A different perspective of Central Park

A great way to look at Central Park but rowing on the lake instead of strolling in the park! We went there Thursday afternoon (Easter Week). There was a line getting in but it... read more

This place was recommended to me by friends whose taste in food is usually good. The first thing that comes to mind when you go in is OTT. Tables are set with linen cloths, flowers and cutlery and the waiting staff wear striped ties making it look a bit like an exclusive club. I would class the welcome as professional... More

Timeless place in Central Park. Of all the great food to choose in New York. This is one worth the wait. The french toast was excellent!

I had the twin hamburgers and my wife had the Halibut special. The Halibut was well prepared but weak on flavor. The hamburgers, while receiving rave reviews from the waiter, was generic at best. The service was almost good, just a half step off what it should of been. The table tops are particle board, covered by double table clothes,... More

The Loeb Boathouse is a really touristy place, but nonetheless was actually a pleasant experience. The view of the park and the pond is beautiful, the service was polite (albeit a bit slow), and the food was decent to good. I recommend the crabcake appetizer and the fish and chips for a main.

We started off with a lovely stroll through central park to work up an appetite for lunch. We opted to only have a main course as it is expensive. The food was delicious and our server was great. would definitely re-visit and recommend.

A great family lunch in a wonderful venue. Fixed priced menu offered a good selection which left no one disappointed. The only downside was the service. Our waiter was fantastic when we could get his attention. On this day the Loeb needed some additional staff.

Booked the Boathouse for New Years Eve a few months ago and it definitely did not disappoint! The venue was beautiful with a perfect view of the Central Park fireworks. Drinks weren't much more expensive than we paid anywhere else in New York and the food was delicious! Wasn't cheap but as to be expected on New Years in a... More

We went here for brunch the day after New Years and our expectations were very high since it is a very popular restaurant. And the food was very good and fresh. However our server smelt strongly of alcohol and did not remember any of the orders without us having to repeat it serval times! And honestly most waiters spoke poor... More
