Food and service are just average. Priced reasonably. Nice view of the Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bridges. If you are a foodie type, skip it. Not the most sophisticated cooking but will give a group a decent meal and fun water view.

Come here for the views at night, the food is average. There was a private party going on in the other room and we felt very rushed even though the restaurant wasn't crowded. After we finished one plate, another one would come immediately after.
