Excellent place for an outdoors brunch, plenty of fresh air and the best waterside views in New York.
I celebrated my birthday here and they were having a wedding that they didn't tell me about so we had to rush through lunch BUT they were so gracious and felt bad that I hadn't been contacted so they made sure to take care of us and make me feel special for my birthday. The food, the atmosphere, and the staff make this place pretty special. I highly recommend!
The setting at the river is beautiful on a sunny day. The Brunch was okay. For me it was very strange that we got olives on the table that we did not order at all. So I thought that it's maybe complimentary from the house. But at the end we had to pay 9 Dollars for the olives. Besides the waitress asked us if we want some bacon with the omelett and we said yes but I never expected that a bit of bacon would cost 8 Dollars extra. For me the check has been an expensive surprise.
The atmosphere was really great and it was a pretty view being by the water. However, the place itself was overcrowded-- the outdoor bathroom queue was a 20 minute wait in the rain, the food wasn't very great and came out cold the first time so we had to send it back and the service was really slow. Our waiter was friendly and apologetic--he seemed to be overworked, it just didn't seem worth it for the cost of the food and I probably wouldn't go back or recommend it.
Paella no crust on the rice = not paella. Undercooked mussels
Love the place. The only thing is going to the restroom line was crazy!
Great place to meet friends on a Tuesday night. Beautiful night to drink and catch up
Hello and thank you for taking time to rate us. So glad you and your friends could enjoy us on such a beautiful night. We look forward to having you return. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager

Management isn't great, but they did try to accommodate. Food has gotten considerably better than several years ago., still has some room for improvement
Hi and thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the food, I am concerned about your experience with management. Could you please contact me at anohalty@citywinery. to discuss your visit further. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
The service was very slow and lazy and they ran out of yogurt
Hello and thank you for your feedback. It disappoints me that your visit was no up to the standards we set for ourselves. Please contact me at alexandria@citywinery, to discuss your visit further. I look forward to hearing back from you. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
If you're in your twenties, this is the spot! Saturday night on the water, you just can't go wrong here. The bar overlooks the river and views of NJ. Awesome.
We loved our server, Autumn. She really took care of us!
Absolutely lovely garden, food and staff. Autumn was our waitress and was superb. The sun was shining and the view is pretty. We discovered it while visiting the pier next door and am pretty sure city vineyard did not appear in any searches I did for outdoor dining but definitely worth a visit.
Excellent wine with stunning views on a nice day. Food is a little pricey but it good quality and very tasty. Would go again.
My boyfriend and I decided to go come here to celebrate his birthday after hearing nothing but good reviews from family and friends. It was very quiet for Wednesday night at 6pm, but that was probably due to the horrible storm that was taking place! We walked up to the hostess stand so that we could be seated, but she was on the phone and did not acknowledge our presence even once in the few minutes we were standing there. Eventually we are walked to our table, and not even a minute after sitting down, our waiter asked us if we were ready to order. We thought it was strange that he was in such a hurry to get our order since there was only 2 other tables that were actually occupied. This type of rushed service lasted over the course of the entire meal and made it very difficult to enjoy. My burger was pretty good, but my boyfriends crabcakes were burnt, and average at best. We eventually got our check and before we could even get our coats on, our waiter came back and took the check. I'm all for fast service (especially on weeknights), but what is not enjoyable is feeling like you're being rushed the entire time you're trying to enjoy a meal. I left with the impression that this is a place to churn out tables as quickly as possible, and not one where you can sit down and enjoy a meal.
Been here many times but this weekend was very disappointing. The food was bland and mediocre and they were obviously struggling with the busy holiday weekend crowd, the service was slow and patchy.
Hello Sue, Thank you for your feedback. It disappoints me that your visit was not as good as your other visits. We love when our guests come back time and time again. Please contact me at alexandria@citywinery, to discuss your visit further. I look forward to hearing back from you. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
Don't waste your time making reservations. I made my reservation days in advance for a roof top table only to have my request ignored. The food is over priced and poor quality. Even with reservations they make you wait in a long line when you get to the restaurant.
Wonderful. Had a very good experienced and will go back there again.
We had such a lovely time here over the long weekend - the perfect place to relax along the water with good food and delicious wine! The staff were friendly and attentive which made the whole experience even more enjoyable. Will definitely be back in the future.
