Go to the back of the Boathouse to the 'fast food' section, prices a lot cheaper with good choice. Very busy. Indoor and outdoor seats so you can still say you ate at the Boathouse without the price.

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, we ensured a table was booked for an evening dinner by the lake outside, checked the menu online to know what to expect and then had the most wonderful evening of our trip to NYC. We arrived 15 minutes early to have a drink by the bar, the staff brought us a device to let us know when our table would be ready (it went off 5 minutes before our booking time), table was on time.

Food was excellent and there was a great choice of wines; we had the stripped sea bass and the halibut - both outstanding.

Staff were all very friendly and helpful and deserved the cover charge.

Would I recommend this? If its something special you are looking for and want to have a night to remember when visiting this lovely park then yes yes yes.

Nice view of the lake. Starters were simply excellent. Since there was no vegetarian entree on the menu, the lady at the table had it made one for me specially (...and it was good).

Well placed in Central Park,good service and food,you MUST book though..as very busy.Ask to sit overlooking the lake as definately much better than inside on a hot day!

i had seen the boathouse in movies etc so i planned to go for lunch. the weather was lovely and the view was lovely. the food i had was a gourmet type burger for lunch and it was presented very well and tasted nice with little favoured dips. i love the boathouse and i am coming here from ireland to celebrate my birthday at the end of august, i cannot recommend it enough. u agree with others that you need to book or else you will have to wait around 20 mins or so!!
