  • "I went to Battello with my fiancé, parents, and future in-laws as it was recommended to us as a potential rehearsal dinner location. We all loved the food, the view, and the overall atmosphere. We'll be booking!"

  • "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."

  • "This place is really amazing and the view across the Hudson River on Downtown and Midtown Manhattan is breathtaking! But it's not only the location, at our first visit, also the service was really exceptional and the food delicious. Don't expect a huge menu though but the items on it are special and interesting. And the prices are really fair for what you get! We will be back for sure!"

  • "Went to Batello's for the first time on a recommendation from a friend. Had a beautiful view of NYC from the outdoor patio where we ate brunch. 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. I will definitely return for dinner to enjoy the view at night."

  • "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."

  • "This restaurant was amazing. Would have been happy with only the magnificent view and decor, but the food was stupendous!!! A bit pricey, but sooooo worth it."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Place was a little annoying; 1- maybe it was the table next to us. 2- the portions on the smaller side. 3- some worker that decided to talk with table next to us during each serving of course with his back/butt towards us👎."

  • "A lot of things in this place have to be tweaked. I dont think the wait staff... has gotten up to speed for a place that could be great considering the location. Took a long time to get the ordered bottle of wine. The waiter didnt seem confident. Food took a long time to come The Oysters... were not that good the Shrimp seemed like they were prepared hours ago. I have been here 3 times... in 6 months... so not the first time"

  • "2nd time I ate at Battello-- and it was not disappointing 2nd time either-- from moment I entered the staff made me fell very comfortable and was given a table for the 4 of us as my open table request--- the waiters were great and the food was good. but the view of lower Manhattan is just unbelievable. The food was served in a timely manner and I didn't feel rushed even though the restaurant became packed-- in all I would eat there again and would and have recommended Battello to my friends."

  • "Great view. Good selection of draft beers. Brooklyn and Bronx brewery across the Hudson river in NJ at Battello. Outstanding Host and Server. We will certainly go back though the food portion is a bit small. I would add Salad for free with main course meal like Olive Garden"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Food is very well done from the seafood starters, crudo that esca would be jealous of and the finishing off with pasta and proteins. Share a large pasta or have the individual and try the steak, pork or fish protein main. Wonderful time and will return again and again."

  • "Had a lovely evening here recently to celebrate my birthday. First visit to this restaurant but will definitely go back. One glitch, our entrees took ages to come, but our desserts and coffee were comped. Our waitress was exceptionally attentive. Husband, daughter and I all enjoyed everything we ordered - smoked salmon, beet salad (beautiful!), scallops, francobolli, barramundi, and 3 desserts! When I asked about the rose, the waitress offered to bring me a sample to try - it was a very generous sample and delicious! The view is of course beautiful, and with the sun setting, the colors reflected on the buildings in lower Manhattan kept changing. A beautiful birthday dinner evening!"

  • "Sat on the pier overlooking FiDi and sailboats. Food was all awesome. Very new and edgy plates would compare to 30 acres but better sized portions. Live music. Great bar scene."

  • "A wonderful place for lunch with great food service and a billion dollar view. It's a terrific addition to the growing Jersey City quality food scene."

  • "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."

  • " 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 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 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."

  • "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."

  • "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.."

  • "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."

  • "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 food is delicious, the drinks superb, and the service friendly - but don't expect to make that meeting or get back to the office on time during your lunch break. It seems every time I go, the service is just as slow as the last time."

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."
