We stopped in for an outdoor lunch. We were taken right in at our reservation time. Then it cane time to order. We wanted ANY salad with a protein added (chicken, shrimp, salmon). The waiter went to the kitchen and came back and said they cannot add anything even for extra fee!!! What the heck! So We ended up getting the plain Greek salad and wedge salad. Both tasted good but the wedge salad was drenched in the dressing. We also got the tuna tartar appretizer which came with ALOT of chips that were greasy and the tuna had a lot of spicy mayo dressing. Barely could even see the tuna. Overall not a good experience other than the nice water views. Our waiter was very nice too

Great place to catch up with old friends. After dinner we are able to order drinks and sit by the water to food music. I’d go again

El serbio fue fatal, duraban demasiado para atendernos, hasta para llevar una copa de vino se tardaban demasiado, la comida llegó fría, el vino blanco caliente, al final me lleve la comida para mi casa y ni comi allá. Muy mala la experiencia. No pienso volver.

Nice view, noisy ambience, service ok. We ordered filet of branzino and steak. Defenitely this place has no Chef, food is less than mediocre, preparation is terrible and presentation very poor, fish was dry and steak salty and overcooked. The server ignore our complaint, didn't even give us an excuse.
We know most of the best restaurants in NJ and NY, this, is one of the worst in terms of cost ratio and food quality.
This place is ok just to have a drink and enjoy the view.

The view is amazing, the food is good some appetizers could use a bit more seasoning but my entree was absolutely delicious the drinks are great! The staff is very friendly and pleasant, we had a bit of a wait for a few things but I think our server was overloaded, his personality made up for the delays. I would definitely return.

I was very disappointed in the service and quality of the food . My husband and I were there to celebrate our anniversary and our friend ‘s birthday. We each ordered an appetizer and we talked and had drinks . Our dinner came out before our appetizers. What a big disappointment. We asked to speak to a manager and she was rude and useless . Our celebrations were ruined . This establishment is very disappointing.

Although i chose to make a reservation to dine on Fathers Day i didn’t expect to have to wait over an hour for my family’s food. We were immediately seated but had to wait for our apps and entrees an extended time. The ambiance was nice but far from social distancing with regards to the table set up. While NJ continues to open up Waterside has a lot more work to do to fairly accommodate their customers.

Food and views of the NY skyline were great. Our first time out to dine in a restaurant since the Covid lockdown in mid March. Staff should be more diligent with wearing their required masks properly. Although we were seated outside, the tables were closer than 6 feet from each other.

It was the first week they open so they barely had food, half of the menu wasn’t unable. Took more than 15 minutes for a waiter to give us water or bread . Besides that the service was good and the food was delicious

I asked ahead of time for a table NOT under the awning. Upon check in hostess confirmed that w me and said it would be a wait- I agreed that’s fine - Then manager comes and seats me under awning. I asked what was purpose of waiting if you were putting me
under awning anyway. She then found us a table
2) I didn’t like that in the indoor area no one had masks on especially in bathroom.
3) My fiancé asked them to sing happy birthday to me and they never did.

Was looking for a good experience with outside dining. We were walking to our seats. My back was to the scenic backdrop of NYC. Our waiter took our order, after he told us my husband's drink order could not be made due to lack of supplies, disappeared for 45 minutes. During this time my salmon arrived dry and cold. I would have told the server, but he came back after our plates were taken away. When he did arrive, he asked if we received our main course and if we were ready for dessert. Needless to say, we did not stay. We went to a dairy queen, and enjoyed an ice cream together. Which was a blessing in disguise. We are health providers and were just looking for some time together. We tried to be more positive, but I do not think I would recommend friends.
