Lovely ambience indoor and outdoor dining, lots of room, limited selection for lunch but everything we had was delicious including the assorted cheese meat seafood appetizers we selected. The clam chowder was exceptional and a huge portion that was easily A meal in itself. Definitely someplace I want to go back to

Unimpressed with food. Service was excellent and great location and ambiance. But, at the end of the day quality and taste of food is why you come back and it’s just not there.

The food was excellent and we had the best table in the house, overlooking the skyline! The oysters were so fresh and amazing and the caviar with the brioche was so so tasty. It was not busy at all and so relaxing and quiet. Highly recommend date nights on Sunday nights. <3

Beautiful place, food on the most part was worth the prices. Drinks were as you’d expect. I’d say the best time to come here would be brunch, they have great specials. Amazing atmosphere and views.

Service was horrible.

Waitress asked if we knew the price of glasses of champagne as if we could not afford the glasses.

Wait was too long for the orders and even to receive the bill.

Overall the service was horrendous….

Was great food, people and ambiance but the service wasn’t not great. We were seated for 20 mins before anyone came over to give us water , take a drink order or even give us a menu.

I went there on my friend’s birthday during Covid, it was awesome and quiet . I brought my boyfriend there, it was his first time and he liked the place. He had the seafood stew, I tasted it, it was great, he liked it. I had the Amish chicken, unfortunately it was not as great as it was the first time I was there. I ate it anyway, although they forgot to bring me my side, it came when the chicken was half way through.
Overall, it’s fantastic!!!

service was extremely slow. like our appetizers came out before our drinks slow. beautiful place but seems understaffed, our waitress was literally running from inside to outside serving tables all over the restaurant. also more expensive than some restaurants in manhattan. over $200 for 2 people 1 cocktail each one main dish and one app each.

we've been here several times but mostly come back only for the weekend brunch which offers a variety of sample dishes and/or regular entrees and the food is good while the service is average to good. if you haven't gone you should give it a try.

The atmosphere was absolutely gorgeous. The views were impeccable. That being said, I have never been to a restaurant where they tried to bus my table to fast and aggressively, coming up to us every 10 minutes asking if we were done yet. I expected more from the food taste wise as the menu was very advanced and interesting.

5.5/10. Was a favorite pre covid but recent indoor dining for a birthday event wasnt as great. The set up for brunch was ok, 2 different seating windows. Did not like that the restaurant wasn't clear that the 2 hr limit meant patrons leaving after 2 hrs. The impression was 2hrs for for food and drink service & not eating time. Arrived on time but Food took over 30mins to arrive at our table and had to rush through eating and drinking after we were informed 5 mins past the brunch window that we had to leave. Dont like to waste food. The restaurant could have been clear and account for 20-30min for patrons to finish up. Could have scored higher but this experience was a no-no.

We reserve brunch buffet. However, the food was served really slow. Taste just mediocre. The worst thing is they told us there is no smoked salmon at the end (after we almost done and we asked why there is no smoked salmon).... really disappointed. Service fee is pretty expensive but service was bad.

Had lunch during the week with my mom. It was a Wednesday so I think they were probably understaffed in the kitchen. Food coming out was very slow. The waiter was hustling hard so not really anyone’s fault. The Caesar salad with white anchovies was excellent and big portion. My chicken sandwich was good, just a little dry, and the fries had too much paprika IMO. My mom said her burger seemed undercooked in the middle like it was frozen before and didn’t quite finish cooking. She is fussy so I take with grain of salt but at these prices I think she deserves to be fussy. She had a cappuccino she said did not taste good either. View is beautiful and inside of restaurant very nice. Something a little odd...they let this guy at the table next to us stay on his FaceTime at full volume...it was very distracting. I wish they would have told him to take his call outside. I would give it another shot but wouldn’t be one of my top places to eat in Hoboken.

The wait staff was delightful and sitting on the river is always a treat. But we were really impressed with the food. The shrimp sliders were special as was the sea bass tartare. And don’t skip the spiced cheesecake. Worth the calories. I will be back.

Basic trendy brunch place that’s all about profit. Wait staff serves your food then disappears. Food was brutal. Don’t go if you’re looking for an actual good meal.

Took my mother & Aunt to Halifax on Sunday for mothers day. The waiter took about 20-25min to take our order and that was about the last time we saw him until it was time for the check. We did the bubbles brunch menu and each course was was lackluster, some of the food did not taste cooked enough or warm.
The only options for drinks were champagne and bloodymarys, I would have been fine paying for a bottle of wine or even a beer but we could not get our waiter to even order it.
They dropped the check so fast not even asking how everything was or asking if we wanted to order more food.

We left Halifax unimpressed and unsatisfied.
We all tried to be understanding with coming back from COVID and restaurants getting back on their feet but this was just bad.
