    Our second time was much better than the first, and I want so much to love it here, but there is still a way to go. For starter I had the crab cake, which was fine - good sized portion but a little heavy on the pepper. For main I had the skirt steak which was lovely. But it was served on a bed of weird bland pasta-like stuff. Very strange and zero flavor pointless carbs. And also disappointed about the lack of side dishes available to redeem this - fries or salad. No sautéed or roasted vegetables. Boring. We didn't have dessert, we thought all options seemed heavy and unappetizing. That said, experience was better than last time, so hopefully for our next third visit the improvement trend will continue.

    Fantastic evening at Battello - went to celebrate a sibling birthday and everything was amazing! The food, service, ambiance were all outstanding. Terrace dining a must if weather permits - the views are spectacular. The table enjoyed the chef's tasting - each course was better than the last! Standout menu items were the grilled octopus appetizer & cavatelli with peas, crabmeat, and panchetta. Nice wine list. Service was excellent.

    The space is gorgeous and the food's excellent. The downtown Manhattan skyline view at sunset is breathtaking. I highly recommend the grilled octopus (so tender) and the English pea cavatelli with jersey corn and lots of bacon. The raw egg yolk made the sauce richer but not too cloying. The lump crab cake was huge for an appetizer but somehow lacking in flavor. The crudo del giorno was a bit disappointing with a few slices of smoked salmon. The pork porterhouse, however, was kinda tough, but I love the enoki mushrooms. The prawn scampi my friend ordered was a bit underdone, though, as to be almost sashimi-raw. The halibut was fresh and clean-tasting. The three of us all loved the toasted almond ice cream and blueberry parfait. De-lish!

    This is really a very special and great place. We've been there several times now and we have the feeling it's getting better and better. We've been there with friends and had all different menu items and everyone loved what they got. Food is really delicious. What made the evening perfect was our waiter (unfortunately don't recall his name) who was very professional and very polite. We haven't been rushed at all although it was a busy Friday night and we spent 2.5 hours at our table and simply had a great time! And of course we enjoyed the spectacular view on Manhattan skyline across the Hudson River. Prices are really fair for what the restaurant has to offer. Thank You!

    Discovered this place one night walking along the Jersey City River walk. Came in for a drink and they had a band playing (reservoir Doggs) so we stayed for more. Loved the atmosphere and decor- knew we needed to come back and try the food. Looked expensive so waited to go during restaurant week. Everything was amazing!! Service (Leo was so friendly and helpful), food, ambiance, the view of the Marina with all the huge yachts and the city in the background, just gorgeous!

    I booked my reservation b/c it is Hudson Restaurant week, typically the restaurants honor the pre-fixe on the weekends. No where in booking did it say that this was not valid on the weekends, until we were seated and I asked our waiter that we were told they only participate during the week. Our waiter was OK, and our food was good. Our entrees took quite a bit of time to come out, the manager came over and apologized but yet he didn't offer us anything, that I thought was pointless, then why come over and say anything in the first place if you aren't going to compensate us at all? Will I be back, possibly but I'd rather try another restaurant first than hoping the customer service is better the next time around.

  • Built on Manhattan's skyline
    OnTheEdge
    Dined on 7/29/2014
    I was staying nearby, and the reviews seemed to indicate something worth to visit. However, besides the view over to Manhattan's skyline, there was nothing good to report. Having only one word to characterize the place, I'd say pretentious. The waiter was arrogant, little attentive, and slow, maybe because I was a single white male (which he was not). Most dishes come with meet/bacon - not good for a pescatarian. The open wine is of low quality - not in favor of single dinners who don't want to consume a whole bottle by themselves. The menu is very limited, and since there was no suitable main course, I had two starters. Both were reasonable, but nothing worth to write about. Next time I am in Jersey City, I definitely won't return.

    Went for brunch a few Sundays ago. Battello has a beautiful location, right on the pier. It's a big, soaring, warehouse-type space. Not a huge brunch menu. I had the summer beet salad, which was a very abstract version, and very small (for $13.00). Also had a side of the glazed pork belly, which was good, but not sure I would run back.

    It is a plus to have a parking lot in Jersey City. It is pushing the envelope to charge for parking especially when a meal averages $100 per person. We requested either outdoor or water view seating-multiple times when making and confirming the reservation. Instead we were offered the most interior table they could find. The wait staff is incredibly slow. Pleasant but slow Requests had to be made 3 times each before we received those items. Our waiter was reminded twice that there were 2 birthdays being celebrated. No candles were in the desserts. Otherwise, the food was outstanding. Chef DePersio is one of the best The views of the NY skyline are magnificent. Get your act together and this could be on everyone's "Best Of" list.

The brunch menu was a combination of salads, burgers and egg dishes. Everyone enjoyed their food, would like to see omelets added to the menu.

    We had a 9pm reservation, but were not seated until 9:45pm. My fiancé and I hung out at the bar which was fine, but the hostess should have at least as a gesture comp'ed us the $10 valet parking or given us a couple free drinks for the inconvenience. Other than that it was a nice night out and the service was good.

    First time at Battello, it is a very beautiful location, we went for lunch. The lunch menu is very limited but the food is good. The only downfall was our lunch order came out about an hour later. The waitress was very friendly and apologetic and comped our desserts. So a thumps up for attentiveness!
