Excellent food, esp. seafood. Very pleasant service. Only weak spot was special dessert tart.

Upstairs at the Brass Rail is still the most romantic dinner spot in Hoboken (and the best and most innovative food too). I've been going to the Brass Rail since the mid 1980s and, although there have been changes (giant fire, changes in ownership, chefs etc), it has maintained its status as the best restaurant in Hoboken. I'd recommend upstairs -- downstairs is noisy and crazy. When you climb the beautiful circular stair in the back, however, you enter a different place.

Must get the muscles!!!
Cane here mistakenly thinking that Hoboken Restaurant week was in effect. Decided to stay anyway and boooyyy was that a great idea! Order the muscles, truffle meatballs and Nutella creme creme brûlée off of their Prie Fixe menu. The food was great as was the service.

No Ice Please
If it wasn't for the waiter that spilled 2/3 of the ice on the table the night would have been perfect. Other than that, food was great, the waiter apologized and the dessert was the best.

Fun and Classy
I love going to this restaurant with my girl friends to catch up. It is not too loud, and the food is delicious! I would also recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner or a place to first meet on a date. The cocktails and appetizers are good too!

Must-Go for Quality Food Downtown
Finding a decent bar, with service, and food is hard the farther downtown you get in Hoboken. The Brass rail is a great exception to the college bars and Irish pubs. Try the Skirt Steak and the mussels if you're into crumbled blue cheese.
Service is great, however, ask for seating upstairs if you want a quiet night. Downstairs is a lively, upscale bar crowd and outdoor seating in the summer.

Hoboken has many places most cater to the beer burgers and tv screens, great if that is all you want Brass Rail's upstairs dinning is an oasis of tranquility in a smart, relaxed atmosphere. Food was excellent, service was very good there when you need them, plus they have a good wine list. Can't go wrong.

The staff were friendly and
The staff were friendly and very attentive. We did not feel rushed and the pace of dinner made it very relaxing as I was there with my wife and adult daughters. The seared tune was fantastic and can'r wait to go back to try the skirt steak. The pasta with the pesto sauce my wife had was outstanding. The portions were very generous.

A great date night!
My boyfriend took me to The Brass Rail for a special date night. I had their filet mignon with root veggies and mashed potatoes- it was delicious! We had been here for brunch once before (our first date) and that was also very good. Their selection is great- there are many dishes I wish to try, and I always have a bit of trouble deciding what I want, and I think that is a great thing. Not an overwhelming menu, just a lot of great choices. Enjoy!

Went there with friends this Sat night. Our service was friendly and accommodating. The Calamari, Wasabi Shrimp, and Mussels for Apps - all very good. The pork chop, Skirt steak, Salmon, and chicken dish we ordered were cooked perfectly and tasted delish! Afterwards went down to bar which was hopping with a mix of old school and newer tunes by a DJ with actual turn tables! The music was great all night and had us going. Overall prices for drinks and dinner was market rate for area and in my mind worth it. I paid $5 for a parking validation ticket at bar and it didn't work which was disappointing - not sure if I was in wrong muni lot. In any case, I will definitely be back and highly recommend this place.

We had a great time....Food was super...
