    Service was lack luster. But food and ambiance was good. I anticipated it to be a little more upscale however it was casual. I also figured that since I made a reservation through open table I would have received a good server. However I reviewed a new staff member with little to no knowledge of the menu. Overall though it was good

    We came here when it was the Lighthouse. We love the improvements. Wonderful outdoor riverfront dining. The specialty drinks were fantastic. Muscles and cheese fondue apps were delicious. The halibut and salmon dishes were generous and tasty. A couple of ladies ordered the pasta special with chorizo. It was a bit too spicy but still good. The staff was very attentive and friendly. I would definitely come back.

    I live in the area and come to the restaurant often with friends and family. The only disappointment I regularly experience is the uptight unfriendly staff. With the exception of 1 or maybe even 2 waiters the majority are not friendly and seem to be angry. I have never seen a happy hostess. If it wasn't for the view I would not come back.

    A friend and I met at Pier 701 for lunch on a hot and humid Tuesday, the first week in September It was just the perfect place for the day, it was hot and humid, sunny and we had a wonderful luch. The food was very good for the day and weather--watermelon salad!! Will be back again! Maybe for dinner.

    Great view of the river and great location. Very pretty. But the food is lackluster, and although our waitress was very sweet, overall the service there is terrible. They have untrained kids working the door and they don't even know how to offer a proper greeting , a farewell or a thank you. The bartender takes forever to make a drink and my first Bloody Mary was completely watered down with a pound of ice. I told the waitress who did get the bar to produce a better second drink . In my opinion I should not have been charged for the first. But again that comed back to training the staff in customer service. At the moment so I can only recommend this place for the view

    The view was outstanding and the food on the whole quite good. I found the service lacking. The waitress forgot a number of items, paid no regular visits to the table, and another employee came around our table to give loud instructions to workers at a table on another level of the deck. The professionalism of the wait staff needs great improvement. With that the food and location of Pier 701 will serve it well.

    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.
