Lovely restaurant with delicious. beautifully presented food. Everything was on point and the popovers are mind blowingly decadent. Yum. Nice cocktails. The only complaints are that the menu is a tad limited, and our server forgot to bring the brussels sprouts. We didn’t even mention it. He was very nice otherwise. Will return.

The steak was delicious, but the crab cakes were mediocre. It's a very expensive meal.

We had a nice dinner. The food was very good. I found it odd that they won’t add a protein to their larger salads but overall, we were not disappointed.

Great place the food was delicious and came with sides which is nice. Popovers are amazing as is the tuna tartar. My filet was perfectly cooked. Fun lively atmosphere. The only set back is the bartenders need more experience. The drinks were not that great.

The complimentary popovers were the best part of this meal. I'm not entirely sure what to think of the very trendy, very non-traditional sushi menu. (Think deep fried rice beds with truffle shavings.) I ordered the King of Salmon roll. I felt like there was too much going on in one bite. The fish should speak for itself. The menu is generally overpriced but you are paying for ambience and a celebrity chef I guess. The drinks (Strawberry Fields and Pink Sangria) were not particularly tasty or boozy. The service was not bad, just not great. I left feeling unsure if I would return.

The meal was very rushed. We were in and out in 35 minutes. My wife felt that the menu was very limited because many of the dishes were too spicy and hot for her.

Even the signature popovers were peppery.

L T has become our favorite restaurant. The wait staff is very attentive but not intrusive. They are friendly and eager to make your dining experience an excellent night out.Our waiter recommended a new Italian white wine , which I had and may wife had the pinot grigio. Both came out chilled to perfection. The poppers came out hot and were very good. Next was the sushi, which was fresh and delicious. We both ordered the branzino and we can not complain about the portion size. We added french fries and they were crisp, hot and good. My wife ordered the special avocado cake for dessert, she loved it.
We seem to be coming to L T's every Saturday without even noticing that we are. We are foodies, and when you find something that checks off all the boxes, you return.

The experience was overall very good. However, I ordered Brussels sprouts which did not come until very late in the meal. It seemed the chef rushed because they were barely cooked and as such inedible. I did appreciate that the manager removed them from the bill.

Been there several times-drinks are expensive and the pours are very small-the sushi potions are minuscule and the $50 steak is not impressive-
Not fabulous enough to warrant the cost of dinner-

I went to the restaurant two straight days this past week—one for brunch and one for birthday dinner. We liked the food and the serving speed; however, the servers needed training before speaking to the customers. 1. The waitress told us only the package course is available and we cannot order the individual menu. It was not true after all. 2. for dinner, one of the dishes we ordered has been missed, and the pre-ordered birthday dessert, Souffle, was delayed and ruined the birthday celebrity moment. The main issue is that multiple waiters serve one table and could not keep up with the order history. I would visit again for casual meals but not for important occasions.

I came to LT with my husband last night and we had a great time. The food was exquisite. We ordered several appetizers and salads. Everything was excellent! My husband ordered the Alaskan salmon and was cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the all appetizers like the grilled octopus, the soy wasabi tuna tartare, the scallops, the salads both the one with prosciutto and the other one with beans and artichokes. Our dessert and drinks were also great. I had the Mezcal Southside, enjoyed the agave, cilantro and cucumber taste and end kick. Thank you to our kind and caring waiter and waitress.

We got here for burgers and dessert, and the place
was really busy. Our server, Jessica, did her best to keep an eye on things and our food was served hot, and was quite good. Salted caramel popcorn ice cream dessert was outstanding!

I came a few weeks ago with my Nieces and dinner was great but tonight not so much. I was craving the brazino I had from the first visit but was sadly disappointed that it had been completely changed. It lacked flavor and was just over all bland. I was advised by our waiter that the sole was prepared the way the branzino once was so I decided to give it a shot. While it is flown in fresh from France every 2 days that fish was not worth $71 AT ALL; in fact you guys should get a return ticket back for the rest of that fish because it doesn’t seem worth the money it’s probably costing to bring it in. I also waited quite a while for my replacement dish and it arrived surprisingly cold. Overall the appetizers were the star of the evening; the shrimp tempura roll and grilled octupus- these were 10/10. We had the rose Paloma for drinks; the first round came out great but the second round tasted purely like grapefruit juice and was evening missing the garnishes that the first drink came with. Our waitor also did not seem too helpful when we asked for recommendations of the menu; which again was a completely different expirence from my first time there. My first time; which was a Friday night our waitor was super helpful and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Over all consistency seems to be lacking here, sad to say I didn’t leave today with the same happiness I did the first time and I was really sad about it considering I bragged so much to my friend who came with me tonight of how good it was and we both left with a very “ok” dining expirence. For the price we paid tonight I definitely wouldn’t say it was worth it.

Wait staff needs more training. Wedge salad was very good but branzino was seriously over salted and the greens underneath were impossible to chew and not tasty. Seems like a dish that might have been good at the start but over time and without constant tasting and attention to detail has slid to the bottom.

This is one of my new fave places in Hackensack. With a handful of options for good sit-down food, LT is it!
Awesome customer service, get the yellowtail sushi and don’t eat all of your “popover” lol! Steaks and fish are delish!
