It's hot in NYC and the stroll around Central Park was good but left us very warm. We saw the boathouse and decided to have a drink in their outside bar with a good table available. The beers were $10 each but worth it for...More

Not sure if we paid the price because we weren't dressed up. We were tourists and walked from Times Square so we had relatively nice polo shirts and khaki shorts. We were party of six and although four of us were going to sit down...More

We were able to rent a boat and take a brake from walking. The water was under an algae boom warning and this made the water all green. There were turtles in the pond and you can also go under a walkway and see the...More

Had a lovely hour on the pond/lake for $15. We all took a turn to row, and it was great to see the turtles basking in the sunshine and swimming about the boats

Finally got to dine there. Officially full but getting a table once we were there wasn't too much fuss. Hard to fault. Superb wine and food. Efficient and friendly staff.

You're not going here for the service. Despite the fact our server was quite nice, nothing was quick. If you book for a 2 they won't give you a lakeside table but apart from that the appetizer menu was really tasty, in particular the octopus.

Couldn't resist an hour in a rowboat for $15!!! Great views of skyline and fun to explore hidden coves of the lake. Nice to just float and take it all in!!!

My 8-year old loved rowing us around the lake! The lake is a bit crowded close to the launch pad, but once you get away, there's plenty of space for kids to take a turn rowing. It was a nice diversion from walking and site-seeing!

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
