We had two meat ball starters and a shrimp starter with one cocktail and a pitcher of juice. The food tasted good full of flabour and drinks were really good. The readoni say a tasty treat it worked out to be 87 pound for just these snacks. But we discovered to get decent food in new York you have to pay over the odds. The views as other people have said are fantastic and you get friendly service. I would go back once I've saved up!

Great location right on the water. Lovely to sit outside on a gorgeous day. Found it by walking around and I’m so glad I did! Food is delicious. A few reviews led me to stay away from the calamari. So, I had the tuna tacos and they were fabulous. They come with a baby sauce dispenser. The avocado fries were unique and delicious. Small yet good selection of wine by the glass. I had a glass of Merlot and it was a good choice. Music was a little loud and I liked it! I would definitely come back.

Went TWICE during a 3 day trip to NYC from California. Service was friendly, personable and very efficient. Food was way better than we expected. Went originally for the great location and spectacular view- went back for the food!
Will definitely return on my next trip!

Good things about this restaurant: the view is spectacular; the wait staff is super efficient; the location; the prices. Understand that my friends and I are of a certain age, so we found this lovely setting to be way too noisy. The music is what you would call lively and loud. Ouch. The food was ok, but not remarkable. I had calamari (starter) and cole slaw (side.) Both were ok. My friend didn't like his choice nor did he like the price for a small glass of wine.I would try this place again except for the noise.

Great location right on the waterfront in the financial district. I had the shreddd Brussels sprout salad with chicken, my daughter had fish & chips. We sat indoors (too hot to be outside), right by the window so we could watch the boats. Great food, decent prices for the area, pleasant servers. Will be back!
