Nestled among the trees and the pathways of Central Park lies the Loeb Boathouse which houses the Boathouse Restaurant. A hidden gem in Central Park with an atmosphere unlike any other. The famous icon within Central Park offers its patrons indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor deck near the boats is perfect to grab some drinks and meet with friends. As you step inside the restaurant the lakeside dining is perfect for all occasions as it offers an elegant and yet easy going environment. As the sun sets, candles are lit and when the there is a full moon, its reflection can be seen on the lake. A truly romantic spot if you are planning to take your special someone out.

 With its location on the lake, The Boathouse also provides boats and by appointment gondola rides that can be a great addition to your next visit. In New York City, this is an ideal spot for a romantic date or a more elegant type of gathering with friends and family as there is much to do and great food to enjoy.
