We went with friends in the evening. The garden area is beautifully decorated for Xmas.

The service the food the drinks and of course the view are superb. This is our second visit from UK celebrating a special occasion.

The River Cafe is awesome. You go for the amazing views of the City. It doesn't matter if you want to stop in for a drink or dine, you will be rewarded with the same great view. Treat yourself and go for dinner. It is a splurge but it is worth it.

We had a brunch with outstanding views. Food was also great. Wagyu Pastrami (!!!) and Smoked Salmon Benedict were first class. Pancakes with hazelnut Gianduja and fresh berries were really nice as a dessert. Service was partly too ingratiating in our taste. Really worth visiting.

This is a very special place where everything is just right with the possible exception of the price which seemed high even for that prefect evening. The tip was calculated for you! However, I have to admit thatI am not use to NYC prices, so maybe this is not that unusual. I am old school and appreciated the kind of service where your water glass is never empty and the wait staff are helpful but don't try to be your best friend. When you combine this with good friends, s beautiful view of NYC and great food, you get that perfect evening.
