    Almoçar com a vista do lago do Central Park já vale a visita! A comida é boa, mas não tem nada de espetacular! O ambiente é que vale!

    On a sunny nice day, you would be waiting for a boat forever. If you want to just enjoy the view, grabbing a drink at bar is the way to go. Takeout food is reasonable

    A vista maravilhosa é só para grupos de 3 ou mais. Casal só pode ocupar as outras mesas. Ainda, vale pela comida deliciosa e ambiente muito agradável! Prepare o bolso e a paciência.

    During summer time, try not to sit underneath an A/C unit. Otherwise, you'll get soaking wet when it starts leaking non-stop.

    Though the food isn't necessarily exceptional considering the high price, it's fun to watch visiting boaters paddle by you while you munch on lunch dishes like herb-roasted filet mignon cob salad. Read more
