We found your restaurant on the internet when looking for places to eat when we were visiting Jersey City and we were not disappointed. Food was delicious as was atmosphere and service.

Our son took us here twice last year to this gem of a restaurant, so for Valentines Day
I could not think of a better place to take my wife. Their menu has many choices
to satisfy everyone for very reasonable prices. The quality and taste of food is amazing!
The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. I've been to many restaurants over the
years and Bistro Le Source is up there if not at the top! The best place I've eaten at!

Friendly spot with well done food. For non locals their parking lot is a real benefit in a neighborhood where parking is a challenge.

The food was sub par for a $65 prix-fixe meal (which we were unaware of). The 1st courses were fine, but the main entrees were disappointing in cook & quality. Also, we didn’t think it was terribly busy for NYE, but even so, it was rather hard to get a hold of our waiter.

The food is always consistent and good value for the money in that area. We have been going there for many years. Our last visit was unpleasantly cold! It was very cold outside and they couldn’t keep the temperature up inside the restaurant. It was freezing inside and we couldn’t feel our feet and hands...please install extra heaters in the entrance!

The calamari was perfect... but everything else, we weren’t happy with... The salmon didn’t cut it not the Coq au Vin.

This was our second time at Bistro la Source, and it was as good terrific. We went as a group of 6 for Christmas Eve dinner. Everyone thought that the atmosphere, service and food were excellent. The Mediterranean fish stew was terrific. My son-in-law has the Alsace sausage and sauerkraut, my daughter had tuna tartar and my wife had salad nicoise. My wife and daughter also had the onion soup and thought it was very good. A nice bordeaux and Sancerre were perfect complements. This is a great addition to the Jersey City restaurant scene.
