What the community has to say about River Cafe

Information about this business (10)

“The River Café opened in June of 1977 in a forgotten and abandoned neighborhood by the Brooklyn docks – desolate except for trucks waiting to enter the piers. When Michael Buzzy O’Keeffe first “found” this spot, it was barren and devoid of life. To him, this small strategic piece of chaotic waterfront was special – lacking any civility, but with wonderful possibilities. This was the oasis that...

The River Cafe is one of New York and America's most unique locations. Nestled under the Brooklyn Bridge with sweeping views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty, this elegant restaurant has, since 1977, been a favorite destination for New Yorkers and visitors from around the world who demand the highest level of cuisine. Renowned for its exquisite setting, beautiful decor and...

Due to damage from the storm on Monday, October 29th, The River Café will be closed until further notice. We are currently not accepting any reservations. The extensive rebuilding and restoration will continue to keep us closed for at least another month. We will not be open for the Christmas or New Year's Eve holidays.

Gayot

An anomaly: food that's good enough to rival the view.

No place in the city combines spectacle with hideaway intimacy and undiluted romance the way the River Café does. And if more customers will take photographs of the Brooklyn Bridge’s steel underbelly than of their plates, the food is still much better than you might fear if you’ve been to other restaurants with souvenir views. — Pete Wells

Service was great but food was ok. Not worth paying more than $150... I paid about $160 with one drink.If you could sit by the window, it's 4 stars... yes, its worth paying more than $150. If...

Business description (12) view all

Business Dinner: From the River Cafe, diners are able to take in the majesty and spectacle of the looming skyline across the water. Inside, they find that service and food complement the wonderful view. Try sea bass with mashed potatoes for a real winner, and top it off with a luscious dessert. Sunday brunch, meanwhile, enamors with dishes like duck steak and egg, slow-roasted suckling pig, and...
