·Dined 3 days ago

The waiter only came three times (when we sat down, ordered, and ordered once more ). For the money you spend there for two people; it came to over 150 dollars without tip; there should be more attentiveness. Also, the waiter did not give us any drink options, and said we needed to go to the bar to order a drink. There were wine menus at our table. Didn’t make much sense.

The food though was fantastic; enjoyed my appetizer, main course, and desert.

The dress code was pretty bad though. People were wearing ripped jeans when my significant other and I were dressed appropriately for such an occasion.

I would like stricter dress code. It’s a nice five star restaurant, not an Outback Steakhouse.

From the moment you walk into the restaurant, service is great. The waiters constantly keep everything moving without getting in the way of having your meal. Their attention to detail is great. Something as simple as cleaning a crumb of your table in between a appetizers and your main course is a great gesture. I would definitely recommend anyone to dine here.

Took my boyfriend out for his birthday. Food was delicious! Started with apple cider braised mussels, I had the steak frites and my boyfriend had the gnocchi. My steak was a little dry/chewy but everything else was perfect! we really enjoyed the mussels and his gnocchi!! Delicious. Service was excellent as well. Will definitely come back!!

My wife and I ordered the steak for two which was cooked a little under what we ordered (medium-rare rather than medium) but we were so hungry we ate it without complaint. It was delicious as we're the sides of portobello mushroom fries and brussel sprouts. For dessert we had the banana tart which was not too sweet and really creamy - perfect after such a meat centric dinner.

We love the view at liberty house and have always been meaning to have dinner there since we got married there over 2 years ago. The only sad part is that it took us so long to come back. Well definitely be here more often in the future.

We went to Liberty House during Hudson Restaurant Week. The food was excellent. Our waiter Steven D was very attentive. Cocktails at the bar were also top notch. Of course the view is great. Highly recommended for any occasion. We will put this on our rotation list!

The food quality was adequate. Nothing to write home about. The prices of drinks and food are a little on the high side compared to the portions. Service was very good, prompt and attentive. The view is spectacular especially when you can sit outside. Very good parking but be sure to get your parking ticket stamped. Would recommend as a great lunch meeting place.

For a special occasion dinner we spent over $300 on a three course meal that was inedible. Cold rubbery food, bitter tasting, came so quickly in order to get a new group in, therefore must have been sitting around on an assembly line. Lovely view etc, but there is no attempt to match the quality of food with the high prices. Across the canal you can get MUCH better for for half the price. DO NOT recommend

Dining area - Super tight of a space between tables.

Food - Main course was OK.. desert was terrible, ordered some chocolate cake brownie, it was hard as a rock. My kid when she was 5 made better brownies then that..

Service - Aweful, Waitress breath wreaks of cigarettes. I ordered flat iron steak and my wife had the duck, we were cutting the meat with bread butter knives!!!! And finally when we were on our last few bites of our main course, the waitress comes by and was like "oh I'm sorry about forgeting to give you guys steak knives". In addition, our table had crumbs from when they served us bread when we first sat. Asked waitress to have our table cleaned, she never did. Finally before we had our desert I asked the food runner to clean the table. Instead of using one of those special restaurant crumb sweeper, he quickly grabs my linen napkins starts to batting the crumps off the table and onto our laps. I was like "what just happened"..

I proposed to my fiancé outside of the restaurant and then immediately had brunch with my family. This place is amazing. Amazing views of the New York skyline that are uninterrupted. The hostesses and wait staff are some of the best I’ve ever encountered. ANNE helped arrange the most memorable day of my life. Their food is also top notch. I would highly highly recommend this restaurant to my friends. We will always come back if we are in town

The restaurant is great because of its location especially in good weather, where you can sit outside and look at the NYC skyline. I've been there twice. The first time I had mussels and salad which were good. The most recent time I had the crab cake and was very disappointed. There was way too much filler and way too little crab. It's still worth going, but strongly suggest having something other crab cake.
A walk on the Promenade after lunch was delightful.

The only thing going for this restaurant is the obstructed view of lower Manhattan.

The wait staff are well intentioned, poorly trained, incompetents. The food is mediocre, and the recipes are poorly conceived. The meats are tender but tasteless, and of poor quality. Expect to pay around $100 per person for one drink, an appetizer, main course, dessert and coffee, tax and tip: grossly overpriced for lousy service and mediocre food, with no ambiance in an out of the way place difficult to access. I do not understand how a tourist trap like this can thrive in the NYC Metro Dining Market, where world class dining is commonplace.

I will not be back.

The service was excellent; our waiter was friendly and polite. The food, however, was somewhat disappointing. The appetizer of lobster cake and dessert of mango and passion fruit mousse were tasty enough, but our entrees of seared halibut was a bit dry, the braised beef short ribs stringy.
