Worst steak ever. Due to the location, the prices are outrageous. I must say the views are very nice. But you also come for the food and I would not recommend. It wasn’t just my plate, we were a group of 8 and no one...was thrilled with their meals.More

We have been here a few times over the years but our most recent visit was the worst. The covid guidelines were not being adhered to by the staff or other customers in common areas. The night we were there for dinner it rained and...since they do not have an outdoor roof covering all of their tables we had to scramble for cover back inside. The waiters watched us struggle to try and salvage our meal, but did nothing to help eventually someone came over to ask if we wanted our check or if we wanted to continue our meal. We expressed we would like to have dessert and so we were moved to another table that was also not completely covered but at this point we just wanted to finish our meal. We understand the restaurant can't control the weather but since all we can do is eat outdoors right now it would make sense to invest in a retractable roof or plastic covering so that all customers can eat in peace. As for the food it has always been mediocre (our stuffed artichokes were very oily) and the portions have definitely gotten very small in comparison to what you pay for it. I do not think we will be coming back any time soon.More

I enjoyed it here very much. It was a little cramped honestly, but aside from that we had a fantastic time. The view was beautiful. We ordered the cheese plate, which was divine. We also ordered the classic steak with fries, the fingerling potatoes, and...the black ink pasta. The edges of the steak were a little overcooked, but as my boyfriend continues on it was perfect in the middle. Not a big deal. My black ink pasta was out of this world. The fingerlings were amazing too. For dessert he got the huge chocolate cake, which was, in fact, huge!! And delicious lol. I got the crepe Nutella which was also delicious. It’s definitely pricey. But you’re paying for the views. Some of the reviews state service is rude. I did not find that at all. Do they come around often- yes, but I did not feel rushed. They were more so asking how the food and experience was.More

As previous reviews stated the view is gorgeous. Service was fine and food was tasty. We had seafood cappalini, blank ink pasta and steak, Unfortunately, COVID 19 guidelines were not being adhered. Tables were very close to each other. Waitstaff were not wearing masks properly....Managers were not wearing masks at all. Many customers did not wear masks while in lobby or other indoor common areas.More

We booked this restaurant for a family dinner overlooking the Manhattan skyline. We did not enjoy the atmosphere. Pushy waiters, bar hostesses who were loudly chewing their gum, food not as impressive as you would expect from a place like this. Cleary not at the...level of the prices on the menu. More worrisome, the meal we have ordered for our gluten intolerant daughter contained gluten, despite making sure the meal is glutenfree. Though most of the ingredients were gluten-free, the sauce on the meat wasn't.! Big mistake which can be easily avoided with little more attention to details and less superficiality.More

Loved the food, as well as the atmosphere! The filet was cooked to perfection and actually the best steak I’ve eaten in a long time. If you’re in search of a breathtaking view and amazing food, I would highly recommend Waterside Restaurant!

Stopped by for a drink on a early Monday afternoon. Went there for the view. Surprised at the great value for lunch and terrific service by Ariel. Sliced steak sandwich was the best we have ever had and at a very reasonable cost. Table at...a window looking at prime Manhattan skyline. A bottle of wine, under $30, completed the meal. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary that day. Actually, we had dinner reservations later in the day elsewhere, and just stopped in for a drink and view. Instead we enjoyed a few hours of delicious food and views and again, the service was friendly and top notch. Just a delight to go to a first class place that is classy in atmosphere but down to earth and no attitude.More

My girlfriend and I wanted to go down to the water to enjoy an unlikely sunny warm day as we head into fall. It was amazing. We were under the canopy and the breeze was delightful. I admit the food is a bit expensive for...the Sunday buffet. It is $39. It includes one alcoholic beverage. There was a mimosa that was overly sweet and not much orange juice. The Eggs Benedict had a soggy English muffin. They did not refill the bacon and sausage quickly. The guacamole was very good. I asked for half and half or cream for the coffee which I found out they do not have.More
