As big fans of Tom Colicchio, we were exited to visit Riverpark. we were disappointed. While the food was excellent, the service was so bad that we had to skip dessert to maintain our sanity.

Once again, another memorable meal...Thanks so much to the GM Cyndra for making us feel so welcome and paying so much attention to us...What a gracious host!....The meal again was superb....We had the branzino and the brisket, both exceptional and the appetizers were also inventively prepared (the carrot tartare and tuna tartare..) Not to mention the sides and dessert and wonderful wine selection.. And again all the staff was incredibly kind and effecient ...
What a wonderful place....Don't miss out on this dining experience (plus the view is incredible)

We usually avoid “view” or celeb chef restaurants but decided to give Riverpark a try for anniversary brunch. Beautiful space. Mostly great service although my husband received only one egg with his order. Another mysteriously arrived 10 minutes later. No thanks. My eggs were delicious but the bacon disappointed in taste but certainly not portion size. Hard to believe anyone could eat that much bacon.

Meal ended with a lovely Happy Anniversary plate; nicely done.

Overall it was a good experience and I’d probably bring guests here for the view.

Waiter was very “ruby Tuesday” for the occasion and the level of dining.

Sommelier was phenomenal as was host staff, exquisite extras- again just sad that our waiter literally should have been wearing pins on his suspenders.

this is our granddaughter's favorite restaurant. She has been coming there since she was 1 and has loved it. Although it is a quite restaurant and not for kids running around noisily, they are very welcoming the children who are not disruptive and were so welcoming to us once again. The view is lovely and the whole set up of the restaurant is as well. The food is also very good, esp. for brunch on the weekends.

Pricey no doubt but unusually comfortable for a quality NYC restaurant. Lamb and fish special were superb and pasta dish very tasty. Interesting wine list but don’t expect any bargains. Overall, a very good experience. But for the tab I’d be a regular.

Love this restaurant-- the preparations are interesting and beautiful. And love the special touch of adding birthday guest name to menu. Service is very attentive and helpful. I look forward to warm weather when we can sit outside. The validated parking is an added bonus.

Very accommodating to special dietary requests.

Exquisite... From the moment I stepped in. Staff was attentive and the service was superb... The food was fresh, vibrant and all of the flavors went well together. I had the Branzino which was to die for! My cousin had the Brisket and said it was the best meal of his life.

Food and service were outstanding. However, we were there for a special birthday dinner (which the restaurant knew about) and our table was in the bar area in a confined space between two pillars. If there is a separate dining room it was not in use on a Friday night at the end of March. The setting did not match the quality of the meal and service. I'd recommend the restaurant for a great casual meal but not a special occasion.

We took my brother and my sister-in-law to Riverpark as a special thank you to my brother, Marc. It was one of the finest dining experiences I've ever had . Food, service and atmosphere are impeccable. Each dish is prepared with a lot of attention to detail, quality ingredients, and creative flair. Tyler, an employee, did something very special. He surprised us by printing "Thank you Marc" on all of our menus. And, Will, who seated me, was so kind and accommodating. I only have great things to say about Riverpark. It's a stunning restaurant on the East River at 29th Street, and it provides a special parking deal in the the Alexandria Center, the building where it's located. This made the entire experience a pleasure. We will certainly be back for another special occasion. I highly recommend Riverpark.

Had been here several times and found this the first disappointing experience. Prior two times had been in groups of 8 and had tried many of the items on the brunch menu tapas style. French toast, donuts, breakfast tacos, all delicious. This time the breakfast tacos weren't available (mistake - should be a staple....better than bacon and eggs option.) I tried the corned beef, fingerling potatoes and thin strips of apple tossed on top --- corned been with barbeque like sauce was okay - tender, but kind of yucky for breakfast versus simple tender bites, I had asked for my poached egg to be runny, but not liquid on outside....I asked three times when I ordered.......dish came with horridly runny poached egg. When it came back, versus having a new egg, the dish had been microwaved or something, and egg was grossly solid...no runniness whatso ever....and of course had taken a long time to get. Not impressive. The dish overall was so so. My friend's eggs and bacon were not that great either La Colombe coffee always wonderful. Hoping this was a one off bad experience.

Being a Top Chef fan I decided to bring my boyfriend here for his birthday since the restaurant is owned by Tom Colicchio. The ambience was beautiful and I loved that they wrote happy birthday on personalized menus however the food was just not amazing. Everything was overly salty and flavors were just not there. Simple items such as tuna tartare was super salty and the butternut squash noodles were unappetizing. The mains we ordered were the carbonara (also super salty) and the brisket which was just okay. The food was surprisingly mediocre for a place owned by the head judge of Top Chef. The only thing that saved our dinner was the dessert which was just the perfect amount of sweet. While I wanted to love this place I will not be coming back.

While the food was very, very good - I must admit that the menu seemed more limited that in prior visits. The service was overall fair. I had to ask about drinks, about 10 minutes after we were seated. Server was nice, but not effective. Overall, it was a great evening because we were catching-up with good friends, but not sure I'll return.

Our reservation was on Sunday, February 25. It was a surprise I arranged for my husband's birthday. The restaurant was very quiet, only 4 tables were occupied. The appetizers were delicious. We had the parsnip leek soup & butternut squash. For the main entree I ordered the scallops which were delicious. My husband ordered the rack of lamb medium-well, more towards the well side. Unfortunately his lamb was served rare. He was quite unhappy and requested the entire dish be re-made. We ended up eating our main courses separately. The manager did give us a very nice trio of desserts and round of drinks as a gesture of apology. I would expect a restaurant of this caliber to properly cook meat to the customers' taste!
