Diner Reviews
  • "Kassie, Joe & Allison were welcoming &efficient. Had a fun time 4th of July & FIREWORKS were added bonus. They deserve to succeed. Could use better signage to find!"

  • " First the cocktails, we ordered 2 diff drinks only to find they were nothing more than fruit juices.. there wasn't more than 1oz of alcohol in each cup. Stick w/ the beer/wine although may not have your first choice. On to the apps, we ordered the seafood tower which took over 45 minutes to come out, a few oysters and clams a couple shrimps than a bowl of soggy mushed crab meat and some tuna tartar (they are actually out of cocktail sauce!) My swordfish came it was lukewarm at best and didn't have the peach glaze on it as the menu suggested. cranberry juice for a child is $6 which is fine if you didn't have to wait 30 minutes for it. This place has so much potential if they fixed the service/food the sky would be the limit here."

  • "We had heard of Batello under the previous owners (Michael Anthony's), but had never been there as it had garnered bad reviews. However when ownership changed the feedback and reviews changed as well so we thought we would investigate further. We were not disappointed. The drinks were good, the bread was fresh and the food and dessert were excellent. We were able to sit by a window and the view was spectacular. We will definitely be returning."

  • "Great view of Manhattan. Loved the food and wine list. Will definitely go again."

  • "We enjoyed our meal with good views of the city, even as the put us in the back. My cocktail was a bit disappointing as it was mostly ice for a Manhattan price. The mojito however was perfect The main course was amazing albeit a bit small with the accoutrements being even smaller, we had to have dessert. It was a great experience overall."

  • "Went this past weekend with my wife and as we were looking over the menu, we were handed a bill with a credit card and a thank you from the waiter for coming in :-). Once we cleared that up, my wine came and it was bad. their super Tuscan tasted as if it had some fizz to it. The waiter replaced it and the next one was fine. The food and service was also fine from this point on, but one observation i made was that the owner literally went to each and every table to ask how the service/food was and literally never even looked our way. We ordered dessert thinking that maybe he would come over but it never happened. I also found it funny that Opentable told me that i never showed up for my reservation which also was a first for me???????"

  • "Battello has a beautiful, open space concept that is right on par with its beautiful marina view. The food was tasty, but could have had more depth and range... but the wine list made up for the food menu playing it safe."

  • " Couldn't taste any crab in the crab burger the topping was so overpowering. Waiter interupted our business conversation and didn't seem happy to be there. Why did they move the bar?"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We ordered a bottle of wine and appetizers , 5 minutes later the waiter returns, he asked if we were ready to order dinner, he was not polite. It was 9 pm on a Friday night. He rushed us the entire evening, he was not pleasant.. he was annoying ... Not sure if I will return .. Prices are high for what you get .. I guess you're paying for the view.."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We went for lunch. The menu was fairly limited and not particularly inspiring. The location is very nice, with seating with a view of the marina."

  • "very expensive for what was not great food or service. The view was incredible and the vibe was good, but I won't be returning soon"

  • "I visited Battello with family for brunch on Sunday. The doors were open the breeze was awesome. The food was excellent. We had the the beat salad, shrimp, and fried calamari for apps. I had the Battello burger which was awesome and filling. The carton boat beer was the beer of choice. The experience was great. It felt like a mini vacation. Definitely will be back this Saturday night to check out the lounge."

  • "Brunch took 3.5 hrs. we waited 45 minutes to get our first drink. the waiter took our order after about 1.15 hrs. food came about 2 hrs of being there. dessert took about 30 mins to order and another 45 minutes to actually get it. the location is beautiful but service is horrendous. If you are hungry don't waste your time going there."

  • "One of the best restaurants in Jersey City I can certainly say without a doubt. I was so excited when Battello was first opening and they certainly did not disappoint. Waitstaff are extremely attentive and friendly. Food is absolutely spectacular! Try the crabcake, zucchini and artichoke insalata, ricotta gnocchi, and get dessert too! Cannot wait until my next experience there. Five stars hands down!"

  • "airy, open, attractive design; food was very good, though took a long time to get main course; parking is an issue - have to park at the westin, but they do validate. overall a very good experience."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The portions too small for the prices charged. Don't mind spending $28 to $30 for a main dish but not enough on the plate. ordered grilled octopus app and was all potatoes and zucchini and artichoke salad which only had 3 tiny strips of zucchini. Also, since portions were so small and did not come with any veggies on the plate was surprised there were no sides to order. The kitchen did however make us a side order of veggies when we asked them. Wait staff was very nice and no complaints about them. With all the new restaurants around will probably try others before thinking about going back."

  • "The view is really wonderful, but the food was just OK."

  • "The restaurant has a great view of Manhattan since it's right on the water. The food is seafood-focused and was pretty good, although a bit pricey. "

  • "Had an excellent dinner and love the new restaurant since it changed over. Beautiful redesign! Our waiter Edward, was very accommodating! Cannot wait to go back."

