My girlfriend and I found ourselves walking around Battery Park City looking for a restaurant with outdoor seating that didn't cost a fortune. We stumbled on Liberty View and decided to give it a shot. It was one of the most pleasant dining surprises we've had in awhile. The setting: The name doesn't lie, from their tree shaded tables you get beautiful views of Lady Liberty herself and the Hudson River. The service: Unlike a lot of Chinese restaurants, the wait staff was extremely polite, helpful and attentive. Our waiter was prepared with excellent recommendations based on our tastes. The food: Fantastic, top notch Shanghai cuisine. And, I mean Joe's Shanghai quality Soup Dumplings, Lion's Head meatballs, and bean curd with Chinese celery. Plus, brown rice for the health conscious and nice cold beers served in chilled glasses for the rest of us. As we watched the sun go down over the Hudson River, and sighed in satisfaction and agreed that Liberty View was reason enough to venture to Battery Park City, not something we usually think of doing for a meal.

I've only ordered to go here. The food is ok. Found it very greasy. Don't think I would order again.

It's hard to find good restaurants in the Financial District. This is one of the few. Liberty View has great takeout and perfect for outdoor dining on warm evenings. The food is pretty good... it's the closest thing to Chinatown without actually walking over to Canal Street. Highly recommended.

Everything is good here. The best Chinese delivery down- downtown. The food is fresh and the leftovers stay and don't congeal which is always nice. Stock up on monday and keep it all week!

Wonderful addition to lower manhattan! The cuisine is varied and always perfect. Service a bit rushed but the food..! the food!.. As if that wasn't enough the view (and especially sitting outside) will certainly make it a great experience!. Go before you need reservations a month in advance!
