Definitely one of our favorite places! We have been coming here for years. It's extremely classy and beautiful. Extremely romantic environment. The food is always delicious. Definitely a hidden gem.

We were there on Saturday March 14th
I always love visiting this restaurant, and I love the menus, I have literally never been disappointed. I am saddened by the news the following day that unfortunately the restaurant closed because of the current critical situation the Globe is facing, Corona virus, please buy a gift card to Crafts to support the staff there also! Hope to visit soon! #FCorona

We LOVE Riverpark! It’s our favorite restaurant on the east side. The dishes are creative and beyond satisfying. My new favorite is the elegant pork chop.

I went there for my birthday dinner. My boyfriend and I were so excited to order for steak for two peroson. It wasn't on the menue but the stuff asked the chef about it. There was only one left !
We ordered that to cook for medium rare but it came as weldan. We asked for the stuff about the steak but they offered that not charged for a bottle of wine.
Other dishes were not tasted. We ordered potato just came with rosemary on top.
Salda was good. But the day our main meal wasn't good. It was so bammer.
I can't cook steak like a chef dose medium rare.That's why we went there for. It was my memory for my B.day and spend lots of money for what I don't like.

While service was reasonably good at lunch (reservation was 12:15pm) as it was not crowded, the food was marginal and the chicken that was included with my salad was extremely dry and not edible. Others in the party had the salmon and it seemed OK. Overall, difficult location as there was limited parking in the area, food was OK but not what one would expect. Desserts were good. Service was good, but as stated before, not crowded.

Jose, our waiter, was very helpful in seeing to it that my husband had a wonderful meal that met all his dietary needs. Our dinner was absolutely delicious and creative, from appetizer through dessert. I had the duck, which was prepared perfectly. My dessert, chocolate semi freddo with tropical fruits was as beautiful as it was scrumptious. We are never disappointed at RiverPark.

Fabulous meal! We have been three times in the past month! I love, love, love the duck! I have had it two ways and both fabulous! Waitstaff is incredibly attentive and the setting is spacious and gorgeous! A little out of the way but SO worth it.

Sunday brunch at Riverpark was a true delight — lovely dining room, gorgeous water view, live amazing jazz singer and guitarist, interesting menu choices and wonderful food (especially recommended is the pastry board, featuring a trio of luscious pastries that were easily enough for two to share). One word of advice, though: We were only offered the prix-fixe menu, which listed a $45 meal including two courses and two cocktails. But an a la carte menu is also available upon request, we learned. We will def be back!

Such a great place. The service is fantastic. It's a bit pricey but just think of it as paying for great service because that's exactly what my sweetheart and I experienced. There was a mix-up with the beer choice I ordered due to the two beverages having a similar name and they remedied it promptly and cheerfully. The view of the river is nice too. I'd definitely go back!

On 2/29/20 - four people in our party had a very disappointing meal!!
Steak tartar - Where's the BEEF? The ratio of chopped radishes/cucumbers to steak was wrong, not enough meat.
Gnudi - These short gnocchis were heavy like logs and had but mere glazing of butter - reminded us of microwave airplane food, very dry, no sauce. Wonder why the chef went to the trouble to fry the little sage leaves.
Fusilli - overcooked, mushy, and not hot.
Branzino & clams - fish was just ok, clams were dry. Menu description - charred chicories, dill, chowder. Where was the chowder? No sauce, no liquid.
Scallops - Scallops were very good, but the portion was small, only four small-sized scallops.
Duck - good, the best of what we ordered but can't say uniquely amazing.
All the food came out warm, not hot.
It never feels good to leave feeling hungry and not getting a good value. Not sure how the Tom Colicchio kitchen can justify the price.
Although the food was a huge let-down, the service was excellent!

Had a fantastic experience here. Took my fiance for a birthday lunch - if you let them know in advance they will make a customized menu!!! Had a very reasonably priced prix fixe menu. Loved the live music and the restaurant has a nice ambience overlooking the East River. Will definitely be coming back.

We went to the Sunday Jazz Brunch to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The service was amazing. They printed menus for us that said Happy Birthday with her name in addition to bringing a dessert to us with a candle and happy birthday written in chocolate - We didn't even order dessert! The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented, the cocktails were tasty and the soft sound of the live jazz music was the icing on top! All for $45 a person!

Always leery about choosing a restaurant based solely on online searches and online reviews, however this restaurant beat all expectations. The atmosphere and views were spectacular but this foodie could not believe that each course could actually out do the previous. I will go back for the food, deeeelliicious!

We visited Riverpark to celebrate a special birthday for my daughter. The food was wonderful, from appetizers through dessert and our waitress was lovely - attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, wine and extras. We each had something different and there were no disappointments in any of the dishes. Though somewhat out of my price range for a dinner (but not too outrageous), it was well worth it to celebrate something special.