Hello Kirsty! Thank you for rating us 5 stars across the board! So glad that you enjoyed yourself after a long weekend, and that the food, wine, and staff helped with that. We look forward to serving you in the near future. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager
Alexandria the host was very friendly. Our overall experience was great and we would definitely come again. The food was good. We ordered shrimp cocktail as an app. Then had the burger and chicken sandwich. The chicken was a little dry but the burger was so yum and juicy. We have a carafe of rose spritz which was also good and a great value for $45. Would def come back again.
Hello, thank you for taking time to rate and leave a review. The chicken sandwich is my favorite, I have let the chef know it came out a little dry for you. That rose spritz is the bees knees, especially on a hot summer day. We look forward to serving you again soon. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager
Was very good
One of those times when everything falls into place... The weather was nice, the view was spectacular, the restaurant had our table ready even though we arrived (seven of us) 15 minutes early. The waitress was as pleasant as can be, the service was timely. The menu was just long enough to have something for everybody, without overdoing it. The food was good, even if the oysters were all the small type. Somewhat noisy but not the boisterous, half-drunk or fake laughter noisy... the smiling, good looking, amiable noisy. Finally, prices were as expected... neither less nor more expensive than other nice places. Definitely a place to return to.
Laury, Thank you for kind words and great review! So glad you got the full experience of City Vineyard. We look forward to serving you again. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager.
Really overrated. Service was awful and food was frozen. Also ridiculously priced!
Hi Emma, Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed to hear about the service, we aim to give every guest a great experience and we let you down. Our food is made fresh everyday, I have let the Chef know about your concern. Please reach out to me, anohalty@citywinery to discuss your visit further. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
The wine was very good and we order paella that was also very very good.
Hi Maria, Thank you for rating us! We love our paella too, it's a big hit! Looking forward to serving you again. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager
While I’ve had many positive experiences here, this one overshadows all of them as the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. We were immediately sat (since we had a reservation), however a waiter didn’t not come up to us for at least 15 minutes, once one finally did we asked if we could get some water & rather than asking if we needed anything else (mind you we were prepared to order) he just ran off gave a few orders to the bus boy. The bus boy took multiple pitchers of water to the large table next to us, but we received nothing. We waited about another 10 minutes (25 minutes) and finally decided to leave....very hungry and very thirsty. I really loved this place, but not sure I’ll go back or recommend it to any friends.
Hello, I am glad you came back, but disappointed that your most recent visit was not a positive one. Our intent is to provide all of our guests with positive experience.

I reserved a table for 8(4 adults and 2 children) at 3.30pm. We were celebrating my daughter's graduation. We got there on time, but as soon as we got there the hostess who took us in told us that we had to be out by 5pm if we dine inside, which is where they had set up our table. We decided not to seat inside since we didn't like to be rushed. Outside, we also had to choose between being on the sun or the shade. The shaded tables also had the 5pm cut off time. We decided to have them set up a longer table outside. Between the time we arrived to the time we were seated took 30 min. Once we were seated, we were hit with another dilemma, it was 5 min to 4pm and we needed to put our order ASAP in order to order from the lunch menu. Because at 4pm they were changing to the dinner menu, and the lunch menu was not going to be available. The servers were cordial and accommodating, I believe they probably were following "orders" from management. In any case, the food took a while to come, and the dessert forget it, I took double the time of the food. To make things worst the creme brulee with berries had berries that were going bad, you can clearly see them.In any case, I don't blame the servers or the hostess, they did the best with what they had. But the beautiful view from this restaurant should match the food and service given. We try to make the best of it, but were disappointed that such joyous occasion was damper by the food and service of this restaurant.
Please allow me to begin by expressing my most sincere apology for letting you and your guests down. I share in your feelings of disappointment with every word you wrote, and I want you to know that I take it seriously, and I take it to heart. Please reach out to me at anohalty@citywinery. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
Great experience. Staff are attentive and helpful. View is fabulous. Drinks are great. Lunch was good.
Hi Ceet, Thank you for taking time to rate us! Glad you enjoyed lunch with us. We look forward to serving you again. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager
Hostess wasn’t very helpful, manager was pretty condescending as well.
Service was mediocre at best.

