    For a nice evening with fantastic view and good food this restaurant is great. A little disappointed by the lack of choice for the liquors, we had to change 3 times our choice of alcohol, but the meat was very tender and well cooked. A little too much wait to be served but we'll be back.

  • Disappointing 85th Birthday Dinner
    PatriciaR
    Dined on 11/9/2014
    I had attended a terrific event here recently , but when our party of 6 had dinner here it was a completely different story. We sat a table with a direct view of Manhattan - beautiful! However, we were pestered by cold wind from the vent above and the door. Our candle had so much turbulence that the wax was dripping onto the table. Our entrées took way too long (over an hour), the server acknowledged it but nothing happened and we continued to wait. When they finally did come, one item was cold & the lamb was rare (ordered medium). The whole time we waited, no one brought any more bread and no one came to apologize. The waitress was unfamiliar with some of the items on the menu. Better to go for a drink and spend your money elsewhere.

    We enjoyed the food and the view. The service was very good even though they were very busy that night. We had the lamb and the steak cook to perfection. Portion are comfortable and well priced. Good location for a nice evening with friends. The backyard with the fire pits is a great place to enjoy the view.

    The music from the upstairs was so loud you couldn't hear anything in the resturant. The wait staff was horrible starting from the hostes to the waiters. The menu has great choices and pairings, but the overall execution from the kitchen makes you think you were at Applebee's. The view is great that's about it. We would never come back or recommend it to anyone

    Very beautiful restaurant with awesome view of NYC especially when we went (1930hrs). I made reservations almost a month in advance for two and when we arrived, we were given two options of seating. A table for two directly in the middle of the room and next to main traffic area or outside (in the upper 50s). We were not pleased with these options, especially when trying to spend a romantic dinner together. We were finally seated next to the rear entrance where traffic in and out was constant as was a cold breezes from outside. Over all, we had a great time with each others company but would more than likely not return.

    We had an 8:30 dinner reservation and arrived about 20 minutes early, so we decided to have a drink at the bar. After about 15 minutes past out reservation time, I inquired to the staff as to when our table would be available. Both ladies had no positive answer or clue on how to deal with the situation. So waited longer. At 9:00 again no news as to being sat. No offer on buying us a cocktail or appetizer. Eventually we were sat and enjoyed our meal. Wouldn't not come back but would try to make an early reservation.

    What a fantastic view ! The staff is very attentive and professional. The food is very good and interesting. The day we ate at Liberty House they had a chateaubriand special that was fantastic. You have your take your special someone there for brunch, lunch or dinner and then take a stroll along the water and watch the Manhattan side gleam with its beauty. A great place !!

    We went after visiting Statue of Liberty. Staff were very friendly. Service was however Very slow and it was not crowded. There is no kids menu but they were able to produce Mac & Cheese but this can in a very hot cast iron skillet- not safe for small children. Adults ordered fish and chips where there was barely any evidence of fish just huge abouts of batter. There were large amount of French fries but these were soggy. There are very few options if you need to eat around there but I would certainly not recommend going out of my way until food is improved

    Liberty House is one of those 'hidden gems' that the Jerseysiders are very lucky to have in their own back yard! Stunning views across to Manhattan day and night, however sunset is a divine experience. We're visiting from Australia, and after eating out at Michelin star restaurants in Manhattan, it was at Liberty we were really able to relax, enjoy and not feel rushed. Food was wonderful and I highly recommend this place. We'd love to return one day!

    early & were told not open, go to bar/walk around & you will be called, asked where to be seated, outside. Walked around, came back, people being seated, no one called for us. Went to desk, where do you want to be seated, again. We get seated, waiter asks for beverages, asked for a Champagne Cocktail, he did not know what I was talking about, asked what was in it, go ask the bartender, so settled for Bellini. Apps good/no question, pork chop was delicious /short ribs were great, paella was horrible,& one ordered vegetable roll, no soy sauce came with it, even though the dish for it was. Even though, when making res., told them it was my birthday, my husband had to get up & ask for candle/sing with dessert, they did for next table not me

    This place is fabulous! The killer view of Manhattan coupled with the ever so tasty food and the top of the line service made a Sunday brunch the best ever. Try the Mediterranean salad for starters and any entree to follow. Everything we ate and shared was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious as we sat outdoors and marveled at the grandeur of the newly rebuilt World Trade Center. The drinks are to die for especially the Champagne Sangria...YUM!

    Take the water taxi into lower Manhattan for the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and then have dinner at the Liberty House. Perfect way to end the day, plus they validate your parking!-- Love that they have half portions of pasta. -- JA little noisy, but that adds to energy level. They had a band playing outside which was great.

    I chose this restaurant because the pictures online looked appropriate for the client lunch I was booking. I drove the client and as we approached the location you could see just how unique and special the location and view were out of this world. After living and working in NYC for 28 years, I can honestly say this was a hidden treasure in a part of town I did not know existed. The food and service were very good but, I came off as a superstar due to the location, amazing for weddings and corporate events however so off the beaten track just knowing this exists is special enough.

    I've been to the Liberty House a few times....food and drinks have gone down hill.....last time I was there in June, we sent back a large portion of the food for various reasons, this time, I kept it, but wasn't happy. Nothing exceptional, very average at way above average pricing. Even the "specialty" summer watermelon drink, which sound great on paper, did not come close to being a great summer drink... If not for the view, I would not go at all....Summer is almost over, and I will wait until next year to see if they have improved...
