Eating at the Boathouse, looking out the picture windows onto the Lake is the most beautiful and relaxing way to celebrate in New York. It is gorgeous. The food is delicious. The service is welcoming and accommodating. It is expensive but great for a special anniversary or birthday.
50th birthday celebrations with my son daughter and cousin. Totally enjoyed the food drinks view and experience.
Venue lovely, service excellent, food only ok and quite overpriced I think
Perfect day thank you so much. All staff were fantastic and food exquisite
Lovely lunch to celebrate my birthday in NY! Visiting from Sydney!
Excellent!! Beautiful views and the food was outstanding!
Great location and excellent atmosphere after a new year’s walk through Central Park.
The server came by once - never checked on us. The busboys were great they came around often. I wanted to ask for something for my lunch- by the time he came over all of us were done with meal.
Absolutely amazing in every way. Highly recommend.
Visited for Boxing Day lunch on our trip from UK. Place was very busy but we were seated immediately as we'd booked in advance. Service staff were friendly, smartly dressed and helpful. The setting is great and we had a window table with view out over the lake. Food was delicious and well cooked. The Monkfish Risotto I ordered was particularly good. We shared a bottle of our favourite Taittinger NV, which was priced very reasonably compared to other places and wines available. All in all, a very enjoyable experience, followed by a horse and carriage ride around the park. Tip: Wear a jumper if you are visiting in Winter, it ain't triple glazed!
Nice setting - probably better in the warmer months. We felt very rushed. The service was poor and the food wasn't great. It's very expensive considering the average food and service. The setting is the only thing going for this restaurant in my opinion.
Excellent service. Creative menu without going “too far”. Beautiful setting and while very open still conveyed a sense of warmth and inviting atmosphere.
I have been wanting to go here to eat for a good number of years and as we were visiting New York for my 50th birthday it was an ideal opportunity to visit.
I was quite disappointed by the shabby appearance outside with peeling paint and broken signs but once inside it was lovely and very christmassy but in an elegant way not tacky. The menu was a little limited but the food that we had was very good. Now for the service, the waiters and staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and they were very informative about the choices, etc.
Overall a lovely dining experience in a beautiful setting but i would suggest asking for a table lakeside as this was where we were and it was stunning.
Outstanding food and location
The food was only 1 Star...waste of time and money!!!!
Visited for my husbands birthday, fan food and service
In NYC visiting the Met and had a delicious meal right in central park at the Boathouse - great ambiance and delightful meal on a crisp winter day. Great place to meet!
Exceptional service and the quality of the food was so good.
Great lunch spot in iconic location. Our server was great and had excellent recommendations.
A beautiful setting and warm friendly atmosphere. Requested a window seat which did not dissapoint it was a gorgeous view.
