This restaurant may market itself as Harlem's "Tavern on the Green", but the service is no where near comparable. I just hosted an event at this venue, which we chose because of its beautiful views and its location. However, while we did

Pros: The View

Cons: The Management and Service-Stinks!!

.

The view was really nice - everyone took their turn to step out and take it in. There's alot of space out there, so it's good for overactive kids who need to take a break while dining with adults who like to mull over their meals. I had stuffed filet of sole and a seafood bisque appetizer. The bisque was not so great, but the filet was good. My wife had this chicken wing appetizer (it's Southern food) and it was actually quite delicious. The green onion appetizer was also tasty, and so was the mango chicken entree. All in all, it was nice experience. We had a good time and the service was good. They took good care of us, even though gratuity was already included. I'd definitely go back and try it again, maybe at night this time.

The River Room, despite its beautiful view of the Hudson and GW bridge, is an awful establishment. Upon arrival, the hostess greeted my party with little to no warmth or friendliness. The service was unacceptable, there was one wait staff
