Great view.

The location and view are great, right at the tip of Manhattan. The prices for alcoholic beverages are steep. The sangria we ordered was $45, but well worth it as we got a supersize pitcher of a good tasting wine with plenty of fresh seasonal fruit. The pizza was about 14" and was crisp... read more

There is not much choice in the area for a restaurant. We stopped and were not disappointed in the food or ambiance as the breeze coming off the water was lovely. The waiter was curt and not accommodating but we tried to ignore the service and not let it spoil the experience. I would not make a special trip to... More

We did not plan on going here but were in the area. Great service and surprisingly good food for an obvious tourist trap. Pricing is based on location. Food is worth it drinks are not.

This is a great way to see Manhattan from the water side and get some lovely views. You are not surrounded by people audit is a peaceful way to escape the crowds.

Yesterday was out with my daughter, we stopped by for lunch. There was a family of 5 ahead of us. As I approached the hostess, she told me that the kitchen was closed and they are no longer serving lunch. I had asked her of the family of five that was seated several seconds earlier but she had no response... More

Recently had the wonderful experience of attending a wedding at this location. It was truly an amazing event. This venue is absolutely gorgeous with the beautiful view. Atmosphere was amazing. The food is outstanding from start to finish. The bar was fantastic with everything one could possibly want. I would say to anyone lucky enough to have an event there-you... More

if you have been in New York for a few days you will realise that any restaurant that serves reasonable lay nice food is pricey. Here you can get lovely food, awesome views especially at sunset and at a fair price. I would definitely go again.

Whether summer or winter enjoy the views and great service. Good choice on the menu and wines. Love to sit at the bar outside in summer to people watch and you can't beat the views.

Stopped here with a coworker to grab a beer after work since it was so nice out. We were in the city for business so we stopped here for some sights and beers. Beers weren't terribly prices and bartenders were good. Nothing spectacular and can get pretty touristy but a solid option for an outdoor drink on the water.

Stopped by for a drink and had a great day with a sun, clear sky and not too much people so it was very nice. It's not cheap but we didn't expect that either so we were satisfied with everything we got.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
