If you are planning on sailing the Clipper City vessel for water views of New York on the Hudson this restaurant is located right on the board walk next to where the boat docks! A great location for watching sunsets and viewing Lady Liberty! The food is pricey for dining outside on wired mesh patio furniture but if you go... More

Having lunch overlooking the Statue of Liberty was awesome. Service good, food delicious, the duck foie gras with pickled blueberries was amazing. Would highly recommend, also a walk round Battery Park, there was so much going on and all free.

We stopped here for lunch and to relax and talk over a few beers after we toured the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. While the food menu is limited the experience was great!

I expected this to be a tourist trap but was pleasantly surprised. The food was good, the view over the Hudson is beautiful, and the service was attentive. It's a little overpriced for what you get, but if you're in the area for the 9/11 Memorial or to see the Statute of Liberty, this is a really solid spot to... More

We sat here for quite a while just chatting and passing the time , a nice little spot. The views of the skyscraper just peeping above the trees was awesome . The... More

The place was nicely decorated inside & out. The waiter was nice. It was all you would expect when eating along the waterfront in NYC. Had the Salmon with salad & the fish was very nice. They were pretty tolerant of my two children but I think if I ever went again, I wouldn't bring them. Good place to eat... More

The location of this place says it all. The garden with a view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is the "must" place to sit on a warm-ish day. We skipped a trip to the islands because of the crowds and settled in for a relaxing lunch. The food was good - a creative ancient grains salad was... More

During summertime, we can enjoy drinking outside seats with great view of the Statue of Liberty! It is amazing. Please be careful, from in the middle of October (starting feel cold outside), they are closed the outside bar service.
