Food was absolutely horrible! Fish tacos were fishy, burgers over cooked and vegetables very salty. Instead of a great view, we look at a construction fence. And our server was so rude. Our family left eating only French fries, the only food item salvageable. I felt bad because I picked it to celebrate my husbands 60th with our kids who live in nyc. We were all disappointed! Don’t waste ur money! Yuck!!!!!

I expected this to be a nicer place. When we arrived at 5:30 pm there was a long line of 15 people standing at the entrance. Turns out this was the bathroom line. I thought that was unusual since the place wasn't that full, but when we left there continued to be a long line waiting for the bathroom. We tried a margarita upstairs at the rooftop and it was so terrible we couldn't drink it. There were piles of empty cups and drinks on the tables, perhaps they don't have wait staff upstairs but it looked very sloppy. I'm always turned off if there aren't enough bathrooms for customers but the bad drink upstairs made it worse. This place is overrated. Would not recommend.

夜景が綺麗だと聞き、訪店しました。テラス席に通されたのでそれは良かった。ただ、二階にもテラスがあったようなのでできればそちらがよかったかな。料理はシーフートプレートが素晴らしかった。どれも新鮮でシュリンプカクテルにつけるトマトソースは絶品。店員も概ねフレンドリーでよかった。駅から少し歩く必要があるが、素晴らしいお店でした。

My wife, my daughter, and I stopped in to have brunch to celebrate our 35th anniversary before we went to see a show. We always enjoy the food at the vineyard or the winery. The views of the Hudson always adds to the experience.

Hello Elizabeth - Please know how seriously we take your feedback and observations. The cleanliness of our facility and the health of our guests is absolutely our top priority. For 3 years we've proudly posted an "A" grade on our from the Department of Health. The location of our venue in a riverfront park lends itself to some difficult challenges, though our pest control company & Hudson River Park are working closely together to address this recent activity. I am sorry for any inconvenience.

This place is BEAUTIFUL!!!! The food was great. I would say 4 out of 5 stars. The flatbread and fish tacos were great. I also noticed that almost every table around us had the hummus and pita chips so I’m assuming they were amazing too. Drinks were good (and strong lol). I recommend everyone should try this place at least once.

I was excited to try the Vineyard since I frequented City Winery many times for music events. We thought brunch would be great. Well, I was very disappointed. We had the Seafood Tower. The lobster was dried out, the shrimp were mealy on the inside. The oysters were OK as was the Salmon tartare, but overall the experience was underwhelming. The bartender did make a wonderful cocktail and I had asked for a variation of something on the menu. Service was slow. Asked for bread but had to ask again after long period. The venue is beautiful; would be nice if they could improve food and service.

We had a great meal for or wedding anniversary. Our server, Flora, was very sweet and friendly. She gave us the perfect amount of attention and we never felt rushed. The food and cocktails were very good and we enjoyed the sunset view on the Hudson. I also appreciated that when I called to say we were running a few minutes late for our reservation, they were very gracious about it. The “single line” system for the several gender-neutral bathrooms was also a nice touch. We would definitely return!

We had the worse dinner ever at City Vineyard. The food was inedible, the place smelled like stale beer, and the most serious issue of all - the grounds around our table were swarming with mice. They clearly have an infestation problem that must be addressed.

Service was non-existent. Our server only came by to take our order (we had gotten drinks at the bar.)
Then she checked back once on the food, and we flagged her down for the check.

The food was also delivered within 15 mins of ordering, and all at once. We had ordered a salad to start, (the caesar, without chicken except that it came with chicken) and with the entrees. We didn't have a chance to give actual feedback on the food because our server didn't come back in a timely manner to check. Only when we were almost finished.

Overall, it was an extremely disappointing experience and I would not recommend it.

Scenery was great but the food and service fell short. Our server tried to sell us a bottle of wine despite us saying twice we were only interested in having a glass of wine. I had the mussels and the quality of the seafood was not fresh and brought out cold. My partner had their burger and he enjoyed it, but overall seems overpriced for actual quality of food. Unfortunately, I would not go back again.

Very lively bar scene and indoor/outdoor dining overlooking the Hudson River. Our server Brian was very attentive and knowledgeable. The margherita and mushroom flatbreads, red pepper hummus, and caramelized Brussels sprouts were all delicious. Nice drink menu as well featuring housemade wines.

I want to love this place. But I can’t. I have been here twice - both times with a big group- and both times the service has been terrible. The food is good and there is a nice selection of wines and cocktail. But the wait staff is horrible. For one, they don’t know anything about the wines. And their timing if off. They tried to take entree orders with 3 people from my table missing (bathrooms/outside) and then they brought my “birthday dessert” when half the table was gone. It was just a mess. The final
straw in the end was when they told us they could only take 4 credit cards for a party of 12! I wouldn’t have minded this rule, if someone had told me when I made the reservation. But they didn’t, and so we were scrambling to figure out who was going to Venmo whom. Not a good way to end the night. This place has a great location and a great chef- they just need to class up their wait staff and management
