I went with my boyfriend last week for our anniversary, I've heard many great things so we decided to check it out. The decorations were absolutely beautiful , and the fish tank was amazing !
The food was delisious and not over priced , they have specials on different days . We happened to go on a Thursday and it was half off the entire menu and drinks all day !
The servers were really nice , recommended really great dinners. Over all I loved it . The reson I went was from word of mouth and I just wanted to make sure I keep passing it on !
Stumbled upon teak when me and my boyfriend got off the path. We just wanted to come have some dinner and drinks in Hoboken since the weather was so nice.
The hostesses were very friendly and gave us a great table. The server was so nice and answered all of our questions, and even gave recommendations (which were fantastic).
My boyfriend and I split the lobster roll for an appetizer and then I had the salmon and he had the filet mignon Wellington. It was so delicious!!
Also! The decor was gorgeous! My favorite is the chandeliers, but I love the color scheme as well. Just a really great vibe, I can't wait to go back!!
Went recently with my boyfriend for lunch. We sat outside and it was beautiful! The service was great and the staff was wonderful. Everyone was polite and they do their best to accommodate everyones needs. I am definitely going back.
I would recommend for you to go and try it out. It wasn't pricey and the food was great!
Came here for dinner with a few girlfriends, we split the teak balls, and ahi tuna and then we each had a few rolls. My favorite was the pink leopard! We also had a few martinis, the lychee martini was fantastic! I also tried a bikini martini! Yum!
The service was great. Very attentive but not overwhelming. We sat outside because the weather was just so beautiful!
This is definitely our new favorite spot this summer!

I have a lot of experience behind the scenes at this establishment. Not only are the managers INCOMPOTENT but they couldnt give two craps about you. The goal here is to get everyone in and OUT as fast as possible to make money. These people are people pleasers. If you go to the manager with a problem, he will talk his way around the subject until you go away. Money hungry is an understatement, if you dont believe me, take a look at the overpriced menu. 20 dollars for an 8 piece sushi roll? get real. I have been there many friday and saturday nights. Brainless juiced up losers with too much hair gel and fat girls in dresses two sizes too small. The promoters think they are Gods gift to mankind, and the waiters are washed up psychology majors from NJCU. I could go on all day. Bottom line, if you have money to waste, or you like being treated as if you were on an assembly line, by all means take a trip down to Teak.

I Usually NEVER write reviews. I am a promoter for many establishments in New Jersey and I can tell you I've been around. I try to stay away from Hoboken because its a wannabe Manhattan, however, I decided to go one night and take some guests from out of the country. I decided Teak because it has a a pretty good ambiance. However, that night the gentleman at the door decided that he was employed for the Immigration Office. My guest was over 21, nevertheless, he went and looked at the visa. The visa had expired a month earlier but the guest was still here legally with a change of status pending. I find it absurd and discriminatory that a brainless bouncer would act as an immigration officer and not let someone in based on their visa. It is not your job to check the immigration status, not even cops care about that. You should worry whether that person is over 21 or not. I am appalled at the level of professionalism and will never bring my business here again.

Went here with some girlfriends for Saturday dinner before we went upstairs to check out the nightclub. Great atmosphere, beautiful decor. Food is good- I feel like Teak is most known for their sushi but they have something for everyone. Everyone was more than satisfied with their dinners and drinks were dangerously good! Staff is young and friendly. Energy is amazing for a night out! Music was bumping. Definitely a good spot to hit up with friends, will be back soon!!!

Came here for dinner with a large group for the customer appreciation 1/2 price night. Everything was great! We ordered some sushi (which was delicious!) for appetizers and then ordered a couple of steaks and the sea bass for dinner. Food and service was great! After dinner we went upstairs to the lounge to continue drinking where they have flat screen tv's to watch sports and even a projection screen. Can't wait to go back!

I work nearby and always tag a long with my coworkers friday (this past weekend was my 4th time) If it wasnt for her knowing one of the cocktail waitresses, i would never, ever be seen here on a friday. it is the ugliest crowd & the worst DJ. thank god for a talkative bartender to keep me company!!
its such a disgrace because the music on saturdays is definitely a good vibe, i dont know what theyre thinking with fridays.. id rather be overcrowded at 1republik than have to listen to that press play ipod DJ!!

I had a great experience at Teak, but I feel duped. I took advantage of the customer appreciation day tonight, which has the menu 50% off. The food was great, and I had dinner with my mother. She offered to pay the bill as long as I got the tip. She paid $80 and I left a $20 tip. On the way home, I found it odd that the bill was $80 at 50% off. I checked it and realized that the gratuity was included. Not only that, but the gratuity was added BEFORE the 50% was deducted. So not only did we pay a $21 gratuity on a $59 bill, but we double tipped! And we sat there 10 mins after we paid and got no word from the server about the mistake! So be careful...the food is great but that customer appreciation is a little tricky and Im not sure I will go back after that experience...
Teak, not doubt is one of the best place to dine and hang out in Hoboken. They have a nice variety of Asian fusion on the menu and the prices are just right, Not to mention they have half off the menu on Mondays and Thursdays. Can't go wrong with that. The place itself is one of the most beautiful restaurants/lounges in the metro area. You can tell a lot of thought with into the design and construction of the place. Nice drink menu too. Two drawbacks are the crowd and music For some reason when the place turns into a club on Fri and Sat nights it draws a not so attractive crowd. Plus the music is a little to ghetto for my taste and way too loud. A nice variety would be nice, and themed nights as well. But overall one of the best Hoboken has to offer.
I WENNT TO TEAK THE OTHER DAY FOR DINNER BECAUSE A FRIEND GOT US A GIFT CARD THERE.
ME AND MY WIFE HAD THE BEST TIME EVER.
WE HAD A BOTTLE OF WINE , SHE HAD THE SEABRSS AND I HAD THE SHIRT STEAK. AND FOR AN APP WE HAD THE ROCK SHRIMP... THE FOOD WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD, THE SERVER WAS VERY HELPFULL TO MY WIFES NEEDS..
FOR DESSERT WE HAD THE LAVA CAKE , AMAZING BEST TIME AFTER DINNER WE DECIDED TO HAVE A COUPLE DRINKS AT THE BAR SO WE WENT UPSTAIRS AND NOTICED A DIFFERENT ATMOSHERE . LIVE DJ, PEOPLE DANCING AND HAVING A BLAST .
I THANK MY FRIEND FOR SENDING ME TO THIS PLACE BECAUSE I WILL BE BACK.. NOT ONCES BUT ALOT MORE TIMES AND AM GOING TO TELL ALL MY FRIENDS AS WELL, IF THEY DONT KNW ABNOUT IT ALREADY...

