Frozen and Highway Robbery – My boyfriend took me here for Valentine's Day. Great views, worst food I have ever had. He had the salmon, which was obviously frozen and majorly overcooked. I had the lobster ravioli, also frozen..with no sauce (except for tomato paste from a can on the side). Our waiter was inept and didn't even ask if everything was alright when neither of us touched our food. The calamari was the only thing that was close to edible. This place is a terrible tourist trap. Super expensive for terrible food. Walk to the end of the pier if you want to see the view and skip this horrible dining experience.

POOR SERVICE & TASTELESS FOOD – TWO OF US WENT ON A SATURDAY FOR BRUNCH. THE WAITRESS WAS SWEET, BUT DIDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH. (THIS IS NOT HER FAULT, BUT THE MANAGEMENT FOR HIRING NON SPEAKING ENGLISH EMPLOYESS.) I WROTE WHAT I WANTED ON HER CHECK PAD TO HELP HER OUT. THE FOOD WAS TASTELESS. MY FOOD ARRIVED ABOUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE MY GUEST, OUR BILL WAS ABOUT $80.00, WHICH FOR BREAKFAST WAS A TOTAL RIPOFF. THEY WERE DOING CONSTRUCTION RIGHT BELOW OUR SEATING AREA ON THE FLOOR DOWN BELOW. I WAS REALLY DISAPPOINTED AND OUT OF A TEN I'D GIVE IT A TWO.

The worst kind of tourist trap ever – An expensive tourist trap with hostile staff. The food was crappy! A $16 chicken pie was made with consrved chicken! Manager insisted on charging for it because less than half of it was eaten.

Enter at your own risk! Be smart - learn from the experience of others. Apperantly I am not the only one who was disspointed...

Great views, great staff, great food – I live in the UK and had booked Harbour lights for my Wedding reception and after reading the reviews on Citysearch, i was frankly quite horrified as to what to expect. However, i had a wonderful experience and cannot fault this restaurant in any way - the service was excellent, the food was expertly cooked and served and the view across the river issimply stunning when the sun goes down.

Worst restaurant three years in NYC – Went there with collegues for lunch since there were queues in other nearby restaurants. Should have been an indication but hey, we were hungry. Waited 8 minutes for them to set up the table, another 10 to take our orders and 1 hr plus later for the waitress to say the food is coming in 2 minutes. 10 minutes later and no food, we tell them we are leaving. No apologies offered whatsover and they even dared charge us for the drinks. No way we are returning to the place.

You're better off going to Angola for dinner – Blech. This place was positively horrible. A lot of people talk about the restaurant's view, which is okay, but the horrible food and service don't even come close to making up for it. Plus the river is tad smelly, so sitting outside isn't necessarily all that pleasant. Avoid at all costs. A complete and total waste of money.

Rip Off (except for the views) – The only thing this restaurtant has going for it is the views, which are excellent.

The food was so over priced and bad, that I was inspired to write my first ever review of a restaurant to forewarn others.

Buy a drink and enjoy the views, then go elsewhere to eat. That's the only way you'll get any value for your money.

barely a restaurant – The "Downtown for Dinner" prix-fixe menu had merely two options for each course, appetizer, main, and desert. Nonetheless, one of the options, the striped bass, was not available; instead catfish was served. One dining companion, a vegetarian, was told that no concessions for her kind would be made for the prix-fixe menu. Our entrees and appetizers were brought without us asking; everything else, bread, coffee, water, the check, we had to beg for from our rarely available waiter. The food was the minimum of quality you would demand from a four star restaurant. The coffee was scorched and the mashed potatoes tasted instant. In summing up, the service was some of the worst I've ever received, the food was merely passable, and the atmosphere was bordering on institutional. Harbor Lights is a sorry excuse for a restaurant; Seaport patrons would fare better dining in the food court just next door.

FAB! – Went for lunch since it's near my office and don't be fooled b/c it's located inside a mall. The view is amazing & the service impeccable. The food was pretty good tho obviously overshadowed by the view of the bridge. Highly recommended for a sunny day.

A Zero Place – This is the "worst" experience I've ever had with a restaurant. AFter going to the hassle of making reservations 24 hours in advance, getting up early in the morning & taking the very long drive into Manhattan to eat at Harbour Lights, we were rebuffed immediately. No one phoned us to tell us there was a private party (24 hours in advance no ONE KNEW THIS!!!!!!) I would fire the entire service staff & especially the MANAGER!!! This is a HIGH ZERO place in my book & I would never receommend this place to anyone.
