I was really disappointed with the seating arrangements. We were sat at the opposite side of the window when there were open tables that were next to the window. I chose this restaurant strictly based off of the view and I did not have one. Extremely disappointed
Wonderful dinner. This is our special event celebration place. Great food and service.
Beautiful setting. Creative food presentation. Delicious!
Anniversary for us was beautiful
Perfect. From the flower filled entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge dessert. Perfect. Thank you Buzzy.
El servicio y la comida fue espectacular!!!! Muchísimas gracias por todo, fue realmente una experiencia de excelencia
Wonderful experience! Have wanted to go there for quite some time. They did not disappoint. From the ambiance to the food to the service. Everything was terrific. Our server Jed was the best! We will be back.
I would recommend the River Cafe to anyone looking for a super special meal in a special place. Food, staff, view are perfect. I live here and am sorry it took me all these years to get here. Hint:best way to go to brunch is via the NYC Ferry.
Fabulous food impeccable service
All the staff made the visit extra special
I went to The River Cafe in 2016 and had a great experience. My guest and I always do the 6-course chef's tasting with the wine pairing. In 2016 it was impeccable, from the food to the wine to the service. Perfect. Fast forward to 2019 and we were treated as if it was a surprise we were at the restaurant. I had to ask for the 6-course menu (which they had no copy of) and I had to ask for the wine pairing. When I requested both for the table, the waiters acted taken aback by my request. It was insulting. I felt as if we were being rushed in and out. Which was obvious with the changes to the dining room and the cramped space. The River Cafe has lost its appeal. I eat at Michelin restaurants all over the world and I won't be going back to TRC anymore.
Wonderful service, outstanding food, as always.
Worth every accolade it has received. View, service, food all spectacular. Take the relatively new NYC Ferry. The landing is directly next door.
From the minute you walk thru the door you are treated like royalty. The staff and service are outstanding. The food and view can't be beat.
Wonderful service, view, food!!!! Should be on everyone's to do list!!
Perfect in every way for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We can’t wait to return, hopefully sooner than another ten years.
Perfect site We chose the 3-course menu, and with the starters they put on and repeat drinks we ended up paying $ 450, but it was worth it. My mother told me it was the most beautiful dinner she had ever had. Perfect live pianist. We asked to be at the window and they put us there as soon as there was a free table. And the views are ... amazing
The River Cafe next disappoints! The food, ambiance & setting is unmatched. A bit pricey but perfect for a special occasion!
Beautiful setting over the East River and under the Brooklyn Bridge. We have been here before for special occasions and have never been disappointed. Quiet piano music ( and he never took a break all night).
Walked from A train Brooklyn Bridge subway stop after Wednesday matinee of Hamilton. Food was outstanding and it is very expensive $$. Worth it !
Great nite fabulous food, service and views.
The river cafe was a wonderful experience. The food was delectable and service did not fail to disappoint. The only concern we had is that the mela was on the expensive end. This won’t be a monthly spot but is amazing for special occasions.
Beautiful setting, amazing service, delicious food
Un sitio extraordinario me encanto , lo unico un poco caro, pero esto es lo que hay..
The overall price level is not ok compared to what you get. Service is not very friendly only quick
The entire experience was absolutely amazing! The restaurant itself is very pretty with so many fresh flowers outside of the place and also inside the restaurant, on the dining table. Then, the waiter and waitress are super nice and friendly. Josh is the best, who served is champagne and complimentary desserts! I feel welcome and special!!
The view of Brooklyn bridge is the highlight but anything else is really outstanding, food is great!
This restaurant was recommended by a friend. I was visiting NYC with my 16 and 19 yr old grandkids and decided to treat them to something special...and indeed it was! The decor and setting is lively, food was beautifully presented and service impeccable. Since I’m a piano teacher as well...I’d comment that the live piano music was great. The only criticism I’d have is, that for the price, it would have been good if coffee/tea etc were included in the buffet cost.
Fabulous fine dining restaurant! From the time you hand over your car key to the valet to the time you exit the restaurant the experience is exquisite! The hosts are gracious, the service is outstanding and the food is a culinary delight. We were mesmerized with the presentation of each dish, the colors and the ingredients which kept teasing us with different flavors! Add to this the lovely views of the East river and Brooklyn Bridge. Honestly I didn’t want to leave the restaurant, I enjoyed the experience so much! I highly recommend this restaurant!
Phenomenal service and atmosphere
food was amazing
An outstanding dining experience. One of the best in New York!
Beautiful view, wonderful service, great Lemon Drop. Nice portions. The signature dessert delicious. Great for a celebration. Atmosphere was wonderful. I would love to have the experience again.
Wonderful, magical evening. Often, restaurants that are located in a beautiful setting don't have the best food, but the River Cafe is not only a stunning restaurant, the food was exceptional as well.
Everything was perfect!!! Amazing food, gorgeous food, superb service!
Spectacular view of Manhattan and Brooklyn bridge. best view in New York. Food and service are impressive too.
We had such an amazing experience at The River Cafe. The staff was attentive and the food was spectacular. Totally worth the price!
Posto meraviglioso, cibo ricercato e molto buono
celebrate my husbands birthday and it was a sucess, we will absolutly come back
Ein Klassiker, der an Attraktivität über die Jahre nichts eingebüßt hat. Einfach gut gemacht. Allerdings gnadenlos teuer. 4 Personen, Standard-Menü, 1 Flasche italienischen Weißwein aus dem unteren Preisdrittel, Taxi vom Hotel und zurück = knapp 1.000 US-Dollar. Danke Deutschland. Dafür entspricht die gastronomische Betreuung den gleichermaßen hochwertigen europäischen Standards. Und in New York kostet das - bzw in Verbindung mit einem einzigartigen Blick - dann halt entsprechend.... Unbedingt zu empfehlen, eine tolle Erfahrung.
We lucked into a window table. It was a magical spot to dine. Service was excellent. Food very good and overall a really lovely evening.
Wonderful. We loved. Amazing environment and food.
I will back.
