The Brass Rail Hoboken NJ
They took forever to come and take our order and forever to bring the check. The waiter was really nice though. The food was OK, nothing especial. Creme brulee with Nutella was amazing.
I’ve been here numerous times because I personally love the truffle meatball gnocchi! I ordered the skirt steak today and it was a bit too salty. It wasn’t inedible but it really wasn’t great.. For dessert, I ordered vanilla ice cream which was delicious but I think it was left out too long before I was served because it was a bit soupy by the time it got to me. The tiramisu wasn’t great and a bit dry that my boyfriend didn’t bother to eat it after 3 attempts. Not sure if it was an off day but wasn’t my best experience today food wise. Service was awesome though.
Had a delicious whiskey cocktail and a dish in which they served in entire octopus tentacle. The bartenders were knowledgeable, the drink was excellent, and the food was amazing! They have the best whiskey selection that I have seen in New Jersey second only to their sister restaurant nearby. Overall a great experience, I can’t wait to return!
Overall, excellent. Love the breakfast Mac and cheese
Great food and atmosphere!
They had a big (loud) class reunion upstairs and only a couple of tables left. They should have closed the complete floor instead of trying to get 2 more parties' money. Cheap!
My experience was great! I used to frequent Brass Rail regularly until I moved. I came back and it was fantastic! Nancy, the wonderful manager and her team took good care of us! The atmosphere is fun and upbeat. The food was fantastic! I highly recommend the Brass Rail and thank you, Nancy!
Friendly and accommodating staff. Tasty food, and a great brunch deal. Will definitely be back!
Loud. Very loud. Enjoyed the food. Ricotta app is amazing.
Worked out great for a party of 7. Older folks and the Young adult kids. Good time had by ALL!!
Went for the pre-fixe brunch for my birthday. The food was great , and loved the drink deals. Decent service. Would recommend!
The strip steak was amazing. I never had to ask for more water - the servers were very attentive.
The bar was lively without being overcrowded. Good wine list that is reasonably priced. We really enjoyed the steaks, which were cooked perfectly.
Good food and setting. Waiter was a little over anxious about getting our orders. He asked 5 times in a short time period, and we didn’t have enough time to get settled and read the menu.
Food was decent. We ate on 2nd floor; cool settings and architectural features.
Celebrating birthday for Dr. Charles with good friends
Solid pub-style restaurant. Noisy downstairs - by that I mean lively... and quiet upstairs for conversation with friends. Fried calamari and lobster Mac and cheese to share were delicious. I had the salmon which was not unique but done well. Friends enjoyed their food as well. Great beer selection! Solid place to avoid all the sports bars in Hoboken.
Nice atmosphere, bar and tables downstairs, more quite dining atmosphere upstairs. A lot of steps if handicap, bonus there is a bathroom upstairs. Food was amazing!! However parking is horrible. Parked in lot for 3 hrs was a 30 dollars. Otherwise would recommend this restaurant.
I changed the time of the reservation right before we were supposed to get there and they easily changed my time for an hour later. It was greatly appreciated with no complications on a Saturday night. Food was delicious. This party of 9 was happy and will be returning!
We went for a boozy brunch. It was too loud, service was slow, didn't taste any alcohol in our drinks, my French toast was burnt. Next time if we do go back will try ordering from their regular menu. I read so many great reviews so I was a bit disappointed.
The food was great especially the filet mignon! The white sangria was delicious get a pitcher it’s worth the $26!!
Warm, wonderful service! I was very proud to bring my manhattan friends to Hoboken for brunch here, and theyre very picky! The burnch prix fixe is such a good deal. Will return!
Food was not good and we were sick from it after. Won't go back.
Worst experience ever. It was my Wife's birthday and they forgot !!!!!!! How those that happen I called I reminded them once I got there and we were the only table there and they failed to bring a candle just a candle with her name spelled on the plate that's all I wanted. Just a unpleasant experience. Don't ever go for special occasions . ALSO I called to speak to the owner I ask when I can call him and I got hung up the phone today oct 22 2017 at 11:45 am . Not good customer service I would say.
Service was delayed and mis reported. Food was not great.
Food below par - server wore too much cologne that made us lose our appetite.
Fantastic brunch, the staff was great. My parents had steak and eggs and I had the fried egg & jalapeno hash, all were fantastic.
I have walked by this place many times but have never went in. I dined here on a Saturday night with a friend from out of town. We ate at approximately 7 PM, and the restaurant was busy but not too crowded yet. It was very cozy, with outdoor seating and bar seating as options. The downstairs had TVs with sports events playing and was louder. The upstairs, where we sat, was nice and quiet. The food was very good. I had the delicious honey glazed chicken breast and my friend had the Fillet Mignon, which was prepared exactly as ordered. I also had a mojito which was delicious. The service was very good. Would definitely return and eat here again.
Brass Rail is THE BEST restaurant in Hoboken. I have been on several occasions and have had lunch, brunch, and dinner there. I have never been disappointed or have ever left a drop of food on my plate. It is all delicious! Great variety and even better prices! The service is great with wait staff that is always accommodating! I cannot say enough great things!
Very good service and food you won't go wrong here
Always a great meal at Brass Rail! The quality of food (and the variety/uniqueness of the menu) is amazing. However, your service is weirdly subpar when I go. Our waitress was off-putting, curt, and not warm/friendly. Work on hiring better servers!
Pleasant surroundings and good very friendly service. However the food was at best mediocre.
Went here for Restaurant Week because my girlfriend and I have always wanted to try this place. Appetizers were underwhelming (I got the Tuna tartare with avocado. It was pretty bad and the avocado had ZERO taste. my girlfriend had the caesar salad, which had wilted lettuce). For the mains, I got a rigatoni dish wirh grilled chicken and eggplant. It was okay, nothing special but better than the apps.
The desserts were the best part but I do not think we will go back.
I would definitely recommend getting there early if you go for weekend brunch. My friend and I arrived right when they opened and within 30 minutes there was a a wait because of the AMAZING brunch deal. Our primary waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed and wasn't very friendly, but the additional staff was great and made up for her lack of attention and being a bit rude.
To noisy for business dinning, they would not tweek down the level the slightest, and they weren't close to full; now I know why they weren't.
We celebrated our anniversary here, which was also where we began dating a number of years ago. Service was outstanding and the food was great too! Brass Rail, thank you!
Great food great service and close to everything in Hoboken
I wish I could remember our servers name but she was fantastic! We came in on Saturday and sat upstairs (party of 5). Her recommendations were spot on from beer to entrees and desserts.
The filet mignon with mushrooms and gorgonzola whipped mashed potatoes was excellent! My only gripe is that grape tomatoes were an unusual choice for a vegetable accompaniment. I associate them with a salad and would have much preferred haricot vert.
"The Prohibition Pig," a mixed drink, was excellent. (It's bacon-flavored bourbon with maple syrup, served over one enormous ice cube and garnished with candied bacon.)
The second-floor dining room is considerably quieter than the noisy bar on the first floor.
A great dining experience! Highly recommended!
Our waiter was very friendly and helpful, since my mom couldn't decide what to order. The food is always high-quality and delicous. The $22 prix-fixe brunch is such a great deal! I always bring out-of-town visitors here for brunch and no one is ever disappointed.
