  • Eli at the bar makes a fantastic everything. Garlic shrimp, great. Mussels, fantastic. Octopus salad, good! Crispy pork ribs, amazing! Raw bar is superb.
  • Fries and chili mayo!
  • Do brunch here; order a Bloody Mary or two. Best Bloody Mary in the JC!
  • 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!
  • Best beer & wine selection in downtown Jersey City! Enjoy the incredible atmosphere.
  • Smoked salmon and pancakes were great. Not enough fruits on pancakes. Burgers were really sad. Don't order burgers. They were tasteless.
  • Try some of the signature cocktails... Some unique concoctions.
  • The Calamari withe the Spicy Yellow Tomato Ragout is outrageous. Do yourself a favor and. Order a double because everyone will be eating yours
  • Pretty great brunch and the place has a great feel and decor. Service was excellent. Thumbs up to the Light Horse worth a Sunday in Jersey City.
  • The French toast is killer. You can order anything and won't be disappointed though.
  • The Benedicts are delicious and try the side of potato and onions.
  • 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!!!
  • The beer list is fairly extensive. Nice rotation on both draught and bottle. You will find something to compliment your meal.
  • Feel like you should get some bread or something before your meal. :(
  • One of my favorite places in the NYC area. Great food. Love the Blue Cheese Burger or the Smoked Salmon Benedict.
  • Always double check your reservations ....always
  • Service is slow. Food is hit or miss. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad, it's bad.
  • Don't forget to order one of the homemade sodas. The lemon ginger soda is amazing.
  • The grilled octopus salad is amazing
  • Incredible mussels and lobster carbonara.
