    Mediterranean Grill & Pizza: Pizza and Mediterranean Takeout

    by tayloretc Updated Apr 4, 2011

    It looks like a regular pizza place, but the menu includes humus, stuffed grapeleaves, baked pasta dishes, and a variety of kebabs besides really good pizza. Plenty of vegetarian options. It's open very late, too - Thursday-Saturday until 4am.

    Leo's Grandevous: Great Italian Food

    by nicolettart Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You come here for the food and the atmosphere--you're haunted by Frank SInatra music and pics---I love it. Good Italian food, reasonably priced, pasta dishes less than $10. Check out the menu on-line, especially the list of bar pies. When my friends from Japan are in town, we head straight for this place!

    Favorite Dish: Spinach Ravioli Alfredo

    Bangkok City: Great Thai Food

    by darylrose Written May 11, 2008

    They said this is the best Thai restaurant in Hoboken and I must say that it has to be. The interiors are relaxing and the food is really, really great! Must pick-up the Pad Thai and Tom Yum Goong if you drop by.

    Precious: Nothing Precious about it.

    by seamandrew Written Jan 27, 2008

    This is one of Hoboken's many Asian "fusion" restaurants that combine Chinese, Japanes, and Thai cuisines and unfortunately do not specialize in any. As such, the food is adequate. It is a popular take out place, but the restaurant is usually rather empty. I have eaten from Precious and the food again is adequate. It is not one of my favorite places in Hoboken and I recommend you dine elsewhere unless you cannot find space at one of the many restaurants offering better cuisine. The two things that can be said for them is that they are quick at delivering food and they are quite amenable to special requests.

    Favorite Dish: Nothing in particular.

    Karma Kafe: Wonderfully Indian on Washington

    by seamandrew Written Jan 27, 2008

    Personally, one of my favorite Indian Restaurants in Hoboken. There food is absolutely delicious and my many experiences have been grand. My wife finds there food a bit greasy, but I firmly disagree. I think it makes the food tastier. Unfortuantely, the restaurant is very small so wait times can be quite long. Service is acceptable and the decor is equally adequate. In the warmer months, the sidewalk seating transforms this little restaurant into a true cafe.

    Favorite Dish: Too many to list here. But I suppose the the Chicken Madras and Chicken Tikka Masala are two of my favorites.

    Sushi House (downtown location): Great Sushi, Terrible Service

    by ctorres1979 Written Jan 13, 2008

    Just came back from a dinner at sushi house. Would recommend it for take out maybe, not sure if even that would be ok because that would require still some amount of customer service. Anyway the quality of what they are serving is excellent but the service that we experienced was some of the worst ever!

    Most of the time our server was sitting at the bar! That just kind of sums it up.

    Favorite Dish: Special roll called lady in red

  • Leo's Grandevous: I wish this place had been better

    by Hobokhabitant Updated Jul 1, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nothing particularly special about this restaurant. Service was slow. And I have two words for the mexican cooks in this Italian restaurant: al dente. The owner realized the food was slow in coming and offered a free glass of wine, which (of course) wound up on the bill. Next time, if there is a next time, we will settle in with a Gibson surrounded by the shrine of Sinatra photos at the bar and eat dinner elsewhere.

    Mi dispiace, amici. Parlo la verità.

    Favorite Dish: A six-layered concoction of smoky mozzarella with charred red peppers and beefstake tomato slices crisscrossed with syrupy thick balsamic vinegar goes down perfectly with Leo's crusty bread. A good accompaniment to a round of drinks at the bar.

    Leo's Grandevous: Italian hole in the wall greatness.

    by cjg1 Written Apr 20, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a simple little place in western Hoboken. The old red and white checker type table plastics. etc.
    Just the kind of place you'd expect little and be happy with more.
    The first visit was by far best. Went back just the two of us and it was not nearly as good. Probably just a bad day.

    Favorite Dish: The lobster ravioli.

    Cal's Hotdogs: Who knew a hotdog stand could be so good?

    by tayloretc Updated Dec 4, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cal's on the corner

    Cal and his son have been selling hotdogs from a trailer on the same corner for 50 years. Slathered with sauerkraut, chili, and everything else available. I've watched people stop their car in this difficult spot (no parking, lots of traffic, little visibility) just to grab a couple, so they must be good.

    Little Market: Great sandwiches

    by tayloretc Written Nov 22, 2005

    It's a convenience store, but the sandwiches and soup are fantastic, the fruit and vegetables are several steps up from convenience, and the provisions on the shelves are the good stuff. It's a tiny place, but people are willing to wait jammed into the corners for freshly-made wraps and paninis. The guys behind the counter are nice, too.

    Texas Arizona: Happy Hour People Watching Bar

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Sep 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you sit outside, this is a great place to sit and watch people at happy hour. In general the food isn't great, but between 5 and 7 some of the drinks are half price and you can get a pretty good rasmopolitan for full price. You can entertain yourself for two hours watching the steady stream of yuppies coming up out of the subway.

    Favorite Dish: Great french fries and dipping sauce. Almost worth a trip back just to eat them again. Very satisfied with them, but the pulled pork sandwich wasn't very good. The rasmo was pretty tasty.

    The Bagel Smashery: A great breakfast place.

    by seamandrew Written Aug 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bagel Smashery in Hoboken.

    Open for both breakfast and lunch, the Bagel Smashery is one of the best places in Hoboken to get bagels. The reason this place gets it's name is because of it's patented bagel smasher which will smash and toast any bagel sandwich you make. The result is a much thinner bagel that is absolutely delicious. I prefer this place for breakfast or brunch.

    Unfortunately, this restaurant is very small and there is practically not seating (certainly no tables) within. So if you go, expect to take it to go. The Bagel Smashery originally opened up in Hoboken, but I first learned of it when they opened up across the street from my High School in North Bergen, NJ. Since then, the North Bergen location is gone and only the Hoboken location is open.

    Favorite Dish: So far my favorite is a smashed whole wheat bagel with virginia ham & mozzarella cheese. Yummy!

    Sushi House of Hoboken: Fabulous Sushi in Hoboken

    by seamandrew Updated Aug 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Sushi House of Hoboken

    If there's one thing Hoboken is not short of, it is Sushi Restaurants. There are at least 5 if not more. I have not tried them all, but I've been to 4 of them and of the 4 I've tried, the Sushi House of Hoboken is the best. Unlike most of the restaurants they're off of the main street (Washington Street) on First Street. This place is always full and you should call ahead for a reservation (even during the week). You can also choose to do take out and they deliver the same great quality. The ambience inside the restaurant is very cool and inviting. It can get noisy in there, but you can still here yourself and your dinner guests. They have specials on certain days so be sure to ask!

    Favorite Dish: My two favorite items from their menu are the Fantasy roll and one of the signature rolls which is called Lady in Red. Both are amazingly good. Fantasy is Tuna, Salmon, Yellowtail & mango and the Lady in Red is Crab, tempura flakes, spicy sauce wrapped in tune and red tobiko. Yum Yum!
