I recently had a business dinner at this restaurant with 7 other people. We were seated quickly and the dining atmosphere is really relaxing. I ordered a shrimp dish which was very good. And the wait staff is excellent - they catered to our every need. It's close to the Hytatt Regency Jersey City which was convenient for my group.... More

This place is fabulous. If you can get there, GO! We had a party of eight and we all had the signature entrees. The service was excellent, the drink was right and the food was out of this world.

Absolutely love this place! Only a short walk from our hotel, and in a nice section near the water, the restaurant is warm and inviting as you walk in. We were quickly seated over at the bar, and were treated to an evening of delicious Italian food by friendly staff, and even had the pleasure of meeting the owner/manager, who... More

Proximity to the waterfront is surpassed only by the excellence of their dishes and they sport the best "dirty martini" in Jersey City.

Really good mushroom ravioli. The place is a hidden jem. It is on the expensive side but worth it for special occasions. The waitor paired our meal with good wine. Overall good ambience, service and food!

We recently dined here with a group of 10 including 2 children. The wait staff was very accommodating and friendly; the atmosphere quiet and elegant. Appetizers included pumpkin risotto and squash ravioli-both were delicious, probably the best I've ever tasted. We enjoyed various main dishes-fillet mignon which "Melted in my mouth" and the short ribs which were full of flavor.... More
