Restaurant Review

Located on a quiet street in the Paulus Hook residential neighborhood of Jersey City, the Satis Bistro is a great place to go for a date, or to celebrate a romantic occasion, or to catch up with a group of friends for an enjoyable dining experience.


Co-owners Michael Garcia and Geza Gulas, and Chef Michael Fioranti have teamed up to make this Jersey City neighborhood gem a go to place for creative European food in an attractive setting.


The ambiance of this bistro style place is romantic, intimate with a chic rustic European feel to it. The interior decor has exposed brick, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and large windows, rustic wooden tables, with soft lighting, and large pillows for the bench seating along the walls adorned with historical pictures and an attractive marble-top bar.


The Salumeria (Italian style deli) with imported meats and cheeses in the back completes the picture of the European style bistro.


Chef Michael Fioranti is adept at preparing a seasonally changing menu with creative and tasty dishes. The Branzino, prepared and served European style as a whole fish with the head and tail in tact, is an example of the flair the bistro offers.


In addition to the entrees they also have a large selection of sandwiches made with high-end ingredients fresh out of the Salumeria where such exotic specialties as Spanish cured ham, dry-cured smoke ham, and Tuscan-style cured meats can be had .


Forget to bring your favorite bottle of wine? There is a liquor nearby on the same block.


The Satis Bistro is not Recommended for kids.

Open Tuesday through Friday - 5:30 pm - 10 pm and Saturday and Sunday - 11 am - 10 pm.

In the warmer months there is outside patio dining on the rustic wood and iron tables.


Street parking is available in addition to a public parking garage in the Liberty Towers, at the corner of Morris and Greene, one block from the restaurant.
