    Went here for lunch. One order of scallops and risotto, two orders of butternut squash ravioli. The scallops were quite large and delicious accompanied by a flavorful risotto. The ravioli was a generous portion with wonderful flavors (pumpkin, figs, etc). The service was responsive, prompt, and friendly. The view of the Tappan Zee bridge and Hudson was marvelous.

    Was disappointed we got there at !0 minutes before our reservation and we were told we had to wait in the bar" because they were not open yet" we went into the bar and posted on the bar was a sign stating "cash only" this in a tourist town!! also a very bad smell present in the dining room which then went away . on top of this the place charged New York prices . For a group of four one of which ordered two sides as her main dish we payed 150.00 . Then we were told the menu had changed and that what we planed on having was no longer on the menu . Overall a very bad dining experience had we not been hungry we would have left .

    The restaurant had a pretty nice vibe. The food was good and the service was great. They were very attentive. It's great for parties. It was too cold to be outside but I'm sure it would be nice to sit outside and watch the sunset and Hudson river.

    The indoor views are good, but the outdoor views up, down and across the Hudson are spectacular. If dining inside, take a couple of walks on the patio to enjoy seeing history being built. And the food, an afterthought for us, was surprisingly varied and interesting and quite good. The service was pleasant, and very minor problem was handled perfectly. 7 very happy guests. This does not appear to be a kids or family place, but they treated our kids very well. It can get just a bit noisy against the window, but that's where the view is.

    We booked this restaurant because of how much they played up the views of the Hudson. Well, we had our reservation for 3 weeks and instead of getting a table to view the Hudson we got shoved in the back next to the bar. While walk ins were seated in much better seats. I would also recommend coming here in the day time. If you go here in the night time you will not get the scenic views it describes. Besides that situation the food was great I had the hanger steak and spinach it was amazing! My friend had the penne ala vodka and she absolutely loves it!

    TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! Mediocre food. From the moment we pulled into the parking lot when the parking attendant yelled at us to move our cars because it was valet parking.. (there were clearly parking spots available to park on our own). It all went down hill from there!! When we said we were going to write a letter, he responded with F--- Y-- . We were greeted by the most unfriendly of hostesses-not a smile to be seen. The lobster roll was so salty it was not edible. We sent it back and not one person from management even came to our table to apologize or see if we wanted something else. We ordered pasta from the "childrens menu" for our 5 year old, it was a basic bowl of butter drenched pasta and we were charged $10.00!

    The food was good and the service was excellent. Since I can't eat a full first course I would have preferred some vegetables with my main course, but they aren't included. The sound level was lower in this restaurant than in many others, which is a blessing when you don't hear well, but enjoy conversing with others at your table.

    We went to Sunset Cove for Sunday brunch on my birthday based on it having some good reviews online as well as outdoor seating. The view was nice but not nearly as nice as people make it sound. The chain link fence around the deck doesn't help things either. The brunch spread was pretty sad. The pancake/omelet station was decent and I had a pretty good bagel with lox but the eggs benny were terrible and it seems like they were running out of food and not replacing things as many of the trays were empty. There were a bunch of wasps aggressively buzzing around our table and in our food that we couldn't get rid of and the staff didn't seem to notice or care. It was a very disappointing birthday outing, I won't be coming back.

    The view and setting was very nice. Our table was right on the water, but I had to level it with my napkin. Our server was some kind of special, she never smiled, never said thank you, never asked how we were doing, and didn't even look at us when talking. It was pretty clear that she would have rather been doing anything other than serving anybody, anything. The bread was stale, and my steak was ordered medium, but should have come in a bag that said Oberto. Cutting through the steak required a saw zaw and a pitch fork. My wife had to hold the table every time i tried to cut through it. The drinks we good though!

    They seem to be saying "You got a great view and that's all you get". Food is reminiscent of a high school cafeteria. Service is rushed and indifferent. Prices are laughable considering the quality. Cocktails are served in the smallest glass I have ever seen in a restaurant for an exorbitant price. I will never go back to this rip off joint.

    We loved our dinner and the view of the Hudson. Everything was lovely outside—even the fact that a rainstorm occurred just as we were paying the check. The interior of the restaurant isn't as gorgeous or welcoming. I suggest ambient lighting to make the inside of the restaurant as attractive as the river.

    Food was good as was outdoor dining but service left much to be desired. From the start we felt we were being rushed. Waiter was impatient and wanted our order right away. I said the mussels sounded good but my fried needed more time to decide. The waiter brought my appetizer before taking my friends order. Then he took our entre order and brought it out before we were finished with the appetizer so the entre got cold. It was a Monday night and not overly crowded but we felt like they wanted to get rid of us. Wanted the desert order while we were still eating. This was a business dinner and the last thing you want is to be rushed. I could see if there was a line waiting for the table but there was not.

    I recently had dinner at Sunset Cove with a few of my girlfriends and it was a wonderful evening. Since reservations can not be made for outside dining, we requested to sit outside when we got there and it wasn't a problem at all. The view was beautiful, the wait staff was attentive and food was really delicious. All the girls were very pleased with their meals. I had ordered the Veal Portofino but asked if they could make it with chicken instead and it wasn't a problem. It was absolutely delicious. The only negative about my food was when I got home I realized that they handed me my girlfriend's leftovers instead. I was a bit bummed because I was looking forward to a second serving of my Chicken Portofino. Will def be going back.
