“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...

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

I came here to celebrate my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend and it was nothing but amazing! The food was perfect along with the service the staff treated us with so much respect and would come by every couple of minutes. I highly recommend the ravioli and the shrimp for appetizer, lamb and steak for main course and definetly the soufflé for dessert. The Brooklyn bridge dessert is chocolate...
