    The Outdoor terrace is just on the Hudson River overlooking Tappan Zee Bridge. Great bar and foods! The dining rooms are big and good for big companies. Definitely recommend! Chilled Maine Lobster Salad was delicious!

    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 totally enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the restaurant. Even though it was raining outside, we were able to look out and see the water and the Tappan Zee Bridge. The waiter was exceptional and entertaining! The food presentation was beautiful. There were 12 of us and we didn't feel rushed and they let us sit there by the fireplace for as long as we wanted to. I would definitely go back again!

    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.

    I am always caustious when trying a new place. As soon as as we arrived, we were greeted with a smile and professional service. The food is great, freshly prepared, cooked to as order and was it tastey good. All of the deserts were out of this world. The Flan was etraordinarily good and I don't typically like flan!!! I ordered upon the advise of the server - and it was fantastic. The service was good and we were not rushed even though it was a holiday. They took their time and allowed us to take in the hudson river views. The tables and chairs were comfy and the indoor fireplace was a nice touch We are coming back this summer to enjoy the out door decking and marina setting.

    The view of the Hudson, paired with the excellent food - was amazing. Had appetizers to dessert, and enjoyed everything - great menu choices & specials. Enjoyed the octopus, fried calamari, & fondu - seafood pasta, steaks, and finished off with lava chocolate cake. It was a very filling and tasty night.

    This is a beautiful location--in good weather the deck is a perfect spot for friends and family. The menu offers some great choices--since I was there in early April, we chose from the winter menu. I had a tuna special, which was tasty and cooked to perfection. My friend had the pasta dish with shrimp; while it was very good, there were very few shrimp. In addition, our bottle of white wine was unfortunately not chilled. Since it was a chilly night, the band set up in the dining room, which can be very loud. However, in warmer weather it sets up outside. I still would recommend this restaurant.

    Had dinner using Groupon which was a terrific introduction for 4 of us to Pier 701 to try different dishes, both small dishes and main course. Our table enjoyed everything. Wine cost is reasonable and good. Very accommodating for gluten-free. Had to send back one entree since I forgot to ask for Dairy-Free too and they were very nice and open and removed cheese. T Had an awesome band that we danced to called "The Unit". Nice size dance floor. Would go back there again for dinner, especially to hear the band.

    Reservations were made for 6 for a Sunday night. Upon our arrival, there were at least ten young children running and screaming at the entry of the restaurant. There was a wedding party going on and the noise level was 10 out of 10. We were escorted to a small private room away from the ruckas but the noise level was still unacceptable. We were seated next to the door of room and the staff attempted, not always to keep it closed to diminish the volume of noise. Eventually we were moved to the back of that private room which somewhat ameliorated the noise level. The food was good, but I do have one complaint. Two people ordered the same dish, a seafood paella. One order had more scallops than the other. they should serve equally.
