I could almost say that the food was a normal diner type of breakfast but after the wait staff ignored me for 20 minutes that made everything even worse...nothing worse than mediocre food served by uncaring, arrogant wait staff in an empty restaurant, literally 3 tables taken out of about 50...and I had to call them to ask them if...

Food is of reasonable quality but the choice is limited. Atmosphere is not so good when there is a game the TV is really loud.

We found Chives as we needed to use a coupon and they participated. The restaurant is in the Crown Plaza hotel and you wouldn't know it was there unless you were looking for it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and seating very comfortable. We ordered the braised short rib appetizer to share ($10). It's served over a simple polenta and... More

This restaurant is attractive and has a very interesting and diverse menu. The food is good and the service is adequate and the prices are reasonable. The problem is that it is empty. We recently went on a Saturday evening - when most restaurants would be packed. We were the ONLY ones there at 7:30!! It is part of a... More

While touring America it is difficult to find proper food - this was an excellent oasis of real food. The staff were also excellent - couldn't do enough for us.

Menu had a good variety, a Nd I had a small plate choice of the short ribs, that was excellent and could be considered a meal. My... More

The Chives is located in the Crowne Plaza hotel in Fairfield, NJ. The breakfast was very good - fresh fruit, oatmeal, variety of hot dishes and an omelet station. The wait staff for the most part is extremely friendly (there was one waitress in the morning who did not seem very nice and at the non-buffet dinner, I had to... More

I was in the Crowne Plaza for business (see other review) for 2 nights. Because we had to work for long days my colleague did not want to go out for dinner. But that wasn't bad at all, because the Crowne Plaze has the Chives restaurant indoors. One night we had beers and bar food; the other night we had... More

Chives is a restaurant in Crowne Plaza Hotel that I have visited about ten times already because staying frequently at the hotel for numerous business trips. It has some character: the main dishes are quite delicious and plentiful (salmon, pasta, chicken, steak), the salads lack variety dreadfully. The ladies in the service are good and honestly trying to earn their... More
