I was there fir Father’s day dinner with my family. Spent over $220 for six ppl.
Service was okay.
Food - Salty. ( I eat less salty.) Tried to put too much emphasis on the seasoning on the dish that made the food salty.
Quality of food was um... on the less favorable side. Over priced for food that wasn’t prepared with care. Under cooked chicken breast and pork porterhouse. Pastas were simply salty.
Wanna be charthouse...
Definitely not worth the price. I’d rather eat next door at the diner.

Food was good. Service must be approved. It was very rushed. The servers stopped by 6-7 times asking to remove our appetizers while we were still eating it. It started 5 minutes after it was served. They brought the main course literally 30 mins after we arrived and while we still worked on appetizers. That was a bad service call. Also, the restaurant must invest on outside tables and chairs. They appear very old, uncomfortable, and look cheap.
On the good note, we still enjoyed our time out, food, and the gorgeous views.

Overpriced food and staff will follow to your car and question you if you didn't leave a big enough tip, which is embarrassing and rude.

The staff was very accommodating. We made a reservation for 6 but showed up with a group of 10. They were very nice to us and allowed us to take pictures outside even though the outside seating wasn’t open. The food was delicious and outside of being proposed to just having a nice family dinner at Waterside was special enough

First time sat at a table been there for parties and the bar. Took my son to see if he would want graduation dinner here. He had bang bang shrimp and it was small but good. I had the stuffed eggplant which I liked. For dinner he had the black pasta he thought it was very good especially with the crumbled dry salami. I had the salmon over cooked. Edges black and the fish was very dry. I could not eat it. I will toss this as a one off cause I have had great meals at the bar. But was very disappointed. Big plus the valet guys are great

This place is beautiful, great service, delicious food and drinks, the only issue was, I made a City view reservation Online, I called the restaurant to confirm my reservation and to make sure, what I requested, their answer was City view reservation was not guarantee, depending on availability upon arrival, why to make a reservation then, they suggested if we want to seat outside and they will provide a heater, well I tried not to make a big deal of it and we enjoyed the night.

Went on a Tuesday night for my birthday celebration. We had the seafood salad, arugula salad, the black cod and the seafood capellini, which were very good. The frito mixto was mostly calamari. Service was attentive and they brought out a sparkler to celebrate my birthday. It is probably noisy when the DJ is playing but I prefer the quiet NYC view. Will come back when it is warmer to sit outside and try some of the other dishes and cocktails.

We had a reservation for six, fortunately only five of us were there because the table was barely enough for four. They also had a bridal shower, and a baby shower during brunch so it was very crowded and noisy. Not the ambience I was looking forward to have a relaxing brunch with my family. The service was just Ok- as I guess they were busy with the other events. Overall just ok

The restaurant have a beautiful view of the city, but overall the food is not worth the price we paid. I went for Easter brunch, maybe the regular lunch menu would’ve been better. The restaurant was also very crowded and the tables were too close to each other, so it was hard to navigate in between the seats/tables to go to the buffet area.

The food quality was poor, our server should've been a dishwasher, we could barely understand a word he said. They give them selves an automatic 20% tip even for a party of 2, although the service was lacking.

When I booked my birthday reservation for 4/20, no one sang Happy Birthday to me, but the waiters did for others in the restaurant, and brought them a piece of cheesecake. I got nothing.
When we ordered, “No onions” for both guests, we got two plates smothered with onions. Glad we didn’t need the Epi-Pen. My husband and I were there, however, the waitstaff paid more attention to the families, not us.
Thanks for a really lousy birthday. I don't have many left. We have spent thousands in your restaurant and even had our Wedding Reception there, but this is the final straw.
We will spread the word about really lousy service.

Nice ambience, but way too loud for dinner after 8 pm on Friday.
Had trouble hearing the people at my table. Everyone kept misunderstanding each other and asking "Sorry, what did you say"?
Would not return for that reason.

Had an absolutely amazing experience, all the food was delicious and came out very quickly. My only complaint was the lack of filling in the raviolis as well as the very low quantity for the price. Other than the semi-disappointing ravioli, my partner and I had a phenomenal time and will definitely be returning.

We got married here, had dinner several times and the service is unmatched. The food is amazing the view is hard to beat. We will continue to come here for years to come. Try the bang bang shrimp, sea scallops, cod fish and the salmon you can’t go wrong. Strawberry cheese cake with the sorbet is a win as well. I can’t wait to go back

Enjoyed our experience at Waterside Restaurant! We went on a Friday night and it did not seem too busy at 7pm. We were sat at a table right next to a party of about 20 or more, so that made conversation a little difficult. The view was excellent and we took pictures on the patio outside before leaving. Food was good. I ordered the ravioli and would not order it again. The other guests ordered the salmon and steak and said they were delicious. We enjoyed a bottle of wine for a reasonable price and ended the meal with coffees. Would definitely go again and would like to check out the upstairs next time we visit. The valets were greatly helpful as they helped me air up a low tire on the way out. Superb service!

Took my family to Waterside for Sunday Brunch to celebrate a birthday. It was a fantastic experience in every way. The young lady who took the reservation could not have been nicer and arranged for a window-side table. The food (buffet style) in terms of both quality and selection was terrific and there was not a line as you find at some places. Additionally, the wait staff was extremely welcoming and very attentive. Lastly, we were not rushed in the least and ended the brunch with wonderful coffee and desserts. Overall, a great place to go for a special occasion.

Everything was good but be sure to check your bill. Our table was charged an extra bottle of wine after being told the house did not have any of that wine in stock.
