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.

Went there for my wife’s birthday lunch. Service, food, atmosphere & view were all great. Three course lunch special had very nice choices. Staff was very welcoming. 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!

Of the 7 courses our group had (3 apps, 3 entrees, 1 dessert) only 2 rated as even average. Just awful quality and taste. Dated decor, and amateurish service. Very disappointing.

This restaurant has it all - from the unobstructed view of the Hudson River, Manhattan and the GW Bridge, to the food (quality and variety), the friendly attentive service, valet parking, and warm welcome. We had tuna tartare and escargots with mushrooms as appetizers, and red snapper with shellfish, pistachio crusted rack of lamb, and porterhouse steak for our entrees, all accompanied by fresh vegetables. Each was prepared to order, delicious and generously portioned. Though we had let them know we were celebrating a birthday, we were pleasantly surprised when the waiter presented a beautiful dessert with a candle!
In rating the noise level I picked "energetic" only because there was a corporate function taking place at the time that was unusually loud. This is not typical.
It's worth a trip over the bridge to dine here.

I was excited to try this restaurant out for Valentine's day since my fiance and I are going to Paris for our honeymoon we wanted to do everything French during the year! Our waiter was very short and almost rude with us when he came to take our order. We didn't even get menus yet and he just kept asking us for our orders - we had no idea yet! My fiance asked him for a wine recommendation and he just pointed to one and then just continued to ask us for our orders (we still have yet to get a menu). When we finally got our orders in the service was EXTREMELY SLOW! My appetizer (mozzarella and tomato salad) tasted bland. No flavor at all. We finished our bottle of wine before our entree even came out - not because we're heavy drinkers but because we were just left at our table to wait for hours. Our reservation was at 7:30pm and we got our entree at around 9:15pm. When it was time for desert we were left at our table for about 30 minutes without any coffee (that was supposed to be included with our desert) before I had to walk over to our waiter and ask him for our desert and the check with it (at this point we just wanted to get out of there!). Our desert finally came and we had to wait about 20 minutes for our check. We don't live far from the restaurant and we got home at 10:30pm. Ridiculous!

The food wasn't that great either. I had the salmon and it tasted very fishy. No flavor. My fiance had the rack of lamb and he said it was okay. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. I would suggest to go to a French restaurant in NYC instead - I'm sure there are much better restaurants across the Hudson.

This upscale restaurant with wonderful Hudson River views is quite good. Service is excellent. Attentive and not over bearing. Warm bread with butter and tampenade brought to the table. Wine list is extensive and pricey with just a few bottles at $40+. Onion soup to start was hot and cheesey but slightly too salty for me. My wife started with a first rate escargot with mushrooms. I had a prime steak which was prepared as requested. Fries while excellent were commercial. Steak also came with snap peas and carrots. My wife had the salmon which was a touch dry. Both entrees came with a dipping sauce which I enjoyed but my wife passed on. We skipped dessert as we were full. All in all, a nice dinner.

Went for Christmas early dinner. Terrific view, but noisy. Nice service. My veal chop was tasteless and nearly over done (I ordered medium rare), but my wife's Red Snapper with scallops, clams and muscles was absolutely terrific! Desserts are huge and really good. Valet parking, thank God!

We love Le Jardin and have been there many times. But last Saturday was not a good experience. There were two extremely noisy Christmas parties plus a pianist and we had to shout to make our conversation heard. We think that the management should have told us when we made the reservation that the experience in the restaurant was going to different. We will probably go back on a quieter night, but not for a while.

We also felt that the food was not as good as it usually is.
