Delicious food (calamari for ever!) and excellent service! If that's not enough, you can have a breathtaking view on the Hudson River for free. Went there many times with my colleagues and it was always perfect!

Excellent food, particularly the lobster roll, seared tuna wrap, and kids meals. Very family friendly but also a really nice location for couples, groups, etc. Service was also very good.

A great brunch location and really good food. The burger was really tasty and cooked to order. The eggs benedict was fab and the chicken salad was very good too. The iced coffee was not the best but all round it was a lovely meal....More

This is a good place for lunch or brunch if you want expansive views of the Hudson. The food is OK. Brunch on Saturday had various egg dishes, salads, and wraps. Service was spotty.
