Better than average dining

Went here by accident, as we were looking for a close by restaurant, (we were walking). Service was prompt and the food was pretty good.

I took my friend from out of town here for dinner. What a mistake. I got the chicken with fettuccine. I ate some of it until I noticed THE RAW CHICKEN. Two pieces were about 80% uncooked and one larger piece was 100% uncooked. I showed the server the raw meat and he quickly whisked the plate away without saying... More

Sure, there are many Italian and other styles in Hoboken, but if you want steak go directly here. Great food, well prepared, with good service at a good price. The Steak Frite with blue cheese topping is perfect on each and every visit! And there is always desserts too! Good beer and wine list available. Go!

Went here for dinner and was typical/average bar food. Had a burger. Extremely noisy inside and we were there early afternoon.

I wanted to go here for awhile. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. Kind of hard to describe but everything was just ok. It's expensive though.

It had been several years since I had eaten at the Brass Rail. The hostess and the wait staff were very pleasant and helpful. We ordered Carbonara pizza, Spanish Octopus and a spinach salad. The octopus was excellent. The sauce and the toppings on the pizza were good but the crust was dry and too chewy for my taste. I... More

I attended a business dinner and the food and service was exceptional. Unique touches on common dishes, excellent vegetarian option. It gets VERY loud but it's worth it for the food!

When you are looking for descent food, the Brass Rail is there...It's a little more expensive than many in the area but its a little bit better as well. The appetizers are great and you can make a meal with a friends with 3+ items. Brunch on the weekends is good filling for what ails you...

Went here with family. My pulled pork sandwich (one of the specials) tasted like it was burnt badly. Wife's French onion soup was not good. Son did not like burger and Mom did not like hers either. The service and ambiance were good. Won't be coming again

Just celebrated Mother's Day with my extended family for brunch. Prix fix was reasonable ($25) and the menu offered a variety of appetizers and main courses of breakfast and lunch items. Great Bloody Mary too!
