An irritable waiter recited a VERY long list of 'specials' with such a heavy accent, that by the time he finished we couldn't choose/remember what was said. Nothing against accents, but a list to read of so many items would have been so preferable. When we asked for a shorter repeat, he wasn't glad to do it...
We waited nearly a half hour for appetizers.
My choice of scallops on a bed of leeks was misleading; the scallops were fine, but they were on a very heavy cream sauce with a few strands of leeks.
My husband's veal scallopini, chosen because it should have been a classic (& they were out of the fish he wanted), was awful: oily & tough to chew. Truly awful.
This wasn't a cheap meal. If you want to eat on the waterfront, try Blu Pointe.

Nice location, if you like looking at a motorboat marina.
The one waiter for 40 tables is par if average to unimaginative food at high prices turns you on.
Polpo looked like it had been struck by lightning and dropped on a plate. Snapper drowned in marinara. Lava cake a fizzle. $185. Need I go on?
So popular. Who knew?

Cena 2000 is a nice place to stop if it's time for a meal on the way home from downstate. The view is very good... food tasty and reasonably priced..... service decent.

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.
