We stop in Matera's from time to time to pick up dinner and just recently used them to cater a holiday party. The food was a total hit! Everything was delicious. Delivered hot with everything we needed. It's a little more expensive than some of the other places we looked, but you get what you pay for and we were... More

Everything was amazing. Very friendly service and great tasting food. Worth every single dollar! Definately worth a trip when in New York either as a tourist as well as a local.

We had everything served family style so everyone got a taste of everything. The plus about this restaurant is the its BYOB so you can... More

I had low expectations based on the few other reviews in Tripadvisor. We went early, so service was not a problem, in fact, the staff was very accommodating. The place had an older crowd appeal; very traditional. The food was good. Overall, we were pleased.

This is a great place for lunch, but a little pricey. The food is good, although not excellent, and the service is only fair. It's also very popular in warm weather, and you may have to wait to get in. But the views are terrific and you'll definitely have a memorable time.

We had booked the Boathouse as part of our dream trip to New York with friends, all of us from Australia. As it was New Years Day lunch, we made sure our booking was confirmed 2 months in advance (with credit card details provided). Unfortunately, this careful planning counted for nothing on the day. The booking was for 25 people... More

Even with the pre order it took over 1 1/2 hours to get our dinner which was served at 9pm our reservations were for 630. It also took them about 15 minutes to serve the dinner & the same amount of time... More

The beer was cold,the duck and the mini burgers were awesome. And the people strolling by were good looking,and just looking at the Gondola guy, going about his business made me forget all about life in the big city, all stressed out and hectic.

Mainly for tourists but what a lovely view of the west side. Nice bar and outdoor area to enjoy a glass of wine. Food quite good now.
