I booked this in advance for our visit to NYC, requested a table on the lake and that request was fulfilled which was great since it was packed. The service was very good, would have preferred a more substantial menu but we enjoyed our meal,...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

Came here as part of my birthday celebrations. Such a beautiful location, hard to believe you are in the big city sitting looking out on the water in such a tranquil environment. Food was delicious. Attentive and friendly staff too. Expensive but that's normal in...More

We always start our NYC visit with a special meal here. Sitting lakeside, people watching the boaters, and enjoying the lushness of Central Park was enhanced this visit by our server, Eddie and maitre d' Al. Both were attentive without hovering, and conversant. The experience...More

This iconic place is a must visit, when in New York City. How many famous movies can you name, that were filmed there? The view is perfect for washing away all the hustle and bustle of the city. The gondola ride is special, as they...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
