A surprise was waiting for
A surprise was waiting for dinner on Friday night. It was Michael Anthony's. What a great restaurant in Newport. Everything from service to dessert was superb. The food was delicious and well displayed. This was a first visit and I brought my mom who was visiting for Mothers Day. One always likes to impress one's mother, and our visit to MA's certainly did that. Thanks for a great evening.

Beautiful views...good food!
Having read most of the reviews on OpenTable and Yelp, I had medium expecations. This really is a beautiful space with phenomenal views. We were a group of 14 (had a prior reservation) and given that the weather was nice, they were able to accomodate my request to move our tables outside (after they had already been set up inside). This was very much appreciated. Service as not too fast and not too slow given the size of the table. Food was fairly priced. The salmon I had was rather ho-hum, whereas the person next to me had the Seabass which looked great and apparently tasted great, as well. I would come back again for the views, and would be more careful with the food choices. BTW, they could really use some daily specials!

Another Great Meal
Entertained family on this occasion. Excellent food and atmosphere. Restaurant is located on the water and you can see the new World Trade Center and the New York City skyline quite vividly. There were three wedding receptions going on at the same time but it did not impact our dining experience.

Better than expected
We had heard the view is amazing which it is but the food was just OK. We actually had very good meals and our waiter was great. If you read the website it makes you feel that this is a very upscale place. Possibly that is what the owners intended however it is not. We did get dressed up because there are so few places in Jersey City that people dress nice for and we like to get dressed up sometimes. We were the only ones. The majority of people come in with shorts and tee shirts, very beach like atmosphere except for the people that are there for private parties

1 bad waitress didn't ruin night
i gave the service a 2 star rating because our particular waitress was horrible. though she may have been new (hopefully that was the excuse). other waiters bailed her out a few times. she didn't know how to open a bottle of wine, she never read off the "specials" to us,when she poured the wine she poured more then 1/2 the bottle at once filling glasses way to much
spectacular views (and i live a few blocks away) & portions are HUGE
we were lucky to see a spectacular rainbow stretch across the sky on night we went

Better than I expected.
People tend to pick apart places in their reviews. Heh, so do I sometime, but not for Michael Anthony's. We had 2 pasta dishes and 2 fish dishes. Both were incredibly delicious. The pasta ones (penne & fusilli) both were sized for taking portions home, and both delicious next-day.

My girlfriend and I are new to Jersey City. We tried it out during Restaurant Week and loved it. Beautiful view on the semi-outdoor seating. on the waterfront and marina with an amazing view of downtown NYC. We ordered off the pre-fixe menu. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Never rushed, but always there to check if we needed anything.
We'd highly recommend it. We'll be back.

I saw Marc Anthony!
Yes I absolutely saw Marc Anthony. Noooo not that Marc Anthony...I'm talking about the yacht called "Marc Anthony". You see this place is surrounded by yachts. It's in the marina in Jersey City so you know the view is pretty good. I mean sitting close to the water I had a clear line of sight to the Freedom Tower across the river and a good view of the Empire and Chrysler buildings. So there's nothing left to be said about the scenic view. Now on to the most important thing: food. I visited here for the first time for my mother's birthday which coincidentally fell on Hudson Restaurant Week. The food was fantastic and most importantly they did not skimp on the quantity or quality. I highly recommend this place!

Been here several times before mostly for the view & location. As a local place was always known for lacking in food & service but wow what a total turnaround now. Service was fantastic and all our food was delicious. Would recommend MA finally to friends and family & will be going back again soon.

Very nice dinner off the restaurant week menu. Loved the sizable appetizers especially the shrimp & crab scampi. Both my husband and I ordered the NY strip and we were pleased to see that the portion was a good size and both were cooked correctly, which is not always the case at other restaurants. We also liked our brownie dessert, very decadent and rich. I would only improve the main course by having the option of fries or a vegetable. (That may have been available, I didn't request it.)
We will definitely return and have already recommended to friends :)

Pleasant surprise that the food and service were so good when the main attraction is the fabulous view. Server was great. A truly enjoyable experience.

Great Scenic View
The various sandwiches that we had for lunch was good. Pizza was very good. Great Scenic view to the NYC Financial center. We had a group of 7 and the service was very good and attentive.
There is free parking near the restaurant that I was not aware of. Definitely a place to return to for a sunset dinning event.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
great taste great view
We got to the restaurant early at 4 pm for dinner and food and service were great. We sat right by the marina and had great views throughout our dining experience. I would recommend this restaurant as good meet up spot with friends or a date.

Best In View
I took a couple of clients from across the country there and it as breath taking. I had rarely seen lower Manhatten and this was a sight to see. We have now proclaimed this restaurant as our place of choice to bring clients and our spouses as well. Great place, great food, GREAT VIEW.

I have been to Michael Anthony's
I have been to Michael Anthony's a few times and every experience has been excellent. Great service and great food. Even better view of lower Manhattan.

Not only was the view and area beautiful but the service was SUPERB! Our waitor was so nice & on pont with everything and any request. The service made the experience more enjoyable. Thank you.

A place with a view
Micheal Anthoy's is located in a marina overlooking lower Manhatten. The menu has some fantastic items however they tend to be pared with lackluster sides. Overall it's a great place to go because of the view and we've never has trouble getting a table.

excellent service...delicious food...gorgeous view of NYC. a 10 plus!

Had a fabulous Wed evening experience. The receptionist doubled in rotation with my waiters, and she carried a more comfortable chair out to the patio for me to dine. The waiters welcomed me back, and remembered the white wine and some food choices from last time. Their combined service was superb. I ordered off menu and they made a special clams in white wine broth for me upon request. A surprise interlude was a hot wet cloth napkin with a lemon slice to clean off my figures between courses (nice touch of class!). My final fish entree was amusing in delivery between Branzini or Sea Bass depending on the inventory; it was fine; Drinks and white wine were good. The view over the marina at sunset was spectacular. I will be going back soon!

My husband and I had Date Night. The view is absolutely beautiful, service and the food was impeccable.
Would definitely go back and recommend to everyone.
Thank you so much to the all the staff for a wonderful experience.

After living in the area for some time, but never trying the restaurant, we finally found ourselves at Michael Anthony's. I'm now wondering what took us so long. The service was excellent, the wine was awesome, the food was amazing, and the view is just stunning. We will be back and we will make it a regular rotation. We had out of town (out of country, actually) visitors with us, and we were well taken care of during our meal. Thank you!!
