I ended up at The Kitchen Step with a couple friends on a Friday night when our prior dinner plans fell through. It was a bit late for dinner, around 0830-0900 so my friend was able to book a table for 3 online pretty easily. Like any other place in Jersey City, finding parking is hit or miss and unfortunately that night was a miss for us. We parked about a 5 minute walk away from the restaurant. Since we had a reservation we were seated immediately. The staff was very friendly throughout the night. The 3 of us started off with drinks and I enjoyed mine very much. From what I could tell my dining companions liked their drinks as well. So far so good. I ordered the Kale Caesar Salad as a "small plate" and the Ricotta Gnocchi as a "large plate". They were out of kale that night so my salad came with mixed greens rather than kale; no problem. I enjoyed the salad. It was light and refreshing. Nothing mind-blowing but definitely solid. A good pretty good start to my meal. I was looking forward to the ricotta gnocchi and when it came out it looked pretty good too. It came with wild mushrooms, paprika butter, and carrot top pesto. It was...alright. I guess I was expecting a more pesto-y flavor but I was a little disappointed to be honest. It was a perfectly fine dish and the gnocchi had a nice chew to it. I just wasn't the biggest fan of the sauce. Now on to my main gripe, price. The cocktail prices seemed pretty par for the course at $16. My salad was $15 and while I enjoyed it, it did not feel worth $15 to me. The gnocchi dish was $26 and it's not like they give crazy large portions either. I didn't leave hungry, but I also ordered 2 dishes. To me it seems like every food dish is $5-10 more than I'd expect to pay for them. Also, there's a 2.99% convenience fee on top of your bill if you're paying by credit card (who isn't these days?). That rubbed me the wrong way. I didn't hate my experience here, but I'd have some qualms about coming back.

I'm going to give them 4 stars because the staff was super nice and patient enough to accommodate us when we were too indecisive, granted it was raining in and off.  The apple French toast was amazing, my avo toast was great too.  Great spot for brunch with friends.  I loved the coffee too, no complaints here.  Parking may be a bit inconvenient, it's in a very busy area.
