Bistro La Source Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
I have been there several time and I think it is going down from the first review I have done. Still a good place to get your french food fix if you live close by. But nothing worth coming from another place, food is just average. The best thing is their parking available which is a rarity in the area. Staff is also friendly and helpful.
A wonderful neighborhood restaurant that has free on-site parking for those who come from a distance. The food is delicious—mussels prepared in numerous ways, and many entreè choices for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Reasonably priced prix-fixe also available.
This was our third visit to Bistro. Our first time was great but the second time the food was not at good. For the dinner entree of soft shell crab they only served one crab. I left a bit hungry. We gave them another chance and we were very happy. The portions are not large (it is a French Restaurant) so good to have an appetizer.
Tiny parking. Worth a visit.
We love this neighborhood gem. It never fails to disappoint. On Mondays they have their "Mussel Monday" special, where for $12 (+the purchase of a drink, which can be anything from a beer to a soda) you get unlimited bowls of mussels, and can alternate between their 5 amazing sauces.
Dined with friends. We were getting together for the first time in several years. We all enjoyed our meals and were pleased by the gracious service. And pleased to have the wherewithal to catch up without being rushed or unable to hear one another.
Went to Bistro La Source on a Monday for their unlimited mussels. Can't beat $12 for unlimited mussels. Choice of 5 sauces (can switch it up between the 5). No time limit and they don't rush you so they can turn over the table. Outside seating area is great, especially when the twinkle lights turn on. The white wine on special is excellent.
Loved our experience in this wonderful neighborhood gem. The salmon and local scallops were prepared expertly and with just the right seasoning. Incredible taste and our salads were nicely prepared as well. Rhubarb dessert perfection. All in all such a memorable experience and definitely a 'go back to' restaurant.
I have dined here 3 times since 2015, and each time the food has been consistently excellent and the service very good. This is a very well managed establishment where there is a varied menu that gets updated from time to time. From time honored French dishes such as Coq au Vin or Cassoulet to lighter fare like a wonderful steak salad, you will find something to please your present whim or long standing preference.
There is a very traditional looking indoor bistro dining room as well as a large outdoor seating area when the weather allows. Service is excellent and the price is very reasonable
We were very pleasantly surprised by Bistro La Source! Really didn't have any expectations and only selected it because it's a reasonable distance from Liberty Landing Marina. Food was excellent, service was friendly and attentive. I'll be back when I can sit outside and take in the awesome view of the Freedom Tower at the end of the block.
