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.

I go here once a month for lunch. Great drinks and the view is perfect. Great outside and inside space. Never had a bad time. Service sometimes is a little slower than I like. But for most people it is perfect. I'm a little impatient lol.

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!

Brought my mother and girlfriend here for a birthday dinner. The service was A++++ and the food was out of this world ! Highly recommend the Gold Label Burger. It was cooked to perfection (I ordered Med Rare). The server was very accommodating and his smile was infectious. The drinks were priced well and were strong. I highly recommend the Waterfront Nyc for everyday dining or any special occasion !

Your server Nichole messed up our checks and then tried to pressure me to pay her an additional tip after I just tipped her really good and after she messed up our orders.Not ok or professional, very money hungry and greedy, need to get it together.
