This venue really disappoints. On first impressions it looks great. Classy establishment, live music and friendly staff. The menu is quite limited but the vibe gives it the feel of, offer little and do it really well. How restaurants should be rather than offering a huge selection that they will never be able to do right. However the food was a massive let down, especially compared to the venue itself. The only way I can describe it is cheap bar food disguised in a charming venue. The chicken, served with boxed pasta, had a soapy taste to so much so that it wasn't something I could finish. The short rib however was well cooked but presented like it should be in an average bar. The location and vibe must be holding this place higher in rating than it deserves. Either that or the chef was off that night and it didn't meet its usual standard. Left very disappointed, would not recommend.
My husband and I had a lovely dinner here last night. The owner, Juan, is very engaging. There was music in the other room but we preferred to stay out by the bar area. I had the rib eye special and it was delicious. My husband had the Seafood Pasta and he really enjoyed it. This was a great find and we’ll be back next time we are in Hoboken
The staff was very nice and the food tasted great. For what came out to about 30 per person, (no alcohol purchased) it was incredibly small portions. The Eggs Bella Vista tells you it comes with Argentinian sausages but what you actually get is one sausage split in half. The home style potatoes were great but you could fit the serving in the palm of a child's hand. It's a shame, because the staff were so nice and dutiful and the food tastes great. 1 English muffin for $4, that was soft and limp, was supposedly toasted. The average brunch or breakfast spot gives you toast with your meal, here you have to buy it and it's not even done well. We left hungry and went to Rumba's in Jersey City for a 2nd meal that wound up costing about $5 a person. Never again.
Came here with my husband for a romantic dinner, given the great rating on Google Reviews, but unfortunately it’s overrated. The food is fairly unremarkable—the quality of the food was under average which is a real disappointment given the prices. The only good thing about this restaurant is the cute ambiance.
We had a great dinner experience at Amanda's, the place has an old french bistro style and is very pretty and not pretentious. All our dishes were delicious, but the short rib was amazing, together with perfect mashed potatoes and the gravy it felt like a loving comforting hug. They also had live music that we very much appreciated. The walls are full of beautiful art peaces. The only downside is that it was a bit pricey, but we knew that going in. I totally think it was worth it!
