Excellent service and even better food and wine. Extensive wine list and timing. And the view. Spectacular
We had an amazing experience at the River Café for my birthday. They recently reopened with limited seating and a prix-fixe menu after being closed due to COVID-19, and they did a fantastic job implementing safety precautions and social distancing. The view of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge was stunning, the food was incredible and the service was top-notch. We will definitely be back.
One of my favorite places in nyc, very nice food and environment.
We came to The River Cafe to celebrate my 31st birthday. Totally overwhelmed by the views! We arrived a bit earlier than our reservation so we took a walk in the cute little garden they had. So magical and whimsical with little fairy lights. The service was excellent! They even had a little ottoman to put my purse on while we dined. The cocktails were fabulous and the food was superb. Perfect portions. They even moved our table to the front right by the water as soon as a table became available. Everything was fantastic and would definitely recommend!!
It was a beautiful early evening. It was elegant, beautiful, breathtaking, delicious.
Our dining experience at The River Cafe was nothing short of outstanding. Upon arriving, the vallet was courteous and prompt. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately at a lovely table with a breathtaking view of the water and lower manhattan. Our waiter was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable about all the dishes. The food was divine and we will certainly be back again.
My family and i took my mother for her bday, and the entire experience was amazing: great service, great food, great wine, great views, ambiance and accommodation!! We will definitely return for another special celebration :-) 😊
The location and ambiance is breathtaking. My husband and I enjoyed the food and service. They made our dining experience very special.
The staff was amazing, as was all the food. We were delighted to experience outdoor dining “River Cafe” style. They personalized our dessert for the occasion.
The first night open was amazing! No hitches and sitting outside was lovely. Go support them after 4 months closed. Great great night!
The view is only surpassed by the service and quality of food. We were very pleasantly surprised. The Madeira flight tasting was a perfect ending to a dinner of steak tartar, shrimp appetizer, duck breast and lobster entree. Reserve in advance and enjoy.
Perfect place for romantic dinner. Excellent food and service
River Cafe is a perfect experience. Panoramic view from the Statue across the skyline. Live piano. Hospitality combining vivacity and gravitas. A great wine list. Classic food, fantastically executed. River Cafe sets the bar for 5/5.
El mesero al principio estuvo muy atento después se olvidó por completo de nosotros
The River Cafe is my favorite restaurant for special occasions. Everyone I brought here was extremely impressed with the food, service, view and atmosphere.
This was a wonderful way to spend our Anniversary. The staff and food were wonderful. Everyone was so considerate. It’s the perfect place!
Excellent food excellent service. Unbelievable location despite the bizarre NYC virus situation. We had a great night.
What an incredible experience! From entrance, to decor, food service and exit. We were greeted by a doorman and walked through a carpeted hallway with fresh flowers. The hostess offered to take our coats and escorted us inside the main dining room. We were seated immediately and offered water, bread service and amuse-gueule. The food was the best I’ve ever experienced! Full of flavor well balanced and reasonable portions. Just a dream all around and totally worth the price tag on a special occasion. Overall excellent across the board for our first wedding anniversary dinner!!
The food was presented wonderfully, the venue was brillaint with an amazing view of the financial district skyline.
