Diner Reviews
  • "I was there on Friday for my friend's birthday and we all enjoyed the food. The margaritas were amazing. The service was outstanding. The birthday girl even got a tequila shot on the house. We were very impressed on how good the food was. I will definitely go back!"

  • "The food at Orale was outstanding! The guacamole was a very small protion served in an ill-designed bowl however... Wasn't able to get out all of the guacamole. The fundio was delicious! The carne tacos was also very tasty! However, I wish I could have mixed and matched my tacos to try other kinds! If I lived in Jersey City, I would come here all the time!"

  • "The best Mexican I've had in the NYC area, without having to trek into Manhattan. The service was fantastic, & the food so much more sophisticated than the usual burritos & standard refried beans. The pineapple pork taco was truly sublime! We were seated immediately, service was attentive, & the atmosphere was fun & festive without being loud & annoying. Hoping to return very soon!"

  • "The bar crowd seemed to dominate the space. The location of the crowded bar made it difficult to exit the restaurant after our meal."

  • "My wife and I have been to Orale several times since it opened up last year. We love the food, but our only complaint was that you didn't get very much for your money (i.e. - some of the entrees came with "beans or rice", really?!). But now with their new menu there's really nothing left to complain about! The food is great and now the portions are very generous. You can also get a pretty strong margerita there for not too much green. Great date place!"

  • "Relly enjoyed the experience - very flavorful - The blue demon guac was to die for."

  • "Good selection of mexican classics. Corn tortillas are good, so the rest is butter. Great place to satify your mex craving in Jersey city"

  • "Came for brunch with a good size group (7 people) and had a blast. Most of us partook in the 2 hour open bar for $20, and I will say that service slowed down near the 1.5 hour make. However, when we mentioned this to our waiter, he quickly got us another round and apologized. The food was great, and the atmosphere was fun. Large table made it easier to play board games while we ate and drank."

  • "Not too expensive and everything from the trio-guacomole to the tacos were amazing. Also, drinks are on the cheaper end and food came out very quick. Will 100% be going back again. Great for big groups too!"

  • "This place is a true gem! Great food, excellent service, and so close to the Path. Came here with coworkers and ran into friends and ended up making a night of it. Margaritas were strong and perfectly frozen and the guacamole trio was so good we almost licked the bowl! A bit pricey for drinks but a great experience over all!"

  • "A great addition to the Jersey City dining scene! Awesome guacamole and Margaritas! I recommend sitting in the back room for a quieter and nicer atmosphere."

  • "We were a few minutes late for our 10:30 reservation but the hostess sat us at a great table immediately. The place has a great, young, energy vibe. Our margaritas were served in tall thin glasses, which threw me off because I like to lick the salt off a big rim! But they were garnished with fresh fruit, which was nice. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Don't look for tons of rice and cheese in these meals; the proportions are much more like authentic dishes you would be served in Mexico. Loved the exposed brick everywhere and the young hip wait staff! We'll be back!"

  • "Very good food, good service and great vibe. Too bad we discovered right before we're leaving Jersey City. I've already recommended it to a few other people."

  • "We went for my husband's birthday. I made sure to mention it when I made my reservation, and I made sure to say something to the waiter. The food, as usual, was very good. But there was no 'Happy Birthday' or anything for him, and we had people from out of the country with us to celebrate. It was a let down."

  • "We were disappointed! We were not expecting the high level of noise suited for a bar,but thought it was to be a restaurant. We left after 5 mins because it was clear we could not hear each other in our group."

  • "Very pleased with the food and atmosphere of Orale. The interior is really cool as well-colorful yet not too bright. Food was great and was a cross between authentic Mexican and NY-style restaurant. We had a steak sandwich, burrito, oysters, salsa Rojas, and side of Brussels sprouts--everything was fresh and delicious. We had takeout from Orale once before and it was fine but this is the type of food you want to enjoy in the restaurant. They have a lot of tequilas but nothing memorable. We will definitely go back."

  • "Great upscale taqueria food. If you want a fun night out with friends, this is the place to go. The food is delicious and so are the drinks! If you are just wanting a quick bite or food to go, this is a little pricey for what you get. The bites are delicious, but too few!"
