A word from Maritime Parc
A restaurant that captures the spirit of the sea: an outdoor stone patio where food, drink, a year-round indoor dining room where accessible yet sophisticated cuisine is served by a crisp, attentive staff, which revitalizes the tradition of the great seaside restaurants of yesteryear for the modern diner, adding a signature spectacle: expansive views of the Hudson River and lower Manhattan that frame the scene.

    Maritime Parc was great! We enjoyed an amazing and special evening there this past weekend. The service was exceptional as was the food. Grilled oysters, pork belly, scallops, short ribs, pasta, seafood...not a weak link! Do yourself a favor and get there, you will not be disappointed!

    Returned Saturday night after a long absence to find Maritime better than before. Smooth service, full but not overrun, delicious food. Loved the pickled onion and cheese dip for the fresh bread, and at the chef's recommendation we all sampled a fab burger and fries (yum) with our appetizers. I enjoyed simple, fresh salmon. Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their entrees and said they'd return. We were treated to fireworks over the Hudson upon our exit (nearby wedding I assume). A treat.

    So, I have lived in Jersey City for 6 years and had never been to Maritime Parc. In my head, I always figured it was a touristy type of restaurant in Liberty State Park aiming for the wedding crowd. I could not have been more wrong. Went here on Saturday night and had a superb meal, beautiful views and fantastic service. Before we even ordered, they brought out like 3 types of bread with this amazing dipping oil with melon, feta, sun-dried tomato...really topnotch. Then, we started with oysters and this pork belly kung pao - amazing! For our main entrees, we had the scallops with short rib and the skate. Both were divine. They ended the meal by bringing us delicious homemade cookies to take home. This place is a winner. We will be back.

    There's really no negatives. I'd seen reviews where people spoke of inattentive service, but it was anything but. Plates sat for a minute before being taken away, and just the right amount of time was given between dishes. As for the food, it looked great and tasted great. The restaurant itself was clean, dimly lit (I'm not looking for a clean room environment), and spread out.

    Had a great brunch here with my mother before checking the upstairs out as a potential venue option. We sat outside on a sunny day and had a great time - food was good, service was quick and the view is really nice! I live in NYC so coming back isn't necessarily so convenient, but I''ll recommend it to others.

    The location is GREAT. The wait staff is nice but not professional.We started out with appetizers. My Mussels where a generous portion. My dining partner had the Oysters. They where so small you could not even tell they where Oysters. I mentioned it to the waiter to tell the chef because I felt he should be aware of the Quality. No one ever came over to ask us about it.The main cources where very small portions. Would not go back.

    This dinner was for my 20 year anniversary. The restaurant handled the reservation request perfectly, made sure they had the table that I requested outside with the view. I also had flowers delivered to the restaurant and they had them brought right to the table when we sat down. The hostess was great on the phone and in person and the wait staff was very attentive but not in a way that they were hovering. I would highly recommend the restaurant for a very nice evening.

    We loved the location and the ambience of the restaurant. We had very high expectations with the food, based on the reviews but found it ok. The soft chorizo overpowered the mussels in the appetizer and it would have been great to see it as a textural contrast. It could definitely use a piece of bread as well. The heirloom tomato salad was too one dimensional with large pieces of unseasoned tomatoes. Overall it was a good meal but not a memorable meal...

    Saw this restaurant on OpenTable, decided to try it out for brunch. Food was great, lots of choices on the brunch menu, service was good (server managed to be there when we needed him, but was clearly overwhelmed with too many tables, hostess seemed overwhelmed when we arrived as well). View of the city is beautiful! Will definitely be returning soon.

    Our party of 4 went specifically for the Thursday night special. We tried the MP beef burger ,excellent, my pork burger was probably one of the best burgers I ever had, extremely flavorful and beautifully The scallop burger was not a hot which was more of a texture than taste issue. oysters were flavorful & drinks with the special were all wonderful. We have had service issues with Maritime Parc before, in fact we're marina tenants and rarely ever go there . However, the hostess was pleasant and professional, our bus boy and waiter were very attentive , polite and knowledgeable. I will consider coming back more regularly and for $20 you cannot beat the special on a Thursday especially considering the spectacular view.

    It is obvious by other reviews and our expirience that even though the restaurant has a great location and food, the front of the house staff does not really care about the business. The restaurant has the hours of operation wrong on OpenTable, so we made the resrvation based on them, and when we got there, they said the restaurant was closed. The staff was all there and they acknowledged my reservation, but they wouldn't even let us in the door. We told the "very rude hostess and waiter" how far we walked and how hot it was, but they obviously need a class in hospitality, they would not even let us in for a glass of water. What a shame!

