Service was attentive without being overbearing. The menu has a nice varied selection — you could make a meal out of appetizers or go for an entree. The French Onion Soup was flavorful with a solid layer of melted cheese on top. It was served piping hot. My seared branzino with capers and kalamata olives on a bed of broccoli rabe was out of this world! This was my first time dining here, however, I have had happy hour there several times. Great neighborhood spot—it was quite busy for a Monday night. Great addition to the Jersey City scene! More

Alex's was absolutely delicious! We had the restaurant to ourselves, and I'm shocked it wasn't more crowded. It seems like they do a great deal of take out business. The owner's wife was our server and was extremely attentive. We all had different specials, and the pasta was incredible. The Ceasar salad was also delicious and not overly creamy, which I really appreciated. The tiramisu to end the meal was great as well. They gave us a gift certificate to come back, and we're already planning our next visit. Cannot recommend highly enough! More

Beer Garden | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

Nice place, modern, with incredible views of the city. Food was very good, I didn't love my entree, but I am very picky. It was cold inside (very cold outside) They gave us a heater for our table but it wasn't cozy like I expected. We sat at a table with bench seating, not very comfortable. We ate early, lots of families...Nice staff, would go back in the summer. More

Like Billy Crystal once said , It was marvelous !!! In so from moment we were greeted until we said our goodbyes to the restaurants host . Let’s start by mentioning , it was our anniversary so I requested a nice and quiet romantic location and wanted to make it that little bit extra special . So we were sat upstairs overlooking the entire restaurant and a magical view of the large snow flakes coming down we seemed to be in part of a movie so, mission accomplished, romantic it was . Back to the restaurant experience Well, our attendant seem to be well versed it the art of hospitality , which made it that much more of a pleasant experience. The food was amazing we felt the chef put a little extra love behind his dishes tonight because they were to die for . Upon receiving our dishes they looked so mouth watering so we could not resist dividing our meals in half so we can experience each other’s entrees . Our entrees were equally as delightful as the other . We can not wait to frequent this gem of an establishment, kudos Liberty Prime Steakhouse. More

Filipino | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

Im a Filipina and I have been living in the Unites States for 5 years now and this was the first time I had Max's in the U.S. and it was very much like home. Some things that could be better is to serve the soup really hot because it was already cold when I got it and entrees to come out all at the same time instead of one by one especially if its only a small table. I had a reservation at 7pm and they're already out of a couple of entrees that I was really craving so that got me a little disappointed because I drove from Westchester. Other than that i still had a good experience, service was good. Servers were attentive. More
