    The duck is good especially with the blueberry sauce and mash potatoes to give you a nice medley of flavors and textures, oysters aren't anything special. Really enjoyed the pleasant staff though.

    Oysters were super fresh and their burrata with pumpkin was delicious. Also, service was friendly and while slow at times, was actually perfect for a nice, intimate Friday night dinner.

    The Kale salad with candied walnuts and dried cherries and Caesar dressing infused with lemon zest and garlic, so good. Having Maria as your server, the BEST!!!

    Brunch? Get an order of the pancakes. I don't really like pancakes but these slices of heaven are not your average pancakes. I got the banana & choc. So good. You can thank me later. You're welcome!

    The food is great, but the table service is AWFUL. If you go, sit at the bar. The full menu is available, and the bar staff is friendlier/more attentive.

    the avocado soup is pretty tangy, but my wife enjoyed it. if you're looking for something smooth and creamy though it probably has too much acid for you.

    Despite the place is nice, you will waste your whole time waiting for food. This is probably the slower restaurant in Jersey City and they do not mind. Sadly, no coming back.
