The View unfortunately lost their tent in a windstorm and had already put their patio umbrellas in storage for the season. So on our last few sunny days in the mid-70’s it won’t be so pleasant on the patio.

The upside of losing the tent is that the view from the inside seating area is nicer, and the inside seating area is very well appointed and comfortable and appropriately spaced.

The View at Battery Park is well named. The patio has a great view of New York harbor, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It also gets great sunshine most of the day. They also have an indoor dining area we haven’t tried yet, but looks very elegant. It’s a little out of the way, but worth it.

An ideal setting with an iconic view -- the new company that took over has transformed the space and upgraded the food to make it one of the easiest places to dine during this pandemic. The staff goes beyond to make it easy, safe and welcoming.

Service is very bad. It took a long tike before we were able to order. Then I told the female server that its my cousin’s birthday and if we can have a candle on a dessert cake we will order. 30 mins later, they served us desserts with no candle.
We have to call several times to get drinks. The area is so dark, we can hardly see what we are eating.
The food is good pricey for the value. Very ordinary, calamari is so salty.
I wont recommend this place to anyone anytime soon.

Beautiful evening of great food, starry skies and that terrific view.
Very festive atmosphere with some birthdays being celebrated and our Caesar salads with grilled shrimp were crispy and delicious.

The View at Battery Park is a wonderful, if semi-hidden, restaurant with a great view of New York harbor and the Statue of Liberty. They have a spacious patio and have great food and service, and I understand they are getting heaters for their outdoor patio, so they can continue to use it even as it gets colder. They also have a great setup for indoor dining that they’ll be able to use when it becomes allowed on September 30.

Kudos to Masterpiece Caterers, who took over a deteriorating restaurant formerly known as Battery Gardens and made it into something NYC can be proud of.

I loved this place. The view was breathtaking. My significant other loved it! Social distancing was in effect. Waiters all wore gloves and masks. It was great. Their calamari was to die for! Will definitely revisit!

This place has a lot of potential however is poorly managed. The food is inconsistent, the wait staff confused, the cocktails, mediocre. Although we had a reservation and arrived on time, we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated and another 10 to get a menu. There were plenty of open tables yet we were not seated where we had requested. My prediction is that The View will become a place largely for the bridge and tunnel folk not neighborhood people as it lacks professionalism and quality.

We used to go to Battery Gardens Restaurant for the view, but then Masterpiece Caterers bought them out and created The View at Battery Park, which is even better. We’ve gone there almost every week since they’ve opened with only an outdoor grill as a kitchen, and they’ve kept improving ever since. They now have a full kitchen instead of a grill, and a large tent, which is good for shade as well as a few raindrops. Much better than eating on the street!
