Our experience was great from the moment we made the reservation. Riverpark emailed me to confirm the reservation and to ask for any special dietary restrictions. My husband and I were taking my mother out for dinner during her visit to NYC. He and I are both vegetarians, so it was nice to alert the restaurant to this ahead of time. When we were seated, the waiter already knew to offer us accommodations, including any of the regular meat dishes, with mushrooms as a protein substitute!

Every dish was superbly crafted, with extra attention to detail. It was obvious that the kitchen staff puts energy into preparing each plate specifically for the individual diner. As a first course we ordered a very nice and refreshing salad, as well as a delightful burrata cheese dish that was so simple and yet didn't need to be complex to pop. We also tried all of the vegetable side dishes and each one was elegant and delicious.

The desserts also did not disappoint. The dish that stood out was the "Cereal and Milk," a dark chocolate ganache exterior that oozes a vanilla malt when you cut into it with a fork.

The manager Ed came and checked on us several times, and was very friendly and genuine. I would definitely recommend Riverpark to anyone looking for a quiet and romantic fine dining experience that's off the beaten path.

I have been to dinner several times. Each time the food and service was impeccable. The room is gorgeous. And happy hour at the bar before dinner is a treat. The bartender and waiters are friendly and extremely competent. I was thrilled when I discovered it the first time. Make sure you go to first avenue and 29th street and make a right. It is in a commercial building but really great dining. Anything you order is delicious.

My wife took me here for my birthday after hearing about how fantastic the food was and boy did this place deliver. We were sat in a semi-private cozy window corner as the snow came down and it was great. Not only was the food top notch but so was the spectacular service we received from our server Vlad. What I did not expect, for a simple birthday, was for the manager Ed Torres to come to our table and wholeheartedly greet and thank us for coming in from so far. Ed made sure our dining experience was nothing less than fabulous by suggesting dishes we would have otherwise never ordered. Ed also did a wonderful job of pairing each meal w an appropriate glass of wine and thoroughly explaining why and the region it came from.

Summarily, this place is a hidden gem in a neighborhood we would have otherwise not ventured to but the food and service is absolutely worth the trip here.

We have been to Riverpark around five times for dinner. The food is truly outstanding as is the service. The staff is very welcoming, warm , and friendly. They take service and hospitality very seriously.
Riverpark's menu is wonderfully seasonal and the food is prepared beautifully. No matter what I order, I am always amazed at how simply delicious and expertly executed each dish is.
If you have not been Riverpark, you are missing one of the best restaurants in Manhattan- and I have been almost everywhere.

Riverpark really delivered. It was my wife's birthday. The hosts greeted her at the door with a big happy birthday and every staffer did the same throughout the night. They even had a custom menu for her with Happy Birthday _______ written across the top.

A nice quiet table by the window (too bad it was snowing), excellent service and quality, tasty food made for a great night out to dinner.

Beautiful space and ambiance--and great food to match! Enjoyed the pork roast for two which included ribs, loin, and belly. The ribs were overdone, but the loin was delicious and the belly was phenomenal with great texture and smokiness.

A near-perfect Thanksgiving dinner! I suppose the only improvement I can think of would be if the restaurant itself was in a less office-like setting, but overall the food, the drinks, and the service all more than surpassed my expectations. I would definitely return for another special occasion in the future.

We have dined at this restaurant on several occasions and it always pleases. The ambience is exceptional with views across the East river to Brooklyn. The service is spot on, just the right amount of attention. The food is very tasteful and served with good continuity of courses just. And a big plus is you can actually have a decent conversation without. Raising voices over loud and obtrusive music.

Great evening spent at Riverpark for our daughters birthday. The staff was aware of her birthday and they could not have been more doting. Service was probably the best we've ever experienced. It was a Wednesday so I'm sure that helped but it could have also gone the other way, because it was a Wednesday. We all loved what we ordered, and plates were not small. The small perfectly lit restaurant over looks the east river and Williamsburg, Greenpoint area. We will gladly return.

My wife and I frequent Riverpark's bar on Friday evenings for happy hour so we are well aware of the establishment's ambiance and friendly staff. We have also dined there previously with positive outcomes. We recently went there for my wife birthday and the level of attention she was afforded went far beyond what I could have expected. The food was delicious, the chef and bartender tailored items on the menu to our subtle change desires. The hostess and server went out of their way to my spouse feel special. The commemorative personalized menu was a very nice touch! Thank you Riverpark

We celebrated a birthday and they made it special by having the menu say Happy Birthday...”, candle in dessert and they wrapped up the menu in a bow for us to take home as a keepsake.

However, the chairs are uncomfortable, we sat near the bar and it was very loud. The bartenders shaking the martinis was distracting. It was also a bummer that you had to leave the restaurant to go to the bathroom. They were located in the foyer of the building that the restaurant was in.

Overall the food was very good. The waiter was kind and we had fun.

Kudos to the restaurant for custom printing our menus and the free personalized dessert. Outside of that, you guys fell flat. Terrible service, cold and undercooked food, and not even a visit from a manager? What a waste of time and money. Can't imagine what regular dinner service here is like.....
