We celebrated my husbands birthday over the sunday brunch. Very nice experience overall...nice relaxed ambience, wasn't over crowded, food was quite good. Swan (the manager) was very attentive to all the guests and made sure all were well taken care of (made up for our absent-minded server) thanks Swan! Would recommend the cruise...very nice way to spend a lazy mimosa fueled sunday :)

No better view of the city, rock star jazz band, great meal and attentive manager Swann that knows how to ensure his clients are taken care of. They had a staff shortage that night and Swann jumped in and ensured all the fine details of our table were handled appropriately so our special occasion was even more special. Its rare that in a dining venue in my experience that inevitable adversity is resolved so well with refined integrity. It takes a great manager to do so with panache’. This was a special family occasion for me now 13 times I’ve done the bateaux over 8 years and each time is unique. This was exemplary with my guests just impressed to no end and since my kids, their mother and grandmother And aunt were all present from across the globe I’m very grateful that Swann and staff made it special with all their effort despite being short staffed which happens i know. Greatly appreciated and of course Ill be back soon😊

This was a gift for my husband and I, and we loved it. Living in NJ we weren't sure we could be excited by the experience, but we were. The staff was friendly and helpful, food was tasty and the views were amazing. Great afternoon on the Hudson and East Rivers, seeing some of America's best sights.
