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.

I celebrated my birthday here with about 20 guests on a Friday night. Our waiter was exceptional and kept up with everyone’s drink orders as well as any food items we wanted. This has been one of my favorite places for a sunset drink and they really accommodated my group. I’m really happy I chose this place for my birthday dinner!

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 wanted to try the mango sangria but unfortunately it’s only offered during their weekend jazz brunch.

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
