We wanted somewhere special whilst in NYC to celebrate my birthday and had spotted some really good reviews for The River Cafe so decided to book this and used Open Table to do so.
The restaurant is on the Brooklyn side so you get an amazing view of the Manhatten skyline whilst enjoying some delicious food.
The menu is a fixed price at $115 per person for 3 courses. There was a very good selection of starters, mains and deserts to choose from. The quality of the food was excellent, service was very attentive without being rushed and the atmosphere of the restaurant was welcoming.
If you're a chocolate fan, I would recommend the Brooklyn Bridge desert. Truly a chocoholic delight.
If you're looking for somewhere special then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The River Cafe and would certainly return for the good food and excellent views.
