A word from La Marina
Dyckman Marina has been a vital part of upper Manhattan's unique waterfront culture for more than two centuries. The newly rebuilt restaurant, bar, lounge and events space covers more than 75,000 square feet of Hudson River waterfront in Upper Manhattan. A short walk from the A-train, La Marina is the ideal spot in NYC to enjoy cocktails at sunset, to hop off your bike for a break, to host your event, or to enjoy a romantic, moonlit dinner for two. We're also walking distance from the Cloisters. With stunning river views, dining at La Marina is an "out of city" experience. Taste fresh-shucked oysters from 'Geppetto', the classic raw-bar boat, sample our famous Chicken Lollipops, crack open a fresh grilled lobster, or dig into a steak with a side of shishito peppers, both charred to perfection.

Diner Reviews
  • "We went to La Marina on a Wednesday night to hear the Cuban band that was advertised on their website. We knew that the food was terrible (and it really is). We knew the service was awful (and it is worse than terrible they are inexperienced and have no clue about anything on the menu). The band was supposed to start playing at 8pm. By 8:30pm still no band. We asked the waitress a couple of times why there was no band and she had no idea. Finally, around 9:30pm the manager came by after another waiter went up to him and asked. We never got an answer as to why there was no band as advertised. He said a Brazilian woman would sing later. Overall, a great place to go for the view. But don't eat there and don't expect anyone to know anythin"

  • "I went to La Marina for brunch with a friend from out of town. This place is a gem for brunch! The food portions are perfectly sized and the staff was very attentive to our needs. My friend got the Eggs Benedict and said they were fantastic with homemade Hollandaise sauce. I got the French Toast, which was light & fluffy Challah bread with fresh berries and a great whipped cream. For brunch, I recommend booking a table at 12PM for right when they open. It's not crowded and you can really enjoy the scenery with a table right on the railing."

  • "Made a reservation to follow a great chef that just recently started working there. Great girls night out, food was amazing and the mojita was just perfect!!! Lil loud, so if u are on a date take the outside table. After dinner you could always stay by the bar to party, but it gets crazy crowed!!"

  • "It was a lot of effort into this place after dealing with traffic and limited parking. DO NOT DRIVE UNLESS YOU HAVE TO! After getting to the restaurant, we were seated at a great table with a wonderful view. We met our waiter and he told us that he and another waitress (he pointed to) will both be taking care of us. Unfortunately, the waitress was not aware of that because when we left, she passed us about 5 times and he was gone for about 15 mins. We finally saw him, asked him for drinks and he was surprised to find that the his partner never came to the table. We waited for everything we ordered (including ice tea). With the view, I would have been ok with the average food but the service was just so so bad!"

  • "The restaurant is great and the food was good. The dessert serving of the flan could have been a little bigger. The parking is terrible we waited 20 mins for valet to park us. They need a different valet company. The views are great. The place is fun and the music is fab."

  • "We went on a Wednesday. Music was a little top loud in bar area, but once we were seated the noise level was better. The bar area is more Club like, where the dining area is reminiscent of large fine dining venues in cities with lower cost per foot. Very open area with breezes coming of the Hudson."

  • "My husband and I choose to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary at La Marina because of it's beautiful atmosphere and location near the water. The waiter was very attentive and I informed us about the an appetizer the chef had prepare that day. Overall I enjoyed my meal and the ambience of the restuarant ."

  • "La Marina continues to improve and is now one of the finest bar/restaurant spots ALL the way uptown. Few can compare. Ambiance is close to perfection and when the weather cooperates, can't be beat. Food is also quite fine. A bit of a restricted menu but that probably helps keep quality high and regulars know what to expect and are satisfied. It's great to have a spot like this uptown so going downtown is a choice, not a necessity. THUMBS way up. La Marina is Right There!"

  • "Besides the great location on the water in Manhattan which is unusual in itself, the open air roominess of the indoor dining room is a great selling point. However, the most impressive attribute of La Marina is the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. An excellent experience overall."

  • "We went to La Marina to celebrate my wife's birthday and she LOVED it! The food was very good, the desserts were fantastic! Great ambiance & feel throughout the place. I would highly recommend a visit to celebrate a special occasion or someplace just to hang out. Be prepared to drive around for some time to look for parking...unless you show up earlier. FYI - My wife already wants to go back!"

  • "I have to say I read a lot of reviews that didn't like the food. I have to say I was nicely surprised. The food was tasty and the service was good. All in all we will be back. Nice to have a place to go and sit by the water and enjoy a good meal."

  • "I enjoyed my service at La Marina. The place is huge, so I didn't realize there was an actual dining area. The dining area was much quieter than the lounge area. I went with a friend, but it would be great for a romantic spot (planning to go with my boyfriend soon!) The service was great! The waiter was attentive. At one point, the manager came over and brought us complimentary shots of patron AND dessert! When my steak was over cooked, I sent it back and literally a new was out in 7 minutes (yes, I was timing! lol). and super delicious! when you finish your meal, you can even enjoy the lounge if you are up for it!"

  • "We drove up 2hrs from CT to celebrate my birthday and I have to say it was worth it. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was great, atmosphere was entertaining. The view was beautiful. I loved being right by the water. I would love to drive back up soon. Definitely would recommend."

