    We really loved our experience here! The restaurant is gorgeous and the view of NYC is awesome. We had the chicken wings, a burger, and the arctic char. All were great dishes. We will definitely be back when in town; this is the best restaurant we have eaten at in Jersey City or surrounding area.

  • Battello - New in Jersey City
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    Tried Battello for the first time on a Saturday evening. Getting a reservation for a group of three for dinner was simple. We were greeted by a friendly host and taken to a table with great views on the water. The restaurant was relatively quiet, but filled rather quickly. The waiter was generally attentive, particularly at the start of the meal. He was eager to answer questions about the menu; mentioning he enjoyed answering any and all questions. I ordered the steak and asked for it medium-well, but was curious about substituting the sweet potato/kale sides for polenta in another dish on the menu. The waiter begrudgingly said he'd check if that would be possible. The appetizer, meal, and dessert arrived fairly quickly and were served at a good pace. My steak was served with polenta as the side so I can assume this wasn't a problem. The steak, however, arrived much less cooked than I asked. Given the substitution request was granted, I opted to try the steak despite it being under cooked for my taste. But, it was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their entrees, but we were in agreement the portions were small given the prices. The portions of the sides were particularly disappointing given the great taste. All in all, Battello seems like a promising place with fantastic views and the potential to be great. Regarding the location, I hope they add additional signage because the place is at the end of a pier in a relatively quiet place and it can easily be overlooked. I would rate it four stars, but shortly after leaving, everyone in my group realized the food was incredibly salty. But, I'd give it another try.

    Don't miss the octopus or tuna starters. The food was excellent. We had short ribs, pork chops and scallops. We were delighted by the tastes of each. The view was spectacular. The menu was such that we all wanted multiple entrees. The bearded waiter charmed us with his knowledge of the menu and the nuances of flavors. Definitely on our return list. It should be on your "must try" list.

    I can pretty much sum up my Battello experience in three words: TRUFFLE HONEY BUTTER That was truly one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted! The waterfront view of the Manhattan skyline was spectacular, and I was in love with the rustic, industrial yet still quite cozy decor. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and recommended and off-menu wine based off of my taste preferences that was just perfect. The entrees were both cooked to perfection with some lovely and complex flavors. Thanks for a great meal, I hope to be back again soon!

    Great view of the skyline and ultra modern ambiance. The food was so-so. My fiancée loved her meal. I had the steak and it was one of the worst I've ever had, waitress wasn't that good. I asked if I could have plain pasta as a side with my steak, offering to pay more if needed, and she said no it was not possible. When the manager came around we mentioned this and he volunteered to correct but it was too late to order the side. Waitress also mixed up my fiancées cocktail order.

    This restaurant has one of the best locations you can find. The view of Manhattan and the Freedom Tower is incredible. The restaurant ambiance is very nice too. Nicely decorated and overall well thought out. But that's where the good things end. The brunch we had was, at best, average. No particular taste and you have to pay for the bread as a side-dish. It wasn't even good bread. As for the waiters, I thought the guy didn't want us to be there. The worst (polite yet aloof) attitude I have seen for a long time. You get much better customer service at a diner. Not sure if I would go back. The view makes you want to go back, but then you remember the food...

    This had all the ear marks of a "pick up" type joint. The food was surprisingly good, and that may be worth a return trip. Between the crowd noise and the live entertainment in the cavernous venue, I couldn't hear myself think- HUGE detraction. If you're a drinker be ready for NYC prices with a soft pour :-(

    Excellent restaurant. One thing - they need a big sign on Washington Blvd. to tell people when to turn to access the parking lot because it is on a pier. It took us a few rides around the "block" before we found the place. However, it was well worth the trip!

    I started at the bar, which I must say has the best.bartenders.ever. The drinks were well made and they had great personalities. The food was pretty decent, I didn't feel like I was getting what I paid for though. Our waiter seemed like he'd rather have been doing something else that Saturday night. I will go again during brunch as I've heard this place can be so much better.

    The view of NYC is what makes Battello special. It is located in the Newport Yacht Club on the Hudson with a spectacular view of the NYC skyline. There is valet parking at the yacht club. We started with the seafood tower for 4 people, good fresh selection of oysters, lobster, shrimp crab and tuna. I ordered the arctic char which was cooked perfectly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Dessert was a homemade blueberry and almond ice cream parfait which 4 of us shared, it was just enough to finish off a great meal. We will definitely return. Best to go on a nice day to enjoy the view.

    Batello boasts a fabulous location directly on the Hudson River across from Manhattan, and the open, high-ceilinged interior has a festive, noisy ambience. The food is just okay and overpriced for the quality. The grilled octopus appetizer is delicious. The other dishes we tried were decent, but underwhelming for the price. The service was friendly but mixed, with multiple wait people hovering around the table at times, yet it took an extraordinarily long to get a glass of wine. This is a fun place, but there is room for improvement.
