My family and I had a fantastic time with Beyond the Plate Food Tours in Jersey City! Alessia is a wonderful guide and host - she is so passionate about JC and its diverse food scene. The food and cocktails on the tour are absolutely INCREDIBLE. We can't wait to go back to all the restaurants we stopped at.

We did this tour in September 2020 and felt very safe the entire time - Beyond the Plate makes sure to follow all COVID-19 precautions. If you're looking for an afternoon where you can relax and enjoy amazing food in a thriving city, look no further than Beyond the Plate. The portions are generous, so make sure you come hungry!

Despite having to delay during the pandemic, they did a great job keeping us informed of alternatives. They were always very responsive and friendly. We did the tour last weekend and it was a ton of fun. The tour guide (Melissa) was phenomenal. Not only did she make sure that we were served promptly, but she also provided us key insights on the restaurants and the area. Oh...and she's a heckuva nice person too.

Our group of eight thoroughly enjoyed our Red Bank food tour with Alessia. It's obvious that she loves what she does and sharing her experiences with food with others. We started strong with a NJ classic breakfast sandwich, and then had Indian, American/Mediterranean, and an incredible custom cupcake desert. Alessia even added a new place on fly when the owner offered to accommodate us (Please note that Alessia asked if we were up for it. It was great!) We also had craft beer and some nicely paired cocktails. We really enjoyed hearing from some of the chefs along the way. You will definitely get enough to eat so don't worry about dinner that night. We love food tours to learn about a place, get the inside scoop on where we might want to eat later, eat great food that day, and have a great time doing it. Beyond The Plate checked all of the boxes for us.

Everything! We had a great time with Alessia for my friend’s bachelorette! Alessia was fun, kept us laughing and taking pictures. She made us feel like we were her VIP's traveling around Red Bank with her. We had a great variety of food, everything tasted great and the restaurant choices were unique. I live in the area and still got to see all new places I didn't even realize were in Red Bank. The tour was also very well planned, the tables were set and waiting for us, food was prompt and hot and we never had to wait for a drink. Definitely would recommend, I’ve already started convincing my friend and family that we need to do another tour this summer!

We had so much fun on this tour. The weather was perfect, and the food was so good. Heather was a great tour guide who gave us some information about the history of jersey city. We really enjoyed being able to sample food and drinks from different restaurant. We also got background information on the restaurants, owners and food. If you are looking to do something different this tour is a MUST DO!!!!

The food tour was more than I expected. The restaurants had delicious food. Our tour guide not only introduced some of the restaurant owners to us and we learned the inspiration behind opening their restaurants. During the walks between restaurants, we were treated to a very informative history of the town, its people and the buildings. We even had a chance to sneak into a few shops that weren’t on the tour. Much more food than we anticipated too! Will do it again. Great way to spend a few hours. Highly recommend.

Great tour led by Kyle. The establishments were extremely accommodating, especially to dietary needs. Kyle knows the area well and we got a history tour along with the restaurant reviews at each location. Truly a worthwhile experience. Can't recommend Beyond the Plate and Kyle highly enough. A three hour tour with stops at four very different, but all excellent, restaurants.

We did the Beyond the Plate Food Tour - Jersey City Food Tour Taste of the Heights and it was a great experience! We were able to visit five small businesses that each had their own unique and high quality food. Aside from the food being amazing, it was great to spend time with the business owners and learn more about their businesses. Alessia was a great tour guide and even gave recommendations for eateries that were not on the tour. We were definitely full by the end of the tour! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area or even a local to JC!

My friends and I wanted to celebrate my birthday and what better way to do it than over delicious food! I also wanted to get a better idea of the Jersey city food scene so this tour was the perfect opportunity. Our tour guy Kyle was amazing and super friendly! We went to 4 different venues, each serving different types of food ranging from Italian appetizers, freshly made pasta, pizza, wings, Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, guacamole and chips and Mexican chicken & waffles taco. And of course, yummy cocktails, beers and drinks are included. They serve you a recommended and/or signature drink at each venue. My friends have never done a food tour before and they’ve had a great time. I would highly recommend booking a tour with them!

We joined Heather (Beyond the Plate) for an evening of fun and food with a small group of work associates. Heather was a great host; she knew a ton about Jersey City and all of the restaurants. The mix of stops was great from Brazilian, to Mexican, to Pizza, and even a Craft Brewery. All of the restaurants were very welcoming and happy to share their small plates and answer any questions we had. There will be a little walking on the tour. I think this is perfect for a group of 6 to 10 people. They can probably accommodate more, but I enjoyed being able to sit and chat with my whole party during each of the stops.
