The food was delicious! The service was wonderful... it was a big loud for a Sunday afternoon but it didn’t bother us much!

Good food although a bit more expensive then other restaurants in the area with the same type of cuisine. Still worth a visit!

The service was really bad. When we got seated and placed the order, the server told us that we have to place all the entree order in one go and CANNOT order more food, if needed. I have never heard this one before and when I confronted him, he goes “it’s busy today and you learn something new”. Didn’t appreciate the service provided.

The food overall is average and pricy for a Mexican place. You are better off eating at Taqueria downtown. If don’t make a reservation, your wait time can vary from 30-90 minutes, depending on day and time.

We love the food here - I'd say some of the best in Jersey City. The noise level is always just a bit much though dinner is manageable - brunch is deafening. It is expensive - you could get a comparable meal in the city for less but I guess in this case you are paying for NOT heading over the river? Again though, food is delicious.

This is a cool place to be seen. It is crowded, loud and attracts a young and hip crowd. We had to wait for our reservation and the bar is packed tight. The wait staff is inexperienced and unapologetically not great. The waiter dropped a tray of plates when clearing the table next to ours. He picked up the plates and left the nasty left-over food and chicken bones on the floor next to us for us to enjoy. Our waitress never brought part of our order. The food is interesting and the guac was good. It is a good place for loud conversation and groups, but not a quality dining experience.

We just moved to Jersey City and the food situation has been hit or miss. Orale is the singular exception, every single thing we had was fantastic. The service was attentive enough, unfriendly, but that’s ok, b/c we weren’t there to party with the staff. Back to the food, everything we fresh and delish. Will definitely be back.

Where do I begin, this place puts the d in dining. The establishment decor is so fun and festive, which automatically puts you in a good mood. The waitstaff is so accommodating and friendly, the food is amazing and the drinks are to die for! Me and my fiancé love coming here to have good food in a chill environment that won’t break the bank.
