Service was exceptional, food very good but pricey! Glass of cheap wine for $17 a bit much.

Took my girlfriend for her 25th birthday and it was by far our best restaurant experience. The beef brisket appetizer was my favorite. The manager Yani is also a very nice guy.

Absolutely amazing! Celebrated my girlfriends 22nd birthday and had a wonderful experience. Our server Cosmo is the MAN! Courteous, friendly, responsive and most importantly attentive. Music was a good level, the aesthetic was beautiful and clean! My girlfriend and I went crazy with the appetizers and left full and satisfied. Will definitely be back and have recommended this place already to friends and colleagues.

Great restaurant and food. Wait staff was very helpful and the staff was very kind to work with us when 2 people in our party was later than expected. Gorgeous view of the city. Great value for NYE dinner. We recommend reservations and checking the place out for a nice dinner.

Wonderful staff and the manager. We were there for x-mas dinner with my daughter and her boyfriend and we really enjoyed the food and ambience! Salads, pasta, main course were all great as expected. One of the appetizer which was lobster taco- it was ok but wasn't impressed! I definitely would have liked to sit in one of the tables next to the window for better view of the city skylines. I would post another review next visit as review usually changes with the second visit! However, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone at least once!

I had the seafood pasta in lobster sauce. Absolutely spectacular, even the second time. Lots, and lots of lobster, shrimps, scallops and mussels. Service is always top notch. COVID precautions very good, lots of space between tables. Floor to ceiling windows with gorgeous views of Manhattan (incl sunset).
Me and my husband love to come here!

The majority of items on the menu shared repetitive food on the side. Both appetizer and entree meats were tough. Besides the waiter and water server, the remaining staff weren't so pleasant. It was difficult to find the restaurant in the rear without directions.

Beautiful spot in terms of ambiance. Service was average. Food was attrocious for cost. Oysters tasted old and were not properly shucked. Seafood salad was a mayo covered disaster. Maybe a better place for drinks and fried stuff but did not enjoy actual food. Many places in the area to sit by water with much better food.

Everything was lovely until the end when a large party walked thru the restaurant not wearing Masks. We were baffled and very upset to see more than 30 people walk past us maskless. It was clearly stated masks must be worn in the restaurant. The party was outside and by the water but no only maskless but no social distancing was taking place either. I would also note that while our server was wonderful and always had his mask over his nose we observed several servers whose masks were not covering their noses. We had a lovely meal but the maskless party was quite disturbing.

My friends and I were really excited to try this restaurant. We made reservations over a week in advance to be seated outside. Upon our arrival we were told, quite rudely by three hostesses each sneer worse than the one before, that although we had a reservation the wait was going to be 30 minutes oh and that it was going to cut into our 2 hour alotted reservation time. Willing to compromise we agreed to sit inside in hopes of still being able to see some of the exquisite view. Oh no. We were sat in the very back corner of the restaurant essentially in the servers station. We heard their conversations, they were on top of us, and it was uncomfortable. At this point the three of us felt we were being snubbed and taken advantage of for being, possibly naive, 25 year old women. This feeling was intensified with the service of our waiter. It took 20 minutes to get drinks, we ordered cosmos and they were given to us in wine glasses because the bar didn’t have any martini glasses. The presentation was less than impressive. It took him 25 minutes to take our food order and never checked on anything. The only time he offered to refill our water glasses is when we were presented with the check. Which maybe we could have looked past if he wasn’t constantly checking on the table of six next to us. The food was absolutely exquisite and the cooks did an incredible job, could not have asked for more in that regard. Everything else was absolutely horrendous, very disappointing would not recommend.

Beautiful restaurant with an amazing view of the city. Very clean. Masks and social distancing was adhered to. We ate outdoors which was just beautiful. Even when it’s cool they have abundance of area heaters which was perfect. The owners were extremely attentive and made the experience special. The specialty drinks were delicious and unique. Our appetizers, dinner and dessert was perfect. Start to finish we had a wonderful evening and will definitely return.

I live in the neighborhood and have eaten here often. The food is usually good but today it was awful. The salad was soggy and everything tasted like it was precooked earlier in the day and didn’t taste fresh. What a shame that such a beautiful place with amazing views has terrible food. Will not visit again.

Honestly, couldn’t believe how amazing the service, the food and the ambiance was despite COVID. Been to plenty high end places twice as expensive and they haven’t delivered the level of service and the attention to detail that this place did. Highly recommended
