Went there Father’s Day without a reservation. They seated us on the outside couches which worked out just fine. In fact we had a beautiful view of the water. I had the tuna which was outstanding. A little pricey but you get what you pay...More

The View has the best Sunday Brunch. We spent a very nice Sunday afternoon here today. The brunch is a buffet with everything you could ask for. There was sushi, salads, bagels, an omelette station ,brisket, chicken cordon blu and assorted desserts. Everything was delicious

Sushi season at the View is open! Let the spring and summer season begin. We pulled in on our boat and a friendly waiter came out immediately to share a menu. Mark the View on your places to go by land or sea!

The food here is good...the view is spectacular. Unfortunately, the weather was lousy so our visit was spoiled by that. We asked for a window seat, and were told they could not guarantee that. As long as you know beforehand, that is ok. Our drinks...More

We took advantage of the LI Restaurant Week to go to The View. First of all, not all tables have The View and we were far from it. It was crowded and it seemed the large tables had the best views. I did request it...More

Go to Lessing's website, click on View, then click on the catering menu under Private Parties. TripAdvisor would not let me put the link here for you. It's a pdf file. /webphotos/8_2016822_12549_menu.pdf
