"My husband ordered the baked blue fish which unexpectedly came piled high with tomato bruschetta. I had fish and chips. Nothing remarkable about anything we ordered and both meals came with a sad little dish of gray cole slaw. They do have splits of Prosecco which is good when only one person is drinking. It's nice to watch the boats go by though so you can overlook a lot."

Croton Reservoir Tavern has become a popular midtown lunch, dinner and after work gathering spot. Featuring a wondrous hand painted 150 sq foot mural of the reservoir in all its glory, dining at the Croton Reservoir Tavern allows you to enjoy a palpable turn of the century New York experience. The tavern’s 50 foot oak bar, brass studded leather chairs, wrought iron railings and leather banquet seating lay the backdrop for warmth and good cheer. Modern American cuisine and NYC’s most popular drinks are prepared to the highest of standards and served with relaxed charm and cheerful attentive service. Croton’s comfortable and casual atmosphere along with it's vibrant social scene, quality dining and special event hosting has made it one of New York’s most popular destinations.

"We had a 5 pm reservation and we were the only people dining for at least 40 minutes. Our waitress was incredibly annoying. I guess she was bored. She wanted us to order while the bartender made our drinks. I said we'd wait until we got them. She stood there so I asked her to give us a minute. This went on through the whole meal. No bread was served. She tried to take my wine glass before it was empty. Asked us if we wanted dessert while taking our dinner plates. I had a watermelon and tomato salad and salmon, my friend had lobster bisque and risotto. We shared a plate of cookies. The food is so-so. There are much better places in the area. Our Manhattans were $16 each! Sorry I picked this restaurant."

Conveniently located in the Shops at Riverside, The Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a… sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or Bluefin Tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.

"We used to eat here when it was McCormick & Schmick's and didn't try Oceanaire until Saturday. The food is great and the decor beautiful. My husband and I both had specials, Artic Char and Diver Scallops, and this restaurant is now on our "go to" list. A bonus would be to get Rita as your server. She's very sweet and attentive."

Due restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Ridgewood on the corner of East Ridgewood Ave and Broad Street, steps away from New Jersey Transit's Ridgewood Rail Station. Executive Award Winning Chef Adam Weiss and Owner Chris Tarta deliver modern, seasonal, eclectic Italian cuisine with freshly prepared dishes from the wood-fired grill using local ingredients with a focus on flavors, textures, and plating with a modern twist. We offer the perfect casually elegant ambiance, setting, and accommodations for private dining as well as outdoor "al fresco" dining. We live to serve our neighbors.

"Just because you throw some blueberries on a small plate of salad doesn't make it worth $13. My husband had a strange brown gazpacho with one shrimp in it followed by a $30 piece of snapper which was a special. I had salmon for $27. We don't mind spending $100 at a BYOB but when you sit on uncomfortable plastic chairs for the experience and the food isn't all that great we have no reason to go back. I didn't get the sophisticated bistro vibe some of your other reviewers found. I overheard a server telling another table who wasn't happy with the degree of doneness of their fish that the chef was "eccentric"!"
