celebrating 1st wedding anniversary - restaurants with good views AND food

i am about to celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary and want to make it a memorable one. i am interested in a restaurant with lovely views of the city but good food as well. the ones that i've come across so far don't seem to have the greatest reviews for food - the water club, river cafe, terrace in the sky (i think it's called), etc.
does anyone have any suggestions? i've also looked into dining on a yacht/cruise around manhattan but don't know much about it and don't want to spend a ton and not be satisfied.
i am fine to pay approximately $200 or so when it's all said and done.
any ideas of memorable/romantic nyc dining establishments?
i'd appreciate any suggestions!

        How about Asiate? Unparalelled views of Central Park and the city, gorgeous atmosphere and wonderful service.

          i have heard of it but have never been there. i will look into it right now. thank you very much for the suggestion!

    1. I went to The River Cafe only once but I had a wonderful meal, the food was quite good. And you can't get a better view!

      1. If you are into Asian food you can't get a more gorgeous view of Manhattan than at Asiate atop the Mandarin Oriental. Not cheap though.
