Came here for my birthday from out of town and it did not disappoint. Started with the half dozen oysters and a glass of champagne recommended by the SOM. She was so friendly and pleasant. The oysters were great. Moved on to the main course, I had the seared halibut and my boyfriend had the Peking duck. Both dishes were absolutely fantastic and expertly paired with a glass of wine by the SOM. Ended the night with dessert and a glass of port. We had the milk and cereal and the waffle cone and they were excellent. Not too rich but the flavor was so savory. We will definitely be back here for the amazing food and above par service for our next stay in New York!

Riverpark is a special place. It is particularly great when the outdoor seating is available because the views of the City and East River are stunning. The menu changes by season, and ingredients are sourced locally, including some from the farm right next to the restaurant in Manhattan!

Great experience with dinner and amazing food but our one complaint was that there was only one bartender on a Saturday night, catering to the whole restaurant including the bar. I felt bad even asking for a drink since he was really working hard to keep up with the orders. They should really have two bartenders. Other than that, this was a great restaurant with fantastic food and we would definitely return again. Hopefully won't have to wait too long for a drink next time.

We adore Riverpark and it is always at the top of our list for Birthday celebrations, visitors in town, or just a delightful evening out for two. The food is reliably delicious and the service always excellent.

We had one small issue with noise, a very loud sound track playing that made it a bit hard to hear. Management did kindly turn it down at our request.

Visited riverpark for my boyfriends birthday. We had an amazing seat where we could see LIC and the east river. Very good service and atmosphere. Modern and clean. Wasnt crazy about the long island bream for 2 but the pasta dish we ordered was very good. The table next to us got a complimentary dessert for birthday but we did not recieve one otherwise wouldve given 5 stars for food.

We had a great time at Riverpark. We were celebrating my wife's birthday. I especially liked the welcome glass of sparkling wine for the birthday and the printed birthday menu Riverpark gives to go. Dushan, the sommelier was an amazing host who shared with us the vast wine knowledge he has. We are definitely looking forward to coming back here.

We were a party of 10, welcomed with a beautiful table. The wait staff was attentive and didn’t rush us. We loved their Peeko oysters, raw, and as well as fried in corn meal. All of our dishes were delicious and delightfully presented. We were not seated on the waterfront, all of those tables are smaller, but we walked around and enjoyed the stunning views of the river at night.

This place is hip and chic without being pretentious or overcrowded. Very nice design and ambiance, great service, and most importantly -- delicious food that to some extent is sourced from the adjacent urban garden. Came here for a business dinner and absolutely loved it! A bit off the beaten path, which is another reason to go.

Food was amazing and all the vegetables were home grown. The service was excellent and the staff were very attentive.

The wine list although extensive was missing a household favourite. (Argentinian Malbec). When seated outside it would be good if there were blankets or wraps available as it can get chilly.

Overall a great evening and would definitely recommend.

I am from London and I booked the Riverpark for my boyfriend's birthday dinner - due to some unforeseen circumstances, we arrived at the restaurant hours later than the booked time slot. Not only was Riverpark very accommodating, they were also very understanding that we weren't able to enjoy a 3-course meal (as it was late then), and did their best to make it a memorable and special occasion for us. The food was great, service impeccable and the views were lovely. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Was looking for a reasonably quiet place for a Friends/Business dinner I was hosting and this was perfect.
Very attentive service, excellent food and wine. Noise was moderate - just right, and even then, when a slightly louder group appeared at the bar next to our table (we hadn't even noticed or said anything related to noise in advance), the manager came by to apologize for the increased noise level and explained they'd offered the group to move to another area! A first!
Very happy my friend from here recommended.
