Diner Reviews
  • "Good food, good service, beautiful ambiance, and amazing views. Unfortunately the outdoor patio was not yet open, but I have no negative remarks about dining here. It is pricey but that was to be expected. If its a beatiful day out and your in lower manhattan, I strongly recommend making a stop here."

  • "We were a group of nine. Because it was absolutely pouring out - we basically had the entire restaurant to ourselves. The host was nice enough to go outside to assist one of our party to find the restaurant since it is in the park and she was by herself. The food was wonderful as was the service. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and will go back, to hopefully a drier night so we could actually see the harbor."

  • "Went for a team lunch here. The food was absolutely delicious. Had the pumpkin rissotto, yum! The ambiance is great and it was quiet too. Just perfect for a quick lunch."

  • "We went to Battery Gardens for their Valentine's Day prix fixe dinner. We were seated by the window and wowed with a spectacular, clear view of the Statue of Liberty. We both had the filet for our main course, which was delicious and cooked as we ordered. We were also very pleased with their champagne selection and not disappointed by the bottle we chose. The appetizers, though, failed to impress. I had the tuna tartar which was overpowered by a citrus dressing -- definitely would not order again. Though those who took our order and brought our food were polite, we would have liked to have been introduced to a waiter we would see the entire night. Overall: Great ambiance, impressive view, great atmosphere, and good food."

  • "Went there with the greatest valentine day ever. The minute I stepped in the place wowed me. Talked to the owner for a bit, he had my fiancé and I laughing such a good guy. Place was looking real sharp. Food was very uniquely designed and came beautifully prepared. It was very enjoyable especially if your looking to try something new. Service was awesome always checked up on us. Place was very romantic. Definitely doing this again next year. I would recommend this place to all couples old and young, fellas looking for a place to wow you and your date, this is the place to go to."

  • "One of the most outstanding views in all of NYC. My husband and I were married here 4 years ago and always return for a romantic night out. The dining room is large and beautifully decorated with panoramic views of the harbor, battery park and the Statue of Liberty. The food and service are always great. Battery Gardens is a special gem in NYC and the owner Paul treats everyone like family."

  • "I found Battery Gardens on open table and they were serving a $75.00 pre-fix menu. A little pricy but worth it for the Ambiance, Outside View & food. My wife and I had a drink at the bar than moved upstairs a for dinner. Service was quick and unobtrusive. Food came well paced and was excellent. Never felt rushed once. I would like to give a special thank you to the entire staff. My wife left her Swarovski necklace and bracelets that I bought her for valentines day under the table and we left. Not till the next day did she remember. I called back right away left a message and around 10am I received the good news they had it and my wife was wearing it the same night. I would 100% come back and recommend Battery Gardens to all my friends."

  • "I went there for valentine's dinner. The food was good but nothing special at all, it's like something that you can prepare at home. The service is not good, I waited about 20 min for a glass of champaigne. I hate that kind of service. It is not terrible but there are definetely hundred of better places to go in NYC."

  • "DIFFICULT TO FIND, BUT WORTH IT! THE OWNER STAYED ON THE PHONE WITH US, HELPING TO GUIDE US INTO THE PARKING LOT. HE ACTUALLY CAME OUTSIDE TO MAKE SURE WE WERE OK. BELIEVE IY OR NOT, THERE IS ACTUALLY FREE PARKING. AFTER BETTER BELLINIS THAN EVEN HARRY'S BAR, WE HAD A FABULOUS MEAL, SERVED BY A FRIENDLY AND ATTENTIVE STAFF. THE WINE LIST WAS WELL PRICED. WE HAD A BOTTLE OF JORDAN CAB FOR LESS THAN $100, WHICH IS A FAIR MARKUP. THE AMBIENCE, DECOR, AND VIEW WERE UNMATCHABLE. WE REALLY CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN AND LOOK FORWARD TO DINING OUTSIDE ON THEIR TERRACE."

  • "Enjoyed an outdoor brunch on a slightly drizzly day. We were seated under a large umbrella and a tree with white lights. They offered to take us inside, but we were fine and enjoyed a uniquely romantic brunch overlooking the water with excellent service and tasty dishes."
