    The atmosphere and view were fantastic. Esthetically pleasing dining experience. The food was overpriced and not overwhelmingly tasty. Meat portions not comparable to the price.

    My husband and I went to celebrate Father's day. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. The staff was very friendly and I had one of the best Cosmos I have ever had. 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.

    I hosted a brunch here with friends and family to celebrate my daughter's Communion. It is an absolute great brunch location nestled under the Whitestone Bridge. This place has an amazing view and ambiance! It is bright, clean, modern finishes. We forgot we were in the Bronx. My 7 year old said she felt like royalty being able to dine and celebrate here. Can't wait to go back!

    Disappointed with Easter buffet. It was very expensive for the offerings. Several food items were dried out. No one at the cravers station to help. Desserts limited to 2 kinds of cookies, brownies, candy or chocolate croissants. No option for non chocolate eaters.

    Had an amazing Valentines dinner with my girlfriend. Our server nick was delightful and provided insight on the dishes and the wine pairings. The courses we had were very fancy, the filet mignon with Foie gras was delish and the mahi mahi was seasoned well and perfectly paired with the Sauvignon blanc. Very excited to come and try the regular menu when it is available the coming weekends
