Set in a beautiful garden, this restaurant boasts a very friendly atmosphere. Attentive waitstaff and definitely trained, you will be greeted with a bottle of water. The menu has a definite French flair and I have to say the chef is doing a pretty good job. From "moules frites" to "steak au poivre", you will find here some real tasty... More

Food was undercooked. My child ate a chicken strip, unfortunately I noticed it was undercooked a little too late. Waiter was rushing us to order, I can just imagine the rush and the carelessness in the kitchen.

We found the service to be excellent - available but not intrusive - providing suggestions and making things appear like water without notice. The food was excellent and served elegantly in a very casual atmosphere. We ate inside - the structure was old but clean and elegant. The bar was full and near by but you were not disturbed with...

I have been here several times, and each time the food has been terrific. On my most recent visit, I had the steak with grilled onions and gorgonzola. Really yummy although it was slightly more well done than I had requested. The arugula/goat cheese salad is absolutely delicious. Even the kids' meals are good (good fries!) and come with free...

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!

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.

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.
