The food was great the staff was extremely kind and courteous. We had a wonderful time. Great view of the water and very quiet and peaceful.
If dining outdoors, ask to be seated on the South Terrace so you aren't disturbed by building residents leaving to walk their dogs every 2 minutes walking past your table and slamming the building gate closed.
It was quiet with great food and views. Would definitely come back.
Food is ok. Prices are excellent. Service is excellent. Music on one side of the 2 outdoors seating areas was too loud, people were too loud; we asked to move to the quieter side which was lovely. You're very close to water with nice views.
Everything was great except the sharp pins dropping from the apartment building while we were eating.
Nico was great!
The food was great and the service was exemplary.
We have lived in the building since 1996, we've eaten here too many times to recall, and never had a bad meal.
We celebrated my bff birthday over good drinks and food.
Fantastic restaurant! Absolutely enjoyed the scenery. Staff was extremely kind and welcoming especially Charles! Will definitely be going back. Great spot for romantic dinners, date nights or just a family dinner.
This is a must go and enjoy an excellent meal plus service is outstanding
Amazing dinner! Awesome location, great service. The food was outstanding. Certainly coming back soon.
What a beautiful place view , service , food . Go before gets to cold !
Felt very safe. Staff were fantastic. Recommending wines and really going above and above. Fabulous evening.
Absolutely excellent from start to finish. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience for our first dinner out in 6 months! We were greeted warmly at the door and shown to a spacious table with a gorgeous view of the sunset over the water. The staff was courteous and very helpful, and we felt absolutely safe - everything was well spaced, the other tables were far away from us, the staff were excellent with masks and gloves, and everything was pristine and clean. The drinks were pricey (I mean, it is NYC after all) but expertly mixed and definitely generous with the booze. And the food was delicious. I had the fried chicken sandwich, which was crispy and juicy, with a toasted brioche bun and fries. Hubby had the cauliflower steak, which was perfectly seasoned. All in all, a fantastic night out. Thank you so much!
The food was amazing and reasonably priced considering the great view! Would definately come back.
Excellent service and great views of the New York harbor and Statue of Liberty. The salmon dish is delicious, although it would be much better if accompanied by something other than kale.
Everyone was extremely nice , attentive and the atmosphere was great.
I asked for my dish to substitute a starch for a vegetable And it was delicious. Salmon cooked perfectly.
Too many mice
The food was okay and the price was very expensive. The view was amazing
Very great food and a really nice view. The waiters and hostess were nice as well. Would definitely eat again even though it was a little pricey.
Food is great but since it’s very windy, we couldn’t stay longer. The host accommodated us at 8pm but gave us a spot when it’s very windy when there was a vacant table on the other side.
The view towards the water is beautiful, the food was all good and the service was fine. I would go back for the view mostly.
me & a girlfriend wanted to eat some food & have a drink by the water, we found this place & it is the CUTEST place ever. the staff was so friendly & amazing, the views are great, the food is great, really such a great find. we kept saying we felt like we were on vacation in paris instead of nyc!! will DEFINITELY be back!!
I loved this place, the food, the ambiance and the service was amazing!
the food and service were great, location is pretty, would definitely go back
The outdoor seating area provided a nice view of the water. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The fried avocado appetizer was outstanding. The service was friendly and attentive. We definitely will return.
Excellent food and service! We all appreciated the accommodation and spectacular view!
Awesome servers, food was deicious. highly recommend!
Romantic spot beautiful view and the food was great!
Merchants River House has two patios for outdoor dining with great views of the New Jersey skyline and all the activity on the Hudson River. The two patios are separated by an indoor dining area which will also have a great view when indoor dining resumes in less than three weeks.
The sangria I ordered was watery, tasted nothing like a real sangria, had to order a glass of red wine. I had mussels, very salty, just tasted like salted garlic.
My girlfriend had a lobster roll and she thought is was very good. I guess I ordered the wrong items.
Service was adequate but they did not offer to replace the sangria when I told him I did not like it.
The location is decent. The food choices were minimal. The food was ok. The outdoor dining is connected and close to the walkway close to where people come out to walk their dogs.
Staff was friendly and attentive. Was really nice to be able to sit outside (without traffic or people buzzing by) and have a good meal in a wonderful setting.
Great and friendly service. Delicious food
Arrived early for reservation waited 27 minutes to be seated. Drinks were diluted. Meal was disappointing. Under seasoned all in all should have stayed home and cooked.
Cute restaurant. the food was ok with excellent attentions. But what I did not like and I recommend that they should let the client enjoy the meals and not have everything brought so quickly. I felt they wanted us to leave quickly. Ah and the table for 2 it’s too small .
Very comfortable dining experience with all Covid precautions taken. Enjoyable
DID NOT LIKE they charged $60 for a $8 bottle of Pinot Grigio and salad had no taste
Liked the ambiance and location
Beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Very reasonable food/drink prices for the area. Service was a little slow at times but not outrageous. Wine list was very limited.
