Had dinner alone, and later in the week, group dinner for six. Both were great meals, with good, attentive and prompt service. The beef cavatelli is especially good, but don't get the larger size; the $15 portion is plenty big and very rich so I don't know why anyone would need the larger $25 size. Avocado and hearts of plan salad, soup were great too.
Everyone in the group gave great reviews too. Check it out!
First time having brunch in Hoboken! Lovely experience - staff was friendly and attentive (my mimosa was refilled seconds after I finished it haha). Food was pretty good. I had the steak and eggs and my friend had the rail burger - delicious! I ordered my steak medium rare and it was a little over BUT it was still very good! My friend loved the fries and the mimosas were delicious (sweet but still get that champagne note at the end). Lovely experience and I will be coming back!
They had it all. Great food, drinks and service. Great job by the staff in guiding our experience.
A business lunch for 7. Service very slow; not enough waitstaff. Portions were very small. Three in our party ordered the onion soup. It was almost cold; only the cheese melted on top was hot.
Coffee was also barely warm. Very disappointing as the reviews I read before choosing this
restaurant were generally very good.
I doubt we will go back.
Great food, great service, and well balanced menu.
The manager was extremely accommodating as our reservation had gotten lost. He could not be nicer and did everything he could to make sure that we were able to be seated. Not to mention, the food is delicious!!!
Everything was excellent, highly recommend the bacon-based cocktail and the arugula salad with butternut squash.
We had a big group that they were able to accommodate. The scallops were really good! We almost all ordered them.
The food was great and had fun different items on the menu. Everything was great except for the noise level. We sat upstairs and unfortunately the level of each table was so loud we had a hard time hearing each other. I don't know if there is a way to add something to the walls but because of that I don't know if I could go back. We were a table of 8, only see each other 2x a year and had a hard time talking to each other unless it was someone right next to me.
Delicious and affordable brunch with select drinks while you dine!
Had a great meal here and have to thank the staff for a accommodating a special request to be seated in a quieter area of the restaurant. Food was on par with the price, and the ambiance was excellent!
Standard American style bar and restaurant. Food was just okay, nothing special. Service was lacking
Food was average -- the service was attentive. Wouldn't really go back - unless it was the only restaurant with availability in Hoboken.
I don't know if they were not prepared for restaurant or they were under staffed in the kitchen but we sat down at 7:15 and left at 8:45, so we sat before everyone and we were the last left. We only order appetizers and entrees, no drinks, no desires. It took about 30 minutes for the apps and 2 of the 4 apps we got were bad and missing ingredients. The entrees 2 out of 5 meals likes what they had. The pasta was over cooked, the shrimp was overcooked, the pasta didn't have any sauce or real liquid, the salmon was bad and a little rare.
Bad meal but great dinner with friends. Such a shame because i had never been there before and have no desire to go back
The food and the service were perfect; only bad thing was the portion size of my main course, skirt steak, was so small that it was completely hidden by the bed of spinach and mushrooms. I needed to eat a slice of pizza about an hour after dinner to be full.
We come to The Brass Rail every time we want to celebrate something with a special meal. We ALWAYS have superb service and the food never disappoints. Their menu is wonderful, with many options no matter what you like to eat. They also have a really creative martini/mixed drink list that changes each season - we have a good time trying them all out. I'm a big seafood fan and am always excited to hear their specials. The Brass Rail is a classy, charming restaurant and the waitstaff is truly deserving of our tips. I love the calm atmosphere and the music is always pleasant. We left dinner looking forward to the next time we'll go there. I highly recommend this restaurant.
My wife and I were celebrating her birthday in city she lived and we met. Had not been to Brass Rail in many years. For 7:30 PM Wed, upstairs seating was empty, but by 8:15 PM. a thid of tables had patrons. Maybe not a popular night. Waiter was very attentive and food off regular menu was tasty. We both had salads and seafoof entres. No complaints. Nice feature was voucher for discounted parking lot one block away.
Poor performance on this visit; the kitchen forgot our order and the manager did little to rectify the situation. We were assured that 'our order was waiting in line', meanwhile other tables were served first and it took 2 hrs to have two courses. Food was cold when we got it. Halfhearted apology and no adjustment to the check.
what a joke- from the waiter to the menu-
TOO MANY BETTER choices in Hoboken- hey if you are going to the bar I am sure that would be fine- but as a restaurant- LAUGHABLE
I was satisfied. The effort was there. There were some flaws but no major ones...generally a good meal. It is not an elite restaurant but it is absolutely adequate...I recommend.
Easy to get reservations and they worked with us when we had to come late. We got the wasabi shrimp and lobster Mac for appetizers - both wonderfully tasty. For our entrees we got the skirt steak, grilled mahi mahi, cilantro crusted tuna and the scallops. We absolutely loved every dish, except for the cheesecake at the end. So dissappontingly small that we had to say something. The waitress gladly removed it from our bill and apologized. Except for that minor mishap, we were extremely impressed with brass rail. Will definitely return and highly recommend! Yum
The food was great, but nothing over the top. Basically your looking at high end bar food, with a decent wine list. The price was a bit higher then I was expecting, mostly because a simple skirt steak is nearly $30 and their pasta dishes will run you over $25. If it was more elegant food I'd be fine with it, but for the food their serving its a bit too high priced. With that said the service was great.
