    The Crab cakes are a really good choice for appetizer. The ambience is unmatched in my life thus far. Sure the weather has much to do with it but it's definitely one of your best choices.

    The famous boathouse in Central Park is known for its fancy lunches for the ladies who lunch. But you can also get takeout and enjoy the same view for under 10 bucks. Read more

    The service is a little slow, I guess it's because the 15% tip is already included to your bill, but the view and the food was good. I had a delicious octopus salad and scallops.

    The restaurant here is one of the better places I've ever eaten. I've eaten steak tartar before in France and in Belgium but this is the best I've ever had. A truly beautiful setting doesn't hurt.

    So touristy uugh... But the canoe rental is real fun and can be relaxing, even if it is a workout to row!!! One hour for only $15, up to 4 ppl in the boat is great

    Quick service for a romantic row boat around Central Park. It'll be tough to avoid the mobs of people coming in and going out but once you get past that, it's an amazing NYC experience

    Go for the fresh brewed hibiscus tea and crab cakes At least 2-hour waiting during weekends, either go to the outside bar (only tapas/drinks but still nice) or during weekdays to avoid the crowds.

    During the summer and spring it is a lot of fun to rent a boat and go rowing. It is great for a date and it is really relaxing. Also, if you take a picnic it is not very expensive.
