This place was so good. We had another reservation somewhere else and because our group grew and the original place wasn't able to accommodate us we booked Frankie's on a whim. I am so glad we did. The foodies with us were impressed, the people that live for the drinks were impressed and we were all impressed by the ambience and service. Definitely, recommend this place and I will 100% be going back. More

Steak | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

Steak was as good as expected - and I expected a lot. Service was wonderful. Atmosphere was a nice mix of business dinner/intimate (in a good way). The asparagus was a little under cooked for my taste but I think they were probably properly cooked for everyone else. Absolutely lovely dinner for my he-man, steak loving hubby. Will definitely go back the next "occasion" we have to celebrate. More

The service was wonderful! The sangria is awesome, and they gave us a nice cup of soup to start. My beef dish was good but a few of my friends ordered the shrimp mofongo and the mofongo was very bland. It was still a nice experience, despite the mofongo. More

Italian | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

Superb service, excellent bbq wings, white pizza was tasty and just the right size, made well done just as we asked. It was Sunday afternoon so many TVs had football and the volume was a little bit loud making table conversation a little bit hard. Fried calamari was well done just like we like it and when we ran out of dipping sauce, the waiter brought us more. However, they do charge you for each soda you drink. NO FREE REFILLS !! More

We had a fantastic lunch! The food was beautiful, fresh and delicious. There were so many creative dishes to choose from. I had the Pignolia Nut-Crusted Viking Village Sea Scallops and they were outstanding - a sizable portion. My husband had the Lancaster Chicken breast which was juicy, tender and inventive. Things have really changed in a very positive way. We’ll definitely be back and highly recommend Hudson Grille to everyone. Can’t wait to try more things on the beautiful menu. Yum! Bravo! More