  • "Beautiful skyline coupled with good food makes for winning combination . Service was spotty and menu us a rad limited but all in all a very pleasant way to do end a meal. There's also a lounge with live music that makes for a huge plus here"

  • "Everything we ate was fresh and delicious. The cocktails were great, very unique. The space is beautiful. Can't wait to come back and sit in the veranda area with the view."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Food was excellent. Service was polite and friendly. Wait staff was informative without being pushy. Very knowledgeable of menu. Drink and wine menu was extensive and well curated. Views and ambience as well as interior decor and vibe were spot on. Great place for dinner or drinks! And right near the newport path or a short walk along the water from Hoboken."

  • "Second time is a charm as we were wowed by food and service yet again! If you haven't been to Battello yet - you have to make it a "must do" on your list!"

  • "Service definitely needs work. Our waitress was not exactly the friendliest."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "this was my first time at Battello and, the service was okay - the food was okay, nothing I would return for. I requested a table closer to the view and was told it was reserved. in the time I was there that area was pretty empty and the table I requested to be changed too was never filled. I will not be recommending this space. It would probably be better to advertise a prefix brunch way too expensive for no reason other than the view I was unable to see. "

  • "Brought visitors from Argentina here for dinner. Food was very good, service attentive and friendly but not fawning. Wine list is carefully chosen and affordable. Of particular note, grilled octopus appetizer and halibut entree had my guests raving; gnocchi and francobolli pasta courses were excellent also. Very attractive space, tastefully decorated, it is a little loud but the location, spectacular views of the NYC skyline, and overall ambiance were worth the occasional "lean in" to hear. Looking forward to returning soon!"

  • "From the front door arriving to paying the check we were so impressed. Came in for Sunday brunch and the music walking in made us feel like it will be a good place to spend for brunch. Our server was Nicole an she served us for brunch like we were at a NYC top rated restaurant. Food was good and so was my Bloody Mary. I love th uniforms and just the atmosphere overall. Manager visited our table twice and the second time we stopped her to congratulate her in the new space. She was so classy, well dressed and just a delight to speak with. We hope to try you for dinner this week!! "

  • "We really wanted to love Battello, but it just didn't rise to the occasion. Loved the venue and the view and staff were friendly. Great for a date night. Unfortunately we found the dishes on the bland side, portions were adequate but dessert also quite bland to the point that we didn't want to finish them (what!?). We did the Chef's tasting so tasted a variety of the menu but were fairly underwhelmed and nothing hit the spot. We live nearby, so would consider trying again at brunch, which perhaps is a safer bet and in that case could imagine giving 4 stars (instead of 2)."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "One word says it all: Fantastic! The view can't be beaten, the owner was more than gracious, and the waiters solicitous without being overbearing. Then there's the food: the cucumber and artichoke salad and the gnocchi are to die for! My "date" had Haddock served on a bed of perfectly cooked assorted vegetables. And, even if you don't eat bread, do manage to taste the creamy infused butter:) A delicious bottle of wine topped it off—no need for dessert (which was a good thing as they had just lost a renowned pastry chef! I'm sure this caliper of restaurant will quickly attract another."

  • "Went with some friends and everything we ordered was excellent. We all had seafood and the preparation and presentation was fantastic. I had the sea bass and it was delicious. Looking forward to going back to enjoy the view and try some other dishes on the menu."

  • "We had a cousin coming into the NYC area for a short visit and thought this would be a good place to see the NY skyline and have a nice dinner. It was a successful meal on both counts. The servings, while small, were presented very well and the flavors were delicious. A bit pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion."

  • "Can't say enough about this place. We were literally there from 8 pm until 1 am. Started with an hour or so at the bar. High Tide was my favorite. Then sat down for dinner and had a mix of apps from the bar and regular menu, followed by entrees for our group of six. Three great bottles of wine later, we moved to the lounge room and kept the night going. Staff was friendly and on point"

  • "Been there for lunch and dinner. Food is a big improvement over the previous owners, great view and good service. Only complaint is the lunch menu needs more choices - very limited. Maybe take some of the dinner choices and downsize them."

  • "It is no longer Michael Anthony's The decor is changed but not that much.... The menu had few choices the night I was there. It was passover, they tried to help... I didnt have wine... Came to about $100 2 salads 2 entrees 2 coffees Had read some reviews that were not very good but decided to try it anyway... My girlfriend loved the restaurant, the atmosphere, the decor... the food... and the view... So... Its a nice place to come for a night out. Nothing to rave about, didnt have anything to complain about although it seems pricey for chicken and halibut... Great place to go once the weather is even nicer to sit outside or have the windows open... for the view..."

  • "We spent Good Friday and our 5 yr Anniversary at Battello's. It was a wonderful evening. We hit the seafood tower, prawns scampi, and halibut. All were fantastic. The risotto that came with the prawns was the best I've had. For desert we split the beignets and Irish car bomb Sundae- both were great and the right portions- not too heavy. We will be coming back a lot. Parking was a bit tricky to figure out. Oh and by far the best views of lower manhattan you can get! "
