Central Park BoatHouse
Everything was GREAT! So glad we could experience it!
We went for my husband’s 60 th - loved the view, the ambience and the food- we had a warm cider in the bar beforehand and also noticed excellent home cooked things for lunch very reasonably priced - will go back for lunch before we leave and get there early to sit by the open fire - lovely staff too .
Really nice restaurant to sit and look onto the water. Food and wine very nice and very reasonably priced for the area.
Although I struggled to get a booking when I arrived more than half the tables were empty which was strange. Best to say when booking you want a window seat and reiterate that upon arrival.
We enjoyed the Boathouse tremendously on our first visit to this fine establishment.
Really nice lunch in central park. Great location and even on an overcast day it was lovely. Service was good.
The menu is very limited and extremely overpriced for lunch.
The view, the service, the food...all amazing. Will return soon.
Excellent service & the food was exceptional! Travelling from Australia to dine here & I would definitely return.
très bon restaurant dans un cadre superbe et avec un très bon service
One of the best meals we had in NYC. Insanely busy but waiter was still attentive and friendly. Didn’t try to rush us. Great view and menu choices. Not as ‘posh’ as I’d thought which for a New Year’s Eve lunch after a long walk was perfect.
The Central Park Boathouse has a great ambience. The service was excellent. Water was continually topped up and overall the service was perfect... not too intrusive.
The food was really tasty... bistro style. You do pay a premium for the location but would certainly visit again. A great experience.
Great experience. However plate clearing was a bit slow even when we asked to have them cleared.
Great place, wonderful view and atmosphere, good food - a must
Fabulous location in Central Park right on the edge of the lake. Wonderful clubby ambience and service is excellent, as is the food. Restaurant was busy for a lunchtime (Christmas period) but service was still exceptional. Food good and we were not rushed even though lots of people waiting to come in. We would definitely return!
Not enough bathrooms for the ladies though! Had to get in a long line twice!
Also you should know Opentable that the restaurant does not take bookings before 12 noon as it is not open until that time. You took ours for 11am and we arrived only to be told come back at noon.
Lovely views and our food was excellent!
Wonderful ambience. View was lovely particularly for someone who has never been in New York in winter before. Service was excellent.
Das Lokal ist mit Sicherheit eine Institution, die man sehen möchte. Die Speisekarte ist übersichtlich, internationale Gerichte werden angeboten. Der Service ist freundlich und aufmerksam. Allerdings ist das Finish des Essens ausbaufähig. Das Boathouse ist ein guter Zwischenstopp, im Sommer wird es wohl mit seinem Flair für einen längeren Aufenthalt geeignet sein.
We visited the boathouse after a recommendation from friends who visited a couple of years ago. First impressions were good. We were greeted at the reception desk and taken to our table. We were given menus and waited for a drinks menu. Our order was taken and still had no drinks. Our starter arrived and almost finished before we received our drinks. The food we had was very good however we were never asked during the meal if everything was ok even when we finished our meal. Small things like not having a side knife for your bread and having to use the same knife for your main meal when paying $150 on lunch for two. As said food was great but overall experience very poor given that service is supposed to be excellent.
It was very nice but I expected a little more WOW factor as far as holiday decorating goes.
Friends and I had a lovely lunch at the Boat House recently. We were seated immediately with our reservation. Service was very good and our waiter, Muhamed A., was outstanding. The food was very good with a good selection of choices. It's a busy place this time of year but the tables are well arranged so that you have privacy and the noise level is fine with so many people visiting. It's a lovely setting, overlooking the lake with a lit Christmas tree perched on a boat which must be lovely when the city darkens. It's a very nice restaurant for a special occasion. Ii just wish they were open for dinner during the winter months.
Food and service were excellent. However, the glare of the blinding sun through windows , which shifting the awnings did not eliminate , made the overall experience unpleasant. Why they do not have semi opaque window coverings that would block most of the glare without totally obscuring the view is beyond me. I have now dined there 3 times, the first two being wonderful and this most recent being unpleasant.
The food was excellent, the dining room was gorgeous, and wait staff was attentive.
I was a single female with a reservation. I was in line for when the restaurant opened in the morning...despite the empty dining room, they sat me in the back away from the window, next to another single female. We weren't good enough to sit toward the front - at least that's they way I felt and the situation was perceived.
Slow service. Food below average and not worth the price
Amazing food lived up to the expectations, service was great. Would come back again next time in New York.
Advised by a friend to go here when visiting New York - and we were not disapointed! Lovely food, great vibrant atmosphere and staff were superb
Outstanding service and good food..had lunch with a friend to celebrate our annual Christmas trip to NYC
A real treat in the centre of New York a must do place to go, lovely staff excellent service.
Amazing food, atmosphere and service!!!!! I would definitely recommend for a great lunch day
Fabulous venue with stunning views. Our Waiter was both knowledgable and efficient. He made three recommendations all of which I choose for my lunch, I wasn’t disappointed. I would definitely go to the Boathouse again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
The boathouse is always a must for us when we visit New York-winter, spring, summer or fall!
Fabulous place. I booked a table before I arrived in New York from home in England. Great food and service from lovely staff, so much so that we took the chance again on our last day to have lunch there. Just as good as our first time, all the food was beautifully cooked and presented and the Panacotta is the best I’ve ever tasted.
We went to the Boathouse to celebrate my mother’s birthday. You can’t beat the location and hands down, this was the best meal we had while in New York.
Amazing scenery. Amazing food and amazing service.
Had beautiful weather for our visit which made the lake look incredible. Service was excellent and thoroughly made our visit.
Lovely meal and great service
So beautiful!!!! Amazing views overlooking the pond and Central Park! Cozy Christmas decorations!
Always a great place....especially during the holiday season!
Never had a bad time...or a bad meal.
Always a favourite place to go during our visits to NYC.
Just the best place for lunch
