    We went for lunch and figured we would try this new spot. The patio is beautiful and overlooks the Hudson River. Breathtaking. The food and service- not so much. They were out of everything we ordered - beers, wines , apps . We finally lucked out with fish over salad. The salad came drenched in dressing and the fish was overdone and flavorless. I will go back for drinks on the patio but will not ware my time or money on this overpriced diner fare.

    first time visit - very busy, took awhile to order food, then the ticket was lost and we waited a very long time for our entrees - appreciated that the waitress was honest in telling us why the delay. My lobster salad was not worth the wait or the cost. a few claw pieces, dressing was bland, not much variety or taste in the greens. the clam chowder was excellent. My dining companions enjoyed the calamari, oysters and short ribs. Wine served in plastic cups :( Screaming children next to us and while playing in the sand moved a rock into the middle of the walkway and a waitress tripped over it but did not fall. I would like to try this place again on another evening and see if the experience is a calmer, more delicious one!

    No better outdoor restaurant, weather permitting, to have brunch, lunch, or dinner. You could be anywhere in the world. Sitting out on the expansive deck, looking out onto the majestic Hudson River as the moon comes up, ducks and geese paddling in the water, along with sailboats. Food very good, service attentive but not hovering. One could sit there forever. This restaurant, in its many owners and iterations through years, used to be inferior in most every way you can name; now, they've finally gotten it right. The challenge now for the owners is to lure us regulars inside during the winter.

    The staff was first rate and very accommodating. The valets were friendly and responsive. The ambience has a subtle elegance and the outdoor seating was very good, a little crowded but it was a spectacular evening weather wise so you can understand that. The food was a little bland, a little small in portion, not hot enough and expensive.

    Happy that you have such a large awning which allowed us to enjoy our meal on the deck despite the rainy night. Each of the six of us had a different entree and all were very happy with our meals. Not the first time I've dined here and have had the same experience regardless of the number of people, time of day or day of the week. Well done!

    Very nice view but I think this place is one of those water view traps. Ordered drinks and my wife's white wine was like warm. My straight up Martini was so watered down it was actually funny. We decided to order some small plates instead of a full dinner feeling if they couldn't make a drink they cant cook either. I have to say the food was pretty good! Upon leaving I noticed the Valet likes to pick their friends cars first rather than the line that forms. When i questioned this practice I was given a face and no reply. If management paid more attention to this restaurant it could become a winner. I don't think I'll return though.

    The outdoor experience is undeniable and the views are incredible but the dining experience is below par and feels inexperienced. From the expensive drinks served in beer glasses to the cold food served to less than professional manager. Since it is the new outdoor place in town it will have a great 2014 summer season but the saying remains true that what goes up, must go down.

    It was so beautiful sitting on the water we were so happy with our choice till food arrived. Since the menu had a lot of fish options we ordered fish expecting great things. So sorry to say we were disappointed. It was my moms birthday so we wanted to make it special. Would not mind spending the extra money on nice place with good food but have had better food at local dinner for quarter the price.

    This is our third time here since the new owners and rebuilding the outdoors after "sandy". We kept on wanting it to work because it's so beautiful. Drinks are good and bar is fun. But reservation was an hour late seating us, service slow, and quality of food poor. Will not return for dinner only for drnks, dining elsewhere.

    Outdoor dining on the Hudson River with an unobstructed view of The Tappan Zee Bridge! Wonderful, but the experience was just getting started. Pier 701 has a great vibe. The crowd was having so much fun and the menu was terrific. The service was very accommodating and efficient. The views of the Hudson River, boats and "The Tap" got better as night fell over the scene. I love this restaurant and we will return to enjoy the live music that was just warming up when we were leaving.

    You go here JUST for the view. Nothing more. The food was good but average. Clearly there was a shortage of wait staff. My server was excellent but she couldn't and shouldn't handle all the tables she had. So if you want a breath taking view of the Hudson and TZ bridge, it's a must...and honestly there are no other places in Piermont for a view. Pier 701 has that as an advantage.

    It would have been just okay if I was not served swordfish that looked like it was cut on a mandolin! Have never been served such a terrible swordfish steak, even in the chain restaurants. I did not feel it was particularly fresh either so when the waitress asked how it was I told her. She said she would tell the manager. He never came to our table, although I did see him go to two other tables and take food back. The menu said swordfish with Israeli couscous (which I love) and a fruit salad. What I got was a sliver of swordfish, an arugula salad with one strawberry cut in half, and some couscous drizzled on top.......what nerve they had serving something that did not come close to what was anticipated. Anyway, would not ever go back.

    The food wasn't what I expected from a pricey menu, the soup wasn't that hot and served in a shallow bowl and the main course wasn't hot and for the price it looked like appetizer. The waiter looked like it was his first day. but the view and the drinks were worth it. Would I come back, maybe to try the lunch menu, but not for diner.n

    We had brunch here on Sunday and they were completely unprepared for thier 11:30am opening time. it was a little chaotic, perhaps because there was some sort of shower going on in one of the rooms, but still that seems crazy because they really have a ton of staff around the restaurant. Perhaps a visit from Robert Irvine or Gordon Ramsay to whip them into shape is in order..lol ..Once we were seated on the deck it was good - you can't really mess up an omlette or eggs for brunch..the view is fantastic, perhaps the best part of the venue.

    Had a lovely evening, as usual at Pier 701. The setting on the Hudson cannot be beat! A few minutes from home and I feel like I'm on vacation. Always great, cordial service. I ordered the skirt steak this time. Not great, a little tough. I will stick to the fish dishes which are always good. Here the food is secondary, it's all about that great view!
