Beautiful waterfront location. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. They do not rush you, and we were able to relax and linger over brunch. The food was fantastic as well!
Yes, ambiance and location is great, good food, at reasonable prices.
Service was outstanding and food fabulous!
Great location, good food and friendly service! Will recommend.
Food just ok, but views fab. Would go again for happy hour.
food was amazing, and the prices aren’t terrible for being in tribeca on the water
Horrible service, seated us outside as we had been promised after we insisted that we were promised an outside table. They were going to seat us inside.
Service was atrocious- took forever to order, get drinks and entrees- which were only burgers!!! Would not go back.
Amazing place and amazing view. It was nice to have experienced a great vibe and to taste awesome food.
Great place by the river with great views and nice food. The service was also very nice. I would recommend the place, especially for lunch or brunch.
Food was terrific and so was the service! I will definitely be back!
Wonderful early evening dinner! As usual, fabulous menu and fabulous food. Although there are limited options for vegetarians (one of three of us is veg), I was able to find something to eat and be very happy. Love the bartender/mixologist! Consistently wonderful martinis! Our server really stood out this time. He was so nice, not rushing us, made some great suggestions and was very attentive. We were outside and eventually it was a bit chilly - he allowed us to take another table inside and made no fuss about it. Totally, totally fabulous evening... Will keep coming!
Since moving to New York from Chicago this is our favorite go to place. We frequent this place often, and Beatrice has become our favorite waitress !!Everyone has a smile, patrons and waitstaff. You can’t mess with the beautiful view of the Hudson river!
Had brunch outdoors. Great eggs Benedict. View of the river was beautiful on a sunny spring day. Service very good. Attentive server, frequent water refills. Hostess was cranky, but not a dealbreaker. Would highly recommend, especially sitting outside.
The restaurant was very nice and the service outstanding. The food was very good, quality ingredients.
First visit with work colleagues. Good food and service. Would consider another visit. Spinach artichoke dip appetizer was delish!
Our burgers were amazing! Also has fantastic views (at night across the Hudson) and friendly staff with quick service
Really lovely first time experience. Delicious cocktails, solid signature burger (fresh), fun and beyond yummy mac hospitable staff who, lovely views. $111 in grand total (including tax & tip) for 2 cocktails, mac&cheese quartet, one signature burger. ($85 food•$6tax•$20 cash tip)
Had salmon, was cooked as requested and very tasty.
Service was really poor. Host was rude and did not even try to be friendly. Sat on the patio, which was fairly empty, but noone came over to take our orders. We finally waved down another waitress and she thankfully took our order anyways. 2nd round took forever, check took forever. Bussers didn't speak English and couldn't understand our request to get our waitress for the check. Sigh, terrible night overall. Views were nice. That's about it
Beautiful view and outdoor space with super-friendly waitstaff - can see the Statue of Liberty while dining. Unfortunately the food was pretty lousy and quite expensive. I would not go back; I'd look for another restaurant in Battery Park area.
It was a perfect day to enjoy their outside seating. The service was excellent. The food was good . But $50 per person for brunch seemed like a lot. The uniqueness of the place made up for it.
Food and service were great, and very nice view of Statue of Liberty
My friend and I decided to go to NYC for a day and i was nothing but amazing. We had a great time and the good was great
Fine food fine people great setting!
Beautiful view, food nice and our server, Bradley, was very attentive and helpful. Enjoyed our experience.
Quite place close to 9/11 memorial! Delicious lunch, very friendly service, perfect place to relax in the city !!!
We enjoyed our lunch here the food was good the view on the water was beautiful. Really a nice calm spot to grab a bite and some drinks with wonderful company. Definitely will be back soon!
It's a small intimate place. With an amazing view.
This was a fantastic small and quaint restaurant with stunning food and a great serving team. I took my step mom here for her birthday and it was a huge success. THANK YOU for the desert on the house. Highly recommend to anyone!
Lunch and drink with friends was fantastic
A pleasant place, with grate views of the river. The service is friendly and fast, and the food is good. I ordered a prix fixe menu, which was reasonable, though the slice of the cheesecake that came with it
required a microscope to be visible.
We went there to celebrate my daughters bday over lunch. It was the perfect location. It was a very warm March 15 and the water views and the “people watching” on the river walk were perfect!
We ordered the Mac & cheese appetizer to share for the 4 of us. We just had to get it since it was a special occasion. My daughter and her BFF enjoyed it.
The staff (from manager to bartender to bus boy) were very friendly and accommodating.
We will definitely go back!
The food is very good and the waiters and maitre'ds bend over backward to help you. I've gone there for years and always had a lovely meal.
They don’t have none of the food that was posted on social media ... I am never coming back here
Great food, great river views, especially at night!
Great service, awesome views and great food!
Marvelous restaurant.. great food...
Whenever I visit New York from Toronto, Canada I make sure to visit the Merchants River House at least once on my trip if not more often..
Not only is the food great... the overall ambience is relaxing and friendly... not to mention the views of the Jersey shoreline on the Hudson...
Great restaurant with delicious food and excellent service. Could be a bit chilly in some sections during the winter.
Service very good, view terrific, salad delicious, but fish and chips main course was not tasty, and the dish had just a single smaller piece of fish.
