This place really made my holiday. My yearly Thanksgiving large gathering was cancelled for obvious reasons, so I went out to eat for the first time ever on this holiday. Liberty Prime could not have made me feel more at home. The manager, Ivan, greeted me at the door after the friendly hostesses checked me in. He personally walked me to my seat to make sure I was comfortable & liked the location. My server, Diana, quickly helped me navigate the menu & order my first cocktail. The bartender, Alex, personally came over to make sure it was to my liking, & happily assisted Diana throughout service. The food was outstanding & literally tasted like my aunt was cooking in the kitchen all day. We were so stuffed, Alex happily had our desserts packed up to go. This will be my new "Go To" place when I want to feel at home when I can't be.

The food was excellent, the service was attentive but a bit casual for the level of dining. Ex: we had to request things that I would have expected to be automatic - replacing small places, steak knives, bucket for wine, etc.

We started our evening with below average martinis. The tempura roll was uninspired and should have been served with ponzu sauce. Our salads were drowning in lemon juice and the side dishes were cold. The steaks were uninspired, dry as a bone and with zero seasoning. The only saving grace was our server’s humor. My reservation noted a 50th birthday celebration which was never acknowledged. We exited the restaurant with not one employee in sight. It was as if they had all gone home. Liberty Steakhouse is not worth your time or money. Do not walk, run!

I was not pleased. My petite filet mignon was luke warm and did not have a sear. My glass of wine was also delivered in an unclean glass. I had to return it for a glass without someone else's lipstick on it.

We were a bit nervous regarding the other varying reviews we read. However, the food was amazing, the service was on-point, and the ambiance was very fitting for a special occasion. I’m glad we got to celebrate a birthday here

Food was good - my boyfriend and I ordered the kansas city for two and it was more than enough for us to share along with 3 sides. Also, the service was attentive. They also surprised us with a glass of Prosecco for my birthday.

The staff was very accommodating when we arrived and seated us at a better table. It was the birthday of one of our guests and they sent a complimentary dessert to celebrate. Liberty Prime is by far the best steak house in Jersey City -- looks like there have been some staff changes, but the services was still really good and the food is excellent. They seemed to follow safety protocols, too (took our temperature at the door, always wore masks, tables were distant). We had such a great night, it felt "normal" again.

Did outdoor dining. Our server was friendly and attentive. Appetizers were good as well as the dessert.
Unfortunately the porterhouse for 2 and prime rib were both way overcooked. We decided not to return it as we were too hungry plus we hate having to do that anyway. We really had high hopes despite the hit-or-miss reviews, but it turns out they are that way for a reason.

This restaurant is on a lane of its own. They have good food but don’t compare it to one of the finer steakhouses. We also had our wedding reception here a year ago and that was Phenomenal. Our guest still rave about the food. Not sure if COVID had caused some changes in the kitchen.

Was pretty disappointed thinking this would be a NYC style steakhouse. Our server was AWFUL. May have been his first night on the job. Overall the staff very inexperienced. Hostess sat us right next to someone else....not cool in this era of social distancing. Steak was overcooked...asked for medium it was well. Sides were decent and the drinks really good...but overall not worth the price.

The service was very very poor. I understand that it was only a week for dining in but the food drinks and service was unacceptable. Reservation was at 730pm. We were seated fast but after that. It went down hill. Drinks were disgusting sent them back twice. Took our appetizers 45 mins to get. Waiter was out of site out of mind. When we finally were able to place our dinner order. It took another 45mins to receive it. It was our first time dinning here. We will give it another try after this whole Covid-19 pandemic is over. 2020 sure has brought a lot to surface.

It felt more like a bar place than a steak house. Bathrooms were not clean and the staff using them didn’t close door nor flushed after using them. We walked out of restaurant and decided not to eat there

Ordered a $40 NY Strip medium-rare and it was served definitely medium if not medium-well. Wasn’t going to send it back but the steak was dry so I asked to have it removed; NOT taken off the bill-just didn’t want it at the table. Another server or chef, I’m unsure of who he was because he didn’t identify himself, just came out in defense of the steak; was so insulting we just asked for the check and left. We would have stayed, ordered more drinks, desserts, AND paid for the obviously overcooked mistake of a steak but after that; they didn’t deserve my money. The serving staff was superb but if you’re unclear of steak temperatures and insult your customers-I can’t recommend.

A neighborhood favorite because of the food, service, and proximity to my home. Unfortunately during my latest visit the weather turned bad and, since we aren't yet allowed to eat indoors this could have ruined the entire meal. However, the staff were amazingly accommodating. They locked the front entrance and moved our table under the awning which overhangs that entrance so that we could enjoy the rest of our meal without getting soaked by the rain. These guys are fantastic. I hope they continue to thrive despite the pandemic because the neighborhood would be less enjoyable without Liberty Prime.

I would but if in the bar/lounge area only. As a regular at many steakhouses in the city I found Liberty Prime to be very pricy for what you get. Service was good, but the meat was subpar. The only reason why I didn’t say anything was because it was a birthday and the in-laws were in town
Lower level seating sucks and the noise from the bar ruined the evening
I’d be back for sure-
But for the bar menu and cocktails
Not full dinner

Positives: Amount of food was big! Two of us ordered 1 appetizer, 1 steak for 2, and one side dish and it was more than enough food. Also, service wasn't bad.

Negatives: The qualify of the steak. We had a Porterhouse for 2, and it was below average. The cut had too much fat and muscles and other things inside. One side of the bone was great, the other was bad. Also, the bread (cornbread I believe) that was delivered after arrival was very dry - almost inedible.
