I went for brunch with my girl friends and we really loved the food. The LHT medium rare is a great sandwich choice and don’t forget to order banana bread with extra cinnamon cream. The ambience was perfect for those who have a thing for vintage decors. The service was okay. 8/10 would recommend.
I love this place and I’m a repeat guest, the food and ambiance are wonderful. I was just thrown off by manager’s behavior this time. We were on time for our reservation but had to wait as he was busy with other people. Upon check in he was unfriendly and said we are late and that he needs the table back in 90 mins. Obviously he doesn’t have enough servers to ensure a timely order and delivery process. When our time came to an end he walked up and down in front of our igloo to gently remind us to leave. His server apologized many times for his behavior but I didn’t feel valued and we couldn’t even have dessert. His behavior and pressure diminished our dining experience and obviously the place was not equipped with enough staff to ensure a smooth flow. We then went next door and spent our whole afternoon there with more drinks and dessert. Really sad as this was one of my favorite places...left a bad taste in my mouth!
Amazing service and food!
Went there for Valentines Day! Had amazing experience! Food, drinks, service and even atmosphere! The price was very good for what we ordered and the quality of food. We were surprised with how low was the check! Definitely, will recommend to friends and family! Reliable and consistent even during these complex times! Great job guys!
This is a great place to relax and eat well especially if you enjoy fresh seafood.
Love the ambiance in here. It’s rustic and romantic but also great for groups. We shared the beet salad, very good. I had shrimp cocktail and asparagus for dinner and my husband had the pasta special. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was great! We sat at a table next to the bar area. Since it’s close to the door they Prp used personal space heaters that did a great job. The chocolate bread pudding was our least favorite. It was a chocolate chip bread pudding but was more buttery. I ate it but my husband passed. Cocktails were very good too. This is a historical building so I like that about it. We will be back! PS- wish they had filet mignon on their menu.
Incredible food and service.
Food was wonderful, service was excellent. Will definitely don't here again if I'm in Jersey City.
I never ate here before but I loved it! The servers are very attentive and the food is on point. With that and a nice drink, you can't go wrong. It was a lovely evening.
One our favorite places to dine. We got the coveted fireplace table this time 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
It’s very cozy so perfect for the winter. They had a really good guitarist/singer but the noise made it harder to talk. Food was good but not great. Service was good.
Outstanding food and service. Always have a great meal there. Will be back soon
They did not honor the reservation. Said it was not in their system and they were fully booked. Embarrassing.
Was great food and ambiance, just very cold by the door
Amazing brunch!!! Service was exceptional! Great quality food, nothing was disappointing.
Love the raw bar and cocktail menus. Great spot for date night. Love the ambiance and the service is always great!
Great birthday brunch!
Food and service never fail! "Igloos" are safe and warm.
Went for brunch and it was great. The dome became a bit hot. Food was great and service was amazing. Definitely recommend.
I been here a number of times but this night the food was not good. Very very salty. The waiter actually took a meal off my check. We were a party of 6 and everyone complained about the food and the salt.
Always a great meal here in JC
Delivery food & wonderful service . Can’t wait to go back
Everything was great! Service was phenomenal and their French onion soup was the best I've had so far.
A bit cold indoors with a single curtain at the entrance to prevent wind gusts when door opens.
It was a fabulous brunch. Just perfect
Enjoyed my dining experience! Would recommend and would return
Great service and delicious food!
Our table started with the fried calamari - light and perfectly cooked. We had to order two! Then a skirt steak - cooked to perfection! The pork chops - fantastic. Our littlest lady had buttered pasta - even that wasn’t perfectly prepared. I had the cod special that had a light flavor and the sauce was so good I could have taken a bath in it! Our server was busy but always available. Over all a wonderful night out.
Excellent service ! Delicious food !
Very safe set up to adhere to social distance rules
Great, as always! Love the artichoke salad
I am new to JC, so this was only my second visit to White Horse Tavern. Both visits were awesome...beautiful ambiance, exceptional service and great food. It’s so great to have this gem of a restaurant in the neighborhood!
Love the Light Horse Tavern! Recommend it highly but be patient with the service. Sometimes it is slow.
One of my favorite places in Jersey City! The coolest inside and great food. Hard to beat.
Whether it's dinner or brunch Light Horse Tavern never disappoints.
Great food, wonderful service and beautiful ambiance.
My husband and I just enjoyed a very relaxing Sunday brunch here. We sat inside and felt very safe. I’ve been here many times and have always enjoyed it. This was my first time for brunch and it did not disappoint I loved my fried oysters and avocado toast. As always, the service and food was excellent. We look forward to returning.
Excellent food and service. They make a great Bloody Mary!
Great food, ambiance and friendly staff. Thanks for staying open!
