Had a lovely meal with my Boyfriend here on our second day in the city! It was delightful, the cocktails were also very good! If we visit New York again in the future we will return

Four of us stopped at this place on the water. It has a tremendous view and is a place to watch the water activity with ships running about from the harbor business. Had a beer and their parmesan fries and crab quesadillas for light snack. The food was quite good, particularly the "Q's" and for the location, prices were right.... More

The service here is absolutely terrible. If your only getting a bottled beer you'll be fine. The view is fantastic though. -4 stars for service and 5 stars for view = 1 star.

I lived right nextdoor and took two different sets of visitors here given their location and view. Both times, our order was brought out incorrectly after almost a 45 min. to an hour wait WHEN THERE WERE VERY FEW OTHER CUSTOMERS THERE!!! When we asked for the manager, the ONE table near us started griping about the same thing (wait... More

When you are in the financial district this place is great to visit in the night It's alive and has fantastic view. A big recommendation is the hot dog made of Angus beef! Friendly fast service!

This place is nice and looks new. My only issue was the service. We waited almost 20 minutes to order drinks and almost 15 to get the check. They definitely need more servers especially if they have private events. Also, I can't drink alcohol because I'm on whole 30 diet and ordered club soda with lime and can't believe they... More

Was thinking of this as convenience, it's by the cruise round the harbour from Hornblower cruises. But actually had a decent meal here, good caesar salad (spelt 'ceased salad'!), hamburger, mac n cheese bites $9-13.

10 dollar guacamole really? When is the rest of the guacamole coming? Not even a cup! Don't bother to have a snack in this place. Not worth it! You have to Pay extra for tomatoes and lettuce and got one slice of tomatoes and an inch of lettuce. Come on !!

I live in NYC and am always on the hunt for a nice place to sit on the water and have a beer. My husband and I went to Watermark last week (I had heard about it but had forgotten about it so it was a nice find). We happened to hit it on a night when a band was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
