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.

  • "View was amazing, food was good,service was excellent..great find! Would defiently go back!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."

  • "On a beautiful evening there is no place like LaMarina - the space and the view over the Hudson is spectacular and that is the draw! We had to flag down a cocktail waitress on the deck - the wine is overpriced and gratuity added even for a party of 2! Dinner was similar - eating outside watching the sunset is breathtaking and the reason to be there - the food is good, not great but the service is awful. We finally asked to maitre d for assistance and he took out order himself which helped. The mandatory addition of a gratuity even for small parties is annoying- however we will still go back on a lovely evening- love the setting!"

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC! The atmosphere especially on the week days is so relaxing. You feel as if you've stepped out of the jungle and into paradise."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I have dined at La Marina on multiple occasions and have never had an experience like this. The waiteress was inattentive and the service was deplorable. My group had to wait over an hour for our food and a few of the orders came out cold. We had to get the manager for assistance. He was apologetic and provided us with complimentary drinks. Even at that point, the waiteress tried to put blame on everything but herself. I will visit this place again because I love the ambience and will not let one bad visit ruin my otherwise previous enjoyable visits."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The view is breath taking. The place is huge. The waiters/servers were very polite. I had the lobster roll/sandwich. It was tasty but smaller than I expected. The American coffee was weak, so try the cafe con leche. The salmon was missing from eggs and salmon entree which was disappointing. Others at the table had the coquette also tasty but not as spicy as stated on the menu. FYI they won't seat you if your entire party isn't there despite their being several tables available. As in we were the first to show up, so there were only 3 groups of ppl seated."

  • "Dined here for a friends birthday and had a great time. The food was wonderful and the service was quick and friendly. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "What I didn't like was that they charged u to to cut your own cake and 3$ a person that is unfair"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. The view was terrific and appropriate no matter the occasion. The service was also very good with good attending skills. The food was okay, the grilled fish lacked bold flavors. The sangria quality was fine, but was a little too bitter for my taste. Overall, we would return simply because of its location and service."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I got the chicken presidente very nasty and they need a larger menu"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Unfortunately, this time around service wasn't great. I decided to take a friend there for her birthday (on a Wednesday) since my first experience (on a Saturday) was great. Sadly, we were rushed because the kitchen was closing and the food wasn't fully cooked. I ordered a Mango Daiquiri (great drink) which toppled over after 2 sips. The waiter was nice enough to request the same drink at no cost but the manager denied. Overall, is a nice place and the scenery is awesome. I recommend this place for weekend late night outings but only evening outings during the week."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I came here with an old friend for dinner. The food was delicious and the views, albeit, spectacular. However, I was a little taken aback by having my purse checked by security before entering the restaurant for an early dinner on a week day. In addition, though we were a party of two, the waitress added her gratuity to my credit card. I would have preferred she informed me before doing so."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Beautiful atmosphere, scenic river view. Food was also very good. The only thing this restaurant is lacking is good service. From the beginning it was one thing after another. Clearly the servers have not been trained on how to address issues such as clearing the table of extra plates/glasses/silver. When asked a question about the food or such we were give a one word reply - yes or no. When asked about a certain dessert we were told not to order it because no one likes it! How did server know I wouldn't like it? If we were asked once we were asked 20 times, "How is your food?" Asking once is sufficient. However, even with bad service I would go back again! Atmosphere & food are just too good not to pass up."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Our reservation just so happen to be on the day of the world cup final. The usual quiet and eloquent La Marina was transformed into a loud, crowded sports bar. The usual dinner menu was swapped for a bare-bones bar food menu consisting of appetizers and a burger. After missing our initial sit-down time we waited for a later sitting. Service was slow and somewhat disheveled. Waiters seemed to cater more to the swaying sports crowd than the guests seated. Drinks never arrived until almost 20 mins after ordered. The food took even longer. This was all unfortunate because past experiences at this place we're actually quite pleasant. I would in fact recommend La Marina but just make sure there's no sporting event going on."

  • "My experience at La Marina was fantastic. The service was great, the view was phenomenal, & last but not least I'll be in La Marina all summer (lol)"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The portion of the food wasn't as much as I thought it would be. The tres de leche came out 40 minutes after I ordered it, and it wasn't what I expected it to be. In the menu the price was lower than what they actually charged me. The view was good. If your a fan of scenery you will like it,"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great view, perfect for a date or hanging with some friends."

