3:30 on a Saturday afternoon with thousands of tourists in lower Manhattan. They reset a table immediately for 5 of us. Restaurant was busy but then there was a lull but was filling up again when we left at 6. Brookfield Place is a gorgeous spot and the restaurant is tucked away a bit. A nutcracker performance was going on... More

Had lunch here on a nice fall day. Seating outside is nice with views of river and harbor. However, the food was insanely slow. Took more than 1 hr for a burger and fries! Food was average. Would go for drinks outside but otherwise a skip.

We had been to PJ's in the past for drinks and thought we would try it for dinner, since it was a beautiful evening. We waited only 20 minutes for an outside table and watched the sunset while we waited for service. Yes, our server was slow. We ordered and our drinks came and then we waited and we waited.... More

It was a BEAUTIFUL night in October. We were seated right away outside. The hostess was adorable and very friendly. She asked my daughter... More

Not sure why anyone visiting NY would come to PJ Clarke's... sure, they've got an okay view of the water if you can get a table outside during the summer. But you're probably better picking up some food at a supermarket or getting takeout and then setting up a picnic in Battery Park than coming here. Their chicken wings are... More

Had a pleasant lunch on the patio on a beautiful overcast day. The temperature was great and we enjoyed a good lunch and the people watching. The service was excellent. This is a lovely place to go for the view of the Hudson. I am a huge iced tea drinker and my only complaint was that they only served bottled... More

The view is outstanding.... thus the rating of average- the food is glorified fast food (you can just imagine them taking out your meal from the freezer having been prepared ahead of time). Drinks are expensive- and light on the pour. There are so many better places to dine for that kind of money in the neighborhood. Walk along the... More

Bloody Mary's, cheeseburgers and fries! Always good, but need to split as each serving is enough for 2. Good service and fun atmosphere!

The ability to sit outside should not be missed.Oneof the best views on NJ from the Hudson River and great access to the upscale shopping mall steps away. The burgers are good not great and a bit pricey $20 for an average burger bit thr dirty fries are really good. The staff is super helpful and Courtney deserves kudos .

Thank Thomas H

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
