    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).

    We had a craving for steak and was recommended to Edward's steak house. When we walked we were warmly greeted. Our food orders had a fast turnaround and the wine pairings were perfect. It's not the best steak I've had but it was pretty good. I would recommend this restaurant.

    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.

    Tucked away in an attractive brownstone with beautiful flowers in the window boxes and front entrance, this steakhouse ranked up there with her pricier Manhattan. The raw oyaters, fresh greens and filet mignon were exceptional. Excellent wine list and Chopin vodka!

    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!!

    The tuna tartare was good but somewhat flat tasting. The Chilean sea bass was also good but I was disappointed that it was presented on a bed of plain white rice. Too pricey for the quality of food. I expected it to be over the top with more creativity in the presentation and taste. My palate was not wowed in the least.

    I recently moved to Jersey City, so I cannot comment on how this restaurant compares to what it used to be like (which I see a lot of reviewers commenting on). Overall, my experience was very good. The bartender in the front bar area and our server in the dining room were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The steaks were cooked to perfection. For the size of the portions given, the prices were reasonable. Tasty sides. Reasonably priced, good variety in the wine list. I live down the block from here, so I have a really good feeling that I'm going to be back!

    This is truly a steakhouse experience. While the menu might be pricey, you do get what you pay for in both quality and quantity. The crabcake appetizer was all crab and no filler - just perfect! My sister and I shared the porterhouse for two and it was "like buttah!". Wine markups are very reasonable, the room has a clubby feel with dark leather and 1800's era touches and the service was excellent. Great hidden gem and I can't wait to return!

    Great food but a lil on the price heavy side. You need to know your meat and how you like it to be cooked. Your gonna pay about 250-300 maybe more if you like a good 3 course meal and a bottel of two of wine...but dont go to a place like this unless you expect to pay that price. People are great and the room is the best little spot for a romantic din for two.

    I booked this reservation for Valentine's Day and it was a really nice, relaxing meal. It is probably one of the more expensive restaurants in the area, but that is to be expected of a steak restaurant at this caliber. It is not quite at the level of the high end restaurants in NYC, but it is also less expensive and far more relaxed. The staff was very nice and attentive and I was pleased that for Valentine's Day they had their full menu and specials and we weren't forced into a prix fixe option. Great experience overall.
