OMG, Riverpark knocked it out of the park again. It was a special occasion and they pulled out all the stops. Delicious food, solicitous service, a few extras...all helped to mitigate the astronomical bill. It’s not an every-day restaurant but for a special occasion you can’t do better. $125 for prime rib for two? Yes, please! It actually served 2 plus 2 more and it was the best beef ever. They have their own garden. And a special thank you to Dušan, the sommelier. What a night!!

This is a unique and spectacular NYC restaurant - with exceptional service. The inside and bar area are open - high ceilings with stunning views of the East River and eastside of Manhattan. We had an outside table and enjoyed the view - the river - adjacent garden. Our salads were perfect and the fish for 2 moist - tasty and loaded with fresh vegetables. This is a first class establishment and we will be back very soon!

This was an all around delightful dining experience. The host was most accommodating when we arrived late. Our initial waiter was helpful in suggesting wines and his recommendations were spot on. Without a doubt, one of the best preparations of gazpacho - a flavorful chilled soup gently poured over diced summer vegetables. The branzino was nicely seasomed and served on a beautiful bed of vegetables. The waitress upon observing my displeased reaction to the very tart verbena lavender sorbet, and without my solicitation, offered me another option - the smooth almond cherry ice cream. I also tried the corn cream
brulle - the consistency and combination with the peaches and blueberry sorbet was delectable. This was truly exemplary of fine service and fine dining. Not to mention that the dining room is simply beautiful. As someone who eats out frequently at fine establishments, I must say this is one of my new favorites.

The service and wait staff were excellent. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The complimentary creme brule and blueberry sorbet really was something. Scrumptious. Our friend
needed gluten free due to her celiac disease and the staff were so solicitous, making certain that
she was able to have all things wheat free. Really very thoughtful.
All in all a wonderful lunch.

My son & I came here (farthest east) to finallly try this much-lauded restaurant. He ordered the beautiful & tasty gazpacho, while I had the burattini, which was good but perhaps the granola isn't the ideal fit for this starter. I enjoyed the beautifully-plated, perfectly-balanced branzino dish. My son enjoyed the salmon but didn't like the beans, which I finished happily. Lovely view of the East River & outside seating area. It was good to see the stakes for the tomato plants in Colicchio's small garden for this restaurant. Highly recommend for food, attentive service & very relaxing experience.

I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant. The staff was so friendly so professional but welcoming! Love the fact that they have a garden right there from which they obtain many of their fresh ingredients. It's a beautiful space right on the river where you can eat in or out. We went for lunch during restaurant week but can't wait to go back for dinner and on a regular basis. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful time !

I love this restaurant. Food, ambience, service could not be better. Last week when I went for lunch during Restaurant Week I had an especially gratifying experience. Struggling with all my packages and umbrella to get out of the cab in front of the restaurant the door was opened by a gallant young man who carefully helped me out of the cab before getting into it himself. I was in the restaurant for five minutes when a manager came to our table calling me by name.One of our employees found your credit card in his cab he explained and informed me he would be back by 2: pm and return it to me. Sure enough this pleasant young man, Dusan Vranic, Beverage Director of Riverpark was at our table an hour later and smiling, returned my credit card. I would say the service at this restaurant is above and beyond.

We hadn't been to Riverpark in about a month due to saving up for our vacation, but when we returned the food was even better than before, if that's possible...New items like the scallops and lamb and the crab/cornbread appetizer were just delightful...Again Dusan was a most gracious and welcoming host to us and also the waiter and waitress who took care of us during the evening were exceptional...everyone is so kind and welcoming......Our favorite restaurant by far...

Had the most wonderful lunch at Riverpark this week. Tried it for Restaurant Week and cannot wait to go back. Four of us were seated a nice table facing the water. Lovely spot. John Gargano, the Hospitality Manager, took very good care of us explaining the menu items and wines. We made some terrific choices.
Everything was delicious. We tried the Spanish Gazpacho, Braised Brisket, Berkshire Pork Loin and Sauteed Branzino. We also tried the Shishito Peppers (from their garden). For dessert the lavender pavlova and homemade ice creams and sorbets were outstanding. A must try is a drink concoction called "Somewhere That's Green"! We had a chance to visit the garden and had a nice chat with Jonathan, one of their gardeners. We all agreed this was one of the best Restaurant Week meals in all the years we have been participating. We will definitely return.

The atmosphere, staff and food were all top notch. Even thought. It was part of Restaurant Week, the menu was not sparse but had a full range of choices, all appealing, making difficult to choose. Service was attentive, was not rushed or intrusive. A good representation of Tom Colicchio’s restaurants.

Good food, but not great. Was expecting to be wowed with the food at a Tom Collichio restaurant. Service was just ok. A couple meals not warm enough and a mistake about portion size was made with my date's meal. Maybe it was an off night, but I guess I just went in with super high expectations.

My friend and I had lunch at Riverpark during NYC Restaurant Week. My gazpacho appetizer was delicious, but I wish there had been more of it -- it seemed more like a "tasting" than a "first course." I had the brisket as a main course -- it was superb.

The staff was courteous, welcoming, and friendly.

I travel a lot and research good restaurants wherever I go and Riverpoint is my new favorite restaurant. When you walk in the door the host is friendly and warm. The atmosphere is hip with wonderful water views. All of this was topped by the outstanding service, which was topped by the delicious food. After our meal we walked outside to see the farm where we met Jonathan who runs the outdoor farm. He took time to explain the garden and how the food is used on the menu. From beginning to end this place is 5 stars (more if I could give them).
