I took my daughter for her 21st birthday breakfast. We loved everything about it. The food was perfect, the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed.
The entire experience was wonderful- food, service & atmosphere. Outstanding experience.
When I made the reservation, opentable didn’t say that we could only be seated if we order brunch menu. The availability is 2pm so when I made the reservation, I thought I could have something for lunch first and go to The River Cafe to celebrate my husband’s birthday by ordering their signature Brooklyn Bridge Cake and other desserts and have some drinks while we enjoy the river view. I was totally wrong. After I was seated and when the waiter knew that I was going to order desserts directly, we were asked to sit outside at the bar...this is horrible and impolite not to mention this is my husband’s birthday. They should make it very clear on Opentable before I make reservation. Disappointed and awkward... maybe won’t go to this restaurant anymore.
One of the best meals we have enjoyed in a long time. The service was top notch and the views were expansive. We enjoyed the brunch menu so much we are making plans to return for dinner!
Sixth time here and the place we got engaged. It’s expensive as you would expect but worth every cent. We will be back
Unbelievable setting for a restaurant. With food and drink to match.
This night was absolutely spectacular! Pricey but worth it. Views, decor and food was amazing. For sure 5 star rating.
There’s no finer view, we had a window seat and the Brooklyn Bridge was just overhead and the East arrived ver vista directly ahead.
The initial greet was warm and friendly and this level of service rang through the entire meal
The lunchtime menu was inspiring and the quality of the dishes was sublime (strongly recommend the vintage daiquiri as a warm up to your meal)
This restaurant is a must visit!!
Excellent food and drinks, awesome place and unbelievable staff and service. The gifted us the menu as a souvenir for our fifth marriage anniversary!
This is my favorite restaurant in NYC. This was my second time, I brought my sister and her husband and they were impressed!
Beautiful setting, staff very attentive. Food was very good and enjoyed the whole experience! Couple next to us got engaged - if you’re gonna do it... go here!
Really enjoyed our breakfast, will come again for dinner! Will recommend. Stunning location and staff were excellent
It’s a lovely restaurant overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
Welcoming and friendly from start to finish. Food is exquisite and as close to perfection as you would expect from a one star restaurant. Stunning views of the city at night which complements the atmosphere.
What a fabulous place! Came from Cleveland and was on bucket list, did not disappoint. Better than pictures show. Attentive staff, alot of staff actually. Only complaint is my chair kept getting bumped by all that staff who serviced the table adjacent to our four top ( bench seating against wall).
A beautiful atmosphere decorTedfor holidays. Everyone loved their food, excellent wine selection. Glad we went, thanks.
Elegance personified. Superb service. Inspired menu. Incredible views. One of the top dining experiences we’ve had; anywhere. Our sincere compliments to all staff for an evening we will long remember.
Super disappointed with our experience here.
Booked a breakfast table for 11:15 and, as tourists in the city, we got slightly lost finding our way there. I rang at 11:10 to say we were running ten minutes late and got told that the kitchen stops serving at 11:30 so if I wasn’t there before then that was that. Considering it’s a highly touristic spot you’d think the staff would be considerate and warn you of this in advance.
Got there flustered and gave our name and before we even got to the table, my husband was told to take his hat off with a blunt manner.
We sat down anxious about ordering as we had been told it was a strict 11:30 cut off and after waiting 10 minutes, actually had to ask for the menu to be brought to us.
We ordered two coffees and two eggs on toast with bacon and the bill came to $90. I understand it is a high end spot but the portion sizes weren’t great, the scrambled egg was average and paying $14.50 for a small cappuccino seems ridiculous.
After the disappointing food, we were at least looking forward to the view out the front of the restaurant which we had seen customers enjoying when we arrived.
I went to walk through and was told there was cleaning going on so we couldn’t even make use of the view after all that!! The hostess was in no way apologetic and made no attempt to offer an alternative.
The overall atmosphere is pretentious, the food is disappointing and with that, extremely overpriced.
I wouldn’t recommend.
Volveremos como todos los años.!!
The setting is spectacular, but it is also a fine restaurant with stellar service, very good food choices that were well prepared and presented, and an overall ambiance that is casual yet refined. Though expensive, it was not as costly as many restaurants in NYC, and to me well worth the price.
There are few places to dine this well with so magnificent a view and such perfect service. It comes at a price so you need to be prepared for the $150 pp charge that gets you a choice of appetizer, main course and dessert. But for that you’ll get food prepared as artfully as possible and served by waitstaff who have their craft down to a science. If great wines are your thing, you’ll drool at the contents of the cellar. Watching the lights of Manhattan shimmer on the water is the ultimate topping. Not to be missed at least once in a lifetime.
tutto eccellente nulla da dire: prezzo adeguato all’eccellenza del posto!
This is the place to celebrate a special occasion. The atmosphere and the scenery are simply spectacular.
This restaurant is a New York institution and should not be missed. We have returne - as out of towners p many times and still consider it most reliable as to food, ambience and service.
Too expensive for the overall.
Sorry, i’m French 😉
Great food and ambiance. This was our first Michelin star restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. We will be back. Staff was excellent as well.
A perfect setting in NYC for a special dinning experience, have been for dinner and lunch always delivers perfection.
It’s as wonderful as you expect and it was every bit the special 30th birthday experience I wanted for my daughter. Service was amazing all the food was great although I didn’t care for the texture of the onion omelet didn’t feel like eggs. Otherwise everyone at the table loved everything. One complaint. If you’re going to have a dress code and remind me about it over and over again then enforce it. I was very disappointed to see a couple in their 50’s in jeans next to us. Don’t given in!! Hold on to the fancy nature and experience. I wouldn’t have let them dine.
Amazing place - Beautiful views of New York
The food is unbelievable and so is the service
Wow, quelle expérience remarquable! Tout était parfait! Le nourriture était si savoureuse, bien au delà de nos attentes. La vue est tellement magnifique et si romantique. L'accueil était chaleureux et tous les membres du personnel étaient soucieux de répondre à nos moindres attentes. Tout au long de la soirée, nous sous sommes sentis privilégiés de vivre ce moment unique et mémorable! Merci pour cet instant de pur bonheur!
I love the atmosphere - simple as that!
So when the service and the food is good, it becomes perfect!
Posto perfetto ottima location servizio gentile e premuroso ottima cucina.
Lovely ambiance overlooking lower Manhattan across the river, fine dining that will fill your stomach, excellent wine, and perfect service.Our tradition whenever we come to NYC.
It was our anniversary lunch. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we had a table right by the window—amazing view of the river, bridge and skyline.
We have eaten at the River Cafe in the past but the food was even better than we remembered. Everything was delicious!
Our only “complaint” was that the wine by the glass was expensive but it was also very good.
Overall the whole experience was wonderful.
We had a lovely, delicious meal. Wait staff was very professional, food presentation was beautiful and tasted delicious. A very memorable meal.
This was the Third Time I sent. It is better each time ! The venue is outstanding, thé personnel Carina and profesional. The food is excellent and the wine list covers any desire.
I will come back !
Good service plus valet parking was a good add on
Atención de primera, de principio a fin. La comida una experiencia Regresaré.
Amazing food; amazing service. Doesn’t get much better!
