We did reserve the guaranteed window table. That was awesome, however don't feel slighted by not reserving one. The vessel's walls and ceilings are glass,... More

The Bateaux was a very special, top of the line dinner cruise. From the moment we boarded our server, Peter, was not only attentive but a pleasure. We were a group of 6 celebrating my husbands birthday. Peter made sure to find us if our food came out and we were outside. He was a wonderful server. The cruise itself... More

As a travel professional I get to experience a lot of sightseeing services and providers, but Bateaux NYC is by far a superior value for anyone looking for a classy dinner cruise and show in New York City. Service - friendliness- professionalism - value are the key words here folks. Eric Thomas

I would choose a different boat tour.The food is subpar and service was so slow we got up from our table to find a waiter.There are no chairs on the deck so standing better be easy for you.

We splashed out on an evening dinner cruise 5 years ago and it was pretty much the best thing we did on that holiday. We weren't sure that this year's trip would live up to our memories but it was truly magical. The service was attentive, the food good and the scenery unparalleled. There were a combination of birthdays, anniversaries,... More

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