I had a lunchtime business meeting with a client. I found the Brass Rail to be clean and inviting. The food was excellent!! Most important, the music and other external noise was not overwhelming as is the case in so many similar restaurants. For that reason,. I would certainly consider coming back. Thank you
Went for brunch to the upstairs room, been there for dinner always good. Service was perfect there when you need the waiter and in general very attentive. Food was very good tasty had steak and poached eggs others had french toast which was very good.
I think if you want something much better than a bar with the TV blaring you have to come to the Brass Rail.
Love it!! Amazing Salmon. Best I ever had!
The upstairs dinner area was half full but the noise of voices bouncing off the walls were so loud my fiancé and I had to scream to each other to have a conversation. I have a gluten allergy that I inform server at the beginning. Than I mention what I am interested in and they either confirm its gluten free and/or check with the kitchen. I asked if the cilantro tuna was gluten free. I was told a few modifications that would have to be done to make it gluten free. The assured me the cilantro base was gluten free. What I was given was a plain tuna and when I asked they said yes its gluten free. So, they give it to me on the side. So wondered what happened there but let it go.The espresso tastes like watered coffee and they charge $5.
The chicken is some if the juiciest I've ever had, very well prepared. Really liked the dining area, but it does get loud.
Great food and service. We will visit again.
Great Ambience, service was there, but the food was a big let down. Striploin was so tough I gave up eating it half way due to jaw exhaustion. Server didn't notice, but I don't expect NYC Service in hometown of Hoboken so was not surprised. After eating it, my guess is ungraded striploin they are hand cutting at $3.50/lb. Had all the tell tale signs: end cut w/Inconsistent thickness and awful fat awfully fat tail. They don't list grades on menu so beware. If you are going to spend $32 get the filet. At least you are getting you are getting your money's worth at close to $10/lb wholesale. Instead of paying the same price for a $32 piece of meat that costs the restaurant $3.50lb and you can't chew.
My daughter, myself and a few close friends shared Thanksgiving after we served and worked with the Homeless Shelter in Hoboken...It was a great day all around. Helping people is the way to go and to top it off being served by our great waiter Rick who made the day even more special...He was sweet and fun...Good waiter...One of our little guests a two year old was in awe of him. We had a great time....Food was super...
Went there with friends this Sat night. Our service was friendly and accommodating. The Calamari, Wasabi Shrimp, and Mussels for Apps - all very good. The pork chop, Skirt steak, Salmon, and chicken dish we ordered were cooked perfectly and tasted delish! Afterwards went down to bar which was hopping with a mix of old school and newer tunes by a DJ with actual turn tables! The music was great all night and had us going. Overall prices for drinks and dinner was market rate for area and in my mind worth it. I paid $5 for a parking validation ticket at bar and it didn't work which was disappointing - not sure if I was in wrong muni lot. In any case, I will definitely be back and highly recommend this place.
My boyfriend took me to The Brass Rail for a special date night. I had their filet mignon with root veggies and mashed potatoes- it was delicious! We had been here for brunch once before (our first date) and that was also very good. Their selection is great- there are many dishes I wish to try, and I always have a bit of trouble deciding what I want, and I think that is a great thing. Not an overwhelming menu, just a lot of great choices. Enjoy!
The staff were friendly and very attentive. We did not feel rushed and the pace of dinner made it very relaxing as I was there with my wife and adult daughters. The seared tune was fantastic and can'r wait to go back to try the skirt steak. The pasta with the pesto sauce my wife had was outstanding. The portions were very generous.
Delicious skirt steak and were very accommodating.
Brass Rail is always my favorite for brunch... Great menu, delicious food - always enjoy my time here.. Highly recommended, as always.
Hoboken has many places most cater to the beer burgers and tv screens, great if that is all you want Brass Rail's upstairs dinning is an oasis of tranquility in a smart, relaxed atmosphere. Food was excellent, service was very good there when you need them, plus they have a good wine list. Can't go wrong.
I've been here for other meals besides brunch and thought those meals were good. This Brunch just didn't compare to the flavor of other brunch spots in Hoboken.
Finding a decent bar, with service, and food is hard the farther downtown you get in Hoboken. The Brass rail is a great exception to the college bars and Irish pubs. Try the Skirt Steak and the mussels if you're into crumbled blue cheese.
Service is great, however, ask for seating upstairs if you want a quiet night. Downstairs is a lively, upscale bar crowd and outdoor seating in the summer.
If it wasn't for the waiter that spilled 2/3 of the ice on the table the night would have been perfect. Other than that, food was great, the waiter apologized and the dessert was the best.
I love going to this restaurant with my girl friends to catch up. It is not too loud, and the food is delicious! I would also recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner or a place to first meet on a date. The cocktails and appetizers are good too!
