We celebrated my sister and brother in law's 28th wedding anniversary and started with a glass of prosecco. My brother in law found 2 worms in his glass! Then we had to wait 1 hour to get appetizers which were very easy to prepare (cheese and cold cuts platers!!) and another 20mns to get more bread!! The food is supposed... More

We went one sunny evening and the outdoor area was packed. Given the time we sat inside and enjoyed a very nice meal. The inside is Classic French with dark red leather upholstery and thonet chairs, very charming! The menu was full of choice and this place is known formats mussels. I can't eat the molluscs so went for a... More

All are fresh and yummy: my favorite is in the diablo sauce. Wines and beers are numerous and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and professional. Katrina is... More

This was a great choice. We had a large group and sometimes, restaurants can't handle large tables. They did a great job, service was quick and very attentive. We had the fixed price menu and it was difficult to choice, just because of the diversity of the menu. For starters we had Escargot, done to perfection, with garlic, parsley and... More

If you find yourself in Jersey City's Paulus Hook neighborhood and you like mussels, you really can't go wrong with Bistro's all you can eat Mussel Monday. Huge bowls of mussels with 5 or 6 different preparations - from white wine with garlic to spicy curry - you can try all of them too! Nice choice of wines by the... More

We were the very first customers during a recent lunch at La Source, and our food took a while to arrive. The place filled up within an hour, and it felt that the later customers got their orders quicker. The food was excellent, from foie gras to French onion soup to rabbit fettucine to lamb shank. Only cod with clams... More

This is my second time dining here with my wife and friends, We enjoyed it so much last time we felt compelled to return for Muscle Night, If you don't know what a muscle is, it is a purpleish black bivalve that tastes extremely good with a variety of sauces. Generally you can get muscles in tomatoe sauce at most... More

My wife loves the food here and invited our friends and I to try it. The bar is friendly and sociable, we were seated in the dining area and our waitress was fantastic. I ordered my usual diet coke and naturally inquired if it was bottomless, and it was. My wife and friends ordered a variety of alcoholic beverages and... More

This was my 3rd time there (in 5 years) and my first time reviewing same. I have to say that the food remains consistently great! Simple and no fuss with a air of French and Mediterranean flavors, the prices are not bad, either. My buddy took me there we had a few beverages, saw from old friends I'd not seen... More

We just stopped in for drinks, but the food looked delicious and the staff was very nice. There was a nice selection of cocktails and beer on tap and I really liked the cozy atmosphere. It was hard to get a cab to show up to take us back to our hotel, but the owner/manager was so nice he actually... More
