Have been a frequent patron as enjoy their grilled fish. This time the staff was not at all accommodating. We were seated among several very large tables. We ordered a Caesar salad to share and were not given an extra plate. My husband eventually tracked down our server who blamed the glitch on the individual bringing out the salad. I ordered a $57 tomahawk steak and had a difficult time changing the French fries on the menu for another type potato. We were told no substitutions which is fine for a casual inexpensive place bit not for pricey fine dining. The food os OK but they have lost our patronage.

For such a beautiful location, I can't believe you can't staff up your kitchen properly. I have never tasted blander food that was over-cooked and felt barely prepared at all. It tasted like you threw the ingredients on a plate and microwaved them with no seasonings at all. You should cut your losses and sell that space to someone who deserves it. Really pathetic.

Awesome waiter. Ariel. He was amazing. Food was amazing. Only thing I could really say needs to be changed is the music. Having a DJ play very loud music at 730 was a little disappointing. It felt more of a club than a nice dinner. And guys at the bar area yelling over the game on tv. That was also very annoying as other people are trying to enjoy their dinner at a top scale restaurant. Other than that it was very nice.

I thought it would of been a higher dress code towards “ dress to impress” and it really was “Pay the Bill” type of situation. Food was good but needed that extra unfum. To get you over the hump. But that’s me and my wife.

Fabulous night dining under the stars. Our seafood pasta was incredible, the service simply impeccable - and the view of Manhattan spectacular. Highly recommended for a most memorable evening. These superlatives are accurate and well-earned!

Amazing customer service. Great views of Manhattan. The staff were very polite and accommodating. Food was amazing. We had the veal (delicious) and seafood capellini (amazing). For appetizers the west coast oysters were fresh and the lamb rib-let ...to die for....should consider making that an entree.
I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends and would return to this restaurant.
Great for dates as well as hanging with friends.

The thing here is you go for the view which is wonderful. It was an uncommonly beautiful end of summer breeze with a delightful breeze under the outside canopy. The brunch was $39 including an alcoholic beverage. There was a mimosa which was sweet and with little orange juice. The Eggs Benedict had a soggy English muffin. They did not replenish the bacon and sausages. When I asked for half and half or cream for coffee, they did not have it. The guacamole was very good.

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.

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.
