    Good food and location. Arrived early to have a drink outside and enjoy the view. It is very hard to get a drink outside. They are losing money by not doing a better job of this. Also, the drinking water needs to be filtered for taste.

    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...

    The view of Manhattan is fantastic especially in the evening with the setting sun on a beautiful summer night. Menu has a nice selection. Staff tries hard but needs a training to raise the overall dining experience. Ordered wine and they substituted a differnent selection without saying anything until we said something. Overall, the view compensates for a lot.

    We made reservations for July 4th to dine and see the fireworks. We were seated outside preferentially - only sushi and appetizers were served out here which was not ideal. It was VERY hectic and busy but we were in good company, food is always tasty, and service is always top tier!! Daniel was our server and realized the craziness of the day and did all he could to please! Our group was very happy!!

    We took my wife's sister (visiting from St Louis) here for dinner before the start of her business trip. The food was outstanding (oysters, sashimi, Mediterranean salad (shared big enough for three), fennel dusted sea scallops and two dinners from the appetizer section (seafood sampler and PEI mussels). The maitre'd sent over complementary light pasta dish (Pappardelle with Pork Bolognese) before the main courses. The seafood was fresh, well prepared and presented and delicious. Shared a dessert (blackberry and ricotta cheese crustada). Finished a bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc after starting with chilled Grey Goose for the ladies and State Park Old Fashion for me. Black sambucco to top it off. We love this restaurant!

    Located in Liberty State Park with direct views of New York City, and the Statue of Liberty the Liberty House restaurant is amazing. From their outside dining options to the beautiful interior this is a hidden gem. The service is top notch only followed by a delicious menu and starter of a selection of baked fresh bread. I highly recommend anytime you are nearby.

    This is my favorite eat out side restaurant. You can't beat the view of Manhattan from the garden. The wait staff are always well turned out and knowledgeable. I think the menu sometimes stretches the combination of food tastes too far - not all of the combinations are truly compatible but it's a fresh menu with a decent selection. One thing that was awful was the fish and chips (could have renamed it batter and chips). That's such a simple meal to make, it's a shame the chef hasn't taken the time to eat it! Deserts are great. It's a great space, super for events (my daughter has already decide that she's like her wedding there and she's no where near engaged!), and a great bar.

    Bad food & subpar service. I made reservations in advance, even took time to call the restaurant and explain/request seating with a view but was seated next to bar. Reception said she couldn't guarantee good table because they were filling up quickly. I may be way off base here but doesn't booking in advance mean you get first preference on preferred seating? The food was pricey and disappointingly bad. The only bright spot was our very polite waiter. I would never dine here again.
