Great location, great view. The outdoor space is worth a drop-by for a cocktail or 2. Our meal was very good but not great. Try the cheesecake. Will be back for their bar menu. Old school.

We have been there few times, but never again.
we were 4 people, 3 of us spent the night with stomach issues after eating there. I guess food (seafood) wasn't that fresh.

There was a huge piece of plastic wrapper in the veal entree. After my fiancée choked on it and we asked them to take our meals away, they brought the check without the veal taken off, even though he didn’t eat more than 1/4 of it. It was a total waste of a meal and our time. They refused to do anything about it and were extremely rude. It’s a shame because the food is good and the view is lovely but we will never go back due to the way it was handled.

We decided to try the restaurant based on the excellent reviews and had a wonderful evening. The views are spectacular from just about any table, but our seating outside was beautiful. For dinner, we ordered the sea bass and lamb chops and enjoyed both very much. Definitely recommend the restaurant

We chose it because it’s on Hudson River. We sat at patio with decent Upper Manhattan and GW bridge view. Midtown and lower Manhattan are not visible. The ambience is nice. But the food is so so. It’s supposed to be French but really it’s just regular American. It doesn’t taste bad but nothing to be impressed either. A bit underwhelming.

Ambiance was amazing, food was superb! We ate outside - it wasn’t too crowded for a Friday at 8pm. I was pleasantly surprised as I couldn’t get the website to load the gallery but we went bc the menu looked great!

Live singer as well was excellent! Really a wonderful night.

We will be coming here again very soon! Definitely value for what you pay and the atmosphere is perfect for dates, anniversaries, I feel like it was romantic.

I can’t say I enjoyed my experience. For the class this place is shooting for and the way it was recommended - food was only okay. And the foreground “view” disappointed. I hope they’ll do something nice about that space that looks like it has been bulldozed.
The service was fast and very attentive. Maybe a little too fast - for people who want to have a longer conversation and catch up.

Tuna tartare was almost inedible. I ordered my steak medium rare and it came well done. The waiter took it back and my boyfriend had to sit there with his food in front of him while we waited for them to remake my food. He ordered lamb chops and they were extremely gamey.

Le Jardín offers breathtaking views, good service, and okay meals at prices that are a bit too high I would go back to enjoy cocktails at the covered outdoor bar, but probably won’t return for dinner.

Compares well to all of the fine restaurants in Edgewater, Fort Lee and Englewood Cliffs.

City and river view is nice but not as nice as the restaurants facing midtown and lower Manhattan

Noise level is loud with the music bouncing off the expanse of glass facing the Hudson River and the Upper west side of Manhattan.

Parking is by valet to an adjacent lot. Traffic tie-ups in River Road when picking up and dropping off diners.

Unfortunately Le Jardin which is a favorite restaurant of mine, did not live up to expectations. There were three parties going on at once plus an extremely loud band in the interior bar section, so conversation was difficult at best. There was a screaming child whose parents apparently felt no obligation to allow the rest of the diners to enjoy their meal if the parents couldn't and the restaurant did not could not ameliorate the situation. My husband ordered the tuna which were accompanied by cold mashed potatoes and it was overcooked. The pasta dish our friend ordered was also cold. The mashed potatoes were promptly replaced with an additional portion of cold potatoes. the remaining two meals were fine as were the salads.
So overall I would still say give the restaurant a try but stay away on weekends.

We were seated next to a large group who were very loud, so sometimes we couldn't even hear each other. The view is great, but we couldn't sit outside because they allow smoking. The waiter was very attentive but at the end we couldn't get our check. It took about 15 or more minutes. The food unfortunately was not really anything I would recommend. I've had much better French food.

Le Jardin is one of the best restaurants in Edgewater, NJ. My wife and I have been there multiple times. Their escargot is phenomenal, their lamb....well, wow - that's the only word that comes to mind. Their wine is of great selection, and their caviar comes with a great number of assortments. If you want a great experience, ask for Daniel to be your server. College kid in his 20s, and great service and knowledge of the restaurant industry. The manager is beyond. If you are nice to them, they will be over-grateful for your stay. If you're visiting, or simply live within 20 miles, do not hesitate to eat at this place. Washington Bridge views, great culture, and better food than any of the other "high dining" places in the area. Trust me, I've been to all of them.

Waiter, barmaid & valet all asked us back. New outdoor patio should be finished any day. That will be a great addition to a very nice restaurant.

Have been for Mother’s Day brunch 3 times and always wanted to experience it in the evening.
Not disappointed.
Great ambiance, staff was friendly.
Our food was delicious and wine selection is varied which is always a plus.
My chocolate martini was great.
We didn’t do dessert because we had no room but there’s always next time!
