Very nice view of harbor, Statue of Liberty

Outdoor seating offered a very nice view. Although the restaurant seemed a little dated, the food was very nice and plentiful. We ordered goat cheese pizza which was tasty. The views were very nice - you are directly across from the Statue of Liberty as well as Ellis Island. Reasonably priced.

Great pizza non existent service. We had really great Italian pizza. Pepperoni and the ham variant. Waited 20 minutes for desert menu before giving up.

and expensive ones at that! It did seem like they were grilled at least. But it was just lunch and we were hungry - so filled us up.

This is also a really nice place to go for a walk and enjoy the gardens, views of all the boats, ships, Staten Island Ferry. Pier A Harbor House serves excellent seafood. Again another break from the hustle & bustle of the city.

I made a reservation at this restaurant on a Saturday night for my boyfriend's birthday. That afternoon I got a phone message from the restaurant saying they did not have a table for us because they were having a private party inside and it was going to rain so they couldn't seat us outside. This was a few hours before... More

after a trip to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island our granddaughter decided it was time for a snack. We had stopped in on a previous visit and enjoyed the fare so it was quite convenient to stop on our way to the ferry landing subway station and pick-up a sandwich. The garden is open air with umbrella... More

We recently attended a wedding reception here. It was wonderful! The bride and groom rented the entire space. Unfortunately, it rained during the entire evening, although the view of the harbor, the Stature of Liberty, and Ellis Island was still great. The gardens and upstairs balcony were lovely. Cocktail hour and hors d'oeuvres were served downstairs and the main reception... More

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.
