This is a fairly typical NYC restaurant. What makes it stand out is the view, both inside and outside. Food and service are good, not great.

This restaurant never makes you dissapointed. The food is well prepared, tastes deliciously and the surrounding, in door or outdoor, is magnificent, overlooking the statue of Liberty. The staff is proffessional and welcoming. Enjoy it for lunch as well as dinner.

It was the 2nd of January, it was cold, foggy and dark. I'd decided late afternoon to get on the Staten Island Ferry to go see my favourite ol' gal. As I got back off the ferry and walked towards the subway station at South Ferry, Battery Park really is incredibly badly lit, I stumbled upon this fine little eatery.... More

I'd say that you probably don't necessarily come here for the food, it's more for the view. It is wonderful sitting outside watching the boats cruise by on the harbor. We were there on a lovely day, and could have stayed for hours! Our server, Tarek, was just wonderful. It was a pleasure to spend some time talking to him.... More

Yes, it is a great view from this outdoor bar/patio. The beer was cold. Unfortunately, so was the bartender. Guy could make better tips if he had a hint of a personality. Oh well, nice sunny day for a beer with a view.

If going to the Statue of Liberty you will walk through Battery Gardens. A pleasant shady area along the river side and close to the financial district.

After you've visited the Statute of Liberty on a nice day and you haven't had enough, you can dine at Battery Gardens and sit outside and continue to marvel over Lady Liberty. We did just that and I got the grilled chicken salad and it was ok--I'm not a fan of dark chicken meat but that was on the salad.... More

We were there for lunch because we were starving and we couldn't see any other restaurant nearby. + The view was great. You can see the statue of liberty. - we ordered the filet medium rare. The meat of my boyfriend was good but mine was burned (not acceptable for us because they charge 40 $). I wanted to tell... More

Delicious meal, attentive service, heart-stopping views! If you're a New Yorker, it's a great place to take out-of-town guests on a clear summer evening. It will be a memorable night for all of you. If you're not a New Yorker, it's worth the trip to the Battery to eat at this restaurant and walk around the area.

My boyfriend and I had a 3pm trip on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and arrived early. We wandered about the park for a while, decided lunch was needed and the Battery Gardens appeared to be the only place with proper food available. We first looked at the menu, concluded it was a bit pricey but it looked... More