  • "We were blown away by the scenic views at La Marina, however it took forever for our food to come out as well as our drink order was messed up. I would give it another chance because I think it has so much potential but I hope they get their wait staff in order before I return. I understand that is a major complaint about La Marina - the service."

  • "This place is like finding hidden treasure! An oasis in the concrete jungle. The view is spectacular especially at sunset or at night! Great food, excellent service. It was my husbands birthday and he loved everything!"

  • " It was well worth the visit.The setting on the river's edge north of the G.W. bridge is perfect. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated, as per our request, at an outside table. our water glasses were filled, menus presented by a friendly server. We ordered the house Sangria. It exceeded our expectations. After starting with a really tasty grilled peach and a Caesar salad, all chose the Jambalaya (read Paella!). The dish was loaded with shrimp, clams, sausage and wonderfully seasoned rice. The new manager appeared to be genuinely interested in each guests reaction to the restaurant. The imposed 20% tip added to the bill is a turnoff but, not disturbing because service was worth it.. Management might want to rethink policy."

  • "The view is stunning, but that is the only reason to go. The food was moderate only but the service was most disappointing: it is slow, but that was to be expected. Our steak arrived without the promised 'yucca fries' (they're just regular fries) and over cooked; we sent it back and 15 mins later the replacement arrived without the dip accompanying the first effort. Our server also returned to tell us that the first steak was cooked according to our instructions but because it was dark, it looked as though it was overcooked - effectively telling us we were wrong. Two hours into the meal at this stage we didn't stay for dessert. they included the tip in the final bill so we didn't have a chance to register our displeasure - beware."

  • "From the moment we walkes up the ramp to the outside bar and seating/ lounge area, I was IN! We ate inside the shaded cool restaurant. What a gem of a spot. With a view if the GWB and the Palisades, you can't go wrong. Great lighting as the sun went down while we were there. We started Dinner with grilled octopus in a sweet and hot chili sauce with tomatoes and cava beans that was OOTW! The octopus was a bit chewy. We also had mussels with smoked bacon in a beer broth. We each got our own entree. Grilled crispy salmon with a sweet corn purée, squash veggies. excellent. We also had grilled chicken presidente. excellent. Side of grilled corn good. Cheesecake w berries. There was so much variety on the menu, I am definitely going back."

  • "We picked the perfect evening to enjoy dining al fresco at LaMarina. It can get quite windy sitting on the patio, but you can't beat the view. The food was good... not great, unfortunately. The wait staff was very attentive. LaMarina offers so many different types of experiences; private parties, bar scene for drinks and apps, full dinner areas, bottle-service cabanas. Since there's a shore or beach feeling, you feel like you're miles away from NYC, so that in itself is worth going."

  • "The view I steric five, the food delist, but it should not take 40 minutes for appetizers to arrive, and then an additional 35 minutes for the entrees. Only go when you are interested in sitting around and looking at the view. For a very. long. time."

  • "Me and my girlfriends had a great time at La Marina ! AMAZING view! Great vibes and just a cool scene overall. I thought the service was great, the managers would check on us from time to time and actually brought us 2 rounds of shots, on the house ! Everybody was super friendly and we loved the DJ! Me and my friends wanted to eat good, laugh, talk and dance....and we got it. We will return soon !"

  • "Great place to enjoy a nice meal and the awesome river views. If you're on a date no sure if you'd like to stay afterward in the bar area it's not so intimate, but they do have great music and hookahs (although they ran out of hookahs earl "b4" midnight on a Saturday night. Overall good food and good service."

  • "Great spot on the Hudson River! Our waitress was rude and when we asked to speak to a manager, he came over and told us she was one of the best waitresses they had and could not be rude, so it was our fault completely. She only got worse after that. Mind you we have been there about a dozen times, but never again!"

  • "Not an extensive menu, but really delicious food and drinks and outstanding views of the Hudson and G.W. Bridge. An outdoor party and concert was going on when I went with my date, but with reservations, we were shielded from the excitement outside, but could hear the music and revelers, which all added to the great ambiance. Not easy with the valet with so many cars, but it's convenient to the subway and the walk down Dyckman Street was a thrill - restaurant row all with vibrant outdoor seating and full of people on a Tuesday night. I would HIGHLY recommend a visit to La Marina for the food, service and thrill of a beautiful restaurant at the waterfront. Easy to forget you are in New York City - this is a gem spot that won't disappoint!"

  • "The ambiance is great, but that is about it. I have never sent back food in my life, until now. I ordered the Churrasco steak and what I got looked like a shriveled hot dog. Additionally, they forgot my friend's chimi churri sauce. We had to ask the waitress for it 3 times. I then asked the bus boy for it, and he brought it right away. Also, we got a pitcher of mimosas and it comes out to about 6 glasses in a pitcher for 45 dollars, but if you buy the mimosas individually, they are only 8 dollars each, not much of a value at all. Gratuity was included and our waitress could care less about our bad experience. Also management came by and I told him about our grievance and he just gave us a quick apology. Never going back."

  • "My boyfriend and I enjoy dining at La Marina each time we go. It is always a special occasion - even if it is just a Thursday night after work. This is a place we can envision getting married at one day. The staff is very friendly from the bartender while we were waiting for our table, to the hostess remembering us from a previous visit, to a wait staff that works seamlessly as a team, and to an incredible manager that makes all feel welcome. Thank you."
