Best brunch in town
I always have a great time at VISTAMAR! Great food! Great Price! And the service is like no other!
The Best Restaurant EVER...the food is great and the staff are very polite and professional
The only thing me and my company didn’t like was the fact that the music was so loud we had to scream at each other to hear ourselves. Other than that it was fabulous
Always enjoy Vistamar, good food, great service & fun ambiance, beautiful view! I was disappointed to miss the buffet, only on Sunday
Everything’s was beautiful, the view, the band was my favorite part. The service was excellent. Our server was Jose. Very friendly guy. Very attentive.
Great service. Amazing food and drinks
Amazing, music was a little too loud for dinner but over all was amazing
Planned for a large party 20+ people for my aunts birthday. Excellent customer service. A lot of food, enough to fill everyone up. Even the family style appetizers were filling. Great music and drinks. Really enjoyed! Will return and recommend
Wonderful restaurant. I loved the ambiance, decor, service, valet. The food was delicious and the menu excellent. Our waiter, Jose, was excellent! I wish I had known the portions were very large and would not have ordered as much food. However, I ate the leftovers the next day and it was just as delicious. I had a great experience and will definitely return.
It was my birthday 🎂 and Omar was amazing as per usual! Thanks vistamar for being so accommodating🤗 see you guys soon
Food is bland and lacks seasoning. Drinks are strong but not flavorful. Service was decent but probably won't be back here until the food improves.
We went here for their Sunday brunch buffet. It was good but being that it was in City Island, I was really hoping to see more seafood. There were a lot of meat dishes and an omelette station, but hardly any seafood. I enjoyed the bottomless mimosas and the beautiful waterfront views. Would like to return but probably for a regular dinner.
The best restaurant in the Bronx.. Great food service and music..
The view, food, and service were all great! My boyfriend and I shared the paella dish. We were a little disappointed that when we ate the rest of our food the next day both of our lobsters had very little to no meat in them. We live in Connecticut so we weren’t able to do much about that. I’m not exactly sure how that happened.
Friendly, casual. Clean, and superb! Great food, great service, drinks were delicious, food was filling, wonderful view!
Vistamar was exceptional for the dinner party I hosted. From booking to dessert. The customer service was exceptional. My whole entire party was late and they were still able to accommodate me. They allowed us to bring balloons and decorate. They made personalized menus for our event. The decor, the ambiance, the music, the food, the staff... everything exquisite!
It was a great time , went for my Fiancés 21st bday . Went early around 5pm and it was Quiet.. great food also .
Had an amazing time at Vistamar. Went for my mom’s birthday. Had a choice of sitting outside or inside. Chose inside and it was a great choice. Amazing view overlooking the water. Food was absolutely amazing. Well worth the money. Music was a mix of Afrobeats and Spanish. Nice ambience.
Good environment and decent size plates. I would recommend for families.
We had an amazing time. The food was amazing and the photographer was amazing he dance with us the whole night lol . We will be going back again.
I like it the food was good and i will came back with family
The service was great, the staff at Vista Mar is really attentive and accommodating. Our reservation was for a party of 10 and 8 out of the 10 people were half an hour late, but they were still able to seat us which is rare especially on a Saturday night. The food was pretty good, despite coming out very late due to an electrical issue at the restaurant. My only problem with the stay was the noise level. It was extremely loud to the point I have an earache from that day. In addition to the volume they seemed to have had a private event booked on the day we visited so you basically had two competing sets of speakers playing different songs at equally loud volumes at the same time. This meant that even if you didn’t mind the music you couldn’t really enjoy it unless you were far enough from one of the speaker sets that you could only hear one. Unfortunately for us we were seated right next to where the music from the private party was playing so we had no choice but to wait it out until the party finished. Vista Mar is more of a restaurant with a club atmosphere and I get that now but when I made the reservation I was just expecting to go to a restuarsnt. However if you want to go to a restaurant with a club atmosphere and don’t mind extremely loud music then it will be perfect for you.
Although the service was ok, the noise level was excruciating. The party next door was so loud that it surpassed the music in the dinning room. You could not have a conversation at the table. My wife mentioned to another worker to close the party room door and he ignored it.
I am not coming back to this dump.
Music was way to loud for dinner , I couldn’t hear the person across from me
I visited here on sunday which was also my bday with hubby, and I loved it it was amazing. The staff, food and view was amazing. I would definitely recommend VISTAMAR. Thank you
I had the broiled red snapper with shrimp and vegetables. It was amazing! Server was very amicable and professional.
We had reservations for 6:30pm got there about 15mims early and was seated right away. The food was great and the drinks were awesome, even my son’s chicken fingers (not your ordinary chicken finger) with rice and beans were great as well. I’ve been here a few times when it was Don coqui and everything is still great. I was celebrating my birthday so when my brownie came out with my sparkle candle they had a guy there to take pictures which is available for purchase. It even comes in a real frame.
The food was flavorful and everyone enjoyed their seafood dishes when they arrived. The service was a bit frustrating, our waitress stopped by a total of 3-4 times over two hours. I never had a chance to order a cocktail because she wasn’t attentive, they lost out on some add ons to our check because of that. It does get a bit loud when it’s birthday celebrations and they play music for each. I don’t think this crowd is for everyone - if you are looking for intimate and sophisticated this isn’t the restaurant for you. I didn’t hate it so if I had to go back I would, not a top pick for me on city island though.
Being here felt like being on vacation. While the service was slow and less than perfect, the wait staff was so pleasant and entertaining it was fine. The seafood salad was terrific. The view is fantastic. I would recommend as a place if you have the time to just hang out and watch a sunset and look at boats and look at the water.
Nice location. Tasty food. Huge portions! A paella for two will easily feed four.
Food was good and hot although buffet. Waffles made fresh. Please add strawberries to the fruit selection. Staff does a great job staying on top of food availability at buffet. Sangrias were good and our server was attentive and pleasant during our visit.
I requested a table by the water for a party of 6. I received a phone call advising that, that was not an option for a party my size. However when I got to the restaurant, there was definitely seating for a party of 6 and larger sitting at window seat facing the water. This was highly disappointing. Over all the food was good. The Buffet style was a little confusing as we weren't advised of this when we were seated and we had to figure this out on our own. Our waiter was very attentive. Other than small mishaps in the grand picture, I will be returning. This was not my first time at this restaurant and the food is always great and the service amazing.
The place was very nice an accommodating. Drinks were good and the food. Had a great time with my family. Will definitely go again.
My wife and son bought myself and my father for Father’s Day. The food was incredibly delicious!!! I will be coming back and highly recommend VISTAMAR!!!
Excellent service, staff and food
The churrasco I ordered didn’t look like a Churrasco. It was very dry with a leather like texture. The rice and maduros were also very dry as if they had been sitting out for a long time. The drinks were good and the ambiance was great. I’ve been here for brunch and loved it. They completely missed the mark on dinner.
Would have given this restaurant 5 stars if the hostess was a bit more friendly and welcoming. Overall food is good but they definitely need a staff make over.
