A quiet bistro with a continental
A quiet bistro with a continental flair and flavor. Eclectic offerings with very good wine and beer pairings.
A great plus is the small parking lot and outside dinning in good weather

Very pleased with every aspect
Very pleased with every aspect of bistro la source. I didn't give a 5 because I don't give 5s unless the meal is a bargain. We enjoyed everything. My wife had the duck and it was perfectly prepared. Service was good too, attentive but not annoying. Would definitely go back. Reminded us of being in Europe.

We celebrated my partner's
We celebrated my partner's birthday and our 10th Anniversary starting with dinner at Bistro La Source. The food was fantastic - I had the Fried Chicken (OMG) and my partner had the Braised Lamb Shank (enormous and yummy!).
The best part about the whole experience was our server Katrina - she was PHENOMENAL!! She was warm and welcoming, very conversational, made great recommendations, and was what really made the evening complete.
We can't wait to go back!

It was Mother's Day but still good
I'm always wary of going to restaurants on special holidays but I have to say that Bistro La Saurce was still pretty good. We went in the evening and it was obvious that the long day was taking a toll on the waitress but she was still attentive and very nice. The food took only a reasonably longer time to come out. As appetizers we shared incredibly sweet mussels, escargot that were very tender and a very tasty grilled octopus. I had an absolutely delicious duck breast with rye berries. My husband had an excellent Seafood Stew. One of my sons had the Salmon Filet and said it was perfectly done. My other son loved the Fish and Chips. They have a nice wine list. All in all it was a great Mother's Day dinner! Far above my expectation.

We were a party of 8 (including 3 small children) so made a reservation,Bistro La Source was so accommodating with setting up table that worked for all. The adults dined on the mussels (Monday special) which are amazing, each diner had their own special choice. The hamburger was also tasty and cooked to perfection.The wine was excellent with a nice selection of cocktails as well. The outstanding service made this a memorable evening and we will be sure to return.

Neighborhood gem indeed
This is a reliable, eclectic stop that I need to make more time for. styled like a European bistro the young servers are friendly and enthusiastic. The menu runs the gamut from fried chicken to duck
Try the Monday night mussels special with a tall larger- it'd summer sit outside and make some friends

Best French Cuisine in Jersey City
Bistro is not in my neighborhood and I still make it a point to go there as often as possible. From the wine list which includes outstanding French and American wines, to the large menu with French classics and modern twists, everything about this place is fantastic. It is definitely one of the best restaurants in town and certainly a favorite of mine.

Favorite local restaurant
It's a fabulous local restaurant -- better when less busy, but the food is always great and so is the ambience

Delivered on Expectations
I have been wanting to check this spot out for a while now and was not disappointed. The brunch menu had a good variety of food and pricing...something for everyone. The bacon was thick cut and delicious. Everything on the Gourmand brunch dish was wonderful. The only thing we'd pass on in the future is the chocolate crepe -- we got it as a dessert for the table and it really had very little filling or flavor. Service was very friendly and helpful. We were able to sit and catch up with friends for 3 hours and never felt rushed. We did sit inside as it was a humid day, but the cute tables outside were really tempting us to put up with heat. Will try outdoor seating on a nice cool evening ...hopefully soon.

Nothing but good on food,
Nothing but good on food, service and prices. However it does need indoor air-conditioning. However it was 95 outside.

Nice noon time break
Had a pleasant lunch here with a colleague. Good food. Good wine list. The service was a bit slow despite the restaurant not being very crowded, but on the positive side it did make for a relaing meal.

Wonderful neighborhood bistro
It's a small bistro neighborhood kind of place. Don't go in there expecting some hoity-toity culinary experience with proper waiters in suits, with high-brow French romantic ambiance. It's not that, and that's why I love it. Everything a local neighborhood restaurant should be. And we thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine and casual waitstaff. We had mussels -- three kinds, all great, and we had the pork tenderloin/pork belly dish with brussel sprouts. YUM. Great value, too, for the quality of food. Highly recommend.

Greate Date Spot
This restaurant is in the heart of Paulus Hook and is an excellent for date night. The food was delicious, our waitress was friendly, energetic and very informative regarding the menu. The place was busy, but still comfortable. They have a very nice outdoor area, but it was too cold for us. Would have been great during the summer.

Great Traditional Bistro Fare
I've dined here three or four times already. Everything we've had is wonderful. The mussels are fantastic, and their charcuterie selection shines. Try the pasta with rabbit, peas and grana padano, it's heaven. And the lamb shanks fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. Do not miss this place.

Excellent bistro food served nicely in a pleasant environment. Classics are offered at very reasonable prices, allowing for young and old to sample a taste of France on the spur of the moment!
