Went there with a group of friends. Were waiting for a table for an hour only to see other people be seated before us. We were finally seated outside but it started raining. We were moved to the tent area only after saying that we were going to leave. We had to move AND DRY OFF our own chairs and tables. The bill was dropped off on the table BEFORE we finished eating. We didn't put the tip on credit card because we always tip in cash, that's when the waiter (who was not ours) came over saying, "Really, this is unbelievable. This is how people make a living." This obnoxious statement was followed by, "Don't you ever come back here." Don't worry, NEVER AGAIN.

I enjoyed this casual outdoor restaurant, arranged in three sections next to Hudson River. First I came for the sunset view over NJ than after for food. The open air patio that overlooks the Marina and the Hudson River with breathtaking views. That's gorgeus. If hungry why not the tasty Vegetarian Garden Burger with Cheddar Cheese; Sesame Bun, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Pickle & Ranch Dressing. ***

Love the place, the view, the atmosphere. But beers are not really cold, and the (really) average food is served in plastics plates - the same goes for knife any forks. Too bad.

I had a fun time here while visiting a friend. It's the type of place and location that I probably couldn't have found without a local. It was crazy busy but the service was good and fairly prompt, even at the bar. Its a nice place to spend time outside when the weather is nice and just have a few drinks. It's mainly a young professional's crowd so if you're not into that, steer clear. I'd definitely check it out again the next time I'm in New York.

Great ambiance for an evening outing. There is a wait to get a table outside but there is ample place to get a spot for the evening. They have a decent selection of beers and a modest food menu with your typical bar food fare. Ideal for hot summer days.

The food is not spectacular, but it's still okay. Usually, the chicken strips are solid; salty, crispy, and juicy. The views are glorious though so every time I go, I end up staying a while and not realizing where the time has gone. It really is wonderful place to visit when the weather is nice. One of the few places in fast-paced New York City where I feel like slowing down is a good move.
