We have enjoyed the Loeb Boathouse restaurant on several occasions while in NYC, but on this trip we had the privilege to attend a wedding reception there. Believe me, the Boathouse was a fantastic choice of venue. A cocktail hour was set up outside, complete...More

In the picturesque boat house on the Central Park Rowing Pond, the Loeb Boathouse restaurant is the perfect place to dine on a sunny afternoon. Request a table near the water, if possible. The walls open wide on nice days to leave you dining alfresco....More

Had lunch at the boathouse in the outdoor 'cafe style' seating area. The menu was varied and surprisingly very good value for money! Portion sizes of fries and drinks were above average and the quality of the sandwiches, burgers etc was fab! After lunch we...More

Came across the Boathouse while strolling through the park. The youngsters decided to take a boat for an hour as there was no queue (mid afternoon on a Tuesday) and for $15 plus a $20 deposit was good value. They had a great time rowing...More

We discovered the Loeb Lakeside Restaurant on our last day in New York. We wanted a lazy yet memorable brunch and the boathouse was perfect. The service was amazing from the moment we walked in. The staff were attentive and service was quick. It was...More

The staff at the boathouse was nice and helpful! The line was not too crazy even for a Saturday! It just cost $15 for an hour and the deposit is $20

We wanted a drink and a quick bite after a strolling round Central Park. I wish we'd gone somewhere else! After finding a seat inside I went to order but, bizarrely, no one served me so after a few moments I realised they were serving...More

Great location, we had a good lunch here and watched the world go by for awhile, a good stop to help break a Central Park day up, with good wine to accompany the menu. Waitress was attentive, and proactive, very friendly. Food was very high...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
