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!

"We meet occasionally for lunch. Because I booked, even though we were only 2 people, we
were seated at a window table. The snow and ice on the rowing lake was still pristine. It was gorgeous!

"I was so excited to go to The Boathouse as I've seen it in a lot of movies. It didn't disappoint-great location, great service and great food! At $20 for an starter and $32 for a main, it's a little more than I'd usually spend, but for a special occasion it was just perfect!"

"Although the food is always delicious it's the view that draws the crowd. Try the mini burgers for lunch and sit back and watch the rowers on the lake"

"This is a lovely restaurant with great staff and excellent food.
The views of the lake are amazing, we were not sat beside the window but could still admire the view. The sun was shinning in and made for a memorable meal.
Great place to have excellent food, great wine and service
I will be booking here for my next trip to new york

"The crab cakes are to die for.
My fish (skate) was superb.
Mr wife's pork was dry, and not recommended.
Excellent service and location.

"My wife & I were on holidays from Australia and were looking for somewhere special for lunch.
The BoatHouse delivered on every expectation. The food, wine, service and setting were perfect in every way, and made our Christmas in NYC very special.
