    This is a place to come for the view with friends who enjoy great food and wine, and abide awhile. The ambiance is excellent, and the menu extensive and spectacular - as is the view across the Hudson to New York City. Service is excellent, but never hurried.

    Service was adequate but slow at check time. The food was plentiful (we took half home) and very well prepared, except for the somewhat stringy pea pods. The view was wonderful, probably better when it gets dark, except then we would not have seen the wandering muskrat having his dinner. The outside bar seemed to be very popular.

    Asked four times for the music to be turned down outside, never happened. Fish was overcooked and vegetables not seasoned at all. Potatoes were bland and rock hard. The waiter was very apologetic when the manager wouldn't turn down the music which was a mixture of top 40 and hard rock, not what I would call dinner music. The only thing this place has is a good view.

    1) Ask if there's a party and if yes, eat outside. Loud and really bad music playing eliminated conversation possibilities have a conversation. Hostess didn't seem to care, just said, "Well, there's a party." 2) Don't go if rushed. Full hour after ordering before our main course came. 3) Mango salad sounded great but dressing was way too sour and the pepper jack cheese did not go with anything else. Fortunately I had them leave it off mine; my husband did not. 4) I ordered the risotto special with sea food. The mussels were incredibly overcooked and tough. On the positive side, when I told the waiter, I got perfectly cooked mussels. The 2 pieces of shrimp had a strong ammonia flavor. 5) Wait staff was wonderful as was the view.

    I was quite disappointed after a recent dining experience at this establishment. I had higher expectations for the quality of the food, the ambience and the service. The meal I ordered was delivered undercooked and had to be returned to the kitchen. From there the dining experience went downhill including overcharging for the dish. The salmon was fresh, however the other items that were plated with it had seen better days. The advertising for Le Jardin promises fabulous views. Yes, you will see the GW Bridge....but forget about seeing NYC. There are treetops in the way as well as a line of townhomes that run down to the river. Maybe it was just "a comedy of errors" but would not return to Le Jardin.

    Dined on 5/13/2014
    Their food was okay, the view and the atmosphere was good, but the service was sub par. Their wine list didn't have the vintages. Their food was not hot or cold, just room temperature. Even my steak was room temperature. The waiter was just standing around, he was only serving one table, our table, but we had to hail him to give us more water, take the plates away, etc. For the price, it really is not worth it, no wonder it was 90% empty.

    Went there because I like a good relaxing meal with not to much noise. I asked for a window table when I booked my table but I didn't get one. Then when I asked the waiter what kind of Burbon they had he said only Jack Daniels. Then the boss came over when started to walk out and told me he had Burbon. But he tried to put me down and make feel like like I was fool. I then educated him on Burbon. Definitely for the over 50-60 crowd not the 40 but good food

    I used to frequent Le Jardin more often when it first opened, but it kind of fell of my routine. We started at the bar for a cocktail, lovely piano music playing , nice couples to converse with an a great martini list. Dinner was not rushes, we had a great NYC view. Crab cocktail, lobster salad, veal milanese and lamb shank were all very good. Wine list was not outrageously priced either and a few really good cab selections. It was not packed at all which made me question why, being I could not find anything wrong with it. The party room has a gorgeous fireplace I would consider this for a shower, communion etc.

    Excellent food and a beautiful view of the Hudson and GW Bridge. The evening was marred by the very high noise level of this charming bistro due to the lack of any carpet or drapes. Overall, the dinner was pricey-way too high considering the location (Edgewater, NJ ) and slightly uncomfortable atmosphere.

    I have been to this restaurant several times and, I do like the food even if the service is uneven. The bus boy gave the take-away bags to the wrong people even when we asked him to be sure the bags contained our food. The next day, sure enough, it wasn't our food. Very disappointing. All that aside, I will return to Le Jardin because I do like the food and the view.

    We enjoyed our first visit to Le Jardin this past Saturday night. Although we did not encounter any French staff, the food, service and ambience were superb. The only negative was the noise level in the dining room overlooking the Hudson. The view helped to lessen the impact of the noise. The piano bar after dinner was great fun and Max was wonderful. We will return.

    The restaurant has gorgeous views of the city and the GW bridge. I had the impression I may be in for a good experience...I was wrong. Besides fish there was only some type of mushroom appetizer as an alternative. Basically it was two asparagus topped with canned mushrooms, for $13. We asked the waiter to make entree suggestions he didn't really have any! While we waited for our dinner there was some kind of bickering or banter going on between the wait staff. We luckily were at the table right in between it all, seemed very unprofessional. Finally the main course. Both were very salty. Neither of us finished. I wanted to enjoy the ambiance so much but there was nothing enjoyable besides the scenery.
