Central Park BoatHouse
Fantastic place in beautiful surroundings, in Central park. Good food and great service. Rekommended!
Very nice restaurant in the middle of Central Park. Ask for a table near the window.
The service and the quality werent that good. I aspected more compared to the price quality. Altough it was a Nice evening
Everything was amazing.
Beautiful setting, excellent service, lovely food
We booked this restaurant as a special treat to celebrate our wedding the day before in New York and it was so disappointing. The food was so bland & very uninteresting flavors, I had the weird bowl of lettuce and cold bland flat chicken and my partner went with the burger slider option, I added on a side of burnt oil tasting fries which I did not eat(the server didn’t ask why the bowl of fries were still full so I chose not to say) my partners burgers were so greasy and plain tasting. We were so disappointed with Picking this establishment for our “celebratory lunch” so overpriced for the tasteless greasy food we received. We were not thanked when we walked by the receptionist for our custom.. maybe people pay for the “ambiance & the view” which was nice, but we pay for the food. We walked away from here thinking we should of saving our money & dined elsewhere.. so underwhelming...
Great place for a special occasion
Whether you live in NYC or are in for a visit, the Central Park Boathose is a fabulous NY experience. My favorite time is midday lunch. The ambience cannot be beat...enjoy watching the boaters as you dine and then take a walk through the park. The menu is not extensive, but has something for everyone...and everything is delicious. A bit on the pricey side, but worth every penny. Treat yourself!
Such a lovely evening venue to have dinner while watching the sunset. Everything was delightful. It was a birthday celebration and they provided a complimentary dessert.
This restaurant is perfect for a treat. Everything about the experience was perfect and flawless. The crab cakes are to die for!
Fantastic place to have dinner. With amazing views. Incredible food and a 5 star service! Highly recommended whoever visits New York.
I absolutely love the boat house and always enjoy a great meal there
Excellent service by a very professional staff. The venue itself is a little chaotic, however, the tables by the lake and the views are well worth it. The food was decent. Well worth the trip.
Nice atmosphere, friendly service,
To bad a special surprise from friends send by email was forgotten in the first place. Luckily it was noticed while we were still there. The excuses were accepted by us.
We had a very nice evening!
everything was wonderful at the restaurant itself. Saw some rats scurrying on the nearby rocks and it was a little unsettling. wanted to take a little stroll through the park after dinner and low and behold another rat ran right across our path. I know its a big city but was very upsetting!
Everything was perfect! Terrific service, great food and great atmosphere!
Muy buena cena.
Pero luego recibí un email de OpenTable diciéndome que yo había hecho un no show. Absurdo.
Great service & a beautiful setting. Had the honey chicken which could’ve been better. Thanks.
Yes, only for special occasions. The price is too high for the quality of the food.
The experience was spectacular ! They treat us fantastic , we came about an hour before because the kids were tired and they didn’t give us any problem ! The food was fantastic , our waitress was really nice and the guy in charge of the restaurant was also really nice with us . I would really recommend this place , the location is marvelous and so was the food and the service ! We really love it !
Loved it! My wife and I enjoyed everything about the boathouse. Can’t wait to go again.
Great spot ... service and food were great. Very cool view of the pond. If you throw a few crumbs in the water you will visited by fish and turtles.
Our overall experience at the boathouse was excellent. The service, atmosphere, view and food was sensational.
Even a balmy day a rain-drenched manhattan could not diminish the quality of our experience at the Boat house. With a small bit of help from a fine Silver Oak, the gastronomy delighted all of us, and the service was very good. A unique experience in the heart of manhattan, for sure, and one that reminds us how special central park and new york city are.
One of the best meals I had on my holiday. Lovely staff and very relaxing. Great to watch the huge fish and turtles in the lake.
Maravilloso espacio, menú sublime y atención perfecta. Felicitaciones
Lovely location. The food was great. We went over a holiday weekend do I think they were short on wait staff. We have been there before and the service is great. However this time it seemed short staffed. Otherwise it was great.
It’s great location to stop at in Central Park. The restaurant sits on the water; offers a romantic scene for a date night. Food and service was just ok. Husband got the lobster special. He complained that the lobster was too tough. I ordered the chicken dinner; it was standard, but a little bland. The manager made up for the food with great conversation and a surprise dessert. May keep it on the list for a great happy hour spot for the views of Central Park.
Très belle expérience, bonne cuisine, excellent service avec une attention à notre anniversaire. 10/10
Nous allons y retourner
Amazing place to celebrate a special occasion. Perfect setting, fabulous food and very attentive staff make this the most memorable meal in NYC. Highly recommend!!
Nice entrees, great view of the boats and water. Breaf could be much better.
They really pay attention to detail. I mentioned in the reservation that it was for our anniversary, only because naming an occasion was required to complete the booking. We received such exceptional service!! Our server did not rush us and was very attentive but not overbearing or nosey, the food was delivered quickly and fresh, and everything tasted great! The bussers and food runners were also very friendly and attentive. The only thing is I wish we would have had a table right next to the water but I understand that those tables are in high demand and get booked up quickly. We sat a table away from the water and were able to see people on a boat and turtles! Highly recommend this place!
Great restaurant. Good wine list and reasonably priced.
I was concerned the quality may be not be great considering the iconic location, but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the service. Would highly recommend.
Some restaurants with signature locations seem to think that their location and view gives them a pass on what they serve. Not so for the Boathouse... everyone in our party of 4 was pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of their orders. Great food, great view.
The food was terrific and the ambiance spectacular.
The manager should really learn how to treat his employes. There is no entusiasm, no smiles no dedication to the job they’re doing. All he does is yelling to them. You feel that this is just a money making machine. Fast in fast out, overpriced and boring.
Went to dinner in the evening, not so busy as the daytime on this day. Lovely ambiance and friendly staff. Table was right near the lakeside, food was excellent wait staff was very personable and friendly.I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Romantic dinner or celebrating a milestone, anniversary etc..
Lunch was great. We were six and had a lovely round table overlooking water. It was drizzling but still serene. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall a great experience!
Great location! Great view!
Crab cake was AMAZING!
Grilled octopus was okay. Different, but it was okay.
Seafood linguini is to die for!
Scallops were delish!
Will definitely give it another try the next time I’m in NYC!
We had a great time at the boathouse however we were charged twice on our credit card which caused fraud to be suspected in my card and for my card to be cancelled. Therefore that left a very bad taste in my mouth as I was left hight and dry the next day and with a mission to sort out with my bank. Really terrible end to a really awesome lunch
