    Nice retreat from the chain steakhouses. Food was excellent and prepared to perfection. Wine list certainly above average. Music, atmosphere and noise level make it easy to share a Saturday night with someone special. A bit on the pricey side however the memory will outlast those few extra coins that are no longer in your pocket. Service was right on point, available but not overbearing.

    A real gem of a steak house in downtown Jersey City! Great ambience, like a good steak house in NYC. The short rib fell off the bone and was surrounded by the most exquisitely flavored sauce. I wanted to lick my plate. The pumpkin soup starter and creme brulee end were world class. Plus the wait staff could not be nicer. The tequilla Sangria, and that is not a typo, was divine!!

    My wife and I have celebrated every big occasion at Edwards. We've had our pre-annivesary dinner, rehearsal dinner and now, our first anniversary dinner there. Dan, the manager, is very accommodating and stops by to ask how we're doing. Would definitely recommend coming here for that special dinner.

    My husband and I went to Edward's Steakhouse to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. It was my second time and my husband's first time. He was amazed and loved his dish, the porterhouse. We loved the music playing in the background which was music from the 50's. Just the way I wanted to have a romantic birthday celebration. He wants to go back soon.

    My first visit to Edward's was fabulous. I had heard wonderful things about the food and the service and both were better than expected. The appetizers were delicious and everyone's meal was prepared perfectly. I would recommend the seared ahi tuna appetizer and the 24 oz porterhouse as it was as good or better than most of the NYC top end steakhouses.

    Basement restaurant in a brownstone in Jersey City. Great service from Mario. Nice menu with a lot of difficult choices. I picked the fix priced ($40) meal with a nice salad, appetizer, Delmonico steak with a fine potato hash brown and creamed spinach. Delmonico steaks are difficult to,cook RARE but they did it perfectly. Music selections in the background were perfect ranging from old to new. My wife chose and appetizer of clams with a wedge salad as she was not as hungry. We just stumbled on this place while capping in Jersey City at Liberty Harbor RV Camp. We will definitely eat here again if in the area.

    It was so loud downstairs that I had to scream to my husband in order for him to hear me. The tables are too big down there and is more meant for larger parties. Edward's should note that and NOT sit tables of two for a nice reserved romantic dinner down there. Most of the food was excellent, however, the prime rib steak that we shared was very fatty and almost half of the steak was inedible due to this.

    I visit my children and grandchildren often and everyone looks forward to coming to Edward's for steaks (yes little children do eat steak!) Our waiter Dominick is awesome, so is the food. It's a great find. Grandma is the only one who drinks and the wine list is resspectable and I respect any restaurant with Chopin vodka!

    If you are not going to even make an effort, why bother pareticipating in Restaurant Week? Based on this experience, I doubt I will ever return to Edward's ever again. Horrible food - stale croutons on salad that was too small even for a child, fishy, mushy, sandwich and undercooked dessert. Waiter was quite good, but food has to be at least edidle.

    Ordered the oysters, which were fresh, but the minette and cocktail sauce were too sweet. The 32oz bone-in 28 days aged rib eye, shared with my husband, was nothing special...it was not even seasoned, nor was it cooked as ordered. The keylime pie, made by Cocoa bakery, was a highlight. The service was amazing, but I would not return because the food was not up to par.

    Comparable to the NYC steak restaurants and in close proximity to our Daughter's place in JC. The sampler seafood ap. was fantastic and a good value for $32. All steak and chop dinners were cooked exactly to our requests. I had the NY strip au poivre, it was outstanding. The host was gracious and we changed our table which was too low for my son who is rather tall, (the table was expandable).

    I took my wife here for a surprise afternoon date - you know that space in between when the kids go to school and when you have to pick them up... lol. This place is just 10 minutes from our home and it was a great find. People were raving about it online so I figured, why not give it a try. So glad I did because the the excellent service was only rivaled by the delicious food. The wine we chose was perfect for our steak or fish dish which my wife had. I went with the Rib Eye - I am typically a Filet guy BUT I have to say this Rib Eye was juicy and not so much marble that you couldn't chew it - it was amazing. The Chilean Sea Bass my wife chose was equally delish! Love this place and I definitely recommend it.

    When I want to catch up with friends and have good food and good conversation, Edwards is the place I'll take guests to impress them and it always makes me look good!! Granted, it's not a hot spot or young and trendy but those places tend to have loud music which inhibits conversation. The food is top notch, wine, cocktails, everything on the menu is wonderful and no one ever has a complaint. Even the decor is welcoming and warm and not stuffy. Two of us had the lamb chops medium, one had stuffed shrimp and one had roasted chicken and everyone loved their food and the service.

    I discovered Edward's a decade ago, felt bereft after Sandy closed it down, and thrilled when it reopened. I feared it would be different and not in a good way. I was thankfully and happily wrong. This place is still the best steak house around. Service (Stacie) was superior and it's great to have the restaurant downstairs. I will continue to be a patron and send all visitors and friends to Edward's for dinner. You won't find anything better!!
