Le Jardin Ratings and Reviews
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.
Was attracted to this restaurant because of its classification as a "French" restaurant and because of its location on the Hudson with a view of Manhattan. It delivered on both of these counts although the food was just OK and the view of Manhattan is much better further south. The first red flag was the number of specials. When a restaurant has multiple specials, it makes you wonder what is wrong with the regular menu and if they are trying to get rid of product. The tuna special had a not so fresh taste but my veal chop off the regular menu and my banana bread pudding were quite satisfying. My wife was upset about the temperature of her mashed potatos, too cold. Mine were the right temperature and I also have to commend the complimentary bread which was warm and quite good. If I was a local I would come here again but we had to drive an hour to get here and I don't that is worth repeating again.
Le Jardin never disappoints. View is stellar, service is attentive without getting intrusive, and the food is just wonderful. Seafood is always fresh, the kitchen is very flexible about adjusting portion sizes or customized requests. I make it a point to go here whenever I'm close.
It was a great way to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Only thing that put a damper was that a party was going on it the room in front. It was a little bit loud but a bigger problem was the lights from the dj. Maybe curtains could be put up to keep the flashing lights and disco ball lights from the eyes of other guests.
The food and service were great.
I'm sure there are worse restaurants on OpenTable. I just haven't encountered them.
That awkward, awkward 10 minutes between being seated and getting our menus.
That horrible moment when we look at the menus and realize that this "French" restaurant is primarily (bad) Italian cuisine.
The bland, bland, bland, bland food.
This restaurant has a view of the Hudson river and the NYC skyline. If you'd like to pay a lot for bad food, a boring menu, a waiter who never reveals the daily specials, and passive-aggressive hosts, in exchange for a view of water...this is your place.
I have seldom felt so embarassed by a restaurant. Please don't take a date here. Go alone, with the hope that you'll win the lottery and find decent food on the menu. Hint: Order the Italian food which you can get at any NJ diner. That's most of the menu, and it's the only thing with which I'd trust the chef.
When we walked in, it took about 3-4min for the host to come greet us. We were seated without any menus. There was no glass or silverware on the table, nor did anyone bring or ask us if we wanted any water. It took about 8-10min for the waitress to come greet us, we were about to get up and leave, if felt as if no one cared what was going on at the tables. The food was ok, nothing special. I'm not sure why it's considered "French" cuisine, there are only a few traditional French dishes. The Baked goat cheese was good, but was not really warm on the inside. The mushroom ravioli was ok, it must've sat under the heat lamp for a while because the plate was scorching hot. The veal chop was sub par and the sauce was not good. The mashed potatoes were horrible and tasted like they came out of a ready mix processed box of powder mashed potatoes. Our waitress was good, but she was extremely overwhelmed. We were one of 6 full tables plus 2 parties of 8 people she was waiting on all by herself, and her helper was barely helping her. It seemed one of the managers would come and assist here and there, but this place is very under staffed. Sitting outside was nice and because it was outside, it felt quiet, which I really liked. I don't see myself going back.
My fiancé had hair in her food and they didn't take it off the bill nor did Management apologize. It was our anniversary highly disappointed! Not to mention I posted my review on Facebook and they have the nerve to personally attack me and then they block me. This isn't over believe me.
Great Location !!!!!! Great ambiance !!!!!! and that is about it . Once I told my waiter I did not drink he kind of forgot about us until dessert . I had to ask for the specials . I guess if you are not drunk you don't need to know what they are . The crab cake was frozen , I had to hunt someone down to get grated cheese and fresh black pepper. Overall , food was run of the mill and I received better service at my local diner.
