Service was lovely, atmosphere was perfect. Food was excellent! Would suggest a few more vegetarian options but the vegan scallops were a dream as well as the veg appetizers.
I had a great experience with my husband and friend of ours.
The ambiance amazing and staff all-time cared about us
Eating on the roof top was a great atmosphere. The restaurant was clean. The service was great.
We were 7 that turned into 10 on a Saturday night, and they didn’t skip a beat. The staff was excellent the food was fabulous. Thank you for making a birthday dinner so special!
Was able to sit on the rooftop, which I would highly recommend. The food was delicious and the service was very good. They did not rush my table at all; we sat for about 2 hours. Would recommend to people looking for a more upscale dinner without an extremely big bill.
Great place in the heart of the pedestrian walking mall on Newark Street in downtown happening Jersey City. The Organic Salmon dish is excellent and the burgers are noteworthy as well. The salads are very fresh and try to incorporate some seasonal ingredients. We like to sit at the rooftop outdoor deck seating in the summer. The service is attentive and the food arrives in timely fashion. Nice mix of people and lively ambience. I find the beer menu too obscure and fancy, particularly if you are not fond of IPAs; but the addition of a couple European pilsners would easily remedy this minor issue. I can highly recommend this restaurant as a good choice to bring a date, family, or a few friends. It's hip and the food in very good.
Excellent food, very helpful and attentive staff. Could not ask for a better dinner.
Their olive is in point and not salty at all
Amazing place, staff was great. Definitely will be coming back
Requested upstairs ROOFTOP was happy to get that the waitress was very relaxed .. sat near the A/C system fan blew in my face the whole night we couldn’t move cause there’s really only 8 tables up there .. it’s comfy & cozy dec pretty .. scallops were very very skimp 3..? My steak salad was delish our friend steak was cooked to perfection his mashed looked creamy the bread was hard the butter wasn’t butter we didn’t touch the hard as a rock dry looking biscuits .. the sausage with the pasta was nice looking we didn’t get dessert .. the place is pretty the matride young guy greeting us in and out was very nice .. it’s a happening area I might try this restaurant again
Took my dad and siblings here for Fathers Day brunch. Fun and up and coming location. Everything we ordered was sublime- eggs Benedict; corn flake crusted French toast, steak and eggs, home fries, smoked salmon egg salad and avocado on toast! The fresh squeezed oj was the best I’ve had...coffee was good too! We’d love to come back for dinner some day.
First the decor is beautiful. We loved it. The food was wonderful and the service was great.
What a gem! With an Attentive staff, patient with big groups, they gave me a wonderful birthday dinner experience! I Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. The food was of high quality and generous portions. The ice cream cones at the end left a sweet taste in everyone’s mouths. Thank you for such a great experience!
the food was very food and the drinks were delicious. I would highly recommend it!
My boyfriend and I were excited to eat here based on other reviews and the menu. We started with the fried avocados, which we really liked but the rest of the meal was just okay and somewhat of a let down compared to what we were expecting. I really wanted to like this place as the waitress was really nice and the overall ambiance was cool, but the food was just not up to par.
Skinner's Loft never disappoints. Been here many times, booked 14 for my birthday, had to reduce to 8, but all 14 showed and the restaurant accommodated without an issue. One server with no support for our entire 14-top and everything flowed perfectly. Price-to-quality is outstanding, some of the best setting an ambiance in the entire metro area if old-world charm is your speed. Always a reliable go-to. Highly recommended.
Beautiful space, delicious food and drinks, excellent service, great location.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere! We were a large group that lingered and never felt rushed. Would highly recommend!
It was louder than I expected. Food was great.
The atmosphere is great and so is the service. We loved the appetizers (mussels and crab dip) and the fresh basket of biscuits with homemade butter. However, the entrees were small for the price so next time we would order a bunch of small plates to share. The drinks were also creative and delicious but a bit pricey as well.
Pretty sure its closed down, fortunately South House across the street was awesome!
Had a nice Valentine’s Day dinner. Fair prices, great food. Very nice atmosphere and great service.
Skinner's Loft has been one of my favorite resturants in Jersey City for over six years. Recently they went above and beyond to accommodate a last minute birthday dinner party. Working woth Fitz and the staff was super easy and a pleasure. The food is as always delicious.❤❤❤
Always a wonderful time at Skinner’s Loft I recommend it to everyone who asks where to go for dinner in JC!
The restaurant was clean, well maintained, and overall very nice. Tables were a little on the small side but not uncomfortable. The entrees were excellent but the apps and especially lobster bisque were underwhelming. Value was only average due to this. Our service was disappointing. We were here on New Year's Eve but early enough that the restaurant was maybe half full. Our server was friendly but slow and inattentive. I feel like we had to go out of our way to get refills and condiments, only to wait and have to ask again. It definitely seemed that as a party of 6 with an automatic gratuity we were taken for granted. The smaller tables were definitely paid more attention to. I would go back with friends but I wouldn't make a reservation myself.
Loved it! All around great
Our server Ashley was great! Will ask for her from now on.
The menu was quite eclectic. Chorizo aranchini balls didn’t taste of chorizo? Fries were in abundance, but cold when served. Waitress whilst very nice didn’t really help with the dish explanations. Did the bear minimum. Would not go back in a hurry. VFM = wasn’t great
Hidden gem in Jersey City, the decor and ambiance of this restaurant prepares you for high level dining experience. This location was a feast for the mouth as well as the eyes. Hope to visit again.
When I lived in downtown JC, we went there 2-3 times a week. It is just so fantastic. Just a local gem. Now that I am an hour away, I go there whenever I am in the area...there and only there.
Was a great spot, especially to get together with your friends and have a good meal. Definitely recommend and in a great location in JC.
The ambiance was beautiful especial when the sun went down. The service was attentive. The food good and organic. Wish the rooftop was larger to hold more people. Overall it was good.
We celebrated my Dad's 83rd birthday at Skinner's Loft. The staff was attentive, gracious and saw to our every need. The food was wonderful. I would highly recommend this establishment to others looking for a restaurant to hold a special evening.
Excellent service with a very attentive and friendly server. Great atmosphere inside even though the rooftop was closed due to rain. It can get pretty cozy during happy hour so make sure you call ahead for a reservation. The main courses, beer list, and appetizers were PHENOMENAL. Their mac&cheese is always a GO TO and the crab dip is great to share. A little more upscale than your standard bar and grill type of place - this is great for a date or special occasion. I love that they had a ton of vegetarian options as well.
This is my old standby, go to bar and restaurant. This time was a great experience as always. Started with an craft IPA and finished with Irish Coffees. In between, delicious food and exceptional service and ambiance. You really cannot go wrong with this place. Highly recommended.
We were a group of 8 and our table was ready for us. Several of us had the organic salmon and everyone agreed it was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend.
Some of the online reviews give this place a rave. Yes- decent craft cocktails and an OK wine list. Very good beer selections. And the inside dining areas are quirky and inviting. The roof top area is great. But the food is just dressed up bar food- nothing particularly well prepared. Steak salad had way too much fat on the steak (and for $22?). Fried calamari was what you expected, same with the turkey nachos. Too much Panko on the artichoke dip. Decent stout sauced pork chop with mashed potatoes- you get the idea. Ho Hum. Food delivery was VERY slow! It was over an hour before we got our entrees.
Decent food and reasonable value
Delicious Cod Entree Paired with a delicious glass of white wine.
