Be careful here. The service is okay but the staff is completely overwhelmed b/c the co-owners have this annoying habit of screaming at their employees and firing them for trying to track down food that was ordered ages ago. Maybe if the managers spent a little less time drinking wine while manning the front and a little more time expediting orders and helping the overwhelmed servers deal w/ patrons tired of waiting an hour for their food they wouldn't have to scream at the servers who do go looking for the "missing food" and fire them in the middle of their shift. Horrible place to go on so many levels. Normally I give a free pass on so so service but when managers flip out for no reason and seem to be the source of all the problems at an establishment, I put it on my "never go to again" list.

We went to a my friend's 40th celebration party here. This is a very good American cuisine restaurant. We had a wonderful time in their private room on their second floor, where we dined. It has a very quaint and comfortable atmosphere. Plus, I heard they have a third floor, which has a rooftop bar with outdoor seating!

My friend, who lives in Hoboken, dines here frequently and said it's one of her favorite restaurants in town and is kid friendly with a children's menu. She told me that the entrees are reasonable priced from $9-$28. They also offer a prix-fixe dinner Monday threw Thursdays from 5-7 for only $10 p/p!

I suggest if your in the area to check it out!

In the 2 years since I've lived in Hoboken I've visited City Bistro numerous times. I was always a fan of their rooftop bar especially in the summer. However, now I will definitely never go back and I want to warn everyone who is a patron there to BE CAREFUL! I was there for dinner with a friend a few weeks ago and when I noticed the deduction from my bank account it appeared there was a discrepancy. Although the manager was kind enough to dig up a copy of the receipt for me, I was quite disturbed at what i discovered. The server had added his own much bigger tip (about 33%, up from the standard 20% which I left) and FORGED MY SIGNATURE!!!! Theft and Fraud are 2 things I do not recommend at a restaurant. And although the management did refund the total tip, they informed me that they would NOT be letting the server go as he has been with them for quite some time. And when I mentioned in that case I would have to warn people about the particular server (not the restaurant as it was not entirely their fault) he then become quite short and walked away from me. He is lucky I didn't call the police, after having written proof of what he did!! So everyone if you go there....keep your receipts and watch out for Jeff!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: Rooftop bar, nice atmosphere

Cons: SERVER STOLE FROM ME

Overpriced, poor service with mediocre food at best. You're better off with a number of other restaurant/bar on Washington instead.

The service was poor and the foold took forever to come out and there were many preparation mistakes. Way overpriced for the qualifity. Try to avoid unless it's on someone else's pocket.

The entire experience at the City Bistro can be summed up as hit or miss - black and white. You could have an amazing time on the rooftop sipping on drinks or get blocked from even going upstairs. The crowd could be nice and calm with a mix of men and women or a frat party. And the food - it can either be a delight or overpriced copy from down the street. The most disappointing thing is the lack of knowledge into frequent customers...

Pros: roof deck, crowd (sometimes), location

Cons: consistency, attitude
