Post COVID this is the spot to go. Great experience and ambience. Food is very good too
Had an amazing time. The view was great and the food was wonderful. Cosmo was an excellent server and took good care of me and my date. Will be back.
This was a birthday dinner and they sang for other customers, but even after acknowledging they knew it was a birthday, skipped it for my wife. The food was
good yet way overpriced.
It was a very pleasant experience. A beautiful atmosphere with delicious food.
Friend and family
Welcome was beyond rude. Place was empty. Told if we sit by fire pit table could only order apps and could not have lunch. Place was empty. Ridiculous. Waiters had no masks on at all or wore under chin. Won’t return. Bartenders wore no masks. Think illegal.
Great ambiance and the food was good. You only have a reservation for two hours and because of that I feel the waiters were rushing and I felt like they were pushing us out
Outstanding location and views with outdoor heat lamps for the chilling weather but the staff has GOT to properly wear masks at all times. Diners have no choice but to remove masks when eating but the staff has got to do a better job of consistently covering their nose and in some cases their actual mouth with their mask. Not sure risk is worth the food. Great location so get it together please.
The only thing I was disappointed was that I requested a table by the window when I made the reservation and when we got there there wasn’t any table available where I requested! Besides this, the service was really good, the food was delicious and the volume was perfect! We were in five and we could have a conversation without yelling.
Not only was everything so delicious, the service was impeccable!
Amazing food ! Amazing view.. overall our waiter was so nice and sweet. Made my moms birthday truly great. Thank you
Waterside is my favorite restaurant in New Jersey the staff is always amazing. They never disappoint!
Nice good time
Everything was great up until the tables were moved around and almost everyone was outdoors. It was too crowded, no social distancing as I wasn't wearing a mask at my table. but other than that the food, drinks and service was great!!!!!
Everything was delicious, ordered what ever you want
It had been years since we had been back to Waterside, having had two negative prior experiences. Giving it a final shot, nothing has changed. The food continues to disappoint. Tuna tartare appetizer comes out looking like cat food on a plate with greasy wontons. Seafood with Cappellini is unfortunately overcooked to the point the lobster is grainy and the pasta is mush. The service was wanting, but more importantly many of the staff are incorrectly wearing masks (chin guarding is not the point of a mask), including the manager, while the seating is as close together as if there wasn’t an active pandemic. The ambiance and view are great, but if you actually value quality food, drinks, and service, pass over Waterside there’s better options in the area to support.
Waterside Restaurant was a beautiful venue for dinner. We will absolutely visit again! The food was delicious!
The food is very good and the atmosphere outside is spectacular!
great view & food. Waiter was a little short with us but all in all we enjoyed the food.
The hostess was very rude and my wife and i was seated poorly and when asked to sit in Several open tables we were told that they were reserved for elite guest. The scenery and ambiance is great but the service was terrible and i would not recommend this place for anyone of color.
Nice view, good food, but I tables were a little close to each other, making it relatively short of 6 feet distance and capable of overhearing neighboring tables.
Relaxing and beautiful.
A perfect place for a perfect family events. Would definitely go back.
Amazing food, service and GREAT DRINKS!
Friend’s dinner! Perfect as usual!
We really enjoyed the food and the service was great I will definitely go back.
First time here in outdoor dining. Food and everything was good. It was a bit chilly and windy out. If it were warmer, it would have been perfect.
A bit chilly but I love outdoor dining. I had seafood capellini which was delish
Everything was exceptional!
I went to this restaurant with my wife and friends around 8:30 in a very slow night upon arrival we ordered drinks and we want to order some appetizers and the server refused because he say we have to order entree because the restaurant don't allow you to order app not matter how hungry you are .in order for us to order some app we have to order 2 appetizers each afternoon we have been a very good customer for a very long time supporting then during COVID-19 that what we get the manager was very rude he's said he can't not do anything about.my friend and I will never go back to this place
2nd visit...love the outdoor ambiance & views. Makes all the difference during covid. Food & service were good as well.
Fantastic food, great service, with the NYC skyline as a backdrop. What else could you ask for?
Appetizers clams oreganata and garlic shrimp had no flavor at all. They made me wait 20 minutes outside because apparently you need to be 25 to get in on a Friday night even though I had reservations to eat dinner.
The staff accommodated us outside dining, a bit cool, by turning outdoor heaters on and off according to our whims.
Food excellent, risotto with filet tips and mushrooms...
My compliments to Francis...hope to see her next visit.
Delicious food and good ambiance. I would recommend for special occasions.
Made a reservation for me and my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. I made a request for a birthday dessert at the end of dinner and we never received one or any acknowledgment. I don’t have a large appetite and I appreciate fine dining but the portions for dinner are extremely small- it’s like a kid’s meal. We were still hungry after an appetizer and our entrees. Pretty poor value considering the price tag. The sauce for the black cod dish was overly sweet. I asked for a substitution for this dish and was quickly turned down, no big deal but strange they don’t accommodate that. The view is great and the ambiance is beautiful with the city’s skyline. That’s what you’re paying for. There’s plenty of other restaurants along that road with the same view and better food.
restaurant, vibe, scene was all wonderful. Service was excellent and even the manager or owner came out to greet us. Must try the lamb riblets!
We had a reservation for 2 pm, on time and we were seated promptly. The restaurant had a few scattered occupants. We were seated by the water side, placed our order for drinks, placed our order for entres, while waiting, and 80% of the restaurant is empty, they sat a party of 5 at the table next to us, certainly no more than ONE foot away, I can smell the next person’s deodorant. In COVID times, the rules of social distancing apply still for outside seating. I expressed my concerns to the waitress who said she can’t do anything about it, she sent the manager who proposed moving us rather than the party they just Sat. If that is not not ridiculous and insulting, I don’t know what is. My wife asked me to just move and keep us all safe, finish our lunch peacefully and let it go, so I did. I’d personally would have left and reported it to the health department. We were moved AND our food to another table and finished, skipped desert and coffee. The food was good, service was professional but not friendly, I guess I should have not said anything and risk my health and my family’s health, NOT. Management never bothered to stop by to offer and apology or even a glass of water as a friendly gesture for their poor decisions. The food was good, the location is very good. Would not go back for a WHILE!!! If you’re worried about social distancing, not the spot for you.
The waiter I had was good. I had a good time with my date. I was not impressed with the food or the drinks that night. It was just OK. The $200 for food & drinks for 2 wasn’t worth it.
