I came here for a business dinner and I had a great time. The venue is in a gorgeous location that has an amazing view of NYC and the restaurant itself has great decor. The food was very, very good and our service was good as well. All my colleagues enjoyed their meal as well and I would definitely recommend... More

We attended a renewal of wedding vows event here. The fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline we expected; what we were not expecting was the superb quality of the service, food, and the wines. We ate in the main dining room the first night with a group of about nine; there was even a piano player performing old jazz and... More

The food is fantastic and the service is impeccable. The view just makes this place beyond perfect! Really amazing view of NYC. It's nice to walk around and see the memorial outside too. Just a fun fact... The hawk is pointed directly at ground zero.

From the moment you walk through the large doors, the atmosphere is beautiful. The flowers, to the pianist at the bar, to the stunning views of Manhattan in the main dining room- you can't beat it for NJ.

The Highlawn Pavilion sit on a hill in the Esgle Rock reservation. It or an elegant, fine dining restaurant. Jackets are required for men. It has a commanding view of the entire NYC skyline that twinkles in the night. The food is 5 stars. We had the striped bass that was light and perfectly prepared and a sirloin steak that... More

Arrived at 6:30 pm for a 7:00 pm dinner reservation wanting to enjoy a drink at the bar before dinner. You enter through the Eagle Rock Reservation and pass the 911 Memorial on the way in. A truly wonderful setting with a great view of NYC! The bar was crowded but the early arrival yielded a great view of the... More

Absolutely beautiful place overlooking NY city, wonderful menu (comes with a high price) & the service is impeccable! We had Tom as our waiter who helped with food & drink suggestions which were perfect & way too many great choices for dessert. What made this night extra special was Tom's personal attention( but not intrusive) to our celebration. This is... More

In my opinion, Highlawn Pavilion is an impressive business lunch destination. Valued clients will feel appreciated and respected which is a great starting point in building successful relationships. Set on the eastern edge of the 400 acre Eagle Rock Reservation, the Pavilion has exceptional views of the NYC skyline from the George Washington Bridge to the Verranzo Bridge. My first... More
