Went for restaurant week with another couple. Place was not packed. 12 wait staff in the room, not doing a great job. We sat for quite a while before the waiter came over. Butternut squash soup amazing and salads were great. 2 salmon dinners & 2 short ribs were excellent. Three tries to get a glass of ice and no one came to see if we wanted another drink or pepper for our dinner. Bread pudding was amazing. We complained about the lack of service and they did treat us to a glass of wine which was the right thing to do. We have been there several times before and knew that this was not a usual service for them. Go try it!

The perfect night out with my better half.
The friendly staff welcomes you and promptly shows you to your while linen table that awaits you in a romantic setting.
Great ambiance, panoramic views of the Hudson with GWB & Tappan Zee bridges in the distance at opposite sides.
The food is perfectly prepared by an expert chef, very generous portions, professionally presented!
The wait staff team was very attentive and friendly.
Can’t think of anything negative to say, thoroughly enjoyed the experience!!
Perfect for a special occasion or if you want to impress someone

This is a very impressive, upscale restaurant that my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed. It is located on the water and has glass windows so that you can enjoy the view while dining there. The staff is attentive and professional. The food is excellent. Everything we ordered we loved. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a date night, especially if you’re trying to impress someone on a first date!

Dined at the restaurant with my wife this past weekend. We have been here before and knew what to expect. In the past, we sat upstairs and had a lovely meal, with one exception. The room was freezing. This time we sat downstairs, the room looked nicer than upstairs and it was even colder. Granted it was snowing outside, they still had the air conditioner on high.

On to the food, my wife had a tortellini special which she enjoyed and I had tuna tartar, which was good. They rushed out the main courses (why I don't know). We both had the scallops, which were overcooked and rubbery. Nothing like rushing out a way to destroy scallops. Ewwwwwwww. For dessert, I had a chocolate cake and she had chocolate mousse...nothing spectacular there.

I actually purchased this meal on Groupon with a deal. The restaurant actually charges you for the full value of the Groupon, not the amount you pay, because I actually paid more for the deal to use it on a Friday or Saturday, but was informed that their system is not up to date, so we have to charge you the lower amount. In addition, they include a piece of paper outlining the fact that they charge you an extra gratuity of $13.00 per person (which was not listed on the deal) and then expect you to pay additional tip.

Suffice it to say, we were not wowed by the food and the experience made us decide that we will not be visiting this establishment again. The restaurant couldn't even offer me a free meal to visit again and based on the reviews recently, other diners agree. An extra fact, they have valet parking, but you have to pay $5, you can't self park and the restaurant validates it and then when you go out to valet to pick up your car, they ask you for a tip.

This experience was not a good one and the owner of this restaurant owns a much better restaurant in Rockland County (called Restaurant X).