I have been to City Vineyard a couple of times and was really looking forward to bringing my family for my son’s milestone Birthday.Everything about it has gone downhill since last summer’s great experience.They really need to step up everything from the reception,service snd food.I had booked my reservation at least a month in advance for 6 people , therefore I was expecting a more gracious reception and we’ll located table.After negotiating to be placed outside, we were served our drinks half heartedly.I heard from 3 members of our party that the paella was really good (I am allergic) but after I had a salad,my mushroom flatbread came.I could not believe my eyes.It was a very sorry sight... a few sprinkled cheap mushrooms on uncooked flatbread drenched in balsamic which I presume was done to cover up the fact that there were no mushrooms.How cheap can a restaurant be?
Last year we came and it was so great! Especially the paella. Unfortunately this time a disappointment- the paella was cold under cooked rice and all the mussels were closed. Maybe they were just too busy otherwise it was a nice atmosphere.
Hello and thank you for taking time to write a review. I have let my chef know to make sure that each paella is up to standard. I am disappointed that you did not receive the best from one of our top selling dishes. Please reach out to me to discuss your visit further. Regards, Alexandria -Service Manager anohalty@citywinery.
The food and the service was excellent!!! I definitely recommend eating here. Chef micheal Landas is great!!
The food was awful. The manager took the food off our bill and only charged us for drinks.
Hello, I am disappointed to hear about the food, happy that the manager gave you great service. I would like to hear more about your visit. Please contact me anohalty@citywinery. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Alexandria Service Manager
Great views ... mediocre food by NY standards; restaurant could use a major cleaning; bathroom disgusting
Hi Dennis, Thank you for taking time to write this review. I am glad you enjoyed our views, but disappointed to hear about the food and our cleanliness. We always make sure our establishment is clean and our food prepared to each guests liking. I would like to hear more about your visit. Please reach out to me at anohalty@citywinery. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards , Alexandria-Service Manager
The service was poor. They would not less us sit outside on one of the many free tables despite having a table booked for food. The waitress was inattentive. The main meal took forever to come, waitress explained they had burnt the chicken so needed to cook again. Had to ask for water. Had to ask to order another beer. They threw in free fries as compensation. Had to ask to get the check rung through. Very expensive for what is second rate food and dining. Not happy
Hi Ben, I am disappointed to hear your experience here with us at City Vineyard was not at the standards of which we set ourselves to. I would love to hear more about your visit and hope you would give us a second chance. Please reach out to me at anohalty@citywinery. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Alexandria Service Manager
It’s a beautiful place next to the river... definitely one time a go. I ordered the French toast... delicious ... however the loud music during brunch time put me off. It was so loud that I couldn’t have a proper conversation with my friend across the table. Who needs loud music even before having a coffee ?
Hello and thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. The intention of the live music for brunch is to please our guests, and certainly not to be a nuisance. Please know that we have shared your feedback with the band as well as the entirety of the management team, and the steps will be taken to ensure all live performances during brunch are treated as pleasant background music, and not a distraction. Thank you and we hope to see you next time. - Evan Fazio, General Manager
We had a great brunch on the patio - lovely setting and wonderful staff. Great for groups and kids
Hi Alyssa, Thank you for taking time to rate us. So glad you and your family enjoyed us and the ambience. We look forward to serving you again. Cheers, Alexandria Service Manager
If you want to spend time with some friends sharing “boquitas” it is a nice place, with a nice view and good service.
For dinner on the other hand, I think the menu is limited.
Hi Marta, Thank you for taking time to rate us. I am glad you enjoyed yourself whilst here. We keep our menu small, since our kitchen is small and we want the food to come out fast, hot, and delicious. Our Chef chooses the best of best dishes to make. I hope you were able to try one our tasty entrees. Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager
At 8 pm, the restaurant had already run out of a number of dishes, including olives (how hard can it be to run out and get more olives?). The wait between courses was unpleasantly long. It looked like an understaffing issue, or a slow kitchen, or both.
Hi and thank you for taking time to rate. I am disappointed we did not make your visit the best it should. Could you please contact me at anohalty@citywinery to go over the details of your visit. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
We had a great time and Paul + team made sure it was a fun night for all! Will be back soon!
Hi and thank you for rating us! So happy to hear you had a fun and we look forward to having you return! Cheers, Alexandria-Service Manager
The views were great from the terrace, but the foods were expensive and not worth it. Maybe people should go there for just a drink
Hi and thank you for taking time to rate us. I would like to hear more details about your visit regarding the food. Could you please contact me at anohalty@citywinery. Looking forward to hearing from you. Regards, Alexandria-Service Manager
