A great way to look at Central Park but rowing on the lake instead of strolling in the park! We went there Thursday afternoon (Easter Week). There was a line getting in but it moved fairly quickly. The rental price was ok for a family...More

I had the twin hamburgers and my wife had the Halibut special. The Halibut was well prepared but weak on flavor. The hamburgers, while receiving rave reviews from the waiter, was generic at best. The service was almost good, just a half step off what...More

We started off with a lovely stroll through central park to work up an appetite for lunch. We opted to only have a main course as it is expensive. The food was delicious and our server was great. would definitely re-visit and recommend.

A great family lunch in a wonderful venue. Fixed priced menu offered a good selection which left no one disappointed. The only downside was the service. Our waiter was fantastic when we could get his attention. On this day the Loeb needed some additional staff.

We stumbled upon this restaurant during our trip into Central Park on my 21st birthday. As we were planning to have a big dinner we wanted a light lunch to keep us going. With a perfect setting right by the lake, this place looks adorable....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
