Our group of 7 fell into this restaurant a very tired bunch from our daylong excursion walking the streets of New York City. We were welcomed with open arms and treated like royalty, truly. We only wanted coffee and dessert and not a full dinner. We thought this might be a problem but the manager welcomed us with open arms. The waiter was superb and so attentive to us. I cannot say enough good things about our experience in this restaurant. It was truly a very cozy place to eat. The table was beautiful and the place settings were magnificant. My advice - eat here!

Even on a rainy day, it's relaxing to watch the birds glide above the river. The food was delicious and the atmosphere cozy. I'll be back, and hope to enjoy the panoramic view with some sun!

not only is everything ridiculously overpriced, the staff is obnoxiously rude and inattentive. i will not be back. i thought that the view would be worth dealing with the problems other reviewers mentioned---well, it's NOT. seriously, enjoy the view from the pier but stay away from this tourist trap wasteland. i would rather have bought a beer and thrown my money into the water.

I really wanted to like this place, but have decided they depend on one-time tourists. Long waits for someone to seat us, table set up with no top cloth, bad food, indifferent service. I was AMAZED to read in the Times that they are owned by the Rosie O'Grady people. Shame!

There is no way anyone would leave this place a satisfied customer. The view was nice, but that was it. The food and service were horrible. My boyfriend had the salmon...which was frozen and overcooked, on a bed of frozen spinach. I had the lobster ravioli, also frozen...and they don't even bother to make sauce! When we complained about our food being unedible, the manager didn't dispute the fact that we had just paid a ton for frozen food, and offered to amend the situation by buying us a drink.

The atmoshere is nice, but it is a bit over priced.

This place is a rip-off. My husband and I, and many others, went to Harbor Lights Restaurant on the Fourth of July because we were led to believe that we could view the fireworks here against the backdrop of the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge which they have a great view of. They charged a special $75 pre-fixe menu for this occasion to sit on their deck and view the fireworks. In fact, when the fireworks started, only brief cut off glimpses of the fireworks could be viewed. We should have been tipped off by the fact that the waiters collected everybody's credit cards before we were served because they said in past years people rushed off to see the fireworks without paying their bills. The only thing going for this restaurant is their beautiful view. The food is ordinary and expensive. We will never go here again.
