The food was really amazing. We had the Hall Burger and it was the best burger and fries I ever had honestly. I’ve had fried in Belgium before and these were much better. The vegetables on the burger were so fresh and flavorful. Amazing experience

Staff can be overbearing at times, and then disappear at the same time when you actually need service.

Host comes off as very confused - found my reservation, then said "follow me", then seemed to completely forget what he was doing and turned around and told me to wait. Then after a few seconds asked my name again and continued to seat me. It was very strange.

The space and ambiance is pretty cool and the food was decent (although my husband had to send back his meat for not being cooked rare {almost sent it back a second time}). The service was incredibly slow - trying to cut them some slack as it's covid time, but given the limited seating capacity, was still a bit disappointed. That said, overall a decent place to hang out and be close to the water overlooking Manhattan.

Made reservations for a 6:00pm dinner and even though I was about 9 minutes late, my reservation were still honored. I was seated outdoor and loved that they had a contactless menu. I ordered steak from the entree menu and it was delicious. So well seasoned and tender. For dessert I chose to order the churro sundae. Again, the presentation was as amazing as it was when my steak arrived. While eating the ice cream on top of my churro I came across a piece that I assumed was just piece of ice. It surely looked like ice. Upon scooping that piece into my mouth I realized it was not melting and it was actually plastic that was in my dessert and not ice. I notified the waiter who offered to get me another dessert, but I was just to traumatized to even want to try at another desert. Other than that situation I would say overall great food, and great environment.

We sat underneath an overhang that faced inward to the restaurant through an open window and that’s where the waitress served us. It was great because it was our own little area. The food was absolutely fantastic and the service was amazing. We ordered the shrimp ceviche and lamb lollipops as an appetizer, then the steak dinner and I got the hanger steak gyro. Everything was delicious. The service was great! - Our waitress was very attentive and never let our drinks & water run out, the food runner/clearer took away our empty plates right away, & then I’m assuming who was the manager came over to check on us in the middle of eating dinner to make sure the food was good & also that everything was okay. Wonderful experience especially with restaurants being under pressure due to Covid-19. Can’t wait to go back!

This experience was pretty unusual compared to my previous experiences at Union Hall. When I sat down, I was the first one there in my group and the waitress asked in a patronizing tone of voice if I was dining alone. I wasn’t, but if I was, more power to me! I shouldn’t be patronized for doing so. It took forever to get drinks ordered, but when we did, they were out of just about every beer listed on the menu. After settling for cocktails and wine rather, it took another 30 minutes to even get the waitress’s attention to place our order. Upon ordering, they again were sold out of gluten free hamburger buns, causing one of our friends with dietary restrictions to then be delayed even further from determining his order (since we already waited 30 min just to flag down the waitress). When the food was brought out, everyone received their plates at the same time aside from me. My order (a flatbread and side corn on the cob) came out an entire 10 minutes after the rest did. At the conclusion of the meal, both myself and one other guest asked the food runner for a box to take home our leftovers. However, the food runner only brought one box out for myself and cleared the other plates away. After trying to get her attention to ensure we got a box for one of the full plates in her hands, she ignored and continued walking away. For the next 15 minutes, nobody checked in on our table. At that point, I went inside searching for ANYBODY that worked there to get clarity on the full plate of food that was just taken away which we asked to take home with us. I explained what had happened to the original waitress but told her we’d really only care for the check at that point. She came back to the table and began talking poorly about the food runner and explaining they had just gotten into a verbal argument in the kitchen about the situation. 1.) we genuinely were over the fact that the food got thrown away. 2.) that’s unprofessional to tell customers those details.

During COVID, the adhere the social distancing rules by give me a table by myself with my guest, away from everyone else.
They use QR code to scan menu to look up drinks and order from there. Server wore mask at all time and service was excellent. I will definitely go there again, specially when COVID is over. The salmon entree, I highly recommend it. *chef kiss* it was phenomenal.

Despite somewhat mixed reviews, I found the food interesting and very tasty. The restaurant week special of 4 tapas size portions with matching wines was great value. Hanger steak was one of the best I have had and mini-Sunday was memorable. Service despite midweek emptiness was just ok. Views are lovely. Would go back even without restaurant week specials.

Went for restaurant week and it was a great 4-course meal for $29. Amazing food and large enough portions where we both ended up having to take food home. I hope you never stop making that churro sundae, it was divine!

Our second visit to this restaurant. It was a lot louder than I remembered when we walked in but then it actually got a little better once we were seated. Very eclectic menu with some hits and misses. The snack nuts with rosemary and other spices was really yummy as were the way they cooked my salmon and my husband's octopus. The meatball bao bun was scarfed down by my husband before I could get a bite, so I'll take that as also a positive. The goat cheese/ fig flat bread was not only tasty, but beautifully presented. The misses would be the cucumber salad (with avocado) that sounded delish and looked delish but really had no flavor and my husband's salad (which is escaping me right now what it was). Our waiter was super friendly and brutally honest (lol). Great location on the water. Would definitely recommend for small plates and some drinks. Just not over-the-top impressive, which is a little disappointing when you know there is always great food across the water in Manhattan!!

Meh! They gave us great seating, but it was insanely loud!the first half of our service was good but then the waiter never returned after our coffee to deliver our check. We had to get it ( the bill) from another waiter and then had it split incorrectly by the manager. Ultimately, for the price you can do better. ps $18 for a split (a glass and a half) of Moët, is a ridiculous price for brunch in Hoboken.

We went for a family dinner on New Years Day. It was probably much quieter than usual. There were ten people in our group and everyone liked their meal. Very interesting food choices, well prepared, and offered with excellent service. Will definitely recommend and return. I’m happy since I found this place via Open Table as the location worked well for everyone.

The food was not good. We immediately felt sick after eating the $29 brunch items. The items on the menu were strange with no flow of a brunch menu. The "undrinkable" mimosas were just okay and overfilled with orange juice. The mimosas should be poured by glass and not into a huge pitcher. Someone should be walking around pouring the mimosas. I will not return to this restaurant. It was a disappointment.

Not a good experience, service is terrible. Had the scallops, plural because there were two, smaller than the diameter of a quarter for $14. So loud that my ears are still ringing but the place was only about a third full on a Saturday evening. They definitely need to work on the acoustics.
