My wrap was nothing special but it was fun to sit and watch the boaters try to navigate a very small pond. The food was not expensive and it was a good place to take a break, enjoy the park and people watch.

Very friendly place with great atmosphere, lots of families and dogs. The view is fantastic and the setting invites to a riverside walk. I found the staff very friendly and the service was fast. The fried calamari was really fresh, the salmon burger was tasty...More

The total waiting time was an hour an a half for a cold burguer worse quality than mc Donald's. The bread was old and cold, they ran out of beers at 6.30pm and the attention was terrible. Everything is served in plastic plates and glasses...More

Great views across the Hudson. Poor service with order wrong or items not received that were ordered. Food is ok but very basic compared to the festive delights that NYC has to offer. The toilets are terrible.
