    Seven of us had lunch here since we were in the Hudson Valley to visit a nearby attraction. Wonderful ambiance on the Hudson, service was very efficient, we had a great server. There were not a great number of options in the area but this was one of the better ones.

    went for brunch with my friends. The setting is beautiful and we could get a table outside, but it was a VERY humid day, so we opted for inside. The food is just OK, really overpriced and nothing special. The service was just OK too. The guy who poured water in our glasses, spilled the water and pieces of ice on the table - didn't apologize and didn't clean it up! The waitress was nice enough. If you want an exceptional food with great views, go to X2O in Yonkers. It is also located right on Hudson and the food is delicious and presentation of it exceptional too.

    great Hudson River view. Fine service and food. If you eat inside on a warm humid day you may need to ask them to turn AC down. Our table was next to a window and three was a vent next to our table. Very cold air until asked to turn off.

    We decided to wait the hour for an outside table. After an hour and a half wait after my husband asked what happened to the "only an hour wait"? The hostess said she texted my cell phone and they've been waiting for us. I'm still waiting for the text! Anyway after we sat down after 8:00 having a 6:30 reservation it was too cold, too dark to see the view and the service was way too slow! The menu wasn't impressive at all as far as food choices and once the food was served our party of 6 didn't think the food was that good. Same with the desserts. However, the drinks and the sunset was amazing! I could have had that in my back yard though. Parking was also annoying! Don't think we will be back anytime soon.

    Went out to dinner with my wife and everything was great. We were seated right away, outside as we desired. The service was friendly and attentive. The food arrived hot and very well prepared. It was tasty plentiful. Afterwards at the bar, we bumped into some family and friends and spent the night drinking, talking and having a great time with the view of the Palisades and George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridge in the background. I would definitely recommend this place to my closest friend and we are planning to return real soon.

    We had 12 people for an early Saturday birthday dinner. The place is beautiful, fantastic view inside and out. Menu had good variety. Prices were reasonable for quality and selection. (The fixed price menus for holidays are much more expensive, especially for a large group.) Service was friendly, patient, and responsive. A lovely evening.

    If you're looking for a casual elegant place to relax & enjoy good food & a good meal - then look no further than Half Moon. One of Westchester's hottest spots. This restaurant's got it all - romantic ambience, beautiful views of the Hudson (indoors and out), and food to satisfy the connoisseur of foodie's. Duck taco appetizer is a favorite. Bar tender mixes a mean drink as well.

    We've been to Half Moon for brunch, which we also highly recommend, but this was our first time for lunch. We had lobster rolls to start. We always have them when we're in Maine and these were equal to the best we've ever had there. Two of us had the prime rib wedge sandwich. The prime rib was perfectly prepared and the caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms and Swiss cheese were perfect toppers - all on the best roll. The pineapple slaw was very tasty - and then there were the shoestring fries. I'm not a big fan of fries, but these were outstanding, the best I've ever eaten! The third member of our party had the pastrami on rye which was as good as any from a New York deli. To sum it up - GREAT food, GREAT view - the perfect combination!

    enjoyed the evening, food was good, service was good, atmo great. ordered the tuna from menu, asked for medium rare, it came out rare. Think the chef was rushed or wait staff forgot to specify. It was very good as it was, but not medium rare. Great scenery there with wonderful views of river and bridges (far away) Other order was salmon and it was very satisfying. We'll go back for another try.

    Food is above average, although a bit pricey for the better meat and fish entrees. Burgers are great. Salad a bit skimpy. Chicken Milanese was excellent. Outdoor table, with view of Hudson, was outstanding on the beautiful evenings when I've eaten at the river's edge. Noise level was quiet because we were outdoors. Inside may be noisy on an evening when al fresco isn't possible. Good place; will go again.

    This was a wonderful 1st date experience. Our table was right by the Hudson River. Excellent view. The food was very good. The wait staff was very attentive. Overall very nice experience. I will definitely be coming back. The only thing that would have improved the evening was the music. The Jamaican music did not fit the surrounding area. It was too loud, but we did manage to tune it out.

    My daughter recommended this restaurant to us. We had a great view of the city and had a leisurely dinner to enjoy it. We shared several appetizers( the duck tacos were amazing) since there were so many too choose from. The mussels had a nice kick, and while some of them did not open up, we brought it to our waiters attention, and he brought them back to the kitchen to steam open. The service was attentive and we enjoyed drinks on the patio after dinner. Looking forward to dining there in the fall to enjoy the foliage.

    This restaurant is in a beautiful location. There are outdoor tables as well as a spacious interior dining area. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It is fairly expensive, but worth it especially for a special occasion. They have their own parking lot, so parking is free and easy. I also saw a sign for a free shuttle to the train station. Very convenient!

    I went to Half Moon, as it is right on the water and is a pretty place to dine. I took my daughter (Age 33) for Sunday Brunch . We had reservations. The food was good. However, we were seated in the back of the restaurant - LITERALLY IN A CORNER and faced two walls; one that separated us from the wait staff - the other wall was to the left of us. Absolutely the worse seating. I was so embarrassed. How much money does one have to have - to put a table in that location is a disgrace.

    It was my second time going to this restaurant and I continued to be pleased with both food and service. I arrived 40 minutes prior to my reservation and was seated immediately. The food was excellent, though my mac and cheese was prepared differently than it was the first time I went. I think my only suggestion is to prepare the food more consistently. If you're serving very cheesy Mac and cheese one time, it shouldn't be dry the next time. However, that wasn't a make or break for me. The food was still great. I took a group there for their first time and they loved the view + the food as well.
