    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!

    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.

    Would I return, absolutely. Different expectations next time around. Frankly the food was OK, with the creative menu I expected more. Staff was very friendly, but the youthful servers were trying to hard to come off as upscale and accommodating ( kinda cute and entertaining). Great staff and a strong desire to accommodate guests. Can't say enough about the view ... Worth going but set your expectations accordingly as the food may just be ok .... I'm going again for sunset and decent food, hoping I will be pleasantly proven wrong

    We arrived early, our guest being in a wheelchair, and were seated by a window in the bar area, facing south. It was so cozy we decided to stay there, and ordred drinks and a number of small dishes. All terrific, attentive wait staff made sure everything was to our liking. We live in the area and have been to this restaurant in the past, but this time it was so totally charming.

    I mentioned clearly in the reservation that it was a birthday party. The waitress did not pay attention. We were not offered any things special for the birthday. Services were not friendly. Asked for just a picturing for seconds, but walked away and did not return. Cod fish and rice was very salty, especially rice cannot be enjoyed. appetizers were good. Table corner was good, very good river view. Somewhat disappointing for overall. Have been there occasionally. If not improved, we go somewhere else.

    We were seated at a window seat that I requested. Unfortunately it was on top of a floor vent and by the end of dinner my right arm was freezing. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed. It took about 20 minutes for him to come for our drink order. He began to tell us specials and stopped saying he needed to see if they were even still available. Our reservation was for 7:30 so I didn't understand how you could be out of specials at that time. When he finally returned about another 20 minutes later he said they were out of the surf and turf special. Disappointed. We ordered appetizers entree and dessert. The timing of them coming out was very reasonable. Food was very good. Dessert had Happy Anniversary written on it. Nice touch. Will return

    We were first shown to a table away from window although we had requested a window table both in on line reservation +upon entering the restaurant. This was despite 2empty window tables for 4 available. I walked over to one table at the window +said, "we would like to sit here!" We were subsequently seated there. Our waitress was friendly, made note of my allergy, attentive throughout dinner. My salmon was delicious, although the portion was very small. The other woman in the party enjoyed her tuna, but again a tiny portion. The men on the other hand were extremely disappointed in their seafood and duck dinners. The seafood dinner was tasteless+ had 3 pieces of seafood +a few small pieces of fish. duck was so well done,difficult to eat.

    Lovely restaurant on the Hudson River with beautiful views. We were a party of 4 seated inside near the window, and the views were just as nice as sitting outside. Very good food, and good service. My only complaint is that it was quite chilly in the restaurant; the A/C could be turned down a bit. Otherwise, a very pleasant dining experience.

    A typical girls night out, we would probably be sitting in the restaurant from anywhere between 1 hour and 30mins to 2 hours, this restaurant got us out in 1 hour, i don't know if it was because of the late reservation 11pm, once we sat down we were told the kitchen would close in 5 minutes, ODD! especially because your taking reservations for dinner at 11pm. Food was satisfying i had the lobster roll, white sangria was good and the dessert was ok although my cousin loved their chocolate cake, i thought the raspberry sorbet was delicious. All in all food was good, but i don't think we will be going back. Reader if you do go make sure you make a 8p -10p reservation so you don't feel rushed.