  • "Food was much better before. Service has always been terrible but at least it was not as expensive before. This year prices are ridic"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Scenic view makes up for lack of much else. Jambalaya was surprisingly good, although the waitress didn't seem to have a clue what was going on."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We had a group of 5. The food was good but not something to write home about. We enjoyed our dinner and sat and talked for about 2 hours and never felt rushed to leave so they could have the table. I live in Staten Island and I don't think it was worth the trip way out there but I can see that it is a wonderful venue for people closer to the area."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Find out if there's live music or a DJ for the night. I went on Wednesday when a Salsa band was playing (excellent vibe). The view of the water, sunset and GO bridge were amazing. Great service. Food was good."

  • "Went Tuesday, 7/8/14, for a 7 pm reserve for my hubby's bday.We were a party of 5. Wasn't crowded at all,beautiful picturesque scene,nice decor/ambiance,great weather to go along with it. Staff was friendly;even the manager came over to say hello and make sure we were ok. All of our food picks were DELICIOUS.The Sangria was on point. Overall we had GREAT TIME. I'll defiinitely be going back most likely on a weekday again or early brunch. I can see why this venue is so popular and can become ridiculously packed on a weekend,which i would imagine would affect the service and possibly the food.i'd say the key is reserve early,go early and/or pick an off-day during the week.Cheers and good luck on your visit!"

  • "I waited all winter to enjoy a nice summer evening dinner at La Marina. The drinks at the bar were very good (very friendly bartenders)! We ate dinner outside to enjoy the water front views of the Hudson. Our server was not that great. He didn't know what an Arnold Palmer was and was very slow in getting us our appetizers. Food delivery took awhile and it was not crowded that the weekday evening we went for dinner. Food was good, but I truly expected more from the chefs (pass on the chicken lollipops!!!)"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "What a wonderful place to have in the neighborhood! We go for our birthdays and always enjoy the view and food. Service is attentive and it is enjoyable. To sit and have cocktails before dinner. Everything is nicely presented, but be aware the tip is already on the check."

  • "The rudest service I have *ever* encountered. Made a reservation online days in advance. On the day of the reservation, a hostess called to confirm my party would be coming and I confirmed that we would. We arrived exactly on time for the reservation to be told that although the rest of the property was open and serving guests, the restaurant was closed. When I told a manager that I had confirmed my reservation a few hours ago, he brusquely told me that they didn't take reservations on Sundays and never have. What??? We were then told that the restaurant may open in an hour. When it opened, the menu was only hot dogs and hamburgers. Worse: The next day I rec'd an email from the restaurant via Open Table accusing me of being a no-show!"

  • "Service was horrible. Waited over 1 hour and 15 minutes for our order which never came (party of 2). Always had to ask for an update from wait staff. We saw other parties come in after us and be served. What a waste of a great physical location by the management."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I love the view and ambiance of this restaurant. I dining here felt like I was in another country it felt very tropical and refreshing very different from other dining spots in New York. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend."

  • "We were drawn to this place because it's in a great location right on the Hudson River with a beautiful view of the GW Bridge. It's got great indoor and outdoor seating. But that's about it. We went for brunch and the food was overpriced and the portions were incredibly small. We were in a group of 10 and no one had anything memorable (think basic all-inclusive resort level quality). Two people at our table waited over an hour for their food (the waiter was nowhere to be found) and when it came it was missing items. Their card system went down and they blamed it on our card until five people at the table tried and they finally realized it was their system and told us to go use the $3 ATM on site. I will never trek to this restaurant again."

  • "The Marina was familiar to us so we brought out of town family. The service was lacking to the point another server noticed and took over. The food was good especially the BBQ sauce on the ribs, and the ribs were great. We would go back but more prepared for the very lively bar scene."

  • "Not sure about La Marina first 20 valet parking. no other parking price was very high. We asked for Mia Tia not sure what drink was. But it was not near Mia Tia. Hey would not remake drink and we still had to pay $14.00 for the wrong drink. We asked for fries they brought mashed sweet potatoes. Did trade them either. so much more to say. but not impressed."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Our server was great, however the food ... not so much! The food was cold and didn't taste very fresh. One dish was sent back, while another had about 2 bites taken and they still wanted to charge us for everything which was disappointing. After almost arguing with the manager, they removed 2 dishes from our bill. They sent over a round of free shots after we complained about the food, which was appreciated, however not necessary. Not sure I would return for dinning again, however maybe for drinks or something like that."

Uou can sit outside and enjoy the view while you eat/drink. beautiful view when the sunsets. Staff were super attentive and friendly. I just hope it doesn't attract the wrong crowd and lose its elegant appeal. Great place for a date as well."
