We have eaten here several times and enjoyed it but the service is erratic. We were two people but the servers were concentrating on tables of larger groups. Our food was placed down and no one asked if we'd like anything else such as salt and pepper or even more wine. I had to flag down the runners passing by to ask them to please get the waiter. When our meal was done it took a while for the plates to be removed and no one came to ask us if we wanted coffee or dessert. We waited 20 minutes before we could finally flag down our waiter. We asked if we could please have coffee, he apologized gave us coffee, no questions about having dessert. Later we asked for our bill and it took another 10 minutes to bring it over. It was another 10 before we finally paid. It's not a big deal in this world of ours to not be asked if we want dessert or coffee. Its not a big deal if we wait, I could've gotten up and asked for our waiter to come over. I do think if you're spending over $200 on a meal you should get service without having to chase it.

The service was great! Food was delicious! View was outstanding, overlooking the east river! We went in February so could utilize the outdoor seating. I’m sure in the spring/ summer it’s even better!

Amazing restaurant week Sunday night dining experience. Extensive choices and wonderful preparations. Service was excellent as always. Noise is unobtrusive - tables are spaced to provide privacy. A true gem any time of year.

My husband’s retirement dinner was perfect thanks to the talented and gracious team at Riverpark. All of our guests were blown away by the ambiance, decor, food and service. The lemon meringue cake that I preordered was perfectly balanced and beautifully decorated. I will continue to have Riverpark first on my list of fabulous restaurants in NYC.

Dined here for Restaurant Week with a small group. Unlike most places that give you discounted service together with the discounted menu, Riverpark only serves the RW menu during RW, so everyone gets five star food and service without exception. Not only was the food beyond delicious and the atmosphere lovely, but the service exceeded expectations. The duck was exceptionally exceptional. :)
We happened to be celebrating two birthdays, which I did mention when confirming the reservation, but I had no expectation that we would receive the royal treatment that we did. Staff went above and beyond to make this a special night for us, going so far as to personalize the menus and dessert for the birthday celebrants. So impressed with the awesome service and the atmosphere here, and will definitely return, even for the full price menu. There is a reason that this place gets such great reviews, five star everything. Highly recommend.

A friend and I had lunch at Riverpark during Restaurant Week. Service was perfect from the time we arrived to check in until we left. There was a large choice of dishes (unlike some restaurants during RW) making it hard to choose. That is a good "problem". Food was beautifully presented and tasty. What more could you want?

My friend and I had lunch at Riverpark and the quality of service was honestly unacceptable. The waiter served the wrong first courses for both of us (he mixed up the order with another table). After we pointed it out, the waiter and manager came to talk to us and verbally confirmed that we could have the wrong first courses for free ("complementary on them") and they would be serving the correct first courses alongside the entrees. The entrees came by themselves. After we finished the entrees, they asked if us wanted any dessert. We asked them again about the earlier promise of serving the correct first courses, but were told that since we "ate the food (the wrong first courses)", they would not be serving us the correct first courses. Note that the two of us are both Asian college students, and we are not sure if this is related. Bottomline is, this restaurant could easily revoke on something they promised just minutes ago and disregard their customers' dining experience (which was severly affected by their own mess-up). STRONGLY RECOMMEND AGAINST.

Love, lov, luv this place!
The food is amazing. Simplicity at it's best not pretentious in the least. Every dish had deep flavors and did not disappoint. For example, we ordered a side of mashed sweet potato to share and couldn't get over how delicious it was. Was it the cream, nope, too light for cream. Is it the seasoning, not really the vegetable was just shining. It must be where they source their produce. We were so happy with our meal, wine and the service; can't wait to return.

I had an absolutely amazing experience here. The service was impeccable. Our server provided the most detailed descriptions for each dish, getting as specific to explain which cities the ingredients were sourced from. They had great team service and my water glass was never below halfway full throughout my meal. The food and plating was great, and the ambiance was very cozy. To top it off, they had someone outside with an umbrella to walk us to our ubers (it was pouring rain the day I went). 5 stars all around, thank you for such a great dining experience- start to finish!

Best,
Olivia Mershon

I love RiverPark. I live in the neighborhood and have gotten to know the wonderful staff over many years. For me it is a place to celebrate an event...usually a birthday. The food is creative and excellent and the service is seamless and not intrusive.

Everything was so amazing. I enjoyed the service. Servers were very attentive and friendly. The food tasted real good. I got a braised chicken dish which I enjoyed. It was slightly overcooked but it was still amazing and juicy. I loved my app (chicory salad) and the complementary bread was to dah for.

The family had a lovely brunch. When I made the reservations the receptionist asked if were celebrating an occasion, we were, my daughter-in laws return from visiting family in Ca. To celebrate her return the top top of the menu read WELCOME BACK EMILY. The affect was warm and welcoming, We loved the jazz offered at Sunday brunch. The service and the food was impeccable. We were seated by the window and that too added to our pleasure with the outing.
I have already introduced friends and family to Riverpark and plan to continue to do so.

Lovely setting; especially on a sunny day when one can look out the window and see the River. The restaurant is very pretty- modern and in good taste. The tables are comfortable and not on top of one another.
The service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner, lunch and brunch!

This restaurant is beautiful inside. Amazing view! Food is outstanding. We came here for my cousins birthday I made reservations through open table. Once we sat there and saw the menu they had already prefixed the menu with my cousin birthday which I though was a amazing simple touch that made the night even more special.

Solid food. The service was good with respect to filling our glasses and clearing our plates and the managers constantly rotating round but I don’t know we had a waiter and at the end of the meal wasn’t offered coffee or last drink, our drinks were slow. The ambiance is nice. Great space. Awesome that for restaurant week they featured the whole menu. Fresh ingredients.

The squid ink pasta and a squash appetizer were good. The pork chop was also good but not great, a little fatty for my taste which a lot of people like. But 2 dishes failed. The cauliflower cavetelli was a mushy undifferentiated blob. And the dessert of coconut rice pudding was bland and depressing.

I was expecting to be wowed and was a bit disappointed in the food. Four of us dined here and each dish, first and second courses, had just a bit too much going on in the plate. Sometimes, less is more. The ingredients were of high quality; the service was impeccable, and some of the ashes were tasty. But the pasta with lamb sauce and the pork chop dishes, for example, had tastes that were competing with each other on the plate.

The menu uses ingredients I would never think of together and the results are great. The staff was attentive and checked on us often. John Gargano, Hospitality Manager, was personally making the rounds and checking on everyone. The atmosphere was perfect - good for dates, groups and after work. My husband and I will definitely be back - this is on our list of favorite restaurants.
