Battello Ratings and Reviews

For an evening out with friends, this is an excellent place to come. The service, food, and wine list are all superb. Ensure you request an outside table with your reservation, it doesn't hurt to call and confirm your request. Come early to make sure you can get parking on the wharf, this is a popular place and the parking fills up quickly.

I have been to Battello on numerous occassions and I always leave with a smile on my face. The views of the harbor and NYC skyline are unbeatable. The food can be a little pricey, but everything I have eaten there has been exceptional.

Battelo's is way overpriced for the miniscule portion size. Server was very nice, but I will not be back. If you charge high prices, you better serve good food and Much, much much more of it. I left hungry and had to go to a diner.

Everything was perfect. We ate out on the terrace and it was a perfect sunny, breezy day with excellent views of Manhattan. Very relaxing environment. Drinks and food were great. Our server, Katrina was amazing. We came in close to closing time (we were unaware lunch ended at 2:30) and she didn't make us feel rushed at all. It was our last day in NYC area and this was the perfect restaurant to end our trip on.

I didnt like the fact the "Chef tasting" menu wasnt avaliable for one person and it didnt say anything about it on the website. Its either 2 ppl or you cant do it. Unless u pay $30 extra if you are ordering the steak which we were confused about because it says on the menu +$15.

We have always enjoyed Battello. Food and service was always good but this time was very different. I had the lobster frittata and it had absolutely no flavor. The coffee was burnt. Tasted like it sat in the pot overnight! The waiter seemed as though it was his first day. Probably won't go back. Very disappointed.

Great food. Expansive wine and beer list. Excellent service. Decor is interesting and engaging - very pretty.. Very loud, so not a place for an intimate conversation, but that should not dissuade from going. Overall, a great experience. And this was not my first, and not my last, visit!

I am planning my baby shower here and I have to say I loved everything on the brunch menu. Everything was delicious and the decor, ambiance and view are amazing!! It's a real gem in the Newport area of Jersey City. Loved watching the boats go by :)

Service was horrendous. One of our meals was not at all as described on the menu. Entrees were served 90 minutes after we finished our appetizers.
Our waiter was never clearly defined. One person told us he was taking out drink order but was not our waiter, he was the only person we saw all evening.
We were told 3 times that dinner would be out shortly, the last by the manager. Dinner came 30 minutes after his visit.
We finished dinner in 10 minutes and left. Manager took an insulting 10% off the bill.
Avoid this one. Many better options in the area.

Place looks very decent and the view on NY harbor and yachts is fantastic. Hostess is nice and accommodating. Menu is not big, but most of the food items are good. All we had that night -- halibut, iron steak, tuna carpaccio were well and tastefully made. This used to be my favorite place in the area for cocktails, but not anymore -- they seem to have decided that alcohol is an optional ingredient in a cocktail. I recommend to order beer or wine. Waiters while ask repeatedly 'how you like it', don't try too hard. I asked to clean my sticky table, but "nice" waiter just ignored it. Another thing -- it was my gf's birthday and he brought a couple of biscotti cookies as "complements of the chef". I had to force myself to leave this guy a tip. It'd be much better to forget about it altogether than to drag a couple of cookies from walmart box and present it as some miracle of chef wizardry. This place could have been really awesome but as it is it is just OK.

Except for the noise level, it was terrific. Of course, we had clear weather and good timing for the view; therefore, I honestly do not know if the experience would be as good if the weather were bad! The food was indeed very good as was the service.
Seating could use more space between tables and again, less noise.

Went there with my wife and mother for lunch. It was a terrific experience the food was very good the view Of New York is absolutely beautiful. Very accommodating and friendly staff.looking forward to going back there with my wife for a romantic dinner.

Took a prospective business colleague to Batello for Dinner. We opted for dining outside which was great. The outdoor dining space is covered yet open and right out at the end of the pier so it gives you a great view of the New York skyline across the river. The wine list is a bit short but they do have a nice list of available beers as well. We both had the lobster risotto which was phenomenal. We almost bypassed dessert, but in the end I'm glad we didn't. It was equally amazing. Service throughout was terrific. The restaurant overall is very popular with local business folks, especially on a Thursday night. So if you're planning an dinner I'd recommend reservations. Be ready for an energetic scene as well, it definitely gets busy and is not quiet.

nice location in jersey city on the water. The views of NYC were beautiful. The food was good, we had the crab cake and wedge salad to start. both were really tasty. For entree's we had the lobster risotto which was really great! The portion was actually more than i thought i would get so that was nice. My husband had the gnocchi pasta and that was delicious as well. I had the pineapple cocktail they offer which was great. My husband had the one with basil and that was also great! He ordered a glass of red wine which took a while to come out but our server apologized and gave us a glass on the house, which was really nice of them. For dessert we had the chocolate souffle type dessert which was also very delicious. I would definitely go back for a special occasion it is a bit pricey but it was a nice night out.

I remember this restaurant before the new owners took over and made it Battello...which I am very glad they did. It has a very wanderlust ambience from the décor and marina location. I would go for the location and décor alone as it makes a great conversation setting. The food is average for the type of genre; nothing I would come back just to have again. It's great for a business dinner, date night, catching up with friends and post work happy hour with your coworkers....and especially if you just want to stop by for wine and dessert. My service here was subpar on multiple occasions....staff rarely stop by to check on your table.....and you wait forever for every request which I would not recommend if you plan on spending your lunch hour here. Overall, I would still recommend this as the pros definitely outweigh the cons. So, grab a pal or loved one, reserve a table and create some memories!
