    Only place around with Saturday lunch on the water this side of Hudson. Good choices on menu. Staff was good except hostess was a bit stuffy. Valet parking only seems a bit silly but it is a small lot.

    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.

    This reataurant needed to be remodeled years ago. It is so seedy looking. The food was just average at best but the atmosphere was so lacking and everything looked so awful that it was probably one of the worst looking places in which I have ever eaten.

    I had been a frequent flyer this restaurant before Sandy and had not returned until this past week. I was very disapointed with the post sandy results. I described it to a friend as a finished basement and also the waiter did not listen to what was asked and instead went with is personal recommendations. All around not good

    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.

    We made a reservation then were told that there were no reservations for outside. The hostesses for inside and outside didn't coordinate, so we had to go back and forth. The waiter was indifferent, no choice of wine by the glass, food okay but nothing special. Very loud.

    It is unfortunate that the owner of Sunset Cove skimps on the level of wait service at this wonderfully located restaurant. We were there this past Saturday for lunch (July 19, 2014) and ate outside overlooking the Tappan Zee Bridge. The outside was completely packed. Service was very slow and not very welcoming. We attribute this to the wait staff being overworked as there were only 3 waiters for the entire crowd. Not enough for sure. I would go back however I would warn my guests that the food is quite good, the ambience terrific, but not to expect great service. Sorry! :( I hope this is helpful and that the owner will consider hiring more waiters/waitresses.

    When it's my pick for Ladies Night, there can be no finer words at the end of the meal than, "Great choice, Nance!" Went for view and outdoor seating. Came away loving the food, too! Definitely a win-win. Glad we made the final choice to sit outside (you cannot reserve outdoor tables, but can request when you get there.) Indoor ambience is quite stark...outdoors is definitely the way to go. We lucked out on an evening that was not too hot or humid, really quite perfect. Will absolutely return!!

    Since there was a wait to sit outside, we sat inside but the staff was very nice & friendly and offered us the option of sitting outside sipping our cocktails while we waited for dinner to be ready. Every meal was very good, scallops, salmon (but risotto was a bit over powering w salmon), seafood & steak cooked perfectly. And our server was friendly & courteous also. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Interesting locale on the water with great view of the sunset. We ate indoors but the patio looked nice. The wine list was limited but there were interesting choices on the menu. However we drew a poor waiter and/or a bad night. One guest was served club soda instead of tonic water, a salad wasn't evenly divided, and the kitchen used regular instead of whole wheat pasta (a menu option). The waiter did not keep us informed--we would have taken the regular pasta if asked--and no one was served for over an hour. The amount of whole wheat pasta swamped the rest of the dish and one of the servings had almost none of the vegetables. The manager was unsympathetic and the waiter unapologetic. We've never left such a small tip--10%.

    My wife and I had a nice lunch at sunset Cove on a Saturday early afternoon on our way to Connecticut. Oysters on the half shell to start okay not spectacular. Salads we had were both very good and the service was excellent. Made a reservation on open table and we were a little early but got in with no problem. But was very busy and the parking is extremely busy. It is a valley parking only. However we saw another couple walking through an open fence door and we parked there. For the ballfield right next-door. Apparently lots of people were doing that too. All in all a nice lunch experience wish they had more free parking but it worked out with the ballfield parking next-door.

    Setting is lovely. It's perfect for a warm summer evening. Tables are spaced far enough apart to facilitate conversation. Food was good. I would have enjoyed more seasoning of the fish choices. They were well prepared but bland. Service was excellent. I would certainly return.
