Horrible Dinner Experience .. start to finish.
Reservations not honored searing based on unorganized hostess “SYSTEM “.. outdoor seating is cheap decor and uncomfortable. Food was not superb taste was basic. Dinner for two $178 for that price alone food should have Been exceptional/ Dining it was not. View is nice however you have to step down and risk table being cleared by management. Server was ok, she recommended seafood unfortunately husband is allergic to shellfish. Steak was pricey and not cooked as ordered. Will definitely not recommend ever or return as a guest.

It is a beautiful location and the views are amazing. Very loud music, more disco type than to have a nice sit down dinner. One of our entrees was overcooked and overly priced. Our waiter heard our complaint and removed that from our check. Again, they could work on making the ambiance more inviting.

Went for my wife’s birthday! The food was mediocre at best too few servers per table so we were continually waiting. Did not acknowledge let alone do anything for birthday despite reminding them when we arrive.
Awesome view but that’s it!

It was a good experience. I was expecting to order from the menu, but it was Buffett. They had good salads, no too many options for the main course, but it was really good overall. The view is amazing. Good service too.

The restaurant had a lovely view of the Hudson River and Manhattan. The receptionist was friendly, professional and accommodating. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre at best--nothing special. We were most disappointed in the service. Our waiter and his assistant were rushing us from the moment we were seated. They seemed impatient even while we were deciding between flat or sparkling water. Even people at McDonald's are more patient than that! When taking our order, the waiter was impatient and seemed to be too busy to answer questions. He seemed annoyed at the question we were asking. His assistant took our bread plates away when we were still enjoying the bread. We found it offensive that he took away our child's bread plate right from under him as he was reaching for another slice of bread. Your waiters need to be taught etiquette and basic manners. For the prices you charge, clients want to experience better service than that. We left wondering how training is conducted at Waterside, if any, and by whom, and whether your staff receives continuing education on customer service. We will not be returning.

The outside patio was outstanding, the server was attentive and not overbearing. The food was spectacular and the dessert was decadent. I recommend that if you haven’t experienced dinning at the Waterside don’t hesitate make a reservation and go enjoy.

Incredible view of manhattan. Lots of seats outside on the water. There was a nice breeze. Casual atmosphere but great to dress up. DJ on weekends and the bar turns into a dance floor. Lots of fun. If you’re with a group order the special dessert. It easily feeds more than 4 people.

The hosted had an attitude I understand she was probably overwhelmed but not my fault. I had to ask for bread they wouldn’t bring it I had to ask for refill of water. The food was ok. They seem to have a preference for regular costumers. Did not like their attitude told my friends don’t waste your time or money not worth it would rather go to the chart house much nicer staff.

The wait staff was quite rude to me and my date. First we both ordered salads and they said you can’t sit outside unless you order a main course, well sorry for being healthy. Then at the moment to pay the bill we ask the waiter to split the bill based on what we ordered, he said I don’t know what you ordered, then we marked it for him on the bill, then he said you need to add it for me and give me the amount. So we did that and finally left. Really poor experience at this place which is sad since the view is nice

Our evening was great, until our Server decided to hover over us, waiting to close out the check. Our champagne glasses were full, so we obviously were not in a rush, although she must’ve been. Otherwise, a fantastic evening.

We had a view of the river from our table which was beautiful and the lighting and music set the stage for wonderful ambiance. However our service was extremely slow although the place was not overly busy. It took 20 minutes before our first drinks showed up. They also don't allow you to place an appetizer order immediately and require you to place your entire order all at the same time. This delays getting appetizers which took over 30 minutes to show up. Our food however was outstanding. The lobster bisque mash potatoes may be the best mash potatoes may be the best I've ever had. In spite of the slow drinks and appetizers, we would go back again.

We had a wonderful time. Celebrating my moms birthday with my daughters and my sister. We all loved our meal, the outdoor seating was great. The service was great-one server even went down by the water and took several group pictures of us.
