    New York may get all the international attention, but some of the best waterfront views in the area are actually in New Jersey. This stunning venue is located on the edge of the Hudson River, offering beautiful panoramas of the Manhattan skyline with its lights glistening in the current. The sprawling space boasts two ballrooms that can be decked out to be as elaborate or as simple as the illustrious couple would like. Essentially a one stop wedding shop, Waterside Restaurant & Catering staff will handle all of the details and help create the ideal menu. Culinary Institute of America-trained executive chef Gus Shizas is known for making unforgettable food—including a Grand Marnier duck station with traditional Chinese garnishes—that’s sure to be nearly as memorable as the glamorous view.

    Food was average. Nice view across Hudson River to Manhattan skyline. Service good during beginning of meal, but tailed off dramatically. Also difficult to understand waiter and busboys. Having the DJ was nice but way too noisy.

    Food was delicious, portion sizes could have been better. Service was also good, our server was knowledgeable and helpful when ordering, drinks were a bit of a disappointment. Drinks of rye whisky, bourbon and gin were all ordered during this meal by different people and all disappointed. We had an 8PM reservation on a Friday so the place got loud from the DJ pretty early on, if you are looking for dinner and to go out then this may be the place for you. For us we just wanted to go out to dinner so regular conversation became increasingly difficult as the music got louder. The poor quality drinks made it even easier to justify leaving. Overall good experience but I cannot see any of the 4 members in my dining party returning anytime soon, the cost Vs the experience I think just did not line up. The value was not there for us. Very nice ambiance inside for what it is worth and the valet parking is a nice touch too

    I booked a reservation for my birthday and I didn’t feel the birthday vibe. The server barely knew anything and didn’t accommodate us. Everytime we asked for something it was not on the menu. We asked for flat water and he brought bottle water. The food was a little disappointed. No seasoning in the food. Overall I’ve have better quality food for the amount of money we paid.

    I have gone to Waterside on numerous occasions which I had great experiences, however this time it was different. The waiter was not attentive at all, we stayed longer than anticipated. The portion sizes are shrinking probably due to inflation, but the prices are the same. The restaurant has great views of NYC. The drinks weren’t the greatest this time. Overall recommend it, but hopefully this was an isolated experience and is better when I return.

    Overall experience here was great. We were able to sit outdoors on a nice day. Our server seemed less than excited to be serving us, did the bare minimum - no introduction, no review of the menu, just took our orders and brought the check. It’s always nice to find a waiter with a nice balance of checking in, politeness, minimal and appropriate small talk - he wasn’t it. Now on to the food! Get the Greek style chicken with fingerling potatoes - crispy skin, nicely seasoned….so good. The salmon my sister said was under seasoned. Zombie on water was a good drink, the bourbon tea was also not bad. I’d return again for that chicken and the ambiance.

    We sat outside. There is a beautiful view. Very kind servers and staff. We tuna tartare and shrimp for appetizers. Both were good. We had the sea bass and steak for our meals. The steak was over cooked and lacked flavor, the fish was good. Overall, nice time.

    Beyond disappointing! Arrived at 5:45 for our 6:00 reservation and our hostess was one of the only positives of our evening. We were seated right away and she was quite pleasant. Our waiter came to take our order and we ordered two drinks while we perused the menu. When he returned with our drinks, we ordered a dozen oysters while we continued to look over the rest of the menu. We were informed he could NOT place our in pieces and that it had to all be placed at one time. We were befuddled and a bit annoyed but complied. We ordered the oysters, two other apps and two entrees. While only half way thru the oysters, the two hot appetizers appeared. Now, I was really annoyed and I sent them back. Why were we being rushed? The restaurant was more than half empty. When we were finished the apps returned but they were cold. Great, so they took them away but clearly just let them sit somewhere and get cold…what’s the point???? Thankfully our entrees were fine & the banana bread dessert delicious. Also, if you are going to add a service fee to the check, you should inform your guests so that they don’t tip on top of it. Be up front and don’t hide it.

    The outdoor dining is causal (people were wearing shorts), but really not outdoor. The outdoor seating is technically inside located next to the bar with doors that open out allowing the fresh air to enter. The service is good as well as the food, but keep in mind they add 20% gratuity to the check. They have a nice view of NYC.

    The restaurant is beautiful! Windows all around with a great view of the water and the city. Wasn’t really drawn to the main dishes but the appetizers were amazing ! Would recommend getting a couple and sharing or eating as an entree. Service was ok. As an observant person I saw my family and I were not treated as special as the surrounding tables since tables were so close together. Nevertheless the service was still acceptable enough.

    I ordered a cod dish ate two fork fulls and told the waiter it was gross and I didn’t like it so he packed it up and handed it to me. $38 meal went in the garbage I worked at a restaurant for 15 years and this isn’t the standard when someone doesn’t like the dish. The cod was borderline raw
