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.
Great food, ambiance and friendly staff. Thanks for staying open!
Overall everything was just fine. I was seated near a door which was a little chilly. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The food was decent. It was a fine experience.
Great food and ambiance as always
Ribs were lacking flavor, but everything else was delicious. Our server was sweet and attentive. Love the atmopshere.
Light Horse is always high quality food and very cozy.
Cozy restaurant with high-quality food. Taking COVID precautions seriously.
Food was great...I’ve loved the restaurant since I moved here 18 years ago. Only negative is the waiter had his mask below his nose. The mask is useless when worn that way and it made us uncomfortable.
We came on a Saturday night with a group of 6 for a birthday dinner. We were given a great table in a secluded area of the restaurant that was almost like being in a private dining room. The food and service were both exceptional!
My husband and I love dining at the light horse tavern. We love the ribs on the bar menu and the bacon wrapped meatloaf. Delicious!
Always a great meal. I love love the mash potatoes. They offer great daily specials.
Well now...great food and super great atmosphere in a Historical building from 1875 in a older area of town...love it!
Everything was excellent from greetings till the bill. Excellent service, amazing food, great ambiance. It couldn't have been better!
Been going there for 8 years and always a sure bet! I met my girlfriend there too n
I love the place!
Food was delicious as always including the specials. Service was attentive despite less staff. It was cooler outdoors but the heaters did a reasonable job. Perhaps could use a touch more lighting, otherwise, overall a great experience.
My husband Dennis and I have been eating outside at LHT almost every Friday since they reopened. Every meal has been truly great. This Friday Dennis had a wedge salad which he said was the best he ever had. I do not eat meat and did not try it as it had bacon, but it looked like the perfect amount of dressing, blue cheese and bacon bits. I love the fried oysters and had them yet again - three to an order and simply yummy. We always share.... we get the fish fry every week as they change the fish weekly. The fish is always perfectly crunchy and delicious - this week was shrimp, cod and another delicious fish. I had the Chilean sea bass which was made with a mustard seed sauce. Perfectly browned on top and also delicious. Got my winter coat ready to keep up this Friday night tradition!
Good location and ambience for a business meeting
Always a pleasure to dine there. They are a model of consistency, and their dinning room and bar are lovely.
Incredible food and menu and the waitstaff was kind and helpful. Definitely one of Jersey City's finest restaurant through and through.
Food is outstanding as always and we LOVE the atmosphere. We had rib eye steaks, meatloaf and sea bass. This visit we decided on coffee and cappucino with dessert. I would definitely skip it next time. Coffee was luke-warm and cappucino was really NOT good. Just tasted like bad coffee with some foam on top. I assure mgt will do what's needed to make it better.
The ambience is great, the service excellent and the food delicious.
Having gone here multiple times since it opened about 16 or so years ago, so very disappointed. I was here twice within a week. Once for dinner and once for brunch. Service was nothing short of deplorable. Waited more than an hour for our dinner without explanation, servers nowhere to be found. Brunch similar, servers just need some training or find a different job. My order was all messed up and hardly an apology just a lot of talk amongst themselves and basically insinuating that it was my fault. In any event it will be a long time before I go back
When we got there they only had tables indoors which I wasn’t ready to do yet so the host was kind enough to seat us at the “Lobster Shack” and have the waiter come all the way over there to serve us. I really appreciate their ability to accommodate us during this difficult time.
This is one of my favorite go to places!! The food is always great and delicious, but this time was a miss. I ordered the duck breast which was yummy and wanted a green side. I ordered the Brussel sprouts which were undercooked and under seasoned.When I spoke to the waiter, he apologized and took them back only to give them back to me a few minutes later. They just put them in a microwave which didn’t help at all. But I’ll continue to go back. Everyone has a bad night at some point.
Great Ambiance. Unobtrusive but attentive service.
Wonderful meal, fresh and unique ingredients, great service, good wine list and gracious hosts. Always a good dining experience and a personal favorite.
Very peaceful ambient. Food is great and has a very polite service.I would recommended the restaurant for a special date. Menu has different options but if you love sea food would be definitely a good option to try. I’m not a see food lover but I found a delicious New York strip steak.
Excellent menu, consistent in quality and service! Always a solid time. Staff was extremely accommodating and had a very pleasant dinner, not rushed, seasonal menu with more than enough yummy dishes to choose from!
Such a quaint little brunch spot to meet with friends and enjoy some great food! Staff could be a tad bit friendlier and attentive, but overall, it was a pleasant experience.
Excellent service, very good cocktails and great food. The duck rillettes were delicious. The Friday special was the fish fry and it was very good. The burger looked great and the desserts were varied and nice too.
Perfect as always!
Live jazz music and a great atmosphere made for a great night. Classy and elegant.
Love this place, they didn’t have what i wanted to eat, was sold out so was definitely disappointed
Wonderful bar and restaurant. Very cozy and great wine. The food was excellent along with the service
As always, delicious meal, good service and nice table by fireplace!
Always great at Light Horse! Avocado Toast is awesome!
We haven’t been to this restaurant in a few years. We’ve always enjoyed it. The food and the service has been very good, until Saturday night.
To start with our french martinis order, the waiter didn’t know what it was or how it’s made. That wasn’t the problem, but he Insinuated that I should order something else. I told him to ask the bartender first, if it’s a problem then he should let us know. When the drinks arrived, they weren’t shaken or stirred, poured at the table. They needed to be mixed- very odd. Service continued to go downhill. When our dinner guests arrived and before sitting down he immediately asked for their drink order. No chance to look at the menu. Our friends also noticed little things. Good waiters would normally check with guests over the course of a meal. He should have checked to be sure all meals were delivered at the same time. Ensuring side dishes arrive together and with proper utensils. But not for us. It’s unfortunate, this restaurant knows how to deliver service, but it didn’t exist on Saturday.
Excellent food, staff and ambience. Cant wait to go back.
