Booked for this boat cruise for a special occasion with friends. On arrival, we were welcomed and shown to our seats, excited for an evening meal, music, and cruise along the Hudson River.

Unfortunately, after our starters, the information was shared that the cruise couldn’t go ahead as planned due to a technical issue that the captain had been trying to remedy. So, we had a limited cruise along the river but did get to see the amazing skyline at night and the Statue of Liberty. Despite the ‘non cruise’ the food was lovely and the service excellent, all staff exceptionally friendly and helpful.

The company immediately offered us another evening cruise but due to our other travel commitments we were unable to do this so were given a full refund. Whilst expensive I cannot recommend this trip highly enough; the food and service were equivalent to a top restaurant, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. And the honesty and integrity when the cruise was unable to go ahead was commendable.

We had a wonderful experience last night, as we celebrated a milestone birthday for my wife, with eight of us in attendance. I appreciated their attention to COVID protocols, and was grateful that they checked our vaccination status and photo ID's before they boarded us. The staff treated us so well, and seated us a a window with beautiful views of Manhattan. We especially appreciated that they lingered around the Statue of Liberty, so we could take lots of photos. All three courses of the plated dinner was excellent, as was the attentive service. We had great mixed drinks as well. The entertainment was terrific, as the vocalist had a beautiful voice and sang popular songs we all know and loved. From start to finish we had a great time, and most of all, my wife was very happy.

We might have had the prettiest night of the year last night. The Bateaux premier dinner cruise was very special right from the start. Everyone we had contact with was extremely professional - from check-in (have your vaccine card and ID), to our waiter, to the music and the crew. The food was terrific, the choices were varied, the drink menu was vast, and the views were incredible! The three hour cruise gave us beautiful views of the skyline up and down the East River and the Hudson.
And then we went around the Statue of Liberty and were offered quite a long time to take up close photos. Spectacular! And when I say the live music was terrific - it was terrific! The Sterling Band with Joey Douglas were so so good. She can sing anything! Don't hesitate and cruise with Bateaux!

More personalized. Better service. Better menu.Waitress took an hour to take our order. After another hour of waiting she came to advise they didn’t have the wine we selected then came back an hour later to advise they didn’t have the steaks we ordered. Soup was cold and the horrible service truly ruined the evening. I saved to fly my husband here for Father’s Day for this cruise specifically and couldn’t have been more disappointed it literally ruined our entire trip we asked to dock and where close and see a manager and our ignored our request. I will be sure to tell anyone who will listen not the to buy over priced and horrible service

We showed up for our cruise 45 minutes prior to boarding on 2/10/22 at 7 pm and nobody was there. The cruise boat was vacant, the lights were off, no one was in the booth to ask about the cruise. We did not receive an email that the cruise was cancelled. We called the numbers that were listed on our booking and one representative said that an email was sent On 2/7/2022 with a cancellation for the lunch cruise on 2/12/22 but we never received a notice that our dinner cruise on 2/10/22 was cancelled. Now we are trying to get a refund and getting a run around about how to request a refund.

I took my girlfriend on the Valentines day cruise this weekend on the Bateaux and I have to say this was nothing short of an absolutely wonderful evening.

Before we even entered the vessel the service was amazing already. When we got to our table it was perfectly set and the best server we have experienced regardless of where my girlfriend and I have dined recently and we eat out a lot was Naeem. Naeem was beyond professional and simply amazing at his job.

We never had to worry about a thing. Naeem ensured we where all set throughout the three hour beautiful cruise on the Hudson river.

The atmosphere was incredible the music and singer that played on Saturday Feb 12th and the band was absolutely incredible the variety you get of music from the live band throughout was fantastic.

All of the views and the route the cruise took was a sight to see and we live in the NYC area and it still does not get old.

The manager Adrian Silvestre did an excellent job at asking everyone as they walked on the boat how they are doing and if it was a special occasion besides valentines day.

The Food was first class. I had the seafood chowder and lobster and filet and chocolate cake. I will tell you just because this is a dinner cruise the quality was just as good if not better than a steak house in the city.

I could go on about how much we loved this night. Thank you Naeem & Adrian for really going above and beyond to make our Valentines day special.

My hopes are that Naeem & Adrian both get recognized for the exceptional service they both provided us and everyone on the ship. They have a tough job but I could tell they love what they do everyday. And the same band and singer should play every night!

We will be back!

First class experience all the way around.

Thank you,

Peter Wenzell

This was a wonderful addition to our trip to NYC during the week of New Year's 2022. The boat was lovely, our waitress was delightful, and we highly recommend the seafood tower for two appetizer. We ordered short ribs and cod for dinner, both delicious. The wine selection was good, and the specialty cocktail my partner ordered was nice... we were allowed to keep two cocktail glasses as souvenirs. I highly recommend this experience for anyone who loves NYC, the Statue of Liberty, lovely views of the skyline, and is looking for a nice meal and a little break from the hustle and crowds while in the city. Definitely worth the price!

This was by far one of my favourite things to do in New York. The food is incredible and views you can get are fantastic!
This is a 3-hour dinner cruise along the river taking in the sites of New York including the Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty.
I would suggest the Premium package which includes drinks and they are expensive on board and if you have the package, you can have anything from the drink’s menu by the glass as often as you like. The drinks are very good and if you have the premium package you can try them all!
The food was outstanding and great for parties or special occasions! There are vegetarian options available.
You can easily get up from your table at anytime to take photos out on the deck of NYC all lit up.
The live music is very good singing old and new songs and finishing of course with New York, New York!
The staff are great on board and very tentative to making sure you have a great experience. 10/10!

Exceeded expectations. Our server, Asia, was amazing, and meal was super! Mostly couples, but my sister and I went together. Live music very entertaining - the only downside - could have been 2 hrs instead of the but still gets 5 stars!

The views of skyline and Statue of Liberty were great. Staff were friendly and band were good, however felt really let down by the food. One of our party is vegan and we specifically checked before booking that that there were vegan options on the menu. Was told this was the case so we booked. There however was no vegan starter or desert. Was offered vegan alternatives of the dishes but this was with the main ingredients removed so were not good. Meat dishes were average and half the menu you had to pay a supplement for. Is certainly not worth the money and would recommend a cheaper tour to see the views and book a nice restaurant for food.
