Light Horse Tavern
A Gem in Paulus Hook, Jersey CityThree of us dined at this restaurant. It was a perfect evening to dine outdoors. The weather was perfect, the wait staff was polite and efficient, and the food was terrific.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat local eateryreally great service and a well prepared meal. Chose this place because their menu is more expansive than a typical bar/tavern. It was a beautiful day, so we asked to sit outside. Enjoyed every bite and Ryan, our waiter, provided great service. Is now on my favorites list.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceGreat specialty drinks, really nice food, good service.

The bbq steak was cooked to perfection.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place - I thinkI love this place - I think its a total find! I have taken clients there for dinner and gone for my own social events. Historical, airy, hip, extremely professional waitstaff, and my meals have ranged from very good to amazing. Has a cool vibe.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWill make this a regular spot...It is a place in JC where I will take people for special occasions. The service was top-notch. The cocktails were delicious and the appetizers and entrees were all wonderful. It's in a lovely little neighborhood and I will make it a regular spot. One drawback, however, is the street parking situation, which is almost nonexistent. They do, however, have a deal with a lot for 2 hours of validated parking, which helps a bit. I really hope it continues to live up to my two visits here.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good but soupFood was very good but soup could have been hotter, entree potions just a bit larger. Would go back again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe clebrated my wife's birthdayWe clebrated my wife's birthday here. We sat in a back area so the noise level was very quiet. I believe it would be listed as energetic if we sat in the bar area.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a large group, andWe had a large group, and enjoyed being in the side room - there were other diners, but we had some privacy and great service. Menu was broad and many enjoyed the prime rib special. Sea bass was also very nice, and there were an assortment of appetizers that we shared. All were tasty. Burrata was small but very good. In a neighborhood without very many choices for dining, Light Horse Tavern is a good spot.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe raw bar was excellent!The raw bar was excellent! Our server, Alex was also great.
