Lonely Planet review
Perched on the northeastern tip of the Central Park Lake, the Loeb Boathouse, with its views of the Midtown skyline in the distance, provides one of New York’s most idyllic spots for a meal. That said, what you’re paying for is the setting. While the food is generally good (the crab cakes are the standout), we've often found the service to be indifferent.
If you want to experience the location without having to lay out the bucks, a better bet is to hit the adjacent Bar & Grill, which offers a limited bar menu (plates $16), where you can still get crabcakes and excellent views.
