Finding the restaurant is confusing as the entrance looks like a clothing store to play golf. Inside the restaurant the ambience felt a bit stuffy. But once we were seated outside the view is gorgeous! Hidden gem. Good and service was good! I’d recommend this place. FYI it’s a Trump establishment so don’t let politics stop you from going.

The view was spectacular and we had a beautiful day to enjoy outside seating. That added to our lunch. The service was beyond slow. We order one beer, a pizza and a burger, no special requests. The water and napkins came right away. My husband order the beer and burger.The beer came first and then the burger. Good.
No pizza. So my husband ate alone, while I waited and waited and waited. I picked at the fries. I don't eat burgers. He was almost finished when the pizza came with a million apologies( the pizza was backed up, so she said). The place wasn't packed. So my husband asked her for another beer. ( remember it's a can) He waited and waited while I ate my pizza. Never came. We reminded the waitress. I was finished, and so was he when she walked over with the can. ( not even a new plastic cup). We declined the beer since we ate our food. She was surprised and said the bar was busy. @#$%^&*().
If Donald knew this he'd be infuriated. I gave the place three stars because the pizza and burger were good and the outside seating/ view added to the stars.

Won’t go back but it’s nice. Overload on dressing. Waiter took long to come. Just nice ambience. Wings were not good. Not a place to go to eat but perhaps take pictures outside.

The service was amazing! The view spectacular! Pizza was great everyone needs to try but the chicken and waffles was not great, chicken was raw inside and the waffles was not all that. I would recommend this place because the service was exceptional.

Beautiful clubhouse and seating area. Outdoor patio was covered and provides spectacular views of the Throgs Neck and Whitestone bridges. Service was very good and food was tasty. More suited to lunch than dinner. One suggestion, since the outdoor area is not screened in, once the sun sets the mosquitos come out in droves. Everyone was moving inside once it got dark out.

I really enjoyed myself. You could tell they were understaffed but the staff that was there was absolutely personable and pleasant. There were a good number of bees buzzing around us and our food,which made it uncomfortable at times but overall the environment was beautiful. The food was absolutely delicious.

The place is certainly plush enough and the views are splendid. The wife and I shared a truffle mushroom personal pizza that was heavenly. We also shared a top shelf rib eye and went home with leftovers of both. (Being Seniors, we just can't eat like we once could.) The cocktails were mediocre, but the pear tart desert was delicious. The food, views and desert get straight A's. The young staff are pleasant and accommodating, but inexperienced and certainly not commensurate with the check which was eye-popping since, for the most part, we shared a dinner. I should have demanded a detailed bill which was not provided. For those reasons, the staff gets a generous C rating. We will go back because the of the ambiance and location, but will know enough to prevent a reoccurrence of the sub-par stuff. Recommendations are with reservations

It's one of the best water tangent restaurant locations in New York City. Number one, there's parking! The food is mixed - some items are very good, others are good enough. But the reason to go, is the ambience, there is a wonderful outdoors eating area. I don't know what happens in the winter but it is really a lovely location if the weather is good. The service is fine.

My overall experience was a great one. I did, however, have to ask a different server for a refill of water and I would have preferred if my appetizer and main course did not come out at the same time. These are minor inconveniences for an otherwise positive experience. The server did take both our drink and food orders in a timely fashion and the food was delicious.

I came to the waterfront for an anniversary with my wife. The setting was amazing, with a friendly staff, and delicious food. I ordered the salmon which was cooked to perfection and my wife ordered the Steak which she ordered medium and came with just the right amount of pink and was seasoned well. 10/10 highly recommend the waterfront

View was awesome, food was delicious, old fashioned cocktail was superb, and the waiter was not only a combat F-18 naval pilot, but a high school science teacher, and a total professional waiter. How much better can you get? And all in a Trump owned club. Loved the experience.

Gorgeous views. We were disappointed with menu, but were pleasantly surprised with the quality and presentation of our dishes. Service was the worst experience we have had in a couple of years. Long story short after four requests our drinks arrived 35 minutes after we ordered with only three tables sat: our appetizers 50 minutes after we ordered and our main dishes 1 hour and five minutes after we ordered and the manager was the most arrogant non addressing human being we could imagine. (Please fire this joke of a human being after this experience). When our food finally came, they did not serve my husband’s plate and comped his dish which arrived one hour and 15 minutes after our arrival with a total of eight tables in the entire restaurant. Aside from our horrible service experience, the food was excellent and a big surprise considering who was hired to serve there.

The food just mediocre. Salmon bowl, was very disappointing- mediocre-saturated in dressing which just tasted salty. Chicken club was poor. Roll was stale, like a hamburger roll. Eggs and steak- potatoes were cold on both orders and steak was mediocre at best. Drinks were great! Service was great!
