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

Upscale place and fantastic view

Average Rating

We've been coming to the river cafe several times over the last couple of years. The place has outstanding food and great wine selection. The outside is beautiful and the inside decor is nice but fairly simplistic. The view is truly amazing phenomenal with place being right on the water. Wait staff is always pleasant, and not overly intrusive. Menu...

Overpriced, good view of te city

The place is beautiful because if you go by night you will have a great view of manhattan. The bad news are that they only have a fixed menu, for about 115 usd per person just for the food, and you will have to add drinks at least another 20 usd per person. The service is not great, so when...

The menu at the River Cafe covers an array of continental specialties, including rack of lamb, tuna tartar, and caviar. An exceptional wine and cocktail list is also available.

Know Before You Go: The famed Brooklyn Bridge chocolate marquise dessert looks better than it tastes, but don't let that stop you.
