    Large restaurant, not enough staff. Possible could have been off night. Had Lobster tail,was not cooked enough. Had Tagliatelle and clam appetizer. Too salty. Did not send back because of excessive wait time for food. Too expensive for food and service.

    The previous restaurant here was terrible. The reincarnation Batellos is GREAT. The food is excellent and the service is perfect. I'm looking forward to going back to try more of the menu. I live in the neighborhood and think they (Batellos) are clearly the best of all and at the top of Zagats NY quality.

    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.

    Took some out of town coworkers here for a little dinner. The view of NYC was great, the drinks flowed, and the food was fantastic. I had the arctic char and it was delicious. Perfectly crispy crust and flaky fish. The oysters are good and salty.

    Took my boyfriend and parents here and had a lovely night. The ambience and restaurant design are truly stunning, especially at night. I wish I remember the server/captain's name. He was extremely attentive, articulate with menu details, quick with refills, and never obtrusive. He set the tone for a fantastic experience.

    The glass enclosed veranda which is located on a pier surrounded by yachts puts you far and away from the bustle of city life. My group of 4 ladies couldn't refrain from taking pictures. Any table would provide you with excellent views. We came for lunch and had scrumptious lobster rolls, delicious crab, meat burgers. The desserts were unique and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant highly. We could just imagine that a late night dinner would have it's own charm . Free parking on the pier is a bonus. We had a slight glitch with a waiter but were profusely rewarded by owner or manager.

    Had an 8 pm reservation. Wasn't seated until 8:45 and only after being brought to an area and watching our table being given to another party. When I complained they told me it was first come first served. So what was the point of a reservation? No real attempt to apologize or make amends. Food was good but....... Come on!

    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.