I dont understand why People dislike teak so much. It's an awesome environment first of all. The food couldn't be any better and our server was very formal. Like all restaurants there are those waiters who just don't give any kind of personality in there job, but luckily Holman took care of us. I set up a reservation for 8 on thursday night (half off everything) we got there and our table was ready no problem. They're salads are AMAZING i HIGHLY recommend you try one. I can't complain, our trip to teaks was fun and exciting and i'll definitely be going back.

This is a horrible restaurant. I have been to many five star trendy upscale restaurants in my life and this is no where close to any other them. They are pretentious for absolutely no reason at all. This place is filled with rude, ill-trained, ill-mannered employees. It seems to be no policy set-up for rules because the staff gives inconsistent answers. I had a birthday dinner there on Dec 12 and it was ruined. for the following reasons:
1) The hostess who took my reservation over the phone mixed up the day and instead of Saturday she marked it for Tuesday, Dec 15. Luckily, I called back to ask questions about increasing the size of the party, policy on bringing in a birthday cake from the outside, and cake cutting fees. This is when I was told that there was no reservation for me on Dec 12 and that I couldn't get my original timeslot because they were other large parties. They moved me to 8:30pm on Dec 12 and she told me there was a $3 cake cutting fee period.
2)Later at the restaurant I was told that it would be $3/slice. I was shocked that I would have to pay $60 for them to cut a cake I already bought. I was told that 50% of my party had to be present before we would be seated and when 50% was present they changed it to 80%. We were getting ready to leave and suddenly the table was ready. Go figure!!
3) The lounge seat at the table was soaking wet with alcohol and my friend sat in it. We had to find someone to clean up the area and it took a long time. We had to stand in the meantime.
4) The drink orders were forgotten or mixed up. The excuse they gave was that they were busy with other large parties. Again, they made us feel like our party didn't matter too much to them. Btw, the lychee martini is awful...drinks period are horrible.
5) Food took forever to come out and was just ok. They ran out of sushi so three of my friends had to wait longer. How does a sushi restaurant run out of their main product?!!!!
6) All through dinner they kept rushing us to finish and clearing the table too fast. They brought the check out before my birthday cake so part of my party left and never got to completely celebrate with me. A busboy came to clear the area and I kept telling him that I had a cake coming and we needed the area and he just ignored me as if I were nothing and he continued to clear. He turned to me and said ""I""m trying to do my job and you keep rrrrr to me"" . Very rude behavior.
7) They brought the cake and still made us leave the area. They put my cake around a statue of buddha and left it unattended. My friend had to stand and make sure no one took any. The manager moved us to another area with chairs but we couldn't enjoy the cake because we couldn't properly celebrate because we were separated.
8) The manager promised us shots for inconviencing us but they never came. We had to look for him to get them and then they weren't that great.
Basically, the entire experience was awful. The staff is rude and lack proper customer service training. The managers aren't that much better. The food and drinks are overpriced for the quality. The lounge chairs are dirty and stained. If you like to be treated badly while spending lots of money, then eat here. Otherwise, don't waste your time.

During a recent happy hour the bar tender informed me that on Thursday nights martinis and entrees are half price. So I invited my g/f and made the reservation. When the martini arrived I looked at it and said to the waitress “this is not a martini it’s a shooter!!”. Honestly the smallest martini glass I have ever seen. She informed me that because they are half price they are half the size! What kind of bargain is that?
Then we ordered our meal. The appetizer was lettuce wraps with chicken. The lettuce was turning brown and wilted and the stuffing must have been cooked and sitting on the stove for days. Totally inedible. After we ate about 20% of it the waitress came to take it away. I pointed out how bad it looked and tasted. Her reply was “sorry”. My g/f said based on that, she was glad she didn’t order sushi. The lettuce wraps at Houllian’s are much better and cost less.
The entrée of halibut was actually pretty good. Fresh and well prepared, but by that time I had decided it would be my last visit to Teak.
I was surprised when the check came that they didn’t remove the terrible appetizer from the bill. Do yourself a favor and pick one of the good restaurants in Hoboken.

Never go there on a Friday night. The music is TOO loud and the restaurant seating is quite cramped. I went there with three guests and we were sandwiched next to overbooked tables with little or no elbow room. The music from the upstairs lounge was blairing all night and the lighting was poor. It is certainly not worth the menu prices, which would make you think you are in a classy five-star establishment.
Although the decor and interior design was stunning, we waited over an hour for our food. The steak was bland and rough and tasted like it was not seasoned but just thrown in the microwave. The wine selection was mediocre.
I do NOT recommend this place for dining out.
