I am totally disappointed and shocked. Together with my husband we came to the Boathouse yesterday to enjoy Brunch. Unfortunatelly, after "enjoying" your Brunch - I could no longer enjoy the afternoon, neither the evening, nor the night. Obviously I caught a food poisoning and am still deeply suffering from it. I had the Omelette with vegetables. As I am... More

We had a late lunch here today and found it's a little oasis in the middle of a bustling city. We had the morning at the Met museum and walked over to the restaurant which took about 10 minutes. The service and food were excellent. I booked and got a window seat and it was stunning to look at the... More

We spent our last morning in NY in Central Park. Our guide on a previous tour had recommended this place for brunch. Great advice. Great food, interesting menu & very obliging friendly staff

Two families in New York for Christmas thought lets do this iconic Location for a special Christmas Day experience after a couple of months of trying to book and being told bookings weren't being taken yet we finally managed to get a 2.30 slot, not perfect with 5 children in our group but had a late breakfast so we thought...

I booked lunch at the boathouse for Christmas day 3 months in advance. I was told there would be a 3 course menu for 84 USD a head. I thought that was pricey but reasonable given the location and the day it was on.. I was really excited that it would be a special lunch for me and my partner.... More

We thought it might be a bit of a tourist place so the expectations for the quality of the lunch were not that high. But actually lunch was very good. the recommended sea bass was perfect. Good chardonnay by the glass. Very friendly service at the table. The "reception' is a bit different, they give you a bad table, which... More

Celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at the Boathouse and they made it a very special day for us. I was able to book a table and flowers for the table (to the surprise of my wife ) which were good value and surprisingly enhanced the celebration because it attracted open interest from other diners. I had asked for an outside table... More

I visited this restaurant twice during september; one, on a Sunday (at brunch you can´t make reservations) and then, on a wednesday and overall, it was a experience to remember for an outsider of Central Park and NYC. Usually, unless you have booked a table you will have to wait at least half an hour to be accommodated. After that,... More

TV screens can not capture the beauty and peaceful feeling of this place. The city scape views are beautiful from nearby, the flora is captivating. I love this place!

Central Park is my favorite place in the city and a large part of that has to do with my experience rowing on the lake! It's so beautiful being out on the water and taking in the sights. It was a great blend of an "action" date and a "romantic" date. Just a warning that the oars can be a... More
