Not our first visit and Covid is not gone, so surprised waiters not wearing masks. Getting that out of the way…. Usual prompt service. Waiter was really rushing us to order, like we needed to eat, pay and get out. Food was quickly delivered. Food was good, as usual (crab cakes, burgers, no dessert, coffee was never delivered) Waiter hovering to remove almost-empty plates. I think they, like every restaurant in the USA, are doing the best they can. So we tipped them 20 percent for mediocre service and hope they are still in business at the other end of this pandemic. Be patient, everyone!
Had a lovely lunch at the Central House Boathouse yesterday. This is an oasis in the middle of Manhatten. Food was exclellent and you can't beat the view!
Perfect. Amazing service. Amazing food. Incredible view. Perfect.
Friendly Staff, beautiful view the the lake and awesome food ! No to mention the drinks ! They’re fantastic
My wife and I celebrated the anniversary of our engagement here today. We reside in NYC and came here years ago after I proposed to her. The Boathouse, therefore, has a sentimental value for us. We were very pleased with everything about the restaurant: from ambience and food and champagne to the exceptional service. This is saying a lot. It is an excellent restaurant, not only for tourists but also for discerning New Yorkers.
what a lovely charming fun place! The venue is beautiful and the views are great. Delicious food and very cordial staff.
We were celebrating 50th anniversary. Our server Edgar made it a special night.
Our family of 6 enjoyed a late lunch outdoors with a beautiful view. The outdoor terrace was at full capacity but the service was still great. It was such a relaxing meal after a busy morning at the Met.
Amazing!!! We went here for lunch to celebrate our anniversary and the hostess was so kind to put us by the water for a better view. Amazing food, a little pricey but nothing out of the ordinary for the city. It's gorgeous and the perfect stop for a Central Park afternoon!
Food is excellent and ambience even better! I had a wonder birthday luncheon. cocktails were amazing also!
Atmosphere and food were both excellent. Highly recommend. On the expensive side but would return for a special occasion.
Beautiful place, great food and the best service…!
Wonderful ambience, great food and service
Very pleasant & courteous server.
Table- Had requested close to water but got an interior table up against a serving station which was tight with elderly parents & 2 walkers. Otherwise all enjoyed and server brought a complimentary dessert for father’s 92nd birthday.
Given distance & rain, a shuttle service would be a good idea from E72nd st entrance to park for the elderly
Great views and great food. Highly recommend for a nice dinner in the patio
I requested a table by the water for my birthday. I actually told them several times this is my birthday dinner. We arrived only to be told sorry every request cannot be filled. I own a restaurant, so ok. Our waiter would stop at one of his tables and no lie have 10 minute conversations. Thus, his other tables including mine were not his priority. I had a $320 bill, which I expected . We ordered two desserts even and not one was given to me . I’ve eaten Gramercy Tavern and Babbo, fir my birthday and they are much higher end in my opinion snd sing Happy birthday. They bring you a plate with Happy Birthday and your name written in chocolate sauce. It’s not that I had to pay for my dessert. It is the poor customer service and lack of appreciation for customers.
The Boathouse is always magical. So wonderful to be back after this pandemic year! Special shout out to our amazing server, Angel, who was the best!
Beautiful location and very effective service. The food is good (but not the best feature), the ambience is a bit too noisy for being an almost outside setting.
Delicious food. My favorite part was the panna cotta
Excellent service, food and atmosphere.
Really special experience for my 10 year old’s birthday. Service was outstanding as was the food.
Great atmosphere and food
It's one of those places you go to because it's NY
Food is ok. Nothing amazing to about it. Service was decent, except for this guy who looked miserable and would spill every time he served water.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Can’t wait to return!
Beautiful place! Good food! Amazing ambience and service is the top!
It’s a lovely way to enjoy a nice lunch by the water and feel completely disconnected from the noise of the city. The food was very good and generous portions. The service is amazing!
It was a special treat! Service, food and view were all fantastic!
The staff was both patient and accommodating. Such a beautiful setting. And good food!
I cannot say enough good things about this place. It’s featured in so many iconic movies and for nice dining in New York it has a great variety of prices! Our waiter was amazing and gave us GREAT recommendations. Overall 5/5 experience on everything. I will be returning before I leave New York.
ngl, great vibes
Excellent service all around. Great food with delicate care to flavor and style. Definitely pricey but worth the experience! Had water constantly being refilled and really enjoyed the Pineapple Mojito cocktail!
Pésima atención en la parte de afuera s
Celebrated our ten year anniversary!
Delicious food and great ambience by the water. Hard to beat this location.
Wonderful experience; the waiter was great. The hostesses gave us a great table without any argument . I am vegetarian and the vegetarian option was delicious.
Iconic NYC restaurant with great food and service.
One of a kind location. Central Park overlooking boats and gondoliers active on water.
The view of the boat pond from the restaurant's terrace is lovely, especially at twilight.
The food is very good, but I am disappointed to see the prices
creeping up since I last dined there, less than a month
Very well located- excellent ambiance. Great food ( try the superb crab cake…). Staff is very efficient and extremely nice.
