Has anyone tried this restaurant, do they have
entertainment and do they have a room for private
parties..I'm trying to find a nice place for my parents
50th Wedding anniversary..I would like to take some of
our relatives & friends out to dinner..

Thanks for your help.

  1. Yes, I've been there and it was definitely some of the
    worst food I've had in years. The ambiance might
    appeal to some people--frankly, I found it pretty
    awful. Sorry.

    I'm not saying the food is fabulous, but the Water's
    Edge is lovely and I thought the food at a party there
    was very good considering the number of people. It's
    pricey but quite atmospheric and they are pros.

    I had a very nice party for my husband in Manhattan at
    Moreno's (some people recently posted negative stuff
    here about that place but I had no such experience).
    It was great food and ambiance and well done.
    Reasonable, too. But the private space is about 35

    1. Jeanne,
      I have to agree with earlier poster Phyllis.
      The food at the Waterfront Crabhouse did not
      impress me. I would steer clear of it.
      The Waters Edge is lovely, but very overpriced.

      1. Jeanne,
        Me again - my recommendation for your 50th anniversary
        party is Piccola Venezia (my favorite). There are
        many posting about this restaurant if you need further
        information. They also have a web site.
