We reserved months in advance. We were excited for the trip and all was top shelf from the greeting to the boat (which was fabulously smooth) to the very attentive staff. We were offered upgraded options for our meals and decided on the filet and tail. We also splurged on an expensive Cabernet. As it happened there was a glitch... More

We had our wedding party on the Bateaux in Oct 2014, but although the evening was perfect, it passed pretty much in a blur. So returning to New York, we decided to treat ourselves to the deluxe package, and boy!, was it worth it..... Champagne and canapés on arrival. We were greeted by Peter who attended to us all evening.... More

From start to finish this was a memorable occasion. We were greeted by the friendliest staff and instantly offered drinks to start off our evening. The entertainment was excellent and also provided us with some local knowledge of the sites we were passing at the time. The food was very impressive and timed perfectly throughout the night to make sure... More

Imagine a spacious Bateau Mouche transported from the Seine in Paris to the Hudson in New York, comfortable and well fitted serving Dinner whilst enjoying the most spectacular views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty - these would be just amazing and the food is really a matter of secondary importance. You can book various locations... More

Have used this many times and it is always great. The food is surprisingly tasty and the wine list fairly comprehensive. The staff does a nice job in tight quarters and are very accommodating to many requests. Service is quick and very good. A nice event overall.

We do a dinner cruise at every place we visit and I would have to say this is one of the best we have been on. They can be quite pricing but we have never been disappointed. A great way to see the sites of New York at night. Highly recommend to do this at least one of your nights... More

We're relatively local to New York, but we were looking for a relaxing evening without the kids, and to see the city from a different perspective. Bateaux NY was a great choice. The ride was very comfortable, the service was good, the food was decent, and the views were incredible. We paid for a window seat, and it was worth... More

I experienced the dinner cruise with my girlfriend in December and we were completely blown away with how perfect the night was. The vessel was perfectly set up for the diners to experience the views and also the ambience within. The food was excellent and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We have the inclusive drinks package which was fantastic,... More

Windows of NYC on Christmas eve ride that had it all. This is a must dinner for romance and elegance. Simply breath-taking views of Manhattan. Music and ambiance lends to a warm glass enclosed riverboat tour with excellent food.

Staying in Chelsea

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.
