We celebrated a birthday at City Vineyard during the cold winter. The heated patio was perfect and the crowd was minimal, making it a nice break from the cold. We loved the brunch food and the service was fantastic. We will absolutely visit again.

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!

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!

One meal came 30 minutes after the others, and the server didn’t come to our table after our meal for at least another 30 minutes. Food was great, wine was excellent, but the server did not bring her A game.

Four of us went there Oct 23 to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Pre dinner drinks were very nice at a relatively quiet bar. Had very good happy hour wine, our bartender was attentive and very personable.

For dinner, dishes were butternut squash, risotto, steak and salmon. All wonderful.
Dessert was served with a birthday candle for the birthday girl, and she was even given a small gift for future drinks. Totally unsolicited. Very classy touch! Thanks, City Vineyard!

From the moment we walked in, every single person on the staff were lovely people and made us feel welcome. Our waitress specifically was the nicest person and made our dining experience that much better. The wine is great and the food is as well - and they come in big portions which is always nice. What made it even better was the spectacular view. Definitely somewhere I'll be revisiting, especially when it gets warming outside.

We booked City Vineyard for my mom's 50th Birthday and we have no regrets! The location was excellent - waterfront with indoor and outdoor seating. The ambiance was cosy and the service was exceptional. We enjoyed their wine selection and the delicious butternut squash risotto. Would definitely recommend!

We ordered the seafood platter. The clams had so many rocks in them they were uneatable. When we told the server, she said sorry and walked away. The shrimp cocktail was under done. They did take off $9 for that but considering the platter was $55, not much of an impact. It’s a lovely setting so I suggest just going for a drink instead of the food.
