Such good food and a great location. We ate there on a monday night around 8:30 – unfortunately, they were closing for the night, so that had corralled everyone onto the patio and were kind of rushing us through the meal. Made for kind of a lame last night of vacation, but it was still great food, and the views would have been great with the right table. My husband and I shared the herbed chicken (small portions for each of us), and I had some kind of delicious cocktail with Ginger. Food was excellent. Waitress was nice, all things considered.

I will definitely be returning to City Vineyard at PIER 26. The food was good, we enjoyed the brunch menu and the rose spritzer was delightful. But the best part was our server Bryin. Bryin answered all of our menu questions, told us information about where the wine came from and didn't make us feel rushed.

Great views of the Hudson, service was very attentive and the food delish like the Chicken and Waffles and the Lobster Mac N Cheese.

Are used OpenTable to make a reservation, we were a bit early so we sat at a table with lounge chairs and relaxed a bit. The service was excellent at the bar and especially the host. The host was able to get us in a few minutes early as we were leaving for a concert. The staff was very attentive and checked on us numerous times during the meal. I cannot imagine a better view. Simply gorgeous.

Food and beverage were good and we may return to have them again on a week day, not a weekend; the service on a very busy, unseasonably warm Saturday was abysmal.

Perhaps we were expecting too much, but after waiting 20 minutes to get our first round of drinks (including two bottles of beer, why did those take so long?), we had a very hard time finding our server to place additional orders, for dinner and for drinks.

We were never checked on until the bill was delivered. Fortunately, a busser/barback brought us carafes of water so we were not desperate for the server.

The restroom line is comically long, like Broadway show intermission long. Imbibe accordingly.

The service at our table was great. But when I first tried to book a lunch table with your head waiter, he informed me that I could not get a table until 10.30 pm. This was at approximately 11.30 am. The restaurant was not full at all and therefore I went to your website and booked a table for one our later. When I again met the same head waiter for our seating, he seemed surprised and unwilling to show us our table. A college saw this and took immediate care of us.
Now, of course we, and especially I, felt badly handled of that particular person. No one else. The feeling of not being treated correctly due to age, looks, I don’t know, is something you could take with your staff. It hurts.
But again, everyone else was great to us.
Best regards

A chicken sandwich came as a crab cake sandwich. Mussels came cold. Manager apologetically took the misses and replaced the crab cake with a chicken sandwich and the cold mussels with a different dish. Then he brought a new mussels dish gratis for the table. We were comped the two sandwiches. Bottom line: kitchen failed. Service did the best they could to retrieve the situation. Great riverside location. They reserve a better kitchen.

I booked this for my brother for his planned marriage proposal and his girlfriends birthday. I specifically asked for a nice table and was advised by the staff that they would look after them and make the visit special for them. Nothing was done for them and my brother said it was overpriced, standard food, without even any mention by any member of staff of their engagement or his girlfriends birthday.
Don't visit!

Please call me as soon as you can. ALL of our staff were expecting your brother to propose. We spoke about this table at our meeting before service, and all managers were informed about bringing champagne and making the evening incredibly special when he proposed, including a personal escort to the rooftop. The server and manager who spoke with the table said it awkward and her did not propose. Please contact me as soon as possible so I can help coordinate something to make this right. Thank you

As many times as I've been to City Winery NYC before it closed, for some reason I had not been to The Vineyard. What a fabulous place, with incredible views. The service was excellent and the waiter was very patient with us helping find the wine we liked.

For the prices on this menu, the food did not meet my expectations at all. The cheese and meat plate was an absolute joke - small portions and did not taste fresh. The flatbread was forgettable. The main meals (crab cakes and filet) were NOT worth the prices AT ALL. Extremely disappointed in the food quality, not to mention that our server actually had her headphones in. The only thing we enjoyed about the meal was the wine.

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!

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.
