    A Pleasure every Time

    Most of the times we come to New York we have dinner at this restaurant. After managing to sit at the window we get exactly what we are coming for: A dinner we can not have in Berlin but only in NYC with a view on Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. The fo

    Very special in every way

    Before 9/11 the River Cafe & Top of the World were considered the best restaurants from which to see New York. The River Cafe remains as a singularity, filled with exquisite flowers & nestled near the waterline of the East River. Some time ago I took fr

    The rich tourists

    A place for rich tourists! If you have a couple of extra hundred bucks to spend, i reccomend it cause of the view. The food wasn't all that good. We were sorrounded by richsters and goldiggers, so it isn't the most classy place.

    The most memorable dinner in New York

    We, two couples, celebrated two of our 60th birthdays at The River Cafe last night. The view, food, service, ambiance, were unsurpassed. None of us would have changed a thing. We will remember the experience and will be talking about it forever.

    a bit over rated

    My friends ordered the duck dish recommended by the server and I ordered the sea bass. I was happy with my entree but my friends found the duck to be undercooked and gamey and left most of it on the plate. The food seem to be a hit or miss. The view wa

    Tavern on the Green, Brooklyn

    I have to agree with the anonymous reviewer below. I went for brunch with a friend, just to check it out, and while the setting and view were spectacular, the food was only so-so, and very expensive for what it was. Truly, it felt like I stepped through a

    Not quite in the league it thinks it is

    It's sad, given the gorgeous space, the beautiful view, the ambiance, that the food is just not quite up to where it's price thinks it is. You're paying for that scenery, no question, not what's on your plate. The food is good, mind you, just not $98 p
