Wonderful restaurant on the LES. Of the higher-end restaurants I've been to, I'd have to say that Riverpark trails slightly on the food quality and service fronts (we waited over an hour between our first round and main course). Aside from this minor hiccup though, the service was quite nice.

Where Riverpark shines is the ambiance of the interior design, with plenty of couches near the entrance and an elaborate bar seating area in the middle of the restaurant. If you can secure seating next to the waterfront, the view of Brooklyn at night is stunning. After dinner, you can even step outside and sit on the benches to chat.

A lovely spot overlooking the East River. Service was welcoming and professional - amongst the best I've encountered at similar level restaurants any where. And the food was excellent. We went at lunch and it was a fairly extensive menu, very hard to choose from as it all sounded wonderful. Everything we ordered was great. Out of the way location but it was a perfect oasis from a busy day.

After the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, we went back to our favorite restaurant again and again were not disappointed...From the salad and calamari appetizers to the monkfish and lamb chops, all superb...The service again was welcoming and very accommodating and we will be back, again...from the view to the restaurant setting to the food and the incredible staff, one of the best in the city!

Riverpark is such an amazing restaurant! I was so impressed with their service and food, I had a remarkable time with my boyfriend for his birthday. They customized the menu for us and reserved us a great seat by the window. The food was spectacular and I am now obsessed with their sweet potato flan! Highly recommend for any special occasion or a nice fancy dinner.

I had not been there in many months and was meeting a friend who is wheelchair bound and blind for lunch. When I realized that I would not be there on time to meet her car at the curb, I called the restaurant and explained the special care needed. When I arrived my friend had been properly greeted and seated and was sipping a glass of wine. She was pleased and I was most grateful. Then the maitre'd came to the table
to greet me, remembering me from previous visits.

As to the food, there was not a crumb left on our plates and we shared a sinfully delicious desert. We will return on future opportunities, as she felt safe and comfortable there and loved the food and wine. I must add that he price of wine by the glass is, in my opinion, too high, but since everything else and the lovely view of the Hudson River and the UN are included, I recommend Riverpark most heartily.

Enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience at Riverpark. But, as with other special restaurants where we have eaten recently the music was very loud and annoying. It was difficult to have normal conversation it was so loud. You would think that by now restaurant operator would know this is one of the top complaints in the industry and would turn it down!

The cavatelli dish I had was wonderful, but the skate entree was swimming in a butter sauce that was nauseatingly rich and overwhelmed the dish. If the skate (with a crispy buttery outside already) was going to be swimming in a sauce, the sauce should have been lighter (wine or broth based). An exceedingly buttery sauce like this with a pan fried (in butter?) fish would only be good if it were applied more sparingly as a drizzle. That was a disappointment. The croustade was delicious. The focaccia would have been better warm.

This is a restaurant with a well known chef, and I can believe, it’s a nice place, but, I asked for a salad, and they only have the decadent kale salad, please , everybody in boring with this. The worst part is they have in the menu Brussels sprouts in a brunch plate, and they told me , they can make a side order?? So what happened . It’s a fake plate. We will never go back to this place. Even the view is not so good.. never recomend this place to a friend

We dined with good friends who enjoy sharing dishes. The small plates were wonderful dishes that made use of local seasonal produce and seafood. Our friends had the duck for two and raves about it. We shared the bream for two and could not have been happier. We also tasted some delicious wines from Eastern Europe, recommended by the personable somm. Deserts included house-made ice creams and sweet potato flan- fantastic!
