Having just enjoyed an hour on the lake in a rowing boat we decided to relax with a glass of wine in the beer garden. It is a lovely setting and we decided to stay for dinner as we were able to get a cancellation....More

In the picturesque boat house on the Central Park Rowing Pond, the Loeb Boathouse restaurant is the perfect place to dine on a sunny afternoon. Request a table near the water, if possible. The walls open wide on nice days to leave you dining alfresco....More

Wonderful place to go as couples. That has been in many movies. You get to row together on the lake in Central Park with another hundred or so people, very nice when not raining or too cold or hot. Bring some food and camera. And...More

We discovered the Loeb Lakeside Restaurant on our last day in New York. We wanted a lazy yet memorable brunch and the boathouse was perfect. The service was amazing from the moment we walked in. The staff were attentive and service was quick. It was...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
