Lovely Little Spot

The owners are wonderful it a cozy spot and BYOB. The escargot was awesome and their savory crepes are really good. It gets packed in there so you may want to try to make a reservation. Also its cash only.

This a small cozy place - tables right next to each other, no private conversations here! BYOB and cash only. We were graciously welcomed by the owners. The food was great.The waitress was perfect. We had escargot, seasoned perfectly and tender. There was an octopus special, delicious sauce. Warm fresh bread. Had a Moroccan dish with couscous, lamb sausage, and... More

You’ll feel instantly at home after receiving a warm and hearty welcome from the owners and staff. “It’s nice to see you again” was heard throughout the evening. Madame Claude Café is the perfect neighborhood retreat where you are encouraged to linger and enjoy the evening. It’s a small, intimate, unpretentious space with a stamped tin ceiling and only 14...

This is an amazing place. I found it by chance while searching the internet for places to eat in Jersey City. The menu posted online looked promising, but I was still unsure of what our experience there would be like. That is, until we stepped in the place. It's a cute little French cafe, easy to miss if you don't... More

What more could you ask for on New Year's Eve - at $65 for a three course prix menu with live jazz music MC was a tasty bargain. We had the cured salmon, filet mignon, and flourless chocolate cake. All three were delicious. Although the restaurant seats no more than 26 people, the kitchen managed to serve everyone at a... More

Nice location for an intimate dinner in bistro like setting. Food never disappoints and Thursdays have the added bonus of live music. Bring your favorite French wine and indulge.

Interesting crepe selections with filling ingredients based on national cuisines such as Norway, Greece, and Morocco. Omelets were over cooked and uninteresting. Fresh squeezed OJ and lemon aid a nice treat. Warning, BYOB and cash only.

The outside seats at M Claude will have you calling in to schedule back surgery. They are really awful. It amazes me to see restaurants not caring about client comfort. I stopped going because of the seats. I live just up the hill. I used to enjoy this place -- the salmon benedict is great on a Sunday morning with... More

This tiny French bistro is charming and fun. The tables are packed in tightly so don't imagine your going to spend a quiet, romantic evening with your date. Rather, come here for the lively atmosphere and some delicious French food. Definitely plan on going on a Thursday night for the gypsy jazz music from Manouche Bag. Remember to bring cash... More
