The Central Park Boathouse

Ciaopiazza | Apr 16, 2012 08:20 AM

Beautiful scenery - has lots of problems. Every bottle of wine we tried to order was out of stock or hadn't been chilled. The manager spotted us a couple of half glasses of wine while he was supposedly going to quick chill a bottle, never happened. Back to the wine list. Out of desperation we went with a bottle of house Sauvignon blanc.
Food came out after more than an hour. Was good - but the waiter got the order wrong and brought mashed potatoes instead of mushrooms.
We had a lakeside table. The families sitting on either side of us at different times stood right behind our table so that our view was blocked. Both parties could have easily stood behind their own tables! That's the whole point of the location. I was looking at behind's all night.

Aside from that rudeness, the service was indifferent and very slow. Won't be back to this formerly great place. Anyone else had this experience at The Boathouse?
