    We had dinner here on Saturday night for the first time. The view and outdoor seating did not dissapoint. We got a table right on the edge which was PERFECT!! The service was poor. The drinks took forever to come, when the appetizers came, mine did not come out with the others. I waited 15 minutes and had to pull the waitress over, finally she brought it. Everyone at my table was done by then. My brother asked for a glass of water 5 times before it was brought to him. The main course took awhile as well. The food was tasty, however, my husbands pasta dish was a very small portion for a main dish. I will probably return because of the view and the food was ok.

    this is my new favorite restaurant, I cant say enough about it, the girls in the front and the hostesses were very polite, even thou they had many rude customers hounding them, apparently they had rented out part of the restaurant to BMW and the wait for a table took a little longer than normal. our waiter Michael was amazing he was so nice, always coming around and asking if we needed anything even thou the place was packed we felt like we were his only table. the food was amazing we had, oysters and octopus and mussels I could go on and on, all in all its a great place, so great we are going again tonight, we know whats good, I am Portuguese and hubby Egyptian we both love seafood and this is the place

    We were not satisfied with the food portions. My husband had linguine with clam sauce and 3 clams. This was a dinner portion. It was so small that we thought the waiter gave us a 1/2 portion. This is a dinner for $24.00. Ripoff. The mgr came over to our table and he said he would talk to the chef. Not a very diplomatic response when we expressed our dissatisfaction. He walked away. We won't go back.

    You must sit outside in nice weather. Sitting outside and having a drink is the best part of 701. The staff is unprofessional. The food average and unimaginative. Nothing special. Sitting inside is not worth it.

    The food was delicious. Usually you expect mediocre food, noting that you "pay for the view". Food was fantastic, with healthy, delicacies offered. Make reservations to specify water front table! Valet parking was a plus, the only downside was the horrible cup of cappuccino!

    Great view on the deck. After that, it was downhill. Service was very slow. We were near a table where children were allowed to run free and kept running into our table. We asked to be moved as kids wil be kids when they are not supervised. We were told once you are seated you cannot move. We could move, we left and will not be returning.

    When we initially arrived at the restaurant, the young, giggly, hostesses informed us that even though we had a reservation and the restaurant was not full. While some of the food was very good, the service was spotty even though we had a very nice waiter. The problem was that there was not enough wait staff to accommodate the number of diners and the wait staff was not well trained. For example, when the entrees were cleared, no one cleared the debris from the table prior to serving dessert. Without a professionally trained staff, the restaurant does not warrant the high prices of the food. We will not be returning any time soon.

    We were very impressed with the location. Sat out back by the river with phenomenal views. We waited ten minutes at our table and finally had to ask for a server. Service did not improve from there. Also, they were out of every dish we wanted. (4 total) and claimed to have never had the octopus entree that is on their open table menu. Order a mojito, it was so undrinkable we sent it back. Overall very disappointing.

    The location of this restaurant with outdoor seating by the river is gorgeous. It is unfortunate that the owner did not bring the chef from the original Harvest Restaurant. I had the surf and turf, the Lobster was a very small portion, the 3 medallions of filet were tasteless. My wife had Fettucine fra diablo that was too spicy for her to eat.

    I had a outdoor reservation for 7pm on Saturday, when I go there noone greeted us and had to wait for someone to help. They said it would be a 15 minute wait, after i expressed to them that I had a 7pm reservation? I was told that there are no outdoor reservations? I said that not was told to me on the phone, I specficically asked for outside and I was told no problem. Then, they said just check in with us in 10 minutes? Shouldnt they come to me since I did make reservations? The bar tenders and waiters were arguing lol while I was waiting for my reserved table at the bar? It really did get a little comical. Needs better service and processes in place. Great Food and view, so great job to the chef

    We went with a group of five women to celebrate a special occasion. There was initially confusion about the reservation with the hostess as to who had arrived and some were at the table and some were at the bar, but not a big issue. We ordered several appetizers, cocktails, main course and desserts. Food and service were all very good, we were all happy with our orders, although we thought the appetizers were too pricey. We also did have to ask several times though to close the doors to the outside patio as it was very cold in the restaurant. Large outdoor patio and bar right on the Hudson. Can't wait to go back when the weather is a little warmer for drinks and I hope the add some additional apps.

    We brought our entire family, including our son with autism, to a Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday. The staff was amazing - accommodating our request for a quiet table. In fact, they opened up a private room so that we could eat in comfort without disturbing anyone else. The food was pleasant, but it tasted even better given the kindness and consideration we were shown. Beautiful setting with amazing views of the Hudson River.

    We went with a party of four on a Saturday evening. The service was great: valet parking, very friendy waitor (Patrick) without being pushy and the view is just marvelous. Too bad the food is not at the same level: all of our dishes were (a bit below) okay, but not in line with the rest of the experience. If they would just improve the quality of the food (meat), then it will truly be a restaurant I would recommend to my friends. We will certainly be back, but probably just to enjoy the scenery with some drinks at the bar.

    We were really looking forward to dinner at this place. The location is amazing, but I hoped the food was also as good as its views. The food was average, especially based on the prices they charged. The service was also average, I would have expected better service at a place like this. If we do go back it will be for drinks at the Tiki-bar outside during the summer to enjoy the views of the Hudson river.

    We dined at Pier 701 this Saturday evening. We had a slightly bumpy start to our evening when we were plonked down at a table right next to an open door on a windy night with rain approaching. I turned around to ask to be reseated but the Maitre D had already run off. I had to track him down back at the front desk but on request the doors to the outside deck were closed and we got on with our dinner. The wait staff where friendly although our original waitress who took our drinks order then disappeared and a new one came and asked again for our drinks order. Once this service change was over things went smoothly. The food was above expectations with real finesse to dressings. I would have liked more vegetable side offerings! Great view...

    When I was looking for a half way point between NJ and NY, on what we called "This Side of the GW," it was a no-brainer to pick Pier 701. I have always loved the old light house, and on my way to the date, I forgot that with wearing heels, the gravel lot would be a problem. When I arrived I was pleasently surprised to see that not only have you guys paved the parking lot, but you had replaced the wooden broken ramp, with a new one. The waiter quickly accomidated me when I asked if I could sit on the deck, with a view of the water. Not only was the waiter informative of the menu, he suggested that I try my dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives!!! I will now forever request such a martini. FIVE STARS all around!!!

    We went with another couple to Pier 701 for dinner on Saturday night. The staff was very accommodating, and the view was wonderful. We each had a different entree and all enjoyed our dinners, the food was well prepared and nicely presented. A large party came in and sat near us which made it too loud, prior to their arrival, it was noisy but not obtrusively so. I look forward to returning to Pier 701.

    "I love the elegant but relaxed feel of this place – on a nice day I can spend the whole day on its outdoor patio sipping wine enjoying views of the Hudson. Delicious dishes very well prepared with great presentation and a bit of a french twist. I have not had a bad meal here. Very friendly service. It has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants. Try their Bloody Mary -- nice spice with an even better kick! Various dining events are available year around as well make it a fun place to go to.
