We booked a reservation on OpenTable for Battery Gardens to celebrate my mom's birthday. We arrived a few minutes early only to find out that they are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. No one ever informed us of this. What is ironic is that I am still being asked how my experience was.
TThe location on the harbor with the Statue of and ample natural sky light make it certain we will come back often and recommend it to others. The tables are set with linens and are widely spaced for good sense of privacy while dining. Sound level at our visit was very well suited to conversation. Wait staff is responsive and the menu offers imaginative choices. Our cocktails and wine were excellent. The food is well prepared as ordered and arrived to table timely. Our only request is to offer diners a choice of branded bottles of water for the table.

BEAUTIFUL setting, beautiful room, excellent service, SCRUMPTIOUS meal!! can't wait to go back!
Great views. Couldn't buy good service if we tried. Food was above average, youre paying for the view. Would go again but with hopes service was better.
one of our favorites. salmon, pizza and steak are top notch. the cheesecake is awesome
Amazing food and the view of Liberty Island was the icing on top! Delicious food, dessert and sangria💜 Our waiter was just attentive enough without being over bearing too! Loved this meal. Will definitely come next time we are in New York.
I hope this restaurant benefits from a very low rent. It occupies a perfect spot on the waterfront with a wonderful view of the Statue of Liberty and is great for people- and harbor-watching. The food is excellent and the service above par. The problem is that there is a large two story exhaust funnel right in the middle of the property. Its apparent purpose is to let out exhaust fumes and overheated air from the subways below. The noise the fans make spoils almost everything. The large industrial fans are hard to ignore, much as one might try, making an otherwise marvelous experience more like eating on a factory floor with the machinery all abuzz. Very disappointing, as a result of the noise caused by the fans.
There is no other place like this if you want delicious food and an outdoor venue literally overlooking New York harbor.
The food is quite good, mussels and shrimp cocktails are great!
If it's a nice evening, sit outside, you won't be disappointed!
Nice place, good service but a little slow, good food but not outstanding/a bit overpriced for what you get.
The restaurant is excellent but open tables part was seriously lacking. When we arrived there was a corporate event going on in the dining room and we hadn’t been notified. They were going to seat is outside, it was 65 degrees, grey, breezy and the daylight was fading so not really comfortable for outside fine dining. We left.
It was rainy and there was a private event in the restaurant. But this meant that there were way too many bugs that kept initially falling on our food until they eventually lit us a candle and brought some vinegar to keep bugs off. Wish we were warned beforehand when we made our reservation.
The water views are great but the food is very mediocre.
My go-to spot for outdoor dining in lower Manhattan. Amazing views, good food. A little off the beaten path, but that is part of the charm. Hard to understand why lunchtime is not more crowded.
We went for lunch after our wedding at City Hall. The service and staff were great, and the room was bright and cheerful in the mid afternoon. It was a perfect stop on a special day.
The view is obviously the main attraction here, and overall the place is very pleasant and well decorated. But the food was really disappointing. I would not go back.
Everything is excellent!!! The service, the food, the setting and the drinks were all exceptional!!!
Food is okay, but the big draw is really being outside for the view. Came here on a Saturday afternoon and we were able to sit outside for hours enjoying our adult beverages. The food was decent enough to fill our bellies.
I walked all the way there, and it was closed!
Food was good. We were 2 people who ordered 2 main meals accompanied by 2 glasses of wine. They included service charge over 20% before even calculating taxes. I do not see any reason to include automatically service charge without informing us about this practice. Price of this dinner was too high.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here -- sitting outside on the waterfront, with attentive service and lovely food.
We weren't told there would be a wedding there and we were put out on a metal table with the wedding party nearly on top of us- not a great experience for what we were expecting.
The food was good. Loved the view. The service was slower than we would have liked.
It was very nice
Enjoyed our superb lunch on their outdoor patio overlooking the Hudson. Perfect food and service!
We sat out on the patio which was good with 2 toddlers. The food was good but expensive. The wait staff was friendly but it took WAY TOO LONG for our food to be served.
In a sunny summer day, it was very relaxing sitting outside the porch and enjoying the river view.
The food was good and at reasonable price.
After dinner, it was good exercise walking along Battery park .
It was a beautiful night in NYC. Would highly recommend the prix fixed dinner. On the water and seeing all the activity in the harbor was fantastic.
Every time I go. Amazing service. Wonderful food. Beautiful view. A must see in NYC!
Waiter was not attentive at all
Service was great! Food was delicious. It was a perfect night outside and a very romantic evening.
Misleading bill. Imposed gratuity of 20% as service fee on the check and yet the level of service doesn’t warrant the imposed fee. Check also has tip line which could be misleading for customers to double pay on the tip. Seafood dishes were not fresh. Would not recommend.
Very pleased with experience. The food was excellent. Clients were extremely pleased. The view is terrific!
First time here even though I’ve lived in BPC for 32 years. Will definitely go back
Had my Sons wedding one year ago, which was fabulous at Battery Gardens. To celebrate we went Mother’s Day. It is just beautiful and the food was delicious. It’s a little bit of of beauty in Manhattan overlooking the Hudson.
The food here is just ok. It’s extremely overpriced because it’s in a tourist area and the views are to die for. Service is very basic also. And no frills if you’re dining outside. They couldn’t bother to cover the rusty tables with a tablecloth even when charging $32 for an ok entré. Go for the views, sit outside and order drinks and maybe some apps.
Very pleasant restaurant with a fabulous one-of-a-kind view. Great for out-of-town guests. Great outdoor seating. Nothing like it anywhere. Includes an outdoor bar for drinks only.
The view of NY harbor are the best both indoors and out. The seasonal specials are creative and quite good. It is a little off the beaten path but once you find it you'll be going back
One irritating point was that they charged 20% "service" and then put a "tip" line in addition to the credit card slip. And service was not that exceptional to deserve 20% top to begin with.
