    Great view along the Hudson. If you are a fan of Jersey you will like the menu. All Jersey made. Save room for dessert with fried oreos and zeppolies. Took me back to the shore.

    after making a reservation (& the place being dead) it still took 10 minutes, of standing around, to seat us. after ordering our drinks and appetizer - our appetizer came and were gone before our drinks even reached the table. after stating i no longer wanted my drink because i had waited 45 minutes for it (& would be driving shortly), the waitress gave an attitude! then i got the clam appetizer, not the entree as i ordered - the waitress didn't even come to check on us after getting our food for at least 10 minutes, did not offer to exchange for the correct entree nor say sorry - but put the blame on me. ...not to mention a few nights prior we tried stopping for a drink & stood at the bar without acknowlegment for 20 min so we left!

    We ordered 6 different food items - 3 were good - 3 did not live up to the menu description - service was friendly when at table but hard to find otherwise - a bit pricey - music was too loud - too many young children running around the room while the parents sat at table - not a great experience!

    The food was decently mediocre, but the service makes me never want to go back! So unattentive and took 20 minutes to come back with a fork for our fifth person after our meals came... if the service had been better maybe it would've been easier to ignore the food mediocrity. Staff useless and so clueless - ruined my dad's Father's Day that's for sure!

    Did a little research for have a nice lunch after being at the W for a spa day. Had many recommendations for lunch but the receptionist at Bliss told us she tried the place and said she enjoyed it so I went with it. Hostess was lovely, waited about 10 minutes (we were early), our serve Angel was great, the food was ok, the view was gorgeous. The biggest downfall were the restrooms, disgusting for an afternoon.

    I went for the first time on 4/13. We were late for our reservation which I assumed wasn't held anymore but was still available which I was VERY appreciative of as there was a 40 min. wait. The service was not so good though, we waited a long time for 3 salads and an omelette, and over 20min. for our drinks as there were "not enough glasses" and they were grabbing them off tables to clean. I could see glasses behind the bar stacked ready to go. Our server was hard to find, didn't really check up on us until the check was brought, and brought the wrong dressing three times. The food was phenomenal even dishes coming out looked good. There was live music which was nice and not too loud. Overall it was good, but I assume we had a new server.

    We had a few appetizers; the Manzo Balls, eggplant capese and the fried clam strips. All three were fabulous but the Manzo Balls had to be the best. Mama Manzo really knows what she was doing and her boys were smart to put this item on the menu!

    I was looking forward to eating here because of the hype and location but the food was subpar. The local beers were great minus the fact that they were out of our first three choices. The location of the restaurant is its saving grace with views of the skyline. Hoboken isn't short of good restaurants for food so I wouldn't return on my own accord.

    We were very exited to try Little Town. We took a special trip to Hoboken while on a trip to NYC, just to go to LittleTown. The restaurant was very nice inside and out. The staff was very friendly & hospitable, but the server did not know the menu & he was very inattentive, but he was still friendly. The food however was not good at all. All three of us had different things & all three were bad. The only thing that we all enjoyed were the disco fries. Even the couple that were sitting at a table next to us said that their food was bad. We are hoping that someone will change the menu or at least include normal things that people enjoy, because most of the menu is made up of crazy concoctions of sandwiches and other items that no one wants.

    Our plan was to have a pre-dinner drink and appetizer at the bar before enjoying an entree in the dining area. However, the appetizer portions were large enough to be an entree so we need to come back to try other items on the menu. The hummus was excellent - very different (the best I ever had). The Bellevile Beeps (shrimp appetizer) was also excellent. It was a clear night - outstanding view of NYC. Plan to return again, especially in the Spring/Summer so we can sit outside,

    came to Little Town for brunch and it was great! A friend and I each had the steak & eggs which were amazing. Another friend had the Crab Benny which she said was great and another friend had the Long Hot Omelet, which she loved as well. I love the atmosphere as well as the view, too! I'll be back.

    I have to say how pleasently surprised I was with Little Town NJ. Of course I went there for the Manzo family and was hoping to get a pic or meet and greet. However, once we sat down I wasn't even concerned with that. The service was wonderful and accomodating (we had 3 kids under 3) and the food didn't dissapoint!!! We got the brunch and and couldn't believe the amount of food that was included! And how delicious all of the food was. Everything we ate, we said "This is the best thing ever" - the 'made to order' option for someo fthe brunch menu items was an even better surprise!! I did not want to leave. Kudos to the family and the restruant - it was a really great experiance, I only wish I lived closer - but will definitely go back!
