Great overall anniversary experience. The service was excellent (attentive and friendly waiter), the views and ambience was amazing, and the food tasted excellent. The only downside was the food was a bit on the colder side, but again, tasted great. Could be because of the outdoor dining. Regardless, will definitely return!

Be sure to make a reservation because at a certain time they won’t be accepting walk ins, I made a reservation. As far as the food goes, before being seated they told us that there wasn’t any pastas which was disappointing for a Italian restaurant but we still decided to go in and try other dishes.
I ordered the chicken paillard definitely NOT worth it at all, got two wood oven pizzas: buffalo and prosciutto, which were great. For appetizers we got the octopus and whipped ricotta which was good. For dessert we got cheesecake, vegan chocolate coppa, tiramisu, definitely not worth it either, bill came to be for 3 people $240
Location was great, got a amazing view and the service was good but definitely not worth it since we didn’t even get a chance to try the pasta and the other food was ok, but not worth the price

The host was wonderful she made sure to get us seated quickly
As for our waiter he was beyond rude and needs to take a few lesson in manners. He did not introduce himself and his tone was extremely off almost like he didn’t want to take our order. Overall the view was very beautiful. Unfortunately I will definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This place never fails. Food is always great and the service is super fantastic. Even during these times the food and service meets the same level of expectations. I live in jersey but this is always worth the trip and I can’t wait to return. If you want a quality meal with an amazing view this should be on your NY/Brooklyn bucket list.

I was excited to try this place out especially with the menu that looks pretty solid.

Food:
We had ahi tuna, kale salad, burrata, lamb pasta

All very solid dishes but nothing that said wow about them. Ahi tuna had no acidity but did appreciate the little spice kick whenever it happened. Kale salad was fine. Burrata was fine (great balsamic reduction), and the lamb pasta was ok. Tasted good but nothing out the ordinary.

Dessert was tiramisu as well as the sorbet flavors. Tiramisu was more cake than anything kinda dry we left it. The sorbet was “powdery” dunno if the sugar never fully dissolved but we were crunching on sugar most of the time.

Ambiance:
If you are looking for a restaurant with social distancing this isn’t it. Tables are pretty much next to each other but they do a temperature check when you come in (which I guess it’s just liability because it’s the most minimal effort and more tables is more money)

Drinks:

We got a reserve bottle close to the $200 mark. What I was surprised out was how long we waited to get a second pour (they keep bottles on ice which is nice but not next to the table) we just asked to keep it on our table.

Service:

Not the best coming from a reputation like Cecconi’s. Our waitress wasn’t seen as much but a waitress from another table kept checking on us. Our primary waitress never asked us how our food was and she was running around (this might be more on the restaurant than her)

Overall:
If you want a good view with ok food and are fine with the price point and want to be trendy, go with this. If you want better food at the same price point there are plenty of places who will offer that. Main attraction is the waterfront view and not the food or service.

Food was delicious - bufflo pizza was very good. For entrees the Pasta dishes were great (lamb dish and lobster) and we had the chicken which was also yummy. Everyone was kind, but service was slow and confusing at times. Outdoor sitting was beautiful and social distancing was done well.

This place is all about the location. Its romantic and so beautiful. And i highly recommend you try it one time.

Pros: The views
Cons: drinks were ok. I should have ordered a beer.
Waiter - mediocre. Straight to the point. No recommendations. Just not warm and welcoming. My party definitely understands the heat and the mask are not fun.
Food - ok at best. The eggplant was over cooked. No bread to start off with. And i know not all locations do this but when i think of an Italian spot i think food,bread,warmth, being full. I was still hungry.

I wont crave to go back here.

My server (Tara E.) was absolutely amazing and the food was prepared to perfection as always. Best tiramisu I’ve ever had. Downside: The hostess was not so great (rude). Manager was subpar, when asked about if it was the correct vintage of a wine bottle he was passive aggressive in his response. I planned to have an intimate birthday dinner for my partner and I didn’t want to bicker over his error. Aside from that, thank you to Tara for providing exceptional service and the kitchen for their dishes.

We were celebrating our 5 Wedding Anniversary, the restaurant was notified when I made the reservation but didn’t seem to bother making any special amendments or courtesies. I wasn’t impressed at all. Having Food & Beverage & hospitality mgmnt background they could have at least acknowledged it. The ambience was good outdoor seating due to the COVID-19 situation, food was average and expensive overall I’d give it a 2 star rating.
