Went there for the Mother’s Day brunch. Wish I would’ve gotten there earlier. Seemed as if the deserts were gone and no filling them up again. If not for my great server I would’ve been super upset spending $65 per person and not being entitled to eat everything that was supposed to be offered.

Very nice experience! Didn't realize it was a buffet style for Mother's Day but the food was outstanding and the service was great! Very professional and friendly staff and managers. Clean and beautiful ambiance all around. Would definitely come back, but only on special occasions as it is quite pricey.

Took my grand mother and step mother for Mother’s Day dinner. The food and service were excellent, minimal food selection. Atmosphere is more sports club than fine dining. Also should say that the restaurant is located at Trump Links golf course.

Food was good....service could have been better. Sat at the table for 15 minutes without even being served a glass of water. Had to go the hostess to ask for our waiter/waitress. When she finally did appear....she was very nice.....but disappeared for long periods of time.

I had an amazing time at The Waterfront NYC! The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and the drinks were out of this world! I highly recommend The Waterfront, especially for a date night.

Service was an EPIC fail. Started off good, friendly hostess, seated promptly, went down hill once we were served our food. No one ever checked on us once our food was served, we were finished eating at least 15-20 minutes before our server ever came back. Took forever for table to cleared, and even then dirty plates and cups were left on the table. Server brought a refill on coffee and placed it on top of a dirty plate. Food was good, place is nice, but service was terrible. Plus, they charge for every refill on the coffee.

The view was lovely and the food and drinks were made well. I would have given 5 stars but the bill was brought without asking if my table wanted dessert. I would have preferred if we were asked prior to the bill being closed and brought out.

Beautiful scenery. Lovely view of the bridge, especially at night when it’s lit up. The food was good. The compound was quiet, but everyone still had their own fun whether it was golfing on the gold course or having their own family dinner. Our waiter was super nice and accommodating. I would probably go back in the summer when it’s warmer. Initially we had opted to dine outside but it quickly became too cold so everyone eventually moved inside. Would recommend and return

From the moment I walked in, I was met with Oscar’s warm, friendly, professional and humorous greeting. I knew then I would enjoy my evening. The service that we received from Brandon B. was impeccable from start to finish. He was friendly, pleasant, attentive, kind, and knowledgeable! His shared insight of the menu allowed us to have a wonderful meal. He went above and beyond to guarantee that we were satisfied with our dinner. Everything was amazing from the details in the drink (I had a cute rose made of ice in my drink- bartenders did an amazing job) to the main course. If you ever happen to find yourself at this location, I hope you get lucky to be seated with Brandon. He definitely made this such a wonderful experience for us. He has such a bright future and I can see him going far in the business!

went for a quiet water view dinner with my wife. Clubhouse was nice but loud rock music blasting as golfers came off the course. The menus was an jazzed up pub menu and food was salty. The service was shabby and were given bar napkins when our cloth napkin fell to the floor. go after golf....not for a date night
