    I planned a date and made reservations at Teak. Service was good and the food was very good. The atmosphere kept us there for after dinner dancing and drinks. Music was on point and it was a pleasant crowd to be around no trouble just alot of good looking people having a great time.

    I ate here while I was waiting for my daughter to finish her photography workshop. Sat outside where it was very entertaining watching all the people arrive from the bus terminal. Weather was wonderful so it was a very pleasant evening. The Sake Sangri-tini was delicious as was the Tiger Roll. For dessert I had a huge fortune cookie with chocolate and vanilla mousse. Definitely a dish to be shared. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Afterward I took a walk along the waterfront. Can't beat the views. Definitely will return.

    I had a pretty positive experience at Teak. We ordered sushi that was pretty good and more affordable than expected. Atmosphere was nice (lighting, big fish tank behind the bar, etc) but the place was pretty loud and the table I dined at was in a bad spot. Overall, though, a good place to eat, and I would go back again.

    My first time here and the experience was great. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. We were a group of 5 ladies and had a fantastic time. The drinks were great, appetizers were delicious And dinner was excellent. The Chilean Sea Bass was phenominal. If you still have energy the place turns into a nightclub! I would definitely go back.

    A dining deal brought my friend and I to Teak on the Hudson. The cocktails were disappointing - primarily vodka-based drinks, some sake-based, but in general not very exciting and mostly too sweet. The food was very good, but our server left something to be desired. She brought the check before asking if we'd like dessert and forgot about our table a couple of times. The ambiance was lively but felt over designed. I'd recommend this for the 21 - 25 year old Hoboken crowd looking for a night out, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It simply lacks the sophistication that the 26+ crowd will expect/demand.

    I love the half priced nights at Teak, they're an amazing deal, especially for Hoboken. Their sushi is great, good quality, and awesome value at half off. They don't have an exceptionally exotic selection of it, but still a solid selection. They serve edamame at the tables instead of bread, which I love. And their specialty cocktails are also a success. My only complaint is that they crank up the music so loud you lose a lot of ambiance. I understand they have a vibrant night life, but at least wait till around 10pm to get things cranked up, especially on a weeknight.

    the food here is excellent The service is not. We were one of three occupied tables and waited for water, and then 45 minutes for the main courses. The waiter was pleasant enough but lackadaisical in his attitude. Th excuse for the long wait ws that " the kitchen is small" . a strange explanation since there were about 12 people in the whole place at the time(6:30 PM).

    We loved our food but the service was a bit too slow. That's the only thing I would improve, the fact that we had to wait a lot for our food and both our entrees and our main course came at the same time. Despite that, we had a good time and the 50% off everything (except bottles of wine) deal is pretty good.

    Teak on the Hudson provided the perfect mix of music, food, and ambiance for my wife and I to enjoy and evening out celebrating our tenth anniversary. Outdoor seating is an option but with a view of the bus terminal. Seating inside has plenty of viewing distractions. The bar long fish tank and eclectic decor provided plenty of distraction from the usual dinner talk.

    Service leaves something to be desired (a little disorganized and the food is slow, but servers are friendly). $10 lunch specials are worth the price, regular lunch entrees are a bit overpriced based on the quality you can get in Hoboken elsewhere.

    i went here for my birthday, on a saturday night, and i was expecting great food with great service and i didnt get that here. first off, the waiter never once said his name, welcomed us, nor had specials to tell us. we ordered our apps and dinner at once. we had burger bites.. no flavor, room temp, and there were only two. we had the chilean sea bass and a steak.. the steak was less than room temp as well as the mashed potatoes. the only good thing was the sea bass. my boyfriend finished eating before i did, i still had a little more to go, and a bus boy came and took his plate away... which makes it look awkward.. also the waiter never once checked on us through the whole night. overall, i never want to come back again. wasnt worth it

    Went on a thurs night w friends. Food was average at best. Fish in rolls was chewy, sea bass way too salty and service was as bland as the lobster bisque. To top it all off, our bill came with a 20% tip on what the full amount would be. So bill was about 130 and the tip was 48. We refused to pay it and they fought us on it. Saying that's their policy. We wouldn't have minded paying tip on full amount but don't tell me i "have" to. Waitress had zero personality, didn't check on us (I sat twice for a while with and empty glass) and after my husband comaines, she threw the check at him. We will never go back again. This is not the first time we've had a bad experience there.

    I took my wife here for our anniversary. The place is extremely nice. Was not crowded at all for a Saturday. The food is what ruined it for us. We had 2 sushi rolls, neither was good. I have had better sushi at a hibachi restaurant. I had the filet mignon. The steak was cooked as I had ordered, but it had no flavor. The mashed potatoes were also no good. My wife had the crispy red snapper which I thought was better than my filet, but she was not satisfied either. For the price, I expect a much better meal. I could have gone to morimoto and had much better for for a little bit more money.

    Every time we eat here, without fail, the service is slow as anything...the waitstaff blames the sushi bar being backed up or the bartenders being backed up. Took 25 minutes to get our champagne on our anniversary...and sushi took nearly an hour to come. Good thing we ordered appetizers. And it's a repeat experience. We hosted a dinner for 16 people there and it took nearly 4 hours...which is insane. That being said...the food is AMAZING. DELISH! It's the reason we go back. Teak balls, the yellowtail with jalapeno, the miso cod, etc. You can't go wrong for the view, the vibe and the food. Just be prepared and expect service on the slow side. Patience rules here, and your palate will be pleased!
