    El servicio fue bueno, la comida, aunqu no excelente, está muy por encima de la media y la localización es inmejorable. ¿Vale esa mezcla lo que cuesta? Es difícil de justificar pero si lo tienes...

    A vista é maravilhosa e o atendimento muito bom. E só ! A comida não a vale a pena, seja o steak New York ou o linguini. Totalmente sem graça e gosto.

    Very pretty. VERY overpriced. A typical tourist trap. The food isn't very good either.

    Food is average and overpriced. Service is mediocre at best. Typical tourist trap. Expect a lot of white tablecloths and a lot of white people.

    $15 for an hour on a boat in the middle of Manhattan is the dopeness.

    No food at all at the bar which sucks! You can't have just appetizers at the dinner table which is annoying.

    Wine and the bar. Gabor the bartender is cute!

    Service was of a "C" class restaurant and very disappointed with the service etiquette. Serving spoons and Oysters picks had to be requested after food was served. Really a disappointing experience.

    Great view, friendly waiters but really slow service! And the food is good.

    Fries & lemonade were great! Lots of little birds were perched on my table...while I was eating. They would not let up. Ballsy.

    Rent rowboats for $15/hour (4 people per rowboat).

    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!!!

  • Harumi U.

    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

    Very tasty crab cakes. Good service. Great view on the lake from the dining room.

    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.

    Amazing views. Come here to see and be seen... Cool place.

    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 !
