Wonderful dinner on the patio

After spending the afternoon house hunting, we stopped by for a quick bite. Service and food were wonderful. Salads and cheese plate were terrific as was the pasta. The lobster roll was satisfactory. I will definitely return.

A lovely restaurant on Hoboken's main street, but in the slightly quieter end of town, so if you sit outside in the evening it's not too noisy. Bistro style food and a good range of salads, fish, chicken, meat and vegetarian dishes - all tasty. Good atmosphere, good service.

We stumbled upon this place apartment hunting in Hoboken and it was a breath of fresh air from the hustle of NY/NJ. It was relaxed and at ease. Great location and perfect outdoor seating. Great food!

We made a reservation for parent weekend when we visited at the start of school. We had a delicious family dinner. Everyone enjoyed the meal. It was busy and loud and fun. We will be back.

We eat here whenever we are in Hoboken, it is perfect for a casual meal with hearty food, nice wine and good service. The interior is old-fashioned (in a nice way) and cosy, and in the warmer weather there is lots of outdoor seating. Like many eateries in the area, it is very cold inside in the winter. Unfortunately the... More

The weather was perfect and we enjoyed a lovely lunch with friends, we took a nice walk along the water before heading back to New York City. We ate rigatoni that was delicious. Would go back again when we visit Hoboken, New Jersey again.

I enjoyed the outside seating and flowers all around. The food was good and mid priced. I have had their chicken and fries and it was very tasty.

Only dined once but if I lived there, I'd dine there often! the Lobster Roll was very good! Many good options on the menu. If I'm ever back in the area, I will make it a point to go again!

One of our relatives arranged for a post-wedding family/friends luncheon at this charming cafe. Before lunch as folks were milling around and mingling, a choice of brunch type cocktails were offered (Bloody Mary's, Screwdrivers, Mimosa's etc) were offered. The drinks were fine and the service was excellent. Drinks came quickly after ordered and the staff were quite sure of who... More
