This was our second visit. Love the location, service and the food. Some of the people seated outside will make us reconsider going back.

Staff was friendly and professional, cocktail menu was excellent. Limited food options due to end of the golf season however, food was great. Can't wait to come back when the weather is warm to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views. I would recommend to family and friends. They also have a beautiful ballroom to host events, such as weddings or holiday parties. Thank you again for a great afternoon at The Waterfront NYC!

Drinks were watered down. Bartender was rude. We asked to have drink made in front of us and they said we had to leave. Clearly you have bartender’s incapable of making legitimate drinks. Unheard of!!!!

The resturant is beautiful and very clean. The stuff is keeping the Covid
Guidelines.
The stuff did their best , however lacking professionalism .
We were very disappointed from their alcohol selection , missing black label Belvedere , not becoming to an upscale New York restaurant.

The views were absolutely wonderful however the service left much to be desired. After ordering a shellfish appetizer and the chicken wings we asked that the shellfish be put to end of the table because two people in the party had allergies. At that time we were informed that the chicken and shellfish had been cooked in the same grease (which is against code die to cross contamination). The chef stated that the oil could not be poured out to deep fry the chicken in fresh grease and while the manager provided the option to have the wings baked instead, he was quite flippant and aloof about the issue. Even after going through this with the appetizers, the waitress neglected to inform us that the french fries (the a diner with allergies ordered) was also done in the same grease until AFTER the diner had eaten a couple of them (thankfully she didn’t have a severe reaction…other than some mouth numbness). While myself and my company made sure not to allow these things to ruin our celebration it certainly tainted the day and I can say for sure that we will not be returning.

The canned music was a bit loud and all pop-country music. The service was mostly efficient, but we had to ask for more waters. The server never asked how the food was, until the very end of the meal. Food was excellent. One of the best restaurant rib-eyes I’ve ever had!

Finding the restaurant is confusing as the entrance looks like a clothing store to play golf. Inside the restaurant the ambience felt a bit stuffy. But once we were seated outside the view is gorgeous! Hidden gem. Good and service was good! I’d recommend this place. FYI it’s a Trump establishment so don’t let politics stop you from going.

The view was spectacular and we had a beautiful day to enjoy outside seating. That added to our lunch. The service was beyond slow. We order one beer, a pizza and a burger, no special requests. The water and napkins came right away. My husband order the beer and burger.The beer came first and then the burger. Good.
No pizza. So my husband ate alone, while I waited and waited and waited. I picked at the fries. I don't eat burgers. He was almost finished when the pizza came with a million apologies( the pizza was backed up, so she said). The place wasn't packed. So my husband asked her for another beer. ( remember it's a can) He waited and waited while I ate my pizza. Never came. We reminded the waitress. I was finished, and so was he when she walked over with the can. ( not even a new plastic cup). We declined the beer since we ate our food. She was surprised and said the bar was busy. @#$%^&*().
If Donald knew this he'd be infuriated. I gave the place three stars because the pizza and burger were good and the outside seating/ view added to the stars.

Beautiful clubhouse and seating area. Outdoor patio was covered and provides spectacular views of the Throgs Neck and Whitestone bridges. Service was very good and food was tasty. More suited to lunch than dinner. One suggestion, since the outdoor area is not screened in, once the sun sets the mosquitos come out in droves. Everyone was moving inside once it got dark out.

I really enjoyed myself. You could tell they were understaffed but the staff that was there was absolutely personable and pleasant. There were a good number of bees buzzing around us and our food,which made it uncomfortable at times but overall the environment was beautiful. The food was absolutely delicious.

The place is certainly plush enough and the views are splendid. The wife and I shared a truffle mushroom personal pizza that was heavenly. We also shared a top shelf rib eye and went home with leftovers of both. (Being Seniors, we just can't eat like we once could.) The cocktails were mediocre, but the pear tart desert was delicious. The food, views and desert get straight A's. The young staff are pleasant and accommodating, but inexperienced and certainly not commensurate with the check which was eye-popping since, for the most part, we shared a dinner. I should have demanded a detailed bill which was not provided. For those reasons, the staff gets a generous C rating. We will go back because the of the ambiance and location, but will know enough to prevent a reoccurrence of the sub-par stuff. Recommendations are with reservations

It's one of the best water tangent restaurant locations in New York City. Number one, there's parking! The food is mixed - some items are very good, others are good enough. But the reason to go, is the ambience, there is a wonderful outdoors eating area. I don't know what happens in the winter but it is really a lovely location if the weather is good. The service is fine.

My overall experience was a great one. I did, however, have to ask a different server for a refill of water and I would have preferred if my appetizer and main course did not come out at the same time. These are minor inconveniences for an otherwise positive experience. The server did take both our drink and food orders in a timely fashion and the food was delicious.

I came to the waterfront for an anniversary with my wife. The setting was amazing, with a friendly staff, and delicious food. I ordered the salmon which was cooked to perfection and my wife ordered the Steak which she ordered medium and came with just the right amount of pink and was seasoned well. 10/10 highly recommend the waterfront

View was awesome, food was delicious, old fashioned cocktail was superb, and the waiter was not only a combat F-18 naval pilot, but a high school science teacher, and a total professional waiter. How much better can you get? And all in a Trump owned club. Loved the experience.