    Found this lovely place in Jersey City and wish I knew about it sooner. It is great place to dine during the summer for the view is impeccable. I went for brunch and my friend and I sampled quite a bit from the menu haha. The duck fat fries had beautiful presentation but they weren't anything special to me. I thought I taste more of a duck flavor in them. Besides that, the green salad, Crabcake, lobster club and blueberry French toast were all amazing. I'd definitely recommend this place.

    my girlfriend and i came here expecting brunch on a late saturday morning/early afternoon. when we arrived, i asked the hostess for the brunch menu and she informed us they only served brunch sundays, so it was either lunch or nothing. we were just about the leave when we decided we were just too hungry to go anywhere else. we were very glad we didn't leave. i had the chicken with avocado fish and she had the seafood pasta. both were absolutely exceptional and delicious. the views were pretty and relaxing, and the wait staff was very attentive. i wouldn't hesitate to go back.

    The food, location and facility are first rate. However, the service leaves something lacking. The last few times we have gone here the waiters take your order, then disappear. Deliver the food, then disappear again. We've had to get up from our chair and ask for utensils, water; the basics. Really annoying because everything else is done so well. It's like the staff haven't been trained in service 101.

    I found service a little lacking. We had to ask 2 x for help stabilizing the wobbly table. Also, there were seldom visits to the table to refill wine or water glasses. Yet, food arrived promptly and was beautifully plated. Overall the menu had many great offers, the wine list had many reasonably priced bottles (even if the list overall was a little shorter than hoped), and the view was unbeatable.

    We wanted to do something special for my Dad's 60th and Maritime Parc seemed perfect. We got to sit outside with gorgeous views of NYC. The food was truly amazing and I have no complaints about that. My issue is the service. When you come here between the ambience and the prices you expect exceptional service. The wait for our server to even get to our table to start off the night was far too long. With empty drinks and no menu's we sat for a while. Our drinks were never refilled when they should be, we waited to order, waited on our food.. waited waited waited. We even had to get up one time to go into the bar area and ask for drinks ourselves. I rather go to the Chart House w/the same exceptional food, views and exceptional service.

    We visited Maritime Parc for restaurant week. It was a bit difficult to get to without a car, so we ended up taking a taxi both ways. Really beautiful, modern decor with somewhat limited outdoor seating. The food was amazing - really stand-out dishes - but I was surprised that by 11 pm, we were some of the last diners there! There was a wedding going on upstairs, but it didn't affect anything. While the service was good, it wasn't amazing - we had to keep asking for water and wine refills. Great experience overall.

    We had a great time during restaurant week. I had the swordfish and my husband had the seafood pasta and they were both excellent. The service was good overall but the hostess seemed a little stressed out. We would go there again but we would try to get a table outside. There were multiple weddings going on in the area so it was a bit crazy.

    The food is stellar, although not all ingredients are always listed on the menu which can be a real issue. For example, the French Dip was covered in spring onions and one of our diners is sensitive to them. Wait staff was excellent, and my ma left with a total crush on Lucas.

    We went for what we assumed was Brunch but ended up as Lunch, which was strange to us only because the webite doesn't mention that the restaurant serves Lunch. Website has only Brunch and Dinner listed, no Lunch, so we assumed we were going for Brunch when we went on a Saturday afternoon. Apparently this is not true, Brunch is only served Sunday which was disappointing and we were further surprised that the chef couldn't prepare the brunch menu anyway.W stayed, but several other confused diners left. Be that as it may, everything we had was excellent and fresh and beautifully plated. However, service was either slow or non existent, servers seemed to be unprepared for diners to actually show up.

    I am so thankful that Maritime Parc was so accommodating to me and my husband this past Wednesday. I had booked a 7 PM reservation for his birthday and we hit every possible bit of traffic on the way there, in a torrential downpour. They were very kind to us, even though we showed up an hour late. Our server was friendly and helpful. Best of all, they brought out his dessert with a candle, despite the fact that I had only mentioned in on OpenTable (and had forgotten to follow up by phone, it being a crazy week). Needless to say, I was impressed!

    We have eaten at Maritime Parc a few times in the past and enjoyed ourselves. This particular evening was not on par with past experiences. The menu has not been updates in the last 8 months. in the past the fare was seasonal and delicious with some staples remaining. What is much worse however is that on this night we waited 20 minutes to have our drink order taken and after a half hour still no drinks arrived. We had not ordered and were beginning to believe that the evening would not improve so we spared ourselves the sustained misery and left. It was clear from the chaos in the dining room that something was wrong, the bartender was seating guests, the hostess rudely greeted us with " you are going to have to wait a minute".

    Great find. Really romantic. It was a little anniversary dinner and the view and ambiance was perfect. The pork belly was yummy (great sauce) and the filet was perfectly cooked. The white chocolate cheesecake was plated like a piece of art and do good with the basil spongecake. They treated us to our first round of bubbly which was sweet and thoughtfully done. I manage an upscale hotel in NYC. Service is key. They were attentive and knowledgable. The pictures we took were beautiful with the city right up against us.
