Jersey Restaurant

Italian

The state of New Jersey, or Jersey, is many things to a number of people. It is the Jersey Shore, the Boardwalk, salt water taffy, ferris wheel rides; it is The Garden State; home to the Jets, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, and much more. But to Mitchell and Steven Rosenthal, owners of Jersey Restaurant, on Second Street in San Francisco, it is more than that. It is Ferraro’s Pizza Parlor in Edison- dripping with not only great pizza, but old school family orientated hospitality. It is Chambersburg-- the Italian neighborhood in Trenton, where the restaurant doors are open day and night, for anyone to stop in for a reprieve of hunger, thirst, or the rush of their day to day lives.
It is these sentiments that inspired the Rosenthal brothers to add a fourth restaurant to their SOMA empire (Jersey being the youngest, after Town Hall, Salt House, and Anchor & Hope). Can you get true East Coast pizza out here? Hell no. Is Jersey going to fill that void? Absolutely

                                                                I hesitate to recommend Jersey Pizza, because I want to be able to get in there for dinner when I want pizza! The pizza is excellent, the chopped salad and the caesar salad are terrific. I've tried very few of the other things on the menu, so I can't really say much about them - but order the Pepperoni East Coast pizza, and you'll be very happy! The service is also excellent - you'll walk out of there full, pleased and you won't be broke!

Made reservations ahead of time because the last time I was here it was super busy and we ended up having to sit at the counter which is ok, but hard to have a conversation when there are more than 2 people. They also appreciate the reservation made. It was pretty busy at 6:00. We shared a salad, appetizer, and pizza. All of it was amazing and delicious. Definitely a go-to for me if I'm on that side of town.

We split a pizza which had plenty of toppings but was lacking a bit in cheese for my taste. Overall, while not exactly “Jersey” Pizza, it was a good dining experience.

There were two things we wanted to order that they were out of (at 11:45 AM). The burrata and caesar were very good. The New Yorker was good, but there is something in the sauce I didn't love, maybe like curry powder? The Bianca had lemon in it which I was excited to try but none of us really liked it in the end. They had the World Cup on which was nice for the during the work day. Nice atmosphere

                                                                Great place for a casual lunch in the Financial District. Everything from starters to salad to pizza is really tasty. They also have an awesome happy hour which I can't wait to check out. It's beer and wine only, but what's not to love about beer and pizza...? :)

                                                                The service was the best I’ve seen in a long while. The host had a great attitude and made room for us when we had to bump our reservation up from 5 to 7. Could tell the server was crazy busy but he got to us quickly and took our full order right when we were ready. Our apps and then entrees came out in good time, and then our server personally boxed up our leftovers at the table. Oh, the food was fabulous too! Even the GF individuals looks very happy with their salads.

I have been to Jersey Restaurant four times already but my colleagues have not. They were all raving about how tasty and delicious the pizzas were as well as the chop salad. The waiter was friendly and provided recommendations. We enjoyed a long lunch hour after a busy week.

                                                                Hi Nancy. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your pizza and steak salad, Nancy. Thank you. However, we are not part of a chain at all. Our ownership team has three other restaurants in San Francisco, none of them with a menu anything like ours. Hopefully you do get a chance to visit them as well: Town Hall (specializing in Southern comfort food), Anchor and Hope, a seafood and raw bar spot, and Salt House, serving seasonal American cuisine with international flair (and outstanding cocktails).

                                                                I think that pizza must really be the feature here, because I strayed into other areas of the menu, and the choices were limited and not very good. The service was excellent and the wine choices were great.
