    First, it's located on *Rump Links property--Uber driver almost gave up trying to find it. Second, you walk through a golf apparel store to get to the Bar w/a seating area, and around the side to get to the outside patio. They really do need better signage, or perhaps not as everything else was great. The food, the drinks, the service and the ambiance were all just fabulous. Wish they had a bigger menu, but, for a nice dinner outdoors with a nice view, it was great.

    I eat strictly kosher food. My guests seemed to enjoy their meals, but I couldn't eat anything. Very little vegetarian offerings. When I booked reservation I put in the special requests field to see if they can order in a special kosher meal (as most high end restaurants in NYC can make that accommodation). No one even bothered to reach out to me one way or the other before I arrived. I figured for $1,000 day for me and my foursome I could have received a call (and maybe even a complimentary locker instead of hitting me up for another $25). Ambiance and view was nice.

    I have eaten here before and I love the ambiance. My tuna poke and oysters were delicious. The dessert was subpar and my friend’s dessert was burnt at the bottom. The server took it off our bill, which was appreciated. I feel that I had to keep requesting water from other servers passing by and our server, although very nice, at times took too long to check in after we finished eating. It was not a busy day and not quite sure why this was the case.

    The Waterfront NYCResponded on July 17, 2022Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We sincerely apologize about your dessert being burnt and appreciate you bringing the lack of server attentiveness to our attention. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and in this instance it was clearly lacking, which will be addressed immediately. We hope to have you back in the near future!

    What a beautiful spot! We dined on the outside terrace, with views of the golf greens and sailboats floating down the bay. Peaceful and serene. Excellent attentive service, mediocre and over priced food, but one goes there for the view, not the dining.

We had dinner outside and the food and service were amazing! The view was an additional bonus! We will definitely be going back and my husband is planning a golf day as well.

    The waitress was lovely and professional. The eating hall is nice and open with a nice water view. The food however is equivalent to a high-end deli. It’s nothing creative or particular unique tasting. It is average food at extremely high prices. I got the shrimp cocktail with a side of Caesar salad, husband got cubano sandwich with fries (he didn’t even finish the sandwich cause it was so-so), we shared the meatballs (these were like out of a bag and reheated with prego sauce). One soda, seltzer, beer (serviced only in cans with a massive bar at their disposal!), and cocktail all of which cost $130 usd! Not remotely worth the trek to the location.
