    This is the best view of NY Harbor, with boats and fisherman and the Statue of Liberty right in front of you. The newly remodeled place also offers delicious food. Our server was friendly, kept our drinks refilled and the appetizers were quite good. The burrata was really fresh. Nice quality fish, not inexpensive but really tasty. We had a banana split sundae for dessert and a final cocktail at comfy sofas right overlooking the water.

    The bartenders were really nice, I got there right when it opened so I understand the kitchen needs a bit of time to open - I'm just a bit sad I didn't finish because the avocado toast was so good from the bit that I got to have before running to my ferry.

    I’m afraid we never actually ate here. We left before ordering. We were seated outside and the very loud music, smokers, and wind drove us to find another eatery.

    My wife and I enjoyed brunch. We both ordered omelets. It came to the table fairly quickly. It was nicely presented in a yellow half-moon shape. Stuffed with fresh diced red peppers, onions, and goat cheese. Outstanding! Great harbor views. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is substantial. There is also a large outdoor bar with seating as well. Not all tables outside are shaded. After being placed at a table with no shade, we asked the maitre ‘d for a shaded table, no problem. The staff was pleasant and eager to please. The bill took awhile to arrive. They may be short staffed. I'd definitely would come here again.

    We go to The View often. It’s one of the few places in the area you can count on to have availability Saturday evenings. A drawback for Saturdays is that they’re usually hosting a wedding reception, which makes much of the property inaccessible to regular diners. This time they had an outside area on the east side available, as well as an adjacent indoor area. We asked to sit in indoor area, but quickly discovered that it had no air conditioning, so on this hot evening, we asked to be moved to the outdoor area, which turned out to be shaded and quite pleasant. The food was good as usual, and the service started well, with the server promptly taking our order and delivering our food. Oddly, we had long delays with all three stages of taking care of our check: bringing it to our table (even after we requested it), picking up our credit card, and bringing back the charge slip and credit card. At each of the three stages, our server was very apologetic for each delay, but offered no explanations. It’s possible it was more a management failure (distracting the server with other duties) than an individual server failure, but we don’t know.

    The experience was all over the place from under cooked fish to neglect from the wait staff. Our original waiter never came to the table, but the replacement who realized we had not been taken care of was A++. Overall the experience was good and bad, it was all over the place.

    We were seeking a pleasant place for Easter brunch, and we hit the jackpot with The View at Battery Park. We enjoyed a happy and unrushed meal. The staff were universally delightful, friendly, efficient and dedicated to ensuring that we got exactly what we needed. The food was excellent, creative and beautifully prepared and presented. The setting, looking out over the Hudson River was stunning. We ate inside due to the cold weather, but we can't wait to come back when it is warmer to sit on the outside patio. What a treasure! And oh, BTW I don't drink, but I swear the amazing cocktail menu made me really wish that I did.

    We had one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever had at a restaurant here. We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant was almost empty. There were only 2 or 3 other tables occupied. It took probably 10 or 15 minutes for our server to come over to take our order. We ordered appetizers and main courses, but no drinks, just water. We didn’t get any food until 7:15, when both our appetizers and main courses came out at the same time. I’ve never had this happen before, and if we hadn’t been going to a show that started at 8:15 I may have sent our main courses back so we would have some time between courses. So I ended up eating my pasta main first and then my salad after. My husband had his soup first and ate his burger second. The food was actually quite good. But as I said, what kind of place does this? And the place was practically empty. We had a table with a great view of the Statue of Liberty. The servers were nice but didn’t check on our table to see if we needed anything. We had to flag them down to get more water a couple times.

    I couldn’t tell you. There was a miscommunication somewhere… Open Table made reservations for us, but the restaurant was closed for a private party when we arrived. They blamed Open Table, saying that the service “screwed up and didn’t get the memo”. I don’t know if that’s true, or if the restaurant failed to notify Open Table of their event. Either way, my family and I were left scrambling for a place to hav dinner before our tickets for the Holiday Lights cruise on Circle Line cruises. I was very disappointed in the screw up.

    We had our wedding at Battery Gardens, the former name of the View at Battery Park. This was our first time returning here for our anniversary after they changed ownership. We were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were incredible!!! They knew it was our anniversary so they immediately brought us some sparkling wine. The wait staff were very attentive, friendly, and provided good recommendations. The manager even stopped by to say hi. The presentation of the food was top notch and the taste was excellent! We loved everything that we ordered (fish tacos, salmon, shrimp fettuccine, and lava cake). We were also very impressed with the renovations that they did. The old owners had let the restaurant show its age, but the new owners made the place look brand new again. We will definitely be returning!

    Several co-workers and our wives happened to be in the area coming off the Seastreak terminal near Battery Park and were looking for a place we could all eat a meal together before going our separate ways. Here is the good: Nice atmosphere overlooking the Statue of Liberty, nice, quiet ambiance, and nicely appointed décor. Waiter was polite, but seemed inexperienced Here is the not so good: Waiter didn't know what Captain Morgan Rum was, restaurant did not have any kind of white soda, like Sprite, Sierra Mist, or 7-Up to mix with drinks. Salmon was overcooked and didn't have a great flavor. My wife's shrimp pasta dish lacked flavor of any kind. The rest of my group didn't rave, but didn't complain about their food, one had a hamburger, two had shrimp cocktail, and the other had the Salmon, and said it was just ok. Admittingly, my wife and I would consider ourselves "Foodies". We probably should have been concerned when they had an open table in NYC for 6 at 6:45pm on a Saturday night. Would not recommend and will not return. Kudos to the workers for being there to try and make an honest living.
