Hostess was terrific. I thought I updated the number of people in our party, but I had not clicked through to do so. Even though they were super busy she worked with us. Also my food had way too much dry mustard (corned beef Benedict) and she took care of that right away as well. Great service from the hostess. More

Talde - Jersey CityTalde - Jersey City
246 reviews
Asian | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

We had great expectations when we chose Talde for dinner and although we enjoyed our night out, we were mildly disappointed. Our server was great and the appetizers were phenomenal. However, my entree, skirt steak, was bland. It really had no taste and the soy butter sauce that the steak was served with did not help. However, a friend who dined with us took the prize as the noodles with short ribs were great. The only other issue we had was with the service of the food. We were told when we sat down that the that food would be brought out as it was ready. We assumed that meant that the appetizers would be served as ready but that the entrees would be served after we were finished with the appetizers. We must have misunderstood as no sooner than the last appetizer was brought to the table, the entrees started coming out. For future reference, I will order the entrees after we are done with the appetizers. More

Los CuernosLos Cuernos
13 reviews
Contemporary Mexican | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

I've been a big fan of Taqueria for many years and have been a JC resident since way before Taqueria opened. Los Cuernos has a similar menu to Taqueria with some nice additions! The margaritas were great and the food was very good! The atmosphere was pretty hip and the staff was very nice. It took a little while to get the bill, but that was not unexpected since the restaurant is still very new. It's great to have another Mexican restaurant in town that serves quality food! More

Contemporary American | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

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

Amazing venue for Valentines dinner. Food was amazing, especially the oysters. Servers and hostess were phenomenal! The only thing I didn't care for was there were so many screens that took away from some of the gorgeous ambiance. More
