    Great Experience!

    Riverpark was an all-around perfect experience. From the moment we walked in we felt so welcomed. The entire staff there was friendly and helpful and genuinely seemed to want us to have a great night. On top of all that, the food was delicious and the drinks were great. Definitely get the rack of lamb and try the desserts, you won't regret it.

    Great lunch!

    River Park's $28 3-course lunch is a great deal. There are lots of choices and the food was great -excellent fried chicken and wonderful apple tart. The server was great. Looking forward to a return visit in wamer weather when we can sit outside.

    Not recommended

    I went with a friend at 6:00pm on a Friday in the summer. There were about 8 ppl eating between the indoor and outdoor space. The host asked if we had reservations, which we didn't. Again, 6pm on a Friday in the summer. We were told they could not seat us outdoors since that is "reserved on a first-come-first-served basis" HUH??? There were two tables taken of the dozen or so there. We were told we could eat indoors, which we didn't want to do. The host then very rudely said "Well then I can't help you." And let two good-looking well-dressed women walk out! Bad move on every level. Mr Colicchio is a superb chef but needs to hire professional people who know how to treat customers. The current staff does not. We clearly have no desire to ever go back and will spread the word to our network of media professionals to stay clear of this place.

    Flavor explosion head-rush

    Wow. What more can you say. This is Colicchio's shining star. I have done the Craft restaurants many times, and they are good, but this place is great, mostly due to the Chef. Food was excellent. In my opinion, currently the best in the city. Keep in mind the place is a little out of the way, but worth the trip. For pasta we tried the squid ink chitarra and mascarpone ravioli, if these do not give you a foodie head-rush from the flavor explosions, I don't know what will. Simply two of the best pasta dishes I have had. We also tried the flatiron steak, which was really good, it is steak so you either cook it right or you do not, and for this cut is was great. However it was the brisket cake that they served with this, that was the highlight, again flavor explosion head-rush. For dessert we had the beignets, these were good, but should have additional dipping sauces. We also had the black forest sundae which was very good. Will definitely be back.

    Small portions, few choices

    Went to brunch and was extremely disappointed with choices. Most entree choices included some type of meat. Not much to choose from if you prefer an entree without meat. Brunch choices are extremely limited, particularly for a brunch menu. The size of the"entrees" are more like appetizers. Even though it was brunch and most restaurants would offer a bread basket, nothing is put on the table. One would have to order quite a few things to feel full. I would recommend that they add more varied choices to the brunch menu. The setting is very nice and the service was good.

    Mixed

    The first time I ate here (for dinner) it was totally enchanting. Delicious food, beautiful view, excellent service. The second time everything was a bit off. Music too loud, air conditioning too high (freezing), menu too pretentious, salty, and heavy, and somehow the atmosphere wasn't as relaxing. Place has a lot of promise. Give it time.

    salty food and great views

    The first time I went here the food was excellent. The second time it was unbelievably salty. My food quality score is an average of those two meals. The setting on the East River is unbeatable though and is the primary reason to come to this restaurant.
