love love love this place. waiters are top notch, service is great. brought many people here who were new to City Island and they have made it their go to place as well. I get the hot appetizer for 2 as a main course, you couldn't possible eat it all. Pricey, but it is a treat, not a daily event.

We ate outdoors because inside was kind of stuffy. The food is ok but way overpriced. We did not even eat lobster because that would have been over $60.00 a plate. They fill you up on bread so that they serve limited amount of actually fish. No salad was offered with the plate. There are no refills on the soda... More

My first time on the island and won't be my last. The Harbor is a very large establishment and appears to be part of a chain with other locations in Westchester. The seafood is fresh well prepaired and the portions are huge. I had scallops they were out of this world, others in the party had fresh fish or lobsters... More

I've had a birthday dinner here as well as a buffet lunch celebration years ago during my hight school senior year. This place is great for a romantic dinner as well. You can capture a great sunset with a waterfront view, while you enjoy your meal. It's a very chill environment with great staff. Meal was delicious (loved the grilled... More

It is spacious with a high ceiling, excellent views of the water, good service, and excellent seafood. I typically order lobster (and I know something about lobster) and have had... More

Nostalgic and with wonderful unobstructed views of the water. A little pricey, but you get alot of food for your money. We had fried calamari as an appetizer. They were very good, crispy and tender. After having the salad and the wonderful crusty bread, I could not eat my entree and ended up taking it home with me. The waiters... More

ordered marinara linguine seafood dinner for 2 people, it was big enough for 6 people. but it was too salty for my taste. the server was clearly forcing himself to make any comments, i would've preferred to be served by the bus boys. the desert was really good though. i've had better pasta meal at pasta lovers.
