The bartender who has been there for a couple years now is a class act (wearing a NY Yankees mask). He makes coming to Brass Rail such an awesome experience. His recommendations are always on point and his friendly, laid back charisma is what this world needs more of. Several friends of mine will even go just to see and support him.

The food is always great. The brunch menu is a nice way to taste different items, since the menu changes seasonally. Definitely one of my favorite places in Hoboken. Be back soon!

PS- They are strictly enforcing all COVID19 rules which is always a relief to see!

Great food and service overall. Would go back again.

Only thing negative I have to say is that the chairs outside are a bit uncomfortable and you can get an uneven table becuase the sidewalk is a bit slanted.

I had Mom in town and this is close to my place so it was easy. Food was excellent (we had the short rib and rigatoni both great). Very quick service and great social distancing with the table setups. Very friendly staff who checked on us regularly. All around a lovely meal!

The food was fantastic! We had the ribs as app and they were well seasoned and tender- my husband had steak and I had a meatball/ gnocchi dish- all delicious

The guava frose was refreshing and my husband also enjoyed the cocktail he ordered (Southern tea)

My only complaint was that the waitress never came to let us know it was last call and we were ready to order dessert and coffee I also understand that we are in a pandemic and that we sat at 9pm but it would have been nice.

We will def go back again

We had a lovely time. Our waitress was the nicest and most patient person ever. It took a bit long for our orders to come to us but it was a nice outdoor dining experience given the circumstances with COVID-19. Overall, wonderful experience and would recommend to others.

The food was pretty good, but they did not cook the meat at the requested level. The meat was overcooked to my liking. The service was somewhat slow and some of the servers had a negative attitude. However, I enjoyed the overall ambiance and would give it another chance.

Food was terribly dissapointing. The Pad Thai was basically rice noodles with way too much soy sauce poured on top - none of the flavors that make pad thai delicious (like lime or peanuts, etc). I pointed out the pools of soy sauce in my bowl to our waitress (and that the other bowl of pad thai at our table was a significantly lighter shade of brown) and she replaced it with the risotto. The flavor of the risotto was a little too sweet but interesting but soupy like a broth. Didn't seem like the right consistency. It was mediocre. Outdoor space was nice and the waitstaff were nice. Very pricey for the quality of food.

The service was really good and the food was great. A complaint I currently have is that the tables were not stable but after calling the waitress, the issue was then fixed. Another complaint I have is that the tables outdoors were to close to the sidewalk where pedestrians would walk passed not respecting the social distancing rule.

Great service. A bit pricey. Food was above average but ultra fast to come out. Short ribs were plentiful but ok. Steak and the pasta dish with truffle meatballs were excellent.

We came for brunch and sat outside because of COVID. 2/3 of tables have umbrellas or shade, try for one of those on a summer day. The food, service and price were each very good. Food was visually appealing and fresh. Service attentive. The fixed price brunch is a good value - app., entree and cocktail, several choices for each. Extra cocktails just $5. I'd go back again.

Not a great dining experience at all. I understand times are different with only outdoor dining available however our service was plain awful. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Gris that came out in a strange carafe type bottle? We said we got a bottle of wine, what is this? Our server insisted it was correct and ran off instead of pouring us a sip to try. We each had a sip and it tasted like apple juice. We sent it back and got an actual bottle of a different white wine. After that sadly it didn’t get much better. We ordered an appetizer and then meals, but they brought our all 3 dishes at the same time, which could barely fit on our tiny two person table. The food was not great and we felt rushed at this point to hurry up and pay our checks. I used to enjoy this place for cocktails and apps but unfortunately don’t think I will be returning anytime soon.
