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!

We notified Riverpark that it was our anniversary, and they wished us a Happy Anniversary more than once. Food was excellent and service was friendly and accommodating. We loved the fresh focaccia bread as well as our appetizers and entrees: The roasted salmon and the cavatelli. For dessert we shared the Coconut Rice Pudding which was perfect for an autumn day.

Family favorite, delicious consistent healthy sophisticated fare with an optionality to get the basics in a perfected way for the pickiest palettes.
The waiters and management is also extremely consistent. They remember us and treat us like regular patrons. I bring all my friends and family from out of town to River Park for brunch on the weekends and the valet parking in the building ground level is a perk that makes it even better when we don’t opt to walk or cab there. I hope to some day book an event at acapella upstairs - just toured and it’s modern and gorgeous. Knowing the catering is from TC River Park is key.

A very special occasion restaurant. On 29th and the East River with a nice view of the river. Both the ladies in our group were celebrating a major birthday, and I told the restaurant and they celebrated this with their names on the menus.
Now service and food: Our server explained all courses and answered all questions. We were served a complimentary sparkling wine, we then ordered a lovely Cotes Du Rhône and our courses which everyone raved about. My wife and I shared the tuna crudo, small pieces of raw tuna with radishes and micro basil. My wife had the skate, I had the roasted hanger steak, the other couple had a salad, the skate and scallops and clams. We were also served wonderful slices of a very well made focaccia with onions and a small dish of olive oil. We also had sides of frites and sweet potatoes. In a word, all dishes were great and we all cleaned our plates. service was on point. Servers were Attentive and non hovering. Al items were removed from the table in a timely manner.
Dessert was rice pudding and a pear tart, and complimentary ice cream and sorbet for the birthday girls.
This is an expensive, fine dining destination restaurant which I recommend for that very special occasion.

We were immediately seated on arrival. The view was lovely. The waiter was quite patient in offering my friend a taste of a different wine than the first she ordered. Mine was fine. The food was fine and we both cleaned our plates. I really like sweetbreads and they are rarely on a menu but were this time.

Came here for my birthday from out of town and it did not disappoint. Started with the half dozen oysters and a glass of champagne recommended by the SOM. She was so friendly and pleasant. The oysters were great. Moved on to the main course, I had the seared halibut and my boyfriend had the Peking duck. Both dishes were absolutely fantastic and expertly paired with a glass of wine by the SOM. Ended the night with dessert and a glass of port. We had the milk and cereal and the waffle cone and they were excellent. Not too rich but the flavor was so savory. We will definitely be back here for the amazing food and above par service for our next stay in New York!

Riverpark is a special place. It is particularly great when the outdoor seating is available because the views of the City and East River are stunning. The menu changes by season, and ingredients are sourced locally, including some from the farm right next to the restaurant in Manhattan!
