This waterfront dining area of Newburgh is very busy on a Saturday night, but the restaurant did a wonderful job of handling our party of 13 people. Not easy to do! Benny our waiter was kept very busy with all of our requests but he handled everything efficiently and with good humor. The food was outstanding - especially the red sauce dishes. Swordfish and salmon also very good. Loved the prosciutto and barrata and the eggplant appetizers. Drinks were generous, and the view of the moon rising over the Hudson was spectacular.

Went here today for Mothers Day dinner. I expect to pay a little more for special occasions but this place gouged to the extreme!!

You would think on Mothers Day since you have a special menu that there would be at least a few kids options. Nope Zero!! So we ordered the 30.00 ravioli for our daughter and the plate literally had 7 small ravioli on it not to mention under cooked. I ordered the risotto which was bland as can be. Zero seasoning and almost sour.

The best part was sitting in the tent outside eating our dinner during a rainstorm where there was a space between the building and the tent. We got wet and the water continually dripped from the tent as the waiters and waitresses walked other people's food through the dripping water. Seriously had no plan for rain. Not one person came to apologize nor did they care.

I have friends who think Cena is great but they lost me as a customer after today. Poor management with overpriced below average tasting food.

We dined at Cena 2000 on our way back from New York City. The meal was very good. We had some cocktails while looking over the menu.... well made and reasonably priced. A shared appetizer was more than adequate and very good. Pasta dishes were tasty. Server was professional and helpful.

We went to Cena 2000 for my birthday. The waiter was rude and expressed little interest in telling us about the menu. We had to ask about the special menu and he said that it was really long. We said we'd like to know. He asked us what we were thinking about ordering - appetizers? Seafood? etc. We asked for appetizers and seafood and he sped though the specials so fast, we had a hard time keeping up. The waiter was also not helpful about wine. We asked for suggestions and he said, "Whatever you want...." When the food arrived, it was mediocre - certainly not what we expected for even half the price. We will not go back.

The view of the Hudson is stunning. The wine list is nice. Draft beer affecionados - sorry about your luck. Try Captain Jakes a few doors down.

Menu - interesting.

Specials menu - we don't know. Our waiter said it was long and didn't seem to think it was worth laying out. The people at the next table seem to have had deviled crab. Wish I had known. It's my favorite.

The veal scallopene was tasteless. We are taking it home, hoping we can doctor it up and give it some flavor.

The grilled calamari was perfectly cooked. The salad I had with it had to go back because it was covered on cheese which I am allergic to (not noted on the menu or mentioned by waiter when asked about it).

The service. Bus boys were great. Waiter obviously had better things to do.
