Tucked away at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, this establishment combines romance and fine dining under one roof. It is a perfect spot for a romantic evening for two; offering a nice and quiet ambiance along with a breathtaking view of Manhattan skyline.

The restaurant has three main dining areas. The main dining room offers the best view in house. Its unobstructed view through the glass window adds an extra dimension to the dining experience. The deck and the terrace room are located right next to each other away from the dining room. Private parties and special events are often hosted here.

The food doesn’t come cheap here but you can expect a top class dining experience at The River Cafe. To say the food is excellent is a gross understatement. Many world class chefs have worked in its kitchen at one time or another. The River Cafe is in a rare company of establishments which can offer menu that matches its view.

Its wine selection is excellent; winning the prestigious Diamond Wine List Award from the International Restaurant and Hospitality Bureau in 2001.

Jacket is required for gentlemen. Although there is no official dress code for the female counterpart, it’s best to dress up to avoid feeling out of place. Reservation is highly encouraged.

  1. find dining might be expensive but the menu and service is always the best “‘,

  2. Get Smart says:

    Tables with views — it is impossible to give everyone dining in the restaurant an absolute window front seat, however the clever tiered dining arrangement means that every table in the restaurant has an equally splendid view.
