Went for anniversary. All tables have good view of the water and also is a great way to eat "outdoors" without actually being outside. Food was better than expected with exception of the Halibut which was cooked through (beet salad was a standout). Wine is over priced but assumed it would be given location. Service was also good but clearly they are a bit understaffed. I've lived in NYC for 30+ years and never dined here (just had drinks) but I'm glad I did.
Our table was not the best (right next to table of 20!) so I will know next time to ask
Visiting NYC with my daughter !
The Boathouse is outstanding from beginning to end! Had lunch reservations at noon and got a table by the water. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. I hope I get the chance to go back again when I am in nyc!
Have always wanted to dine here! Had a fabulous meal. Mohammed was an excellent server!
Atmosphere was exceptional. Food outstanding. The wait staff could have been a little more attentive and friendly . It certainly was a dining experience for us . I can understand why so many tourists would pick this restaurant .
With a 3:30 res. We were very rushed. The kitchen was closing shortly after we were seated. The Niçoise salads were meh, they had been prepared sometime hours earlier.
Just like in all the movies. Enjoy a delicious meal with an amazing view.
Amanda our waitress really enhanced the great experience we had at our lunch! Service and her knowledge of the menu was exceptional!
Another great experience at an iconic New York location. Service, food, wine and the dessert were amazing!
We celebrated our anniversary & it was wonderful
Hermoso lugar! Muy amables! Todo bien
Great place, the view was wonderful. And our waiter, and the gentleman that worked the bread service were awesome.
Fantastic venue- enjoyed our lakeside table with wonderful view, attentive staff and delicious food. Truly a quintessential NYC/Central Park experience. Thx so much!
The service was impeccable and the food was amazing! Definitely make a reservation so you can sit close to the water. Highly recommend!
Beautiful location in the center of the park with great view. The food was very good and great service.
The food is excellent. Making reservations was very easy via Open Table. The wait staff seemed harried. Our waiter attributed it to the day after the US Open finished and there were still many people asking for lunch places. Our waiter was excellent when we asked for recommendations. He was spot on. He just had too many tables/people to attend to.
Delicious lunch. Service was excellent and the views were perfect.
We love the setting of this lovely restaurant. Our service is always good and very friendly. We have never been disappointed with the food.
Had an incredible birthday here! Loved the service, ambience, and food! I was very impressed :)
The setting is enchanting and the food is now very good. Years ago, it was not. So, the restaurant has really come along. The waiters are also very attentive. A delightful experience, always.
We brought our guests from California and enjoyed a wonderful lunch on a glorious day. She is vegan and your lunch selection was very well received and enjoyed.
I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant! It’s been on my bucket list since I was a kid and saw it in one of my favorite movies 27 dresses! I wish I could remember the name of our server- he was so amazing! The atmosphere was great and the food was even better! Everyone there was so helpful and even provided more reccomendatikns for our trip!
Excellent restaurant with beautiful setting, delicious food & cocktails, and great service.
After doing this location in movies, I’ve always wanted to have a meal there. I was able to finally do so. Very delicious food and beverages! What an amazing experience it was!
It was truly a great dining experience - from the service to the location and the food .. all first rate. I cannot recommend it enough!!
Beautiful venue, efficient and friendly service, food was fresh and well prepared, a wonderful experience.
I made a reservation hoping that the review I read was accurate. It was modest compared to our experience.
The day was drizzly but we had walked through the park to get there, hungry, tired and damp. We were warmly greeted (even with required Covid restrictions) the table by the water was great and the food was delicious, generous portions for a fair price of a restaurant of that caliber. To top it off our server Amanda was fabulous! Her recommendations were spot on but her care for us went beyond “service”.
Taking several pictures of us until she was happy with the lighting and background. Some of our best. Then giving directions by walking with us out of the restaurant to point out the walking route she was mentioning.
Thanks Amanda and to the Boathouse for a truly memorable experience.

We were simply amazed at the excellent service we received as first timers with no ideas what the experience, food, or service would entail. We absolutely loved it. Quaint, great food quality and exceptional service from hostess to our server Amanda. She made our day with pic's by the railing and went above and beyond. Not to be missed.
What a beautiful setting to enjoy a delicious meal with family. The staff were professional and friendly too. Would definitely recommend!
Great meal in an exceptionally beautiful setting. Would return there to eat again.
Best staff and food ever!!!! Would recommend this to anyone and everyone!!!
Fantastic! Get the scallops and be sure to sit by the water.
Great to celebrate my birthday.
Food and drink was great! Our waiter was attentive and made great suggestions based on the menu. Ambiance was perfect! Will definitely go back!!
A friends 60th birthday. It was just 2 of us and I did not mention the occasion to the staff but at the end of our lunch our waiter, Angel came over with cake with a candle. He must have overheard me toast her. It was a lovely surprise that she loved.
If you arrive there early, you can get a nice table just next to the lake. The view is stunning.
Ambiance and food were amazing, service was great, and they even surprised me with a birthday dessert! So happy I made a last minute reservation- can't wait to go back.
Our experience was amazing. The crab cake was exceptional. Highly recommend.
Our server Clay was fantastic! We took his suggestions and his descriptions were all accurate. The food was delicious and we will definitely be returning.
