“Comfortable and Enjoyable but Prepare to Wait”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

You will enjoy the fine dining and there's a good jazz trio and singer for memorable Sunday brunches. The location by the Hudson River is scenic and you can eat indoors or outside. If you don't mind the endless houseflies, the outside seating under the canopy is excellent, the service, however, is not great and leaves a lot to be desired. We've visited several times and each time the beer taps aren't working properly (requiring slow, belabored filling of each pint) and servers do not address arriving customers is a timely fashion. Once the servers finally take our order, the food arrives well after we've demolished the bread basket and most of our drinks. Fortunately we enjoy the atmosphere and each other's company, though swatting flies gets tiresome. The food is well prepared and very tasty, definitely worth a wait though you'll have to decide whether it's worth the wait you'll face. Enjoy!

“Great location, excellent food”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

You can't beat the location. Right on the Hudson River. A short walk from the Amtrak station. There's a hotel too.

Reviewed June 30, 2012

We did brunch at the Rhinecliff Hotel. A little disaponted that they were stetting up for a wedding which precluded us form sititng outside, but the view from inside tou was very nice.

I had a goat cheese and mushroom quiche, outstanding, my wife a chopped salad, the dressing was tastey and light. Service was very good.

Food is pricey. Place can get very crowded especially around sunset viewing time. An improvement over the old hotel, though. Live music at Sunday brunch. Home made catsup memorable.
