Central Park BoatHouse Reviews List

Central Park BoatHouse

With their 1858 landscaping plan under construction, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux began adding architectural features to their Park design. Around 1874, Vaux designed a two-story boathouse at the eastern end of the Lake. Here visitors could purchase refreshments, take boat rides, and watch other boats. After this wooden Victorian structure with sloping mansard roof burned down, the current Loeb Boathouse took its place in the 1950s. Today at the New York Boathouse visitors can enjoy a meal in any season, with overhead heating helping to extend as long as possible the pleasure of dining on the deck overlooking the Lake. Come visit a New York legend!

"For a late lunch on a beautiful spring weekday, the Boathouse was the perfect spot! It was crowded but service was great!
Cocktails and Crabcake app were yummy.

"I made the reservation for 5:30 pm so my niece and I would have enough time to enjoy a leisurely meal and still get to our play. We were seated promptly, got a seat by the lake, and had a wonderful server. I forgot his name and feel bad about that. His recommendation for me of the salmon dinner was perfect and my niece loved the seared ahi dinner. We felt special to be eating at such an iconic dining spot and happy to have excellent food. So many destination restaurants are disappointing.
I was also happy with my choice of the Elderflower Cosmos cocktail. Delicious.
Long live the Loeb!

"Have always wanted to dine at this iconic restaurant and we were thrilled it was a gorgeous day in central park. Definitely recommend making reservations, as we did, other "walk in"diners get cranky when you get seated before them. We had a wonderful server and thoroughly enjoyed our meal."

"Had a waitress (whose name I didn't get) that was superb! My friend and I were "catching up" and spent a long time at table (and lots of wine). It was a moderately warm night and our waitress knew we wanted some fresh air and kept moving the window panels to coordinate the "wants" of all the tables around us. Overall really excellent service and better food than in the past."

"Although this was a "bucket list" item for us non-New Yorkers, it is not a touristy location. The food was excellent, as were the drinks, and the wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. Lovely, relaxing spot looking out on the water.
It is expensive (2 drinks, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 coffees and tip= $190), but we were not disappointed. A delightful experience.

"This is such a trap - the setting is lovely but the main feeling from the moment you get there is that this is a business and that there is no time for pleasantries. Waiters are running around, waiting impatiently for your order, and the noise level (that day all the windows were open, we were practically outside) is unbearable, everybody is shouting to get heard... because everybody is shouting - do not expect any European refinement here, be it in the service or in the patrons..."

"The setting and location was beautiful. My husband and I were about 5 minutes early for a 2:30 pm reservation, so the hostess gave us a buzzer to notify us when our table was ready. The buzzer went off so we went back to the hostess stand to be told to wait for another 10 minutes to clean the table. Our waiter was very friendly but also waited on a large wedding guest table right behind ours after we sat down so we were neglected a few times. My husband ordered a drink from the 2nd waiter that delivered our appetizer, which was never delivered. Our main waiter finally came to check on us and we asked for my husband's drink, which he brought to us shortly. Our entree took awhile to be served, long after our appetizer and drinks were consumed. The dinner presentation was very nice, the skate fish had an unappetizing wavy flesh but was cooked well the scallops were cooked perfectly and it was all very bland, even salt could not help the flavoring. Can't say I would recommend this restaurant for the food."

"We ate here for lunch on a Monday and were not surprised to find it full by 12.15. The food was delicious....and the caramel popcorn ice cream was 'to die for'. Our waiter was great and enhanced our visit (as did the Veuve Clicquot!)"

"Visiting from the UK with a friend and wanted somewhere for dinner on 1st night, and was looking for somewhere in and around Central Park area. Lovely location. Had a cocktail in the bar first before heading down for dinner. Really lovely location, and nice ambience . As a vegetarian, there wasn't a huge amount of choice, however, the vegetarian option was really lovely and i really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend as a place to visit, and would expect it is lovely in the Summer."
