Flor our server was amazing! We loved the service and the hostess was kind enough to seat us inside on an early spring day when they were pretty packed. I can’t wait to come back.

Online the website seemed like a quiet, upscale restaurant. In reality, it’s a venue for affluent 20-somethings and 30-somethings-who-still-wish-they-were-20-somethings to drop $70 a bottle and get shwasty on a Sunday afternoon. Additionally, the river view is an abandoned pier, complete with manure pile for landscaping. Saw multiple people who had over-imbibed, was too loud to have a conversation, and the bathroom line wrapped around the building. If you want a party scene, that’s your place. Don’t go for a gentle, older afternoon, or any semblance of a conversation.

Hello and thank you for taking time to write this review. Our weekends are usually full of the hustle and bustle of guests of many ages coming and going. Our weekdays produce more of a calmer crowd, please come join us earlier in the week. Sorry of the view of the Pier, the NYC actually is constructing a wetlands at the end of the pier and park on the pier. Please contact me at anohalty@citywinery to discuss your visit with us further. . Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager

A girlfriend and I wanted to have a relaxing Friday night, so we went to City Vineyard on the first slightly spring day. CV has indoor and outdoor seating, but we were seated inside (weren’t asked our preference) next to the glass wall looking out at NJ. The place was starting to fill up, and we weren’t aware there was going to be live music starting soon. We ordered the mushroom risotto balls, the sopressata flatbread and a bottle of wine. The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive! The band High Season played folksy songs, with various performers coming up (a harmonica player and a singer). My friend and I had enough time to catch up before the music started, because it wasn’t feasible to chat once the band started. I’d definitely go again when it’s warmer. The sunset view over NJ is simply beautiful!

Quiet, chill, and pretty good food. The brunch option is great and they don’t force everyone on the table to participate. I imagine it can get pretty loud in the summer but it was chill in March. No complaints on food but nothing amazing.

The restaurant is situated in a beautiful location overlooking the pier. We went during the winter, but I bet it would be lovely during the summertime! The pier is dark at night (there were little to no lights out there), so you're really going to get the best views during daylight hours. The menu is small but sure to have something on it for everyone. We had risotto balls as the appetizer and they were unique and delicious! I had the salmon entree and it was good, but nothing particularly spectacular when it comes to salmon. We were seating in a big empty dining room in the back, possibly because there was live music happening in the front, so keep in mind if they have a music event, you can't really sit in there for dinner. Our server was distant but helpful. All in all, I liked it, but I bet I would enjoy it much more during the day and during the spring/summer!

Hi Stephanie! Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We're glad to hear things went well, though it sounds like we can do so much better to improve your experience in the future. Our menu offers more variety in the warmer season, so we hope that you will return to explore more options and a more lively atmosphere next time. As you saw, we also have live music nearly every night in our main dining room, so perhaps next time you will join us in the main space! - Evan Fazio, GM

Had the mussels, they were excellent. Tap wines seem interesting, but we didn't try them this time. There was live music in the bar, we weren't fans but lots of others were so that's a fun neighborhood thing, and the location on the water is really wonderful. Service toward the end of our meal was pretty slow. But we'd definitely go back .

I chose City VIneyard because I had guests from Europe that wanted a place with a view and most places with a view are very expensive. It was raining but still nice. Food was good, not great (my salmon was actually very good) but choice is very limited. We happened to have a waitress who could not have been nicer. I would certainly choose this place if you are going to a concert at the winery. As a restaurant it is OK, nothing special about the food, but I imagine without the rain, it would be a great place to have a snack, lunch or dinner on a nice day.

Quiet, after- Halloween, Sunday stroll down the Hudson River Park and decided to stop in to City Vineyard for a small bite and a night cap. Venue is adorable, even when the summer sections are closed off. Got seated in the enclosed outdoor area, which was heated and includes a great view of the river, Jersey and a bit of downtown.

Our server Flor approached in a warm and helpful manner and we selected some delicious apps and wine. Charcuterie/cheese board was tasty which paired perfectly with our red wine. We were then visited by Alexandria the manager, who thanked us for stopping in and chatted with us about our choices and made some further recommendations for dinner. This made our visit! She was so charismatic and knowledgeable - we can’t wait to come back for brunch.

Loved the service, the location and the food/wine were delicious.
Happy to write this, and looking forward to our next visit!
