The food, atmosphere, and
The food, atmosphere, and service at Fire and Oak were all above par and I look forward to hosting my next get together there soon. The one thing that I was not aware of was that on Sundays no alcohol can be served before 12:00 noon, so that would have impacted what time I made my brunch reservation. The restaurant in general and our service in particular made sure that while we waited on our champagne that we were all well attended to and is one of the main reasons I will go back in the future.

As always the food is delicious
As always the food is delicious and the service excellent. I loved the crab cakes and the fries. I am never disappointed when I eat here.

great for business or romance
We stayed at the Westin on business and had dinner there one evening. We weren't very hungry so we decided to share a couple of plates. Everything we ordered was delicious. The decor was modern, sleek and dark - I personally loved it.
Wait staff was attentive.
If we are ever back in the area I would love to try some of the main dishes as they looked great on the menu and the kitchen knows how to cook :-)

Modern with food for everyone
I found the restaurant to be modern making it seem as if you weren't just in any other hotel restaurant. Good food selections for all and large spaces for groups.

Great Mother's Day Brunch!
I scored big points with my family for booking this lovely brunch. It was a little crazy as expected, and it did take about 20 minutes to get us seated, but overall we were very pleased. I think they could have used more waiters because our red-headed hostess had to set up our table herself. The buffet had everything you could possibly want (Bananas Foster French Toast, NY Strip Steak carving station, and the Chocolate Lava Cake were favorites!) and even my vegetarian husband had enough options. I would definitely come back for their Saturday dinner deal, and their regular brunch. The location is perfect, being that half of the party is from NY(1 block away from the PATH), and half from NJ. I think I found a new default family restaurant!

Excellent food and service
We were a group of 6 and absolutely loved all the appetizers, entrees and the best dessert - freshly made chocolate brownie with ice cream !

Great for business travellers
Food was very good and the price was reasonable, and we had excellent service.

We have dined at this restaurant before in the outside dining area and we really enjoyed it! The food was amazing the first time and equally as good the second time. We arrived a 1/2 early and the hostess quickly took care of our party of 8. The service wasn't excellent but overall good. The waitress didn't smile at all however the food made up for it!

Above average hotel restaurant
2nd time dining here. Food is interesting and definitely better than your average restaurant hotel. I had salmon that, while tasty, was completely overcooked and swimming in sauce and also overcooked shrimp. Service was very attentive and we definitely enjoyed our meal and experience. If you are staying at the Westin in Jersey City it is definitely worth a try, though I wouldn't go out of my way to come here.

Excellent food and service !
The food and service is excellent and above all ...the "brownie" (do not miss this) - arguably the BEST EVER !!!

I was really pleasantly surprised about this restaurant. The crab cocktail was a huge portion of the biggest crab meat I've ever seen. The lobster special was a huge, delicious lobster for a really reasonable price.

good for early lunch
Had a meeting scheduled for noon, so needed a place that served relatively early. This fit the bill.

Brunch lasts until 3 pm, and brunch is affordable.

Great ambience, standard food
Went to Fire & Oak after work for the happy hour specials which they would only give to us at the bar or outside which was dissapointing. The drinks list is pretty good however the food menu pricing isn't as cheap. Food was pretty standard. Nothing to rave about nor nothing to complain about. The place has a great view of Newport and a fantastic interior ambience. Those factors alone are enough to make it worth a visit.

The restaurant is a nice place
The restaurant is a nice place for lunch. But, the noise level during lunchtime makes it difficult to have a conversation among a moderate size group of 4 to 6 people.
Daily specials are always good. The chef is very creative with common lunch items like burgers, sandwiches and salads.

Gotta come back!
The menu looked full of great items, and from tasting only 2, I definitely want to go back and order more. I highly recommend the Ultimate French Dip! The decor was really cool too, and would like to see it during a more energetic dinner.

Service was great, as was
Service was great, as was the food. Also, if you go during brunch you have the option of paying $10 for unlimited bellini's, mimosa's or bloody mary's - which I think is a steal. We use to dine at a restaurant in Hoboken that included unlimited drinks but we were sad to hear they no longer provided it - I'm so happy to see that Fire & Oak does.

10 out of 10!!
Restaurant is within the Westin Hotel .... big deal!! Everything about this place (especially the staff) makes you forget you are in a hotel.
Prompt & friendly service .... nice wine list .... fresh sushi .... great food made for an enjoyable experience.

Great upscale dining in Jersey City
The food selection was diverse and the quality exceptional. The service was attentive and helpful, but worth noting these are not highly trained wait staff. For a 3 course meal expect to spend $100 per person with drink, but worth the money if you are willing.

Wanted a noon reservation. Open table limitted it to 11:30 or 2. It wasn't crowded so I don't understand the reasoning !
Service was excellent. The staff was friendly and professional.
We were a group of ten so we tried the assorted appytiser player. It was ok. The spinage and artichik dip. Was the best I've had. The ribs were small but delicious. My koby burger was medium instead , not medium rare as requested. Rest was good.
I bet dinner or the brunch would be even better.

For a midweek dinner. .. it was very nice. Parking is a bit convoluted of you do not know the area. However the restaurant is adjacent the mall.

We found that the service
We found that the service was fabulous - the bartender we had while we waited for another couple couldn't have been better. Very attentive, friendly and fun. The dining room is a bit loud, I wouldn't call this an 'intimate' dining experience, but the food is delicious. The menu is just right - not too many items, but enough selections to saitsfy all tastes! When I read the restaurant was in the Westin hotel, I was excited thinking that we would have a fabulous view of the City; however, Fire and Oak is on the bottom floor - alas, no view!! We will go again, but not for those very 'special' occasions.

Loved the Fire Pit outside waiting for group to arrive. Celebrated a special birthday. Waiter was attentive and helpful. The mixed grill special was excellent. Also the surf and turf was equally a good choice. I ordered BLT salad and was too a very generous portion. Could share it! The sweet potato corn chowder is a different twist and enjoyable. We had a variety of foods and everyone enjoyed their dinner. The Mac and Cheese got mixed reviews. The brownie dessert could also be shared- very generous portion. Our only complaint was that we were seated near an air vent and it was cold. Our waiter tried to get it adjusted but it took some time. He provided one dessert as a sorry. I would go back but be more aware of our seating.

I didn't expect such great service and good selection of food from a hotel restaurant, but it was really nice. Parking in the Newport mall garage was convenient and free with ticket from the desk. Catered to my daughter's birthday "surprise" really well, sent via Open Table reservation.
