    Really like this place but service was slow and wasn’t great especially considering it was quiet and “the view” is massively obscured by the Statue of Liberty security tent. Food was good and wouldn’t stop me going back but if it was my first time I would be disappointed and service could have been better regardless of the obscured view

    They promote a beautiful view but unfortunately this was not available due to them having an event. This (the fact that I’d have no view) was not disclosed to me until 1 hour before dinner when it was too late to change my plans. I feel that this should have been disclosed.

    If you are in lower Manhattan and in need of a place to stop, have a drink, snack or meal, than you should visit The View at Battery Park. Located at the very end of Manhattan in Battery Park, The View at Battery Park offers the most picturesque views of the NY harbor. Yes, there is construction around currently but you can still get stunning views from inside the restaurant. Beyond the views (of course, the namesake of the place), the menu is contemporary American food, with seasonal and creative/inventive takes on classics. For drinks I have tried the blackberry bramble (twist on a whiskey smash) and the pinky promise (think Barbie meets Singapore Sling - complete with shanken egg white foam) - both delish. My party of four enjoyed the crab cake app and the watermelon salad with prosciutto - that could have been a meal! We also had the gem lettuce caesar to start. The entrees - bone-in pork chop, shrimp linguine, and halibut - were all cooked perfectly. We were full after all this but had to try dessert. One person at the table cited a lactose intolerance and so the staff brought out a delish raspberry sorbet. And the rest shared the banana bread pudding, complete with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. We had a rather large meal and enjoyed every bit! You could easily make this into a cocktail stop to try out the fun drink menu, maybe add an app, if you've got plans for tourism around the area or dinner elsewhere. While we sat in the inside dining area, The View also offers garden seating as well as a fun backyard beer garden.

    I'd like to give a more glowing review, but despite the friendly staff and relatively reasonable pricing, the food was heavy with salt and the view of the river is obstructed by some sort of construction going on. Perhaps that's a temporary situation. Other than that, nice place

    Although the food was ok and service good- it really didn’t have the views described on their site. It was too hot outside to sit in the sun so we sat inside. The ambiance was nice but you didn’t have any water views from the first floor dining area!

    Went to The View at Battery Park for lunch, and had a great experience. The space is so beautiful. The halibut was delicious, and the banana bread pudding just out of this world. My server Ava and the entire team were all so wonderful. An excellent dining option in lower Manhattan for tourists and New Yorkers alike.

    Great place for brunch with a very nice view of Hudson and statue of liberty. Hostess was warm and welcoming and made sure we had a table with a view. Food was also amazing and we really enjoyed our Sunday brunch with live music in the background. A good place for couples and family.

Food phenomenal this bread with pepperoni, arugula was to die for. Burgers great and that chicken sandwich. Compliments to the chef. Food 10/10 view 2/10

    If you go expecting a great view, think again. Construction clocks the view and the one area that had a view was blocked for a private party. The food is ok. Service wasn’t bad. The drink menu was limited in terms of beer selection.

    My husband and I visited our daughter in NY and took her to The View restaurant for her birthday. We sat outside at the side of the building since the entire outdoor section next to the water was closed. The view of the Statue of Liberty was obstructed by what looked like a large construction barge. The day was sunny and beautiful and there weren’t a lot of people, so it was quiet. The service was not great. We had to go inside twice to remind them of what we had asked for. The food was pretty good, but just ordinary level ingredients and presentation for fairly high prices. All in all, an average to below average meal and experience. And no view at The View.

    Had our anniversary dinner before attending a play in midtown . The food and atmosphere was great. We got married here 4 years ago and have been coming for our anniversary dinner. We didn’t get any complimentary champagne or happy anniversary written on our dessert HU h was a bit disappointing. The establishment is under new management. The mussels , shrimp cocktail , veal ragu pasta and steak were delightful
