We were here on all you can eat mussel Monday. The smell of the broth was great but we did not eat the mussels. The calamari was excellent and the brazino with lemon caper sauce was outstanding. Despite how busy they were, our server got our drinks and food to the table very quickly.

I had never been there before so I rolled the dice after reading the reviews on OpenTable. I have grown tired of pricey Hoboken haunts with so-so food at our usual haunts there. My guests and I were not disappointed. Since it was my granddaughter’ birthday, we were all pleased with my choice. The menu offered variety and the six of us something different. All us were pleased with our choices and would not hesitate to return.

My favorite spot. Bistro La Source has a bit of everything, from ambience to reasonable acoustics, a happy vibe and, oh, delicious food!
The servers are all so attentive and polite. The bar is also a fun place to hang out. I highly recommend it!

The place is great and also the service, but the food is below average, except for the cheese plate, which was delicious. My risotto was a simple rice and it was a bit disappointing.

his was a fantastic find, off the beaten track but honestly better than the three times as expensive pretense of New York city. My view, Jersey City is the up and coming place to be.

It was a pre fix menu for Thanksgiving. Escargot was a bit too salty n over cooked but seafood stew was very good. Small place n nice ambiance though a bit too loud. We had a nice corner table so it was overall a nice experience.

four choices of sauce with mussels, we tried the curry and the Thai and both were excellent. The Niçoise salad had a huge piece of ahi, shrimp pasta was very good. Lobster bisque had pieces of lobster and was delicious. We will definitely go back when we visit next! And our kids said that they will return.

Lovely place in Jersey City. I didn’t look at dinner menu but I imagine it’s as good as lunch menu — especially if you like moules frites.

I have been thinking ever since we left that I should leave a review on this place. It was excellent!!!
Great atmosphere and THE BEST fish fry we both have ever had! The food came out so hot and service was great. They have a pretty diverse menu, which is good as I have a lot of dietary restrictions.

It took over 20 min to get our bottle of white wine, which was warm. Service was the slowest I’ve had in Jersey City. It was 80 degrees outside so we sat inside, only to realize it was hotter inside than out. The food was decent but not worth waiting around between courses, never having anyone check on you, and sitting there uncomfortably hot for what could have been an hour and ended up being 2.

Rachel was a terrible waitress who ignored our party but served the two tables next to us with perkiness and a smile. We felt sincerely discriminated against. It took us 40 minutes after finishing our entrees before she even came back with the dessert menu. It took another 20 minutes after that to get our desserts. It was not worth the wait either. When paying, we couldn't even find her to get our check. We just went and found another waiter to grab our check and pay.

Bistro La Source is our go-to neighborhood restaurant with authentic French food that even my husband, who lived in Paris for years, agrees is superb. We took friends to dinner there and all had eaten on France and each pronounced the following:
best calamari I’ve ever had...
Best mussels I’ve ever had...
Best steak frites I’ve ever had...
It’s a gem. We’re grateful it’s here

My wife and I discovered this gem in our ongoing search for a good French restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised to find this Bistro, with an all you can eat Mussels Monday which offers four or five different flavors of delicious mussels. The fried chicken dish will amaze you. It has a casual atmosphere, but definitely a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.
