We asked for an outside seat. Manager sat us at a table that had the air conditioning blowing at us from inside. It was freezing. We asked to move and he refused to sit us another place outside because we were already seated was his first excuse. Then he changed his mind and said the other tables were reserved. He also refused close the door that was open making it called for us. He would only offer a seat inside. He was rude and un accommodating. I will never go back.

It was amazing. I took my girlfriend there to celebrate her college graduation and they did an amazing job of making it special. The food is delicious and worth the price. The wait staff is awesome. The wine is also delicious and they have so many options. The manager also go around explaining the food and making sure you are enjoying your dinner.

It might be a bit out of the way but it's always worth the trip. Wonderfully creative and tasty food, with an excellent wine list, always fresh raw bar, and fun cocktails. Menu seems to change seasonally and most of (if not all) the ingredients are locally sourced—some grown right on the property. The staff is terrific—from the coat check to the host/hostess to the waiter, sommelier, food runners, etc. Really a great restaurant.

Came here with my girlfriend to celebrate her masters graduation. We sat a table by the window with a great view of the east river. Service was on point, and they even called me and asked for her name ahead of time so they could write a personalized message in chocolate sauce on the dessert plate.

Fabulous meal as usual. From the focaccia to the scrumptious pasta dishes (we particularly love the fusilli with lamb sausage & mint pea pesto) to the NY strip and then the mochi and Pannacotta desserts, all was wonderful. Top it off with caring and attentive service. Jessica is outstanding! And the beautiful view of the river is not bad either. We are looking forward to our return.

We took a very dear friend to Riverpark to celebrate a special birthday and everyone there did his or her utmost to ensure that the Guest of Honor -- and all of us -- had a most memorable experience.

Riverpark's food is delicious and features some especially fine fresh items from their expanding garden -- and the staff is wonderfully attentive in just the right way. We have loved this special restaurant for years and always love to share it with our family and friends, whatever the occasion or "non-occasion" may be.

Octopus first course is cooked so well. Right amount of char and was still soft inside. Main courses failed and left a lot to be desired. Both the steak and rabbit dishes were over salted. Medium rare steak was cold and is a thick cut with over salted sear with flavorless inside. Would not come back here for the food.

This restaurant delivered one of the best anniversary dinners I have ever had. The smoked trout for two was hands down the best seafood dish I’ve had in a very long time. The radishes, grits, octopus were all splendid. The service was impeccable and the way the restaurant went out of its way to provide a memento for my wife and myself during our anniversary was incredibly thoughtful. Riverpark is now on my short list of restaurants to return too.

The place is nice looking, though in a difficult place to go. The drinks were fine, even if slow to arrive. However, the menu was quite limited, the food was tasteless and the service very mediocre. The wait staff was friendly, but inattentive. In order to get anything, a menu, napkin, silverware, bread, etc. one had to tackle someone walking by. I would recommend that you save your money and go to another restaurant. In New York there are many better restaurants.

We went here for our 25th Anniversary dinner and they absolutely knocked it out of the stadium. From the very first minute, the service was warm and friendly, the menu was amazing, the maitre d' stopped by, everyone wished us happy anniversary, we felt like the king and queen of the evening, yet they were never intrusive. The food was wonderful too. I had the mushrooms in broth which was an amazing primer on how different mushrooms taste and DH had the sausage fusilli, both excellent. Since it was our anniversary, we shared the roast lamb for two which we enjoyed greatly. We were able to find a tasty cabernet to drink with it that didn't break the bank. For dessert I had ice cream and DH had a strawberry rhubarb pie. They wrote happy anniversary on that as well. It was the perfect ending to an exceptional evening.

I was looking for an upscale outdoor dining spot for a special lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Riverpark fit the bill. The service was terrific and the menu is well done featuring seasonal, local fresh food. One of the chefs was a bit heavy-handed with the salt for appetizer, but exceedingly so with my entree salad. The maitre di took it back without question, replaced it quickly with a newly made salad, took $10 off our bill, and topped off my glass of wine. They also gave us a beautiful happy anniversary desert plate.

Had a terrific meal on the patio. Delcious bread. Outstanding octopus and sweetbreads appetizers. Best rabbit entree ever and excellent duck. The milk and cookies dessert was amazing. One of the best meals in years and the service was perfect. Eating on the patio on a mild weekday overlooking the river is a perfect. We will be back.

I have somehow managed to avoid the Colicchio empire probably because I am a Pesca/Veg. To my surprise, I had sadly mis-judged TC's breadth of menu. The octopus carpaccio was creative, complex, tender(sous vide?) and flavorful. The asparagus tacos(3 large, could only eat 2) would have made Alex Stupak blush, hand made tortilla, delicate tempura coating yet perfect texture asparagus, with avocado mash and a complex aioli, interesting white asparagus gazpacho, and an avocado ice cream finish. Service equaled anything Danny Meyer has to offer - you want to come back, even as a first timer. It's a mini-hike from the #6 @28th, but very much worth it.

Wonderful food and service, so accommodating, my 5th or 6th time here, brunch, lunch, and dinner is all so good. They have their own greenhouse you can see next door they get their produce from. I'm vegan and they always go above and beyond to prepare a delicious meal, and I always take my meat/fish eating friends and they absolutely love it. Can't recommend enough!

Riverpark has become one of our "go to" restaurants. Upon arrival the lovely hostess welcomed us and advised that our requested server was off but our preferred seating with the beautiful view of the East River was available. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was terrific as always. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was no longer in stock so the sommelier upgraded us to a nicer bottle. In fact, he remembered the bottle we ordered the last visit. This is just an awesome restaurant that really seems to put customers first. Service and quality are always in style. Keep up the great work!

We went there for a birthday celebration. The view was fantastic, seated at the very corner of the restaurant and welcomed by all the staff. They even gave you the special Birthday Menu for a gift! Every course was great, especially the octopus for the appetizer. But I would say their significant 'Milk & Cereal' is way too sweet for us... Everything else was wonderful. Will coming back on special occasions :)
