River Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Great location (we arrived by subway, driving looked difficult in that area). Outstanding view of Manhattan. Expensive but worth it. Excellent service despite that the waiter forgot my coffee, but he compensated both of us with complimentary after dinner drinks. Very nice.
Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful location overlooking New York. Tucked away under the Brooklyn Bridge. Very classy, romantic venue.
The food is exquisite. Every course was perfect. A good choice on the menu.
The staff were very attentive, helpful and polite.
I would not hesitate going here again 😃
Amazing views!!! Impresionantes vistas de Manhattan y preciosa decoración/atmósfera del lugar. Lo saben y lo pagas. La calidad de la comida no está a la altura del precio ni del sitio. Mejorable tanto la materia prima como el punto de cocina. Dos menús con agua del grifo y una única copa de champán 350USD! Para una ocasión especial y para quienes valoren la ubicación privilegiada en la que te encuentras. Es un must. Ahora bien, si además quieres comer calidad(como correspondería si lo hicieran bien) no es el sitio. En resumen calidad/precio te clavan, pero lo especial de las vistas, el encanto del lugar y el buen servicio lo merecen/compensan. (estás en NYC!!! y por una vez...;-)
Famous for its view River Cafe also offers outstanding dining experience. Given the quite limited seating space the atmosphere seems a bit hectic. Tasting menu has been a great experience, service matches nicely and although pretty crowded still personal. The only fly in the ointment will be the big check at the end ....
