Not a bad restaurant, but it was very noisy and cramped. Overall, not bad.

I love Skinner's Loft. The food is always good, the wine list is long and the desserts are delicious. It is a gem in the neighborhood - very nice decor that is eclectic, but cute and cozy. The service is always great as well. I highly recommend it!

The overall experience and food was great. The restaurant called as our reservation was approaching to confirm - from my recent experiences, most places do not bother to contact you after making reservations. They also remembered to check the reason we were dining (birthday) and sang happy birthday to my mom without us reminding them - this was a huge point for them! The food is amazing and the place takes pride in their service and customers, it was worth me making the effort to submit a review. Definitely worth giving a shot and great vegetarian options as well.

We went here for my birthday after originally wanting to go somewhere that didn’t take reservations and for a Saturday night we were wary to do so so I found Skinner’s loft and they easily took reservations online. When we got there we were immediately so happy with our decision. This place has a really cool, unique, comfortable yet upscale atmosphere. The food was fantastic and our server was so attentive and genuinely friendly. We ordered so much food we didn’t know what to do with ourselves. I highly reccomend the fried avocados and the lobster gnocchi although everything we ate was delicious. This place also seems like a cool and fun place to hang out for drinks and I’ve heard they have a great brunch. I would definitely go here again!

My favorite restaurant in Jersey City. Never disappointed. Good food, good location and a casual ambiance that is great for a friendly get together or a special date. A varied menu and good beer and wine selection will please most foodies. The pork chop is always a solid choice and the daily specials are worth checking out

Beautiful restaurant, unique menu, and really made it a special night for us, making a point to congratulate my sister and her new fiancé on their engagement.

What a great surprise! I went here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and we ate on the 2nd floor - the restaurant was super cozy and the staff were so nice. BUT, on top of that, the food was spot-on delicious, and nice portions too. Would definitely go back and recommend, without a doubt!

The food was great and the service was awesome. My friend has a food allergy which the waiter took seriously and spoke with the chef about her meal choices.
The bar is you typical fare with great service and popcorn!
We both skipped dessert but the choices sounded delicious.

We took our daughter for a meal. The main room was slightly too hot for us so they kindly moved us to the roof terrace where it was perfect. The drinks were great including a great Punch Drunk and the food excellent especially the pork chop.

Lovely ambiance. Exposed brick walls. Low lighting. Great place to grab a drink on the first level or go on a date on the 2nd level. Food was pretty good. Small plates were delicious.
