drinks were great, ambience was great, food took a little bit to come out but I had great company so it didn't make a difference..Tasted great once it came out. Mousse was more pudding like than mousse like but still tasted good. Overall would recommend

The View is a beautiful restaurant, right on the water. It was decorated tastefully. The menu has a lot of great offerings. I had the New England Clam Chowder which was wonderful. I also split a salad with a friend with Gorgonzola, delicious. I had the Braised short ribs, very tasty, 2 of my friends enjoyed the Salmon very much as well. We asked the server's opinion throughout the meal and he never steered us wrong. For Dessert we split a delicious chocolate brownie with Oreos, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, fudge and it was outrageous and perfect for 4 to pick on. They never rushed us and although the bill was a bit pricey, it was worth every penny. I also had a delicious Rum Punch and my friends enjoyed the wine.

The food was wonderful but it took 3 hours for 6 people to have a 3 course meal. I think it may have just been busy between restaurant night and they also had a large private party. But it did take a long time to get our drinks and order taken. I will say our water glasses were never empty, wonderful bus girl or server assistant. Pork chop was AMAZING!!!!

A little dark and when asked to make it a little lighter, the request was denied. Stating that "they couldn't". Appetizer: Gnocchi with braised ribs rage tasted like blobs of flour, very pasty. Missing meat and the sauce was white. Ugh! Took home the entree and it tasted better the next day.

While food quality and taste was very good the portions were small and the price is high . I ordered a scallop dish with 3 scallops for $42. The Poke tuna taco was much smaller than last year and sold per piece instead of a complete appetizer. Nothing like it was once . Disappointed, had always enjoyed this restaurant.

Calamari & Crab cake appetizers along with our entrees of scallops with lobster risotto & braised short ribs with whipped parsnips then finished off with creme brulee and brownie sundae for 2 were all exceptionally good.

View delivers much more than a beautiful views! To start with, the service is impeccable...anticipating whatever you need/want and responding to requests immediately. Then there is the food...it's full of flavor and excellent quality...well worth the prices, which are not unreasonable. Definitely going back!

We waited a while for menus. And then a while for a waiter. The food was good. Our soups came out with our appetizer when we asked not to but oh well. The. We waited a very long time for a dessert menu and coffee. Then again for the check. So I loved the food but wished we had a different waiter.

We dined at the View to celebrate my birthday. We have been coming to the View for years - even in its prior iteration as the Riverview. We have always had a good experience at the View and this visit was no exception.

We arrived early so that we could have a drink in the bar area. The bar at the View is one of our favorite features. It has great views of the water and has tables and stools wrapping entirely around the room. Our server was amazing and our drinks top notch.

We moved into the dining room where we were seated along a window area with a view of the water. Although it was dark outside, the view was still outstanding! We started with the Thai Calamari (always delicious). My wife had the seafood pasta dish and I had the filet mignon. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was attentive but not pushy and we had a truly nice experience.

We did notice (as is the case in many restaurants) that the menu offerings seem to have been scaled back since COVID. Among other things, the sushi / raw bar area is currently closed at the View. I suspect this is a by product of places struggling to find labor and the on going supply chain issues. Nonetheless there was plenty for us to choose from on the menu and the quality was excellent.

We’ll be back soon! Thanks Lessings and the staff at the View for a great night it!!!

Table and waitstaff were great but menu is lacking. We were a party of 8.
For a waterfront restaurant, more hot seafood entrees should be available. Plenty of cold fish apps but salmon, swordfish, flounder etc would be expected as entrees......plus the only steak on menu other than filet mignon (shell steak) was unavailable.....on a Saturday evening at 630pm.
Lamb chops and pork chop were excellent.

Our first visit at the View was awesome.
From being brought to our table as soon as we arrived, to the service by our very friendly waitress and helpful bus boys, to the delicious choices in entrees and not feeling rushed , it didn’t left an impression on the four of us.
We will be back👍
