Great food and views. Excellent service. Kids menu a plus.
Fabulous view of the harbor and statue of liberty. Food was good and friendly competent service
Love dining here not just because of the good food and amazing view but because of the outstanding staff!
I made a reservation on Open Table and requested a specific table (something I never did before) and expected to be told why I couldn't have that table; instead, I was ushered right to the requested table and enjoyed a delicious meal with a dear friend.
Shelia, we're thrilled to hear that your reservation went seamlessly and that you enjoyed your meal with us. Cheers!
Yes, Charles, the excellent manager, always takes very good care of me. I would like to see more choices on the menu, but what is available is well prepared and very good. Service is always friendly and caring.
Thanks for your review, Beverly. We love feedback from our regular customers and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Thought there would be more seafood options. Food was OK you go for view and maybe drinks..
Thanks for your review, Yardley. We're glad you enjoyed our famous view and appreciate your feedback!
Food was delicious and we loved watching the happenings out the window. Such a great place.
Thank you, we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed it!
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. We all loved
the fish and chip as it was recommended by many before us.
Definitely, we would return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly, and the view was just what we were looking for."
Eunsun, thank you so much for your kind review. It's great to hear that your entire family enjoyed the experience and we are thrilled to welcome you again in the future. Cheers!
View is beautiful but the food is just ok. The calamari taste frozen but the French onion soup is good. The fish and chips, the fish was heavily coated and could have more flavor.
Thanks for your review. We appreciate your feedback and apologize that you were disappointed.
Cosy place, very nice view combined with good service and food
Went for dinner. Very good food and a very friendly waiter. The view was stunning! Would definitely come back!
Thanks for your review, we're so glad you enjoyed it!

Wonderful service....great Margaritas too
Thank you for your review, we're glad you enjoyed your experience!
We stopped in after visiting the 9/11 memorial and museum. It was a bit difficult to find but well worth the search. The view of the water and Statue of Liberty in the distance was awesome. Every one of us ordered the crispy chicken sandwich with fries and we all loved it. It had great flavor and seasoning. The fries are thin and crispy. Our food came quickly and we were in and out in an hour. That being said this is the type of place I could sit for longer looking at the view and having drinks with friends.
Thank you very much for your kind review. We're delighted to hear that you all enjoyed our Crispy Chicken Sandwich and had a great experience. Happy Holidays!
Such a cozy and delicious dinner spot! Perfect all around, especially the view.
Thanks for your review, we're so glad that you had a great experience!
Amazing! Great views- great food and attentive service-
Thank you, so glad you enjoyed it!
Great place for a relaxing dinner with friends! Seeing the ships pass by on the Hudson is a bonus!
Thanks for your review, we're so happy to hear you enjoyed it!
It was amazing! The view is out of this world and the food matches.
Thank you for your kind review, we're so happy to hear that you had a wonderful experience!
Service was terrible. We were sat right beside the hostess station, and it was like we were invisible. Was at least 15 minutes before we were asked about ordering. Had our orders ready, including drinks. Food came out quickly, but hadn’t yet been presented our pitcher of beer before food arrived.
When our server finally asked how we were, we wanted to comment, but she turned around so quickly she didn’t know we were unhappy with one of the plates.
The signature burger was great, but the fish on the fish and chips plate was soggy and not good at all. Very disappointing. It was the busboy that notices something was wrong, had our server come back. The fish was taken off our bill, but had we been asked sooner maybe it could have been fixed.
Definitely disappointing and I wouldn’t recommend.
We're sorry that you had a disappointing experience, this is not reflective of out typical service level. I will DM you to learn more.
We had a great Thanksgiving meal. Beautiful view and perfect time of day-we got to watch the sunset. Food was good and service was great!
Thanks for your review, we're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving meal at Merchants River House!
Great view of New York harbour and very good service. Overall great experience.
Thank you, so glad you enjoyed it!
Beautiful view, amazing food, just overall great ambiance!
Thank you, hope to see you again!
We loved the burgers, and after an initial confusion the service was very good and we felt welcome with our 11 month old baby
Florence, thank you for your review. We're delighted to hear that you had a good experience.

Very good service and food was delicious! Loved the view!
Logan, thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed it!
Very touristy. Probably good for a drink after work, not dinner.
Thanks for your review, Emma. We welcome all customers, locals and visitors. Happy Holidays.
Fabulous location, calm atmosphere, good food, fabulous, helpful hostess. If near the World Financial center and want someplace special and away from the hustle bustle, I would recommend this restaurant.
Thanks for your review Nancy. We're so glad you had a great experience!
NYC food tour
Glad you enjoyed!
Beautiful views of the Hudson and the Statue of Liberty in the distance! Excellent service!
Thanks for your review! Happy to hear you enjoyed the views and service!
Rubbery chicken dish. Noisy ventilation in the corner where they sat us. We’ve tried to give the place a chance multiple times, and now we’ve lost our patience.
We’re sorry to hear about your experience. We work hard to keep our food and service standards high and hate to hear that we disappointed a guest. We will look into it right away.
Probably the best Fish and Chips in North America, and I’m a Brit
Wow, we'll take that compliment any day. Thank you for your review!
This is one of my favorite spots in the city. Always a fantastic experience!
Thank you, Logan. Hope to see you again!
I picked merchants river house for the view, but was positively surprised by the quality of the food and wine.
Thank you, Mr. King - glad to hear we surpassed your expectations!
I have heard, "The better the view, the worse the food", but that was not the case here. It is a wonderful view of the river and the skyline of Jersey City. The food was solid, and reasonably priced for a good dinner in NYC. The service was very good too. I would recommend it.
Thank you for your review. Thrilled to hear our food and service exceeded your expectations.
The Merchants River House was not fancy but fine for meeting a friend for a bite to eat. We both had the mussels in white wine with toasted bread spread with a lemon butter. Very tasty and manageable serving size. It was quite loud, making it difficult to have conversation. And it was pouring that night so the view (which is why many recommend) was hampered. Overall, nice meal.
Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your meal and we'll certainly keep your feedback regarding noise level in mind.
Food over rated for the price.
