Very good food, great view. Did not like how they stuck us in the corner. The table was in an awkward position.
Unbelievable. My family and I decided to eat out for Thanksgiving Day, much to our chagrin. We arrived at 3:30 for a 4:00 reservation. Management seated us right away which was a star on their side that is until after we had dined I realized why we were seated so quickly.....they had ample space; I many were smart enough to READ reviews before stepping foot in there. The order was taken at 4:00pm...we didn't get our food until 5:45. The food was disgusting....I had their salmon which was "tasteless" and drenched in some bean mash soup-like dish that resembled what would be found in an unflushed toilet. We observed another patron arguing with management over the bill, she felt she was overcharged. Our waiter never checked in on us to see how the dining was going but what right there to hand the bill with a plugged in tip....The waiters are unprofessional and mostly men. The women whom were the receptionists were quite professional and hospitable. The waiters appeared to look frustrated at the fact that they had to wait on guest.... No one is forcing them to be a waiter.... They should just hop in their Lamborghini and drive off into the sunset with Hollywood shades on smh.... Unbelievable. The place is terribly mismanaged. The only thing that is probably keeping this establishment in business is the fact that it is by the waters...... Spare yourself the headache and the waste of hard earned money..... EAT AT HOME or look at reviews BEFORE going to any restaurant.... Don't 'just' look at the stars... READ THE COMMENTS. A BIG FAT "0"... Then I forgot my cellphone in the table out of disappointment and frustration... The waiter was kind enough to bring it outside while I awaited for my car to return. Even our waiter felt bad for us but.... He just works there and he looked more like a bar tender who was asked to be a waiter for the night...... HORRIBLE
Had to track down waiters to serve food we were paying for.
Drinks were excellent along with the food dessert selections. The view of the city is breathtaking. Live DJ played great music
It was a beautiful birthday experience for my new boyfriend who had never been there. The table setting was perfect, the view and ambiance, magnificent and the food was exceptional!
At one point a family with a young child was sitting beside us. Not something I'd anticipate from a restaurant such as this one. The noise level and baby shrills kicked in but fortunately didn't last long. No fault to the restaurant.
My only disappointment was that I mentioned in the reservation that it was for a birthday. When we ordered dessert, I hinted to the waiter that I'd allow the "birthday boy" to choose. I was hopeful for a candle or something, but I guess my reservation note and hint wasn't picked up. That being said, the Creme Brule he chose was delicious!
The food was amazing, the servers were attentive, and the drinks were rather good. I suggest the spicy magherita for spicy lovers. The tomahawk steak was an amazing price and an incredible quality. The seafood was also great. The lobster tacos were good, but there could have been less guacamole and more lobster.
The food was excellent and the service was great. Recommend the pasta with mushrooms
I live in Views of the Hudson Pointe and knew all the restaurants here. We usually bring our out of state guest here for the ambience.
Food was yum
I mentioned that we’re celebrating our anniversary. Nothing was done by the restaurant .
Great food and service. Amazing view of the city. Perfect for date night!
We had the most incredible birthday dinner celebration for our future daughter-in-law. The view is amazing and we enjoyed our meals, drinks and desserts on the outdoor dining patio. The service was excellent!! We enjoyed taking pictures on the promenade with the New York City skyline behind us and enjoyed the after dinner drinks and music at the bar!! Looking forward to going back!!
We sat outside and they provided plenty of heaters. View of the Hudson River and NY Skyline was amazing. Food was perfect, wine was great. overall would def go back. We finished the night with a cocktail at the bar inside and listened to the DJ.
Classy upscale gorgeous views. Doesn’t get better then this! True vibe ambiance and amazing dishes. No need to cross the River. Hats off to the team at Waterside!
Amazing!! Restaurant was so beautiful the view was gorgeous the food was delicious the server was great and patient. EVERYTHING was really amazing
Beautiful restaurant in the water. Had a lovely time.
The food was very good quality and very tasty. The view is beautiful. We got a nice table by the window. Highly recommended.
Food and service were subpar and not worth the price. The Dj was good.
First timer, I really enjoyed the view it was epic, we had an outside table right on the water, good food I had the branzino my date had the fillet portions we good not to
Much just right. Good drink selection, the place does get busy after 7, there was a party on the top floor and the music was loud but tolerable, we will return for sure.
Great food and service. The range of appetizers is amazing!
We were placed at a table as soon as you walked in which was also next to two large swinging kitchen doors and behind the bar. Patrons at the bar and wait staff were bumping into us, knocking our jackets and bags on the floor. The noise was deafening loud as it’s more a night club than a nice restaurant. The credit card system “broke “ and unless we paid cash we were forced to use the ATM machine which had a service charge. Luckily I had enough cash to pay dinner for both myself and my friend but then the waiter claimed they did not have enough singles in the place to give us all our change back. So the waiter lost out on a better tip or perhaps that was his way to pad his tip indirectly
Will never go back there for a quiet relaxing dinner
Food was not bad though
Service is always amazing! Our waiter all 3 times we have been have been knowledgeable & great recommendations! The food is always fresh hot & delish! Must try the Bang Bang shrimp! My only complaint was we order a spaghetti with marinara for my son & instead they brought out penne with sauce & he didn’t like it so he didn’t eat any of it at all. They didn’t offer to take it off the bill or get him something else so we stopped to grab him food elsewhere but everything else was great.
10th year anniversary
View is beautiful. The outdoor area seems runned down, it has so much potential for more. Inside is nice, needs more cleaning and maintenance, no toilet paper in bathroom and no one was checking. Food was more like a chain restaurant, in one hour we were served appetizers, entrees, desserts and after drinks and done, meaning food is pre-prepped. Would only return for the view and drinks.
Service was horrible, the waiter couldn’t be bothered, valet brought me different car and didn’t even say “ sorry “ not what I expected for this place
One word “ Stunning “ The food , service and ambience were amazing ! I will make this my new favorite place to go .
Been there multiple times Friday night is my favorite. A little chilly to sit outside had a table for two that seemed like it was just stuck on to the floor but I guess with Covid everything changed. I hope things get back to normal wasn’t the vibes are used to enjoy last year or so but I’ll be back
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
It was amazing frm the view the drinks the food the staff was everything… and to top it off I got engaged there it’s was everything
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.
