River Cafe Lunch?
Have been before for lunch and dinner...enjoyed both but not sure I was blown away.
Has anyone been recently for lunch? Deciding if I should consider it for an upcoming celebratory lunch or should just go into Manhattan instead...
Also, what is the price of lunch there - is it only prix fixe or is there a la carte as well?
Just ate there this week, during the Dine In Brooklyn Week which ended on Thursday. We had a Prix Fixe lunch at the bargain price of $23. Food was very good as was the service. I can highly recommend the River Cafe. BTW, in our case, the gratuity was not automatically added to the check for our party of two.
We were just there for lunch. Took some out of town(Bay Area) relatives. We and they were very pleased. I don't believe that there was a prix fixe, lunch is à la carte. In fact, we only had entrées (and split their iconic Brooklyn Bridge dessert, which we had trouble finishing between the 5 of us) and were quite satisfied. Note that they add the gratuity on to the check, even on parties of two but I think it was obvious enough that you won't make a mistake. The food and service were up to their high, if not very innovative, caliber. And the view was spectacular. It was not very crowded and it was easy to get a table by the window.
