I have frequent this establishment several times for their brunch and enjoyed myself. Sadly, this experience wasn’t as great as I know it could be. We were seated outside, which I get, given our times nowadays, but they had no heaters set up and it is nearing the end of Oct by the water in Hoboken. It also seemed that they cut back on portions. Generally, the tasting is a good size and when you do the reorder it’s plentiful.

These portions left much to be desired, some of the food was cold and it took quite some time to get the food. We even didn’t get some of the items to try (French toast) and we ordered extra wings and didn’t get those either. The service itself was doing alright keeping up with the volume. But I do think the kitchen was overwhelmed by the baby shower they were hosting and the other larger tables.

Lastly, I’m sad to say that when checking my bank, I was double charged for this less than stellar experience. All and all, I bragged about this place to my friend that joined me and I was disappointed and embarrassed.

Great staff and service. We dined outside so it was quiet and away from other tables.

My pork chop was raw meaning was RED... We called the waitress and she ask if " I need this cook more " I explained that I will not eat this pork heated again and I ordered another dish. Waitress did not ask any questions she just took the dish and left. No apologie or sorry. My disipoitment was when we received the check and I was charged for the pork chop...

Food was delicious. I just wished I had the option of just getting one glass of champagne instead of the all you can drink.

The place is beautiful with a rustic reclaimed wood look, indicative of the farm to table cuisine, and has a great view of the Hudson River and Manhattan, The craft cocktails were very good, as were the appetizers. The entree was meh and a little over cooked. The service was very good, getting the cocktails on point and giving us a 2nd round on the house to make up for the overcooked entree. My only complaint is that they could have paced the courses better rather than bring the raw and the hot appetizers at the same time. We’ll be back, but will try a different entree.

Beautiful restaurant with spectacular view of NYC. Couldn’t be happier with the ambiance and service.
We ordered the steak, pork chop and lobster rigatoni. The meat dishes were excellent and cooked to perfection. The rigatoni was a disappointment; bland and had no lobster taste, not even seafood flavor.
We also ordered several appetizers which were all excellent. The oysters were some of the freshest we had.
We will definitely be coming back to this place!

I dined at Halifax with 2 friends on a Sunday and loved it so much that I brought my parents back there 2 days later! The outdoor dining ambiance was lovely and the food was incredible. Our waiter, Marlon (spelling may not be correct!), was so kind and made great recommendations for food and drinks.

They were very accommodating offering seating under awning or indoors. The restaurant wasn’t overcrowded and we felt very safe. The waiter was amazing and the food delicious. We had ordered some spicy margaritas off the menu, and they were on point. Additional bonus was the spectacular view of Manhattan. Five stars all around!

Participated in the bubbles brunch and the food menu was extensive and delicious. You can have as much food and champagne as your heart desires (or your stomach can hold). Be sure to book reservations early because it is very popular. They have two seatings for brunch (11-1pm and 2-4pm).

I had the short ribs, it was tender. The potato wedges were lightly seasoned. The food was not exceptional, but nothing to complain about; overall the food was good. The ambience was great, with only 25% capacity allowed Indoors, the area was spacious and quiet. Perfect for a dinner with my older relatives. The view of Manhattan was fantastic; you can’t get a nicer view anywhere in Manhattan. I would recommend this place for someone looking for a nice view and decent food. I would not recommend to a foodie.

Also, I feel it is important to note, I am glad that I did not sit outside. Although the seating was nice (nothing wrong with the seating itself), there were two food trucks about 20-30 feet down the road that had their portable gasoline generators running. The fumes were very strong. Even walking past them gave me a slight headache.

The appetizers were great. The short rib was fantastic; however the special (bison) was really lacking. The ambience- being next to the Hudson, was lovely, but it got very dark. It would be helpful to provide some outdoor mood lighting.

Definitely recommend the salmon flatbread! As for entrees we ordered the lobster rigatoni and the braised beef short rib. It was a little pricey but the flavor was amazing. Loved the experience but probably won't return unless for a special occasion.

I come here all the time but my this last visit on Oct. 11 was not so great. The service was not by far what is normally given. I went for brunch and the server was not attentive as they normally are, the small bites are just suppose to come out we had to ask another server about the food. She seemed surprised spoke to someone and I guess a manger he offered an apology and said food would come right out...which it did but was cold. At this point we just reordered what we wanted and those did come out hot. I was disappointed this visit. But this was a very rare occurrence maybe it was an off day for this server.

This was our second visit to Halifax for the brunch service, the first being in February 2020.

We are not sure what changed this time around, but we had a horrible experience. Although the outdoor seating is in a great location, the food was bland, late every time, and rarely arrived at our table hot.

The staff was attentive in bringing our empty plates away, but we often found ourselves sitting for nearly 15 minutes waiting for the next tiny portion of lukewarm food.

Very disappointing overall, especially after our fantastic experience in February.

Came on Tuesday night for my partner's birthday. The staff was very friendly, accommodating and attentive. We shared a bunch of appetizers and cheese board, all of which were great. We had the cheesecake for dessert and it was amazing! The restaurant was pretty quiet since it was aTuesday however this place gets packed for Happy Hour and Brunch.
