Should we return to The River Cafe in Brooklyn??

We were last here in 2007 following our wedding. Had a great meal and great service. Coming back to NYC for our 5th anniversary and wondering how things are at The River Cafe, and whether we should go back for a meal on the big night.......always a high risk of disappointment going back to somewhere for a 'special occasion'.......grateful for any recent updates and experiences.

        I am so glad to hear it's still good. My husband and I went there the day after we got married and it's always had a special place in my heart. The food, service and view were amazing! So glad it's still great!

        It's the same as it was five years ago. If you loved it in 2007, you'll love it now. The service is still great. The food is good, but not particularly creative, nor as good at the price suggests. After all you are also paying for the view.
