    Servers need to be trained better. It's a shame to have mediocre servers for a high-end restaurant in such an amazing location. NY restaurants in the best location need to be the best in service. Food and wine are not the best here either.

    This restaurant never disappoints. The service is always top notch and the food is good. A bit pricey but the quality and the location make it worthwhile-views like nowhere else in Manhattan in a gorgeous setting you cannot beat this for sunset cocktails or dinner on the patio.

    Ambiance is always great except for the rats in plain sight running in clear view of us while we were sitting outside in the back. That put a damper on our enjoying ourselves. zone of my colleagues said he would not o back because of all the visible rat activity right in front of us

    Let me start off by saying that the service at the bar I can’t give more than less than 1star. The service was horrible, the bartender was the most unfriendly person I’ve come across in a long time. The bar area is a filthy mess with weeds growing and filthy tables..The place itself looks like it should be condemned. There are weeds all over, tables look 100 yrs old , rusted and rotted..It’s falling apart. We ate outdoors, the view is beautiful but there are weeds growing in the planters which prevented us from having a better view than we could have, The service was very good I have no complaints about that, the waiters were very kind and helpful the food was decent, but would I ever come back absolutely not by the end of the meal we saw rats running around. I was disgusted. I brought my family thinking it was clean and as good as it was a few yrs ago and it was embarrassing. I think the best thing for this restaurant would be to close its doors and never reopen because it’s an embarrassment to the area.. the parking lot stunk of garbage, it was filthy. There is so much more I can say but at this point , there is nothing more that needs to be said. The place is a disgrace.

    We were celebrating a family milestone and decided to head to Battery Gardens for outdoor dining with the beautiful views of The Statue of Liberty. What we got (in addition to the views) was an outstanding meal that began with the seafood tower. Everything was delicious. Most of our table ordered the ribeye that was cooked to perfection while others ordered the sea bass and the duck. The service was quick, consultative and spot on. Everything was conducted to perfection under the watchful eye of “Uncle Paul”. Paul Nicaj is the owner who ensures that everything is done as he would do it himself. Wonderful place to have a dinner, drinks or an event while enjoying the sunset and watching the boats go by.

    I have been there a few times. The setting is lovely, overlooking the Hudson River with views of the Statue of Liberty. The interior space is crisp, clean, light with large windows. The outdoor space is equally lovely. The food was very good, as was the service. I recommend that you have dinner there around dusk, and enjoy the sunset. After eating a delicious meal and a glass or two of wine, make sure to stop by the SeaGlass Carousel, and enjoy the experience. It is to the right as you leave the restaurant. It is a perfect way to end a perfect evening.

    We were not told there was a wedding and were required to sit outside. It was gusty winds that evening. Part of our salads blew off the plates and a glass if wine was blown over in to the half eaten dinner. The waiter brought another glass of wine but charged for it!! We just gave up. The food was quite good, especially the scallops. But not at all a good experience.

    We had a lovely lunch at Battery Gardens outside on the patio to celebrate a team member's work anniversary. We were delighted to have the manager bring us dessert when we asked where the cake was even after we paid! It was a nice touch. (We were however surprised that a service charge was added to our bill and not mentioned specifically when it was delivered.)
