    À beira do The Lake você se remete ao romantismo daqueles filmes que nos fazem chorar! Drinks e comidinhas são atrações à parte!

    Um dos melhores restaurantes de NY. Almoçar em uma mesa rente ao lago comendo o steak. Tudo de bom

    Eggs benedict with salmon mind-blowing and the salmon was not cooked it just stayed perfectly smoked. Beautiful place too

    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!

    The view is amazing, but that's it! The service was really bad and the food average.

    I had this dessert last week, but I can't find it on the menu :( it's the best dessert ever!!!

    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

    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

    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

    Desserts- Rhubard and choc tart were the best. A great spot for atmosphere, food isn't amazing.

    Sit at the open-air bar in the summer, have a cocktail, and enjoy the view.

    O jeito mais chique e gostoso de gastar uns trocos bebendo um drink vendo o lago !

    Dani Albuquerque · June 18, 2014
  • Michael P.

    The cocktails are a joke. Avoid. Just order a beer.

    Delicia de lugar, se nao tiver reserva chegue no máximo ao 12:30 para almoçar e ficar em uma boa mesa. O Twin burger é divino, os outros pratos servem duas pessoas.

  • Andrew S.

    Food and service was pretty meh, but the view and environment was spot on. Perfect brunch spot as long as you're not expecting the best food at that price.

    Fish and chips yummy! View is sunny!!

    Alice Rose · January 17, 2014
  • Dom H.

    If you don't want a full service meal, go round the side to the bar and grill for more casual dining with the same views.

    Nice View, food ok, nothing exceptional, and expensive. We had a very bad experience with the waiter. Not coming back. The hostess was very nice with us.

    It's a beautiful restaurant, with a beautiful view, but if you're coming here for good service.....don't. Very rude staff, have never felt so pushed to eat my food and get out, like an assembly line.

    Liz Nachtegall · September 20, 2013
  • Ms A.

    If u consider going here, remember, that staff is rude and the menu is very limited, but u MUST order a main course!!!!!!!! Wtf??????????

    Please give a tip to the hard working men who pull and push the boats in and out of the water
