Owner description: Island off the east coast of the Bronx that transforms into a seaside resort on weekends during the summer.
Reviewed 24 January 2018

When you think of the Bronx borough, one can not mention City Island. The variety of seafood restaurants is amazing and a perfect place to enjoy with families, couples, or friends. You are not too far away from Orchard Beach as well if you wanted to walk. The only down side is in the summer months, there is typically a bunch of traffic for entry and departure.

City Island has some of the best seafood restaurants in NY. The seafood is fresh and prepared in various ways. City Island also has Italian, Japanese, American and Carribean eateries. Pick the restaurant and you won't be disappointed! One piece of advise, if going during the summer go early or you will have wait or make a reservation!

Since it was an unusually warm day, went to City Island for dinner. as a lovely drive and then dinner at Lobster House. Very nice way to spend a Sunday evening.

Do not go in summer months Unless you want to risk your safety. Other than that the restaurants around there pretty good on the food taste pretty decent. If you do decide to go in the summer just be cautious and be aware tha fights will break Out and it usually involves knives and guns.
