Diner Reviews
  • "I was satisfied. The effort was there. There were some flaws but no major ones...generally a good meal. It is not an elite restaurant but it is absolutely adequate...I recommend."

  • "Easy to get reservations and they worked with us when we had to come late. We got the wasabi shrimp and lobster Mac for appetizers - both wonderfully tasty. For our entrees we got the skirt steak, grilled mahi mahi, cilantro crusted tuna and the scallops. We absolutely loved every dish, except for the cheesecake at the end. So dissappontingly small that we had to say something. The waitress gladly removed it from our bill and apologized. Except for that minor mishap, we were extremely impressed with brass rail. Will definitely return and highly recommend! Yum"

  • "The food was great, but nothing over the top. Basically your looking at high end bar food, with a decent wine list. The price was a bit higher then I was expecting, mostly because a simple skirt steak is nearly $30 and their pasta dishes will run you over $25. If it was more elegant food I'd be fine with it, but for the food their serving its a bit too high priced. With that said the service was great."

  • "I had a lunchtime business meeting with a client. I found the Brass Rail to be clean and inviting. The food was excellent!! Most important, the music and other external noise was not overwhelming as is the case in so many similar restaurants. For that reason,. I would certainly consider coming back. Thank you"

  • "Went for brunch to the upstairs room, been there for dinner always good. Service was perfect there when you need the waiter and in general very attentive. Food was very good tasty had steak and poached eggs others had french toast which was very good. I think if you want something much better than a bar with the TV blaring you have to come to the Brass Rail."

  • "The chicken is some if the juiciest I've ever had, very well prepared. Really liked the dining area, but it does get loud."

  • "The upstairs dinner area was half full but the noise of voices bouncing off the walls were so loud my fiancé and I had to scream to each other to have a conversation. I have a gluten allergy that I inform server at the beginning. Than I mention what I am interested in and they either confirm its gluten free and/or check with the kitchen. I asked if the cilantro tuna was gluten free. I was told a few modifications that would have to be done to make it gluten free. The assured me the cilantro base was gluten free. What I was given was a plain tuna and when I asked they said yes its gluten free. So, they give it to me on the side. So wondered what happened there but let it go.The espresso tastes like watered coffee and they charge $5."

  • "Great Ambience, service was there, but the food was a big let down. Striploin was so tough I gave up eating it half way due to jaw exhaustion. Server didn't notice, but I don't expect NYC Service in hometown of Hoboken so was not surprised. After eating it, my guess is ungraded striploin they are hand cutting at $3.50/lb. Had all the tell tale signs: end cut w/Inconsistent thickness and awful fat awfully fat tail. They don't list grades on menu so beware. If you are going to spend $32 get the filet. At least you are getting you are getting your money's worth at close to $10/lb wholesale. Instead of paying the same price for a $32 piece of meat that costs the restaurant $3.50lb and you can't chew."

  • "My daughter, myself and a few close friends shared Thanksgiving after we served and worked with the Homeless Shelter in Hoboken...It was a great day all around. Helping people is the way to go and to top it off being served by our great waiter Rick who made the day even more special...He was sweet and fun...Good waiter...One of our little guests a two year old was in awe of him. We had a great time....Food was super..."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
