The wait time to get in was worth it. Staff were friendly and the service was prompt. We had lunch and the serving sizes were very generous.

Nothing special about the food served in the back of the restaurant. We were looking to eat inside but were unwilling to wait an hour for a table. Price is average and food is too.

The Loeb Boathouse has several dining areas. The more formal one overlooks the lake. We ate at the very simple outside cafe - the one where you stand in line to order and then take your food back to a table. Simple, Nothing fancy. What...More

Although I know this place has a lot of good experiences, mine was very bad. I arrived there by 2:30 pm and the restaurant was half closed for a private event - no previous information at the website. I had no chance to ask for...More

We decided to go to the boathouse after freezing walking through Central Park. Food was really average, service was good, but the restaurant itself was absolutely freezing. The majority of people eating still had their coats & jackets on. Would go back, but probably in...More
