With their 1858 landscaping plan under construction, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux began adding architectural features to their Park design. Around 1874, Vaux designed a two-story boathouse at the eastern end of the Lake. Here visitors could purchase refreshments, take boat rides, and watch other boats. After this wooden Victorian structure with sloping mansard roof burned down, the current Loeb Boathouse took its place in the 1950s. Today at the New York Boathouse visitors can enjoy a meal in any season, with overhead heating helping to extend as long as possible the pleasure of dining on the deck overlooking the Lake. Come visit a New York legend!

"Our golden rule is don't expect the the food and service to be good where the view is the main event !
Well the Boathouse is an exception to that rule
We would highly recommend the boathouse for any occasion

Toku’s cuisine is predominantly Japanese with influences from China, Korea, and South East Asia. Ingredients and cooking techniques throughout the world create the Modern Asian menu. Owners Gillis and George Poll have dined all over the world, and have come across a variety of dishes that have really impressed them, “the best of the best.” According to Gillis, “We put together our favorites and added our own unique twists to them.” George emphasizes the menu’s ease and variety. “It’s a straightforward, casually written menu which allows you to dine any way that you’d like.” Guests may enjoy traditional meals with an appetizer, entree and dessert, or dine exclusively on sushi. Others can order cocktails and a table full of appetizers and skewers to share. “The menu is set up for sharing,” he confirms. Anything goes when ordering at Toku.

"Their claim to fame is being the most expensive restaurant with the smallest portions.
Still can't figure what their true intentions are
But
Good thing they are closing for the season
And ...

Italian Coastal Cuisine, with a menu bringing together the finest local and international ingredients. We focus on grilled and roasted fish, meat, poultry and vegetables. Game in season. Handcrafted pasta and pastry. Full bar. Excellent wine list.

Everyone, from beautiful models and young professionals to families and business types on power lunches, flocks to Serafina Fabulous Grill to enjoy the ambiance and delicious cuisine found in this upbeat three room restaurant. Choose from a variety of homemade pastas and fresh grilled meats, fish and vegetables. Always buzzing with good music, animated conversation and hearty laughter, diners can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine on the terrace, in the main dining room with the open fire grill and cherrywood burning oven or at the lively bar.

"We have been a fan of Sarafina for years - but no more !
Not what it use to be !
Chicken parm was over cooked and tasted like it was stacked up in the kitchen hours before and then reheated with a little sauce and cheeze.
Should have sent it back but no one would understand
