Great time was had by all...

Our whole extended family of nine gathered here to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our large round table was set back away from the wall of beautiful windows, but we were still able to enjoy the wonderful view of the Manhattan skyline in the distance.

We had my sons engagement party there and the food was out of this world. The atmosphere, decor, view of New York and outside patios gave it a charm like no other. All our appetizers were great, carving station was cooked perfect, the shrimp, clams and oysters were so fresh, the buffet, one dish out did the next. The staff... More

The food was pretty good, but not as good as expected. The service was excellent and our table received anything it needed immediately. The view was magnificent. The food however was a bit over priced for its average level of deliciousness, though I would still recommend this restaurant to anyone because of the the great view and service.

I had the filet mignon and butter nut squash soup. The wine was divine. The meal was perfect. The view beautiful. I got lost as it is nestled away on eagle rock Avenue and the signage is discreet. They have valet parking as well.

If you are looking for a special evening out, this is an excellent choice. The view of the Manhattan skyline is spectacular, and the menu provides options for everyone. Food preparation and presentation is wonderful. All in all, one of our favorite spots.

I never knew this place existed. Was there for a professional meeting so our meals were limited to Salmon, Chicken and Vegetarian special. This venue is located by the Eagle Rock Reservation Overlook. From inside the restaurant, there are spectacular views of the New York City skyline. It sits high up on an overlook area and the vast spread of... More

I have been here a few times. Recently was here for New Years. First class service, Great food, especially considering the New Years crowd. Very impressive facility. But the number one feature is the impressive view - The building is on the top of a very high cliff and has a clear view of the entire NYC skyline. WOW.

Had a few drinks here tonight. Nice place, great waiters, hard to fault, spectacular views from the bar, and fully intend to visit again as soon as we return. Highly recommended, very classy place.
