Horrible hostess who is rude. Bad service from waiter. Not recommend for anyone who is LGBTQ+. They were super nasty about my wife and my anniversary. It was completely disappointing and ALMOST ruined the evening… good thing we got out of there and went somewhere else! Plus we find fun wherever we go. It’s very hard for us to be somewhere and be THIS unhappy, but this place took the cake for worst dining experience in a long time.
Mediocre experience ! The staff find it difficult to serve when there are too many guests
If you’re looking for a place to go out with friends and have drinks you can’t beat the view of the river and NYC. But other than that I wouldn’t recommend going for the food which was at best ok and sometimes, pretty bad. Appetizers were decent, however a bite into a scallop revealed it had been frozen before (and maybe refrozen) with a strong ammonia taste. It’s a shame that the food couldn’t be better because this is prime real estate overlooking the city skyline.
I want a refund I paid for VIP and didn't get any service. My table was even ready. No server was available. Total disappointment
Great views, good food and cocktails. Nice ambience
The view and the location is amazing. The sunset over the river looking on the West side highway is absolutely gorgeous.
The service right now everywhere is lackluster because of the shortage. However the attention for the amount of tables was a little short. The restaurant were paying attention to other tables more than others.
The menu was absolutely huge for this type of restaurant. I enjoyed the variety, the ragu was amazing the appetizers were well portioned.
I would highly recommend going to check this out, it would be a fun group outing.
The ambiance is amazing. Great views and very good mix of music. To start it would have been nice to get 4 pieces of bread given that we were four at the table. Also I wish I could have called my waiter by name but I didn’t get the chance to know it for the welcome greeting was “hi how are you? What will you have to drink?” The lobster tacos were so disappointing. You get 3 one inch tacos for about $19. Had the taste would of been at par I would have not mind. The stake was ok but could use a better presentation for a $100. Bartenders do know what they are doing, my Moscow mule was right on point. Delicious wine. Also the valet team need to be a little more organized and welcoming.
Me and wife went to waterside on a date. We both fell in love with view until the food came than we fell in love with too. She had ink pasta which was amazing. I had the steak frites which was amazing and I loved the fires.
The whole experience was divine.
Kudos to the staff
Always a great experience. Staff very professional and nice. Always have lunch here.
My friends Birthday. We ordered 3 different appetizers , they were all delicious. Then we each had an entree as well and shared all three. One was better than the next!! It was perfect!
The food is very very average. The service is very transactional, almost rude. There’s absolutely no emphasis on customer service or courtesy. They realize you come for the ambiance. The views are fantastic
My experience at Waterside was terrible. The only thing that saved my night was the dj! I took my boyfriend out to eat for his birthday on a Saturday and made reservations for outdoor dining. I got there on time 9:30pm and they did not seat us until 10:00pm. Then when they seated us at the table, they told us we can’t seat you outside because other guest are still seated at the table outside. But I had a reservation so how was I not able to get what I requested? Second the waiter was not present for us at all and forgot to put some of my order in to the kitchen. So now I didn’t even get to have my full order. All the waiter said to me was “I forgot” and I asked him can you put the rest of the order in now and he said no because the kitchen is closing. On the website it clearly states that the kitchen doesn’t close until 11pm and at this time it was 10:30. Furthermore my boyfriend asked for some extra sauce in which he never brought back either. I had to ask another waiter to get my waiter and it took him at least 15 minutes to even find him. We both ordered the salmon in which was very over cooked so we couldn’t eat that either. Then I told them it was his birthday so that they can sing happy birthday. I literally saw like 4 other tables that had birthdays and they came and sang happy birthday with a dessert and they never came to my table. When my waiter finally came to the table I just asked for the check. Furthermore I didn’t even know that my boyfriend was supposed to propose to me at the restaurant and he couldn’t do it because I was so upset and just wanted to leave. This was a very bad experience for me!
Restaurant is drop dead beautiful. Service was good.
Food last night was mixed.
Shrimp cocktail and clams were fresh and presented well.
Salmon was overcooked
Broccoli rabe was well prepared and tasty
Nutella crepes for dessert were excellent
The view is amazing, food delicious with wide variety and service was on point.
What a view - what a view 👍
I drink wasn't made properly, the server spilled parmesan cheese all over the table and all of my wife. The table that we sat at was not level, it was held even by shims and a cork. In all my wife did not enjoy her food or her drink. My lasagna was excellent and the appetizers were very good. I give it overall a C.
Great place to go on a date
Waiter was very unprofessional.
Everything is Best - view, atmosphere, food, ambience… best place for every occasion
Beautiful place, doubt we’d go back.
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food we received on our plates. Waterside gives you a sizable portions of food for the price. The seafood pasta was incredible and very flavorful
Had a great time, waiter was great! Thank you very much
Service could have been friendlier, food was ok at best not anything special
The ambiance is amazing. The restaurant wasn't crowded. Drinks were tasty. Food was not good. We enjoyed the fritto misto appetizer but the rest of the food was not seasoned well or did not taste good at all.
NYC skyline backdrop. Fantastic Ambiance. Outdoor dining. People Watching. Viagra Alley. Overpriced food. Average food quality. Decent service. Automatic 20% gratuity.
Nice place with excellent view
The service was overstanding, specially our waiter Manny,
Had an excellent dinner with my wife. Service was amazing and the view was brilliant. Try to go just before sunset, thank me later.
We enjoyed our food, lobster tacos were basic. Seafood pasta a tad overpriced for worth came back clumped together definitely not al dente. Flavor was good, view was beautiful! Best part is location and view
Love everything about this place - home run !
Had a wonderful time celebrating my husband and brother-in-laws B-day’s
Server was awesome too!!! Thanks Jose
The best time
Good food and service, incredible views. Would recommend for a special occasion or date night.
Always have lunch here. Always great!
The food was much better the last two times we went unfortunately. Inconsistent. Beautiful views and great service.
Went to lunch here with a girl friend. The Service was amazing the food was OK. I felt The portions and flavor of the food could of been better. For the price we paid for the appetizers we could of got way more. We paid 19$ for two pieces of egg rolls which I felt was over priced.
More entertainment is needed . All the dishes are excellent. The place is awesome. Waitress are great
Lovely place. Good good. Too noisy.
Great view can’t save terrible service and slipping food
What a find! Beautiful views dining outdoors on the Hudson. Food was great and the service top notch. Looking forward to going back
