. Food was 80 percent seafood with a small salad bar and a roast beef station. Unfortunately, I am allergic to seafood and had the roast beef and salad bar. The dessert bar was amazing. In prior years, the bistro would offer coffee and dessert after midnight. This year, the dessert bar was closed early. As far as the entertainment, the performing band was Stompbox and they were excellent. There were a couple of unruly people on the dance floor and hotel security immediately addressed the issue. Not sure how they gained admittance since they were not seated at a table but rather hanging out at the bar. For a better NYE experience, the establishment should have strictly enforced admittance to those that paid for the NYE experience.

    First this is a hotel restaurant we were there on a Sunday night at six and we were the only people in the restaurant. We had calamari and Brussels sprouts as appetizer the calamari was the size of a dime and the sprouts were barely warm. My wife ordered a glass of wine and the glass had barely an inch of wine in it. The service was great our waitress was very nice and very attentive.

    I worked here in the early 90's when it was the Newark-Fremont Hilton. With the name changed, they have update the restaurant area and it looks much nicer than what I remembered. Came here for Mother's Day Brunch. They had a variety of food items. Take a look at the photo for all the buffet menu, too many to type out, LOL!!! The Prime-Rib was one of the better ones I had, very juicy and tender cooked perfectly. Good flavor au jus sauce!!! You really can't find good prime-rib at a buffet, but this is very good. The King Crab legs were over cook and chewy, but still edible. This is the reason why I didn't give this review a 5 stars. The service was great, kept the mimosas flowing. Oh you can't beat the price.

    Had a great time. Band was outstanding, services was good & so was the food. The only item, which was odd was their version of the Pork sliders. Couldn't make out what, was supposed to be the bun. Wouldn't order that again, but all the other food, was good.

    The place was nice, but you had to stand in line even if you made reservations to pay. And depending on time also to be seated. The food was good, not a lot of variety. Mothers Day has more to offer. Seafood is way too cold icy. Made hot butter cold fast. They had make your own omelets and waffle stations. There are tons of little desserts. Coffee, mimosas, juices, etc. It was nice but lacking in more choices of food, like on Mothers Day. And it's more than just 40 bucks. They add in gratuity and tip. Overall still was nice place, service, and food was cooked well.

    Love the food, service.. the dinning area was elegant. The band D’Naturalz was awesome! Love the music! Wish they have them perform there more! Was a fun awesome night… without the band it was just so so, they brought life to just a plain dinner. Was totally awesome!
