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.
Thanksgiving dinner at Battery Gardens was amazing! The service was friendly and efficient. We were even greeted by the owner of the restaurant who was going table to table. Loved the atmosphere and the view of the Statue of Liberty was the perfect setting for Thanksgiving dinner but I would come here again in a heartbeat!
Beautiful location and decor but overpriced, bland food. Not really worth the cost.
Exceptional! Great service and food! We were also impressed with the setting for our wedding party
I have been coming to Battery Gardens (and its forbears) for a number of years. One thing I like is that I can lunch or dine alone there, enjoy the view, read and people watch. Tipping is the only problem I have with this establishment. It is never clear to me whether it has been added to the bill when it arrives. The whole topic of tipping is a huge one, particularly in New York. It would be good if Open Table could create a level playing field in this area.
Food good but sadly over cooked. Halibut and crab over cooked however steak and salmon were cooked to perfection!
Guter, schneller Service. Man kann im Garten sitzen. Essen sosolala.
Moved out to the outside terrace as restaurant closed for a private function. Lacked atmosphere a bit out there and also quiet dark, so much so that one lady took a fall. Clam chowder and lobster pasta was nice and a pretty nice view of the Hudson and Statue of Liberty lit up at dusk.
