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.

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

Some comments for Europeans visiting this restaurant:
- tell the waiter before you order that you want to have some time between the courses
- be aware that if you take the taxi ordered by the restaurant you will pay double. City cabs are available near the place
- the service is good but not as good ad you might...

First the negative: For the average working person get ready to spend a week’s paycheck on your meal. Now the good stuff: First of all, undeniably, one of the BEST views in the WORLD!! The view is so amazing that if you were being served crackers and butter at this restaurant you would still rate it an 8 out of...

Sunday brunch, meanwhile, enamors with dishes like duck steak and egg, slow-roasted suckling pig, and...
