Great place in the heart of JC, NJ! The menu was delightful and the food was delicious. A quiet patio on a warm Spring evening was a perfect option to sitting in the pub interior. Will go there again!

The drinks , service and atmosphere are perfect but the food ? Lacked flavor - after reading the raving reviews for the burger i gave it a try and was underwhelmed.

I'd heard only good things about The Hutton from neighbors so when a brunch opportunity came around I grabbed a table for 6 and headed over.

The brunch selection was varied and the drinks were tasty. Some of the food was a little cold, but eating with kids I can't remember my last hot meal anyway. The place was very crowded, but the noise level was reasonable. The Hutton is small and because of the lack of restaurants in the neighborhood, is usually busy - make a reservation! The service wasn't super speedy, but not unreasonably slow for prime brunch time. Will check it out for dinner someday soon.

Best dinner I've had in a long while. Contemporary and diverse menu. Appetizers and dinner were delicious. Service was quick and polite on a busy friday evening. Small space so was a bit loud but food made up for it. Will definitely come again.

The Hutton is around the corner from me and the drinks are reasonably priced but I find that the price of the food is weirdly nonproportional to the drinks. That said, the food is really is amazing. I always enjoy it! The Hutton is best in the summer when you can eat outside in the courtyard.

Love this spot, it's become my home bar/restaurant after a move from queens to JC. Management and staff are awesome, personable and on point with their skills. The space is well designed yet low key. A great spot to bring out of town guests, a glass of wine with a girly or even great to dine alone. Food is good for plant based, a couple vegan options and specials every week especially for those who eat meat. I'll be back soon.

Loved the outdoor setting at The Hutton. They did a great job of creating a courtyard dining experience in the middle of a neighborhood that is not that attractive. The inside of the restaurant looked very dark and needs to be updated. But since we ate outside, it didn't matter to us.

The food was EXCELLENT! Loved both our appetizers and entrees.

We have visited the Hutton upwards of 20 times in the last year- it has replaced our previous favorite places to dine by a wide margin. The menu is comfort food and eclectic all at the same time. Because even the Hutton Burger will taste like no other burger you have ever had. The Seafood, Pasta dishes and appetizers are all unique and different. All is done on premises. Top bites : Apple Guacamole, Smashed Avocado salad, Hutton Burger, Barbeque Chicken, Pasta is made daily so each day highlights a different pasta in a Chicken Bolognese sauce. The daily specials are simply amazing. And if you are still hungry - try and walk away from their dessert menu is sinful. As for service you have never felt more welcome in a place than manager - Robert and server par excellence Jennie (our personal favorite!) Please try it you won't be disappointed. It is a welcome and needed addition to the Jersey City Heights neighborhood.

We have come back time after time always on a Sunday for brunch and a little Trad Session. We've never had a problem with parking or finding the perfect table. We will be trying it on a Friday or Saturday night soon!

Hutton is a new neighborhood classic. Located on a quiet residential street, where parking is at a premium, it encourages you to take an Uber and have a couple extra great seasonal drafts.
I took my dad here for Father's Day dinner and they managed to impress him with the quality of T-Bone steak that might be a first in 30 odd years of trying to impress him :-)

The staff went above and beyond. Everyone had a good attitude even though especially busy day. The food both in taste and presentation was outstanding — definitely taking their own spin for some the dishes making for surprisingly delicious twists. It was all around excellent. We went for brunch but will certainly be back for dinner. The space is cozy and they’ve done a lot to make it inviting.

I had met up with a long time friend of mine at The Hutton for dinner. I've been wanting to try the restaurant out in Jersey City for awhile but I did not get the chance. We started with the Apple Guacamole (which was fantastic and has a vegan option upon request) and then followed by me ordering The Hutton Burger and her the Sweet Potato Tamale which also is a vegan dish. Both entrees were delicious. One more aspect that I truly appreciated was the good selection on the beer and cocktail menu. I had a pint of Guinness and it was quite possibility the best pint I had ever had, I will definitely recommend The Hutton to all my friends.

Can't wait to check out the brunch menu and the outdoor seating area once the weather heats up.
