Mother’s Day Celebration!
Went for Mother’s Day. Excellent food but shocked by the price of their prefixed menu for kids. $40 for my 3 year old to pick at some French fries. We’ve dined there a few times and never had a bad meal, drink or experience.
Excellent all around. A NYC institution is back and better than ever!
Delicious food and an amazing view of the park and the boats! A true NYC icon not to be missed!
What a great view, with good food and great service.
The food is great but the service not so good, I’m talking about the hostess they were so rude and they assume we know how everything goes, we got an appointment and we got 5 minutes early and they said come back in 5 minutes so we did and the they said you have to wait outside and outside was a long line that we could do when we got there the first time, but they didn’t say anything, and they were not pleasant at all. The place is beyond beautiful and the food great but I would never go back again, and we travel all the way from California to go to that place. That’s a shame
Excellent in every respect. From begining to end it was perfect. I highly recomend.
We had the most delightful evening, we started out at the bar while waiting for our table (we were early) and the bartender Tyler was spot on with our cocktails, our table was next to the water and what a view! The food and wine were excellent, our server Gallo attended to our table perfectly.
The Boat House is a definite must if you are in New York.
Excellent service by Amanda. Food was delicious! And of course the setting spectacular.
Fabulous table. Amanda our server was wonderful. Knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. Food was so good as were the drinks. We got a really great table. Both of us had a perfect view of the lake. We were treated to a birthday dessert along with a candle. Very nice touch. Fantastic experience.
The staff was so friendly . The food was good and the view of the water was beautiful. Great date for my husband and I.
Incredible atmosphere....always worth the trip....not to be missed
I had the most delightful time back at the Boathouse— the food and service were both exceptionally lovely. I ordered the swordfish special dish which came accompanied by eggplant ratatouille, which if they are serving— is a must order!
My mother was visiting the city and The Loeb Boathouse is probably her favorite memory of the trip! Our server was so welcoming and attentive. Beautiful scenery and incredible food.
We were able to sit right by the water and it was a beautiful evening
Not seated with a view by the lake - bummer for a special birthday. Not enough vegetarian options / pretty much no vegan ones. Margarita in an upscale restaurant using sour mix? Not good.
thrilled that the Boat House is back. Food was especially good. Love the ambiance.
Extraordinary service snd attention to my food allergies. Everything was made to order and delicious!!
Nothing can replace the joy of sitting among natural beauty of Central Park in a sunny day with friend
They first sat us inside where I assume the weddings are held
We asked to be moved to water side and yes very happy once we were probably seated
That was the best steak I've ever had, and my husband could have eaten their entire supply of olive bread. This will def be our anniversary date for the next few years.
Great ambiance and service was excellent,restrooms were clean
Enjoyed our afternoon,just that rain brought very cold temps👍
My husband and I had a lovely time celebrating our wedding anniversary - attentive staff, good food and lovely view of the pond. Highly recommend!
Was so happy to hear that the Boathouse was re-opening, and they did not disappoint!! Food was great, and the service was excellent, but as usual, the view takes the top prize! There’s nothing like the serene view of the rowboats out on the water, flowers blooming, and the park as a backdrop. Perfect day!
Reservation was for 2:30 specifying outside. Arrived on time. I was handed a buzzer and told I had to wait for my table. I had to ask the hostess to sanitize...HELLO, we’re still in a pandemic! With an attitude and in a huff, she sanitized it. Fifteen minutes later, we were shown to our table which was in an ante room indoors. Unacceptable! We waited another 15 minutes and were shown to a table plopped in the middle of the room near the serving station! I happened to notice a better table and insisted on it. More than 30 minutes after the reserved time.
They are overbooked and not adhering to the 1 1/2hr dining limit.
The food is mediocre. Beware, the tip is included in the bill already!!
Also the outside waiting area...filthy.
They need to get rid of the buzzer.....this isn’t Kansas Dorothy! Nor is it Applebee’s!
Great food Wonderful helpful waiter I made a res for may already
So happy to have the Boathouse back and better than ever! Well done Loeb Boathouse Team!!
We are SO happy that the Boathouse has re-opened! Our entire experience was wonderful. You all did such a great job! Thank you! Can't wait to come back.
Take care, Bonnie
The service was extremely great as my waiters were attentive and the view is extraordinary!
Was expecting outdoor seating which I specified and it was closed. Had to sit indoors which I have been scared to do during covid. Food was average-ambience was blah and indoors the restaurant is nothing special. Very disappointing.
Have lived in Manhattan all our lives and someone never got there! Always thought it was a tourist destination. Were we surprised. What a wonderful experience. Delicious food. Lovely setting Fabulous service. Will highly recommend it
Everything was great, except for the intensely noisy atmosphere. It was hard to engage in conversation with my lunch companions.
The service, food, and atmosphere was amazing! My wife absolutely loved her 48th birthday brunch, thanks again.
So glad you have reopened! Everything was wonderful!
It was a special time for my friend and I to have lunch at the Boathouse! The food was delicious, the service was great! Couldn’t the ask anything more!! Kathleen and Wendy
Took my son here for lunch on his 18th birthday. Staff was very attentive and accommodating. My sister brought a birthday cake for him and they plated it and delivered it with candles, singing and fanfare. Everyone went out of their way to make this a special day for him. Food was delicious and you can't beat the view!
Beautiful views, good food and cocktails. Great service. A little pricey, but worth the overall experience.
It was our anniversary and we had a great time. Thank you!
Amazing Birthday Celebration! Food was fantastic, service staff was 5 ⭐️
Lovely, my favorite place in New York City.....The Boat House is very special
I have always wanted to eat at the Loeb Boathouse, and it was everything I had hoped for. The food, service and atmosphere were all amazing. The Crab Cakes are a must. I will definitely go back when I visit Manhattan. Central Park is my favorite spot in Manhattan, and now it is over the top ... the best in my book. A must if you are wanting a memorable experience.
