Orale Mexican Kitchen - Jersey City
The food is absolutely outstanding, drink compliment the food nicely. You won't find a cooler atmosphere in Jersey City
Amazing guacamole and tacos
Went there for dinner yesterday, seated promptly. Server was attentive and helpful. Loved the guac sampler and bone marrow tocos and corn. Will definitely be back!
Good food, great service. Interesting take on Mexican fusion dishes.
Food is delicious! It does get very crowded and so sometimes it’s loud! Great drink specials!
Orale always delivers - consistently. Excellent drinks, great food.
Wish they had more shared plates !
Great food, great drinks. Great service. Street Parking tough but lots of garages close by. Ordered grilled octopus...delicious, tuna taco’s and fish tacos so tasty, thumbs up to the guacamole, rice and beans were great, queso dip was so good I was scraping the dried skin off the bottom of the bowl. You will enjoy if you love Mexican food.
Excellent spot in Jersey City, with amazing food and top selection of tequilas. Lively place, always with a good atmosphere and pleasant staff. Favorite Mexican spot in the area.
Great service and food is excellent. Staff is friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience.
Had gone before and had a great time - this time is just wasn’t good - the menu has changed and not for the better - the service wasn’t good and I was unimpresssed by the food . Probably will not be back
Food was excellent and service was outstanding. I cannot wait to go back.
Fantastic food, extremely flavourful.
The pork nachos are one of the great starters of our time!
Not somewhere to come for quiet conversation!
The restaurant had good food. It was very crowded though. It seemed like they were trying to rush us. We were there for a birthday celebration.
Loved! Didn’t know where to go with friends and didn’t want anything too heavy. We ordered guacamole 3 separate kinds of tacos and cheese dip. Everything was great. The margarita (house) is a must. We asked our waiter after we checked out to stay for drinks and he was very nice about it. Perfect just what I wanted . The price is a taaaad expensive for Mexican . I will be returning .
Excellent food, I keep coming back here often. However I wish the host takes it a notch down, they act like bouncers and behave as if they are in NYC. But the food compensates for the rude host.
The food was delicious! The service was wonderful... it was a big loud for a Sunday afternoon but it didn’t bother us much!
Our waiter was awesome and the food was even better!
Great service, fantastic food and interesting decor! Always a bit loud but that is really my only qualm. A+
Good food although a bit more expensive then other restaurants in the area with the same type of cuisine. Still worth a visit!
Delicious as always! Come for the tacos, stay for the margs.
This place is incredible! Everything including the drinks, food, and ambiance are all the best I’ve experienced for Mexican cuisine.
Great service and excellent food. Would def recommend to anyone looking for sit-down Mexican with swanky vibes.
Great food and the service was top-notch. Our server visited our table numerous times during our dinner and was always on point
One of the best ceviches I’ve ever had....
Love it !! One of my favorite spots in JC!!!
Great food, Great service, Great drinks!!
We had a great time, loved the food, vibe and the service. Will come here again and then again and then again...
Cool atmosphere, delish food, fabulous service. Cannot wait to return. One of our top 10 go to restaurants for sure.
Awesome place. Great food.
Wonderful place to eat. The food was amazing and the service was fast!
Really good good but super inattentive service on this visit...
We had an amazing time and the food was phenomenal! Can't wait to go back!
Food was exceptional, delicious and inventive. Service was smooth and quick even being a very busy, rainycold evening.
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.
The food is always amazing, and the staff are top notched! It's a neighborhood favorite!
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.
Service, atmosphere, and brunch was amazing.. Will definitely recommend Orale to friends and clients! Thank you
Great service! Delicious Flan!!! Atmosphere was great. Was seated right away did not have to wait at all. Tacos were good.
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.
Great food and great waiter. Overall great experience that I ended up going back the day after. Also got lucky to have the same waiter as before.
Great food and Margaritas!
