My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch. We had crab cakes to start, which were excellent. For my main I had the pork loin and can honestly say I have never had a better cooked piece of pork in my life. It was perfect. The staff were very helpful in choosing a wine and taking pictures for... More

Finally got to dine there. Officially full but getting a table once we were there wasn't too much fuss. Hard to fault. Superb wine and food. Efficient and friendly staff.

You're not going here for the service. Despite the fact our server was quite nice, nothing was quick. If you book for a 2 they won't give you a lakeside table but apart from that the appetizer menu was really tasty, in particular the octopus.

Couldn't resist an hour in a rowboat for $15!!! Great views of skyline and fun to explore hidden coves of the lake. Nice to just float and take it all in!!!

My 8-year old loved rowing us around the lake! The lake is a bit crowded close to the launch pad, but once you get away, there's plenty of space for kids to take a turn rowing. It was a nice diversion from walking and site-seeing!

This was the most favourite part of my trip to NYC. Going underneath the lovely bridge and then seeing the great views of the skyline in the main part of the water was great. It took a while to get used to the dynamics of the boat but definitely worth the money.

This review is not for the restaurant but for the boat rentals. I cannot recommend this activity enough! Renting a boat is so cheap! It is only $15 per boat for an hour, which is more than enough time. The views from the boat are stunning. You are surrounded by Central Park and can see skyscrapers in the background. The... More

The inside restaurant (a beautiful porch area) offers a break from heat or cold weather. Good lunch options. Automatic gratuity added of... More

The view is iconic so you expect the food to real suffer. It doesn't. Roast pork was tremendous as was the sea bass and the double slider burger. Not pricey really either. About what you should expect from the location. Great way to spend lunch and soak up the terrace and the boathouse feel. I'll talk about this for a... More
