Service was terrible, mismanaged staff/kitchen and food not prepared correctly. Half an hour after seated until server came to table, another 25 minutes for drinks. Entrees arrived before appetizers and were undercooked and others, luke warm. The atmosphere is the only positive !

After making reservation told it would be 20 to 30 minutes
By that time it seemed too chilly out to eat outside so we asked if we could sit inside which wasn’t originally asked by hostess seated at table without view in empty room so we moved our table to get view
Limited entree menu and out of one
Waitress was good

Our dinner was fantastic! We hosted a small group for our daughter’s 15th birthday. My husband and I sat at our own table but had the same waitress, Molly. She was wonderful, very attentive and accommodating to all of us. In addition, the food was delicious and the view was spectacular. We will be back!

Excellent food, weak drinks, bad overall service. 45 min wait to be seated when I did have a reservation. Food arrived to the table and I had to ask three times for silverware. I literally had to clean my own table. Hostess and busboys are clueless. The food and the view 5 stars

I opted for outdoor and I was there at opening time.
The hostess was on the 'phone, ignored me and took the people who had walked in behind me.

The bartender gestured to the empty patio and invited me to sit anywhere. None of the tables were set...no silverware, no condiments, no glasses, etc...(not very inviting)

When my guest arrived, we were talking and waitress had to come back for our order...so no problem.

After we'd finished our first drinks, we waited a while and I had to go to find the waitress to order additional drinks, at this point about five other couples had been seated on the patio.

I then had to flag down the waitress to get the check...seems that after the main service, we'd been forgotten and it wasn't exactly busy

Wonderful on the river location for beautiful views of the Hudson and the new Tappan Zee bridge. Huge outdoor deck will accommodate many people. Food and service matches the view. Loved the gumbo.

We got very lucky when the morning rain stopped and it turned into a beautiful day to sit on the water. The view was amazing, our server was attentive and friendly, and the food was outstanding. The jasmine rice and Hoisin ribs were fabulous. The roasted corn salad and the burrata salad all top notch. I couldn't ask for a better way to spend a Mother's Day celebration with Mom. All staff members from the Valet to the hostess and the servers were all very welcoming and friendly.

Place is excellent for having a drink on the deck with the view of the bridge, right on the water. Food was just okay with an extremely long wait for no apparent reason. Service staff was friendly but not but attentive as I would expect for a place that only had a handful of people there. Place has so much potential so I was disappointed.

On a beautiful spring day, we dined outdoors by the shore of the majestic Hudson River. The food, especially the raw bar, octopus, and burgers, was excellent. The cocktails were imaginative. Try the Bananas Froster. The ambience cannot be beat.

Waited 15 minutes to get a drink order- wait staff had no idea who had what table. The drinken PEI mussels were over cooked but the broth was good. Our app plates were never removed from the table even though it was all stacked on the end of the table- intact they could put the dessert down because the dinner plates were still there.
The food had been under a heat lamp too long because the edges of the lamb special that werent covered by sauce were beyond dry. There were 5 or 6 wait staff and only 5 or six tables and to top it off the hostesses sat on their phones at the stand and bar instead of helping facilitate anything.
I felt bad for the waitress we had, clearly untrained and no direction from management. Hopefully they are just working the kinks out under new management- will try again this summer because the location is awesome.

The food was good but I'd recommend the place and come back for the view. When I'm paying $30 for a dish I expect cloth and not paper napkins. When I order shrimp cocktail I don't expect to get cocktail sauce in a prepackaged plastic container that I have to take the lid off of (same with the ketchup). The service was attentive and pleasant.

This place is on the Hudson River, so great views, casual and informal setting..we went on an afternoon and I am sure the evenings there would be really beautiful with the river and the bridge with lights.. Food is fine, not exceptional..if you go there it's primarily for the ambience.. you can also go there with large family or a group..would love to go there again on an evening!

Dinner was great, view amazing. We sat right on deck overlooking the water & beautiful lights on the bridge.
Service was excellent and the server(s) even offered to take our picture.
Food was very good and I was very happy they charged a very fair, lower amount for me ordering a very basic pasta dish vs. the offered dish on menu.
My wife and I will definitely be returning to Pier 701. Thank you!

Came on a quiet Sunday during pre-season using a Groupon, so right off the bat this may not reflect experience in-season. Dining room was half filled with nearly everyone using Groupon, which always make me sympathetic for servers as people frequently over-expect and under-tip.
Room felt fairly sterile even seated next to their fireplace. Server was very friendly with a casual approach (ended up she was in her first week of employment). Ordered drinks, apps and entrée. After 5-10 minutes we were informed they were out of the app and we had to ask for a menu to review our options (you'd think they would be prepared to present menu). While disappointed, the alternate, a simple shrimp cocktail was well prepared but had a very small ramekin of cocktail sauce.
Entrees were decently portioned but my seafood risotto was not visually appealing. Some garnish or decorative plate would do wonders.
Overall, food was decent, but not outstanding. Room was comfortable but not charming. Staff was serviceable but not memorable. When using a Groupon, the value was good, but unsure whether I would visit at full price or during peak season when service will most likely suffer.
