Unfortunately this was true for Loeb’s. The view was wonderful after deep snow fell the day before but the food was disappointing. I chose the specials of cauliflower soup with truffle oil and the pasta with fresh tomatoes and a “touch” of garlic. Well there...More

Terrible experience at the Loeb Boat house on new years day, they screwed up the booking, when eventually seated the entire restaurant was very cold, even the waiting staff were wearing bodywarmers, so the food was cold when it arrived. Server spilling drinks over us...More

We stopped for lunch in the cafe & delighted that got the same view as those in the expensive restaurant. Our burgers were actually delicious & tasty fries (not your French fries variety). I can still say I had lunch at The Boathouse, Central Park...More

On weekends they open at 9:30. We arrived a few minutes early and were third in line for seating. The view was breathtaking when they seated us overlooking the pond complete with row boats, turtles, and a Manhattan skyline backdrop. The food was delicious and...More

Depends on the time of day and the day of the week. Week days in August there is little to no wait. At weekends, you could have to wait 15-30 mins, but you could get lucky and find no wait. I've gone on various days... More
